Wilson Staff DXi Driver

Wilson Staff DXi Driver

From Golf Magazine (March, 2011)
Category: Tour Drivers
We tested: 8°, 9°, 10.5°, 12° with Aldila Voodoo graphite shaft

Key Technologies: Loft-specific mass dispersion controls trajectory while two tungsten-rubber inserts fine-tune CG location. The 8° and 9° have weight low to maximize vertical gear effect for lower-spinning shots, while the 10.5° and 12° have weight low and back to maximize dynamic loft.

OUR TESTERS SAY: Middle-of-the-road performer with above-average forgiveness capabilities.

DISTANCE: Many testers report average length off the tee, though a few find DXi to be surprisingly long.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Accurate driver with a large sweet spot; good for getting the ball in play.
FEEL: Solid, somewhat metallic sensation at impact.
PLAYABILITY: Some testers report a draw bias that makes it hard to fade; others find the DXi simply to be a straight hitter.
LOOK: Big, simple, clean clubhead with a shallow face that provides a wide hitting area.

Appears overly big at address to a lot of testers who prefer a deeper face; not as long as some others; not the ideal choice if bending the ball is your game.

From Golf Magazine (December 2010)
It's for: All handicap levels

Utilizing two tungsten-rubber inserts on the sole to manipulate the center of gravity, Wilson is able to fit the same model driver to low and high handicappers. The weight plugs—5 grams in 8° and 9° lofts, 7.5 grams in 10.5° loft, 10 grams in 12° loft—are positioned lower and farther back in the head as loft increases, and vice versa. The result is a lower, more penetrating ball flight with the 8° and 9°, and a higher trajectory with the 10.5° and 12°. The face insert has five zones (or thicknesses) to bolster output on off-center hits. Wilson's Smooth driver, by comparison, had a three-zone variable face.

$299, graphite
