Pros: Long, Durable, Short Game Spin

Cons: Feel is lacking

I received a few dozen of these to try and I am trying to get a feel for them. First off, this ball is long off the tee, just as long as a Pro V1X and more durable. Off the irons, I just didn't feel like I was compressing the ball enough to get a real feel for it. I swing the driver at 105 mph and off the irons it was hard to get that feedback that I normally get. The ball flight was fine and I have made some great shots that held the green. I had no issues with the short game and really liked the spin and control. Off the putter the 20XI X is firm but fair, but again little to no feel. Judging distance was not an issue. I just know that I would get more out of this ball with a swing speed of 110 or higher.

Description:

The new Nike 20XI ball features a combination of proprietary technology never before seen in the golf industry, and is the result of four years of collaborative research and development between Nike Golf’s golf ball engineers and a team of material and science experts at DuPont. The game-changing technology replaces conventional rubber cores with a radical new resin material. Resin is a highly neutralized polymer that’s faster and lighter material engineered to produce longer distance and more controlled shots. Faster Ball Speed Equals More Distance · Advancement in proprietary resin core chemistry delivers faster ball speed. · Internal tests with Nike Golf tour athletes have shown an average of 2-3 mph increase in ball speed. · Every 1 mph increase equates to 2-3 yards carry distance. Highest Levels of MOI Provides Longer, Straighter Ball Flight · Lighter core and heavier outer layers result in perimeter weighting. · High MOI assists in reducing driver spin and maintains spin beyond apex to maintain carry and control. · After apex, the higher MOI assists in maintaining spin an average of 100-200 RPM. · 20XI has the highest levels of MOI in a golf ball to date. Steeper Spin Slope Equals More Distance Off the Tee; More Control Around the Green · Less spin off the driver, more off the wedge. · Overall design and MOI assist in reducing driver spin at impact on average of 100 – 200 RPM over prior Nike ball technology. · Softer cover materials allow for greater short iron spin and control. The Nike 20XI franchise will launch two versions of the ball, the 20XI-X (tour-level distance) and 20XI-S (tour-level spin). While both balls deliver on faster speed, higher MOI and steeper spin slope, the 20XI-X is optimized to reduce excess driver spin to maximize distance.
