W/S Duo and other softies?

For the last few years, a group of players at our golf course have been playing persimmons, blades, balatas to get away from the tournament grind and to just try to have fun when we are all burnt out from competition (club pros, college players, mini-tour chasers, state amateurs, all that jazz.) But, much to our surprise, a few of us don't really want to play anything else but the classic equipment nowadays, and of course the hardest thing to come by are balatas.... so while we aren't playing our select stash of almost round rarities, we've been playing mostly Wilson Staff Duo Soft golf balls. But what recommendations do you all have for comparable balls, as far as compression, softness, durability all that stuff, that we've been pretty happy to find in the Duo Soft?



Are there options in the Vice line that compare? Just want some input, Thanks!

    Vice Pro Soft and Maxfli Ufli Soft would provide a similar feel with slightly better performance around the greens.

    I moved from the Duo series to the Trusoft DT series, which Titleist promptly discontinued. There's not a whole lot between the two series for me, but I'd put the Trusoft right between the Duo and Duo Spin in a comparison of the three.

    Titleist has not discontinued the DT Trusoft series as far as I know.

    Very cool. Excited to try something new. Thanks for the input.



    *added bonus, came across three tour balatas in playable condition while cleaning out the range dispenser. The golf gods giveth.
