Lofts: 17°, 19°, 22°, 25° Stock shaft: Ma­trix Speed Rulz A-Type

Ad­justable hosel: No

TECH: A pro­gres­sive head de­sign means the higher lofts have smaller heads so you get max­i­mum for­give­ness in the longer­shafted lower lofts. Mi­cro vor­tex gen­er­a­tors on the crown re­duce drag.

WE SAY: The D300 is a book you re­ally shouldn’t judge by its cover. Its tiny but wide head looks more like a lit­tle fair­way wood than a hy­brid. And ini­tially we thought the size could zap con­fi­dence from the very golfers it’s de­signed to help. Yet the re­sults were re­mark­able. Our pro said it was the best Wil­son club he’d hit through­out the whole of our tests. And Simon was caught off-guard by its abil­ity to launch shots higher with­out rob­bing him of yards. The D300’s shaft weighs in at just 54g. That’s 28g lighter than some of the com­pe­ti­tion, and we felt it gave a re­ally pos­i­tive, re­spon­sive feel and meant the D300 car­ried shots three yards fur­ther than the av­er­age.

VER­DICT: If your buy­ing cri­te­ria in­cludes ease of launch, for­give­ness, good dis­tance and ball speed pro­tec­tion, the D300 is dif­fi­cult to beat.
