Model Reviewed: Wilson Deep Red II Distance

I got this driver with I believe a 9 degree from my father in law. Couldnt hit it for nothing at first, but eventually started cranking it. I have a very high swing speed (probably 115-120). This driver has a good weight to it and feels great when hitting. It is not uncommon for me to get 300+ yards off the tee
Looking to buy a new one that they hopefully have in the same model.

I got this driver after reading the reviews on this site. I got it for $109 shipped brand new off Ebay and it's probably the best money I've spent so far on golf equipment. The 400cc head is perfect for me, I don't know if I would've been comfortable with a 460cc head. Distance off the tee is pretty decent, I'm consistently between 230 and 240 yards which is okay considering my average swing speed. I use to hit my 3 wood off the tee and this driver is not very much longer that the 3 wood. The ball does seem to fly off the face and it has a really nice 'ping' upon impact. What's outstanding however, is how forgiving this club is. I am MUCH more consistent in hitting the fairways whether I hit it well, on the heel or on the toe. I have the 10.5 deg driver with the regular flex shaft. The shaft is noticeably stiffer that any other regular flex shaft I've hit so unless you have a 110+ mph swing, I would recommend the regular shaft. The 10.5 degree loft does hit the ball very high so I countered this by teeing up a little lower than I would any other 10.5 degree driver. Teeing up too high also means a tendency for me to push the ball to the right but I like said earlier, still well within the fairway. Is this the best driver I could have bought? Probably not. Is it the longest driver I've hit? Definitely not. But it is by far the most forgiving and it means I'm hitting my next shot from the fairway and not out from under the trees. It's also excellent bang for the buck for those (like me) who aren't willing to spend $300-$400 on other drivers. Oh, and I didn't quite believe what people were saying about how bad the head cover was until I got the driver. It's horrible! It's a constant struggle to get the cover on and off and I would suggest you invest in a decent head cover as soon as you can!

I must say, I never thought I would be a Wilson advocate, but I am now. This is a quality driver. One thing I'm not seeing written about this driver is that it's face is closed two degrees. If you fade the ball, this club won't punish you. As a matter of fact, I hit five out of seven driving fairways on nine holes today. This was my first time using this driver, as well as my first time out in 2005. Not bad for a cold and rusty swing. Let's talk about distance. The ball shoots off the face like a rocket ship. It's hot and long. My previous driver was a hotty, and I was concerned that I would sacrifice distance with the Wilson; not so. Cosmetics? The club is almost too beautiful to use. The deep red brandy wine appearance is a real eye grabber. The sound after striking the ball demands respect. It looks great and sounds powerful off the tee. After driving the ball a country mile, don't be in hurry because it will take you a little effort to squeeze the head cover back on. However, that could be a plus if you are one of those golfers who's constantly losing your head covers. Wilson has equipped the driver with their own factory made shaft, it is a Pro Lite + .428, and it greatly compliments this club. This driver is an excellent value under a hundred dollars, and is very reliable. I have no regrets purchasing it, and I'm sure you won't either. You deserve to play the game from the fairway, go get one.

Model Reviewed: Wilson Deep Red Distance II Driver

I have a nice set of irons which I have had for years but I often trade my driver for something new to play with. This time I traded for another name brand but found the shaft too stiff. Took it back and got a Wilson Deep Distance II. I have found it to be one of my better Trades. It has for a upper ball flight with 9 degrees regular stock shaft, but the shaft seems stiffer then many regulars. and is easy to hit straight. Distance is outstanding. If has a beautiful head which begged to be waxed lol. Nice sweet spot 400cc.

Somatics   Shoots in the 70s [Aug 06, 2004]
Model Reviewed: Wilson Deep Red II Distance

This club was a real surprise. Being a club junky, it's not uncommon to find anywhere from 10+ drivers in my spares bag. This club purchased on Ebay for $149 (new), is a pleasing surprise. I never really associated Wilson with quality clubs. I went with a 10.5 degree stiff flex. Launch angle is generous. the face is nice and hot. Shaft torque is more than acceptable and I found the dispersion pattern to be nice and tight. It's a very forgiving club and at 400 cc it's plenty big without being awkward. In short, the shaft feels great (a Graffaloy Prolite+ made exclusevely for Wilson). Which to me usually means a cheaper version of a shaft. But that is not the case with the Deep Red II. Distance is good, face is hot, launch angle is abundant, price was right. Enjoy.
