Srixon created a winner by offering the Srixon Z Star and Z Star X in the optic yellow color.  They now have an orange ball although I don't know if it's available in the U.S. yet.

I expect other companies will also jump on the colored ball bandwagon.  I play the Srixon Z Star and will test the Bridgestone B330-RX just due to my swing speed but I can definately see the optic yellow balls better than a standard white ball.

Loved the Zstars...both regular and x...i'm lookin to try the new nike's mentioned in the OP's link...my pops plays the RX, just sent an email to him to let him know the yellow range balls now come in RX sleeves lol...hard to believe other companies won't release other premium/better quality balls in yellow as well.

I use the Bridgestone E-6 Yellow balls.. but its a toss up when the greens are dry. Dry greens means I'm switching to my RX or RXS balls.

In all honesty, I lose yellow balls much like I lose white balls. I have a tendency to lose balls primarily in cacti, lakes, and thorned bushes. Oh and in areas of forest with questionable noises coming from within. Haha.

I think the main point is that there is a company that is listening to what people want. Now Bridgestone, if you could make a ball that goes where I want it to, regardless of my swing, that would be super!

Wanted to pass this along.  If you like the e6 yellow/orange edition.  They are on clearance at Golf Galaxy for $21.99

My local shop even has them for $19.99

I went to Target today and they are still $26.99

They say limited edition on the box so I guess Bridgestone meant it because they came out around November I believe.

I bought a dozen e6's in orange as my emergency/winter ball. I might have to pick up another dozen if they aren't making them anymore.

Compared Srixon Z Star yellow with B330 RX yellow.
Z Star marginally longer, B330 softer and less durable - great around the greens though. I still prefer Srixon but there is a very little difference. $$$ will decide.

By the way e6 yellow is a good all-rounder.

I have used the Bridgestone B330RX  white and yellow balls and the Srixon Z-star white and yellow.  For me, the Z-star outperforms the B330RX in spin on approach shots and durability, and pretty significantly.  I like the feel of the Z-star around the greens better,and the spin around the greens.   The B330RX might be a little longer off the tee and off the irons.  My swing speed is pretty close to 90 mph, give or take 1 or 2 mph.   I wish I knew what the difference in distance off the tee is between the two golf balls.   As far as I am concerned, if the B330RX isn't at least close to 10 yards off the tee I would give up the distance for everything else the Zstar has to offer.

    • I would say the Ace wins.  Hard to deny them the prize to give it to someone who need 2-3 shots.
    • If you know you are better, just get enjoyment out of beating them 😉 If not, mindfulness is a good way to try to not stay annoyed. 
    • So today I was paired with a couple of annoying golf partners.  I would guess they cost me a few strokes, but we know that’s not possible as only we are responsible for our shots.  But maintains focus with the guys who play only a few times a year can have you lose focus and you can’t wait for the round to end. A few of these guys are in this video, especially Mr. Mood Swing. Enjoy:   
    • First, welcome to the Sand Trap!   Second, in my mind, of course an ace on a par-4 wins!!  Now if you get someone who pitches in for 2 I can see a discussion, he's just as close, but in a case of a tie, the win should go to the guy who did it in fewer shots.  I don't know what a proxy is worth in your group, but he can use it to payoff some of the drinks tab for the ace.
    • How does that work, you fly side by side? I'm still getting the hang of keeping the plane steady. You have to be really gentle with the controller sticks. I think I wore out the batteries stalling, making the controller rumble.
