Wilson adds to Duo golf ball lineup with Duo Urethane

Published

on

Chicago-based Wilson Staff has expanded its Duo line of golf balls with the new Duo Urethane. The 3-piece Duo Urethane (55 compression) joins the 2-piece Duo (29 compression) and the 3-piece Duo Spin (35 compression) in Wilson’s lineup.

“We have been working on a low compression solution for urethane since we first released the original DUO to the marketplace,” said Frank Simonutti, Wilson’s Global Director of Innovation-Golf Balls. “Our testing has consistently shown that the majority of golfers, regardless of handicap, prefer a softer feeling golf ball. As the industry trend is toward softer feel balls, we remain committed to providing the softest feeling golf ball in all product categories.”

Marketed as “the World’s Softest Urethane Golf Ball,” the Duo Urethane ($37.99) reportedly feels soft and spins enough for better players. It bridges the price gap between the company’s 4-piece FG Tour golf balls ($44.99) and the company’s 3-piece Duo Spin golf balls ($27.99). 

Aside from price and compression, a measure of a golf ball’s “squish-ability” under force, the biggest difference between the Duo Spin and the Duo Urethane is the new ball’s premium cast urethane cover, which is the same cover formulation that is used on the company’s FG Tour golf ball. The cast urethane cover, along with its firmer compression, will help the Duo Urethane produce more short-game than the Duo Spin golf ball, which uses a surlyn cover.

    The Duo Spin is a 3-piece ball, not a 2-piece as stated in the article.

    The Duo Urethane looks like the Chrome Soft without the Truvis technology option.
