It depends on the model. The $25/dz model whatever that one is... Is pretty soft. Then they also have the 20XI that isn't like hitting a goddamn rock.

Top Flite Gamer (2 dozen for $30) and Top Flite Gamer Tour (2 dozen for $35) both at Dicks. Great balls. They also have Pro V x outs in the low $30 range for 1 dozen.

^^^^^^^^^ This. The Top Flite Gamer is awesome. jack

I found the TaylorMade Noodle (Soft and long) to be a nice ball and you can pick them up petty cheap at Dicks or on line.

^^ Both great choices.  I've played both the Noodle ("Long and Soft" or "Easy Distance", depending on your swing speed) and Gamer.  Both are inexpensive balls which feel good off the club and perform reasonably well.  The Gamers are a bit more expensive than the Noodles, but I'd give them the nod as the better ball if the few extra bucks isn't a big deal.  People shy away from Top Flite because of their reputation over the years for rock-hard distance balls, but the Gamer is probably the best ball they've ever come out with.

Three pieces and urethane. What else do you need? Doesn't matter what it says on the outside of the ball.

What else do I need, to be able to find these in the US to try out! All I can find are uk stores.

Yep, forgot about you yanks, sorry. I have however seen them advertised new on canadian ebay if that helps?

I would also recommend the Gamer Soft (2 dozen for $30) which is a 3 piece ball like all of the Gamers and IMO the best of the non-urethane low compression balls.

Got my Project(a) balls today. They look great, can't tell why they're "practice". They seem to compare nicely to Pro V1s but less than 1/2 the cost. http://taylormadegolf.com/Project-%28a%29-Golf-Ball/DW-SY628.html#product-description-full

I've been playing Project (a) most of the year and I can't tell the difference between them and ProV1 from a performance standpoint.  Great ball, but I only seem to be able to buy them online.  Golfsmith has a space on the shelf, but it's always been empty whenever I've looked.  Last time I ordered them I bought 3 dozen, still have 2½ dozen left to hold me until sometime next year.

Buy 3 dozen of the Snell Get Sum Balls for $15/each dozen

Agreed. I just got the Snell sample pack and played Get Sum and My Tour Ball for 9 holes each today. You will not find a better ball in the "cheaper ball" category for under $30...

    • Going through the list, and happen to find Sand Valley (25th) and Lawsonia (23rd) 🙂 Best public golf courses 2021-22: GOLF's Top 100 Courses You Can Play For the first time our ranking of the best public-access courses ventured outside the United States into Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Caribbean. Enjoy!  
    • I know this is off topic but wanted folk to know that if they install the 14.5 update it's important that they now get the 14.5.1 update which fixes some security issues with the 14.5 update: Apple releases critical iOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1 security updates The iOS and iPadOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1, and watchOS 7.4.1 updates contain security patches along with an App Tracking Transparency fix. Thanks.  
    • I think you’re on the right track with this. You don’t want to lift the heel just for the sake of lifting it, but you also don’t want to forcibly keep it down, either. Some people can make a good turn without lifting the lead heel and some can’t. The heel itself is not the important part.
    • I find, as an old geezer just a bit away from the edge of the mortality table, that lifting the lead heel and letting my lead knee point towards or even slightly behind the ball, gives me a bit more rotation and the act of replanting it improves my pressure shift to the lead foot. My handicap is slowing creeping downwards so it seems to be working for me or, at least, it FEELS like it's working...  😈
    • Yeah, for sure! 🙂I work in Technical Support for a living and deal with end users all day long so I understand the importance of caring for the user and the importance of sharing information in forums like this. They've dropped the ball quite a bit on this one in my eyes, but hopefully they can rebuild that trust back for those of us who are willing to stick through it with them.  I ended up buying Pro with the discount they gave me. Figured why not try it. It's version 3.0. They have a 30 day return policy and if it just ends up being crappy for whatever reason(s), I'll just return it and hope the app gets updated and stick with Live. Plus, I got a buddy who had Classic and I could give him my Live version if all things align how we want them to.
