Wilson Duo Soft Review - Optix Ball
Balls That Make Every Club Feel Good
This is my Wilson Duo Soft Review after using these golf balls for a few weeks.
I have been reviewing golf products for over 10 years now.
These are my thoughts and opinions on the Duo Soft Golf balls and how they compare to other options in the same price range.
I used both the Optix and regular white balls.
Everyone always talks about how great forged blades feel at impact, or how hot a driver feels pounding a ball down the fairway. Now you can make every club no matter if it is cast super game improvement iron or blades forged by the hands of a craftsman, they will all feel amazing with the Wilson Duo Soft Golf Balls. In addition to the amazing feel, Wilson added the Optix line which is a bright matte finish. These fun colors paired with amazing feel make these an enjoyable ball to play. Amazing feel that doesn’t compromise on performance is what you can expect with the new Wilson Duo Soft/Optix Golf balls.
The Wilson Duo Soft/Optix will not be confused with a tour ball, but will certainly hold its own. The main benefit that amateur golfers will find playing this ball is the tee-shot. The Duo Soft/Optix is very low spin off the driver. This means long and straight drives that won’t balloon. So for many golfers that slice the ball off the tee, these will help you hit a little straighter and a little longer. They are fairly low launching too so you can expect good roll in the fairway also. Iron shots feel incredible and also fly pretty straight. If you compress you irons hard, these won’t be the longest ball off the irons, but for a slower swing speed these will really pop, probably even adding a couple yards. Around the greens they feel amazing off the wedge with moderate spin. They won’t drop and stop like a urethane cover, but won’t roll all the way across the green either. I played on some fairly soft greens with these and they held the greens nicely off the wedges. Off the putter it kind of depended on how long of a putt it was. The longer the putt, the softer the feel as it engages the soft core more.
The Wilson Duo Soft/Optix Golf Balls feel unlike any other ball, perform very well and look super cool. While not tour balls, they aren’t tour ball prices either. My favorite was actually the Ladies matte white Duo Soft golf ball. If you want a fun golf ball that might actually perform better for slower swing speeds and feels amazing, the Wilson Duo Soft/Optix is for you. These will make any club feel awesome and will be a solid performer for the price.
