Opinions on Titleist NXT Tour S ball

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

The other day out of curiosity I played the NXT Tour S, 2014 version, and I really liked it. I got long straight drives, and best of all I putted and chipped a lot better with it. Plus a nice soft  feeling off the face.

 

I'd like to know other peoples opinions before I switch. Thanks.

Love it, that is the only ball I play. Well unless I find something decent and toss it in the bag as an extra.

I also play NXT tours love them. I was gaming Bridgestone e6 when shanked one into the woods. I didn't find the e6 but an nxt instead. I finished out the the round with it. I really liked the feel around the green. I haven't looked back.

believe it or not, i like the TopFlite Gamer V2 better, and at almost half the price, for me its a no brainer.

I played the NXT Tour for several years and did try the NXT Tour S.  I have a slow SS (85-90) and lost quite a bit of distance compared to the NXT Tour although the S was a little better around the greens.  I also switched to the Gamer V2 from the NXT Tour and found it to be a better ball with excellent check on the green and longer, especially off the tee.  I have been playing the Gamer Tour and it is almost as long as the V2 and better around the green.  There are a lot of balls that are as good or better than the NXT Tour Series which are good surlyn balls but I believe overpriced.  Look at the Callaway Supersoft, Wilson Duo, and the Gamer S as examples, and the lower priced urethene balls like Gamer Tour and Maxfli U3 and 4 series have received some great reviews.

yeah, for the performance, the NXT/Tour is overpriced.

I like the NXT's, but for the price difference I had just as soon play DT Solos, or for a couple of bucks more, Bridgestone 330 series.

Bang for the buck, the NXT Tour S is my favorite ball.  I only play those or Bridgestone B330RX balls or B330RXS.

My favorite bang for the buck ball for a couple years has been the Lynx Black Cats.  Can always get them at $10 per dozen, but I try to stock up when they go for 3 dozen for $25.  They're not rock hard and feel pretty decent around the green and putting, and seem to be one of the softer "distance" balls that I've used.

 

Edit - just checked, they're 4 dozen for $30.  Guess I'll be ordering a few tonight.

I played the last 2 rounds with found noodles. Soft and long.  Had some really nice shots.  I think I will buy a dozen and see what happens.

NXT tour s is a nice ball, I too lost a little distance with the S, I didn't mind though they feel pretty nice offf the club. I only buy higher priced balls when I run out of Gamers, the Topflite Gamer is so close to all of the $30/dozen balls that I am very happy with that. I have also recently played the Qstar,, E6 and both the NXT tour and tour-s. I bought someMax Fli Urethane  u3s, (Rocks IMO), and was given a dozen HEX Chromes in a tourney I played in. I would gladly play any of the above mentioned balls they are all that close. The exception are the Max FLIs, Don't like them.

For me the deciding factor here is price, the gamers are $15/Dozen and I think if the graphics were blacked out that most high to mid cappers couldn't tell the difference between all of the above balls until you hit your approach, I think the Chrome and the Tour s might check up a bit better.

 I ordered some balls from MG golf.com. They claim that these balls perform very close to the Prov-1 and they have test results to prove it on their web site, so at $20/Dozen I though I would give them a try. I'll post my impressions.

I have swing speed of around 95.   I get the most distance out of NXT Tour & NXT Tour S balls, and I have used many different balls in the past.   The ball works great around green, too.  

post #14 of 22

I play nxt balls, mostly refurbished ones, tried the tour S version last year. didn't see a difference.

 

I like the nxt because I can't regularly compress a proviwan. Only play about 175yards with 7iron.

I recently saw a test comparing all the latest Titleist balls. The NXT Tour was the longest off the driver, had the least driver spin, and was second in wedge spin to the ProV1X (it actually spun slightly more than the ProV1 off the wedge). The NXT Tour S was shorter than the NXT Tour, had more driver spin, and less wedge spin. It is softer than the NXT Tour however.

Can you post a link to this test?

I guess I can say this - it was on golfwrx.com. I don't think I can post a link but just go there and search, it's readily available. What I got out of the review was the nxt tour was a much better ball than it typically gets credit for and the nxt tour s seemed poor in comparison.
