Wilson Staff Zip Golf Ball
From Golf Magazine (Buyer's Guide, May 2009)
Construction: 3-piece, Ionomer cover
It's for: Better players who play by feel
The "zero compression" core aids feel and leads to lowspinning shots with the big clubs. This spin reduction should improve accuracy and overall distance. A soft polymer mantle layer generates higher ball velocity than a standard Surlyn mantle, for added distance. The soft cover creates spin on scoring shots. Large, shallow "pan head" dimples increase lift and decrease drag for higher flight.
Parting shot: The new hexahedral dimple pattern provides more surface coverage for improved in-flight consistency.
