Pros: Distance, Apporace shots and Look
Cons: Price, short game feel.
I recently tested the Volvik White Color S3 golf ball. Overall I think this is a great ball. I would definitely consider this ball for everyday play.
This ball looks great to me. It is probably my favorite “white” ball as far as how it looks. It has a pearl like finish that to me is really cool looking and stands out nicely on the course. I think it stands out nicely of you are looking for you ball in longer grass. Also this ball seems to be extremely durable.
I thought this ball was just fine off the driver. It feels great, it sounds great and the distance is comparable to my every day ball for distance and trajectory. Maybe even a bit longer. Overall it performed great for me off the driver. I even played it in some windy conditions and felt it did not have many troubles with the wind.
I like the way that this ball feels off the irons. It feels explosive and seems to hold greens just fine for me. It maybe just feels a slight amount harder on wedge shots and some irons shots. I think this ball really does shine on irons shots though and is up there with any tour ball I have tried.
This is the one thing that could possibly keep this ball out of my bag. It is a bit hard or “clicky” sounding around the greens. I am used to a softer version high end ball and really like that soft feel around the greens. If you are used to a slightly harder feeling ball like a ProV1x I think you would really like how this feels on greenside shots.
This is a really nice ball overall. I would have no troubles putting this ball in the bag. I love the look of this ball and the way it performs. I only wish it were a little bit softer feeling around the greens. The price is also maybe a bit high in relation to the popularity of these balls.
