WILSON STAFF DUO URETHANE GOLF BALLS Review
Category Comparison: Premium
Some manufacturers do not reveal or emphasize the compression ratings of new golf balls. Some models are now designed and marketed to fit and appeal to a golfers preferences for price, distance, spin, feel and control.
Wilson Staff is a company deeply committed to technology, and their latest Duo Urethane golf ball is a statement on that matter. Wilson has a long tradition of taking golf ball technology further and further, building up its reputation, or at least their claims (which are mostly true) about offering the softest balls in the industry. The Wilson Staff Duo Urethane benefits from the latest 55 Compression technology and it is marketed as being the softest golf ball in the world. The low 55 compression gizmo provides you with a softer feel than in the previous generations while making zero compromise in terms of distance. And, truth be told, for a soft golf ball this is kind of rare.
There's a new multi-layer construction at work, so the players will enjoy an extraordinary level of spin, which will come as a nice surprise for the better golfer. For achieving maximum speed and distance, Wilson used a DuPont HPF inner mantle layer in the Staff Duo Urethane while the exceptionally thin cast urethane layer on the outer cover is the best material up to date for providing you with high levels of control/spin on approach shots. There are only three golf gear manufacturers in the world which are currently using cast urethane in their golf balls, and Wilson is one of them, and maybe the best. Bottom line, if you're looking for high-end (if not best in class) control, maximum distance off the tee and spin performance around the green, the Wilson Staff Duo Urethane is the logical choice.
