Wilson D9 Full Range Review (Driver, Fairway, Hybrids, Irons)
Wilson Golf has deployed innovative generative computer design to create its new family of D9 Irons and Woods that are set to make an impact on the marketplace in 2021.
Using computer modelling software to simulate several club head variations, this range has been engineered to be as highly effective as possible, having compared results across hundreds of potential versions.
Succeeding the D7 Irons, the D9 features Power Hole 2.0 Technology, which allows even more energy to transfer to the ball across the entire face for effortless higher balls speeds and increased distance.
They also include a new ultra-thin face structure – reportedly the largest, thinnest and unsupported face that Wilson has produced to date.
Additionally, the Wilson Staff D9 Woods followed the same design process as the irons, showcasing a peak kinetic response club face (PKR), which divides the face into a series of fractural zones, fine-tuning the surface to deliver distance and performance.
The PKR Face has been declared by Wilson to be its most advanced yet, with the forgiving D9 Driver boasting a three-layer composite crown to both neutralise vibration and reduce weight, ensuring a lower centre of gravity for improved ball flight. Golfers can choose between a standard 10-gram or super lightweight 3-gram weight configuration to fine tune moment of inertia (MOI) and forgiveness.
Finally, for the first time, Wilson Staff D9 Fairway Woods and Hybrids offer Variable Face Technology, offering high ball speeds and high launch angles. Both clubs feature a premium maraging steel insert to provide a thin, hot face for more speed, feel and distance performance.
But how does this new range perform under the scrutiny of testing? Well, Golfshake’s Ryan Rastall, our resident Equipment Expert and Head Professional at Howley Hall Golf Club, is the best man to ask.
