Played the new Professional in matte yellow for about 9 holes. Was not a bad ball but didn't feel like it was outstanding in any area either. Felt great off the irons, but maybe softer than I like off the Driver and putter. Green were super hard and not holding much but these seems to do ok with a wedge from a tight lie.
Visibility was good, but not eye popping like the Superbold, at least not in yellow. Might pick up a sleeve in Orange to try that but overall it's not what I was hoping for so far.
so matte cover is not urethane.?
Tried white yesterday. It does not have same stickiness that duo u does. And it flies ok. Does feel actually harder for me. Not an upgrade at all considering Duo U still costs about $13/dozen on Ebay.
Gonna try orange today but I suspect it will be another volvik like ball.
Finished my round today and went into the pro shop afterwards to browse. I was looking to see if they had the TP5 Pix ball - just wanted to see what it looked like. Anyway, the shop asked if I'd played the Wilson Professional yet and I said I wasn't aware of it. They tossed me one so I'll give it a shot tomorrow.
I actually liked matte colored version of this ball than white. get some birdies!
I played the white yesterday, 62* overcast on a semi-soft track. The ball performed well and consistent, if not spectacular. Someone else compared it to the Chrome Soft and I agree. Compression felt comparable to the chrome Soft, QStar Tour and Bridgestone BXS. Trajectory seemed slightly flatter than both. It puts well with consistent “click” and feel. The cover held up well and I couldn’t see much marking after the round. I like it enough to give it another try. At this point I think the QST is a better value and a close second for my game to the BXS.
For comparison sake, for the past 4 years I gamed the B330RX/BRX.
