What soft ball do you prefer?

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I'm convinced that a soft golf ball as a senior helps my game.  I've used Callaway supersoft, Titlleist dt solo, Srixion soft, Wilson Duo, Wilson Duo Spin, and Bridgestone soft.  I find that this year the ball makers are introducing updated versions of their balls.  Curious to know anyones personal preference in soft golf balls.

In the winter months I'll use the duo. Think I'll try the Callaway ball next winter. The duo was just average for me. It felt good off of all clubs and gave me good control around the greens.

Good luck in your hunt.

The Duo U trial ball I got a few weeks ago was OK; a lot better than the Duo for me.  However, I used the Snell Get Sum ball most of the winter with an occasional Bridgestone Precept Lady in yellow for those cold gray days.  I think I heard that Snell may be coming out with a yellow Get Sum, so that will probably be my ball next fall when the temperature drops.  Since it hit 70 today, I am back playing the Snell My Tour Ball for the summer.

I skipped soft ball. I was a catcher, there was no rush quite like helping a pitcher through a sequence against a tough hitter or conversely trying to out think a pitcher in the late innings of a tight game..... Oh you mean for golf! :)

 

Sorry it's almost opening day and I got carried away. :) I'm not much on the soft balls that I've tried. To me they feel like marshmallows with a pit. When I lived up North I'd use the Lady Precept or the Nike Mojo in the Winter when I could play. I don't think you can go wrong with the precept.

 

Good luck

I played the Titleist DT Trusoft, Snell Get Sum, Callaway X2 Hot, and the Wilso Duo this Winter....... I found that the Get Sum performed as good as any "softer" ball.  I will be moving on to the Bridgestone B330RX this week and probably trying the Snell MTB later this Summer.

Snell golf balls seem to be highly recommended.  I'm going to have to check them out.

My favorite "soft" ball is the Chrome Soft. My favorites day in and day out are not classified as soft per se' but I love the MG Tour C4 and the Snell MTB. However, I seem to always gravitate back to the CS for some reason. Last week I went by Academy to see if they'd gotten any Duo-U in (they haven't) and bought a doz. CS. Like I needed another dozen golf balls.

I think you will like them.  Check out the forum discussion about golf balls if you haven't seen it yet:   http://forum.mygolfspy.com/topic/13666-quo-vadis-golf-ball/?hl=%2Bquo+%2Bvadis%3F

 

Dean Snell helped develop the patent on the ProV1 and other tour balls.  The Snell My Tour Ball is right up there in performance and less expensive.  The Get Sum is a nice ball; doesn't spin as much and works well for me when the temperature is low.

I've used both the Chrome soft and the Duo.  I seem to lose distance with both of them compared to Srixon Z & Q star, Titliest NXT and ProV1x.  I'm not a fast swinger (driver 95-97MPH) and I don't get the physics of a softer ball helping distance.

My two favorites are the Srixon Soft Feel and the Bridgestone Treo Soft which they do not make any more.

Did you see the new CS with truvis technology? They are Yellow and black.

No I haven't but I don't think they'd be for me. I do know a guy that plays the red and white one. He likes it.

The supersoft is great. I have been on a soft golf ball kick lately. I even blacked out the logos on various golf balls and have done some testing with them. They feel the best off the putter. They performed 3rd best on greenside wedges and on the course they are 10 yards further than any other ball. I also get pretty good full shot performance with them. I am a big fan of th eball for the price. If money were no option I would be playing the Duo U

Someone used the yellow and black ones in the par 3 contest at Augusta yesterday.
