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

I can vouch for the Vice Pro+. Friend started using them a couple of years ago. We both found them to be the longest balls we had hit with enough bite on the greens. As someone else mentioned, however, they do seem to scuff easily. Still a great ball for the price.

This year I couldn't pass up a deal for NXT Tours for $9.00 per dozen and got 5 dozen. I scrolled through this topic and only found a couple of references to them. I don't have a whole lot of experience with them; I got them because I'm high-spin and they are supposed to take a little off when swinging the long clubs. Anyone out there like these things or do they roll out too much on the greens?

I received a box of Wilson/Staff 50 at work last year for a birthday gift, and played them... Not Bad!  However, I found that Strata BOOM! (Callaway product) and Strata SMASH (Callaway product) are equally long balls and a bit cheaper.  

How about a list of WORST GOLF BALLS EVER??

I would have to place NITRO brand at the top of the list.  Wow... feels like I'm hitting rocks!

Love trying new equipment and staying informed of current trends and developments.  Over the years, I have owned Callaway, Ping, Mizuno, Srixon, Cobra, Adams, Orlimar, Snake Eyes, Cleveland, Wilson/Staff, Lynx, Ram, and Dunlop.  Belong to a golf league at my workplace, am an alternate for another golf league, and spend my free time golfing with my wife, (who is also on a golf league!), or with other friends.

I've got 3 sleeves of RZN Plats if you wanna do a swap :).

 

I like trying new stuff and haven't played any of the Srixon Q-Star Tour, Z, or ZXV! So here's my offer: I'll send you 3 sleeves and some Hawaiian snacks if you want to send me 3 sleeves of Srixons that you game :)

I once had a grizzled old golfer tell me that if you're playing bogey golf or worse, play whatever ball you find.

My brother shot his lowest score ever, 83, using Nitro balls (orange!) that he picked up for $4.99/dozen at KMart.

Previous week it was a 97 with Pro V's that he got as a gift.

I think the old range rat knew what he was talking about

My son really likes those cheap Nitro balls. He especially likes the new matte finish ones. He hits those as well as he hits anything else.

So I usually play Callaway Chrome soft and soft x, have so for the last year. I bought two sleeves of the Srixon Z Star XV today and played a full round with those. All I can say is WOW. I was shocked how they performed. Checked up way better then the chrome soft, seemed to pop off my driver better. I was leaving chips 10 short because of how well they were checking on the greens. Will definitely be buying some more once I run out of Chrome Softs.

Switching back to the Pro V1 for this year. I've tried a bunch of different brands, nothing touched the performance for me.

I thought you really liked the Wilson ball?

I did. But I guess the ones I had from last year were the 2015 model. I thought they were the new ones. I don't care for the 2017/2018 model one bit.

 

Hard to find that 2015 model anymore.

Played the new Chrome Soft X again yesterday for a full 9 holes. Again, I found it to be unremarkable... Nothing longer, straighter, or “spinnier” about it compared to OnCore Elixr or TP5X. I'll keep putting it into play, but it's not better than what I've played the last year.

I tried those Cuts... like scotch tape covered rocks.

Which Cuts did you try? I liked the Blue.

Yeah I played 9 with it on Wednesday and liked it more than the regular CS. It's a shame they raised their price because of .4% graphene, the $5 savings per dozen over other brands was a huge plus for me. I think the tour b xs is still better, and the 2 for $70 sale makes it a great deal too.
