  1. Well played them yesterday. They were a really solid golf ball. Definitely a little more click to them than the XV and Chrome Soft. Performed well around and on the greens. It was a bit windy and they didn't spin out or balloon on me. Other than me spraying them all over the place at was a ball that was worth the price. Not re-homing these
  2. Tried mine today around the green against a Chrome Soft and a Z Star XV. Was definitely harder than the Chrome Soft and fairly similar to the XV. Seemed to produce more spin on different shots around the green. I felt like I could get this ball to check more than the Chrome Soft and a bit more than the XV when I needed/wanted to. Reminded me of a TP5 in terms of how it reacted around the green, not the same feel though. Still trying to process that, but I was able to do things with the Zero that I was able to do with the TP5. Taking it out on the course tomorrow. Hopefully they don't spin out of control for me on full shots. It was the problem I had with the TP5 and ended up re-homing those balls :-).
  3. I got 5 boxes in yesterday. Way faster than they normally ship (less than a week from order) so I wonder how long they've had them in stock and just hadn't released them until now. I'll take them to test out this week.
  4. Wait a second, this isn't the test for the electric carts? Uh oh, I think I need to get back on line and cancel my order, I was wondering why EZ GO wasn't in this....
  5. I'm surprised the Tommy Armour 845 didn't get the best value. All of the hints Harry was dropping on the pod I thought that was a shoe in. The data doesn't lie I guess but I am still surprised. I didn't dive in too far to the data but was the gap significant? Also, the most wanted and the best value are only $50 apart in price. Does that make the Tour Edge a "pound for pound" king?

  7. Yeah I was surprised too. I can't explain it but I just didn't like the ball. Plus, they seemed to scuff really easy. I was kicking around the AVX or the Z Star XV. Thanks for the feedback
  8. I'm looking to make a ball change. I'm playing the TP5. Though it's cool to watch it spin back when I'm hitting it well, it just balloons on me in the wind and I get little roll out with the driver. I tried the TP5x but didn't really get a great feel for it. So is there any recommendations for lower spinning ball that can still have some stopping power on the greens? I actually prefer playing a bit more roll out on chips. I don't really care too much for soft feel but I don't want to hit pebbles either. I hit an MTB-X today for a few holes (until I hit it into a river) and it seemed ok, but had a really high ball flight. Thanks in advance!

  10. No, at the time I didn't give a ton of thought to switch them out. I might mess around with it in the next week. The shop is good about letting me try things out so I'll grab the Mavrik heads and try them with my shaft. We were really out there for my son who was getting fit for irons. Getting to play around with the different Mavrik heads was just bonus.
  11. I demo'd all 3 Mavrik drivers vs my Epic Flash gamer and felt like the standard was the best of the 3. None I felt were as good as the Flash, they seemed to produce a lot more spin for me but that might have more to do with the shaft in the demo drivers. It was strange that for both myself and the guy doing the fitting the Sub Zero had a really high ball flight. Now I did just pick up the 15 degree fairway wood and that club is unbelievable. Really easy to get up even on shots low in the face. I can't be happier with it. Plus, I only had to come out of pocket about $70 because I won some shop credit in a Super Bowl pool (thanks Mahomes for for TD at the end of the first)!
