Playability

Solid performer from the tee and turf; shots get in the air quickly with a straight, high, easy-to-repeat trajectory; a fairway finder that offers a fair amount of workability left and right.

Distance

Decent length, about as long as others in the category, but the selling point is extreme consistency—straight, repeatable shots with help on misses.

Cons

Ball flight can be too high—no loft adjustability to lower trajectory; higher-handicappers might need more help than offered here; raised markings on the crown elicit a love-or-hate reaction.

Bottom Line

The Wilson Staff D300 can help players launch the ball higher and straighter and find more fairways. The aggressive design turns heads, but the real benefit is consistent output.
