Nike "juice" ball

15 posts in this topic

Hey all. I was at a discount sports store today and saw a bunch of these Nike Juice Plus 312 balls. They were 9.99/dozen so I picked up a lot. Can anyone tell me about these? Your experiences? I was going to play them in a practice round Friday before a best ball tourney on Sunday. I will also prob give some to my friends/ family for Sunday if the review is favorable. Thanks!

I called and talked to a Nike golf dept employee last week. He said that the Juice is "very similar" to the new Crush ball. I am guessing it is basically the same ball with a new paint job. Geared to lower to mid swing speeds for distance and straight flight. Not sure about feel, (soft/hard). I have tried a few before but never had good success. Don't read too much into that, I'm a 30 handicap and I don't have too much success with any ball. :)

It was the first ball I ever used.

I really dont think they are too bad feel wise. I got loaded up on them last xmas from family and use them here and there.

They are pretty much the same as any other $20/pack ball.

Lots of distance, not a lot of feel or spin. It's a typical $10/dozen golf ball

A received a dozen as a gift one time. I really liked them. I usually play NXT Tour or DT So-lo. I thought that Juice Ball gave me more distance without giving up too much. If I saw them for $10-15 a dozen, I'd pick up another box. I might have to give that Crush ball a try!

I found one and played a couple rounds with it. Definitely longer than any ball I have ever played. Seemed to reduce sidespin also.

They're rocks. If you lose a lot of golf balls they are a good choice, but nothing more.

Iteresting, I'm not saying they are soft but I didn't find them to be Rocks either (put your basic TopFlight comment here) and I generally prefer a softer ball.

I am just coming up on 3 years playing. The 3 wood is the only club from my original configuration (and I just put that back in the bag as I can now finally hit it off the fairway)

Hello, I play to a 13 handicap. I found one of these nike juice- plus balls and played with it for about 15 holes. I was impressed with feel and distance. Drives were 10-15 yards further that my Callaways. Irons felt good but ball hits green and runs. Overall, I liked the ball very much. Just bought a couple of dozen for $25. Cheap enough to not have to bother looking for balls in woods!

Yep not too bad, played them for a long time/ until they stopped selling them around me. I was playing down to a 5 handicap with them no problems.

      Ive recently gone from a belly to a 34" putter. Really liked the the belly putter but struggled with distance control. after practicing with the short putter i seem to have more control. Will be keeping the belly though for when i get a older or the back starts to protest!

      No problem.  I'm not tired of responding to sincere and thoughtful posts, like yours, even if it rehashes stuff from before because OF COURSE it is unrealistic to expect people to read 3000 posts before commenting.  In any case I have that quote in a file and it was simple to post it - much simpler and politer than saying "go find it , it's here."  I DO think that one should maybe at least read a smattering of such a big thread before jumping in,   But I have no patience whatsoever with the "I saw Jack play" and "he was nice at a clinic" type posts or posts by people who try to claim some special credibility because of some entirely personal subjective connection.  But that isn't you. As to the rest, you asked for the exact quote and I gave it to you.  If you want to argue with what he said, that is another matter and does not concern me, since my position is that even if we, arguendo, say that the field strengths did NOT get better, Tiger's career was so much more dominant than Jack's that it doesn't matter.  I don't NEED to make a stronger field argument to make the case that Tiger dominated golf in a way and to an extent that no other golfer has ever dominated golf.  And he did it for 15 years (after an absolutely unprecedented career as an amateur) which, IMO, is long enough that it no longevity argument could overcome the sheer dominance advantage his career embodied.   The fact that all that is true in the face of field strength increasing is just icing on the cake.   
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Excellent. Thank you for re-posting that quote. Sorry to hear you're tired of rehashing. Why not just let the thread die then? Is the expectation that folks will read all 272 pages before making a comment? That strikes me as an unrealistic expectation.. I agree the tour is tougher than it used to be. I consider the differences more incremental than astronomical...not the 'order of magnitude' range that seems to come through in some comments. I think Jack is both being accurate in assessing his perception of a shift in quality, but also exaggerating for effect or experiencing present-day myopia at the very least about the money. $100 in 1962 money would be ~ $800 dollars today. Not exactly what I would call bus fare. The 'paltry' $100,000 had the buying power of about $800,000 in today's dollars, which is ~ 60% of today's average purse and ~ 30% of the Players' purse).. Most Americans would happily take an annual salary like that today. They weren't getting ditch digger wages. The prize money even then definitely attracted keen competitive interest. Clearly purses have also grown more than inflation and even journeyman make more in a year than the top 10 in 1962 (below), but it seems about in line with the growth of the population of golfers in the U.S. itself - about triple since Jack's day, Endorsement money has definitely gotten bigger, as the tour and the golf marketplace have developed and expanded over time.   Rank       Player                  1962 $                   2015 $ 1            Arnold Palmer        $81,448                 $639,223 2            Gene Littler           $66,201                 $519,562 3            Jack Nicklaus         $61,869                 $485,563 4            Billy Casper            $61,842                 $485,351 5            Bob Goalby            $46,241                 $362,910 6            Gary Player            $45,838                 $359,748 7            Doug Sanders        $43,340                 $340,143 8            Dave Ragan          $37,327                 $292,951 9            Bobby Nichols       $34,312                 $269,288 10          Phil Rodgers          $32,182                 $252,572
