Srixon AD333.   Excellent soft feel for short game.  Very affordable.

Right now going through a box of Wilson Staff Fifty Elites-much better performance than I expected.  When I lose or damage the ones I got left I'll go back to the Maxfli C3 Gold/Blacks I have stored u

Wilson Px3 Soft

Tried some ProV1 putting and chipping, and the feel of the Px3 is about 200% softer than the Titleist to me...

i just started using the penta at the end of last season and second go with it i shot 78,so i was pleased with it and the feel is just what im looking for ,it also feels nice with the putter ,not keen on the seam though and i think thats the only downfall this ball has, a seamless penta ball would be the perfect ball imo

Bridgestone E6 when my game is crap or I play courses where I tend to lose a lot of balls.

V1x or Penta the rest of the time. Also got a batch of 08 V1 I play with now and then.

Still playing Nike PD Long (Red Box).  Good compromise for my mid-80's game.  Fairly good endurance, I have played the same specific ball for 18 holes a couple of times (when the water gods are smiling ).

Played Srixon AD333 for a while.  Got a couple dozen Taylormade TP LDPs on sale so I've been playing those recently.  Both are fine.  Buddy gave me a couple Pentas though and I've been loving those.  Not sure if I can swing the price to play them regularly though...

Gamer v2, but I just ran out of my supply and I'm now looking around to decide what to get next. I might restock on that (it's a great ball for $20), or I might poke around a little. The Bridgestone e5 has my eye. If I can continue to to a good job not losing as many confounded balls maybe I'll pay the extra $0.50/ball and try the e5.

NXT Tour is my current ball. Great soft feel off irons and putter. Good durability and consistent flight for me. I was playing the ProV1 for a bit, but I like a bit more roll out on my chips and the spin was working against me. Better roll out with the NXT Tour.

Also like playing the AD333, e5, Wilson FG Tour, and Penta. I'd like to try the Callaway i(s).

Im currently playing the Bridgestone B330-RX, and I love it! Its a great premium "all around" ball. I do have a dozen TaylorMade Penta's waiting in my bag though. I bought them a while back after I tried a sleeve of 3 on the course one day and loved them too! I Just cant decide if I want to play a ball "that" soft. I like how it spins around the greens, but its going to spin just as much off my driver too. Hahaha.

I also like the Srixon Z-Stars.

And when Im playing really bad I bust out the Srixon Tri-speed Tour balls.

Still working on a box of Top Flite Eagles I bought last year and a box of Top Flite D2s I bought last year. Have a cpl sleeves each of those. I actually stopped at Target today to see if I could find another box of Eagles but alas all gone. They were on clearance a few weeks about for about $8/box of 24. I should have bought several boxes but I passed. Once I run out will probably pick up a box of Nike Mojo even though I dont especially like the way they feel coming off my putter.

Yes, I play cheap balls. That way I dont feel so bad losing them.

I like to play with the Taylormade TP Black. I think it feels great and has decent durability. If i manage to not lose them, one ball can last a round or two. Also, since the Penta came out, they are going for like $27 per dozen at most places. Great deal. NXT Tour and NXT Extremes the rest of the time. Great durability and feel great around the greens.

Here's the short list:

Nike One Tour D - just bought 5 dzn. on ebay for $20 each, a steal for a great ball...and due to be discontinued

Taylormade TP Red - only 2 dzn. left, I hate that this ball was discontinued

Bridgestone B330s - was fit for this ball at their fitting day

Srixon Z Star - good ball but like the Tour D more because it's better off the tee

Looks like I'll be looking for a new ball in short order but did hear that TM may bring back the TP Red.

    • @alexschoI would suggest a UW to fill the gap between the PW and SW. If you're a high handicap, I'm not sure you need a 58 degree wedge.  Your priority on short game shots isn't "get it close" (but that's great if you can), but rather "get the ball on the green;  within spots on the green, priority is to spots close to the hole."  But I wouldn't just now use a club that many high handicappers usage tends to risk leaving themselves with yet another short game shot.
    • Good luck.  Make sure you know the rules, of course;  people can and do get casual with the rules during non-tournament play.  Make sure you know what local rules are in effect, too;  you don't want to Jerry Rice yourself out of a tournament if, for example, laser range finders aren't allowed but you use one. 
    • 87 today at my home course.  Hit 4 GIR:  holes 1, 17, and 18, but only one in between (#8, a 4-wood into the wind to about 15', had a tap-in par on that one).
    • Day 151.  Tournament at my home course today.  I shot an 87 with 4 GIR and 7 near-GIR.  Now that I write that out, I feel my long game was better than that stat line today, but I guess not.  I did some full swing practice before the round, outdoors at the range, checking my backswing length as per my past month or so of work.
    • Secured a par at my home course's hole #17 today.  I am not happy with how long it took me to get better than bogey on it.  I hit a poor tee shot, a good recovery punch shot, then a sweeping hook 6-iron to the green.  I correctly read that the lie and setup would hook, aimed well left of the green, and swung.  Big hook, ended on the left side of the green, 15' from the pin, and I darn near made the birdie putt too. Speaking of which, I gave a par at #s 7 and 9 a good run today too.  Still no birdies at my home course this year! 😞
