Srixon Trispeed

Recommended Posts

I've noticed a few of you really like the Trispeed. Are you playing the new version, and if so, how does it compare to the previous version? Also, has anyone tried the Trispeed Tour? Thanks for any feedback.

They're crazy long, the feel nice off the putter, and they seemed to have enough bite - certainly no less than other "feel" balls I play. They fly a little higher off the irons than I'm used to , but they're longer off the irons too, so I just take less club.

They are great!!!! My favorite ball last year.

This year I switched to Gamers bcs I feel I get more bite around the green, but similar in every other aspect, except durability in which the TriSpeeds just rock!!!! I have not tried the Tour version, but eager to do so. I just have over 4 dz balls right now and can't, in good conscious, buy more. Right now I have Gamer and Gamer V2, TriSpeeds, AD333, Mojo, ProV1, and Z Starx (tour yellow) in my bag...the AD333 are my throw-away balls believe or not!

In shots that require presicion and controls I will either pull a TriSpeed or Gamer. Depends on what i started with...

this ball is outstanding
it checks up like a spin ball (I can make this ball sit and hop 6" or pull it back 12") but not too spinny like a Pro V
it is long off the tee and irons
has a great pearcing trajectory
it is PHENOMENAL in the wind - I played in 35+ km/hr winds today and this ball just soared through it
the graphics are simple and a sweet black and orange
durable as all hell - i have 2 brand new Cally wedges and this ball holds u
and the best part for me - the way it feels off the putter is second to none



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

it is a TAD harder than the Pro V, but BARELY

I am playing the 2010 version, sorry can't compare it to the 2009, as i just started playing it for this season

I play it as when looking for a cheaper alterantive to the Bridgestone e6, Srixon ball fitting told me to play this if I played teh e6.
So I did, as in the UK the e6 is £19.99 per dozen and the Trispeeds are currently £24.99 per dozen but BOGOF at my local store, so £12.49 per 12

I love the soft feel of them for chipping and putting, they are long of the driver and straight due to low spin, which makes them great of the longer irons as well.

Only complaint is that my Tour-W wedges are shredding them a bit, but I have no plans to stop playing them at this price

Its surprising that you guys are getting so much spin from this ball, considering it has an ionomer/surylin cover. Id actually looked at them, but saw they were $30 a dozen, didnt have a urethane cover and thought, "why would I buy those when Z-Stars are only $10 more?"

I know what your saying but for me I am getting 2 boxes for the price of one, so £24.99 for 24 balls, once this deal stops I will either get them used or go back to the e6 as they are only £19 a dozen.

Most folks don't have the knowledge to back up their choices or their claims.
The TriSpeed is primarily for Seniors and slower swing speeds. It is also NOT a high spin ball... in fact it rates on the low end of the spin scale for both Driver & Short Irons. It is low compression with a relatively firm cover (also a trait of Senior & Ladies Balls). Pretty much the same stats for the Trispeed Tour, except its cover is a bit softer.
I truely believe that the majority of the folks playing the Trispeed are using the incorrect ball. But then again, its what you get use to, since the USGA specs for ball construction are so narrowly defined.

I think you are 100% correct. I could play any ball once I get used to it - seriously. I've never played a ball that I couldn't stop on a green with a mid-iron. Okay, that's not true - playing a Spalding Molitor, a Dunlop DDH, or a first generation Pinnacle makes it kinda hard to enjoy a round.

What I'm saying is, a lot of people put too much stock in magazine articles and spin data. Try a few different balls and if you find one that is a good deal that suits your game, go with it. I ever start playing 7400 yard courses with rock hard greens on a regular basis, I'll look into a Tour Ball. Until then, I'll look for a line of balls that includes a "distance", "straight", and "feel" version, and I'll go with the Feels.

How do the two compare the "Trispeed" & "AD333"?? I used the AD333 last weekend (only had one) and was impressed by the distance atleast 1 club longer (flew the first 2 greens) but didn't really get a chance to see what kind of spin (as I lost it to the woods..dam 3w..!!) So i'm intrestred in picking some up but would like to know how the two compared distance and spin and feel wise, thanks in advance.

All I know is the Tripseed is very long off the tee for me, I have a 110mph SS so I guess it's not supposed to work, but it does. I consistently stop it within a foot or two with anything up to a 6i as well.

Are you changing ball hole to hole? Are you allowed to do that if the ball is not damaged?

I find the differences between brands of balls less and less. I do notice more spin on high end tour level balls , below a 9I and around the green, they will spin back on occasion. But since I am not good enough to do it consistently thats not a plus. I usually play Bridgestone E5 when greens get hard in mid summer and E7 the rest of the time for a little better wind performance. I have played the new trispeed, I would say the tour is similar to the E7 with a slightly softer feel, but about the same performance. The regular one seemed almost identical to the E7.

I get much better responce from the Tri Speed. I think is a great ball for mid handicappers. I get very good back spin from my mid and short irons. I have been able to make stick to the green with one bounce (few inches), and roll back towards the pin.

AD333 I have used a few times, I think these fly very well...long and straight. On the greens...put well, but I have not been able to get the spin that I want with these. I tend to go for a pitch and roll in most situations with these, bcs I can't get them to bit as the Tri Speed. The gamers on the other hand have much better bite than these two balls. I have more options green side with this ball. The only drawback is the way they shred. I have not playes a round with the Gamer v2 version, so I can't speck to it's durability. I get similar results around the green as I do with ProV1's, but the ProV1's tend to stray on me off the mid and long irons.

I play alot of practice rounds....I rather spend $16 and play 9, than drop $11 for bucket at the range. I enjoy it more, and get to really pratice scenarios this way. As for the ball I usually carry 2 to 3 balls in my pocket out of habit. When I started playing I sliced very badly, so I would drop another ball and try again when I could. So basically I play a single ball per hole, unless I am doing very well with a particullar ball, I will stick to it until i loose it, otherwise I play whatever comes out my pocket.

How would you compare the distance of the two? Do you think the Trispeed is as long or close?

not really sure where you all figure this ball is for SENIORS, LADIES and mid to high cappers???
i can hold a candle to most players and WITH this ball to say the least
yep its not a spin ball, its a distance ball - but a good ball striker can pretty much make ANY ball spin around the greens and make it work

IMO, if you cant make it spin w any ball, you spend the money on a tour level ball to compensate

HERES AN IDEA:

spend less on a ball, use the extra cash for lessons or more golf rounds???
just a thought (and this coming from an ex-Pro V player)

    • Oct. 17 Practiced set-up and backswing for 5 minutes after work in long mirror. Seem to have good set at top without "crossing the line."
    • I'd just ignore the conversion chart and stick to the normal fitting process with the first chart. Like you said, stick to the numbers, not what the color label is.  That conversion chart almost seems backwards. Its weird.  Maybe the new std black dot is a different lie angle from before?
    • The rep didn't tell me "black dot." The factory did when I tried to order "-1 inch" and "purple." They said "using the new conversion chart she's black dot now." But if black is just lie angle, why is she -1"/black and not -1"/red or -1"/orange? Why did -1"/purple (-1.5°) become -1"/black (0°??)?
    • Perhaps the rep that told you black dot is just looking at stock measurements ( like diagram 1). I always gamed ping irons and thought the dot is only lie angle. Not sure if that helps.
    • The reason it's hard to get an objective assessment on golf balls is this...most players aren't sure what to look for when testing different models, plus there is a lot of misinformation that is posted online or well-meaning advice that is simply incorrect, which makes it very confusing. The truth of the matter is what ball works best for me, or the ball that my buddy likes, may not be a good ball for you at all.  There are so many variables, not to mention personal preference, that the ball you chose should be based off of your swing/launch conditions, not someone else. I have conducted thousands of golf ball fittings for players of all types and skill levels, and I can tell you a few things based on my experience: The golf ball will make a bigger difference for a mid to high handicapper than it will for a Tour pro.  I know...this is the opposite of what everybody thinks and what "conventional wisdom" is, but it's true.  How can this be?  The reason is due to our "tendencies".  All players have tendencies...for example, my tendency is to hit the ball a little low and under-spin it, which reduces my carry distance.  Some players have a tendency to hit a slice.  Whatever it might be, we all have them.  The difference between amateurs and Tour pros is their tendencies are much smaller and occur less often.  Because they are more consistent, and have the ability to control their spin and trajectory, the differences in golf balls for them is measured in fractions.  Since their trajectory is very efficient already, the difference between models is like splitting hairs. This is what a pro's numbers might look like: On the other hand, there can be a significant difference for amateurs.  When a player is using the opposite type of ball they need, it's not unusual to see 20+ yards of difference when they hit a ball that fits them correctly.  Going back to my personal example of having a tendency to hit the ball low with not enough backspin, if I chose a ball that was designed to launch low with low spin (like the Bridgestone e7 for example) it would exaggerate my tendency and cause my shots to fly even lower and spin even less.  A ball that will reduce our tendencies will produce noticeably better results.  Here is a typical amateur's numbers: Higher spin doesn't save players as many shots as they think.  In fact, high spin ball cost many amateurs more shots than it saves them.  Spin can be your friend or your enemy.  The trick is to have the correct amount...not too much and not too little.  The more your shots spin, the more everything gets exaggerated.  If you hit a fade, more spin will turn it into a slice.  In windy conditions, a higher spin ball gets pushed around more.  On miss hits, a higher spin ball will curve more, lose more distance, and have an overall larger loss in performance.  One thing I hear a lot is players wanting a high spin ball so they can "throw it at the hole" and make it stop for a short putt.  If you're good enough to wedge it close and make the ball check for an easy up-and-down, then you're good enough to pick another 4 1/4" target on the green about 10' short of the hole and play a lower spinning model.  I'm not saying spin isn't important, because it is, but the majority of players can't control how much spin they put on the ball, and the majority of players spin the ball more than they ideally should. I'm not going to tell you which ball to play, because I don't know.  Telling you which ball I play won't help because you might not swing like I do.  I know choosing a ball is confusing...there are dozens of models on the market, and they all are at least a little different.  I did this for a living full-time, and it was a challenge for me to keep up with everything, so it's almost impossible for the average consumer to know how all the different models stack up with each other.  I encourage you to do your initial testing with a launch monitor, and ideally with the help of an experienced ball fitting tech who can analyze and explain the data.  A launch monitor will save a lot of time and guesswork.  Two different models that go the same distance doesn't mean there isn't a difference. One ball might have carried 230 yds and rolled out 20 yds, and the other might have carried 180 and rolled out 70.  This is a bit exaggerated of course, but my point is even though they went the same distance, one of them is much more efficient than the other and day-in and day-out perform better. If you have to carry a bunker at the corner of a dogleg 200 yds out, one of those balls does it easily, the other doesn't.  When you have it narrowed down to one or two choices, follow up with some on-course testing.  Remember...most expensive doesn't necessarily = best, and more spin doesn't necessarily = lower scores.  When you're dialed in, that's your ball...don't switch around and use whatever ball you happen to grab.  Playing the correct ball all the time will create more consistency.   That is all.  As you were!
