VER­DICT Wil­son is do­ing ev­ery­thing to help the club move faster. First, at 268 grams, it’s the light­est driver on the mar­ket by a ma­jor brand. Next, de­sign­ers mod­i­fied the cur­va­ture in the sole, rear and front of the crown (com­pared to the D200) to re­duce its aero­dy­namic drag. Fi­nally, and most no­tice­ably, pyra­mid-shape nod­ules on the top of the club stream­line air­flow around the crown and hosel. The ul­ti­mate in­tent of this lighter, sleeker shape? To let your same old swing pro­duce new and faster re­sults. COM­MENTS (L) What­ever those things are on top, I’m a be­liever. I love the way it sits square and lets you go af­ter it. (M) Ev­ery­thing felt light, lib­er­at­ing and easy to swing. You can for­give the bumps on top. (H) If those spikes help with aero­dy­nam­ics, I’ll suf­fer with it. Easy to launch high.
