Wilson Driver Comparison: D100 vs D200

Wilson D100 and D200 Drivers

The Wilson D100 driver is one of the lightest drivers available, weighing a total of 269 grams. It also features a Matrix Ozik HD 4.1 shaft that follows suit with the lightweight clubhead weighing only 45 grams. However, the driver is slightly longer than most measuring 46 inches long. The longer shaft helps promote faster swing speeds which translate into increased distance – something all golfers need. The minute you pick this club up it’ll feel light as a feather, but will perform as well as any other driver, mainly due to the quality of the shaft.

The ball flight the D100 driver produces is mid to high, with minimal spin. These characteristics help produce long and straight drives that everyone’s looking for. Meanwhile, the sound and feel is very appealing as well. The Wilson D100 driver is offered in 9, 10.5, and 12 degrees. Most of you will fit perfectly into the 10.5 and 12-degree models while someone that has a swing speed above 105 mph will lean towards the 9 degree driver. This will help keep the ball flight down a little more.

The Wilson D200 Superlight driver is vastly different from the D100 driver. It’s packed with a new head design, adjustability, and face forgiveness. This driver features Right Light Technology, which reduces weight and adds structural support closer to the face for stability and durability. The weight that was saved in the crown has been redistributed to the heel and toe portions of the clubhead to increased the MOI (forgiveness). The D200 driver also has a slightly larger face that’s thinner in the lower half, increasing ball speeds from shots hit lower on the clubface.

While there are vast differences there is one similarity – the D200 driver is also very lightweight – weighing only 268 grams. The 460cc clubhead is one of the lightest every designed, weighing 189 grams. The stock shaft in this driver is the UST Elements Chrome. Keeping with the theme of lightweight, it only weighs 44 grams. This driver was built upon the same premise as the D100 – to help you swing the club faster. The D200 driver is available in 9, 10.5, and 13 degrees and all come with a 6-way adjustable hosel. This hosel has 3 different loft settings and 3 draw settings helping you dial in the perfect launch for your individual swing.
