The last time I played, let alone hit a Wilson club was around the late 80's and the only reason I bought the driver was because of the name of the shaft LOL!  This time though the C300 driver is in the running.

Nice catch.  Video was short but gave us a glimpse of the bottom of the driver.  Looks to me like this shape is going be terrific.  Need more reviews!

BTW, I assume its being released in Australia first because it is summer there??

Driver reminds me of the old Deep Red with a Fat Shaft just with a matte paint job.  Had one in 7.5 and loved it! If it only had "power holes" it might still be in the bag today...

Ha! I still have mine in my club collection. Deep Red 365 with a .480 shaft I think? dusted it off last year and took it to the range. Still goes, but not as long as my 915D3.

Honestly that driver doesn't look bad at all, actually one of the better shapes I've seen in ages.... Power holes? People want to complain about that but are happy with Turbulators??

I know what you mean, when I demo’d the G400 not only were the turbulators ugly but the overall shape of the head was terrible. I’ll take a better shape with a couple of power holes over the G400 all day. It helps that I love the red. Of course performance will be the determining factor.

C300 cast should be replacing the C200 and many think the C300 Forged version would replace the F5 forged set.

Right after first of the upcoming year. Most likely after the PGA Show.

V6s should be around another year. Believe they’ve been out for a year if not mistaken.

are slots going to be the new thing in golf like more blades in razors? "they have one slot...we have 3 slots!!!" or will it be like Six Flags' catch phrase "more slots, more FUN!"

V6s should be around another year. Believe they've been out for a year if not mistaken.

I agree. V6's shouldn't be replaced until late 2018 if they get replaced at all this upcoming year. And by late...I mean June lol. c300's look like the AP3's IMO. Not a bad idea when you think about it. Basically try to compete with Cally Apex and AP3 and JPX Forged? Solid market for it but sadly, still a lot of bad tastes when the average golfer thinks Wilson. Maybe not bad, but not as sweet as Callaway, Titleist, Mizuno, etc.

But heck I'll pre-order a set in LH as soon as I can. Emailing my rep in a bit to see if he knows release date here in US and if there's a LH plan.
