Recommend me a ball


Recommended Posts

Wilson FG Tour. Just was practicing again with them. The most predictable ball around the green for me. It's almost like I can tell it to check or roll on command. I think I can get over the marshmallowy feel on the irons for the around the green dominance. It out performed the V1 and the TP5x.


They say work from the green back?! Well Wilson is back for me. Hot damn!!

2017 Q Star Tour is a great ball for the price.

2015/2016 Srixon z/xv can be found at a good price

2015/2016 TaylorMade TP 4pc/5pc X at a good price

The Qstar Tour is a great ball and highly improved with the new cover.


Something different would be Cut Golf. At $25/ dozen they are a great ball and neat packaging. My son loves them and he's a top Jr player and really likes having something different than all the other teens.

I really like the Snell MTB, they can be really cheap if you don't mind buying 6 dozen at a time, my other go to ball is the Chrome Soft.

Chrome Softs can be found dirt cheap and is my go to ball. Been testing the Srixon Q Star Tour and that ball is SOLID, definitely worth a look.

Will also recommend the Q Star Tour balls. Try buying a sleeve of maybe your top three picks and go from there.

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.

Like TWar said B330S or the Chrome Soft.


I switched from the B330S to the chrome soft because I love the feel while putting and my approach shots seem to just stick greens.

Here's a sweet version of the Srixon ZstarXV. Found here at a local golf shop! Great ball! IMG_3236.JPGIMG_3238.JPGIMG_3237.JPG

Srixons first top grade balls were the "3 piece" with green writing. I couldnt even tell you the exact name but they were giving them to pro shops to get them in peoples hands. Some one gladly ended up with "several" sleeves  :ph34r: when the shop blew them off for good. When the last one was gone true saddness ensued. Still for me one of the best ball I have ever played and if the Q Star Tour is a close remake of that its a wallet holiday. Snell I like but go to the Z Star as it is there everywhere...

The Duo U along with the Q Star Tour are going to have to get hit as settling on a ball seems beyond my ability. Ordering 3 doz MTB's would solve all this really.

If you're already playing Vice I would stick with them. I love there Pro Plus, it fits my game well. Lots of spin on the wedges, but no loss of distance off the tee. Kirkland is a good ball, but your not likely to find them at the low price that makes them a great ball.

This may catch me some grief, but I think that the Top Flite Gamer Tour is a pretty solid ball and with Dick's normally running them out at 2 for 35 if you fall in love it's a hell of a value. I think some stores even sell sleeves of them for like $5 a sleeve.


I've used them in the past and enjoyed them, a bit firm but they will spin.

The Gamer Tour is actually a pretty darn good ball. If I remember correctly they are basically the Callaway hex Chrome without the Hex cover. Great deal, too. Amazing what we'll pay for a name and some newness. Correct me if I'm wrong, please.

I've been switching between the Taylormade TP5X and Srixon Z Star. Love both but don't see much difference in any of the shots.

Really wanna try the Vice brand but a bit skeptical still
