That's what I'm going to do this year once this snow gets out of here, bought a dozen each of Bridgestone e6 tour yellow, Srixon Q-star tour yellow, Nike One Vapor speed (on sale) and Top Flite D2+ Feel. Hopefully one of these is my ball with my swing speed of 85-95.

I would add/recommend Top Flite Gamer V2's.  it is more comparable than the D2+ Feel to the other balls mentioned.

Having used the D2+ feel, I can recommend it based on 1$/ball price point. It's a great ball for iron shots, pretty good off the tee, and it feels brilliant off every club. It doesn't have urethane spin, which applies to partial shots, but on full shots you can stop it with ease. As long as you make a full enough swing to compress it, it spins just the right amount. On pitches and chips within 30 yards or so, expect the ball to release a bit unless you play it high, but you could get it to check up if you're skilled enough.

I'd prefer the Gamer or a firmer tour ball myself, but I'd use these balls again.

Gamers are $10 per dozen.  Less if you buy larger quantities.

I would like to know exactly where; they're 20$ a dozen online and in stores here. I got a 40$/36 deal, but I would consider buying 4 dozen at that price... I have to try out the B330, Srixon Zx, and maybe the Nike 20xix since I haven't tried the Gamer since I added 15mph clubhead speed.

And don't say Ebay.

Can't get the Gamer here anywhere or I would try it.

    • Day 121.  While I plan to do more practice later today, I've already done some.  I hit a dozen full swings (two slow practice swings, focusing on a setup priority piece at setup and my better backswing whose picture changed recently).  6-iron, indoors, off a mat, into the net, real balls.  I also hit about two dozen chip shots (less than quarter) with my new-to-me 54 degree sand wedge.  I plan to do more work later, but I'm not sure I'll have time to post later, so I wanted to make sure I got the daily challenge part in at least. 
    • The only times I really get ticked about hitting a third shot is if I'm still closer to the tee box than I am the green.
    • Day 80 (6/24/21) -   Chipping and Putting Practice - spent about 20 minutes on the practice green with my 58* wedge spot chipping to a target (my folded golf towel) 2,3 and 4 paces from the edge of the green, then hit 3 chips each to various holes trying to get the ball to within 4 feet of the hole (which I did about half the time). Then practiced lag putting, 3 balls each to different holes trying to get within 4 feet of the hole, which I did around 2/3s of the time.  Range practice - 9-3 swings using my 7 and 8 iron and a noodle station; small bucket. Focused on keeping the club face facing the ground on the downswing and making good contact.
    • Best part about this pit stop is that they did more than the pit stops in the videos above. Not only did they change the tires, they also adjusted the front wing at the same time on both sides. All in under 2 seconds still.
    • If it was about skill, and if the green reading books made bad putters better than they otherwise would perform, we'd see the worst putters on tour being closer to the best putters because there is less of a skill gap between the two. Instead we see that the gap between the best and the worst at putting has only grown larger since the widespread introduction of green reading books. This means they have not had any measurable impact on a player's ability to putt well, because it isn't allowing the worst putters on tour to keep up with the best like you would see if some part of the game took less skill suddenly. I ignored the skill issue because claiming it's a matter of skill is patently ridiculous, and provably false. They can say whatever they like, doesn't mean a word of it is true.
