Thoughts on the Noodle Long and Soft Ball

10 posts in this topic

I am a 25 handicap with a decent swing speed and distance off the tee. I am just not consistent with hitting it fat or catching it thin.

Is this a good ball for me?

Those balls are some of the worst on the market. They start to scuff after being hit, good balls only will grow plastic hairs if they hit cart paths and trees? i used to think it was the fiddler and no the fiddle but there is something to better equipment. My advice is to buy Some decent balls and play courses that are more wide open. Try some Bridgestone E6, they are available for around 25 bucks vs the Noodles for 13 bucks..

if you have a McSports near buy, look into the Wilson Ultra's  i have hit the distance versions and i think they are 15 for 12$..   they are a low spin / compression ball

Also look into like a low compression Maxfli ball...   i picked up two boxes from golf galaxy for 20$

could also look into Top-flite too..

Agree.  I always thought Noodles were terrible and never understood why people seem to like them.

Ok ball for price IMO. I prefer Srixon soft feel. Similar Two piece ball I get a little better performance Out of. Don't want to give more advice than u probably get already but keeping my lead shoulder Down at impact fixed most of my fat shots.

Noodles are very good balls in my opinion.

I don't know where the other posters got their opinions from but mine are from personal experience.

I especially like the Noodle+.

For economy balls, I really think the best deals are last years models. For instance, the TM TP3 for $19 a dozen from rockbottomgolf.com is/was a better golf ball (IMHO) than the top flite Game / Callaway HX Warbird / Bridgestone e6 from this year. They also have 3 dozen ammo boxes (3 dozen balls in a box without individually wrapped sleeves) for $51 a piece fo the tp3, and $45 for the HX hot plus from callaway, which was another great ball.

If you only want to spend a buck a ball noodles will get the job done but I've been getting used DT solos for about 80 cents a ball after shipping and they are WAY better. Nice feeling ball with all the clubs.

I also like Noodles-the regular Noodle. They are my budget ball. The DT Solo is my step up ball more feel for not too much more money.

    • Ok, so range work tonight wasn't horrible. I did notice a slight backslide in keeping my left hip on the wall. But I think it was a pretty slight move, even so I'll work double hard to make sure I get back to not moving off. I didn't notice until I got home that the camera was a little too close when recording FO Driver swings. Was a really good drive, push draw that carried to the top of the hill. Other than small move off the wall and long swing I'm pretty happy with the swing. This drive was almost exactly the same as the face on drive. Push draw to the top of the hill in the distance. I may be crazy, but it looks almost like I didn't go shallow to steep on this swing. I don't have good software to check that though.   Not bad other than the slight move off the wall and swing lengthened a little. No real insight on this swing either. Swing could have been shorter. But now, something completely different!! Have I mentioned how much I love the pitching technique I learned in Erie?? 
    • I also had this same thought about a month back. I asked my instructor and he said he wouldn't worry about it (probably because he was thinking "get your effing swing right first, you can't fix BAD" lol) and said that it's actually probably in the correct configuration to aid in a slice miss in that the weights are there to prevent the cogwheel effect (inducing the side spin). So with the weight at the toe, if I hit the heel it should move back farther than the toe on impact and have less slice spin. I think I have that right, maybe I'm loony. 
    • Ha ha. I thought for a while that I wasn't as bad at golf as I was at counting to 5 (or 7 or 8). Sadly, Game Golf confirmed the high scores are real. I feel bad for the owners of the golf courses when they get hit by a drought. I guess the same can be said for anyone who's business depends on appropriate weather (farmers, ski resorts). I wonder how difficult it is to bring a course back to shape when it gets that dried out.
    • If you can get fitted for long clubs - even if you pick them up used - this would help your game the most. BTW, the TommyA 845 irons are #1 on my list of cool golf clubs I've never owned. (People have let me hit them, and they had good feel!) 845s will get you through the first couple of return seasons, or maybe longer! On FWs, at least hit a 4W and see how it flies. Some golf tests indicate that the average golfer can hit the 4W more reliably and sometimes longer than a 3W. It just depends on how you come into the ball. I have carrried 4W + 7W for four seasons now.
    • Literally... From June 1 to July 10 Trumansburg NY was the driest place in Upstate NY.  I have no reason to believe that has changed.  We got rained on for about an hour yesterday and overnight, but not enough to do anything useful.  I've never seen the golf course this brown or the ponds so low... if I wanted to get my feet muddy, I could have grabbed about 10 balls... they were probably all mine anyway. Figuratively.  I just played my third consecutive terrible round.  Every time I play seems to be the worst round of my life.  They only reason I kept score was because I got a Game Golf belt unit and wanted to try it out.  I like it: I can't count very high without help.  Anywho... I decided t take a week or two off from golf, not touch the clubs, and recharge a little bit.  I may, in that time, do a grossly inappropriate rain dance because hey... you never know.
