Key technology The new game-improvement irons feature a new technology called Speed Sole, which is a thin, face-to-sole transition that increases the spring-like effect off the face creating an average ball speed increase of more than 2mph compared with the D100 irons.

Wilson’s ‘Right Light’ technology allows golfers to swing the club faster with the same amount of effort for more distance. Weight saved from the face and sole is redistributed to heel and toe pods for a larger sweet spot and a five per cent higher MOI than its predecessor.

Will suit Mid-to-high handicappers who are looking for forgiveness and a way to increase swing speed while maintaining control.

GM verdict The high flight and forgiveness on offer through the entire set of Wilson D200 irons was outstanding. The feel off the face at impact is similar from the middle and the perimeter of the striking area, as is the impact sound. This is combined with Wilson’s Speed Sole technology increases the face’s spring-like effect for more distance the forgiveness on offer to make them an appealing set for golfers of any standard who often find that their mishits come up short regularly on their approach shots.

The shiny chrome finish will be liked by most and the target golfer should certainly appreciate the help of the significant offset and blade length from heel-to-toe. The back of the sole in the long irons is visible at address, a minor qualm but something we noticed.
