I have only played the Duo U a very good ball. Now, they are discounted heavily at Dick's. It looks like ball is being discontinued. Good thing they made their sales before the QST came along. The ball was over priced,

The regular Duo has been my normal ball since it came out and I have no intention on changing. That said I did try both the Duo U and the QST this year. While both are similar I preferred the QST. I thought it felt better and seemed longer off the tee. Both checked up more around the greens than the Duo but neither improved my scoring or compell me to change. If I were to change it would be to the QST.

I thought they were very comparable. Slight preference for the DUO because they are so cheap new, while the Q Stars are all the extras from the Srixon used ball boxes I get.

Played both extensively and found them both to be good but not great. I had durability issues with the Duo U and the Q Star Tour was a tad short for me and not as soft as I would have hoped. I played well with both and still have a couple Q Star Tours to go through, but I wouldn't buy either again.

It sounds like Wilson is addressing the durability issues with their latest release.

I play both these balls. I prefer the QST overall, but mainly because I've been able to buy them in 6 ball promo packs all year at GT.  I find the Duo a little softer, but can produce a bit more spin with the QST. Distance is a wash. As far as spin goes, no one should expect to get the kind of spin on these types of balls that a tour ball will produce. It's not even close, particularly around the green.

The Duo U is a much better feel, if you like a soft feeling ball it would be your best option.  They perform much alike but the U spins more in my humble but almost right opinion.  The Srixon does he a hard feel off every club. Could play either but at 15 a doz and a better fit I with the Maxfli U6 Tour Soft, great all around ball.
