The Wilson Dynapower 3-Wood served as my fairway wood for 5 rounds of golf. I also tested it on the range and in the Office by Carl’s Place DIY Simulators.  The combination of on course testing and FlightScope Mevo+ Pro numbers proved this 3-wood can hang with any 3-wood in 2023.  It surprised me with great power and forgiveness because of the seemingly simply design. 

This is my definitive review of the Wilson Dynapower 3-Wood.

The Wilson Dynapower 3 wood was our #1 pick for Best 3 woods in 2024.


Surprise, Surprise

Everyone has preconceived notions of what a club will do or not do in their hands.  We hear a commercial, we see a tour pro, we get some insight from a buddy, we read a review (thank you) and we assume a club will work well or won’t work well for us.  It often isn’t until we actually hit it, get fit or see the launch monitor numbers that we realize what the truth is for our swing.  The Wilson Dynapower irons were the longest irons in 2023, so I suppose it shouldn’t surprise me, even though it did, that the Wilson Dynapower 3-wood is one of the longest ones I hit too in 2023.  I guess the surprise comes from the fact that there is nothing obvious for the success like super low spin, low loft, huge head, etc.  It just works!

High Launch

The Wilson Dynapower 3-wood has what my friend calls “majestic” flight.  The ball jumps off the face and quickly gets in the air.  It is 3-wood with a 15* head but it launch more like a 16* head.  The flight is high, but this is part of the surprise, this high launch didn’t balloon or float, it just carried and carried.  I was honestly surprised when I reached my ball a couple times on the fairway, expecting it to be short because of the height, only to find excellent distance.

Mid/Low Spin

The Wilson Dynapower 3-Wood isn’t low and isn’t high, it offers mid/low spin which seems to work well with the high launch so that the ball stays in the air a long time, but still holds greens on long approaches.  It seems to be a balancing act of forgiveness, launch and spin that Wilson appears to have nailed on the head: enough spin to stay straight and in the air a long time, but not too much spin for loss of distance. 


The Wilson Dynapower 3-Wood is surprisingly forgiving too.  It isn’t the biggest 3-wood, nor is the face large, but the flat AI designed variable thickness face is hot everywhere.  You get amazing ball speeds across the entire face as the ball just jumps off the face with speed.  I found a consistency of speed, distance, direction and launch off this face that was unexpected.  Again nothing obvious jumps off the page in the details or at first glance that says this club is super forgiving, it just works.


The Wilson Dynapower 3-Wood has power, Dynapower.  It starts with a rear weight which creates high launch and lots of forgiveness.  It also appears to be part of the power creation as the 12 grams of weight drives through the ball at impact creating lots of distance.  I was surprised by the distance since it had fairly high launch, yet the carry was also long so this club was not lacking power.  Wilson packed a punch in the new Dynapower line, and the 3-wood fits perfectly with the irons as having power, Dynapower.

Sound, Feel, Appearance

The Wilson Dynapower 3-Wood has a flattened appearance as they describe it.  It has a thin face, sits square and with the matte black finish on the top looks very sleek behind the ball.  It hides its size very well.  The bottom is also very clean with the large plate and simple weight in the back of the sole.  The accent colors look great too.  The Carpenter Custom 455 Steel face has great feel. Everything seems very balanced with great MOI, good CG and weight along the axis for the feeling of power at impact, Dynapower.  The thwack at impact if very pure and powerful.


The Wilson Dynapower 3-Wood has 1 stock shaft option. While this may feel limiting, the Project X HAZRDUS Smoke Red shaft is incredibly stable with just a little more launch than the black version.  It is a little more friendly to a wider variety of golfers.  I certainly worked for me with mid launch mid spin which translated with this head into high launch and mid to low spin.  It also went straight, very straight, shot after shot.  This too was surprising for me because this isn’t the shaft I would assume with fit my needs, but the results were hard to argue with.

On-Course Performance

The Wilson Dynapower 3-Wood surprised me on the course since there wasn’t much hype, nor did the tech sound revolutionary.  However, this club just works on the course.  It has power, Dynapower that crushed the ball off the tee, launched it from the fairway and even allowed some excellent recovery shots out of the short rough.  It was hard to find any fault with this club playing over multiple rounds.  It surprised me almost every time I hit it with how pleasant the shot looked to the eye and then how good the results were.  It inspires confidence that allowed me to swing even freer shot after shot.  There was not fear of right or left, just straight Dynapower.
