Recommend me a ball

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Looking to try a new ball. Have been playing the Vice Tour's the last few seasons. I'm a 12 handicap who prefers spin and feel over distance. Price matters — I usually can't stomach the $50 a dozen — but isn't most important.

 

I've thought about Bridgestone or Srixon... anything else I should consider?

Try the Wilson FG Tour or the DUO U.

I am a B330S guy, but I have played with Chrome Soft and that was a really good ball. Prob more in line with a ProV than the B330S.

 

Needless to say, I LOVE the B330S. I took huge advantage of the 3 for 2 deal that was just going on at retailers.

Kirkland if you can find them at a decent price.  It's a great ball, but if you're paying ebay prices then it loses appeal.  

 

The Snell MTB is my other go-to ball and absolutely love them.  Played the new Srixon Z-Star (or XV) and it performs great.

 

You may want to keep an eye on the Vice Pro/Pro Plus reviews once those start getting posted as well.

 

It's both a great thing to have choices, but can also be overwhelming when trying to pick.  But there are so many great tour level balls out there right now that don't require spending $50 a dozen.  Srixon z-stars, Wilson FG tour, Vice Pro/Pro plus, Snell MTB, Kirkland, Cut golf, Strok golf etc

 

But my first recommendation would be to try the Snell MTB.

Snell MTB is a good ball. TaylorMade Tour Preferred are always available at a discount and are good balls as well.  And of course, AAAAA used balls.

I usually play the Snell MTB, but I have used the new Srixon Q-Star Tour and it's really good for $30 a dozen.

👍 Q Star Tour. Great ball for the money. Does not spin quite as much a Z Star so that could matter during the dog days when everything is firm

There are SO many good balls available today. When i was coming up there was Titleist and.... uhh... yeah there was only one good ball available and the rest were some kind of Rockflite.

I've loved the Vice Pro, but being Canadian and paying the exchange, moving up to the Tour hasn't made sense for me.

 

Definitely going to give the B330s a shot, probably the Z-star too...

Couldn't agree more! I'm trying to find that new go-to ball. It could just end up being the Vice balls after all, but we'll see.

Nike RZN Black is a GREAT ball and should be super cheap if found anywhere... I've played every ball you can imagine and my best rounds ever are still with the RZN Black.

These are both fantastic balls! I've used the FG Tour balls in the past and loved them. I gave my Dad a few Wilson Duo Us to test, and he loves them!

Get yourself a dozen MG Tour C4 and a dozen Snell MTB. What the heck... go ahead and toss in some beloved PV1's. Then come back and tell us what you thought of these. See if your game is sensitive enough to tell if playing MG Tour C4 - ($2.16.ball) vs. Snell MTB ($2.67/ball) vs.Titleist PV1 ($4.00/ball) to see much if any difference. I'd wager that it's not. And probably not even if you're scratch. I'd further wager that any Pro Tour player could win using an MG or a Snell. Sure there are guys like us that will only play a certain expensive brand regardless of their skill level. All three of the above balls are excellent choices. For me... I'd probably go with the MG Tour. Second.. Snell. I can shoot a 75 or an 80 with any of these balls. Promise you it's not the ball that causes me to shoot either of those scores. In fact my lowest round of the season so far has been 3 over using an MG. Yesterday I shot 7 over (77) with a Kirkland. Surely it wasn't my swing? Or was it? Damn sure wasn't the ball.

Srixon Q Star Tour for me right now. Distance is about same as ProV1 for my 93 mph driver swing. Same distance on my irons between both balls. If I am not swinging well ... Bridgestone E6 - minimal side spin so I can find it.

I second this.  I've played the MG Tour C4 and it's  a good ball.  I'm currently playing the Snell MTB which I like very much.  I still have a dozen Kirkland Ksigs and if they were readily available, it would probably be my goto ball.  My wife plays Srixon Z-Stars and I like them too; great in optic yellow for cloudy days.  We found last year's Z-Stars in Portland for $26/dz and bought two boxes.

I just switched to Z Star and I really like it. You can find the 2015 version on Amazon for under $30.
