Wilson D7 Forged irons review

Wilson D7 Forged irons review

Equipment editor Hannah Holden takes a look at the new Wilson D7 Forged irons that promise higher ball speeds with high launch and spin

 

Wilson D7 Forged irons: The results

First and foremost, the Wilson D7 Forged irons are a treat visually. There is no noticeable offset and a nice slim topline which means at address, they look very inviting to hit, and that can only instil confidence.

But how do they perform?

These clubs are not just for show.

From the first shot the most impressive thing was the ball speed. Without even looking at numbers, I immediately felt it was coming off the face hot, and then I looked up to see my ball sail over the green. The speed claims are no joke – these things really travel.

The height you can achieve with these irons is also impressive but the ball flight remains stable and controlled. Often with high launching clubs it’s easy to lose shot shape or see loads of movement in the wind – this just wasn’t the case with these irons. The high smash factor helped create strike after strike that was extremely solid and I felt I could still control my flight.

Wilson D7 Forged irons

Normally my 7-iron flies 148 yards on average and I was comfortably carrying the 7-iron in this set 161 yards without having to go at it. On a good day Andy’s current 9-iron travels around 150 yards in the air but with the same club from the D7 Forged set, he was flying it 170 yards uphill – that’s obscene. Obviously this is a serious gain in yardage which many golfers would love.

If you’re looking for a set of irons that are easy to launch and will give you more distance without sacrificing feel, then I’d highly recommend giving these a try.

For the price point you can get these irons and and the performance I have seen, these will be a big seller for Wilson in 2020.
