Wilson D300

The Verdict: Ping has a penchant for making irons that are easy to hit, and this is one of its best. A heat-treating process produces a face that's 40-percent stronger (than the Karsten, Ping's previous model in this category) in the 4- through 8-irons for extra ball speed. Lighter swingweights in the 4- through 6-irons also make it easier to square at impact. The clubface is thinner than the Karsten model and, in conjunction with the topline and sole, creates a diving-board-like effect to generate more ball speed. Cosmetically, there's an addition of a ferrule for the first time on a G-Series iron. These irons won't eliminate all your mistakes, but they're about as close as you're going to get.

    A club that will make any golfer better.

    Everything is sharp and classic looking. The off-set inspires confidence that it is going to get the ball in the air for you. Surprisingly soft for a non-forged iron. These clubs promote a smooth, easy swing tempo into the ball.

    The look at address is as comforting as you will find.

    The big, wide sole tells me I'm going to be able to hit these from anywhere, and it'll cut through the grass like a champ. There's no turf on the planet that is gonna stop this club from tearing through it.
