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
Shown in miles per hour
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.

User Ratings & Reviews
Have used this GB for my last 6 rounds and have consistently added 15-20 yards to my driver and irons. I really like the feel and sound off the T. When I continue to use this ball I know I can cut strokes off the HC. Good job WS.

I was always under the impression that the more expensive the ball, the more layers and higher the price, the better. I was wrong. As I am over 50 and my swing speed has decreased I need a softer more compressable ball to achieve more distance. I tried the Wilson 50 Elite and I could see and feel the distance improvement with the first swing. 2 weeks ago I hit this ball 321 yards on a par 5 tee shot. I havent hit a ball that long in over 5 years. This ball is simply amazing and since it is less than half the price of a Pro V1 which I shouldnt have been playing in the first place, it is a bargain. My bag is now full of Wilson Elite's, and when I find a Titleist or Callaway, I just give it to my friends. This is my go to ball now!

I just played my first round. I thought the feel around the greens were comparable to the 330x Bridgestone that coat 45 dollars. I am sold. They feel with the putter will take some practice cause of the soft feel. I loved them and will always have them in my bag.

I have been playing this ball since they came out. I am a 10 handicap and was playing pro v but won a couple of these boxes and played them. I was surprised at the soft feel and the durability.
I hit hard and long getting 300+ yards on my drives and I find it forgiving. In the irons, i can put the right amount of spin on the ball to make it do what I want. You cant make it spin as much as a pro v but I would trade that for the forgiveness and durability that the 50 provides.
These balls have a great price and you can pickup nearly 4 dozen for the price of 1 box of pro v. I can afford either, but I stock my bag with 50's.

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
