Turn N Burn

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

I have a fast swing, and I have the stiff shafts from Taylor Made for my irons and Driver. I put good swings on the ball, but i feel sometimes the golf ball fails me. For example I wasn't hitting a titleist very well but then I switched to a Nike Juice and I was really happy with that ball. I want to know what the best ball is for fast swings? Any suggestions? I appreciate all the help in advance. I just joined the forum today . I tried to do some searching on the forum first but had no luck.

Can you explain a little more about how the golf ball is failing you?  Are you saying your golf swing maxes out the capabilities of the golf ball and energy is being wasted because the ball can't handle the impact?

That is exactly what I'm sayinga1_smile.gif I need a ball that can handle the loada1_smile.gif

Have you tried yelling POW right before impact, you know, so the ball knows what's coming?a3_biggrin.gif

Do you mean a Titleist ProV1?  If so, that would be rather odd.

This is a very strange question. I've never heard of a golf ball not being able to handle a particlular impact speed.

 

What do the pros like Bubba do? I think they say sometimes he splits the balls in two, so he's constantly replacing balls into play after the damage.

 

Oh let me guess, you swing harder than Bubba?

 

How long do you hit your drives? 400+ I bet?

 

What's your driver swing speed? Probably like 140MPH

@ Motley01 I'm just trying to ask the forum what a good ball is for fast swings. I never claimed to hit the ball faster or further then anyone. I most certainly have never split a ball in two either. My swing speed is actually 105 on avg and my drives are plenty far. Obviously you have no idea balls are made in different compressions. Your not helping anyone with you advice or making anyone laugh either. So take your bad attitude elsewhere.

For the record, my POW comment was all in good fun.

While a swing speed of 105 mph with the driver is very solid and will let you hit it long for an amateur with good delivery of that power to impact, the fact is is that you're WAY too into yourself if you think that anything but 0% of your problems come from a premium ball not being able to "handle" your incredible power.

 

The only possible problem, even for a very cheap, soft ball, is that with an above average amateur swing speed you'll cut up a cheap, soft ball really quickly with the low irons and wedges.  Sure, you might want to try different balls to find which works best (ie delivers the combo of distance and control you prefer) for your particular combo of swing speed and motion through impact, but again, the problem is 0% that you just have so much power that no golf ball can handle your power.

 

FWIW, any premium ball from any brand is going to handle 105 mph without breaking a sweat.  In fact, you are not capable of overpowering any ball you get that's not explicitly designed for slow swing speeds (and those kinds of balls all say it's for slow swing speeds on the box).  Get over yourself.

I'm just asking for a good ball to buy..... Simple as that.

Look, I wasn't trying to be an ahole, but you should have just worded your question better.

 

No need to explain about your swing speed. Just ask what ball is reccomended.

 

Let's see, these are good balls at decent prices.

 

Titleist NXT Tour

Srixon Q Star & Z Star

Bridgestone E7

Callaway HEX

Taylormade Penta TP3

 

Good luck in your ball seeking journey.

Hi, can I just say that you look like a Sean.You're Irish right? So am I. I have a teacher named Sean, and he gets enraged when people call him Sean. Good times. *wipes eyes from tears*

Anyways, I just hit the NTX TourS in 9 holes. I don't know about thr NXT TOur but if you go there make sure you don't grab the S. They're the opposite of what your looking for, and they suck.

Have a nice life!a1_smile.gif

Plus one rec for the Penta.  That's my favorite ball.  The NXT Tour is a solid ball among the cheaper ones.  I used to love the Srixon AD333, but they replaced that with the Q-Star ( and started charging $30 instead of $20 per dozen), and I haven't hit the Q-Star, but that might be worth trying.  The Z-Star from a few years ago was my second favorite ball behind the Penta.

If one golf ball was best there wouldnt be other brands or types. Every golf ball does something different and Some are made for different swing speeds. The box on the b330 lines lay them out clearly. Idk how the ball can really fail you though. I have a 105 swing speed with a driver and I have never noticed a loss if the ball was too soft, nothing noticable. the bigger difference is on side spin which is related to your swing path and face angle. Something tells me though if you've never cared to research about balls at all and know nothing about them then it's not the ball thats the problem. Not trying to be an A-hole but like some other people feel, you came in here kind of high and mighty.
