Wilson reinvigorates world's softest 2-piece ball


Wilson Golf has added supercharged Velociticor technology to the new
Wilson Staff DUO Soft+ golf ball, replacing the original DX2 Soft version – making it the world’s softest and longest two-piece golf ball on the market.

The new technology within the Wilson Staff DUO Soft+ utilises advanced materials to extract and amplify every ounce of power from a player’s swing to provide greater distance and exceptional feel with every shot. 

“We wanted to keep the same consistency and reliability that the DX-brand was renowned for in Europe, but add the new technology we have developed in the Wilson Innovation Centre in Chicago,” said Frank Simonutti, global director of golf ball innovation at Wilson Golf.

“Our research found when using a driver, the initial velocity of the new DUO Soft+ ball increased by two miles per hour. We then repeated the test using a 7-iron and the results were equally impressive, beating some of the more expensive premium balls on the market in distance,” he added.
