Wilson Reflex Golf Club Set Review

Wilson Reflex Golf Club Set

Buying complete sets of golf clubs instead of putting individual clubs together certainly has its advantages.

The clubs will perform more consistently, there will be no gapping issues and you won’t need to get the hang of a bunch of different clubs.

But finding the right set can be difficult. In the following review, we will be detailing the Wilson Reflex complete golf set.

The Wilson Reflex golf club set is a good choice for high handicappers because every club in the bag is forgiving. It’s also very affordable and comes with every club you need to learn the game.

I tested the Wilson Reflex set for myself to give our readers a better idea of how each club performs.

Will the Wilson Reflex golf club set be the right choice for you? Read on to find out.

First Impressions

“When I unboxed the Wilson Reflex golf club set, one thing immediately stood out…”

The size of the irons. If you take only one thing away from this review, let it be this: the irons are chunky.

To me, this was a sign of forgiveness. But I was also a little worried about how they would play off the deck since I tend to swing heavy.

Who is the Wilson Reflex Golf Club Set Best for?

“The Wilson Reflex golf clubs were clearly designed with beginners and high handicappers in mind.”

Most of the clubs in this set are oversized which is good if your swing path is still inconsistent.

Plus, the entire set costs around $700 so it’s priced right for beginners who want to try playing golf but aren’t sure if they will actually stick with it.

What Comes in the Set?



“The Wilson Reflex driver is set to 10.5° and is constructed of titanium.”

It comes with a stock uniflex graphite shaft. The Wilson Reflex driver feels very light throughout  your swing which is good if you’re trying to get your swing speed up.

It launches mid/high and the spin rates were in the 2600-2700 RPM region during my testing.

Behind the ball it looks forgiving but the back of the head ends in almost a point. It looks a little off but overall, I liked the forgiveness and distance of this driver.

I averaged 253.2 yards of carry with it and was able to keep the ball within 12 yards of the target

3 Wood

3 Wood

“The 3 wood also has an oversized profile.”

In fact, the Wilson Reflex #3 wood is only slightly smaller than the driver. But the face profile is pretty shallow – almost like a hybrid.

I liked the side-to-side forgiveness of the wood; but thin shots are punished pretty harshly. The #3 wood is set to 15°.

5 Hybrid

5 Hybrid

“The #5 hybrid is the only club in this set I would call compact.”

It has a surprisingly small head and looks compact behind the ball.

The turf interaction wasn’t great. It feels a little stiff through the turf and I lost some club head speed in the semi-rough.

But when I was able to make clean contact, I got really good distance. On clean strikes, I was getting between 180 and 195 yards.



“The Wilson Reflex set includes irons 6-SW.”

These are cavity back irons and like I mentioned in the First Impressions section, these irons are pretty dang big.

They are cast from stainless steel and have deep cavity backs. There is also plenty of offset so it’s plain to see that these irons were made for 20+ handicappers.

You can get the Wilson Reflex irons in graphite or steel shafts. I opted for steel. My launch angles were steep thanks to the very low CG.

And I rarely mis-hit with these irons. The sweet spot is massive and they are perimeter weighted so even when I veered off face-center I was still getting good ball speed.

There is almost no workability in these irons; but beginners will have a field day with them because they make it so easy to get a straight shot.



“The Wilson Reflex set comes with an Anser-style putter.”

The Wilson Reflex putter is heel/toe weighted to create balance through your stroke.

I liked how I felt like it was hugging the putting surface which allowed me to simply focus on my motion and follow through.

Set Composition

Wilson Reflex Golf Club Set1

“The woods in this set feature a titanium construction which keeps them pretty light.”

There is a steel and graphite shaft version of this set. The steel version simply means that your irons and putter will have steel shafts while the woods retain their graphite shafts.

In the graphite version, all woods and irons will have graphite shafts.

Other Sets To Consider

Wilson Deep Red Tour

Wilson Deep Red Tour

“The Deep Red tour set includes a 10.5 degree driver, 15 degree #3 wood, #5 hybrid, irons 6-SW and an Anser putter.”

The cavity back irons are very forgiving but I found the woods to have a muted, almost unpleasant feel at impact.

Still, this set is even more affordable than the Wilson Reflex set so it’s a good choice for beginners.

Pros & Cons

  • Includes stand bag


  • Not very durable

Overall Score: 94/100

Final Assessment

“The Wilson Reflex set is surprisingly accurate even if it does lack workability.”

The only club I would replace is the hybrid. It just isn’t forgiving and that’s very important in a hybrid club.

Other than that, this is a good set for beginners and 20+ handicappers. It’s very forgiving and will make learning your irons a lot easier.
