18 posts in this topic

Anyone take a look at the new NXT tour s and NXT tour golf balls titleist has released? They bumped the price up 20$! They also released a new velocity and a new version of DT solo.

The price appears to have gone up a couple bucks, not 20. You may be looking at the list price, which nobody actually charges.

Yeah the price on the NXT Tour balls has gone from 29 to 31 I believe.  Has anyone had a chance to try the new NXT Tour S balls yet?  They are supposed to be softer, I wonder how they feel and respond to the driver?

I bought a dozen of the NXT Tour S balls, they do feel pretty soft but I also was getting more distance... I'm getting old I think I need a softer golf ball :-)

NXT Tour S?

Outstanding ball. I played it today for the first time.

Will be very hard to justify buying Z-stars and Pro V1s after what I saw today.

Long off the tee, soft off the irons, putts like a dream.

And you can get Yellow NXT Tour S balls :)

actually I played a round with a guy who was using yellow balls recently.  I thought it was a joke when he pulled them out at first.  Then at least 5 times in the round we went searching for my ball and his... and found his almost immediately.  with the leaves and brush and junk all over the course, his were much easier to spot.

I agree Dan, hard for me to justify the cost of the ProV1 after hitting the NXT Tour S, just seems to be a better fit for my game

I only played Pro V1x until I tried NXT Tour. They are great and I dont know if I'd go back to the Pro V1x.  For me, they fly lower off the driver, roll like crazy and are just as soft off the irons. They are a little harder off the putter. Titleist has a winner with these.

Oh baby! I was playing the NXT Tours the last couple of years, as well as the ProV1x. With the new S soft version they have now, I can't wait to play them.

No need to spend $50 on ProV1s.

Our pro tossed me a demo pack of the NXT-S and said try them, you may like them.  I did and I do.  It is a good feeling ball.  For me, the shots around the green are the most important and next is a good flight off the driver.  The NXT-S plays quite well and is perhaps only slightly less reactive than the ProV1 and about the same as the ProV1x around the green,  Iron shots are not overly spinny and they flight well.  I will probably keep playing the ProVs, but in the cooler weather of winter and early spring, the NXT-S is a very good choice in my opinion.  A senior tour pro told me he should probably be playing the NXT balls, so I don't think there is any stigma at all playing one.

I bought a dozen NXT tour S balls to try out during my last round.  I gained considerable distance with these things on iron shots(a full club basically) but they still felt soft.  I usually play both Pro-V1 and Srixon Z-stars.  I still can't tell whether i like the NXT's around the greens or not....I seem to have much better feel with the premium balls than with the NXT..but it could just be due to not playing for about a week and a half, as well.  I'll have to keep gaming them when I play more regularly to see how that changes.

I'd definitely say they are worthy of anyone at least testing them out unless you're just dead set on a particular ball.  Like others, if I can save 15 bucks each time I buy a dozen vs. my regular balls, then I'll be super happy.

I have recently had the same experience with the NXT Tour S.

Great ball!

Picked up a sleeve of the Velocity's today. For a distance ball I was surprised at the spin I had on approach shots. Solid Balls. Lost one with a duff into a water hazard and lost another pushing a shot on a par 3 into water. Got one left haha.

Side note on balls-

Being a bogey golfer I know this sounds ridiculous but, I have no problem with the tour balls. I seem to always hit my ProV1x caliber balls (ones I find left behind by the old lazy geezers at my club) really well (don't lose em off tee, stick approach shots etc) . My swing is still developing and I'm not really too keen on a ball yet but I've noticed I always seem to hit them well. It might be the confidence of having a nice ball, but sometimes I like hitting a pinnacle red too so yeah...

Maybe you can only read into different balls so much?

I played with a yellow (DT Solo) and it was incredible how much easier it was to find the ball, and follow it when it was in the air.

I played the new Velocity ball and got great distance even though it was cool outside (50).  Think I'll start using these and save $$ over the Pro V1!!

I usually play ProV1 but just won a dozen NXT Tour from Titleist (Australia & NZ) sweepstakes, so looking forward to giving them a try & see what difference (if any) I will actually be able to notice.  I'm picking the only noticeable difference will be around & on the green.

Great thread guys! Can't wait to give the new NXT Tour S a try. Saving $15 to 20 on a box of ProVs is great. JL

I really want to play the Bridgestone B330-RX or RX-S, but the prices are just getting outrageous for Tour balls.  I picked up a box of the NXT Tour and so far have no complaint with the ball.  I would have tried the NXT Tour S but WalMart doesn't sell them and we don't have a sports store nearby.  I'd like to hear some opinions regarding the difference between the NXT Tour and Tour S.

    • That is what I was wondering when taking the practice stroke.  If I make a mark with the practice stroke in the rough or on the fairway...is that a penalty?  Because I see people doing that all the time...but since I am looking at where my divot/brushed grass was pointing as a reference point...is that illegal?  If I wasn't using it as a reference point would that be then legal?  That seems like some murky waters.  People are touching the ground on practice strokes all the time...
    • I activated Steve Stricker for Sunday's round on a lark, and he rewarded me with the low round of the tournament. For once, I made a smart call.
    • You can't make a mark (that you don't remove) for the purpose of alignment. That is against the rules.
    •  I hate the Be Better Golf guy. He gets great guests than doesn't know to shut up and let them speak. Annoying as heck.   I was really surprised by the poor play in that video. I though tthose guys would be better. But I do give them credit for showing their bad shots. They could've only shown the good ones .
    • Got a chance to take some on course video over the weekend. I should do more of this to get a better idea of what my actual swing looks like. I still need to get a new smartphone tripod and I can start vlogging again. Angles are a little off but nothing crazy. Driver   Stance is maybe a hair on the narrow side. The swing looks better than the results would indicate. I really thought I was still getting the club past parallel and across the line. Irons/Wedge   I didn't get a face on of a full iron swing so I'm posting this flighted wedge instead. Not exactly the same thing but it will have to do for now. Big takeaway on the swing is I'm still swinging too far right with the clubhead a little underplane and too shallow. I've been having some low point issues and it seems to make sense. Miss is still on the toe and an overdraw or a push, although from watching my videos again I realized that I still aim to the right, so I think my pushes aren't even as bad as I think they are, only that I'm already lined up right of target to begin with. I'm going to have to change my pre-shot routine to incorporate better aiming. Pitching   I included the full speed video of my pitching because I wanted to look at my tempo. Still pretty Fruit-Ninja-y. Putting Figured I'd take a putting video. This was on the 18th green, after the face on video of my driver and the flighted wedge, so a mini vlog of sorts. I'm trying something out where I hold the putter with only my right hand and then hold my whole hand with my left for stability. I was playing around with distance control because I tend to leave lag putts way short and I noticed that my left hand in the double overlap grip kind of acts as a brake on the stroke. Putting the hands together lets the putterhead pendulum better under its own weight. As you can see I definitely didn't leave the first putt short and the speed on the second putt was perfect. My putting in general has improved since I've gotten adjusted to my putter modification. Aim is a lot better and I'm hitting my lines which is leading to better results on mid-length putts. I also need to read long putts better, just kind of lazy about it, but I'm leaving some second putts longer than they should be because I'm not reading the first putts and aiming properly. I do like the grip change though and I think once I get used to that, the distance control will be better. I have some thoughts on the full swing but I'll hash them out later. Maybe
