- My name is Tony Brown, from Wisconsin

Current hcp 3

- I play probably 50+ 18 hole rounds/summer

- I prefer a Prov1x for feel and distance but play Prov1 and Prov1x interchangably... however I refuse to pay $50/dozen new. I shop at lostgolfballs.com and buy them slightly used for less than half the cost of new.


I would love to try these out and post some reviews/opinions!

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:


“Snell's My Tour Ball is long off the tee, solid with irons and offers outstanding spin off the wedge. It's also among the best feeling balls we've ever encountered. Trajectory is consistent and durability is excellent…It's as if Dean Snell took the very best of his past work and rolled it all into a single ball.”


Sound enticing?  You bet it does! But that's just our opinion, and ultimately it's your opinion that really matters.  With that in mind, MyGolfSpy wants to give you the opportunity to try out a dozen of Snell's My Tour Ball and see for yourself.


We're looking for a dozen avid golfers to try a dozen My Tour Ball's each, and tell us what you think.  The My Tour Ball is a 3-piece tour level ball with a cast urethane cover.  It's designed for low driver spin, accuracy and spin control with irons and short game control and feel. 


“Most golf balls go the same distance off the tee. But they're much different from 100 yards and in. Choose the ball you prefer for feel, spin, launch and control.” – Dean Snell


So what do you say? Want to test out the hottest “underground” ball in golf?

      This is a question for anyone who has tested/reviewed a club here on the forum.   
      When you played your club or used whatever you were testing, at your home course or anywhere else for that matter, did any inquire about it and lead to them purchasing it to the best of your knowledge?
      This isn't to report back to any OEM's,  it's just something that I have been wondering about. After all, not only do the products we test get thorough reviews here, but probably just as important they get real world live trials in front of other golfers.
      As for 2019 test, I was part of the Ping Long Game testing---and bought G410 irons on my own outside of the testing, and will be providing my final recap in the next week. So I'll speak to that. 
      I know of two people at our club that purchased G410 FW's as a result of trying mine out on the range and course,  One of them pretty much ended up copying my bag,
      He bought G410 driver, Two Fairway woods, two hybrids, G410 irons, a Glide wedge and a Wolverwine Putter (for the record I have a Tyne 4) 
      So let's hear any of your thoughts or experiences. 
      Also if you weren't a tester but have bought something based on either a review here or on based on trying from somebody on the course, let us know as well.

      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

      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 or a leaver?

      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. During my tests, I will be taking two different models to the course and playing 9 holes with each in the same round, same day, and same conditions. In my posts, there won't be much in the way of technical data other than distance (measured via Shot Scope) but will rather be how I experienced the balls in terms of distance, spin, flight characteristics, performance and fell around the green, putting, quality, durability, and consistency. Once again, for my posts here, these are by no means a scientific test, but rather what I prefer, what I see, and how the balls perform for me. Therefore whatever performs for me might not translate to your game or your experiences with these products. I also invite everyone to post your own comparisons, head-to-heads, and reviews here as well!
      Now that that is out of the way, let the discussion begin!

      Testers Wanted (10)
      Fresh off it's stellar performance in the MyGolfSpy 2019 Golf Ball Buyers Guide (Read it Here) the newly released Snell MTB-X is taking the golf ball world by storm.  Within two days of the study the ball was sold out on Snell's website. So what's all the fuss about, can a $32 (Less if you buy in quantity) ball  really perform as well as some of the "Big Boy" balls?  Well that's what we want you to determine for yourself.  
      Ten members will be selected to receive, test and keep a dozen Snell MTB-X balls (your choice of White or Yellow) then report back on the forum your experience and thoughts of the ball 

      The new 2019 Snell MTB-X is a 3-piece tour ball designed for lower driver spin, higher ball speeds, reducing “ballooning” with irons and providing excellent feel around the greens. 
      How To Apply
      Open to U.S. and Canada Residents

      Tell us of any previous experience with Snell Golf Balls...It's OK if you don"t have any.
      Note: Participating and completing this testing, will not eliminate you from other testings to come in 2019
      Testers will be selected sometime next week. 
      Your attention please.... after much deliberation and analysis we have come up with our list of 10 lucky spies who will be giving these balls a thorough test.
