Superlight and super long - Wilson Staff's new D-100 line

Wilson Staff's new D-100 line of ladies clubs will boost your clubhead speed, adding some serious distance to your game from tee-to-green

Wilson Staff has unveiled a fantastic new family of ladies clubs for 2013 called the D-100. The new D-100 line-up includes a driver, irons, fairway woods and hybrids - all technically-advanced and designed to help lady golfers hit the ball further than they ever have before.

The D-100 takes its inspiration from the ladies Tour, where the world's best players are using lighter clubs and shafts in the modern era, which is helping them to hit the ball unprecedented distances. Bringing that same concept to the amateur game Wilson Staff has ensured that every club in the D-100 family is tailored to helping the typical lady golfer generate a faster clubhead speed, which according to the company could add up to 15 yards more on a drive and 5-10 yards on an iron shot.

The secret to the speed is Wilson Staff's patented 'The Right Line' technology for women, with optimal C5 swingweight, which balances the correct weight distribution across the clubhead, shaft and grip to allow lady golfers to gain more distance with less effort.

First up is the D-100 driver, which uses SuperLight Technology in the grip, shaft and head to give a very low overall clubweight of just 269 grams, helping ladies swing the club faster with the same effort. The driver has a 'hot' face that fires the ball with greater speed and distance and is large and deep with an immense sweet spot for forgiveness on off-centre drives. A super light UST Mamiya S-L50 graphite shaft (which is fitted as standard throughout the entire D-100 line) further helps to promote that easy high launch and increased distance.

The complementing D-100 fairway woods have a sleek black finish and use the same 'The Right Light' club technology to help generate those higher clubhead speeds with little swing effort. They have a low profile design that sits square to the ball for easy alignment and is makes it easier for the golfer to sweep shots away off the fairway. In addition, the club's centre of gravity has been relocated towards the heel and rear of the fairway wood to make it easier to square the clubface at impact and encourage an effortless high launch with low spin, the ideal conditions for distance.

A key feature of the D-100 irons is the large, unsupported face, which is 7% thinner than previous models, allowing faster ball speed and unsurpassed distance. Clever 'Exoskeleton technology' coupled with an undercut cavity allows 35% more mass to be moved to the sole, heel and toe areas for extreme perimeter weighting and forgiveness. The head sizes get progressively larger throughout the set to ensure the ideal launch angle, ball speed and spin rate for each loft of club.

For those ladies who prefer the ease-of-use from a hybrid rather than a long iron, the Wilson Staff D-100 hybrids have been matched to the irons to offer a seamless blend throughout the set. The special rounded sole design makes the hybrid easier to use from all sorts of tricky lies where a traditional long iron would struggle, offering greater shot control. The clever face bulge and roll design of the club gives that added distance and accuracy.

All the D-100 clubheads have a classy mint-coloured finish and complementing Winn grips for ultimate comfort and feel, which will ensure they make a strong impact in our shops this season.
