Swing speed is a measure of velocity, in miles per hour, of how fast the club head of a golf club is traveling at the point it makes impact with the golf ball. Swing speed can be recorded by a launch monitor or other electronic radar devices.
94 mph or below

Balls designed for higher handicap golfers generally have harder covers that result in lower spin rates with irons and drivers. Balls designed for low handicap golfers tend to offer your more control and spin.
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.
Golfballs.com Expert Description
Need balance in your game? The Wilson Staff Fifty Elite can help. Now constructed with a 22% softer Nano-Tech Core than its previous model, the two-piece Wilson Staff Fifty Elite golf ball achieves ever-increasing distance when used with drivers and long irons, yet does not sacrifice the acclaimed soft feel. Due to carefully designed 302 shallow dimpling on the ball’s exterior, ball flights are higher and straighter than ever.
Once opposite thoughts in ball characteristics are now in perfect harmony with Wilson Staff Fifty Elite: aggressive core yet responsive cover; soft feel yet explosive distance; low driver spin yet high greenside spin; pin-point control yet expansive power, long carry yet quick stopping; and flight stability with shot creativity. Wilson Staff Fifty Elite Orange golf balls are simply the best of both worlds.
- 50 compression rating
- 302 pan-head dimple pattern minimizes drag
- Advanced rubber core chemistry
- Highly engineered Ionomer cover provides powerful acceleration
- Great combination of power, distance and feel

Golfballs.com Staff Review: from Luke
For all those lovers of the discontinued Wilson Smartcore, this is your replacement ball! One of the most popular soft-feel balls we have. At 50 compression this ball is ideal for swing speeds in the mid 90’s and below. This soft ball can be played well by a variety of players and skill sets. This ball is also available in 3 colors, white, orange and yellow.

I never thought it would happen to me. I know it sounds like every Penthouse forum letter written, however, I am talking about playing this golf ball. I am a 9 handicap and play with my friends who are bombers. I'll put a 265-275 yard drive out there and they crap on it everytime, going 300+. A couple of months ago, a buddy told me, "You got to try this ball" and gave me the Wilson Staff 50 to hit. He's always trying to get me to hit his driver or 3wood, or try this tee or that tee. So I did. I never expected it, never thought it would go as far as it did. Unbelievable. That day was a tourney and I won long drive with a 310 bomb. I had never won a long drive competition before. I'm not a golf snob and usually play a mixture of Srixon, Titleist, Taylormade, or Nike balls but this one was outstanding. I suppose it is the compression on the ball that made it explode off my club but whatever it is, i'm hooked. I just ordered 12 dozen personalized for my upcoming retirement party as table favors but I guarantee I won't put all of them out. I recommend this golf ball to anyone who isn't worried about someone seeing him play with a Wilson golf ball instead of a top of the line, $45 a doz ball.

The Wilson staff 50 has given me good overall performance as compared to higher compression balls that require a faster swing speed. A great ball for my abilities.

Found one of these balls on the course one day and hit the heck out of it. My friends and I all like them so I had some personalized with our office logo on it for X-mas. Nice job!

Good price for pretty good golf balls. The Wilson Staff Duo carries farther though.

Frequently asked questions about
Does the "50" elite mean it's a 50 compression ball? If it isn't, what is the compression?

Actually, it is relative compression, as golf balls are no longer wound with rubber we cannot check compression like we used to. It is really just saying it is that it is soft feel !!

I have just started playing the Wilson 50 Elite ball and love it. Now that I have started reading more about it, I heard that Wilson may be discontinuing this ball and replacing it with the Wilson Duo. Say it ain't so!

IT AIN'T SO!
The Duo replaced the D:25 but I certainly don't see them doing away with the 50 Elite. For the money it's a great golf ball.

A few weeks ago I e-mailed W/S customer service. I asked if they were still making the orange 50, and they said 'yes, the website was undergoing some maintenance.' Good thing, this ball is sweet. Great visibility, too.

I like these balls in cold weather as I play all year. When it is thirty five plus degrees they play better than a prov1, as they don't feel like your hitting a rock. But as the weather warms, they still fly far and preform well around the greens, but they tend to get eaten by the grooves on my wedges, as witnessed by the grooves being filled with ball after hitting . Good ball cheap price, would I still buy them ? yes I do Wilson Staff balls can't be beat for the money
