Wilson’s C200 irons are full of holes, and that’s by design

Published

on

Wilson’s new C200 irons unveil a radical new construction to help mid-to-high handicap golfers hit their irons farther. It’s called FLX Face, and it uses nine urethane-filled Power Holes positioned around the perimeter of the club face to allow the club faces to flex more at impact.

Here’s how it works. The patent-pending FLX Face technology limits contact points (the red areas in the image below) between the C200’s faces and their bodies to 24 percent, leaving more than three quarters of the face untethered. Both the club faces and club heads are cast from 17-4 stainless steel, a strong, flexible material that allows for the unique geometries and flexibility of the very thin club faces.

The resultant gaps between the club faces and club bodies, called Power Holes, would allow air and debris to pass from one end of the club head through to the other if they weren’t filled with TE031 Urethane.

According to Michael Vrska, Global Innovation Director for Wilson Golf, the company worked with several different materials before selecting TE031 Urethane, which allows for maximum face deflection while still getting the look, sound, feel and durability Wilson wanted.

The C200 irons ($799 for 4-PW, GW) come stock with KBS Tour 90 steel shafts (R, S flexes). The graphite option ($899) is Aldila’s new Rogue Pro (A, R and S flexes). They’ll be in stores Jan. 8, and can be ordered now from Wilson’s website.

Did you know? The C in C200 stands for “Crossover,” which describes a golfer Wilson defines as a mid-to-high handicapper seeking distance and accuracy, but in a a more playable, midsize offering.

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best 3-woods for a high handicapper

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been looking at 3-woods for high handicap players. WRXer ‘Metro07’ is very much a Cobra guy but is open to other suggestions, saying:

“I am 53 and not a long hitter so I obviously don’t have a fast or even moderate swing speed. I got back into golf 5 or 6 months ago after being out for many years and was never really that good back then, I still haven’t broken 100 on a real course. I’m hitting my 4 iron about 175 carry.”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

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.

  • Nichex524: “I’d focus on either a 4 or 5 wood honestly… and as far as forgiving goes, most Ping models will probably be helpful enough as far back as the G20 even. Make things as easy as possible, especially if you’re not looking for distance.”
  • ThwFlyingWasp: “I know you’re a Cobra guy, but I swear the Ping G410 SFT is the easiest fairway wood I’ve ever hit off the deck… it’s not the longest out there (by far), but it’s point & shoot easy & great off the tee as well if you tee it down… plus lofts are a little higher than normal to help the ball in the air… 16* 3 wood & 19* 5 wood… it’s like cheating… it’s so good… seriously lol… try them.”
  • Striker Ace: “I highly recommend the Callaway Big Bertha B21 5 wood, IMO it is so easy to hit straight, especially with the amount of offset that this thing has. I use it as my driver also, but it is also easy to hit from the deck. Give it a try!”
