Well - I played (golfed? sported? gamed? rocked?) Top Flites.
1 - they come in 18 packs - 18 holes.....lose a ball a hole......logic wins
2 - less than 60 cents each
3 - I hit them really well, and my short game didn't require a lot of touch
1 just lost my last one.
I have about 3 dozen nearly new Titleists in the shag bag - just found this season. Shiny and new looking - six flavors in there (ProV1, V1x, NXT, NXT S, Velocity, and DT Solo). (any bit of wear or discoloration on ball assigns that ball to the 'crappy' shag bag).
So I'll start hitting those now. Since I have no idea which model to use, I'm starting with the first couple I pulled from the bag. Lucky winner is "NXT Tour" whatever that is. Since I bought a very nice putter, I think it's a good time as well to move.
1 - feels pretty decent - a bit 'softer' IYKWIM
2 - hits just as far as the Top Flight
3 - I like little more 'feel' on the short game and putts
Nice - and better than going and buying a box of something else.
(I have a raft of Callaways, Nikes, Taylormades in the bag too. handful of Bridgestones and Srixons to - we've got OPTIONS)
