I currently play the Pro-V1 and I like everything but the price. Then again, I haven't tried some of the newer balls on the market so maybe there is something out there better for me.

I was reading about the Bridgestone B330 RX and B 330S as well as the Pro-V1X. What is important to me is distance and feel around the greens. Here are my stats:

Driver
Launch: 11 - 12*
Ball Speed: 146mph
Club Speed: 100-102
Distance: Usually, 250-280 yds
Handicap: 9
Occasional golfer - a few times a month.

Any suggestions?

 

 

If you are hitting it solid, you should be getting near 275 max. 148 mph ball speed, 14 degrees of launch with 2500 rpm will get you 275. You might tweak an extra 5 yards if you catch one with a higher swing speed. You might want to work on contact if you are getting a 30 yard variance in your distance. 

 

As for a golf ball, for feel you want a Urethane cover. It just beats out all other cover types. So you are looking at a 30+ dollar per dozen. Once you get that high, all golf balls really flight the same. Most modern golf balls are designed to have low spin for drivers, high spin for wedges. So most golf balls are comparable off the driver 

 

I recommend the Chrome Hex, its a very solid golf ball. The premium nike golf balls are a good one as well. If you can find them LPD Blacks by Taylormade. They should be on sale. They are like 3-4 years old, but for the price today you can't beat them. I think I saw them for like 20-25 dollars a dozen. They were originally priced at 35-40 dollars.

They were top of the line when this thread was made though. And I can attest that they are pretty decent, though not as long as current tour balls for me. Right now Nike 20XIX are about 23$/dozen so I just bought 4 dozen. But I'm over 100mph by a decent bit. Bridgestone E5s are the best I've found that aren't tour balls or surlyn.

My guess is since the OP hasn't posted for almost a year, he found the right ball.
