Making a golf ball is like baking a cake: Not only do you need the proper ingredients, but you need the proper amount. For golf balls, that means getting the elements for the core and cover down pat. For Wilson’s Duo Soft+, the difference-maker is the use of zinc pentachlorothiophenol. Using it for the core formula nullifies the co-crosslink- ing agent that can make the core firmer, which robs the ball of distance. Using it, in effect, amplifies the power of a play- er’s swing, leading to ball-speed gains of up to two miles per hour for a player swinging at 90 miles per hour with a driver. The cover is firmer, but the ball remains one of the softest in the category with a 35 compression, providing a cushy feel.
