What we say...
YOU NEED TO KNOW:
With a 40 compression Wilson says the DX3 is the world's softest multi-layer ball. A new inner core generates lower-spinning drives for extra distance, while a softer surlyn cover increases spin on approaches. A new, shallower dimple design promotes higher trajectories and longer carry distances.
It wasn't that long ago golf ball compression was a simple choice between 90 and 100, and back then the 40 compression Wilson would have been laughed at. Our test pro really enjoyed hitting the DX3, though like the low compression Callaway he gave up 3-4mph of ball speed with a driver, thanks to overpowering the structure of the ball. That certainly doesn't mean it's a bad choice, and at slower speed with irons the Wilson was within three yards of our pro's longest and it span really nicely with a wedge.
Just like picking a driver or set of irons, our data shows that golf balls need careful selection, too. A brilliant low compression option for golfers who demand soft feel, even if you own a set of harder cast steel irons and wedges. The Wilson is very well suited to average driver swing speeds.
