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. But conversely, if you have a very fast (pro type) swing speed, the ball will fly a little less than the balls pros prefer. What's also great about this ball is that it's cheap, roughly $1/ball. So if you aren't very good and lose a lot of balls in a round, it hurts less financially when you lose one. Plus the ball is available in orange, my preferred ball color. Orange balls are much easier to see in the sky on an overcast day than a white ball. And since very few people play orange balls, you are less likely to confuse your ball on the ground with someone else's ball.

This ball should really be rated a full 5 stars by everyone who chooses to play it. If you are a near-pro golfer, you already know that you want a ball with less compression and more spin, to match your fast swing speed and ability to "work" (deliberately curve) the ball. But if you are anything less than a great golfer, buy this ball. Most of the negative customer reviews here are ridiculous. Check out the current one star reviews. One says the balls feel like rocks, another says they feel like marshmallows - obviously these are in between those two extremes. Then some say that the wrong product was sent or they got the wrong color from their seller. That is not a review of THIS product, and is no reason for one star. And there are some 3 star ratings that claim the ball "wears out" after a full round (18 holes) or two. Look, if you can play an entire round without losing a ball, retire that ball. Considering the costs of playing golf, why be cheap and play a $1 ball for more than one round? Serious tennis players do not keep playing the same balls match after match, and there's no reason anyone should play a $1 golf ball for more than one round. Frankly I'd love to finish a round with the same ball from the first tee, something I've never done.

These Wilson Staff 50 Elite's may be the best ball for the money I have ever played. 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 company's cannot do full color on color balls). Comet Realty's light green really pop's off the orange balls!

Excellent ball; Yellow ball has dramatic price increase from $11 and change to over $17. White currently is in the $12 range.

01/30/17 - Good grief! - get’em while you can - Yellow balls back down to $12.99

I'm a scratch golfer and play with top balls from Nike, Srixon and Titleist. I found one of these balls and played it for a few holes and man I couldn't be more impressed. I ordered a couple dozen and I enjoy the fact I can get them in orange for playing in the late fall with all the leaves. If highly recommend these to anyone.

I have been using the 50 Elite balls since shortly after they came after playing the Callaway Supersoft balls for a bit. I liked the Supersoft's a lot but I got a slightly better feel from these. I usually use the yellow but in the fall they were hard to spot on my local courses so I tried the orange and they just pop. Not a single lost ball yet. Great balls at a phenomenal price.

Pros: Low compression, feels soft for touch around & on the greens, durable cover, purchased for less than a dollar per ball.
Cons: Lacks distance for amateurs, colors (yellow & orange) aren't bright enough for high vis.
Overall for the price, a good value. Better to lose these balls on the course than Pro V's!

Just played with my first sleeve today. Definitely added 10 yards to my drives and 2nd shot. I have a low swing speed (~80 mph) and hit a good drive ~200 yards with my driver. I was hitting my driver 210, and hitting my 3 wood close to 200, which I normally hit ~185. Shots into the green I had to start clubbing down a club, I overshot a bunch of greens today until I starting clubbing down (meaning now I'm hitting 7 iron the same distance I use to hit my 6 iron).

Also off the tee it seems like its more foregiving, my normal draw/hook really softened up into a nice baby draw.

I was playing Titleist velocity, which is another good ball, and longer for slow swing speeds than a lot of other balls, but this is the longest ball I've every played.

Lots of distance with these low compression balls. Averaged 15 yards more first time using them.

This is a great ball. My wife is a 9 handicap and like it a lot. The orange color is really easy to see and to find in the rough, especially in winter conditions.

These are great golf balls for the recreational golfer. Nice soft feel. Carry the same distance as any other golf ball I have played and they will spin around the greens. I'll keep buying them as long as they keep making them.
