Hi all,

Does anyone have any experience with the Wilson DX2 range of balls?

I'm looking at moving to a softer ball (in yellow, crap eyesight!) and can pick these up for about £14 a dozen. Thing is the compression is 29!!

I have an average swing speed (90mph or so with driver) so not sure if these would be too soft. Other options are the Taylormade project (S) at £17 or the Inesis 500 soft at £14.

At what swing speed do low compression golf balls become negative on a persons game (if at all)?

This should answer your question. https://mygolfspy.com/the-truth-myths-about-soft-feel-golf-balls/

Had a read of that. Thing is if you read their 2019 ball test: https://mygolfspy.com/most-wanted-golf-ball/

They say, and i quote, "A soft ball is a slow ball; it’s that simple. If you are playing a “soft” golf ball, it’s probably costing you distance off the tee (unless you swing under 85 MPH) and spin around the green".

Its hard to know who or what to believe. One person says a swing below 95mph wont be able to compress a higher conpression ball, another is saying you'll lose distance with a low compression ball. Buying golf balls has turned into a bit of a minefield lately.

Looking on the Decathlon website (they sell the Inesis balls) the 3 they offer are:

Distance 100 - 95 compression

Soft 500 - 65 compression

Tour 900 - 90 conmpression.

Reviews have been positive on all 3 balls with MGS rating the Tour 900 highly, Golf Monthly saying the Distance 100 performed suprisingly well for a 2 piece distance ball and a decent online review on the 500 soft.

Tempted to get a dozen soft and a dozen distance an test them tbh.

I have played Wilson DX2 a couple of times and really liked the feel of the golf ball. I used the yellow and orange matte color ones. If you like the feel of a soft matte ball then i believe you would like it.

You mentioned Decathlon, I go to Hamburg Germany about once a month and go to the one there. I love the prices there, and some stuff is actually good quality.

I think I will get some and see as well. Lets see what we come up with.
