I was anxiously awaiting the end of the embargo and sharing it with you the details about the new Wilson DUO Soft+ golf ball. The DUO Soft+ is a premium 2-piece golf ball.
Wilson claims that the new Wilson DUO Soft+ golf ball is the world’s softest and longest two-piece golf ball*. It comes with 35 compression.
I found this interesting since the Wilson DUO golf ball in 2015 came with 29 compression and the DUO Spin with 35 compression.
Wilson’s explanation is that they want to give golfers the ideal blend of longer distances and exceptional feel.
Wilson DUO Soft+ golf ball & innovation
These are the new features and innovation in the Wilson DUO Soft+ golf ball:
- all-new core technology, Velociticor ™. This technology uses advanced materials to extract and amplify every ounce of power from a player’s swing, which gives golfers greater distance with every shot.
Frank Simonutti, Global Director of Golf Ball Innovation said:
“In our testing of DUO Soft+, the Wilson LABS team found that when using a driver, the initial velocity of the ball increased by two miles per hour**.
He also added that the new Wilson DUO Soft+ golf balls have got 30-odd percent higher spin than any lower spin 2-piece ball.
*World’s Softest Claim: The Wilson Staff DUO Soft+ golf ball exhibited the lowest golf ball compression value in Wilson tests of all soft golf balls on the market performed on (04/19/19) at the Wilson Innovation Center.
**Distance Claim: Based upon internal flight testing performed at Humboldt, TN test facility on 05/20/19 (90 mph club head speed).
