Thoughts & review of Wilson Duo Golf Balls???
Golf Gear mentioned in this thread:
I just recently began playing the wilson staff duo and its a great ball. This ball is long and straight of the tee and soft around the green its a great ball. I'm 15 and have an average swing speed of about 105-110 and this ball works great, playing this ball I've broke 80 my last two trips out playing this ball. I my normal miss is a push and with this ball i noticed my misses were drawing back. overall i give it a 9/10
I tried one today for 10 holes. I quite liked it for putting, it didn't really feel any different than my usual TP5. I did find that it had very little feel coming off the irons and hybrids. It was almost like swinging without a ball, it was a very strange experience. I didn't really get to test spin on approach or short game as it was quite cold (~2C) and the greens were hard as a rock. I'll be curious to see how they do once it warms up.
I never had an opportunity to try driver or fairway woods with it. I also didn't notice any appreciable distance differences with the TP5. I did notice that it discoloured quite quickly, not sure what to make of that.
Factor in the price and I'd call it a decent ball.

I played it on rained soaked course today. The ball seems to have higher trajectory. I didn't notice much spin, i.e, the ball went straight on solid shots. Distance seems to be above average. Ball feels very soft and acted like one around green. Overall, I am impressed and it should serve well for mid to high handicappers.
Great ball, especially when playing with forged irons, sometimes I feel like I whiffed the ball until I look up. I've played them side by side with every ball imaginable (found in the woods since I'm there a lot), The only reason i prefer the FG Tour is b/c i got one to spin back on the green. Other than that it's really soft and does not lose any distance.
