I play these and Wilson staff Duo balls pretty regularly and I honestly can't tell the difference between these and the duos. These are great value balls. Yes, I like ProV1x balls a bit more, but they cost 6X as much. These balls outperform several $3/ball brands I've tried. I like these better than anything Nike or Callaway offers. Given my clubhead speed I'm surprised I'm liking a low compression ball this much, but I guess modern technology means that you don't lose distance like you used to with a low compression ball. I like them because they have very low spin off my driver and long irons, but stop nicely with my short irons and wedges. I like the feel putting as well. Chipping feel is mediocre, and where I most prefer the ProV1x.
These aren't a great ball if you like to work the ball. However, the mid to high handicapper will be fine. You can play a soft fade or soft draw with these easily. You also can't really back these up. They stop decently, but don't back up really ever. I think it's because they land so soft due to the low compression.
They're very durable. I've yet to cut one. They scuff a bit more than the ProV1X, but don't cut as easily.
When I started playing the Duos, I was shocked by how much I liked them. I absolutely can tell zero difference between these and the duos, so I think these are becoming my go to game ball. I've gone through 48 of them so far and like them just as much as the first one I hit.
I give away company-logoed Pro V1s to my clients. ("Brand" is image you know.) But I hit the Wilson Staff Zips -- mostly. I find I can "compress" a Zip very similarly to the Pro V1s. Both balls give me "control" to work the ball R to L. I am 67 years old and have a 9.9 USGA index. (I used to be a 6.2 "back in the day.") I find the Zip shallow dimple pattern produces penetrating carry that provides competitive distance to the Pro V1. I hit it about 250 these days, but the control helps me maintain a 67% FIR -- so I hit about 9-10 of the fairways of the 14 driving holes. Being in the fairway really helps you score. (Ask Phil.)
The softer ball control effect also helps me hit my approach shots with more consistency. I can feel the ball stay on the iron face tat microsecond "longer" that makes all the difference in being able to "work” the ball R to L or H or L.
I find the $5 Pro V1 "drops and stops" (as advertised) better than any ball including the $1 Zip, but the Zip does not roll forward far enough -- maybe another 3 feet or so instead of just 1 foot, but that is insignificant at my level of play. Don't forget that this IS amateur, recreational golf, not the US Open. (Another "Ask Phil.")
Putting a softer ball is really important. I use an Odyssey with a soft insert. This give me -- guess what? - more control on the greens. I must add at this point that the Fatso 5.0 grip has reduced my 3-putts and is the best $25 I have spend on golf equipment since I spend $500 on 1-SW set of PING Eye 2's in 1988. Love those grandfathered box groves.
All in all, FOR THE MONEY Zips are a great deal. DISCLAIMER. I like the $2 each Wilson Staff Duos better (guess what? even more control and closer to a Pro V1) and just Sunday I found a Srixon Q Star SL on #8. After shooting big fat 44 on the front with a Pro V1, I played it on the back and shot 39 that coulda, shoulda been a 37 if the 2 lip outs would have fat lipped the other way.
I think the marketing folks have us pretty well micro-segmented now. You what you are willing to pay for. It's all a matter of knowing your game and then deciding how much you want to spend - $1 (Zip), $2 (Duo), $3 (Many), $4 (Many), or $5 (Pro V1).
Hope this helps you “get your game!”
After reading reviews of these golf balls I decided to give them a try. And they did not disappoint. Very soft feel and good travel. I am not great at spinning balls to stop on the green but I managed to do that on my latest round successfully.
Finally, I scored my first ever eagle playing with these balls (Hah!). Not that the ball was responsible for that little miracle but, you never know... :)
Seriously, for the price and the performance I am thoroughly pleased and will be buying more in the future.
The USGA has determined that a ball can deflect from round no more then 2/10ths of one inch when struck by a consistent speed driver, that speed being standard to the USGA. Then they divide that 2/10ths of an inch into 200, so the deflection is measured by high speed camera in the thousandths of an inch, and they get a 0 to 200 scale.
To make it interesting, they reversed the numbers so, if it deflects the whole 2/10ths of an inch, the rating is zero, for zero compression which is actually full compression. If it does not deflect at all, the rating is 200. Just for the record, there are no 200 rated balls on the market. That would be a rock.
So when Wilson Staff says this is a zero compression ball, that only means it deflects a total 2/10ths of one inch when hit by the driver speed as dictated by the USGA.
What does that mean for the average player? Larger rebound, and a little more distance on slower swing speeds. It also should stick better when it first strikes the ground on a long iron into a green.
This is a win-win ball for amateurs, and the price is just outstanding to boot. I use them, and I like them.
