  1. Hi Everyone, I sort of hate to even open this topic up but would honestly like to hear some other opinions. For the last 2 years, ( I just started playing golf 2 years ago because of Parkinson's Disease in my right hand. Exercise does wonders for controlling this disease. I had quit playing back in 1975 due to work, family, and raising kids.) ; I have been shooting just under a 97 to 100 for 18 from the whites. I am a 72 year old right handed golfer and play fairly well, at least I think I do. ( I play the ball where it lies and only move it or touch it if allowed by the USGA rules. But I digress) I recently decided to see if I could break 95 0r even 90 at my age and still play the way I have always played. I shot a 92 last week in beautiful weather and then last Saturday in cold and rainy wind, I shot a 44 and a 38 for a 82. I also have shot several 80's this summer. However, this last time I played, I used a fairly new Titelist DT on the front nine. I made the offhand comment to my golfing buddy that I couldn't remember the last time I played golf, if ever, with a new ball. He pulled the cart over after my tee off on hole #10 and I switched to a new Callaway and promptly hit it in the lake. 😞 (He gave me two new sleeves of a Callaway balls that he had won in a tournament) (I was so embarrassed to hit the first new ball in the lake.) I then took my stroke penalty and got another new Callaway and drove it 200 yards to the green using my #3 fairway wood. I then proceeeded to play the rest of the round with the new Callaway ball. I shot a personal best of 38 on the back nine. I have been told that lost balls are lost for a reason and need to be left alone unless for practice or to give to the grand kids. After my personal best of 38 I am inclined he may have a valid point. The weather has not permitted me to play since last Saturday and it is now Wednesday and I am hoping to get out tomorrow. I have two players I play with who have an 8 handicap and I value their opinions and helpful hints. Both say and play with new balls. They use a Titleist or Callaway. So, anyway, I think I will play golf using only new balls. I will not buy anymore used or reconditioned balls. (I have a lot of balls anyway that I have found) Personally, I noticed my putting seemed to improve by using a new ball over a used one. So count me in as a "New Ball Only" player. 🙂 Any opinions or comments? Retired Old Man
  2. In short, will added vinyl from a cricut machine affect performance (spin, ball speed, accuracy)? Most people will write on their golf balls with marker for identification. However I am a graphics designer with a love of golf. I want to make my own small custom logos to overlay ontop of the golf ball. The vinyl should conform to the ball and still show the dimples just fine. I am not worried about damage to the vinyl that is irrelevant. Please let me know if there has been any testing done, I do not have a launch monitor to test with and without. Thanks !
  3. Has anyone tried the Vice line of golf balls? They look very intriguing to me, I just wanted to see if anyone on here has tried them or even use them regularly. I currently switch around golf balls pretty often depending on what people give me as gifts and also what I just impulsively buy at Golfsmith. I've bounced from the Taylormade Burner, to ProV1s, to ProV1xs, to NXTs, and Nike RZNs lately. I really want to try and settle on a consistent ball to hopefully get more consistent results out of my game.
  4. Hello, I am new here so I will introduce myself shortly. I am 22 years old and I am from Montevideo, Uruguay. I got into golf when I was 6 years old and now I am starting to build my equipment. As driving ranges and golf courses are expensive here, I thought of buying some of these restricted flight practice balls to take to the park. Which ones would you recommend to me? Please suggest some good ones!
  5. So, after near drought conditions in Ireland (which we're just coming out of to the relief of farmers and greens-keepers across the nation) the last few weeks have rendered all courses links-like. In these conditions I decided to really lean into the use of premium balls, to try ensure greens were held, chips checked etc. While doing this, it nearly reinforced my opinion that the 'just below premium' balls seem to suit the way I hit the ball, but damn, those one hop - stop chips with premium balls just ain't the same with 2nd tier or lower. To the point, of all the premium balls, I found the chrome soft (and x too) had an awful tendancy to balloon, or if i felt I turned it over a smidge, it just wanted to keep goin left. I ain't had a chance to check actual spin rates, has anyone found this to be the case? And is there a premium ball anyone finds has less tendency to 'wander'? I find in terms of ticking most boxes, for me, the srixon 333-tour seems to fit my needs/swing. Thoughts?
  6. Besides the price, what is the main difference between the taylormade TP5 and the 2016 taylormade tour preferred balls? I wanted to order the TP5's but want to know if they are worth the $44 a dozon
  7. Has anyone tried the Callaway Superhot 70 balls? I typically play Bridgestone e6, but tried the Superhot 55 balls and liked them. Callaway has changed from a 55 core compression ball to a 70 core compression ball. Hoping to hear feedback on the new Superhot 70, and also if anyone has compared it to the Bridgestone e6. Thanks.
