Equipment news: Wilson Staff FG Tour BallFebruary, 2014 Equipment
This new premium ball is described by Wilson Staff as the softest urethane ball on the market.
5 Wilson Staff has launched the next line of its premium FG Tour ball range in the form of a new 4-piece model.
The new ball follows on from the low-compression 2-piece (Dx2 Soft) and 3-piece (Dx3 Soft) golf balls.
The four layer model is aimed at low-handicap golfers who demand a softer-feeling, Tour-quality ball.
A soft, rubber-rich core provides added feel and low driver spin, while an inner mantle promotes spin performance and an outer mantle maximum distance.
The fourth layer, a cast urethane cover, generates Tour-level spin and control around the greens.
“The new FG Tour model completes the perfect line-up of two, three and four-piece balls from Wilson Staff, the brand that continues to lead the way in low compression golf ball technology,” said Frank Simonutti, Wilson Golf’s manager of golf ball R&D.
“Extensive research conducted by our R&D team proves that more and more serious golfers want to play with a softer Tour-feel ball like the new FG Tour.”
The FG Tour ball also introduces a new 318 dimple pattern that delivers greater distance and a more stable, penetrating flight trajectory in the toughest of wind conditions.
The Wilson Staff FG Tour ball was released in February with an RRP of £34.99.
