Gotta love a yellow ball ... - Page 2

Re: Gotta love a yellow ball ...

What about Noodle Ice Crystal? I don't think I have ever hit a ball with a cover. Hitting yellow balls isn't all that bad as I recall...been awhile.

Re: Gotta love a yellow ball ...

I love the idea of dying a ball yellow, however i am suprised that the coloring didn't mark up the face of your clubs... that wouldn't be cool... I played in some serious fog lately and had a sleve of Z-Star (tour yellow's) I was the only person who didn't lose a ball because if you get to within 50 feet of that thing, you can see it. My playing partners were jealous!

Re: Gotta love a yellow ball ...

There's a guy over here, Katsumasa Miyamoto who recently played the WGC-Bridgestone and nearly broke the course record with a 62 in the third round, and was in contention to win, who's always used an ORANGE ball! There's a Japan Challenge Tour player who's pioneering pink balls too, which look a bit silly haha.

Probably the best ball I've ever used is the Kasco Kira in Yellow; http://www.tourspecgolf.com/Kasco-Ki...-Distance-Ball - not only doe sit look awesome and easy to find & see, but it's one of the best all-round balls I've ever played.

So I picked-up a box of Pinnacle Precision's in optic yellow.

I played them yesterday and here's my verdict. About 10 yards shorter for me than a Pro V1 or a Z Star X off the driver and felt similar to a Z Star X (off the driver). Similar distance off my irons but a bit harder feeling than any of the premium ball mentioned above. Checked-up fine on the greens for me (full shots and chips). Felt good off the putter (Odyssey white hot tour 2).

All in all a good little ball. If your looking for a solid inexpensive ball (and it comes in yellow), give 'em a try.
I wanted to try the NIKE BOB balls.

Didn't want to start a new post so hopefully this addition doesn't get overlooked..

 

Does anyone else see a reduction in spin with yellow balls? I've used the yellow E-6 and B330-RX and while the RX does grab a bit more, I still find them rolling out too much.

 

Is this a problem with the Srixon yellow balls or can you get more spin on those?

 

Thanks in advance.

 Glad to see more manufacturers coming out with their balls in high-vis yellow.  If I hadn't just picked up 100 barely used Callaways in white a while back, I'd be looking hard at a yellow ball.  I HATE losing balls that should be findable.

Now try playing an orange ball in the snow!

The Wilson nuClear orange is my ball in the fall - bright orange is the only color I can find in the leaves ...

I finally got a chance to try the Srixon Z-Star X in tour yellow today, and I think Im in love!!! That ball was fantastic for me! I can tell you from personal experience that it spins more than a Bridgestone B330RX. I do not think the spin has anything to do with the color, but more to do with the ball itself. When I think spin I dont think E6 or B330RX. Both those balls are produced for less spin… Which is specifically why I played the B330RX for a while.
