  1. As you all know, we have 15 MGS'ers out there testing Wilson Staff's 2015 lineup of golf balls. The testers are: Wilson DUO: Joezilla, Woz, BogeyInTheWoods, severtheties, tider Wilson DUO Spin: snuffyword, Fozcycle, TxSTCatman, SlicerB, TacoTollefson67 Wilson FG Tour: Sp0rtsfan86, MotoGolfer250, casey_0507, JudgeSmails, PBH3 Balls Being Tested: Wilson DUO: Redesigned for 2015. 29 compression (lowest on the market, according to Wilson), 2-piece ball for greater distance and soft feel around the green. $19.99/dozen Wilson DUO Spin: New for 2015. A 3-piece ball with a 35 compression, Wilson touts it as the world;s lowest compression multi-layer ball. $26.99/dozen Wilson FG Tour: Also redesigned for 2015, it's a 4-piece, urethane tour ball with a 70 compression. $44.00/dozen MyGolfSpy sent each tester a pre-test questionnaire to get a general idea their thoughts on the Wilson brand, what balls they play now and what they look for in a golf ball. We received some interesting feedback. Experience with Wilson Staff Balls Most of our testers had never played Wilson Staff balls prior to this test. Four testers had tried Wilson balls before, either the original DUO or the 50Elite. One tester went all the way back to the 80's with the Wilson Blue Ridge. Favored Ball Brands When asked what balls they normally play (several testers play several different brands), here's what we found: Titleist (ProV's/NXT/DT Solo) 9 Bridgestone (E5, E6, E7, 330) 6 TaylorMade (Project a, Lethal) 3 Nike (Mojo, PD Long, Speed Soft, Vapor 1) 4 Srixon (Q-Star, other) 2 Callaway (Hex Chrome) 1 TopFlite Gamer 1 MaxFli 1 3UP 1 MG Golf 1 Where Do You Get Info on Balls? We also asked our testers where they get their information on golf balls (multiple responses from several responders): MyGolfSpy/Other websites: 9 Golf magazines, HotList: 5 Other players: 3 Golf retail outlets: 3 Manufacturer's websites: 3 TV ads, GolfChannel: 2 What Do You Look For In a Golf Ball? Tons of answers here, but there were some dominant themes. Nearly everyone greed on two things: consistency and feel. Testers want consistency in distance and control, especially from 125 yards and in. Nearly every tester mentioned predictable action on the green (i.e. spin). Feel is harder to define, but virtually all of the testers place a value on feel, especially when putting. And when it comes to feel, we have to share what may be the quote of the review process so far, from TxSTCatman: “I like a ball that has some feel to it. Nothing too hard that reminds me of having dental work under a local, and nothing so soft that I'd rather use it in a cup of hot chocolate” Yup, MGS reviewers have what it takes!!! Several reviewers also mentioned durability is important, valueing a ball that could last a few rounds without unacceptable scarring. Thoughts on the Wilson Staff Brand I'm a marketing geek, so this is where things get interesting. We asked our testers what comes to mind when they think of Wilson Staff: “Tennis! I never thought of Wilson golf balls, other than as bulk discount” “Cheap, for hackers.” “Better than cheap brands. Decent quality for the price” Outdated Wal-Mart quality” “Once a top brand but now obscure” “2nd tier brand” Yikes! Other testers, however, had very different opinions: “Older brand, solid equipment without the glitz and glam of the big OEM's” “A little dated, but certainly on the comeback” "Really like the brand...the golf equipment is on the rebound" “Great history, rebuilding the brand and making great strides in recent years” “Very underrated, high quality” “Underrated, making great clubs and really nice golf balls” “Improving quality in all of their equipment” After this introduction, we'll have the reviewers chime in with their experiences. Please ask any questions of our reviewers that you want. They're ready and eager to share their experiences with you and let you know what they think of the 2015 Wilson Staff ball lineup.
