Sounds like I need to check out the B330's.

Totally, I really like the ball. As I stated in the B330 thread. If I didn't get the occassional free dozen of ProVs, the B330 would be the ball I would buy.

I play whatever i've got lying around. I've played in too many tournaments and have so many random sleeves and boxes of balls, that I can't justify buying more. I did get a free sleeve of the prototype ball Mickelson is playing though, I'll post a review about it when i swing it a few times.

Being a reletive newcomer to the game I fear for the lives of my golf balls. Therefore I'm using middle of the road choices like Nike's TA2 spin and the Maxfli Noodle both of which seem like a good choice for me at this stage of my game. The have a softer feel than the cheapo choices but dont dig into my wallet as deep as top of the line balls do.

I have to agree with muskegman on this one. I just never really bought expensive golf balls. And my family buys me golf balls sometimes, so I just play with what they buy me.

I do enjoy playing with Nike balls, as well as Top Flite Infinity. I just don't really get into using Titleist much. I bought one case of them a few years back and I think I lost all of them much quicker than usual. So I said to hell with using them, it just wasn't worth it.

But I might try some of these kinds this year, since I hit it a little straighter than I used to. These Oklahoma courses have some nasty weeds and crap in the rough and there is no finding golf balls sometimes in all that wire grass.

I was surprised at the great performance of the cheap callaway balls. The HX 2 piece and big bertha seem great for cheaper balls. I even shot a 69 with the 2 piece last year. I think they are all such high performance anyway that you'd have to be a real pro to tell the difference on many.

Found a Hogan Hawk ball in the shop yesterday so I gave it a shot. Quality ball. Good distance, nice feel coming off the club on full iron shots, nice feel around the greens too!

Hi people

Interesting discussion.Always been a ProV1-X man meself and never thought it would be bettered.Had a couple of rounds this week with the Nike Black one and not impressed.As far as i can tell the cover is made of cheese and durability is not a patch on the Titleist.For a ball advertised as "...great on tight and windy tracks" the stability of flight was pretty awful i thought - although has been exceptionally windy here so perhaps not a fair test.Length is as good as any,and spin was "probably" better than the X,especially on those 1/2 and 3/4 wedges where i find the X sometimes does,sometimes doesnt.....

The new Bridgestones sound excellent from the reviews here (also just had a look on Bridgestone web site),the trouble being that i cant find a single retailer in the UK that has them in stock at present.

Oh well,back to the Titleist......

The Nike Tour Accuracy - TW is still available at Target for $19.99/doz. (at least here on the east side of Washington State). It's a great ball and the one he used before going to the One balls. The one problem is that the cover gets hammered really fast. However the last time I checked at the local Target there was new packaging that said something about a new improved shear resistant cover. I'm tempted to buy a dozen and see if it is more durable. I usually play the Pro V1 and I'd say the performace of these balls are pretty similar.

Note to those who apparently think I'm trying to sell something... I don't work for Nike, Target, or Titlest either As before I'm just sharing my experiences similar to my prior posts.

Which is exactly why this place exists.Its a discussion forum.There are as many different views as they are different golf swings,and as much as i agree that my other post you are referring to may have appeared "blunt", i merely asked you a question ,s i did (and still do) find it a little incomprehensible.However your views and experiences are as valid and personal as any others and i wouldnt knock you for that.

Dont take it so personally

Im glad im not the only one who has found the Nike's shear resistance to be awful.Any high-end Nikes ive used havnt been a patch in that department compared to Titleist for instance..........

****And i got so carried away i forgot to say i use ProV1-X's.Was using the old ones since they came out,and been using the new ones since they came out over here a month or so ago.Overall i cant find anything to top them personally.

I acquired about 45 dozen Nike golf balls a couple of years ago. Some were TA, some were TW and some were DD. I still have 10 of 15 dozen of them in my garage... The one is definitely a way better ball to me than the TW ever was. It is much longer and with better durability. But durability wise nothing touches the BlackMax.

    • Really?  Knowing the name of the caddy would spoil the podcast for you?
    • Day 1: Aftermath of wife's company end of year celebration on Tuesday put my plans on hold, so trying again, again, again or whatever. Worked on backswing - focus on width and depth, with a little bit of toe-up feel. Did this indoors because it's starting to rain, used mirror vision to check on things (need to do this more often/always).
    • Played the back nine again at Minnesott with my son and my friend who’s working back from nerve injury to his right hand (numb little and ring fingers).  He’s contemplating larger grips so we brought a couple irons - one midsize, one jumbo.  He hit a few with each and said he could feel the clubs in his right hand better.  He’s going to work with a fitter about the best grip for him.  How did the round go?  It was a bogie kind of day - one dbl, two pars and six bogies for a 44.  Hit 5 of 7 fairways, the drives were finding the short grass today.  Not quite the same on the par threes, caught the tee shot with heavy 9i on 12 to nearly pin high, but right of the green. Pitched the 58 over the bunker as the pin was tucked tight.  Two putted for bogie.  The other three, 14 was a 6i flushed that landed ball at the back of the green and bounced just off.  Bumped the 50 to get the ball close - not close enough for a one putt par, but rather a two putt bogie.  While it wasn’t the up and down saves for par, felt the overall game was consistent today.  Best highlight was that there were only 18 putts - no three putts today!  
    • Day 23 (08 Dec 22) - Played the back nine today at Minnesott with my son and my friend who recently moved back to the area.  Drill work is paying off as I continue to see more consistent shot results. 
    • I didn't know the gaps were going to be that big when I ordered the kit. The installation instructions as far as mounting them were pretty lacking, I'll do some more research and see if I can find how others have mounted it but I'm not sure how much closer I can get them to each other based on how big the brackets are and how far the brackets/motors stick out from the ends of each tube.   Edit: I did just realize I could make the side screens roll up on the insides rather than the outside like they do now which should help close the gaps some
