Titleist DT solo VS Titleist NXT Tour

14 posts in this topic

Hi to all,

Currently i play the DT solo, i like the way it flies, it has a good feel off the clubhead (better than some premium balls), and it lasts a lot.
The only thing i miss is a bit more 'drop and stop', but of course you can´t get everything with such an affordable ball.

I was thinking about another ball, first it was the Callaway Tour ix, but i heard some comments about the "click" sound off the clubhead, like if you were hitting a power distance ball. Never saw it on this ball, but i could tell it on the HX Tour.

Now i was thinking about the NXT Tour, many good things have been told about this ball, the only thing that concerns me is scuffs. It seems this ball may scuff very easily.

I am looking for a ball with good feel, distance and good around greens, without having to go to Pro V1. And it must last 18 holes.

Do you think the NXT Tour could fulfill my needs? Should i continue with the solo one?

Thanks a lot

If you like the DT So Lo, why dont you give the DT Carry or DT Roll a shot. The NXTs are nice, but they are a little pricey and IMO they dont spin much more than a distance ball to be worth spending the extra $$$.

Well, ít seems to me that a real upgrade would be the nxt more than either the roll or carry.
The idea is getting the balls used, but in mint condition (although shipping charge to spain willy be high).

i agree the nxt's scuff really easily... but they arent a bad ball...
if you want the durability of the so lo... you can try either the roll or the carry... i couldnt tell much difference when i tested those 2 balls out...
i actually liked playing the so lo

I used to play the SoLo as well, but it seems like they stopped making it. I just don't care for the Roll or the Carry as much.

The Srixon AD333 is worth a look. I think it is very comparable to the SoLo and it's an affordable ball, too.

I compared the AD333 to the ProV1 this summer during scrambles and they were very comparable in length.

The Srixon is softer, but the ProV1 has more green side spin.

I agree, the SoLo and AD333 feel pretty similar to me. I've played the Srixon SoftFeel and it may give more greenside spin as well.

If you're going for value....Try the Wilson 50-50 or the Top Flite D2's

Those are comparable in price and still provide length & as much stop 7 drop as the SoLo's...........The NXT's are hard and more expensive.

Hi, you could also try one of the srixons, say the soft feel or better still the trispeed if you can get it at a favourable price.

the nxt tour will most likely last 18 holes unless you have a full wedge shot on almost each hole. i hit a few half swings a few minutes ago with a pro v1x using my new vokeys and the ball is already scuffed. i would not expect the same thing from the nxt so i think it fits what you're looking for. the only reason i switche to the pro v1x was a big more distance and more spin around the greens.

i think you should try the pts carry. i used it for a few holes the other day since i was hitting my driver everywhere (didn't want to waste my pro v1xs). The ball fight was really high and I also got quite a bit of spin on greenside shots. the nxt is not very durable, it almost scuffs as easily as the pro v1x. it is also pretty expensive and i don't think it will last more than 9 holes.

Both are crap. Use balatta balls.

What are those?

I've heard of and used balata. They're friendly - play with one long enough and it'll have a big smile for you.

    • Because everyone gets bored of blue skies now and again! Crazy winds and serious mood-lighting! First hole has the signature lighthouse behind the green and a great linksy fairway, second is a 114 yard par three that played about 140 yesterday.  
    • A good afternoon of birthday practice yesterday. Did a lot of short game work and went out to the course way after the last tee time to put them in practice in 'real' situations. Finally I did a nice putting drill to gauge areas to focus on - this will be a bit of a regular thing that I go back to now and again to judge progress. A few photos from on-course work: Downwind - 15mph and dispersion from shots at 125 yards, 115, 100 and 75. Nearly pulled the wedge from 75 into a bunker, which would have been horrendous, so that's a bit worse than it looks. Delighted with the rest and all on the middle tier of a three tier green. After about 10 minutes of practising, from 50 yards using a variety of clubs (furthest to nearest) - putter, wedge, hybrid chip. Had to come up a big tier, so pretty pleased with this. Hybrid chip was the right play in that it took the tier out of play, but my default would have always been wedge. Just nice to add another shot to my game - although it will need more practice. Putting: Just need to make more inside 10 feet. Great not to have any 3 putts though! Hole Ft Break Score 1 Score 2 Score 3 Score 4 Score 5 1.         3ft Straight 1         2.         6ft R/L uphill 1         3.         9ft L/R downhill 2         4.         12ft R/L downhill 2         5.         15ft L/R 2         6.         4ft slight break downhill 1         7.         8ft R/L 2         8.         12ft L/R 2         9.         16ft L/R downhill 2         10.     20ft L/R uphill 2         11.     5ft slight break 2         12.     10ft L/R 2         13.     15ft R/L 2         14.     20ft Straightish 1         15.     25ft Double Break 2         16.     6ft R/L downhill 2         17.     33ft Slight uphill 2         18.     45ft Slight downhill 2         Total 32         Strokes Gained -2.81        
    • 26/2/17 - more slow takeaway work. Heading to the range later and will spend time really working on transitioning this work to full swing. I think the feel needs to be that my left arm is glued to my stomach, but will check with video later.
    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination.
