Wilson Staff leads low compression ball trend
With a ball for every player
Words: John Dean
Wilson Staff has a ball designed for every category of golfer this season with the DX2 Soft, the DX3 Spin and the DX3 Urethane.
The DX2 Soft golf ball – credited as the world’s softest ball with its 29 compression – is designed for the Distance player seeking less spin off the tee and soft feel around the greens. The 2–piece construction 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.
“We’ve been at the forefront of golf ball technology and low compression balls since we started and we’ll continue to conduct the research and testing needed to stay there,” said Frank Simonutti, Global Director of Innovation for Wilson Staff Golf Balls. “Every DX ball is the world’s softest compression ball in its category and has been developed to match individual playing styles from high–handicappers to the most accomplished player.”
The 35 compression DX3 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.
Designed for the player who prefers a soft feel and low driver 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.
Completing the Wilson Staff ball family is the DX3 Urethane. Seen as the softest Urethane ball on the market and created for the Feel player, the 55 compression ball, delivers a softer feel, while still providing exceptional distance, plus Tour performance spin and feel around the greens.
