I am going to switch from playing premium balls to a 2 piece to gain more distance with my irons (see if the extra distance is worth the sacrifice in green side control) for a trial period.  What do you recommend?  I am thinking of the NXT, Burner or PD long?

I will second two of the above suggestions...

AD333 is prob the best all around 2 piece I've played factoring in straightness, spin and distance but I can't seem to get away from the E5(+) as it does seem to hold the greens a little better...

If your just looking for more distance I'd also consider the E6 good value, good feel and good distance...

I'm not putting down the NXT Tour, it's a solid performer (I shot +1 w/ a NXT Tour once).  But I think it's one of the worst bangs for the buck.  You can get 3 and 4 piece urethane covered balls for $30/box, and you can get 3 piece balls with equivalent or superior performance for less money (E6, Gamer, HX Bite).  The best performing two-piece is the E5 (urethane cover), but it'll cost you for a 2 piece ball.  Best 2 piece ball for performance and value is the D2 Feel-$1/ball.

Bridgestone E5 is a good choice, it is a 2 piece ball with a urethane cover so it will provide some spin on those shots to the green. It is priced in the $25 range for a dozen.

A couple of years ago Consumer Reports did a study of golf balls and measured the spin off the driver and 8 iron. Maybe you can find a copy somewhere.  But in case you can't the best 2 piece ball (low driver spin and high 8 iron spin) was the NIKE Power Distance (soft) in the green box.  I think the second best (but very close) was the  Titleist' NXT (which I don't think they make anymore).  But they only criteria was these two spin rates so other parameters were not considered.  But I have played with the NIKE PD soft and it is a good ball IMO.

    • Penn State just mandated masks for all indoors, vaccinated or not. Vaccinated people will not have to be tested, though.
    • How old are you ? 
    • Well, shoot!  And I was just about to invite you to an all expense paid round in the Bahamas with me!  😁
    • I still kinda liked the guy... but not anymore.  I try not to associate with idiots.
    • This was, admittedly, my first reaction when I found out I was about to be eligible for the vaccine:  I'm young, I'm relatively healthy, wouldn't vaccinating me at this time ("this time" being early March of 2021 for the first shot) keep someone who is more at-risk from getting a vaccine, when they'd have higher need? As soon as I found out (it took an hour, tops;  one call to someone knowledgeable on the topic) that supply wasn't the limiting factor, I made my appointment.   I had my second shot more than four months ago now. At least in the U.S., supply isn't the issue.  If your reason to not get it is worrying that you're taking it from someone who needs it more, not to worry -- you can both get the vaccine, no problem.  But as was pointed out elsewhere in this thread (and in others), Bryson might not have been burdened with an overabundance of schooling.
