DT Solo. I have 6 dozen and my home course only has water on a few holes so I'll be using them for a while.

I think you are going to like the new SuperSoft from Callaway folks. At $20 a dozen these guys rock. Lowest compression ball out there built for old guys like me with a 90 mph swing speed. They give extra distance off the tee and irons too and they have a nice soft feel around the greens. Real soft feel off the putter. The only shortcoming I can discern from the ProV1 is that they don't check quite the same meaning it will take a little getting used to chipping distance but other than that, I am in love.
I always read of amatuers concerns about a particular golf ball not checking up on a green compared to a Pro V1. Yet, when I play golf and watch golfers, there aren't many who can put enough spin on the ball to check up, or spin back. I just don't know why amatuers would spend the $$$$ on the high end balls when they can't get any more benefits from them than a TopFlite Gamer? At least the Gamer has less side spin then the high enders, and costs 1/4 the price. All this talk of 'action' on the green, and I never see 90% of golfers having any? The best way for high HC'rs to stop the ball on the green is a high approach shot, that's how I do it, and any ball will accomplish that.
When I was a 10 Hcp, it made a lot of difference. Now 15 yrs after my wrist injury, I am a 15 to 19 Hcp so I a more concerned about hitting the green or getting close so I can run a pitch shot, or playing a high Flop over a bunker.
I mostly use low comp balls that reduce the driver spin and get me more distance.
Recently tried the new Callaway Super Soft. I really like the feel a lot. For me the driver distance was very good and the feel off my Wilson FG V2 forged irons is great. I really like the soft impact off the putter too. I use an old Ping Anser 2 - no insert. For $18.99 at my local golf shop they are probably going to be my new everyday balls.
I found one last week.....looks like a one hit wonder....no marks on it. Will probably try it out soon. You are right smebiker, at $19/dozen they will be a terrific deal.
I think I've tried every golf ball available at one time or another. I've worked in a pro-shop and had access to all kinds, hard, soft, cheap and expensive. I like the cheaper titleist balls from the DT so lo to the nxt in different versions. The velocity is one of the hottest balls I believe made and for the money is pretty good.
Recently I've tried the Callaway supersoft and find it to be straight and relatively long, good ball for the money. Right now, if I had to pick one ball to play in tournament play it would be the Callaway Hex Chrome, I just started using these about a month ago and really like them for a medium priced ball.
I have been amazed to watch high handicappers continually buy Pro V1 at their cost. It is a good ball but probably 80% of the people playing them shouldn't be at any cost.
I was recently chosen by TST to test out the 2014 Bridgestone B330 line with Hydrocore. I received the B330RXS based on my specs and they turned out to be fantastic golf balls. The RSX is engineered for swing speeds of less than 105 mph. They performed great for distance (all clubs), spin, durability and soft feel. I highly recommend this ball.
