Wilson Triad is the brand’s most technologically advanced golf ball with the three-piece urethane pattern designed to help you go past 80.
Wilson’s has set a bold goal for its new Triad golf ball: to become the benchmark model for club golfers striving to get past 80.
No, it’s not a magic ball and it doesn’t come with a remote…but it was designed to achieve the three key objectives required in one round to break the magic number: hit three extra fairways, find five more greens, and hit three more putts.
FULL REVIEW: In-Depth Wilson Triad Review
It’s hard to believe that such a ball could be developed, but that’s because golf balls are usually sold on the pretense that they are faster, longer, softer or softer.
The innovative Triad uses Wilson’s proprietary T3 technology, which has been engineered to deliver total performance from tee to green. The construction produces a high MOI that reduces driver spin off the tee, while increasing swing speed for a long, stable ball flight meant to find the fairways more often.
Moment of Inertia is something we hear a lot about when it comes to clubs, but is rarely mentioned when it comes to golf balls. To achieve a higher MOI, Wilson engineers shifted the weight of the core (the heaviest part of the ball) to the outside of the ball. Weight shifting has also achieved perfect balance in the triad, resulting in straighter shots to the green and straighter putts.

“The results we’ve seen in our product testing have been incredible, with ‘best in class’ results for speed and distance off the tee and scoring and spin rates with the irons when measured against the performance of eight competitive golf balls currently on the market,” said Frank Simonutti, Global Director of Golf Ball Innovation, Wilson Golf. Today’s golfer.
The 85-compression Triad also features the thinnest cast urethane cover Wilson has ever made. Designed to provide high friction and create more grip between the ball and the clubface on short shots, club golfers should find they get more spin and more feel with mid to low irons, their allowing you to attack more pins.
The way the Triad has been constructed ensures uniform density across all three layers – rubber core, thermoplastic layer and urethane coating – and eliminates any manufacturing inconsistencies inside the ball to ensure perfect balance and roll. pure on the greens.
“We are very pleased to introduce this innovative golf ball to a growing community of competitive players looking to take their game to the next level,” said Tim Clarke, General Manager of Wilson Golf.

“The competitive golfer striving for the 80s is what Wilson Labs had in mind when designing Triad’s T3 technology, enabling pinpoint accuracy from anywhere on the course.”
The Triad sits between Wilson’s four-piece Staff Model ball, aimed at tour players and one-figure golfers, and the two-piece Duo Soft+ ball, a ball that targets club golfers looking for super feel. smooth with excellent distance and straight flight.
There’s also a Triad R – a raw, unpainted version of the ball. Wilson revealed raw golf balls with the Staff Model R in 2020 after finding that the traditional three coats of paint can be applied inconsistently and pool, covering 30% of a dimple’s depth and harming the aerodynamic performance of the ball.
Wilson says that means the most consistent and accurate ball won’t be painted. Be warned that it discolors slightly during gameplay, but this does not affect performance.
Triad and Triad R go on sale February 15 for £39 per dozen.
