Wilson’s D7 Fairway Wood promises a great-playing, highly versatile wood that will always get you to the green. Here is what Carly Frost thought when she put it through its paces.
By Carly Frost
Our all-new women’s D7 woods have a custom-tuned face with a premium maraging steel insert that creates a thin, hot surface for incredible feel and distance performance. The super-light design means faster clubhead speeds with less effort and a new crown construction with thin cast pockets adds structure where it’s needed while minimising weight where it’s not. The result is a great-playing, highly versatile fairway wood that will always get you to the green.
The D7 was lovely and lightweight and easy to swing, adding speed and plenty of length to my shots. The shallow clubhead shape lends itself to the sweeping action required to execute fairway strikes successfully. The clubhead appears to sit a little closed at address, however this has the big benefit of straightening out the shots of those of us who fight a slice. The tacky grip is soft to hold and the simple alignment arrow on the crown stands out against the black head to make aiming easy.
