Thoughts on Noodle Long and Soft

I have been playing the Callaway Supersoft ball's, but quite frankly I lose quite a few on tight courses.  Consequently I am looking for a less expensive option.  What are your thoughts on the Taylormade Long and Soft?

I have played the Super Soft and the original Maxfli Noodle Long/Soft but not the 2020 Taylormade model. But I am interested in trying as well. Good article that details new model vs old. For the $$ appears to be good option for those of us prone to misplace a ball or two. 😀

If you are losing several golf balls a round,  cost probably should be your determining factor.    Check out Srixon Distance.  2 dz / $20

Rick Shields gave these cheap balls a very good review

I guess I should just give them a try.  At my last driver fitting my swing speed was 87-92.  On the course my average drive is 220-230.  With all the different balls to choose from it's hard to decide which ones to even try.  That's why I always rely on this forum.  I can get feedback from players like me.

Lostgolfballs provides great deals on golf balls that have only been hit once or twice. We sell top models such as Pro V1/V1x at half the cost new. Why? Because all golf balls are used after one hit.

You are welcome!

I've tried them in the past and they are just okay.   If you are looking for a good cheap ball that is low compression I would check out the Wilson Staff Zip or the Wilson Staff 50 Elite.  The Zips can be found on Amazon for $19.97 for a double dozen.  The 50 Elite is about $12.99 for a dozen.  Another ball worth checking out is the new Top Flight Hammer Control.  GG/Dicks usually have specials on these and they definitely in the same neighborhood performance/feel wise as the Supersoft.

i also lose balls during a round so price is a factor. To tell you the truth at my level of play I can't really tell the difference between balls. I have ProV1s and Top Flites, can't tell the difference. So now I play the Costco Kirkland 3 piece ball, they work for me and they are just over a dollar a ball, my price range. I'm sure others will differ from me on ball selection.

A golf buddy handed me a sleeve of Costco Kirkland golf balls to try. I played them today. I'm a 12.7 handicap but that ball is going to make it go lower because I scored a 79 (1st time in years I broke 80)! It spun and checked very well on wedge shots and had good carry distance with the driver and approach irons and even sand shots (not much check from the rough). Obviously, I'm impressed with the Kirkland golf ball. The only con is that my wedges chewed it up so I used 2 balls during the round.

Nice game. My wedge play, (such as it is), doesn't chew up the cover so I'm good for the whole round except I'll lose two ball during a round, (LOL). A guy in the league I play in said he lost 10 yards using the Kirkland ball, I think that is BS, I notice no drop off in carry. Played a very tight course yesterday, little rough and a lot of trees, so I used my 3W a lot, I was putting them out there where the guys using a driver were putting them. Please note that myself and all the guys I play with are in our late sixties and early seventies so our carry distances aren't that long, maybe 200 yards, roll out to 210 or so. I like the ball, One thing I do really like is how it sounds and feels off the putter, I had four birdie putts, our team in the best ball scramble came in 6 under par, won $40.00, good day.

I’ma big fan of the Srixon Q-Star and you can usually get them around $15 a dozen when they run deals on golfballs.com or Carl’s Golfland. I just wait for sales and buy them in bulk.

    • Yes, you can manually tag the putts with the iPhone app, the Apple Watch app, or on their Link belt device. (I don’t have the link—I use either the watch or iPhone.) In fact, it’s pretty common for me to adjust the # of putts as I finish a hole, since I often have to add on the tap in putts—I don’t have the patience to let it register a tap in. You do have to pair the putter sensor with the app. If you don’t, the system won’t work at all (just the way they designed the system, I guess). Found this out the hard way: my putter sensor died, and I tried to re-pair it, unsuccessfully. No big deal, I thought. Except next time I went to play (replacement not yet arrived), it wouldn’t let me start the round: “need to pair your putter.”  Next time the putter sensor died, I knew better: ordered replacement, but didn’t un-pair the dead sensor.  Arccos thought I was chipping in every hole, no putts recorded.  I just added the putts manually as I went. So for you, pair the putter sensor at home (a onetime thing), put it away in your desk or wherever—don’t throw it away, because you’ll probably need it sometime in the future. Then add all putts manually, as I did when my sensor died. Here are what the iPhone app and Apple Watch app screens look like (don’t know what Android looks like—I get the impression it’s set up better for Apple): [Yes, I’m on my third sensor now.  First one lasted about 5 months IIRC. Second one only lasted 23 rounds.  Both replaced free under warranty — forget if it’s 1 or 2 years. But I’m a little concerned they both died so quickly.]  
    • Another cold day where it didn't get above 50 during the round. Played the outside (Hills at Community) 45-46-91. 4 pars offset by 4 doubles and a triple, the rest being bogeys. Only two 7s on the card which is good by me, just can't get back into the 80s. Iron play was as good as yesterday, if not better. Driver was keeping the ball in play which helps too. Just some poor 3 wood shots that really hurt me, one being a full top that went 5 yards in front of me. Glad that Ohio weather hasn't shut me down all the way yet. This also marked my 60th round played at my home courses for the year. I've probably played 80 total though because my courses were closed for the first 2 months of Covid.
    • Pushing club out further. Can really feel all my ribs..:-)
    • There’s a button that opens up a zoomed in view of the green, and on that view, you can place the flag and the location of your first putt, and any chips close to the green. It only records the location of the first putt as far as I can tell, but you can increment the number of putts on that view or the overall hole view.
    • Managed to get one of two drills recorded before skies opened up. Letting my back completely open up to target to get a good turn and pushing out club away from me to get width. Pushing club away can be better for sure.
