Wilson Golf has really shaken things up with its new-for-23 Dynapower carbon driver.

When you think of Wilson, you might normally expect its drivers to be on the more affordable side of the market and, more often than not, you’d be right.

However, this year they have really gone for it and I’m not going to lie… I’m quite impressed. 

I got my hands on the Dynapower carbon driver, the lower-spinning of the two options in the new family.

Dynapower Address

The first you notice is the all-new, matte carbon crown on the top of the head at address, which looks superb and sits really nicely behind the ball.

There is also carbon in the sole with a 12g weight at the back of the club which helps push the CG forward to keep the spin low.

What all this carbon has done is allow weight to be saved and redistributed to really optimise the performance of the clubhead.

The PKR2 face will remind you of the Wilson D9 driver as it, too, has been AI designed and features a variable face thickness across the whole face for maximum forgiveness on mishits.

Dynapower Face 1

When you strike it off the face, it feels seriously solid. It gives a proper thud at a lower sounding frequency, making the ball jump very satisfyingly off the face.

The ball speeds are superb, which I was really impressed with, and the overall distance you can expect to hit it are also fantastic.

Even when I wasn’t catching it out of the middle, the performance was still pleasingly high. I found I was maintaining speed and distance on my mishits, which, besides anything else, inspires confidence.

Dynapower Toe

All of this performance and tech, it must be said, comes at a price. However, that’s no different to any top-of-the-range driver – and mark my words, the Dynapower really fits that bill.

As far as I’m concerned, this is going to be a great option for low handicappers on the look-out for a low spinning head which delivers speed, distance and forgiveness.

Wilson Golf has well and truly entered the chat.
