Who should buy the ASICS Gel Course Duo BOA

The attributes of the Gel Course Duo BOA work well for the following golfers:

  • Existing ASICS fans who want to try out a reputable brand on the greens
  • Golfers who want to experience the convenience of a BOA lacing dial
  • Those needing extra grip on steep courses

Comfort level similar to that of a running shoe

Plenty of commenters compare the comfort level of the ASICS Gel Course Duo BOA to Asics' running shoes.

The Gel Course DUO BOA uses a combination of two cushioning systems. First is the brand's signature FlyteFoam, which is 55% lighter than industry standards. It is known not only for its durability but its shock-absorbing properties as well. Second is the rearfoot GEL cushioning which boasts of impact absorption, thereby allowing smoother foot transitions.

The ASICS Gel Course Duo BOA offers maximum traction

Like soccer shoes, the bottom of these is treated with Firm Ground (FG) outsole, bringing maximum traction and stability designed for greens. The seven spikes are also positioned on areas where it is needed, making each swing stable. 

A high number of testers say that they did not experience any traction issues, even with morning dew.

BOA dial is an efficient lacing system

The BOA dial is a stand out feature among many owners because it is so easy to use.

Unlike traditional lace-ups, it gives fast and precise micro-adjustments by merely turning the dial. 

The Gel Course Duo BOA is great for the wet season

The waterproof upper is quite useful on the course, as mentioned by a small number of reviewers. 

However, due to its impermeable property, this cleat can be a little bit thick for the warm season.
