I really like the NXT Extreme. I have seen them in the proshop this year, but they are not longer being advertised at Golfsmith so I am getting concerned that maybe they are going away?? All I see now are NXT and NXT Tour.

I see a lot of recommendations for the Top Flite Gamers. Is the Gamer v2 a noticeable improvement?

Why do you like them?

They're just expensive rocks.

If you're a titleist person, then the best route to go (under a Pro V1), and for a mid-high handicapper, is the NXT Tour. Find them Here for $12 a dozen for like new balls (AAAAA quality). Shine and all.

Some other options that might suit the fancy of a mid-high handicapper include: Top Flite Gamers - bought Here for $13 a dozen like new (AAAAA quality). Bridgestone e7+ - bought Here for $12 a dozen like new (AAAAA quality). Or I'll even go as far as to recommend a Precept Laddie - bought Here for $6 a dozen like new (AAAAA quality).

They just work for me. I found one on a course by chance one round (thought it was my NXT Tour) and didn't realize till the end of the whole I had hit the wrong ball. Any way, I decided to keep hitting it and couldn't believe what I felt was a big difference. Stuck with them since.

picked up the NXT Extreme because they were on sale for $19 at golfsmith. It literally felt like I was hitting a rock and it says low spin but they mean NO spin. I could tell a huge difference in my short game because the ball would not check up at all. Luckily I found some NXT Tour's and Pro V's to finish the round with.

I used the Bridgestone e6+ and Srixon Soft Feel when I was finding my feet, now that I am swinging better I use NXT Tour (or Prov 1 on a good day) if I am having a bad patch I go back to the Bridgestone e6+, I loose a bit of distance but they go much straighter due to the lower spin :)

The Srixons I buy new as they are £14 a dozen, the others however I buy from http://www.acegolfballs.com/ here in the UK.

Simple - go to walmart or target, swap out the cover on a ProV1 box with a DT series cover ;)

Kidding of course - I'd say my favorite ball to play when I'm not shelling out for premiums are the Titleist DT So/Lo (if your place still has a few boxes laying around, you never know) or other Titleist DT series balls.

I expected the Gamer2 to be an excuse to raise teh price on the same ball because the original was a huge bargan. Golf Galaxy has the G2 at $20/doz, though. Now my only concern is that they didn't screw up the ball. I have a few dozen closeouts of the Gamer 1 left to use, though.

Anyone play the Gamer and Gamer 2 that comment on the difference, if any?

I've played with TM TP Burners for a couple years and loved them. I just recently changed to Titleist Pro V1X since I can get used ones that are just like new at a great price from knetgolf.

    • Lesson on 12-8-19 I came into the previous lesson about a month ago with a ton of forward shaft lean at impact. You can see what we tried in the previous posts. But I struggled with it/ didn’t do the unhinging right/ caused worse problems. So we went back to bowing the wrist and staying deep at P5.  I worked on this a ton last year, so this shouldn’t be a problem. This is also how I like to swing. It’s not everyday the coach tells you to to swing how you want. I’ll take it! But as soon as I started doing this...all the forward shaft lean came back. Still this is more important, so I must do this first. Moving on to the fun part, fixing shaft lean. Basically I must explode up with my lead side: leg, hip, shoulder My lead shoulder wants to go too far forward and around, it must go up. It feels like it starts going up right after I bow my wrist in transition. For what it’s worth, it doesn’t feel like I’m leaning back at all through impact, just up.
    • I recommend doing full body workouts. Maybe some extra emphasis on lower back, glutes, hips, abdominal, and thighs. If you don't work out often, then just doing an entry level program would be good. 
    • Okay yeah I see what you are saying and yes I do have problems with a consistent low point. Or consistent anything lol.  I also like the stuff by George Gankas and I try to follow the armpits, knee caps, ball of feet setup position.  Anyways I hate how the straight leg looks so I am going to toy around with trying to keep it flexed. I'll also see how it affects my low point consistency.  Thanks for checking it out again!
    • Comparing OSU versus Clemson Roster (247 Recruit Ratings) Biggest Matchups 1. Clemson's WR versus OSU's DB/S 2. OSU's DE versus Clemson's OL Maybe an unrecognized advantage, OSU's backups are really really good. There looks to be a step down in talent in Clemson's backups. 
    • I think @rehmwa was referring to a @chile quote, not me. Anyway yea, I'm also interested to see what the Aussie crowds do with this 😄. And piggy backing on what others have said, coupled with his history and the act itself, it really is about all the stupid ways he's decided to cover this up in the aftermath. And then yesterday, he decides to turn himself into this victim/hero/star-of-his-own-revenge-tragedy by saying that what Cam Smith said about it was "personal." Really? I mean, I guess he's in Australia at the moment so he can contact Mel Gibson and ask him optimal revenge strategies to use this week. Definitely a solid resource. Maybe Braveheart revenge will be more effective, I dunno. But as an American I guess I can do some mental gymnastics and make this personal along with him. Let's teach them internationals some manners, Patrick!!!
