Wilson DX soft

Summary:
Lets cut to the chase. A very decent ball off the tee which enthuses confidence. Similar feel from fairway and rough. Around the greens fantastic where the ball does some serious soft landing. Then the putting, then the putting - then hopefully in the hole. On the green a nightmare. I have returned to the Pro V1. Honestly - on the green I have no confidence with this ball - and I have tried.

Wilson Dx2 Golf Ball

Summary:
OK lets get straight on this ball. Golfers do about their ball as keeping to the same ball def helps. We all know Pro V1 is a legend golf ball, full stop no arguments. Problem is they are expensive and i hate losing and scuffing them etc etc, so i have been looking for a cheeper alternative.

The Wilson Dx2 Soft is a fantastic ball. For those of us not driving with +95mph swing speeds and hitting irons at +80 mph then try the Dx2.

It has ultra low compression which basically means at steady swing speeds the ball still gets crushed into the club face and bounces off giving better ball velocity, which equals distance. I get a strong ball flight with good run. It won't drop and stop with 6 iron plus like the Pro V1 but matches NXT and Srixon AD333 spin. It has a lovely feel as well which builds confidence around and on the green.

This is not a distance ball, it is a genuine good alrounder and Wilson should have taken distance off the lid, those days are gone, and aligned its marketing to the NXT Tour.

Summary:
Awesome golf ball, feels exceptionally good off the club face in all areas of the game. Could quite potentially outdo the prov1 if given the right chance, as the playability of this ball is in my opinion unrivaled even by titleists best. For that price, give them a go you wont be dissapointed

Wilson Staff Dx2 Distance

Summary:
I think Wilson have marketted this wrong!
The inclusion of the word 'Distance' on the box suggests that they are being pitched against the rock hard lumps that attract the high handicapper desparate for more distance at the expense of any feel whatsoever. If a high handicapper buys these they will be a expecting the 'chipping with a loaded gun' type experience that they have grown used to and will be disappointed. So good golfers won't buy them and bad golfers won't like them.
In truth this is a fantastic ball it flies well, feels fantastic, putts purely and actually looks quite cool as well. Since I don't live in a country where the ambient temperature regularly (or ever) hits 40 deg the 50 compression is perfect too. How can I a lowly 5 handicapper playing in Scotland get the best out of a ball that is ideally suited to Tiger Woods playing in Tuscon Arizona. In 'cooler' countries the normal 90 or 100 compression ball requires an enormous clubhead speed to reap any benefit and macho posturing aside I'm 'not the man'
If Wilson sold these at twice the price targetted the 'good players' ball on the market I think it would be a winner. My only fear is that due to the suspect marketting (IMO) they may not be successful and be withdrawn form the market. Seriously, if you are a decent player and want to keep all your fillings this is a 'Distance' ball worth trying. Here ends War and Peace!!
