The first thing you can say about the Wilson D200 hybrid is that it is a big improvement visually on the previous D100 hybrid.
At address the D200 matte black head has a more rounded and less pointy head shape than the glossy D100 and the longer looking silver face sits better too.
The 17-4 Stainless Steel head is the same size, but the face area is larger near the toe for greater forgiveness. This combines with a Carpenter 455 Maraging steel face insert that is there to increase ball speeds and give a bit more power at impact.
The sound and feel were very good at impact and comaprable with most quality hybrids in the market. I will miss the zing sound of the D100, but the D200 does sound a lot more solid and exactly how you would expect it to, so that is a good thing.
The D200 family of woods is majoring on being 'Right Light' and the D200 is reasonably light thanks to a 54 gram UST Elements Chrome shaft, but I would not say it is super light. Maybe that's right then?
Whilst it is called a hybrid, the generous heads of the D200 look and play more like a mini fairway wood, so it will suit those looking to replace long irons from the tee or the fairway.
If you read my reviews of the Wilson D200 driver and the D200 fairway, you will see I commented on how closed the faces seemed at address, particularly the fairway. Thankfully in the hybrid this does not seem as much of an issue as it sits pretty square.
What does run in the family is the price. Despite the RRP of £119, I have already seen this on the street at under £100, so for a quality name, head, shaft and grip this is one of the best value hybrids if you are on a budget.
Everything about it is solid, if you are a mid-handicapper looking for a wood style hybrid to replace those longer irons, then the Wilson D200 is right in your sights.
