You will not regret adding the Bridgestones. Some are even going for more than the Pro V1's on Ebay. Thats where I buy all my balls. I cannot justify the price at the proshop. I just picked up 50 Pro V1's for $52.00 including shipping. All are in almost new shape. Sure they have some markers on them..but oh well. One thing you will find with hitting the Pro V1's is that after the first hole..your going to have some marks on then.

Q3 - I was exaggerating. I'm sorry if you spent time searching your inventory for a matching quote.

The NXT Tour will spin a bit - unlike the So/Lo - and isn't nearly as pricey as the ProV1. I like them, but I have a tough time with urethane balls like the ProV. They spin too much and I have a tough time controlling it.

DT Solo's are junk balls. If you want a forgiving ball with lots of feel start hitting the Pro V1. I switch off an on between the Pro V1 and the Bridgestone B330S. Bridgestone is longer off the T, but the Pro V1 has more feel around the greens. I am a 4 handicapper...so take it for what its worth

I guess for some of us, a "junk" ball works better...maybe my swing is junk so it's a good match

. I have better results with DT Solo's and NXT's than I do with Pro V1's. Not sure yet why that's the case but I've tested the theory enough to know it's true. It's actually a really good thing since the Pro V1's are more expensive.

Golfchief . . . I believe your league may be imposing a 'one ball rule' but that is at its disgression and this rule is not an official rule of golf. Here is a clarification . . .

Your right my league is full of hard core golfers, most play in other leagues and are tired of golfers using a (putting ball, usually brand new) three foot gimmies and guys changing balls in the middle of the fairway because they have to hit over water If they fine a rule in the book thats what we play. If I only played once a week at my course my handicap is 3-4, however I usually play 6 days a week and some courses I've never played. my scores range 73-84 and if the course is open we play rain,snow,wind or sunshine.

Ty - Thank you for the link. Based on that chart I have the correct balls in mind to test.

golfchief - I am very jealous of your life. 6 days a week is amazing.

The Ball Type I play at the moment is the "Precept Uri Tri Extra Spin" it is not the newest Ball on the market but i really do like the High Spinrate and the very nice and soft feel of this ball. The only thing that i had to get used to was the deeper sound when you Putt it... But that doesnt really matter to me and the Price (8€) is better then ProV1 and his high priced friends.

    • I don’t drink enough to get hungover anymore. The last time I got drunk was at my father’s house of all places. My brother opened up a winery and we tested his new wines. 1+ liters later and I couldn’t really tell what anything tasted like much less if I was still drinking wine or not?🤪 Next day, I expected a terrible hangover, but my brother’s wine was smooth enough that all I felt was a bit dehydrated. Played a round of golf after hydrating myself with 2 to 3 liters of water in the morning. My dad and brother slept in really late. Finished a 5 hour round and still got back before they woke up. Played my usual horrible game...
    • I have an over-fondness for beer and have made some efforts to cut down the heavy nights in recent years. As a hacker of the first order, it used to be hard to tell if it really made any difference. Now, that I'm marginally further along, it is very clear that it hurts. My precarious sense of balance really goes to hell when I'm hung over. If golf is in the plan the next morning, my limit is 3 beers. If it's any sort of competition, I'll try to make it none.
    • Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time....  
    • Golf - Find time here and there to practice/play on the sim. - Consistently start the ball a couple of degrees to the right.  My stock shot is the draw, but I can get a little steep and pull draw it.  Shorter clubs miss greens and go too far and the long clubs don't stay airborne when I pull draw it.   - I pretty much have my carry yardages and typical misses, but I'd like to go through the process of making my shot eggs like in LSW.   - Hope to maintain average ball speeds with these clubs as a way to monitor my striking: driver at 155 mph, 3w 148, 2i at 135, 4i at 133, 5i at 129, 6i at 125, 7i at 120, 8i at 115, 9i at 109, PW at 103. - STOP HITTING DRIVER OUT OF THE HEEL.  I think I'm swinging out a bit and my arms run away from me trying to that Rory draw with upward AoA and push draw, resulting in a heel hit.  Going to try addressing a farther away tee and hitting the inside tee peg or feel like I'm hitting the toe to remedy this.  This really only happens with my woods, but it's worse with driver than 3w.   Fitness - Continue my great progress from the past year.  This year, however, I'm focusing on losing some body fat by eating properly.  I like to eat.  A LOT.  I'd like to get down to about 200 lbs. - Modified 531 program: M- barbell row, deadlift, bench press, pull-up variations (each @ 7 reps/60% training max, this is one circuit, do this 3x).  THEN, deadlift 531 protocol.   T- power clean, overhead press, squat, pull-variations (same as above).  Then, overhead press 531 protocol.  Then superspeed. W- bb row, dl, bp, pu (same).  Then, bp 531.   R- pc, op, sq, pu (same).  Then sq 531.  Then superspeed F- off Sat- 531 row, 531 pc, superspeed. - Hope to add at least 75 lbs to dl and sq this year. - Superspeed training.  I'd like to hit a PR of 140 mph with the green stick.  Normal swing.
