Pros: Straight, no loss in distance, good spin control

Cons: none at this time

During a practice round, a playing partner let me try one one of these balls after I complained about the price of the current ball I was playing . He said I would like it and it made him an instant convert. Wow, he was right. It held a straight path in the air, it checked up nicely on approach shots, and gave me another 7 yards on approach shots. Being a high trajectory hitter, I am accustomed to hitting my approach shots frustratitingly short and/or missing the green left or right. This ball put me closer to the hole each time and was easier to hit the greens (how did they do that?). It has great, no loss in distance off of the tee too. I bought a [very hard to find] box and now "treasure them" for tournament play. It is very responsive on short chips also and likes to "fly" more and "roll" less. This ball doesn't scuff as easily as Titleist NXT and stays "brighter" longer.  I use Texan and Adams A7 wedges.

It stinks posting a comment to your own post but I played this ball again today in the wind for 9 holes. I hit it longer and straighter than the high end ball, it responded great on approach shots, but DID NOT SPIN as good as I previously thought but WAS EASY TO ADJUST to the lack of spin on short chips. I shot plus 4 without using my handicap of 12.1 on 9 holes while testing this ball again.
It DOUBLE stinks posting a response to your own comment, here it is, Jan 21st, 2014. I confess that I "fell in step" with the masses and switched to Pro V1x because it is the "serious players ball" and "totally debunks the compression is all that" theory. So to save money on lost balls, I put Wilson Duo back in play on a very windy day. It performed just as good as my last post. I forgot that I said all of this 1 year ago, and thought enough of this ball to come back and tell everyone about it. Pro V1x  is easier for chipping and pitching control BUT I will try this ball for non-windy days to see how it performs. I got good check to roll out on the greens in the wind on pitches and chips. These days I am a 10-11 handicap.
