The Wilson Staff Duo Urethane golf ball adds a urethane cover to the softest ball in golf. Tremendous short game performance.
There are few golf balls with as rabid a following as the Wilson Staff Duo. Players of all stripes love the uber-soft feel, strong performance, and the excellent value. Last year, Wilson Staff added to the Duo family with the Duo Spin, and this year the line is being completed with the more premium Duo Urethane.
The feel of the Duo is the primary reason why golfers love it, and the Duo Urethane will not disappoint Duo Nation. Just like the other versions, the Duo Urethane feels like a tennis ball when you hit it with the driver – you feel the ball compress against the face and explodes down the fairway.
Where the Duo Urethane feels even softer than the other Duo balls is in the short game. The Duo U is nearly silent off the putter, just a dull, soft “thud” at impact. With the wedges it’s equally soft and almost feels sticky
Wilson Staff uses a three-tier system for players: D, C, and F. The D player is the high handicapper, best suited for the standard Duo. As I discussed in my review of the Duo Spin, the mid-handicap C player is that ball’s target – there’s more short game spin, but it’s still a bit short of a tour ball.
At $38/dozen, the Wilson Staff Duo Urethane is the most expensive Duo, but its performance validates the price. It maintains the classic Duo feel while boosting the short game spin to the level of $45+ tour balls. If you love short game spin but want a softer feel, check out the Duo Urethane.
