Favorite ball(s) ever


Recommended Posts

Tried the Cut in the back yard. It's cut, I'll use them for practice. But a bit too clicky / old rock slice sounding off the clubs, and offers no feel off the putter face. Not my cup of tea.

Supersoft is probably my favorite.  The deal and customization on Pro V1s got me in the door on them.  If Supersoft came in custom numbers I'd buy a truckload.

Really need to try those Wilson FG Tours. Heard a lot of good things about them. When I first started playing, I used to play the Wilson smart core balls, mainly because they weren't top flights which, even as a beginner, we're just too hard for me. Plus they sold the smart cores in two 12-packs for cheap.

Gotta be the Taylormade TP RED. Had great flight, just the right spin and you could flight it up or down. I bought a ton when they got discontinued

Early on, I loved to play balata balls, Titleist or Hogan.  Later on, I played the Spalding Tour Edition, one of the first good-performing solid balls.  I think Greg Norman played them, they spun like crazy.  I remember first time I played ProV1s, and I was in love.  Now, I'm stuck on the Snell MTB.


I never was much of a balata player. I hit too many thin shots if you know what I mean. But like Dave I did like and play the Tour Edition for a number of years.

Now I play all sorts of "tour" quality balls. They're all good.

My Sun Mountain bag currently includes:   TWGTLogo2.png.06c802075f4d211691d88895b3f34b75.png 771CSI 5i - PW and TWGTLogo2.png.06c802075f4d211691d88895b3f34b75.png PFC Micro Tour-c 52°, 56°, 60 wedges

Used to love the Callaway hex black when they were made. Taylormade penta was another one I really liked. Now I'm in a pretty steady diet of Bridgestone B330.

I always feel I have favorite golf balls depending on the club. Anyone else run into this?


My favorite driving ball of all time is the Taylormade PentaTP5, the distance and control I had are like any ball I try and find.


With irons I love the Snell or Nike RZN Black (2014) played the best ball-striking round of my life with that one. Played a #2 and it lasted all the way around TPC Scottsdale


My wedges didn't like the PentaTP5. Ate those up like a lawnmower (the only complaint about those)

I love the feel of the Bridestone B330 BEFORE the "dimple-in-dimple" design. Loved the feel off the wedge face.

Currently my favorite off the wedge is the 2015 Pro V1x. Has great grab greenside
