When it comes to soft golf balls then Wilson have form and with the Wilson Staff DX2 Soft golf ball they have created one of the lowest compression numbers of 29.
Why would they do this? Well our Wilson interview with Frank Simonutti revealed that players prefer softer feeling golf balls.
Soft golf balls also spin less and therefore they are straighter, as it is the spin which takes a ball off line if you don't hit it correctly.
The WIlson DX2 Soft is a two piece construction that not only contributes to this, but keeps the cost down and the low price is another attraction of this low spin, soft feeling ball.
Whether this will be for you will depend on your swing speed as if you swish your driver at over 90mph or so then you will probably be better off with a firmer compression ball as it will go further.
Therefore the DX2 Soft will be better for mid to slower swingers who will then get the most distance from the ball for their swing speed with the soft feel too.
However on approaches the lower level of spin will also mean that it will run out a little more than other balls and that is because the ionomer cover is better for distance and price than it is for spin.
On full shots the distance was good and the feel was solid enough despite the softer feel. Around and on the greens the DX2 Soft lives up to its name with a very soft feel and not much sound feedback as a result.
If you need that feedback and spin control then this ball is probably is not for you, but if you want a good value, soft feeling ball that delivers solid all round performance then you should have a soft spot for the DX2 Soft.
