I was looking for a ball softer than the Chrome Soft (the 2017 model is a bit firmer and I liked the 2016 feel better) but had decent spin and was told about the new Duo U. I have never played a Wilson product of any kind. Tried it for the first time yesterday. I have to say that my first impression is very positive. It is definitely soft!!! I played it on a course I have never played before so I can't speak to comparisons yet. I will be taking it on my home course later in the week. Off the driver it does not seem to go as far as the CS or the Supersoft(I have been messing with the SS a bit and loved the distance but did not like the lack of green side spin). That was based solely on comparison to my partners drives as I typically can outdrive him by 10-20 yards but he got me on a few holes when I felt like I hit it solid. He is also playing a new ball (TP5X) and says he is hitting it longer so I may be hitting the Duo U just as long as the CS or SS. Once I get on my home course I'll know. As far as irons the distance was pretty much spot on to the SS but the ball checked up nicely as I would expect a urethane ball to where the SS would roll out. Touch shots of 50-80 yards seemed to fly a bit further. Putting felt very similar to the CS which is very nice. As I said my first impression is pretty positive. If your looking for a very soft ball with decent spin this may be one to look at. I'll update my thoughts after I play a few more home course rounds.
