Anybody have experience with Srixon Tri-Speeds?!?!?!

I love the tri-speeds, my ball of choice! Also they have a newer version coming out this spring so if you google search you can get last years version for $14/dozen, i just got 3 boxes!

I have tried the Tri-speeds. They were good balls but I found the 2 piece AD333 had a better feel and just as much control, a little cheaper too.

While I have only tried these for one cold weather round... I liked what I saw and felt.

Tri-speeds seemed mushy and inconsistent to me.... just my .02

I love gamers minus how they shred... maybe version 2 will be more durable. I am planning to try the AD333, NXT Tour (which I have played), new Gamers, and E5's... one of those will be my ball for the year... hopefully.

Love them!!! These balls are, in my opinion, underrated. They play long, and reduce spin off the driver, and have good spin of off short irons, and great spin off off wedges. They bit, maybe take a short bounce and stick, but they don't really spin back much....but then again that could just be my game

I played them all last year. My first round using them, I went 14 holes without loosing a ball. Highly recommend them. at GG (in stores) the had them for $30 for 24.

Quite honestly I played the Titleist ball for so long that i got used to seeing the Titleist name, and not being open to switching. This Winter in Colorado, i decided i was going to "test" some others out. I got a sleeve of E6's Nike's power soft, Srixon's, and of course Titleist. I chipped and putted with them for the last 3 months, and while driving and iron play hasn't been possible. Bridgestone and Srixon were easily the most consistant feeling from different wedges. They also seem to have appropriate roll out for a "basement carpet" chip and putting session. Quite honestly the NXT's were really clicky, and the feel changed depending on where i hit the ball on the club face. As I got more used to the idea that i could switch from Titleist is quickly realized that they were easily my least favorite ball. The Nike's (made by Bridgestone by the way) seemed nice, but had a blueish hue to them that I didn't like the look of. By far and away the Bridgeston, and Srixon were the ones i kept going to, and hitting again and again. I picked the srixon, but could easily have gone with the Bridgestone. Either way I don't think i'll ever play a Titleist ball again... and I am a Titleist person regarding clubs. Once I opened up my mind, I realized what i had been missing. Just my experience!

All of the suggestions on here are good ones, I recently picked up 4 boxes of Taylormade XD are Target they were on sale for 9 bucks a box. I also found Callaway Warbirds at WalMart for 9 bucks. Bought 4 those. Both in my opinion are excellent bargains. I've played both of them alongside my ProV1x balls and love them both. They obviously don't compare to the ProV1x but if I couldn't afford the ProV1x I would most definately play one of these two.

Try the Wilson Zip Core. I tried all sorts of balls last summer and found I liked the Zip Core best. Great distance and also great feel from 100 yds in.You can find them on Ebay cheap!!!!

since I tend to hit the ball super high, NASA puts out alerts when I'm on the course.

But it's fun though.

Sometimes my buddy sees that super-high arching flight on a short, say a 9-iron, and he says "Uh oh! ... [as in that's going over the green]", and I say, "no uh-oh," that one is just fine...and you know it's going to land pretty much where you want it to, and stay there. Now if only I could get some more control over my long irons, and putts and ...

Taylormade Burner TP is 2DZ for $40. Good deal for a long ball with good greenside playability. If you can find them you can also get the TP Red/Black. I Think they are about $30 dozen now that the Pentas are out.

Might look at some different ones @ the golf show.

Lost Golf Balls is a bit cheaper and has the same stuff... FWIW

    • Next time you see someone on a c*****v****e "news" program pose this question EXACTLY as you have (funny that), ask yourself why they simply pose the "question" as a "talking point" or rhetorical question. They will NEVER ask the question and then go to someone who can actually it - as people on this site can easily do. You'll just see a row of people smugly nodding their heads and smiling as if it' sa "gotcha" question. Problem is, they know that if someone was allowed to answer it, they'd be seen for what they really are. You will NEVER see famous TV  personality X say: "If a person is worried about getting COVID, and they get the vaccine, the vaccine protects them, correct?  Then why should they be concerned if I didn't get the vaccine? Here's expert Y to answer that question."
    • Mattm16... by any chance does the "16" that follows your moniker refer to your age?  If so, that could explain a lot.  I was cocky, sure of myself, hardheaded and knew much, much more than everyone who was older than me when I was 16.
    • Exactly - the notion that opinions deserve "equal time" seems pervasive.  If 99.9% of credible scientists believe something and 3% of people with no education "think" something (with nothing to back them up) they demand that their "opinion" be respected. Without any sense of irony, @mattm16 acknowledges that he "thinks" certain things but cannot justify them. He actually said the following - could there possibly be a more anit-intellectual admission? "I don't have facts to back up what I think.  I just think certain ways."  @mattm16 2021  
    • "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been.
