Wilson D-100 SuperLight
TECH TALK: The D-100 weighs 269 grams, or approximately an ounce lighter than any other driver on our Hot List. The cupface design is larger than the face on last year's model to help increase ball speed across the face, and the variable-thickness crown was created through a weight-saving chemical-etching process that allowed an 18-gram internal chip to be placed in the sole to lower the CG.
L: "It's lightweight, but it still has plenty of pop. It provides power for smoother swings."
M: "For a lighter driver I thought it was easy to control."
HOT: Good work. By repositioning the balance point, Wilson offers a lightweight driver that doesn't feel too light.
NOT: Ultralight might be an answer for some, but the D-100 doesn't really offer shaft options for stronger players.
