Titleist DT solo VS Titleist NXT Tour

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi to all,

Currently i play the DT solo, i like the way it flies, it has a good feel off the clubhead (better than some premium balls), and it lasts a lot.
The only thing i miss is a bit more 'drop and stop', but of course you can´t get everything with such an affordable ball.

I was thinking about another ball, first it was the Callaway Tour ix, but i heard some comments about the "click" sound off the clubhead, like if you were hitting a power distance ball. Never saw it on this ball, but i could tell it on the HX Tour.

Now i was thinking about the NXT Tour, many good things have been told about this ball, the only thing that concerns me is scuffs. It seems this ball may scuff very easily.

I am looking for a ball with good feel, distance and good around greens, without having to go to Pro V1. And it must last 18 holes.

Do you think the NXT Tour could fulfill my needs? Should i continue with the solo one?

Thanks a lot

Will definitely hold up fine for 18 holes. Pretty durable ball and not bad performance wise

If you like the DT So Lo, why dont you give the DT Carry or DT Roll a shot. The NXTs are nice, but they are a little pricey and IMO they dont spin much more than a distance ball to be worth spending the extra $$$.

Well, ít seems to me that a real upgrade would be the nxt more than either the roll or carry.
The idea is getting the balls used, but in mint condition (although shipping charge to spain willy be high).

i agree the nxt's scuff really easily... but they arent a bad ball...
if you want the durability of the so lo... you can try either the roll or the carry... i couldnt tell much difference when i tested those 2 balls out...
i actually liked playing the so lo

I used to play the SoLo as well, but it seems like they stopped making it. I just don't care for the Roll or the Carry as much.

The Srixon AD333 is worth a look. I think it is very comparable to the SoLo and it's an affordable ball, too.

I compared the AD333 to the ProV1 this summer during scrambles and they were very comparable in length.

The Srixon is softer, but the ProV1 has more green side spin.

I agree, the SoLo and AD333 feel pretty similar to me. I've played the Srixon SoftFeel and it may give more greenside spin as well.

If you're going for value....Try the Wilson 50-50 or the Top Flite D2's

Those are comparable in price and still provide length & as much stop 7 drop as the SoLo's...........The NXT's are hard and more expensive.

Hi, you could also try one of the srixons, say the soft feel or better still the trispeed if you can get it at a favourable price.

the nxt tour will most likely last 18 holes unless you have a full wedge shot on almost each hole. i hit a few half swings a few minutes ago with a pro v1x using my new vokeys and the ball is already scuffed. i would not expect the same thing from the nxt so i think it fits what you're looking for. the only reason i switche to the pro v1x was a big more distance and more spin around the greens.

Re: Titleist DT solo VS Titleist NXT Tour

i think you should try the pts carry. i used it for a few holes the other day since i was hitting my driver everywhere (didn't want to waste my pro v1xs). The ball fight was really high and I also got quite a bit of spin on greenside shots. the nxt is not very durable, it almost scuffs as easily as the pro v1x. it is also pretty expensive and i don't think it will last more than 9 holes.

Both are crap. Use balatta balls.

What are those? I've heard of and used balata. They're friendly - play with one long enough and it'll have a big smile for you.
