This is the Wilson D300 SuperLight
00:03
and you can guess from it's name that
00:05
lightness is what it's all about.

The whole point of Wilson's stream of drivers
00:14
in the SuperLight family,
00:15
and this is the third generation,
00:17
is make the same effort and you'll increase
00:20
your club head speed because of what's been done
00:22
to this driver.
00:23
So, what you see here are curves in the crown and the sole
00:28
and really particularly the front part of the crown
00:30
to improve airflow as that club goes through the air.
00:33
On top of the crown there are little nodules
00:35
kind of scattered all over that crown
00:38
but they're scattered in a way that matters.
00:41
That pattern is again to prevent excess drag
00:46
so the club moves through the air more quickly.
00:48
But beyond all those little aerodynamic enhancements,
00:52
the biggest thing about this driver is how light it is.
00:55
268 grams total weight,
00:57
that's about a pack of Skittles lighter
00:59
than most conventional drivers on the market.
01:02
That's what makes this driver feel so easy to swing.
01:06
And it's not just light that you're swinging it easy,
01:08
the weighting is setup so that it is easier for you
01:11
to square the club face at impact.
01:13
The Wilson D300 finished silver on Golf Digest Hot List,
01:17
four stars in innovation and four stars in performance.
