WILSON STAFF D250

Stock shaft: Wilson Staff D250 by FST (s) UST ProForce (g)
7i loft/length: 31° / 37.5”
TECH: Right Light Technology removes every last gram of mass from the golf club’s head, shaft and grip to allow players to swing faster with the same amount of effort. A new Speed Sole expands the sweetspot lower in the face where amateurs typically impact shots.
WE SAY: With the new D300’s price going up (because of the latest FLX Face tech) Wilson realised they needed to cover off a slightly lower price point with the D250s. We’re always asked about how much difference tech really makes, and the D250s offer the perfect chance for comparison. A 4mph slower ball speed and 6.4m less carry distance compared to the D300 isn’t ideal. But compared to the test average the D250 was 0.9m shorter and 1mph slower in terms of ball speed, which isn’t bad at all considering the cost.
VERDICT: It couldn’t quite keep up with its more expensive brother, but then it was never designed to. For those wanting a decent set of forgiving irons on a budget in 2017 the D250’s certainly stack up.
