Nike 20XI-s golf balls

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I found these for $25 a dozen, so I thought I'd give these a whirl. I will start that I haven't played a round with them yet and have just putted and chip a few in the house. My first impression was they just felt hard. It felt like an old top flite. I know feel is subjective but did anyone have the same feeling or someone has played these how do they perform? I will also say that some Titleist Tour Distance felt softer than these.

That is pretty cheap for those balls.  I have never played Nike balls before.  I played Titleist Velocity's that felt really hard to me.  I have read some reviews on the ball and most people find they have great feel and spin.  Maybe they will feel differently to you when hit them at the course.

I reviewed the X model below. I found that they were hard to compress with the irons and lacked feel off the putter. Distance was fine with driver and it stopped fine.

Good review, I bought a dozen of each, I'm nervous to try them, given the S already feel very firm. Off the putter if felt very clanky, and that's with a copper insert putter. As stated above I thought the titleist tour distance felt softer off the putter.

Thanks, 

 

They are hard off the putter and irons. For full swings, I felt they would be good for guys @ 110 mph driver swing speed. I just never felt I could compress the ball the get the most out of it.

Thanks, that SS is definitely not me, I'm about 98-102 driver SS, but ill give them a shot, at worst they will make good start of the season balls, as I tend to lose a few more then.

They will work for sure and I found them to be extremely durable. Much more so than the Pro V line.

I found the 20XI-X to be a little softer than the S. I first tried the S and off the face of my driver and irons, felt a little hard. The X did feel a little softer and I did get better contact and distance, especially with my driver. Off the putter face, it was still a little clanky but somewhat comparable to the Titleist NXT Tours in that regard. I still bag the 20XI-X. I believe they're on sale for 25-30 bucks at Nike outlets if I remember.

I agree with you, I pulled a sleeve of the Xs and they did seem softer.

The guy I play with often plays 20xi-S balls.  He seems to love them.  For me personally I used to play Nike One Tour's for a brief time but went back to ProV's. Just can't seem to find another ball that feels as nice off the club

That's cool, I played 9 holes with the 20XI-X they seemed decent its hard to say as I was in Ohio and was playing mud golf and my swing was all over the place. As for ProVs I've never really cared for them.

I love ProV1s and ProV1Xs...but my amateur swing wont support thier need to be hit properly to reduce side spin...b3_huh.gif

Lol, I never felt the benefit of a ProV, shoot I stick those tour distances no problem. For someone that can dial into a yard of their distance and control the spin I'm sure a ProV is great but for me, ill play what's on sale.
