2018 Official Forum Member Review - Wilson C300 Irons


Recommended Posts

Here's a pic of the alignment aid on my MCC grips. The second pic shows the tool mark designating the club as a 9i. It's on the sole as well as the face on the Ping G20's. IMG_0286.JPGIMG_0285.JPG

Attaboy Tony and Thanks for putting in the hard work and bringing us a quality review!

Thanks OG. Interesting dilemma I really like how the clubs play but I guess I'm a little fussy about the wear.

I'm glad that the C300s are working out for you. Unfortunately I'm at the opposite end - my D200s are definitely a better fit for me. It's too bad, because I love the sound & feel of the C300s. Just not the overall performance in comparison to my gamers.

I am only seeing paintfill issues on the numbers,   but if I had the amount of wear you are showing on your clubs I wouldn't be happy.  Mine are still looking shiny.

Okay, I was correct on what you are referring to as a tool mark.    Still not clear on the alignment aid.  Are you referring to the box around Golf Pride?   if not,  how are you using the grip to help with your alignment.  Sorry for being so dense.

Installed correctly the alignment aid - in this case the Golf Pride logo, is set so that when you grip your club you can square the face up just by aligning your hands to the grip. In my beginner lessons, my instruction would make my hand line up the V between my thumb and forefinger to the alignment aid which would result in a square face. Now I use a strong grip so it's offset from the alignment aid but I still reference it to know where the face of the club is in relationship to my grip.

 

Long winded explanation and probably a bit obtuse. Others may be able to provide a simpler explanation..

 I follow now.  I usually install my grips logo down.  I personally use the white tick on the bottom of the grip to try and set the face square.

Stage 2 Wilson C300 Irons.

Hello everyone and welcome to my stage 2 for the Wilson Irons.  

 

With a Total Score of 84 out of 100 next time you're in the market for new clubs at your local fitter, you should consider the C300 and not totally discount them in favor of the other brands.

 

 

I have to give a very special thanks again to the mods for selecting me. Before this I was working at getting better and even though I was fitted for my G20's, I never paid attention to club specifications and never used a LM. I know for most of you this is 'old hat' but for me it was a great learning experience. Thank you I learned a lot!

 

Great job Tony, all of you seemed to find the performance great but a couple of things let them down.

Thanks. Yup I do like the clubs and they're working for me. It's just the darn finish that's a bit irritating (hope someone from Wilson is reading our test results)

Great reviews on some very beautiful and great clubs. I have a set of the c300 scored them for cheap on eBay 400 under retail and close to my specs. I wish I had the forged as I would like the softer feel but for the price I got can't really complain. As a new Golfer I'm very pleased with the Wilson irons.

Solid Stage 2, and honesty is always the best way to go as I think all 4 of us have figured out.

 

Re: Wilson/Staff as a company - you're right, it's tough to really stand behind buying a product when the company itself really isn't behind it. I love W/S. I've now played 5 of their iron sets. They do a semi-decent job on social media, which honestly they did a lot better when Michael Vrska was still there. But yeah, it's hard to continue to want to promote a brand when they don't seem to want to help promote themselves, AND the hard goods simply don't live up to expectations. That phone call recap was painful, as is the warranty process.

Great write up on your stage 2. So far my C300's are working for me. However, as you stated if I had to shell out 899. it would be questionable if they would be my first choice.

Very good review, imo. Sorry to hear Wilson customer service is sub-par and the clubs weren't a great fit. I honestly hope people that matter from these companies get to see these when they don't go so well.

Honestly its probably a good case study in modern business silo's. It's apparent after being here for awhile that someone from Wilson's Marketing team is working hard. Sponsoring giveaways and competitions, finding sites like ours to do testings, etc.. It would seem though that there is a very distinct division between Wilsons Customer Service / Sales team / and Marketing division. Someone is seeking out MGS to get these products in peoples hands, and if I had to guess, I would say that poor marketing person is the one most likely to be updating their resume. It's hard to sell people on a company that appears to have structural issues and especially in a sector where customer service is expected to be better than most other industries. 

 

Anyway, Thanks for the reviews guys. A lot of hard work obviously went into this and as always, thanks for not holding back. People need the truth and I think Wilson does as well. Stellar reviews everyone.
