Tech Talk: Wilson increased the amount of pure rubber in the large core to boost velocity and lower the compression (to 37, making it the lowest-compression ball on the market, according to the company). The goal is to reduce driver spin and enhance feel and spin around the green. A seamless cover with a 302-dimple pattern is designed to improve lift.

Verdict: The Duo is a fresh development for average golfers that deserves some attention for its soft feel through the bag--and for protecting your wallet.
