I can't remember if the others feel that way specifically, but I've been buying the Duo ball because I like how it sticks to the club.


Finally got a chance to play the Duo...I was pleasantly surprised. I'm considering putting it into play regularly...consistent feels, flight and distance all day. Very pleasantly I might add for the price!

For some reason the golf stores here in Toronto are selling last years model dirt cheap so I've been stocking up like crazy.


Not to sound picky, but I felt like every TM TP'd had a little different feel from the previous one (softer, spinny, dead, etc.). The lines were rarely straight on the ball either, which bugged the inner Hogan in me too. Very sloppy manufacturing...rushed, IMHO. However, I played them hot off the presses because I was excited to try something other than a ProV and they most likely sharpened their QA later on. Once again, my VERY HUMBLE OPINION.

I've been gaming the Wilson Staff Duo Spin in my last few rounds and I am beginning to really like this ball. It has a bit of that "squishiness" that we like and it seems to take the spin pretty well. Several people have made the comment that when hit off my persimmons and irons the ball sounds quieter.

It's all good. I've found the opposite. I've found them to be extremely reliable and consistent. They come out this year with a new TP ball and it's even more expensive than the Pro V's.

I'll give the Wilson Staff Duo spin a try this season based on what you guys have written about it.
