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.

Very good ball for the money, I was using Srixon AD333’s before but these are just as good and cheaper.

Just started using them. Increased distances off the tee and fairway. Great on the green too.

Just put the Wilson Staff DX2 soft balls in the bag for the first time as they were going cheap in American Golf, I play off a 5 handicap, and what can I say, these balls are great, great ball flight off the driver and irons and they stop very quick into the greens. Maybe no more paying through the roof for top branded balls, checked the ball after the round and no scuff marks. Wilson Staff, I'm very impressed

This is a true players ball for a true value price. I play off of 14 and this ball is helping me aim lower , its great off the tee with wood or iron. Feel around the green is great and you wont have any issue stopping it on the dance floor. Feels firm coming from the putter so you feel confident putting. Give it a go , you wont be sorry.
