What ball(s) is in your bag? - Page 9

post #145 of 207

Taylormade TP Black LDP's and Top Flite D2 Feels.

Callaway Warbirds (stocked up at Dicks with them on clearance) and Titleist DT Solos.

 

I really want to try the new 3Up ball as they're fairly local to me (and I know someone who's doing some marketing for them), but given that I lose a sleeve+ every round, I can't stomach $40/dozen balls just yet.

Srixon XV is the primary, but I only carry 6. That way, if it is one of those nasty golf ball losing days, i will only allow so many good ones to slip away. My backup is the NXT Tour.

The Wilson Staff 50 Elite is an underated ball indeed.

 

Especially good in cooler weather.

 

However my go-to everyday ball is the modest Titleist DT So/Lo.....hands-down best all-around  ball for the money-especially for average swing speeds (85-90 MPH)  

 

When I feel like splurging I'll take the V1X  (cant hit the V1 for neither love nor money!) V1X goes straighter than V1 for me and still has great feel and spin around the greens.

NXT Tour is a very good ball, indeed.

 

Nice combo of a distance ball and "feel" shortgame ball....but not that much better than the Titleist DT So/Lo, imo.

I am packing both NXTs and DT Solos... Both good balls...

I play a Bridgestone B330-RX.  Occasionally I play a Titleist Pro V1.  I have been considering trying a Srixon, but not sure which one fits my game. Don't know anyone who plays it.  I was thinking the Z-Star.

Pro V1X. 

 

It took a while but I finally found that this ball works well for me. In the next tier down the Top Flite Gamer V2 wins. Hard to believe but the Gamer is probably the best ball for the money. I have been through a few boxes of Nike 20XI Xs and game them away. The Pro V1 is a good ball, but just a tad too spinny. It is probably the best feeling ball out there. I need to try the Bridgestone, but I have been playing the Pro V1X for over a year for free. I won 2 dozen at a tournament, received a dozen for my birthday, and my cousin who is Titleist Staff sent me 3 dozen.  The X is a little longer, spins great off the wedge, and doesn't balloon in the wind.

Normally it is a Bridgestone B330-RX. I recently ordered some Titleist Pro V1, Nike 20XI-X, and Srixon Z-Star XV at a discounted price just to try them all out.

Really? I've found tht the x spins too much for me everywhere, including off the tee. Sidespin is wicked when I get across it, which is probably my most consistent fault.

Orlimar  318UC - Great three-piece ball for distance and spin around the greens.  Plus the price is under $30.  Got a sample last fall on their site and am hooked.

Pro V1

The new Mizuno ball once the send me a dozen. ( hint hint). Bag is actually an orphanage for adopted balls I try out.
post #160 of 207

it was funny, the other day i found a bunch of balls on a couple of holes at this secluded course built around a protected forest.  i didn't want to play my srixons since i felt like i might wind up losing some of my own, so i played the ones i found instead.  i found all the big name balls mentioned already - pro v1, v1x, bridgestone b330, calloway, penta, gamer v2, and a few other randoms.  the only ball that played differently than the others was the gamer, and it was significantly shorter off the tee.  but the others were pretty much identical in performance, with the spin winner going to the v1.

 

i'm sure they are all a little different, but at one point i wasn't even looking at which ball i grabbed and just hitting it and going and i never really felt like any of them were superior to the others.

At the beginning of a new golf season I will clean out my bag and put in new balls that are a combination of Titleist (Pro V1 or V1x), Callaway (Hex Black or Chrome, Tour ix or iz,), and Bridgestone (Tour B330, e6, or e7). After a round with Titleist, I will usually change to Bridgestone or Callaway, and continue to rotate the different brands, unless the round with the Titleist (or whichever ball) was exceptionally good. In that case, I will continue using Titleist balls until the streak ends, then will go back to rotating different brands of balls.

 

My golfing partner, John (a 20+ handicapper), plays Pinnacle, Top Flite, Nike, and Titleist NXT balls, so when we find lost balls he will give me my favorite brands and I reciprocate. Any other brand goes into the water ball pocket of our golf bags for long iron or fairway wood shots over water. (No use losing a good ball to King Neptune!)
