A Great Confidence Booster for a Beginner
October 20, 2014
I've only been playing golf for a couple of months now, and I am much more of a woods swinger than an irons guy. I've got a slower swing speed and a tendency to hit fat. All of these factors really kept me from enjoying the second-hand Callaway X-18s I'd started with. Not that they aren't great clubs, but I'm just not there yet.
I decided to give the D100s a shot after reading some reviews and seeing the great price here at Rock Bottom. I really couldn't be happier with the decision. As some reviewers mentioned, they do take some getting used to, but I felt an immediate and distinct improvement in my swing. I still get great feedback from the steel part of the shaft, but the graphite half helps me get the club head around a lot faster. Mishits are pretty straight. Fat hits still go a good long ways (maybe 60-75% of expected distance). I am hitting a full club length longer with the Wilsons, sometimes even more if I really catch the sweet spot (pulled my gap wedge on a 100yd par 3 and overshot the green by 20yd!). They feel great and they launch the ball high and long. I had hoped these would last me until I got a little better and did a club fitting, but I plan on playing these for quite awhile. Bravo, Wilson!
Pros:Good feel; light weight; smart looking at address; price
