Trajectory is a term used to describe the flight characteristics of a golf shot. It considers the height of the shot as well as it's launch and landing characteristics.
Feel is a term that considers the firmness or compression of the golf ball. Typically the softer the golf ball feels, the lower the compression rating. A general rule of thumb about golf ball compression is that players with a lower swing speed should use a lower compression ball to take advantage of the added spring affect.
9 iron spin is regarding the backward rotation of the golf ball in flight or the measured rate of that rotation. Most golfers think of backspin more in relation to shorter irons and wedges. Backspin is what causes some wedge shots to "back up" on the green, or roll backwards after hitting the green.
The Nike Power Distance Soft is a 2 piece contruction perfect for those players looking for an overall soft feel. Designed for lower swing speeds, the Power Distance Soft has a low-compression core and softened ionomer cover. This will increase your distance as well as give you more feel around the greens.

Nike PD Soft Ball has been helped me lower 4 more handicap! feel good, drive far, easy chipping and putt for my level!
preston (Westminster, CA)
Im a beginner, and after I decided to stop trying to knock the cover off the ball...slow things down and swing easy, this low compression ball really took off for me. It has a nice feel off the tee, as well as around the greens. Comparable to Top Flite XL 7000 Soft.
Both balls feel pretty much the same...play the cheaper one!
