When they came out, people here said they were essentially a remake of the original FG Tour, but with better durability.

They're out there at a good price. Not sure how they compare other than they are softer a nice ball.

Duo U is way softer than the original FG Tour.

I tried it when it came out about 4 years ago--imo it should be cheaper since it hasn't been improved and there has been no newer version--and it's a decent ball except for the cover durability.  Below average compared to other urethane balls.

I really like this ball, and find it similar to the original Chromesoft. However, at $38 a dozen, it's not really a great deal. I prefer the FG Tour for just a little more. And I don't find much difference between it and the Srixon Q-Star Tour and Kirkland Signature 3 piece for significantly less.

If Wilson changed their price points a little, I think they'd be homeruns. Duo - 17.99, Duo Spin 23.99, Duo Urethane 29.99, FG Tour $39.99.

At that price it's fine, but I don't love waiting for closesouts to hoard balls.

I play it often and enjoy it. I tried many different balls last year including the Chrome soft and Chrome soft x, TP5, Srixon Z-Star and Q-Star Tour and I liked it over all of those...mainly because I couldn't tell a huge difference between it and the more expensive balls and it felt nice chipping and putting. It also felt like it would jump off my driver more than other balls (not saying it always went farther, but felt nice). My local shop had a hard time selling them, mainly because I think people associate Wilson with being cheaper, at full price and had them marked down to $25 a dozen so I stocked up at that price.
Driver: Ping G400 Max (8*)
Wood: Cobra F6 Baffler (17.5)
Hybrid:Cobra F7 (22*)
Cobra F8 (25*)
Irons: Ping iBlade (6-PW)
Wedges: Ping Glide 2.0 Stealth (50* SS, 54* SS, 58* WS)
Putter: Ping Sigma G Tess
Ball: Wilson Staff Duo Urethane
