In for review are some Wilson Staff Duo Soft golf balls. Soft is the new long. Every golf company has scrambled to make super soft golf balls over the last few years, and Wilson has the softest ball on the planet (as of this writing), in the Duo Soft line.

As you can see above, the line comes in numerous models and colors.  There are women’s, matte white, orange, yellow, blue, pink, lime green, red dawn.

Why Soft?

For decades balls were measured by “compression.”  The higher the compression, the more swing speed needed to get optimal distance.  That’s great for the big hitters, but high compression balls don’t help golfers with slower swing speeds.  Soft golf balls with low compression are easy to compress, and easier to hit long for slower swing speeds.

Price Point

Wilson’s Duo Soft are only $19.99/dozen on the Wilson golf site. A super price point for the average golfer. A super gift for Father’s Day, which is coming up very soon.

Pending Review

Stay tuned full HOG review later this summer. I don’t normally play soft compression balls, but I’m curious to see how they perform. My swing speed isn’t getting any faster year after year.
