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.
