I was looking at the Vice golf ball website, and there was a comment on there about staying away from water balls. According to tests they've done, they don't have to be in very long to suffer damage. As far as inexpensive balls go, I'll throw in a vote for Precept Laddie Xtreme. When they go on sale you can buy a 2 dozen pack for $20! Hard to beat. I especially like them in the early season when it's still kind of cold. They don't feel like rocks and go pretty well.

Golf Digest gets paid for advertising balls, it is in their interest that people buy more expensive balls and lose them. The logic behind that article is stupid.

Yes, use a high quality ball. Virtually any ball you can buy at a golf shop, pro shop, or sporting goods store will be a high quality ball these days. Should you buy the most expensive? I'll just s

Not at all, it's a waste of money. At your level, the ball doesn't make any difference. It probably doesn't matter too much at my level either, but I want to play the same ball all the time. My

Yep, they do say that they dont compare to new balls but as they want to sell as many new balls as they can they would say that. If i was running the company i'd say the same thing :-D.

There have been a few indie tests on Pearl, grade A & B which showed minimal difference to a new ball. Everyone will have different experiences with any type of ball, new or recycled.

My advice is to play the best your budget can reach to whether that be new or recycled.

For the longest time I played the cheaper balls.  I always looked for the best bang for your buck.  Over Christmas I received an Amazon gift card and decided to go after a golf ball that was more expensive than what I was used to paying.  5 round of golf later, the Vice Tour Pro+ was a great choice and I am very pleased with the feel of the ball.  Like anything, you get what you pay for!  All golf balls claim to go farther than the competition.  I am thinking of trying the Taylormade TP5 next, to compare.  Thoughts anyone???
