Wilson’s new C300 golf clubs, with “Power Holes” everywhere

Published

on

Wilson launched it’s line of C300 clubs today, which includes drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and two sets of irons. The company’s C-family of clubs fulfills the needs of game-improvement golfers, as opposed to the company’s FG-series clubs that are made for better players. Wilson’s C300 golf clubs are made to provide forgiveness and distance, and most notably, they use “Power Holes” to achieve those results.

In its C200 irons, Wilson introduced Power Holes to create additional forgiveness and distance; they are urethane-filled holes that maximize face flex and effectively expand the sweet spot by creating higher ball speeds across the face. The difference this time around is that Wilson is doubling and tripling down on the technology, and even bringing the holes into its drivers, fairway woods and hybrids for the first time.

“This is the first execution of our award-winning, patented Power Holes iron technology in the metalwoods category,” said Jon Pergrande, Global Innovation Manager of Wilson Golf. “This distance technology is based on through holes being positioned around the face of the club to generate explosive distances across the entire face by flexing more at impact.”

The C300 and C300 forged irons boast 11 power holes around their perimeter — 5 holes on the sole, 3 on the toe and 3 on the topline. The C300 driver has 4 power holes — 2 on the crown and 2 on the sole — and the C300 fairway woods and hybrids have 5 power holes each (2 on the crowns, 3 on the soles).

C300 metalwoods

Matte red is undoubtedly the most popular color in golf right now, especially in the putter category. And if you’re a fan of the red movement, the C300 drivers, fairway woods and hybrids will certainly satisfy your needs.

Looking past the color, Wilson’s C300 metalwoods are also packed with adjustability. The drivers use a new “Fast Fit Technology 3.0” hosel — made from aluminum — to adjust loft. They also have a “multi-fit sole weight adjustability 3.0” by way of two 6-gram weight and one 2-gram weight to adjsut CG (center of gravity); this allows golfers to dial in a draw, neutral or fade bias. The fairway woods and hybrids also have CG adjustability for a trajectory bias — each of them using two 2-gram weights and a 12-gram weight in their soles.

The C300 drivers (9, 10.5 and 12 degrees) come stock with Fujikura Speeder Pro 58 shafts, Lamkin Crossline 2 grips, and have D4 swing weights at 45.5 inches. The C300 fairway woods (13.5, 15 and 18 degrees) come stock with Fujikura Speeder Pro 65 shafts, and have D2.5 swing weights at 43 inches. The C300 hybrids (17, 20 and 23 degrees) come stock with Fujikura Speeder Pro 78h shafts, and have D2.5 swing weights.

Drivers will sell for $399.99, fairway woods for $219.99 and hybrids for $209.99 each. They go on pre-sale December 4th.

C300 irons

With a double-row of Power Holes in their soles, the C300 irons are for mid-to-high handicaps, according to Wilson, but are designed with a “more playable, mid-size” shape.

The C300 irons (3-PW, GW) come stock with either KBS Tour 90 steel shafts ($799.99) or Fujikura Speeder Pro 78i graphite shafts ($899.99), and Lamkin Crossline 2 grips.

C300 forged irons

Like the C300 irons, the C300 forged irons — which are forged from carbon steel — have Power Holes around their perimeters, but only in the 3-8 irons. The shorter irons have a solid construction, likely to allow better players to control the spin and trajectory a bit better.

The C300 forged irons come stock with either KBS Tour 105 steel shafts ($899.99) or Fujikura Speeder Pro 85i graphite shafts ($999.99) with Lamkin Crossline 2 grips.

All of the C300 products will be available for pre-sale on December 4th, and will hit stores in January 2018

    Funny how some of the best club makers from years ago produce some not so appealing clubs. I had Wilson Staff irons back then and they were top of the heap. Why can’t they put that logo on a decent design and run with it? While we’re at it how about Macgregor? Are they even in the golf business anymore? Those were the top two years ago and now irrelevant. Certainly the folks at Wilson can do better

    It seems to me that Wilson doesn’t have anyone in staff who knows what a driver, fairway, or hybrid should look like. Their technology might be up to snuff, but as far as aesthetics go, every wood they have made Looks like it belongs on the shelf at Walmart. It’s as if they believe the upper echelon companies have a trademark on quality cosmetics. Smh

In-hand photos of TaylorMade’s new P-760 irons, plus comparison pics

Published

on

TaylorMade unveiled its new P-760 irons during testing sessions on Wednesday night with Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm and Jason Day via Instagram Live. According to Tomo Bystedt, it’s a progressive set that features a one-piece cavity from PW-8 iron, then a Speed Foam-filled design from the 7-3 irons. Size-wise, the irons essentially exist between the P-750 and P-770 irons released in 2017.

On the Instagram Live feed, Jason Day, who plays the P-750s currently, expressed concern about the leading edge design, and he pointed out the toplines were a bit thicker than his P-750s, and there was more offset, too.

Now — via GolfWRX Member taylorx300 — we have in-hand photos of the irons. In this thread, he unveiled comparison photos between the P-770 and the new P-760. In this thread, he shows in-hand photos of the PW, 8 and 3 irons from the new P-760 set.

Here are the photos from taylorx300 below.
