I had a weird experience with a NITRO. I found it on the 8th hole of a par 3 course on Long Island, and I decided to use it on the next hole. I hit my tee shot into a bunker but I chipped in. For about the next year I would pull that ball out when I really want to go for something, and it always seemed to pull through. Unfortunately I lost it someway or another, so the luck must have run out of luck at some point.

But, yeah, the balls are crap. They might be $12 for 30 but it's really a waste of money. Spend $20 (or less, they are frequently on sale) and get a dozen of Top Flite Gamers. They're much more worth it.

I second this-D2 Feel is a great ball.  I stopped buying the Gamer back in 2009 because the D2 Feel was 98% as good at about 60% of the price.  If I go into a golf shop needing some golf balls and there are no great deals to be had I'll just go with the D2 Feel at $1/ball.

I've used the D2 Straight and the XL7000 Straight balls. I liked the D2s, but I couldn't tell enough of a difference between them to keep spending the extra few bucks. You may be able to tell the difference, and for the minimal price difference, it is worth trying out.

Now I just buy Nike Crush from lostgolfballs.com.

Hey Fenderstrat62,

Nice handle (although I'm a die hard Les Paul guy at heart ) ... I agree on the D2 vs. XL.       Get this - I have a bunch of old XL's & they had such a hard covering - they make a distinctive high pitched ping sound - totally different than any other ball (which is why I suspect alot of guys don't like them & lovingly refer to them as "rock flites").      I got a new box of XL's recently & they sound just like any other ball now - obviously, Top Flite has changed the composition of their XL ball (probably due to the bad rap it always had).

    • Meh, the book was better. Seriously, hope no longer term problems for the guy in the video.
    • Yeah, I slowed it down. You could pad it. Maybe cut a pool noodle in half or something. Most of my posts have the video. I'm all about the video. 😀
    • Legitimately, I think 30 minutes a month at the range would be enough for this stuff. You go and you just focus on hitting shots where you're aligned to the target and the ball is curving the right way. It seems like you do enough practice and other work where this probably doesn't need much time.
    • I agree, the swing looked good at SV. I agree with the losing focus on some minor details we take for granted sometimes. There are times I will find a line, start thinking about something and forget were I wanted to aim. The number of times I find people aiming way left or right because the tee box points them there is mind boggling. Play a few rounds were you have a mental checklist, or try to commit to a pre-shot routine with focusing on alignment.  If you are just hitting shots at the range to hit good shots, I doubt there is a difference. If you are focusing on making swing changes (exaggeration), then there will be a difference. Still, there is no difference unless you have video evidence. Schrodinger's Golf Swing 😛 
    • Almost never. I don’t go to the driving range. I could say that I’ll change that, but I’d be lying. I wasn’t debating over the shot shape, I didn’t know which direction the ball was going to turn. There’s a difference 😃 I’ve pretty much committed to hitting a fade. Slight push is fine which tends to be my miss more often than a pull. I’ve never taken a swing video on the course that looks anywhere near what I’m doing at home. There’s definitely a difference.
