Wilson C300 Forged Gun Metal: Same speed, new look!

Published

on

Black never goes out style — black suits, little black dresses, black dress shoes — you get the idea.

With club finish options some also come and go, but black continues to be one of the most popular finishes, second only to chrome…and with that Wilson Staff in unveiling the C300 Forged in Gun Metal.

When it comes to irons, the C series from Wilson is the “Control” players category — designed for speed but with a look that many better players prefer. The C300s get their speed from what they call Power Holes located around the outside of the face and sole.

Much like the popular Cortex driver, a fast frame is built into the carbon steel body to get as much power from what is generally considered standard-lofted clubs (anything less than 28 degrees in the 6 iron now could be considered traditional).

Like with the standard chrome model, the Gun Metal C300s with come standard with KBS Tour 105s and Lamkin Crossline Grips, but with Wilson you do get access to a huge selection of shafts from True Temper, KBS, and Nippon in steel.

Retail is set for 999.99 USD. More info on Wilson’s website.

    Not gunmetal. Glossy black with gunmetal face. Lies.

    Thank goodness. I was afraid the new finish would slow this baby down.

    Many people would spend a thousand on a set of Wilson
    irons. They are testing better than many other big name brands. Your behind the times.

    They all look cool when new, but give them 20 rounds and they will look a mess. These shiny black finishes wear terribly

    Once again the most important picture at address is missing. Not sure why that view is the most missed when pics of clubs are posted?

    Like em, but who’s going to drop a grand on a set of Wilson irons these days? Seriously…

      That is simple JP, people who want a quality club as good if not better than most all of the brands with all their unfounded but highly touted marketing hype. Before commenting you should hit them. Wilson is back.

        Back? What’s their market share in irons? Drivers? Fairway woods? Wedges? Putters? Balls?

        Better yet, what is your definition of “back”?

          Just try it and maybe you will find out. You seem to be one who buys the hype and marketing the so called big ones are spending Millions on. Whatever.

Toulon Santa Monica: The inside scoop

Published

on

As many have already seen this week in the forums, we spotted a brand new model from Toulon: the Santa Monica.

There were a lot of finer details going on with this putter that got peoples ears up including

  • The one-piece design – no variable weight sole plate
  • A classic head shape with Toulon refinements
  • The finish & overall aesthetics

Thanks to a ton of positive feedback, we had to find out more.  So, we went right to the top and called up Sean Toulon to find out about this new model and what else might be coming in the near future.

Here’s what we know:

The Santa Monica, that was captured is part of a larger project that will be going all out when it comes to customization and “showing the world what we can do when it comes to design and manufacturing,” according to Toulon. This line of putters will not be available on the grand scale and instead will focus on individual pieces and prioritize the customer experience.

This new line from Toulon will also include new putters not yet seen, although we have one name so far: La Grange (shout out to Texas!), and it will also include different materials not currently found in the Toulon/Odyssey line. The focus will be 100 percent on boutique, different and just for you, said Toulon. The new line will center around exercising total creativity, and also have the potential for one-off and limited-number pieces.

We don’t have a timeline for when these will become available to the public, but when we do, we will be sure to let you know.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Viktor Hovland signing with Ping”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Dave D and it surrounds Viktor Hovland’s future as a Ping staffer. There has been plenty of chatter on our forums after Dave D shared this post from @golfnation_’s Instagram account.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • cvhookem3: “Seems like he was hinting at that with his equipment changes at the US Open. Good for him. He should be a lot of fun to watch.”
  • bladehunter: “Figured. He had near a full ping bag anyway. Love this kid. I really predict great things. Loads of raw tools.”
  • ImagineThat: “I think we’ll be seeing a lot of Viktor Hovland in the future…enough where his name will no longer appear strange. He seems to really be an upbeat guy with a nice personality, and he has a nice friendly smile to go with it.”

Golf Digest’s E. Michael Johnson reported Hovland is now a Ping man, writing he “signed a multi-year deal with Ping to play a minimum of 11 clubs, including driver and putter, along with a Ping staff bag and logo on the hat.”
