Wilson Zip Golf Ball Review

By Clint Hale


Wilson Staff's Zip golf ball features a multi-layer, zero-compression core. Wilson Staff says the Zip's power comes from a mantle layer made of DuPont HPF polymer, while the soft ionomer cover results in solid touch and optimal spin. The balls also feature a flat-bottomed, shallow dimple setting that claims to allow for a better, more stable ball flight. The Wilson Staff Zip golf balls are sold by the dozen, retailing for around $20-$25. 


The Zip's zero-compression core and shallow dimple setting is ideal for adding distance and spin, while feel is optimized by these as well. The shallow dimples also come in handy on the greens, as they allow for better spin. The balls are also quite affordable.



The balls do tend to scuff a bit quicker and easier than other golf balls. This limits the Zip's durability and longevity. This isn't of great importance to sporadic golfers, but it could cause a problem for those that hit the links quite often.


Bottom Line

Wilson Staff's Zip golf balls are a solid (though not spectacular) addition to most golf bags. They are ideal for mid-high handicappers looking to add a little distance and spin to their game.
