Soft is a big thing in the golf ball market this year following Callaway's introduction of the Chrome Soft.

Wilson have taken this a step further with the introduction of the DX2 Soft distance golf ball, that together with the new DX3 Spin and the continuation of their FG-Tour model means the company now boasts the softest 2, 3 and 4 piece balls on the market.

The DX2 soft has a compression of just 29 and is 25% softer than it's predecessor and delivers even more yardage thanks to less spin being generated off the driver face at impact. The low compression of the 2-piece ball means that golfers will also benefit from green side control and spin on approach shots.

Doug Thiel, Global Director of Marketing for Wilson Golf explains the evolution of the design:

Our R&D team have been working on a lower compression solution since we first released the original DX2 Soft to the marketplace in 2007. Research over the years has been consistent in finding that the majority of golfers prefer a softer feeling golf ball.

The DX3 Spin golf ball has a slightly higher compression than the DX2 Soft at 35 but this mark still makes it the world's softest multilayer ball. The DX3 is aimed at players looking for spin and control around the greens but who still want a ball that offers feel and lower spin from the tee.

The DX3 is a three piece construction and Wilson have added an inner mantle to increase spin on mid and short iron shots whilst also increasing resilience to aid ball speed and distance.

The DX2 Soft will retail at £19.99 with the DX3 Spin available at £24.99 per dozen. These balls join the 4-piece Wilson Staff FG Tour, that retails at £34.99, which continues to lead the range following its launch in 2014.
