LOVE THE NOODLE! (but play taylormade)
Budget Balls to stay away from? - Page 2

Noodle, Boodle, whatever. Back when I played Rock Flite and losing a bunch of balls I found a Noodle just off the fairway. I gamed that thing the rest of the day and di great with it. Amazing ball for the price if it is the same as it was back them. I think the reason there is such a large disparity in opinion is that they aren't incredibly durable inside. The core may crack after enough hard whacks so shag it after one game would be my advice.
last time I was at Walmart I found a new Noodle ball - it's their distance yellow. For those of us who play yellow balls, it's pretty clear there are lousey looking yellow balls (Top Flite XL for example ... it's just a dull not overly vibrant yellow). Then there's the highly visible yellow like the Srixon Z Star & Titleist DT Solo - these balls have almost a glow to them & they have reflective metalflake molded into their plastic covers. The $10 Noodles have the metalflake & are just as vibrant as the best yellow balls out there from a visibility standpoint. Noodles have always been the best of the budget balls IMHO...
You might want to review the Golf Digest "Hot List" for golf balls. They are grouped by price point. They had some pretty good selections in the lowest priced section.
