Love the idea. Are you going to keep a living list on the first post that'll list the balls reviewed within the thread?

Oh why yes

 

Glad you like! I think we could build the ultimate ball guide for our members, by our members. The key will be sticking to the template and using the same naming conventions.

Neat idea MBP. You are absolutely correct about strict language parameters being crucial for this experiment. With so many equipment variables it's going to really difficult to identify reliable trends from subjective concepts like feel and perception of performance as they translate from one individual to the next. I'll be very interested to see what kind of participation and data comes out of the project.

Great idea, except for this- for frame of reference, could we include ratings of the current gamer ball? Of course, sticking to the template, plain and simple. I think this would be almost necessary to triangulate in on ball performance- to show differences between two balls, while also showing the plain uncorrupted take on the new ball.

Review your current gamer seperately, link to it with each new review and then do a comparison in your additional write ups?

Seems like extra steps when you could have 6 lines right there for easy reading...

Callaway Chrome Soft X

 

The Player

Current Gamer - Snell MTB

Handicap or Avg Score - 8

7 iron distance with current ball- 160y Carry

Trajectory - Mid

Putter- Sentio Sierra 101 M

 

The Ball

Callaway Chrome Soft X

 

Distance - Less

Trajectory - High

Spin - Suck Back

Feel - Crunchy

Durability - like new

Rating - Casual

 

Notes:

 

- I played the Chrome Soft X for 6 rounds and it showed very few marks

- Very easy to work. Produces more side spin than my current gamer.

- Driver Distance is equal to my current gamer with similar spin.

- Balls spins much more on long irons than my current gamer causing issues in the wind.

- Balls spins more around the greens than any ball I've tried.

- The feel is harder than my Snell, but not as hard as other X balls I've tried.

- Great ball for people looking for more spin around the greens.

Nice start but it is probably best to follow the template MBP has set up so anyone who comes to this thread can compare each review easily


Driver:   :callaway-small: Epic 10.5 set to 9.5 w/ Tour AD-DI 44.5

FW:   :cobra-small: F6 baffler set at 16º

We've added some explanations to the first post better explaining the template naming conventions etc. Here's a recap:

Distance
It's hard to tell if a ball is going exactly 2 yards or 6 or 10 yards less or further, but most will be able to say "same, better or less"

Trajectory - high, mid, low
Should be self explanatory

Spin
Suck back - high spin
Hop & stop - great spin
Release some -trends to run out a bit
Roll out - there's no coming back

Feel - firm, crunchy, soft, mushy
Should be self explanatory

Durability (1 round) - like new, scuffed but payable, rough shape
Should be self explanatory

Rating
Gamer - could replace or become part of current rotation
Casual - would play again if given or found
Avoid - do not like

Notes or writeup:
Use this section to tell us everything you thought about the ball, compare it to other balls and all other observations

I guess we're hoping people will write a more flushed out and detailed version of their gamer using the template and contributing to the thread, but please feel free to add this if you like.

I found a Wilson Staff Duo ball, and I bought a dozen of them after hitting the ball. I have six rounds in with this ball. The price is right at approximately $20 per dozen. The thing that I like about it at the 29 compression it has is that it feels like the old balata balls to me when I hit it.

 

The ball is longer off my driver and irons. From a full swing in the fairway I get hop and stop action on the green. Around the green it is definitely NOT a Pro V1....it does run out more.

 

The ball has great durability. For the price it is a good ball!
