Wilson Dynapower Vs Wilson D300 Irons Comparison Overview
It’s been a very long time since we’ve seen Wilson release a new iteration of the Dynapower irons.
In their time, they were some of the most popular and successful irons on the market. And in 2023, we have been treated to a new version.
The Wilson Dynapower irons are brand new so we wanted to test them against a more established set of Wilson irons: the Wilson D300’s. Which irons are better? Let’s talk about it.
Wilson Dynapower Irons Overview
“For the first time, Wilson has used artificial intelligence supercomputers to design a set of irons.”
At first glance, we really liked the looks of these irons. They don’t have a busy look and a moderate cavity depth. They feature progressive offset which, even in the short irons, is pretty pronounced. But that was the point because, keep in mind, these are meant to be game improvement irons.
The Wilson Dynapower irons have a low CG that counteracts some of the effects of their strong lofts (a mere 37° in the 9-iron). Our testers found this interesting because the better ones were able to work the launch of these irons pretty regularly.
This makes them great for mid handicappers who need better stopping power around the green and help with distance from the long irons.
Wilson D300 Irons Overview
“The Wilson D300 irons are certainly products of their era.”
What we mean is that they have features that were very common at the time they came out. For instance, the D300 irons feature a soft urethane layer within the head to help improve face flexion. Beyond that, there is a portion of the face that is separated from the head for even more flex.
Last but not least, the Wilson D300 irons feature weight “pods” in the heel and the toe. Don’t get us wrong, all of these features are effective if you want more distance. It’s just all a little dated. That, and it should be mentioned that the Wilson D300’s have a busier and more distracting look at address than the new Wilson Dynapower irons.
“While the Wilson D300 irons may be better for 20+ handicap players, the new Wilson Dynapower irons can be used effectively by both mid and handicap players. We liked the Wilson Dynapower irons more because they looked better and produced just as much distance and forgiveness as the D300’s.”
