Don't wanna razz u too hard, I know it's fun to get all into the technology....but that's a little too silly. 100% mental. Your putting is not influenced by any ball technology whatsoever.
Not one bit. Zero.
Not nearly as far fetched as you may want to think. The speed and feel of a ball as it comes off of the putter is the major factor I use in what ball I use. Some of it is surely mental, such as how the sound interacts with your brain and changes the way you may feel about it. However, I can tell a big difference between the way balls putt, and some of them just simply don't work for me. I'm fine with a ball that I'm consistently long or short with.. but some balls I tend to be very erratic and do not putt consistently with them. Those balls go into the shag bag very quickly.
Currently playing two balls: 1. Srixon Tri-speed Tour - Tour Yellow. This is my go to ball. Great 3-piece ball at a good price. I finally found a ball that I absolutely love, and they discontinued them. Have found nothing in the Srixon lineup that replaces them, but luckily I can still find them online. Bought 10 dozen at $15 ea. earlier this year.
2. Titleist ProV1x - I play these on courses with faster green speeds. These come off of the putter a little slower than the Tri-speed tours. If I find that I'm hitting all my putts long, I make the switch to the ProV1x and it normally brings my putting speed back where I want it. I bought 5 dozen high grade (not sure of the exact grade) used balls off of ebay earlier this year for $30 / dozen.
