Sounds good. I hope we get to play before summer. Everything is closed until May 5 and probably longer if numbers keep going up.

Yes you guys getting hit pretty hard in the states >> down the bottom of the world here in NZ we hopefully will be out of lockdown on the course before winter ...gutting to be missing out on my favourite best scoring time of the year autumn ....

I'm a Pro-V-1X guy. I've tried several balls over the last year and a half and it performs the best.  I know there are balls out there that are longer off the tee, but The "X" works best on and around the green for me.

Just bought my 5 dozen Snell MTB Black for the season. Hope I get to use them.

I am a believer in using the same ball and not switching.

I use the e7 Bridgestone ball, most of the time. Great ball for under $2 each. 

Unfortunately I think Bridgestone has , or will be discontinuing them. Luckily I have a few dozen in my stock.

I have bought 50 used pro v1s, prov1xs and avxs for 75€. I have yet to play them. They seem in pretty good condition.

While, once upon a time, a previous version of myself used to stalk golf balls in the wild; I have settled, of late, on the Precept Laddie.  They go for around 20 clams per 2 dozen and fall into the Goldilocks zone for me...neither clacky or mushy.  I also like some of the offerings from TaylorMade but they are rather pricey...at least compared to the Precepts.

Does that mean you were often in the woods?  😊  (Hell, I have coyote friends who know more about my golf balls than me)

Yes indeed.  I would play with a single golf ball, until I lost it, then adopt the next one I found.  It was a point of pride to play the same ball round after round...no matter how many battle scars it acquired.  

P.S.  The best place to find high quality, only hit once, golf balls is in the briers.

Srixon Q Star Tour. Great 3 pc ball at a real good price. If you have a slower swing speed try the Srixon soft féel. Its long but you will give up spin around the green. If you swing a little faster the QStar tour is real good.

Currently Vitamin M is preventing me from playing the golf ball of my choice.  I buy used balls at the club and wind up with an assortment.

But given a choice, I prefer the Titleist NXT.  I find the Pro V and its ilk has too much spin for me.  Off the tee I run the risk of excessive side spin taking the ball out of play.  On full shots into the green I really want the ball to drop and stop, not spin backwards, which most tour balls tend to do if hit well.

Titleist TruFeel.  I'm not good enough to play Pro V-1s.

I have been playing the Titlist TruSoft which was replaced by the TruFeel. I still have a few boxes of TruSoft that were available cheap from Amazon but eventually I will have to find a new ball. Just curious if you have ever played the TruSoft and if so is the TruFeel comparable?

I have played both. Titleist sent me a sleeve of the Trufeel to try and give feedback. I liked the ball but find the Srixon Q Star Tour better overall.
