Still love the Bstone E5 for the spin and the great value.  Im going to pick up a dozen E7s in the spring and give them a shot though.

Still like the Callaway HX Tour; am open to a new Srixon Urethane Cover Ball; heard the new e5 will have less compression for better feel - can't find the source.

I bought my son the Srixon Angry Birds ball ... lol

For spring, I'm looking at the Innovex V Motion Ball.

I found that the NXT Tour S seems to be the best ball for me right now.....it came out in 2012.

I have 2 dozen Maxfli U4x's that I haven't tried yet.

I have 1/2 dozen Velocity's that came as a gift with the Christmas bottles of Jim Beam Black.  I tried one sleeve and found that they respond pretty well for me.....just not as well as the NXT Tour S.  The velocity's were free and i got to drink the bourbon......good deal!

Looking forward to getting my hands on some bridgstones, the new pro v1x just for sh**ts, and Maybe the titleist velocity looking to replace my e6 for somthing with a little more touch around the greens. THis idea seems to be very common with us handicappers around 15

I'm looking forward to trying the new Hex Chrome+ that is due out in March, I got to hit a few shots with it when I was out at the Callaway HQ and was impressed. I am also looking forward to trying the new Nike 20XI, hopefully it has a little better feel than the original version.

I play the Hex Chrome now, so I would really like to hear more about this Hex Chrome +..

I play the Bridgestone B330-RX.  Has anyone heard of them making changes to the ball for 2013 or is it going to be the same?  I will definitely try a few different balls this year.  Either I will fall in love with a new ball or it will confirm why I like the B330.  I also played the Callaway Hex Black Tour earlier this year, but the balls seem to get damaged from regular use after a few holes which I have never experienced from any other ball before.

I'm looking forward to trying out the new Gamer Tour with the urethane cover.

But not too soon, since I just bought 6 dozen of the Gamer v2s on clearance.

I play the 2012 Hex Hot plus now and will be picking up some of the Hex pros to give them a try once we warm up here.

Played a round with the 2013 ProV1 & ProV1X. Didn't like the feel off the tee but around the greens was amazing, especially the ProV1X.

The Project 5 or Lethal is pretty much a TP5 with a "distance" cover.

Also put into play the 2013 Nike 20XI and 20XI-X and preferred the X for spin control off the tee and around the greens.

I was very happy with the Srixon Z-Star XV Tour as an all around golf ball.

But, I have to say of all these premium golf balls, I will play the MaxFli U4 over them any day.

It's a four piece version of the Chrome, they say it is longer than the current Chrome but spins a little more off of the driver than the HEx Black Tour. I think the retail date for it is in March.

    • I agree that Acree put others in danger. And as I stated before, the laws regarding weapons and/or assault need to be enforced in this case. And the rest of my statements only apply if he was fairly certain this guy was the thief (of which none of us knows the truth). I don't care in the least that he threatened the guy's life or kicked him in the head. If I stole from someone, I would expect the same treatment. I promise you, most thieves know it's coming if they get caught by the wrong person. As for leaving this up to the police to solve and retrieve the property... sorry, but that's naive. Go ahead and look the statistics up of recovered stolen property - excluding motor vehicles. As for the police not using what some may view as excessive force... when someone is acting as this guy did, I don't believe they are very "gentle" with them. I don't think they can afford to be. They may be smart enough not to kick anyone, but they'll make sure those cuffs are on nice and tight. I'd love to hear from a law enforcement officer - even if it meant my opinion was proven wrong. But because the rest of us have zero experience in apprehending a suspected criminal, none of us are qualified to do more than offer our stupid-ass opinions. It's a pissing contest of opposing views that will likely lead to the thread being closed. There is no one way to act in this situation. You can think of yourselves as highly intelligent on one side of the argument, or Dirty Harry on the other. But this crap goes way beyond reason or ego. When faced with the situation, you either act, or you don't. And if you're going to act, you can't go halfway. Probably the best thing Acree could have done - once he pulled his weapon - was threaten the guy's life and leave no doubt (at least that's my stupid-ass opinion). I wouldn't have done what he did and that's why I leave my weapons at home. But criminals love the fact that most of us are passive.
    • Hi guys, been working on the swing. Had a few lessons, playing once or twice a week and got down to a score of 20 over par (92 on a 72). But still really struggling with inconsistency. Losing a lot of balls each round, have a bad miss when I come through the ball with a wide open club face and the ball screams straight right out of bounds. Did this on the first tee this week into someone's house...not good when the club pro and loads of people were watching. A dog was barking for the next few minutes :( Any tips? saving up for some more lessons soon but they are expensive to get as much as I want.
    • Chainsaws get heavy if you carry your clubs, gotta take a cart.
    • So the younger guy on the original is a science teacher in nearby, (for me), Middleborough MA. I think it was high school.
    • I know you mentioned it, but you're showing yourself as a 30+ handicap.  For the next few years, the sole grind of your wedges isn't going to be nearly as important as learning to use them properly.  In your shoes, I'd be looking at lightly used clubs in approximately the right loft/bounce combinations, without getting too bogged down in the next level of details.
