Just ordered 2 dozen NXT Tours from Tincup (Eric). They seem the best for me. Not too much spin but still the feel of a better ball.

Good luck,
Ryan

I voted that that the NXT Tour as the best mid-priced ball, but it really boils down to what you are looking to get out of your ball.

If you want distance, I would go with the HX Hot. If you want feel and spin, the NXT Tour is the ball. If you want a less expensive two-piece that combines distance and spin, the Big Bertha and Srixon AD333 are good options. I am still losing a lot of balls when I play, so I have been using the Big Bertha (can get logo overruns at Golfsmith for $15 a dozen). It goes a long way and has decent feel.

I voted NXT tour but I am looking forward to trying the Maxfli Fire. I have heard good things about it. Has anyone else tried it?

Haven't tried that one but must admit I'm a bit curious to see what its like. They are running a big TV campaign with John Daly featuring these in the UK at the moment. No doubt they'll shift a few boxes.

In my entire life, I've had about 4 dozen Srixon Soft Feel. Out of htat list, I must say they were awesome. I got a ton of check on chip shots and pitch shots, and it came off the driver/woods pretty well. I really like that golf ball - HOWEVER, It's hard to find them anywhere around me. I noticed Golfsmith and Dicks and Sports Authority doesn't even carry them...their's "Jeff's Golf Shop" about 40 minutes from me but that's a hike everytime I want golf balls, you know?

yeah, I was using that ball today. I lost 3 of them [2 in the same lake], but it was a great ball.

For sure, BRIDGESTONE balls kick butt, i would recommend the e6 & e5 to anyone who was looking for a mid price range ball.

Have you considered a Top-Flite D2, i thought they would be crap but i played one today, i shot in the same range that i always do, plus there cheap.

I voted for the NXT Tour because I do believe it's the best all around ball in this category. However, I'd say the Callaway HX Hot (not on the list), Srixon Soft Feel, Regular NXT, and Bridgestone e6 (not on list) are right there too.

I play the Srixon soft feel and the Noodle long and soft. I usually grab a ball out of the bag at random and rarely can tell the difference. The Noodle feels a little hotter of the tee, the Srixon feels a little softer of the wedge, but the differences are barely noticeable.

I just got a dozen srixon soft feel. I am set with balls, but I lost my towel so I was going to get a new one, and there was a deal where if you buy a dozen of any srixon ball, you got a tour srixon towel free, so I got a towel and a dozen srixon soft feel for $20. I can't wait to try them out.

I'm pretty sure that he's alluding to the Titleist NXT-Tour's. Those are the best balls on the list that I've played, but they're most definitely a step below any tour ball in spin and feel.

I would like to try those Bridgestones, I really liked the 330 model but seeing how those run nearly as much as the Pro V1 that is for another conversation.

I voted NXT Tour, as a pervious poster mentioned, they're nicknamed Pro V1 lite for a reason. I just picked up another doz today as a matter of fact. They're on sale at Austads for $21.99 ( www.austads.com ) $5.99 shipping if you don't have access to an Austads store. Still total of under $30 for a great ball.

    • Some background information before you vote... I run a weekly game on Saturdays and Sundays with anywhere from 8-12 guys. Handicaps in my group range anywhere from 1 to 16. Expected pace of play at my course is right at 4 hours. Anything more and its frowned upon. We do not get the earliest tee times of 8am, because the course does me a favor by allowing me to have standing tee times without having to call every week. We have 9:00-9:10-9:20 every weekend.  This morning we had 7 guys, so I sent off a 3some (me included) and the last 4 guys to follow. On the 3rd hole I noticed that there was a 2some in front of us on 4 tee, and one of the guys took 5 practice swings just to top his driver maybe 4 feet. It was still on the tee box. He reteed and pulled one about 60 yards left. No biggie, golf is hard no matter how good or bad you are.  The 2some was not very good, so they were having a hard time keeping  up with the 4some in front of them. I texted the assistant pro (close buddy) in the pro shop and he came out and asked the 2some to try and keep pace or let our 3some through. We waited on every shot on 4-5-6 and finally on 7 green we hurried to the 8th tee only for them to look back at us then drive off. The issue was they were waiting for the 4some to get on the green before they would tee off, and then come nowhere close to hitting it 200 yards. On the 9th tee I finally said, "hey guys, do you mind if we play through? We will get through that 4some no problem and you wont see us again" They said sorry, but the 4some is not allowing them to play faster and that they couldnt let us through. At that point I said, you're a 2some, and 2 hours for 9 holes is not on pace. You need to push the guys in front of you so they know to let people through.  At the turn the assistant pro let us through, and we played through the 4some on 11 without them missing a beat. Ended up playing in 2 hours and 55 mins, even with the hold up (all three of us shot sub 80 rounds). After the round I thank the assistant pro for allowing us to play through, and mentioned that 2 hours for a 2some was not on pace. He told me that they complained that I was pressuring them to push the group in front of them, and that he was a tennis member who they would like to join as a golf member. The assistant pro said he has been giving one of them lessons, and that 2 hours probably should be their pace. I replied with " I have no problem with anyone shooting 120 on a Sunday morning, golf is golf, but when there is a faster group behind its golf courtesy to let them through"  I dont really care what they think, and honestly if they can get around in less than 4 hours Id be glad to have them play in my weekly game. Was I wrong for pushing a group of not very good golfers?  
    • Fired up the smoker and plan to watch in about 35 minutes.  Can't wait to see this match go down.  My money is on Rory, but we shall see.........   @natureboy - How about that 133 YARD ;) wedge shot yesterday into the elevated green with the pin placement in the front.  Mortals wouldn't have a chance at that pin....
    • Not a smart bet IMO.  Just for the fact that Spieth plays so well at the Masters.  I would take that bet on all the major excluding the Masters.  No one in their right mind would bet against Spieth at the masters, 2nd, 1st and 2nd place finishes in his last 3 attempts.  Just saying.....  I believe he will win another Major, @ the Masters.  
    • Yes, some ranges with limited space use "restricted flight" balls that don't fly nearly as far as regular golf balls (60% sounds about right).
