Nice! This is why you never buy balls in bulk. There's always a nice new ball you want to try. Looks like it will be a great winter ball. Love the white and Wilson Shield.

The 50 has been a pretty popular ball among a lot of folks here because it is a good ball at a good price, and I'm curious how people like the new (and improved??) version.  It's only been available for a couple days but I look forward to some opinions about the ball !

Since Wilson doesn't specify matte finish in the product description I'd guess no.  As opposed to the Duo Professional the colored versions are described as matte on their website.

I like the regular Duo over the 50 Elite. I felt that the Elite punished mishits more than the Duo. It also felt a little too soft for my liking. YMMV.

I'm interested on the cover of the new ones more than anything else. What made the older 50 elite so good was its ability to hold the green a little better than other cheap balls, might have just been my perception but the cover had an almost sticky / tacky quality to it. Distance was average, feel was ok, but it seems to spin, not to urethane levels, but good for the price.
