Callaway Strata Vs Wilson Platinum Profile Review And Comparison 2021
Callaway And Wilson have been around the golf world forever and these two club set are two of the best priced and best performing club sets on the market today.
Callaway Strata Overview
Callaway Strata has held the title of best beginner club set for a good number of years now and it is easy to see why. They are a high performing set of game improvement clubs that deliver all the performance you need for a very attractive price.
With a men’s and a women’s set available, the clubs are every much aimed at the average player.
You can get the 12, 14 or 16 piece set depending on how ambitious you are in the game and the key selling point of the clubs is that they are forgiving, easy to hit and produce good distance.
While the 12 piece set, bizarrely, doesn’t contain a sand wedge, the 14 and 16 will have everything you need to complete a round.
The Driver has a big, forgiving, distance packing, 460cc head and the irons have steel shafts with a uniflex flex which will be a comfortable swing weight for all swing speeds.
The irons are cavity back, game improvement irons, with perimeter weighting in the heel and toe for large sweet spots and ultimate forgiveness, they also pack a lot of distance for the price.
This is a beginner set but if you are just starting out, they will have everything you need to progress in the game.
Wilson Platinum Profile
Just when the Strata though they were the only high quality beginner set on the market for under $500, along came the Wilson Platinum Profile to upset the apple cart.
Wilson have been producing beginner sets for almost 40 years and this is their culmination of all of their efforts in one of the best beginner sets on the market, and also coming in at a very good price.
There is no options for the clubs you chose with the Platinum profile set but you can get the 16 piece for just over $400.
The set is similar to the Strata in terms of the clubs in the set and their composition.
The irons have steel shafts for average swing speeds, the driver, woods and hybrids and generously loft and have excellent turf interaction for long, high launching shots.
The game improvement irons are cavity backed with perimeter weighting, thick soles and excellent turf interaction for easy distance, high launch and forgiveness.
Overall, these sets are very similar in terms of performance, price and their ability to take your game to the next level. We find it very hard to chose between the tow with the Wilson Platinum maybe just edging it.
If you are on more of a budget, the 14 piece Strata is slightly cheaper!
