Wilson Staff launches Duo Professional golf ball
World’s softest Urethane ball offers ultimate Tour-level feel and distance-
Wilson Staff, the pioneering brand in low compression golf ball technology, has launched the world’s softest premium 3-piece Urethane golf ball for the 2019 season.
The Duo Professional offers the ultimate in Tour-level feel and distance with its new ultra-thin Urethane cast construction providing a soft feel, along with 6-10% higher spin on iron shots for improved control around the greens.
The re-engineered 60 compression Duo Professional incorporates a seamless 362-dimple pattern for enhanced distance and trajectory compared to rival 3-piece balls on the market. The Urethane cover provides exceptional scuff resistance and optimum greenside spin for maximum feel and control.
“The Duo Professional flies as long or longer than any other 3-piece ball in the industry today,” said Frank Simonutti, Global Director of Golf Ball Innovation at Wilson Golf. “Our aim with the DUO Professional is to give golfers the best-feeling ball and experience tour-level performance on the course. Mixed with a low compression and a seamless dimple pattern, the DUO Professional offers golfers a desired soft feel around the green without sacrificing power and distance,” he added.
The Duo Professional comes in standard gloss white and the standout matte colours of green, yellow and orange.
The new ball joins the DX2 Soft and DX3 Soft Spin in the Wilson Golf ball family.
The DX2 Soft golf ball, credited as the world’s softest ball with its ground-breaking 29 compression, is designed for the Distance player seeking less spin off the tee and soft feel around the greens. The 2-piece construction, first introduced in 2008, delivers the lowest driver spin rate on the market to aid accuracy off the tee while the 302-dimple pattern produces a consistent ball flight and its firm cover generates a higher trajectory to benefit long approaches to the green.
The 40 compression DX3 Soft Spin golf ball, regarded as the softest multilayer ball, incorporates similar distance and soft feel characteristics as the DX2 Soft, but with the added benefit of more greenside control and spin. The 3-piece construction adds an inner-cover made from a soft DuPont HPF material that increases spin on mid-to-short irons and offers greater protection on the outside to enhance distance.
“We continue to lead the way in golf ball innovation and low compression technology and the new Wilson Staff family has a golf ball to suit every type of player,” added Frank.
The new Duo Professional golf balls will be available from retail stockists on Monday 3 December at an RRP of £29.99 per dozen.
