New mid tier ball recommendation

10 posts in this topic

Hi All,

In the past I had played with the Bridgestone E6 and the Srixon Q Star, due to the greenside performance I have been playing the Prov1x and the Penta TP5.

I found my short game much improved, the issue I have is that my swing has gone slightly off especially off the driver, I find particularly with the Prov1x it really makes my slice and off centre hits really offline, the Penta is not as bad, but obviously at the cost of these balls and the amount I have lost its becoming a bit expensive.

I am looking for a mid tier ball that performs a bit better than the E6 and Q star around the greens, but will also help me to straighten out of the tee.

Any recommendations?

Thanks all


Clarky

It's about finding what works for you, for me I play the DT Solo.  It's very responsive in my short game, has good distance that is predictable and has consistent ball flight.  I realize this is a two piece ball that may not do everything as well as a tour ball but for my game, it's the one.  Have a blessed day.

I tried the Titleist DT Solo was not a fan.

I might try the Callaway Hex Chrome, which seems to get good reviews, may also try the TM Rocketballz or potentially Nike's new One RZN 3 piece ball when it comes out.  Or the Nike PD soft, much cheaper and the way im losing balls at the moment could be a good idea.

I still have a heap of Penta TP5 to use, the Prov1x I gave to a friend of mine, I was really losing these particularly off the tee, where the Penta seems to have a better flight and not as erratic off the tee for me.

I haven't found anything better than the Top-Flite Gamer v2.  And I just picked up 2 3-dozen packs for $30 each.  Great ball at an insane price.

Maybe the Bridgestone B330-RX or RXS?  Probably the RX because you want to stay straighter off the tee.  They both have urethane covers by the way.

The Callaway Hex Chrome has the same cover as the Hex Black Tour, so you will get similar green side spin. It isn't quite as low spinning off of the driver than the Hex Black Tour though.
