Which 2 piece ball?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

I am going to switch from playing premium balls to a 2 piece to gain more distance with my irons (see if the extra distance is worth the sacrifice in green side control) for a trial period.  What do you recommend?  I am thinking of the NXT, Burner or PD long?

Srixon AD333 is great 2 piece ball.

Try the Bridgestone TreSoft ball.

I haven't played these personally, but the E5 from Bridgestone might be worth a look since it offers a urethene cover on top of a 2-piece construction.

I will second two of the above suggestions...

 

AD333 is prob the best all around 2 piece I've played factoring in straightness, spin and distance but I can't seem to get away from the E5(+) as it does seem to hold the greens a little better...

 

If your just looking for more distance I'd also consider the E6 good value, good feel and good distance...

Best bang for the buck (in my world anyway) is the NXT Tour.  But I've also liked the E6.

I'm not putting down the NXT Tour, it's a solid performer (I shot +1 w/ a NXT Tour once).  But I think it's one of the worst bangs for the buck.  You can get 3 and 4 piece urethane covered balls for $30/box, and you can get 3 piece balls with equivalent or superior performance for less money (E6, Gamer, HX Bite).  The best performing two-piece is the E5 (urethane cover), but it'll cost you for a 2 piece ball.  Best 2 piece ball for performance and value is the D2 Feel-$1/ball.

Bridgestone E5 is a good choice, it is a 2 piece ball with a urethane cover so it will provide some spin on those shots to the green. It is priced in the $25 range for a dozen.

A couple of years ago Consumer Reports did a study of golf balls and measured the spin off the driver and 8 iron. Maybe you can find a copy somewhere.  But in case you can't the best 2 piece ball (low driver spin and high 8 iron spin) was the NIKE Power Distance (soft) in the green box.  I think the second best (but very close) was the  Titleist' NXT (which I don't think they make anymore).  But they only criteria was these two spin rates so other parameters were not considered.  But I have played with the NIKE PD soft and it is a good ball IMO.

I hit my longest drives last year with the Callaway Big Bertha Diablo ball.
