I am looking for a durable tour ball. Last season I primarily played with the Penta ball. Love the ball and how it performs, but one full wedge shot and the ball is done for me(see photo). I have been using non-conforming wedges and and am switching to the Vokey SM4's this season. That could have been part of the problem I guess. I started buying the practice balls since they were much cheaper for my practice rounds. Still though, it is very irritating to have a ball the only lasts 2-3 holes.
Being from the Midwest I have not been able to play much golf this winter, except for a trip to the south this past week. I ended up finding a tour yellow Srixon Z Star and decided to give it a try. I did not have my regular sand wedge with, but I could not damage that thing.
Has anyone found the same high durability standards of the Srixon balls compared to other tour balls? Could it just have been the wedges from last season and not the ball that were the problem? With a fairly good swing speed I need a ball with a nice low trajectory and can handle being compressed. What are you guys using out there that is durable for higher swing speeds?
