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.

    • Day 320 Superspeed workout, then some mirror work on takeaway/backswing, and finally hit some balls with 7-iron. Hit the ball well today. Still searching for a good feel/thought to take on course for backswing piece. Current one is okay, but I think I can come up with something better. 
    • Update - I sent an email to Arccos support about my Caddie Link order, again, and received this prompt reply (in part): "... We did begin fulfilling pre-orders at the end of September and then the first week of October our manufacturer informed us that due to COVID they are unable to acquire the needed materials to complete further devices for the next couple of weeks so shipments have halted for the time being. Shipments of the devices will commence the first week of November. We greatly apologize for this delay and issue and once they send yours out we will be sure to send you tracking and status updates."  
    • Hi all, I was fit into both the Mizuno JPX 921 SEL irons (which is a combo set of 6-GW Mizuno JPX 921 tours and then 4-5 JPX 921 Forged) and the Taylormade P770 irons.  I hit both pretty well, and thought the Mizunos had a slightly better feel but the Taylormades went slightly further.  Both had good spin rates and descent angles, although the Miznuo was slightly better on those factors for me.  I feel pretty torn between the two, I like them both a lot looks wise.  My fitter said it was a really close and tough call but that at the end of the day he would probably suggest the Mizunos for me because they're cheaper to get customer shafts and grips with, the lie can be bent more, the higher center of gravity helps a small amount with my miss (a hook), and they will last me longer as I continue bringing my handicap down.  On the other hand, the P770s are a touch more forgiving and go a little further, so it's a tough call for me. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts between the two or advice or perhaps would just like to share which they would pick in my shoes. Thank you.
