Callaway Tour IX for the moment -will probably move to the I(s) when the time comes.

Not being a Titleist fan I never thought I would be paying for a premium brand ball ($40+), but the Callaway has been so darned good for me that I made my wallet squeak and have pulled out the dinero.


I have gotten so damned use to watching my wedges, chips stopping within a reasonable distance from the pin that anything else just takes from my confidence.


Quick aside - a few years back I was playing a ball that cost some $$$ and had received great reviews - I played a shot from the rough that I was hoping would run out by the pin.

The ball tracked perfectly toward the pin but I saw that it had a bit too much forward spin - I started to yell at it - " slow down, thats why I spent so much money in you :lol:

Callaway iX or iS if I'm buying them, but I'm ok with about any 3 piece urethane cover ball when I find them! Looking forward to trying the TM Pentas, our clubhouse doesn't carry them, and I'd like to try as sleeve before buying a dozen.

The last 4 dozen bought and played:


:srixon-small: Soft-Feel (My 2nd favorite ball)

:srixon-small: AD333 (Good ball, but the soft and penta have spoiled me)

Noodle Long and Soft (Very good ball and cheap)

:) Penta (My favorite, but damn it's expensive)


I need to try the Gamer V2 after reading a lot of the posts on here. They sound like they are worthy ball.

Or lose more balls...

Tough to do when they are yellow glowing goodness.

WOW! Surprised not to see Bridgestone anywhere in the first 19 comments.

Well, for me it is the Bridgestone B330 RX, or if I run out, the B330 Tour is good by me. The RX is supposedly not the biggest spinning ball, but I played a scramble, a few weeks ago and was backing them up on the greens, while swinging 1987 vintage TaylorMade TD Blades.

I'll take Bridgestone any day of the week.
