  1. Testers Wanted (24) Titleist Blind Ball Test This test will be conducted by Titleist and their partners, however we are helping them find the right amount of testers - yes, you read that right, all 24 of them!! You will receive and be evaluating two different balls from Titleist (1-doz of each variety) and providing feedback directly to them about the performance of each ball. While this is not a development ball, you will be shipped a ball from their portfolio to evaluate its performance to your game...which could feed
  2. So I recently did the Titleist virtual ball fitting and it was between 3 balls so they sent me 3 2 packs of the potential balls. My next step is to figure out which one works. The fitter’s suggestion was to take the balls out and hit shots from different spots on the course and see how I like them. Well I don’t have the ability to just go out on the course and hit multiple shots with different balls to test things out. So I thought to head to our local PGA Tour Superstore and rent a practice bay and hit these balls on their systems to see if I can see any differences with the numbers. Long

  4. Been on the forum for a bit now, just wanted to talk about what’s in my bag and what everyone else has working (or not working) for them. I have just recently changed drivers, that being the Taylormade SIM Max 10.5 degree. I took the shaft (HZRDUS 6.0 76g with the yellow writing, not the smoke) from my PING G30 and had the new tip installed because I absolutely love it and they are harder to find now for some reason. Aside from that, I have had the same clubs In the bag for roughly 3-4 years now. As mentioned, I have the new sim driver, ping g30 3 wood and 3 hybrid (both stock stiff shaft), Mi

    Price Trigger

    I like Pro V1 and Pro V1x balls. I like to suss out a good deal on new ones. When I find a good deal, I will buy in quantity. Just curious, what is your price point trigger on your favorite ball? Is there one which will compel you to by in larger quantities: 5 8,10, 12 dozen? I found one supplier of TP5s for $20/doz. - they were legitimately acquired by the seller. I bought about 12 dozen. Recently, there was an ebay auction of 35.5 dozens Titleist's. 3 dozen were AVX, About 5 dozen total were half-dozen boxes of Shamrock and Ryder Cup models of Pro V1. The rest were Pro V1 and V1x. Only
  6. I'm wondering what experiences other people have had with the Spalding SD Tour and SD Tour X ball sold at Walmart for $25/dozen. I've bought a dozen of each now and have been impressed to say the least. I found both to be long with the non-X version being longer for me and the spin on the non-X version is tremendous. The amount of spin and penetrating trajectory I get with my mid irons on the non-X ball is what caught me off-guard. I was on a 175 yard par 3 last night and hit two 6-irons and they both did a short hop and stopped hard. I'm a more of a sweeper and getting my 6-iron to hop and st
  7. Please use this thread for all discussions, impressions and reviews of the new version of the TP5 & TP5x golf balls from TaylorMade The new TP5 and TP5x golf balls will be available at retail on February 15th. NEW SPEED-LAYER SYSTEM The new Speed-Layer System is comprised of four increasingly stiff layers to produce more ball speed. The result is more carry distance off the tee, more control in the wind, and more spin around the greens. NEW HIGH-FLEX MATERIAL (HFM) The 2019 TP5/TP5x feature a new material called HFM—delivering for high
  8. Hey gents. Was curious if anyone could tell me the difference between these two. Maybe I'm inept but I couldn't find what specifically separates these two balls. I currently play the BXS but I went through their online golf ball fitting by entering my stats. The entire way through I'm fitted for BXS but the last stat, driver distance puts me in the BX as the choice. Numbers are as follow: Swing Speed : 105-107 Ball Speed : 155 Launch: 13 degrees Backspin: 1900 Distance average 270+ Is it distance or is it softer cover?

  10. Hello there! Since there aren’t near ranges where I live and courses memberships and fees are expensive, I have searched for alternatives. Found the famous Birdie balls and the Almost Golf Balls and yesterday I came across this new ball: Sci-Core practice ball: here’s a link to a video of them: https://youtu.be/sjVC1mCJEF4 I have to admit they look good at least. They seem to be similar to the Almost Golf Balls. Has anyone from this forum tried them? Would love to see your reviews and experiences
  11. All this talk of the MGS Hard Rock Challenge and the ball test recently has me thinking about the hardware... I know I *should* be gaming one model, and probably one I'm fit for at that. But the cheapskate in me just can't pass up on a free wayward ball, looking for a home. Nor can I bring myself to just toss the 24 pack of two piecers I walked away from Christmas with. So my question is this - what do you do with the random balls you might come across one way or another? Do you keep em all? Hit them into the woods? Do you have a threshold of quality that determines if it's a keeper
  12. This is a thread for those who are interested in reading or sharing golf ball comparisons! Personally, I am in the stage of personal ball testing to try to find my next gamer for the next season or two. As such, I have been and am in the process of testing a variety of premium golf balls to see which fits my game and personal preferences. My posts in this site will be coming from off my new website (linked here for those who might want to check it out: https://griffinc6.wixsite.com/golfreviews) and will be in the form of a head to head matchup between two of the balls I am considering.

  15. So on Wednesday I'm headed to the Team Titleist Invitational at TPC Sawgrass. It will be 2.5 days of golf, getting to see and demo the entire 718 line, and getting to have a Q&A and discussions with several people from Titleist HQ. I went last year to Pinehurst when the 917 lineup was introduced and it was a fantastic time, filled with lots of great information directly from the sources. I'm really interested in hitting the new 718 lineup, probably focusing on the AP1 and AP3 but might also like to see what I can or can't do with one of those TMB's. So if you have any questions
  16. Recently, I received a complimentary sleeve of Titleist DT Trusoft 2nd Generation golf balls (available in golf shops on September 21, 2017) with a request to compare these to the ball I normally play. I was skeptical that I would see any significant difference as I've always thought the swing is more imporatant than the brand of ball you use. I was surprised to see that was a considerable difference between the two, using as much scientific evidence that I could muster. I was able to play a round yesterday on an uncrowded course where I could spend a lot of time using the tech toys at my disp
  17. Dean Snell knows golf balls like Thomas Edison knew light bulbs. Dean has been designing golf balls for 25 years and owns 38 patents. Perhaps you've heard of some of them? Oh, like the Titleist ProV1? Or maybe the TaylorMade Penta TP, Tour Preferred/Tour Preferred X or the Project (a)? Yeah, those. The dude has his golf ball street cred. Snell has been marketing his own brand of golf balls direct to the consumer since the beginning of the year, and took “Best Overall” in MyGolfSpy's Direct-To Consumers Buyer's Guide last March. Here's what our reviewer had to say:
  18. Snell Launches Canadian Website! That's right folks, the #1 ball not on tour is now available to all Canadians without the excess fees of dollar conversion, duties and cross border shipping! This has always been a sore point for me because by the time they arrived you're paying the same price as any other tour ball. But those days are now behind us with the launch of https://snellgolfcanada.com/ For those that might not recall, we tested a golf ball not too long ago that sent shockwaves across an industry. and now the official press release: SNELL GOLF CANADA L
  19. NIKE RZN TOUR 2016 Recently received the Nike RZN Protos, which I'm told are the Platinum. Weathers been crappy lately, but finally got a chance this weekend to do some comparisons around the greens. Luckily I have 5 of the older models to compare. Initial reaction is they are softer, closer to the old One Tour's. Last few models are definitely clickier than these. Roll off the putter and wedge feel is quite nice. Will report back as I get out more.
  20. Just when I was getting used to the new Titleist DT Trusoft, I received a small package. This letter was in it. I am always excited to recieve Titleist Test Balls. Seems that they arrive in November every year. Has anyone else recieved the titleist Test Balls? If so, which ones did you get? Kindly post your reviews in this thread so we can all compare.
  21. This recent blog post regarding the latest TM ball prototypes caught my eye: http://www.mygolfspy.com/first-look-taylormade-2016-tour-preferred-tour-preferred-x-and-projecta-golf-balls/ I've never really given Taylormade golf balls the time of day just because i didn't think (perception wise) they were very good. But i had heard good things about the Project [a] golf ball and recently had a chance to test it. I've been playing with it ever since. I typically enjoy lower compression balls and prior to this i was using the Callaway supersoft. Love the way it sprung off the club face and felt
  22. Winter Shut Down I hear rumor that some of you can't play golf year-round. During winter, you actually get winter weather, shutting down access to your favorite course. While I can sort of understand that, NorCal drought has kept my courses open, but dry, during the winter for the past couple of years. We do need the rain though... Anyway, like many of you, I see the winter as a time to hone some golf skills in order to be ready for the next season. I'd like to say that the goal is to play better the next season, but we all know that just not having the swing completely disappear would be
  23. NOW LIVE ON BLOG SNEAK PEAK!! Coming Soon to the MyGolfSpy Blog A while back Adam, Tony and myself starting brainstorming new feature and/or series ideas for the blog. Today I'm bringing you a sneak photo peak of what's coming up, hopefully without giving away too much. So while you're ogling the pretty pictures we'll ask for your thoughts and feedback. What do you think we're up to? Any guesses on a concept or theme? What's your instant reaction to the brands displayed?
  24. Three New Mizuno Balls Announced for March 2015 Mizuno has revealed that its second wave of golf balls will land in Europe during Feb 2015. Accompanying the pro level MP-S and MP-X is Mizuno's new ‘dimple-cluster' concept ball, the JPX (RRP £35 per dozen). JPX Micro-Dimple cluster for delayed descent Working closely with the Fukuoka Institute of Technology, Mizuno's research team identified that the ‘descent' phase of ball flight was the least optimized by current dimple design. By adding a cluster of micro-dimples around each larger one, the collaboration found that de
  25. Just got 2 sleeves of Titleist Proto balls in the mail.... They feel like the ProV1 and ProV1x. Looking forward to trying these new balls out! Anyone else get some?
