What ball(s) is in your bag? - Page 10

post #163 of 207

2013 ProV1 and ProV1x - I am trying to figure out which one is better for me.

post #164 of 207

Bridgestone B330 RX, Bridgestone E6 (when my swing is not quite on). I have tried others, but keep coming back to the RX. Long, straight, good spin around the green and great feel off the putter.

A friend just picked up a box of Wilson Staff Fifty Elite balls for me. I've heard good things about them, but haven't had a chance to try them out yet. Plus I really like the yellow color!

Switched around a lot but have settled with Bridgestone E6. Really like them
post #167 of 207

Bridgestone e6 for me.  I don't lose a lot of balls, but I still sacrifice enough of them that 4 bucks a pop doesn't make any sense.

Taylormade Penta TP5. Those of you thinking why is a 25 handicapper playing a premium ball, my home course doesn't have any water or forest, and the only thing holding me back is the fact I'm a junior so I don't hit the ball very far. Back to the ball though, it's brilliant, and I love the amount of spin, not too much like Pro V1s.

No problems here, but buy used. Because you may play on a tougher course one day and you won't be happy when five $4 balls go missing...

FYI I bought a 50 pack of TM Tour balls from lostgolfballs.com yesterday for $25 with free shipping. Can't be upset when you lose a 50 cent ball that plays like a $4 ball.

I'm a Wilson Staff Duo guy. $20 for a dozen and they feel great off the driver and putter.

My ball of choice has always been the TaylorMade TP Black. I'm down to my last two boxes. Otherwise, I have a ton of balls I got from the office which I can't complain about Titleist Pro V1s.

I play TP5's and since TM released the Lethal, the TP5's are $25/dozen and lower.  Still not as good as 50 cents, but there's a big difference between what you bought and TP5's.

I have been regularly using the Bridgestone 330RX or the ProV1, but temperatures today were in the low 40's, the ground is kind of soft and there was a decent wind blowing, so I used some NXT Extremes that I had in my locker. Cut through the wind pretty good and carried pretty well in the cold. Approach shots ended up a little deeper than I would prefer because of the lack of spin, but I think I scored better than I would have with the other balls.

How do you like the 330RX? Compared to the NXT Extreme, how is the spin? Do you play the NXT Tour S or the older NXT Tour? What is the spin like compared to them?

I had tried the NXT Tour a few years back when I was trying to settle on a ball because I was sick of paying so much for ProV1's. The 330RX was almost as expensve, but I found it to be perfect for my swing speed. It had very little spin off the tee (read sidespin, my biggest swing fault) and still behaved pretty well in holding a green. I liked the NXT Tour as well, but I just decided to maximize what I got from a ball, so I settled on the 330RX.

I have found that the current 330RX has been drastically changed and I don't like it anymore. Not as long off the tee, and decidedly more spin. I only used the Extremes yesterday because I had a sleeve in my locker, but I only think it performed well for me because of the weather conditions (windy and cold). I am going to give the NXT Tour another shot because, two years ago, it was my second choice after the 330RX.

My favorite ball is Srixon Q Star. Second place Bridgestone B330-RX.

definitely.  i play the 50c taylormades only on the dicey holes that are narrow and have lots of water where my chances of losing a ball is high.  otherwise i play my Srixon XV.

My uncle is a pro at finding golf balls in the woods, I can't tell you how many pro v1's and taylormade penta's he found me that are practically brand new.  Also just got some of nike's 20XI-X balls from last year on sale for $25.  Can't wait to try them out

I also bought some of the Nike 20XI-X's on sale. My favorite ball is still the Bridgestone, but the Nike is a very close 2nd. They both seem to have less spin off the tee, but spin well at the greens.

Srixon q stars, gamers, and e6's in that order. All are good though
