Great value and great ball (for most people) at any price,
This review is from: Wilson Staff Fifty Elite Golf Balls, Pack of 12 (Sports)The Wilson Staff 50 Elite does what any non-great golfer wants it to do: it flies far if you don't have a super-fast swing speed, and it has low spin which tends to make it go straight. It also has a softer than average feel, and it's great for chipping and putting. For any amateur golfer who is anywhere from slightly above average to horrible, look no further than this ball. I would honestly prefer to play this ball than any other ball at any price, including the vaunted Titleist ProV1 (which is 4x the price of these).
How it works is that if you have an average to low swing speed, due to the compression this ball will fly farther than most.

I spend 24 years in the sport's industry, the last 10 as the golf buyer for Copeland's Sports so needless to say, I've tried a lot of golf balls! I'm a fair golfer--a perpetual 19 handicap--but have always been a golf ball snob. Back in the day, I was fortunate enough to be a "tester" for many brands.
The secret seems to be the super soft Ionomer cover combined with a low compression core that lets a slower swing speed really make the ball fly. Usually 2 piece balls are supper hard, and real "clicky" off the putter. These balls putt like a ball that costs as much per ball as you would pay for a sleeve of these! Their feel around the green is great as well.
For the money these are the best I've ever used. Plus they come in 3 colors!
And p.s. if you play a lot of golf, and own your company, Wilson can logo these with full color logos (some... Read more
