I just don't see how's it going would be possible to get statistically relevant data to do a test worthy of the MGS seal. Just way too many variables

In my Sun Mountain 2017 3.5LS

The thing I'd most like to learn about choosing golf balls is how different balls actually affect your game, based on specific knowledge of your game.

For example, if I know I swing my driver 104mph on average, how does a ball that is claimed to be for under 105mph swings affect my game Vs. a ball that is claimed to be for over 105mph.

Is swing speed actually the best measurement for choosing a ball, or is there too many variables and that's simply the best constant?

I think I'd actually rather see a test of how balls react to miss hits. Which ones are able to minimize swing errors (if that's at all possible)

How about refurbished v straight from the box. Lost golf ball and websites similar offer the best economics of premiums however a head to head would really make a statement

+1 would love to see this type of study. Most of my balls are refurbished for cost and I have always felt there's no difference whatsoever.

I am a self professed ball snob! I wont play refurbished or second hand balls and my bag will always be full of one model which currently is the Chrome Soft Truvis. I would be interested in seeing the balls tested and ranked according to their type and price point.

 

I think this may be a tremendous undertaking but since I'm not doing the work lets see what MGS can come up with!.

I knew there was someone else out there like me. Mixing models in the bag or on the course just feels so dirty.

Well I exclusively mix and match. If I hit one in the hazard, it's time to try another brand with better luck.

I like having the option of switching up characteristics if I need a different type of ball to match the game I brought to the course that day.

It seems that this is the one test that can "break the wheel"..

 

If a Snell my tour ball is further and lower spinning off the tee and has a higher spin rate around the green than a ProV1, who continues to buy ProV1?  

 

not saying that it is.   I don't know, because that data doesn't exist.  not in a public forum, anyways.
