Wilson has come up with a lot for the golf season 2018 and developed a complete iron series. The Wilson Staff C300 irons have been available on the golf market for several weeks, but we would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to these powerful models. The Wilson Staff C300 series is made up of the classic club types – there is a driver, matching fairway woods and hybrids and two iron sets.
For a long time, Wilson’s engineers worked on the perfect construction of the individual clubs, using the proprietary technologies that had been used in the previous year for the clubs. The promising results led to the concepts being modified and adapted to the requirements of the timbers. Wilson’s engineers expect a significant increase in speed and width from the new technologies.
Wilson Staff’s C300 family used the Power Holes throughout. These are holes filled with urethane that are supposed to give the face more flexibility, which should eventually end in more distance. Compared to the other clubs, no power holes were used here in the thin line above the clubface, which promises a sportier look.
Wilson Staff C300 Full Reviews
After the first test strokes on the driving range, we can only confirm this – the Wilson Staff C300 clubs are real powerhouses and full of energy, which is reflected in the ball flight. Now we do not want to torment you any longer, but finally introduce you to the different types of clubs in the Wilson Staff C300 series and explain them in more detail.
Wilson Staff C300 Driver
Because all of the technologies used in the Wilson Staff C300 Driver come from within their own development department, the Wilson Staff C300 Driver offers a unique performance. One of the key achievers of the Wilson Staff C300 driver is the Power Hole technology, which – as the name implies – is responsible for the speed of the driver.
Originally, the Power Hole concept was iron, but after the great success of this technology, it has been modified and transferred to the woods. This makes the Wilson Staff C300 Driver the first driver of its kind with power holes. These unique structures are cavities strategically embedded around the face in the sole and crown and then filled with a mixture of urethane.
These gaps increase the space between the body of the Wilson Staff C300 driver and the clubface, allowing the clubface to swing more freely. In fact, the Power Holes increased the flexibility of the clubface by as much as 13.8%, which naturally has a noticeable effect on the energy transfer.
Increased swinging puts even more power out of the golf swing behind the rendezvous point of the Wilson Staff C300 driver, which in turn puts the entire clubface under tension. In addition, the urethane deforms in the power holes due to its nature, so that the club surface contracts more at the moment of impact.
This effect results in an explosive discharge, which expands the hitting area on the face and generates explosive ball speeds from any point. As soon as the golf ball hits the Wilson Staff C300 Driver, the pent-up energies discharge themselves and go straight to the ball, which lays down an arrow-fast ball start.
The speed is taken over immediately in the ball flight, so that nothing stands in the way of penetrating, straight and above all long distance.
In spite of the impressive power, the Wilson Staff C300 Driver also has playability and fault tolerance, as the extended sweetspot also allows out-of-center hits to reach excellent ball speeds, minimizing the loss of distance.
The urethane in the recesses of the power holes has another benefit, because it dampens the vibrations in the impact moment and thus contributes to a soft and solid feel at the same time. In addition to the Power Hole technology, Wilson’s engineers also focused on the Wilson Staff C300 Driver.
The first time you look at the Wilson Staff C300 Driver, you will notice the three weight inserts that have been inserted into the sole. These weights are flexible and can be changed individually, so you can quickly and easily.
Wilson Staff C300 Fairway Woods
The Wilson Staff C300 wood is the first wood of street designed with Power Holes in the head, so much in the crown as in the sole, enlarging the sweet point to increase the speed of the ball through all the surface of impact. It has 2 Power Holes in the crown, 4 Power Holes in the tip and in the sole, which completely surround the face 360 improving the center of gravity in the whole face of the club. The Custom 455 Steel provides a thinner and stronger club face to increase ball speed and distance.
In the Wilson Staff C300 series, the corresponding fairway can confidently be called the little brother of the driver, because the Wilson Staff C300 fairway wood were all the technology used, the Wilsons engineers also resorted to in the development of the same named driver.
The concept of the Wilson Staff C300 wood comes from the in-house workshop, which is why the construction of the clubs is an exclusive technology from Wilson. In the development of the Wilson Staff C300 series, an increase in ball speed was high on the list of priorities. At the same time, the playability and fault tolerance should not be affected. After much delve, Wilson’s club experts decided to transfer the proven Power Hole technology, which already provided excellent feedback from the irons, to the woods.
The Power Holes can be recognized at first glance, as these are the notches around the face of the Wilson Staff C300 Driver and Fairways, which were then filled with a special urethane material. These recesses have a special effect, as they reduce contact from the face to the body of the Wilson Staff C300 fairways, giving the club more clearance. This makes us much more flexible and can oscillate more freely during the golf swing, so that more energy is transferred from the downturn and collected behind the meeting point. Compared to the driver, the power holes in the Wilson Staff C300 Fairway are closer together, which is due to the smaller clubface. The larger the clubface, the easier the flexibility can be increased. In the fairways, Wilson’s engineers have virtually overridden this physical law by strategically positioning the power holes in the sole and crown.
In addition, the properties of the urethane filling, because this allows a stronger contraction of the striking surface, which has a kind of trampoline effect and thus a more pronounced force transmission. The increased energy transfer creates an incredibly hot face and maximum ball speeds for fast ball launches and long, penetrating strike distances. Since the Sweetspot has been significantly expanded by the Power Holes, Miss Hits reach a first-class speed, despite the missed meeting point, which increases the batting license. Thanks to the Power Holes, Wilson has been able to combine speed and fault tolerance – two factors that really conflict with each other – to create an impressive overall performance.
But that’s not enough, because the weighting contributes significantly to the playing characteristics of a iron. To help you tailor them to your personal requirements, the Wilson Staff C300 Fairway is equipped with three balanced weight inserts in addition to a well-balanced basic weighting. Their positions can be exchanged, allowing you to change the mass distribution and fine-tune trajectory and launch conditions.
With the correct placement of the weights can be a possible deviation from the ideal trajectory counteracted and the personal game preferences are promoted. The result is an optimized ball start, straight trajectories and a length gain that should not be underestimated. In addition, the urethane in the outlets has a dampening effect, so that the vibrations are minimized during ball contact. As a result, the Wilson Staff C300 Fairway produces a clear, soft feel and a rich sound.
The Wilson Staff C300 Fairway offers additional adjustment options with an adjustable hosel that allows the loft to be adjusted. This allows the three standard lofts to be changed in 0.5 ° increments by -1 ° to + 2 ° to really get the maximum out of every shot. The Wilson Staff C300 Fairway also impresses visibly with its rich red, which has been dulled, giving the clubs a distinctive look. This design runs through the entire C300 series from Wilson and has a great recognition value. The Fujikura Speeder Pro 68 Grafitschaft and the Lamkin Crossline 2 handle are the perfect complement to the Wilson Staff C300 Fairway, which will certainly delight many players in the 2018 season.
Wilson Staff C300 Hybrid
In general, the similarities between driver and fairway woods are not uncommon, as despite the different club head sizes, the structure is comparable. Of course, there are a few differences that need to be considered in the development, but in essence, a driver concept in a slightly modified form can also be transferred to a fairway.
The situation is different with the hybrids, as these clubs close the gap between wood and iron and have characteristics of both irons. Still, Wilson’s designers have been able to apply some of the Wilson Staff C300 Series technologies to the same hybrids, creating a harmonious overall package. The fact that the Power Holes, which have already been mentioned several times, originally came from the iron sector, probably facilitated the transfer of this technology to the Hybrids.
To get the most out of the Wilson Staff C300 Hybrid as well, Wilson’s engineers combined the power holes with a different face material used on the fairways and drivers. The face of the Wilson Staff C300 Hybrid is a whole lot smaller than the other two types of iron, which is why it is not so flexible. To counter this effect, Wilson chose a 455 Stainless Steel for the face of the Wilson Staff C300 Hybrid.
This steel is extremely hard and 50% stronger than comparable materials, so it can be processed very thinly without fear of sacrificing stability and loss of desired properties. The low face thickness increases the flexibility of the clubface, allowing the power holes to unleash their full potential. Because the Power Holes were also embedded in the sole and in the crown around the face of the Wilson Staff C300 Hybrid. The resulting cavity allows the clubface to vibrate more freely so more power can be concentrated from the downturn.
The increased energy transfer puts the club face under tension and extends the sweetspot on the face of the Wilson Staff C300 Hybrid. This effect is reinforced by the urethane in the power holes, as the clubface contracts more. The resulting generated Hot Face generates unattainable speeds from every point of the clubface – thanks to the large hitting area also off the center, resulting in fantastic off-center hits fault tolerance. As soon as the golf ball touches the face of the Wilson Staff C300 hybrid, the pent-up voltage discharges and transfers to the ball, which immediately takes it into the ball flight and reaches straight, penetrating trajectories.
So that the feeling of playing with the Wilson Staff C300 Hybrid is not disturbed and impaired by anything, the urethane in the Power Holes dampens the vibrations in the moment of impact. This promotes a solid feel and a clear sound.
The Wilson Staff C300 Hybrid has two exchangeable weights that are embedded in the sole of the hybrid. Depending on whether you want a neutral or draw-based hybrid, you can swap out the two bets and adjust the weighting of the Wilson Staff C300 hybrid to your own game characteristics. In a snap, you can influence the trajectory of the Wilson Staff C300 Hybrid and perhaps even get one more meter out of the way.
As one of the few hybrids in the golf market, the Wilson Staff C300 Hybrid has been equipped with an adjustable hosel, like the fairway and the driver. This gives you two additional loft options (-1 ° and + 1 °) in addition to the standard loft. This setting option can optimize the launch conditions and adjust the spin. Like its two big brothers, the Wilson Staff C300 Hybrid scores points with its powerful exterior, which stands out for its eye-catching yet elegant design in a matte shade of red and attracts everyone’s attention.
Wilson Staff C300 iron
Of course, in a new series, a powerful iron set may not be missing. The Wilson Staff C300 family has two iron models, the Wilson Staff C300 Forged irons and the standard variant, the Wilson Staff C300 irons. If you had to categorize the Wilson Staff C300 irons, you would probably rank them in the category of Game Improvement irons, since they are suitable for players with a medium handicap and put a lot of emphasis on a high Fault Tolerance. But also the power and precision comes with the Wilson Staff C300 irons not too short, which is why this model offers a powerful overall package.
This is primarily due to a technology from Wilson, which we have already introduced to you in the woods and hybrids of the Wilson Staff C300 series. Originally, however, the powerful power holes came from the field of iron, because for the first time they were used in the predecessor model of the Wilson Staff C300 iron, the Wilson Staff C200. This design convinced players in a wide variety of performance levels last year, so Wilson’s engineers decided to continue and expand on this technology because of the positive feedback.
In the Wilson Staff C300 irons, the power holes were now installed in a slightly modified and even more effective version, also the positions and the number of recesses were adjusted. The goal is to close any gaps with the Power Holes and still get one or the other meter from each shot. For this purpose, deep savings were positioned around the face, which were then filled with a mixture of urethane. This material, reminiscent of a solid rubber, gives the face of the Wilson Staff C300 iron more flexibility, as it contracts very tightly at the moment of impact and thus concentrates more power behind the sweetspot.
In addition, the power holes create a large space behind the clubface, which is why they can swing more and use the flexibility gained. In fact, the Wilson Staff C300 iron’s impact resilience through Wilson’s power holes increases by more than half to 57.8% compared to other current iron sets. The resulting energy transfer puts the entire clubface under tremendous tension, expanding the sweetspot and generating explosive speeds. These are completely transferred to the ball when ball contact, which lays an incredibly fast ball flight. The result of the game with the Wilson Staff C300 irons are penetrating trajectories and terrific distances.
The extra large sweet spot also gives the Wilson Staff C300 irons impressive forgiveness, as off center hits also benefit from the power of the power holes. This outstanding combination of speed and playability is due to the arrangement of the power holes, because while the five notches in the sole are responsible for the agility of the face, the additional power holes in the toe and topline increase the hitting area and optimize power transmission.
As it is now almost normal for an innovative iron, the Wilson Staff C300 irons are based on a progressive design. In the Wilson Staff C300 Irons, this refers to the Power Holes, which have been adapted to the respective club heads to get the maximum out of every club. The power holes of the long irons are bigger than the short irons and wedges, as they have to generate more power.
In addition, the power holes improve the playability of the tend to be difficult to play long iron. The short irons, on the other hand, score points with an ideal control during short play for precise approaches and powerful strokes around the green.
Due to their sporty look, the Wilson Staff C300 also convince visually. You can choose between the Fujikura Speeder Pro 78i and the KBS Tour 90. The Wilson Staff C300 irons have been adapted to the other clubs in the Wilson Staff C300 series, which is why the Wilson Staff C300 irons feature the high quality Lamkin Crossline 2 grips.
Wilson Staff C300 5-PW Graphite Regular RH: Iron with the power, the sensation, the precision and the Power holes technology. Urethane-filled through holes strategically placed around the face of the C300 series rods, which minimize contact between body and face while providing maximum flex and an expanded sweet spot. More flexibility means more ball speed. More speed of the ball means more distance.
Wilson Staff C300 Forged Iron
The Wilson Staff C300 Forged Iron is similar to its brother – the Wilson Staff C300 Iron – built. Nevertheless, there are noticeable differences that allow the iron into two different target groups. Both irons are in the field of game improvement, but the C300 Forged iron is more sporty and offers more control, while the standard version offers more forgiveness.
This iron is a forged iron, as the name (Forged) already suggests. In this way, the structure of the steel should remain firm and stable despite the grinding and other machining processes, in order to convey a better feeling in a stroke. The Wilson Staff C300 Forged Irons will feature Iron # 4 through the Gap Wedge. You can choose between steel shafts and graphite shafts, but the handle is standardized and comes from Lamkin. Parallel to the Wilson Staff C300 iron, a forged version also appears on the golf market within the scope of the eponymous club series.
Wilson expands the Wilson Staff C300 audience, as the Wilson Staff C300 Forged irons are designed to appeal to players at an advanced level of performance. The Wilson Staff C300 Forged irons have a similar construction to the standard version of these powerful irons. Despite the similar concept, however, there are clear differences in terms of game characteristics. While both models are in the category of Game Improvement irons, the Wilson Staff C300 Forged irons are noticeably sportier and more sophisticated, while the Wilson Staff C300 irons generally offer greater forgiveness.
The Wilson Staff C300 Forged irons forged clubheads feature a narrow topline and a clear profile that savvy players prefer. The material for the club heads is a soft carbon steel, which perfectly delivers the unmistakable feeling that only a forged iron can generate. A new forging process and the special structure of the steel to improve this feeling even more and provide greater stability. As with all Wilson Staff C300 series irons, Wilson’s engineers naturally resorted to the famous Power Holes on the Wilson Staff C300 Forged irons.
The Power Holes technology, along with the forged clubheads of the Wilson Staff C300 Forged irons, provide an inimitable performance over the entire round of golf. However, unlike the standard version of the Wilson Staff C300 irons, the number of power holes in the Wilson Staff C300 Forged irons has been reduced. In total, every Wilson Staff C300 Forged set iron has seven power holes. Five of them were used in two rows parallel to each other in the sole of the Wilson Staff C300 Forged irons and two more on the toe.
The Topline completely spared Wilson’s engineers, giving the Wilson Staff C300 Forged irons a sportier look that is particularly responsive to the player. The power holes have a double benefit, because on the one hand, the recesses create a space behind the striking surface, so that they can swing even more. This increases the flexibility of the clubface by as much as 27.3%. On the other hand, the power holes were filled with a mass of urethane, a material that has a certain elasticity.
This allows the ultra-hot face to take full advantage of the flexibility gained by pulling it together more tightly during ball contact and then releasing the entire accumulated energy explosively and transferring it to the golf ball. Since the clubface generates a kind of trampoline effect at that moment, maximum speeds are generated from almost every rendezvous point. This incredibly big hitting area is not only responsible for fast-paced ball launches and long, penetrating hits, but also for excellent off-center hit forgiveness. Particularly hits in the heel and toe range benefit from the increased flexibility of the clubface and the resulting big sweetspot, as the distance loss due to the missed meeting point could be kept as low as possible.
Of course, the overall club head design affects the weighting of the Wilson Staff C300 Forged irons. This was tuned to give the Wilson Staff C300 Forged irons an optimally placed center of gravity for world-class launch conditions. The mass distribution also contributes to a high playability for precise, targeted strikes from every situation. Control and precision were high on the list of priorities for Wilson’s engineers, and even with the first tests with Wilson’s Staff C300 Forged Irons, you’ll find that your own high standards have been met.
For the shanks and handles, Wilson relies on a high quality and opted for the KBS Tour 105 steel shank as a standard variant. In addition, the Wilson Staff C300 Forged irons are also available with the Fujikura Speeder Pro 85i Grafitschaft and other custom shafts. The Lamkin Crossline 2 handles complete the impressive package of Wilson Staff C300 Forged irons perfectly.
