For the longest time I played the cheaper balls. I always looked for the best bang for your buck. Over Christmas I received an Amazon gift card and decided to go after a golf ball that was more expensive than what I was used to paying. 5 round of golf later, the Vice Tour Pro+ was a great choice and I am very pleased with the feel of the ball. Like anything, you get what you pay for! All golf balls claim to go farther than the competition. I am thinking of trying the Taylormade TP5 next, to compare. Thoughts anyone???
