Golf Balls - Who's telling the truth?

Recommended Posts

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.
