I played them just two days, the 20xi-x shot a even par front and back nice implosion, did the same today with the same ball with the implosion occurring on the front this time.....decided to change to my old ball, Z-Star. I agree with you......the ball feels like the balls you compared them to....i will not play them again...will stick with my softer feeling golf balls, and forget about the 20Xi even if they should make a softer ball.....thanks

Golf Gear mentioned in this thread:
Thanks for the detailed review. IMO a golfer needs to have a certain level of consistency in ball-striking before he/she should proclaim a ball effective/not effective. If you are above a 5 handicap, how do you know whether it is your swing or the ball that failed to perform?
IMO, I tend to listen to the low handicappers when it comes to ball reviews and discard the musings of a 25. That person has no idea what a consistent swing feels like, let alone be consistent enough to rate the effectiveness of a ball.
How does it make any sense to rate a ball on a poorly executed swing? Should NIKE, TITLEIST, ...etc develop a ball that performs well on a shank?
played the 20xi-s this summer and really liked it, long and strong off the tee, lots of spin off the irons very good for shaping your shots, good stopping power, great around the greens. My only complaint is they sound like a rock off the driver, feel is fine but the sound makes you cringe. Not as noticeable off the irons, again a little harsh sounding but great feel, I play Bridgestone J33 blades and no complaints
