What we say...

2013 Balls Test

JR: Felt and sounded hard but spun well out of bunkers. Decent distance.

JT: Would run forever on poorly-struck chips.

KA: Performed very well in the long game testing.

Dunlop have an impressive tradition in balls, producing their first in 1909. The iconic “65” appeared in the 1930s, and lots of us will remember the DDH from the 1980s onwards.

“Over the last 20 years the brand has produced mainly distance/value balls, but this strategy has changed over the last couple of years as we have looked to develop higher specification, more technical product not just within the ball category but also on golf hardware,” says John Foster, Head of Dunlop Golf. “The DP1 is testament to this; its three-piece construction and soft urethane cover give the ultimate mix of distance, feel and control.

"The ball uses a 324 seamless dimple pattern which reduces air resistance from the tee for more distance. This is combined with a large, solid core which gives a high velocity on all shots and a soft, thin ionomer middle layer to give control and reduce driver spin from the tee. A super soft, highly-durable urethane cover gives great feel and spin control.”

Ideal for competent golfers looking for a moderate flight, rather than an overly-penetrative one or a towering trajectory – and those looking for three-piece performance for less than £20.

    Used once so far and very happy with ball for the price. Got on sale for £12 as new dp1 v3 are out so I thought I would try them. For price they well worth it. Usually play ad333 srixon balls and I got much more control from the dunlop dp1 so don't let the name put you off. Give them a try. May even grab one more pack while on sale so I've got more for future. I'm not brilliant so don't wanna spend loads only to lose them and be annoyed. So suit me just fine.
