What ball do YOU use? - Page 4

Re: What ball do YOU use?

Hmm, I find the Taylormade TP reds to spin LESS.

A lot of high-handicappers can afford the expensive balls, I guess. If I had the money, I'd have the best of everything. My handicap is 15 and going down. I rarely lose a ball. I have no problems buying and trying the best -- I'd rather not lose a good ball than a crappy one :)

Re: What ball do YOU use?

I bought a dozen Nike Juice Balls at the end of last year and never put them in play. I tried them out very early this year and was struggling with my putting and felt that they didn't have the feel I needed. This also coincided with someone giving me a dozen ProV1's so I took them out of play. I had bounced back and forth between the ProV1 and the DT SO/LO all year. Unfortunately I am out of both right now. I put the Juice back inplay on the last hole Sunday after hitting my tee shot out of play. With the Juice as my provisional I hit a perfect tee shot and put my second from 235 on the front fringe. Two putts later I had saved bogey with a penalty for a lost ball. Using it last night I was putting well and put a ball on the green on a 220 yard Par 3 that I rarely hit. I will keep them in play for now and see what comes of it.

I love the Srixon Soft-Feels (and last year's model is $14.99/doz..sssshhh..don't tell anybody).  They are soft and feel great off the irons, around the green and putting.  I knwo there's a price to feel stand point..but with these..I'd say you lucked out..they're priced great and feel better.

Not to mention exercise use, it is the upper lost ball that you can use for a public performance.

There are a few wounds, dirts, but is the beautiful article which is in a beautiful state.
[lost ball (used)]
It is most suitable as a ball for exercises that are course use possible luxury. (there is the case that entering logo and name is mixed.)

■About the quality of the ball

[S grade] It is choice lost は, the lost ball that can enjoy a play in mint condition (used).
     Because of a new ball equal article, logo mark, the name do not enter.

[Class A] The outstanding ball includes a wound, a dirt, a mark name, but is lost ball to be able to use enough in a course (used).
[Class B] It is the lost ball that is most suitable for exercises with some luxury (used). It is an outstanding ball of the usability slightly.
[Class C] A deep-discount ball for exercises. As for the wound, the dirt, the change of color, the painting, the things such as screes are mixed on the surface. It is lost ball

I use whatever Pro V1s and Pro V1x's I can get my hands on...

And yes, that means foraging into the forest for strays... :)

Gamer v2. I want a ball I can consistently afford and performs well.

I've been playing Callaway HX Diablo and Bridgestone E6, trying to decide which I prefer.  I like both but so far the E6 has a slight edge.  Just seems to feel/sound a little better.

One thing i cannot afford is 'golf ball possessiveness'.  I play mid-cost 2nd hand balls, not the best nor the worst. If i find a near perfect ball in the water or woods, something that catches my eye, oh, say a Nike with the Tiger logo or some 'hot' new ball i immediately mark it and toss it in the bag. I do not want to think of it as special or free or costly. It's only another ball along a long, long road.  My most important task, always, on the course is my performance of the next shot.  I have had great shots with sh*t balls and bum shots with $10 balls.  If i ever think that 'this is a nice ball, i want to own it, do well with it and show the world', i am usually on the incorrect mental path.

I am on the golf team for my highschool and we get either ProV1s or Penta TP3s to play with (brand new, not used) so I use them. When I play on my own, I use the leftover balls that I get before each match (one ball) since I don't lose em. I don't have to pay for top of the line golf balls, it's great ;) Both offer good distance and spin.

I also forgot that I have a dozen (maybe 10 now) of Nike One Platinum. They're like 2 years old but they are top of the line balls. My uncle gave me them since he never used em. I also have a dozen of DT Solo and then some older DT series balls, and Callaway Warbird bird balls with the Red Sox logo on them. I should be good for the next few years hahah

Great point. One round I was playing poor with my Bridgestone E6's.. decided to pull out one of the Noodle Ice balls I had from a gag gift.. hit it right down the middle beautifully, got birdie on a par 5. You can feel a difference for sure.. but if you're hitting well... you're hitting well no matter what ball you use.

I like the soft feel!  feels good when you hit that sweet spot!  :)

The only thing that matters to me is how a ball feels off the tee. If it feels soft off the club I tend to be more accurate. Less about preference than what I avoid.

post #72 of 91
Was able to test out a few balls today.. as i found them during play.

Noodle Long n Soft - soft and long.. heh. But was too easy to hit for me.. felt like nothing. Wont buy.
Nxt Tour - Pretty great ball.. deserves some love. Performed really well..irons and woods and on green. Would buy.
Gamer V2 - Still my gamer :)
Prov1 - Good hitting it.. but I just can't spend that kind of money. Won't buy.
D2 Feel - Better than the Noodle.. worse than the Gamer V2. Would buy though.
Pinnacle Gold distance - Reliable, does some good work everywhere. Would buy. Wouldn't mind a few sleeves.
