Best ball for 77-81 mph swing

35 posts in this topic

Tested my swing speed at golf galaxy yesterday and came up with 80-81mph with driver and 77-78 with irons.

Golf Digest did a ball test and they were really impressed with the Noodle Easy Distance for swing speeds under 85mph. I have yet to try this ball. Are there any other balls out there that would be good for me to try ?

Currently using TF Gamer V2's and Srixon AD333's. Also have some Bridgestone e5's in the bag.

if you can set aside a little pride, you can also go for women's balls. I've ofte heard that for people who slower swing speed, you can benefit from using a women's ball.

Something very low compression.

Not necessarily these . . . but low.

Wilson Staff has a soft compression ball..I think its called Fifty Elite. I have also heard the Bridgestone Treosoft is fairly decent

FYI, I can get it up to 85-90mph but everything goes haywire, lol
also I play with very flexy graphite shafts so swinging hard just makes it worse for me.

I played with an elder guy once, who actually recommended ladies balls. He was using Taylor Mades ladies that day.
I could care less what i hit. I just want the performance.

You might want to have someone check your club shaft(s) as well to make sure it is right for you swing speed.

A friend told me the Precept Laddie was originally a "Precept Lady" but so many senior men played it they changed the name?

Try the Noodle+ Easy Distance. They are the best $15 dollar ball on the market, BY FAR. And they were just introduced this season so no one really knows about them.

They are well worth it. My Pro's dad who has been a PGA professional for almost 60 years started using them after hitting a few of mine.

They cannot be beat for the price....

For $15 a dozen what do you have to lose?

If you get 77 mph with a 5 iron.you should get much more than 81mph with a driver. Are yous sure the readings were accurate?

Volvik Crystals are nice low compressiom b alls.The Precept MC Lady is good,too. It was this ball that started the low compression ball phase. Men discovered them and were buying them like crazy,but of c ourse,some were too proud,that's when they came out with low compression men's balls. The Wilson 50 is just trhat 50 comp.

My swing speed is 81 with the six iron and mid to high 90s with the Driver. I think the driver number for you is off. I use the Titleist NXT Tour and really like it.

TopFlite D2-Strait, Feel, or Distance. At $1/ball you could probably try them all out.

If you are looking for a tour style soft ball, the Bridgestone 330RX. If you want a cheaper one just about any 2 layer ball will work, but try the Top Flite Gamer. THE ONLY bad thing I have heard about it is poor durability, but at your swing speed you won't be shredding many covers.

I don't swing much faster then you and I love the Nike Karma (old version).
It is by far the softest feeling ball I have ever hit.
Haven't hit the new version but the old ones are dirt cheap.

      It matters. Please read the last paragraph of my original post (the one that explains why I'm tracking a bogus HI). I'm using an online Handicap tracker. My HI is not legitimate on a couple levels. I don't belong to a club and I play the vast majority of my rounds by myself. That's why I don't show a HI in my profile. It's only important that I play by the rules because I want an honest assessment of my progress. I may never play in a tournament, but if I do, I'd like to be bit more familiar with how these things are done. Just because I suck at golf doesn't mean I can try to learn the rules.
    • Hitting behind the ball and making deep divots...
      I took a look at your my swing thread - looks like you've gotten some good advice there and made some solid improvements.  FWIW - I posted this thread here called "What is the Secret of the Golf Swing" . .and I said that, for me, it was realizing how not to aim at the ball.  This "realization" helped me fix a lot of the things I see in your swing.  I'd been told lots and lots of times - don't hit at the ball, swing through to the target . but it didn't make sense to me . .until one day it suddenly did.  Anyway - while I suffered from this misconception - I had a variety of bad shots.  On my good days I could hit it pretty good.  On my bad days anything could happen . .I could slice it, hit it fat, pull hook it, top it, skull it, etc.  Anyway - it's not as easy as just "don't hit at the ball" . .or, as I think of it.  .don't aim "the energy of your swing at the back of the ball".   Speaking just for myself, it took a lot of practice and lessons to get to where I could "suddenly have this realization".  But . .in the meantime - you are hitting it fat (or whatever) because you're making a lot of corrections for some fundamentals that are off.  And, for sure, fatigue would have a lot to do with it.  The more fatigued you are, the less likely you'll be to make this corrections successfully .  If you get lessons or sign up for evolvr or just keep posting in the myswing thread - you can get the (slow) way forward - it's by focusing on one thing and then the next and then the next and yada yada.  I couldn't say what your "next thing" to work on is, though.     
    • "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge May 2016
      Practicing different speeds of backswing almost making a drill of it.  Super slow checking positions, then slow, then kind of slow and swing  . I think I had one day of my reply to topic not posting bc sometimes my phone is crappy but was able to do the next morning and had two entries that day.  Its up to the powers that be if I completed the challenge.

      Better video. Full swing.

      I wouldn't trust a FOX poll more than i would trust an NBC poll.  Most polls have the undecided vote easily in the high teens to over 20%, http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/of-course-trump-can-win/ Here are the questions FOX'd asked. Not really exactly the title they showed in that article. Also, they asked the people, "If you don't know: Well, which way do you lean?". That is a crap question to just to tighten up the uncertainty. That way they can just clump them all under Trump or Hillary when they might actually be truly undecided.  This poll is skewed towards the two minority parties anyways. Here is the national party affiliation, http://www.gallup.com/poll/15370/party-affiliation.aspx The nation is 25% Republican, 44% Independent, and 31% Democrat. The people who answered the poll identified as 40% democrat (+9%), 41% Republican (+17%), 16% Independent ( -28%). No wonder Hillary and Trump got in the mid 40's, that is who they asked the questions from.
