The Wilson Staff C300 hybrid fits into the same philosophy as the rest of the C300 range with a highly adjustable set up.

Complementing this is the Power Hole design that features 2 of them on the crown, 1 on the toe and 3 on the sole to surround the face and enable it to flex more to increase the ball speed.

Wilson say that the addition of the Power Holes increases the maximum face deflection by 3.7%, which is not bad in a head of this size.

The body is made from Carpenter Custom 455 Stainless Steel that is 50% stronger than 17-4 Stainless Steel and therefore allows Wilson to make the face 20% thinner, which in turn saves 5g of weight.

This weight is then moved elsewhere to improve the launch of the C300 hybrid, which was generally pretty good.

You can also vary the launch using the adjustable hosel to change the loft down 1° or up 2°, which will also vary the lie over a range of 2.5° so make sure you get the right set up as you can get three of the four loft settings in standard and +2° lie.

This may mean that you need a fitter to help you optimise the C300 as the sole also features a black 2g and a silver 12g weight that can be swapped between the heel and toe positions.

Putting the heavier weight in the toe will promote a fade bias and together with de-lofting the hosel you could create a very anti-left hybrid that might appeal to better players.

Even with the heavier weight in the heel I did not feel that it was going to turn over that much so this is quite a neutral playing hybrid.

The sound was pretty good and the C300 is a very competent hybrid even if it doesn't seem to set your heart on fire.

At address the relatively tall face has that squared off toe look that a lot of the better hybrids have so the C300 ticks a lot of the right boxes.

I am not mad on visual look of the Power Holes on the top, but on the sole they give it a dynamic look and this combined with the deep red colour give the C300 a distinctive look that should appeal to most.
