Titleist T300 Vs Wilson D9 Irons Comparison Overview

There’s no denying it: if you’re looking at brand name golf gear, you are looking at high prices.

The big 4 manufacturers (Callaway, Ping, Taylormade and Titleist) put billions into marketing and research every year so it’s almost difficult to look beyond them.

But look beyond them you should because there are actually viable options outside of the big 4 manufacturers. And you can expect lower prices from them as well. Case in point: Wilson. If you are looking for new irons, don’t spend a dime until you check out the following comparison overview.

Titleist T300 Irons Overview

“The T300’s are a bit of a divergence for a company that is known for making irons for the pros.”

The T300 are certainly game improvement irons; but they are still tricked out with premium Titleist features. For example, the tungsten perimeter weights have undergone a brazing process to dial in specific CG’s throughout the set.

Indeed, the T300’s feel very well-balanced as you work your way from the long to the short irons. The T300’s also feature a polymer core that helps improve face flex. We didn’t really feel any difference from this Polymer material; but the face was overall forgiving.

But that has more to do with the meticulous variable face thickness design of these irons. The T300’s have a more compact shape than the Wilson D9’s though and they aren’t as forgiving as the D9’s on low-face shots.

Wilson D9 Irons Overview

Wilson D9 Irons

“We were very impressed with how easy and satisfying it was to hit with these irons.”

The tech is pretty basic: a low Cg with a more free-floating face. This allows higher handicap players to get the launch they need and preserve ball speed on low-face shots. The D9’s aren’t without their unique features though. They sport cavities in the sole that allow for more low-face flexion.

The contrast of matte and chrome face finishes also makes it easier to frame the ball which is a nice little feature for beginners. A moderate topline and sole also contribute to the user-friendliness of these irons.

“There’s no doubt that if you want to break into mid handicap territory, the Wilson D9 irons are more than capable. They are also more affordable than the Titleist T300 irons. The T300’s (even as GI irons) are still aimed towards more experienced and more discerning players.”

Titleist T300- First Impressions

The first thing you notice about these Cavity Irons is how the top line looks deceptively thin for an iron that is primarily built for distance.

The second thing that is immediately obvious is that there are a few key differences between the short and the longer irons.

The shorted irons have thinner soles, leading to increased workability that can be useful to even single digit handicappers while that trend is reversed in the longer irons, which focus more on distance.

The long irons have a polymer insert that makes these cavity backs sound and feel much better than a regular cavity back. The longer irons also have tungsten weighting in the head that keeps the center of gravity low and MOI high for ultimate performance.

The result is irons that generate quite a bit more distance than the AP1’s and can hold their own with any forgiving distance iron on the market.

While you are looking at a shorter distance from heel to toe with the Ping G400 irons, the COR-Eye technology ensures that if you make contact with the sweet spot, your ball is gonna go far. Almost immediately, our testers were nailing shots in the 160 yard range with the 5 iron in this set.

We also really liked the way these irons sounded – particularly the long irons. The cavity badge really works to enhance sound when you hit the sweet spots of these irons. It didn’t take us very long to get the hang of these irons and start sending missiles down the fairway.

Wilson D9 Irons – First Impressions


“We weren’t sure what to expect from these irons.”

We liked that they were sleeker than the D7’s; but again, we were put off by the matte/chrome finish on the face.

That became less important as the test session pressed on. We were very impressed with the forgiveness and distance of these irons.

While spin rates are a bit low, Wilson seems to have compromised with higher launch.
