Anyone else have badges falling off of Wilson C300s?

As much as I love the quality & value that W/S brings to the table, this is a side effect of their company size and price point. I wouldn't expect the same response from W/S than a Ping or a Titleist or Callaway... just as I wouldn't expect the same level of service from a dealership if I bought a Corolla vs a Lexus. 

I do like that W/S will help out if you send the club back, and I understand their reasoning, but they just don't sell at the volume of a major OEM, so they're not going to have parts from clubs built 10-20 years ago like a Ping.

In any event - I hope this all works out for the OP. W/S has always been open with communications in my experience and I'm looking forward to a pic of the irons with new badges on them.

 

The thing is Wilson Golf was one of, if not the largest of the OEM’s at one point. In the 1960’s, 70’s and even the 80’s, Wilson Irons were in most people’s bags. Once they started selling junk clubs through WalMart they diluted the brand to the point serious golfers wanted nothing to do with them.

 

I don’t know how many articles I’ve read, usually with every new Wilson release lately, how the President or CEO of Wilson declares that “Wilson is back” with their C300 irons, or their Triton driver.

 

They should be able to fix a faulty club. They should care that their club in a players bag represents quality. How much would it cost for them to pay for shipping to have the club sent to them for repair? Now how much money are they losing when players have the perception that they are still a Walmart brand?

 

“Driver vs. Driver”, Power Holes, whatever. Wilson is still Wilson.

I had a badge issue with a different brand, I hit a lot at the range=clean my cleans a lot. I think the water allow the dirt to get behind the badge and work at the stick back. I called TE and they sent me some new badges. Many badges are club specific as they add swing weight. good luck

I wanted to follow up again on this issue because it would otherwise be unfair to Wilson. I also would like to highlight the customer service I've received from Diamond Tour/Hurricane Golf and owner Jason Hiland.

Jason personally reached out to my by phone today to confirm my email address so he could loop me in on a thread with his Wilson territory rep. Wilson is going to be sending a prepaid label for the two clubs, and they will be repairing and returning them to me at no charge.

I am shocked at the excellent customer service provided by Jason -- probably near the best retail experience of my life to this point. He was insistent that even though the clubs were demos that he would stand by the products he sells 100 percent. 

Again, Wilson customer service was certainly not in the wrong here as their policy officially states they do not warranty clubs purchased through eBay or Craigslist. But massive appreciation to Jason and Diamond Tour for their work in making this a happy ending.

That's great to hear - and appreciate the follow up.

That's pretty amazing customer service.  (A lost art these days, sadly)  I was not familiar with Diamond Tour/Hurricane prior to this thread, but you can tell Jason that I will find SOMETHING to purchase from them just because they hooked you up.  Even if I don't need the item, which I probably won't/don't. 🤣

Great to hear! A couple of bucks for shipping and a few minutes of labor and Wilson wins you as a customer. That’s how companies should operate. Good on them and Diamond Tour for taking care of you.

Might take a look at their new brand Sub 70. Very nice looking irons and wedges. They will be part of MGS testing this year, I believe.

IMHO DJ nailed it in all 3 of his posts--- DTG are great people to deal with I have dealt with them for years---- Lord only knows how many sets of X-22 clones I ordered from them and built back when they were the rage. I have not ordered much from them or anyone else in the last couple of years since I have not done much "outside work" in my shop recently. I had a lot of ferrules etc from where I bought out the supply from another golf shop up the street that closed down. Grips etc I have a local source I get them from at a discount and time I pay P&H it comes out the same.

Very interesting irons, and definately well priced. Looks like they’ve got a version of the “hollow” club like the i500 or p790, but I don’t know if it’s forged or not, guessing not. 

I wonder if I should become a “guinea pig” and get a set...🤔

Has been my experience as well. Obviously, lofts are strong. But with the KBS Tour 90s I still have been getting a nice ball flight.

I was very impressed with DTG. I will be ordering more from them in the future.

I hope that they will eventually release the heads as separate components. Very nice look to everything, especially the wedges.

Hey I just has the same issue with my C300 5 iron. Was at the range and it just popped off the face. I found the piece and still in tact. But not sure what I should use to put it back on the club? Maybe a super glue? I don't want to effect the club though. I have used the club without the plastic piece on the face and honestly it doesn't effect the shot at all. But would like it back on for looks. Any ideas?

I would think some sort of silicone adhesive or flexible epoxy would be your best bet. Wilson used some sort of double-sided tape, if I remember correctly.
