I was playing the Q Stars for a while, but I never could get the feel I wanted from them. Switched to the e6 late last season and am very happy with them now. Hopefully they continue to work for me

Srixon Q stars are good balls for players that need less spin and titleist NXT are good also just a bit more expensive but have a softer feel. I play z stars but if I were to downgrade I think it woul

come on man, i'm just trying to have fun with you now but you're way too stuck on what was an inane comment. are you that offended by my handicap or the fact that i found some nice balls i want to try

Loving the nike 20XI's, personally I love the sound, feels like I'm hitting a spring.

And my Driver is already loud, sounds like an explosion off the tee, and carries farthest in the group.

Curious, what didn't you like about the venerable  Titleist DT So/Lo?

I have been playing them as my "go-to" ball  for some time now and believe that they are the best overall ball for most amateurs/ recreational players from the standpoint of performance and price point.

I've never encountered anyone who did not like them, although perhaps preferring another ball....

I'm just wondering what you didn't like about them to form such a seemingly strong negative opinion.

I buy a dozen of the cheapest balls i find for practice, water holes, and when I am playing bad. I play with TM lethal and 20xi on a regular basis. prov1 are ok balls, but i play better with other balls. just my opinion, but you do what works for you.

You're a +2 hcp and buy cheap balls to use on water holes?

Doesn't everybody? I could have sworn I saw Woods dip into his bag and pull out a scuffed up Pinnacle to use on #12 at Augusta last year.

Turns out I found all the balls I hit, plus seven more, so now I've got 24 Pinnacles. I'll save them for the next time it's actually soggy out, give them away to some kids, something…

Has anybody tried the 2013 Bridgestone 330RX? Is it any different from the 2012 ball? I know that the ball changed drastically from 2011 to 2012.

I'm curious about that too... I play the e6 but the DT Solo's are my next favourites. You can get them for $20/dozen over here, you can't beat that price for the quality of the balls.

I just played a round with TM Burner Tour and really liked them a lot. I picked up a dozen for $18. Not bad for the price at all.

    • I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I usually play Wednesdays and Fridays also the odd Monday  . If I don’t play Monday I will often go and have some practice, either that or a Tuesday. I often take the Driver , 3 wood 4,5 & 6 irons out of the bag and go with the rest. Learn to hit shots with the clubs I have ,stop around the green have a few chips ,pitches putts etc.  Also I read Dave Pelz’s short game book a while back. I’ve adapted my bike and can fit a wedge on it. At night I go down to the corner of a mown area by sports fields. I take turns of which wedge, and do pitch & 2 different ‘finesse’ swings. Over summer I’ve gotten a pretty fair idea of how far I hit the various swings & it’s definitely paid dividends . I regularly get up & down from under 100 yards, especially under 40/50.  Before I just sort of guessed which club, and the other benefit is swinging slower I find I’m much more accurate with my direction. 
    • One of the things I have noticed about really good Youtube channels - let alone excellent films, is exactly this. There might be a time lapse that would take hours to video, but it is on screen for perhaps less than two seconds. But it gives the presentation quality. Look at films with incredible special effects and costumes/props - Lord of the Rings, for example. Years and years go into making things like a belt that a camera may never even focus on, or be a hundred metres a way, but the film wouldn't work without them.The total is greater than the sum of its parts. The flip side of this, of course, is that a prop that takes 5 minutes to make and looks like crap it is noticeably crap even if it is on screen for half a second, like a poorly photoshopped "family portrait" or newspaper "front page" with a stuck on headline on paper not even close to the colour of the newspaper. The devil is in the detail and tiny things connect to make the big picture. A bit like golf, perhaps.
    • I’d rather have it shut than open. I can find a swing where it’s more shut than that. Open doesn’t work for me, the extended lead wrist gets me steep and I shallow late, leave the face too open (or shank) going to A7. The last 3 instructors I’ve worked with have told me to bow the lead wrist at 4 more and I’ll get away from that and get steep.  When I try and do that my arms come off my chest and path goes too out to in. When I feel like I drop the club behind me at A4 my arms will go out towards the ball pretty good I think, like in the second swing, at A5 my hands bisect the torso. 
    • My 2 cents is that if you have to add more than 1.5" or so, you are really in need of new shafts. As far as "orange dot length" is concerned, I always thought that the dot color only denoted lie angle, not length. For example, if I were to order Pings, I would want blue dot (1" upright) at standard length (I fall on the short end of standard range). I just came across an old post on here that give a good Ping chart. Don't comment in there unless it is really pertinent though, as it is quite an old thread.
