Some of us have no trouble remembering when Wilson Dynapower irons were what every golfer wanted in the bag. Times change however and now Wilson has made the decision to bring back the Dynapower name for an entire club family that includes two drivers, the Dynapower Carbon ($499.99) and Dynapower Titanium ($429.99).
However, due to the decades-old memories tugging at us we are more interested in the irons.
Wilson’s approach with the updated Dynapower irons was to make them so they would appeal to the majority of golfers and used supercomputer AI software to design the variable thickness face complimented by the face flexing at impact encouraged by the Power Holes or slots in the sole.
The weighting of the head ensures a low center of gravity which helps to produce high launching shots and the MOI or resistance to twisting, was improved with a design that shifts grams towards the toe. This is particularly helpful since according to Wilson’s testing 85% of shots are hit between the center of the face and the toe.
“Dynapower changed the game of golf seven decades ago and it’s time for Wilson to do it again,” said Tim Clarke, President, Wilson Golf. “These powerful irons and adjustable drivers are built with our legendary history in mind as we continue to innovate and deliver top-of-the-line products that raise the confidence of golfers at all skill levels. Our technology is second-to-none and we’re extremely proud of this new line of Dynapower products.”
