I've been playing Srixon Z Star for years now. I've tried a few other Urethane balls, but keep coming back to the Z stars. I'm happy to play previous years models, as the difference is minimal and gre

Oops, he got me the cheapies, not Tour. I got him a sleeve of ProV1 for his birthday. Next year he gets Top Flight!    Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

Rick Shiels just got around to reviewing the project [a]. His findings accord with my experience, that it's a really good ball at a second-tier price: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLO2GfobOcQ

Saw this video. I really enjoy his videos. Finally played a round with the project As and the feel really good of my irons and wedges. Hard to tell off the tee but it was the most accurate I've ever been off the tee. I usually miss it right but I hit 85% of fairways dead center with them. Idk if it's the ball or some swing changes I've been doing. They spin really well on the greens as well. Stopped quick.

 

 

Irons: Standard length and Lie

Driver: 10.5 regular flex standard length

So, cleaned out the bag this weekend of the balls used in 2017, looking ahead to 2018 and my ball inventory is as follows. 

 

2 Dozen Maxfli U6-LC, with custom messaging "Is Ryan Bergman Even A Pro?" on the side

3 sleeves of Srixon Q-Star Tours

3 sleeves of Callaway Hex Chromes

1 sleeve of Wilson Duo Soft

1 sleeve of Top-Flite Gamer Tour

 

Also possibly in play but likely not because of personal reasons: 1 sleeve of Titleist Pro-v1 with my high school team logo on it, 1 sleeve of Maxfli U6-LC with custom messaging, 1 dozen Callaway SuperHot with 2015 Club Champion stamped on them.

 

May add some more sleeves for cheap if I can find them because one day that Maxfli stash is running out and I'll need a new ball.

 

BTW, if anyone wants any of those Hex Chromes, I'm willing to send them to you. Not my favorite ball and I'd be happy to move them to someone who may actually use them.

Proud Caddytek push cart owner here Tony, and those aren't all in my bag, that's what I have on my shelf at home to put into play starting in 2018.

 

I clear out my bag of all balls used in 2017 every January and add them to my grocery bag of balls. May donate them to the First Tee or sell them to my other golf playing friends to divy up.

Please do donate some to your local First Tee. If yours is anything like the one I volunteer at, we can never have enough balls. Especially if you leave them in the packaging (we can hand them out as prizes).

 

We also take loose, unpackaged and used balls. They go into a bucket, and the kids can take four at a time before going out on the course.

A buddy of mine is a ball Hawk and is constantly giving me his Pro V1s. He's convinced himself that he likes distance marshmallows. I only buy balls for tournaments. I really like the TP5, but I will play any urethane ball. I won some Project (a) balls and was impressed.

I played with a project (a) last time out and really liked it!  I might have to pick up a dozen and give it some serious looks.

You hit down on those guys with some speed, and they give you some serious spin!

I would not hesitate to game a Project (a). They're TM's hidden gem. If you could catch a sale on them, it would be even better.

I recently bought 3 dozen aaaaa used Bridgestone B330s off eBay for around $35. I can't understand why people buy new when you can basically buy new for 1/4 of new price. It's just a waiting game for the weather to get better so I can try these out.
