What golf ball do you play?


Recommended Posts

Playing the Vice Pro Plus, switched from the ProV1x... loved them so much that I became an ambassador for Vice Golf. If there are any other Vice fans out there send me a message, I have a promo code for a free sleeve with your order.

 

I also love the matte look of the Pro Soft, but my swing speed is a little much for them so they aren't the ball for me.

 

Cheers!

I wish I would have seen this a month ago when I ordered 5 dozen of the Vice Pros... The pro works really well for me. I almost went with the pro+ though.

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 also picked up a dozen Volvo's Vivids mid season last year. Hard as rocks and couldn't spin or stop them if I tried. Really disappointing. Grabbed a handful of Callaway Truvis Chrome Soft today at the checkout counter. See what I can do with those.

You should try the Volvik S4. I was pleasantly surprised by them. A good ball but it won't kick the Kirkland's or Vice's out of my bag.

I ordered the Vice variety pack last year. First off, what a great idea!  I was pleasantly surprised with all of them actually.  I like the Pro Soft and the matte finish is interesting but I actually found it slightly annoying at how scuffed and dirty they get.  The Vice Drive has an unbelievable sound.  Love the crack that thing makes.  In the end I ordered 5 dozen of the Vice Pro.  I played a variety of balls the past few years and honestly these were indistinguishable to me from a ProV, Chrome Soft or TP5 and at a price point that does not induce duck hooks because I am scared to lose them!  As a high single digit-12 Hcp I want performance at a price and Vice does that best. Based on this forum though I may have to order a couple sleeves of Snell to try out!

Played Callaway Chrome Soft last year. Due to Callaway's price hike I picked up the Australian made Forte SS3 Speed again after the break and don't know why I changed. Great ball. Ordered some SS2's and Tour Performance S to try also.

I tend to play softer compression 2 or 3 piece balls. I'm not too picky on brand but I do like to stick with one ball at a time. Right now I'm playing the Duo a lot, but have some Gamer Softs on deck.

 

Once I've got my swing going a month or so into the season, I'll switch over to the Q Star Tour or Project A.

I picked up some Titleist NXT logo overrun balls, will be starting the season with those.  After that I have a number of Callaway SR balls, but I didn't really like those the last time I tried them.  I will be very tempted to get some Snell balls once the NXTs are gone.

... You should take a look at these Urethane covered Maxfli UFi Soft balls. They have some very good deals from time to time.

Like right now at 2 dozen for $45 with free personalization through tomorrow. I've recently converted to Q Star Tour from the Maxfli U6 LC, but that's only because they don't make my version of it anymore. The Maxfli U line is super solid for a store owned brand. Hell, you can still get the much raved about Maxfli U4 from Golfworks for $15 a box.

 

EDIT: U4 now sold out, spoke a bit too soon.

I'm a big fan of their SoftFli balls. Excellent value, especially when they're 3/$30 at DSG.

I play Callaway ChromeSoft X balls . The new one is not that different from last years ball to me. Both new and old are great off the tee and spin like crazy around the greens. I used to play the regular chromesoft and its a good ball too. As my game got better , i just liked the feel of the firmer x ball. The ChromeSoft X is right in the middle of ProV1 and ProV1x to me. Its not to soft and not too firm , Its the GoldyLocks ball haha. Hit Em Good !!

Just lost my last AVX ball from the trial sleeve I was given. Loved the ball, basically it's a yellow ProV1 to me. But not in love with that price. Currently I am trying out the Titleist Tour Soft. My wife bought a golf outing in a silent auction and it came with a dozen. It's a good ball all the way to the green but there's just something I don't like about putting it.

 

So long story short, took a break from my yellow ChromeSofts to try out the AVX but going back to ChromeSofts. Unless Titleist starts making the ProV1 in yellow.

... Played my last 2 round with the Kirkland Signature 3 piece urethane ball. Greens were aerated and very shaggy and s-l-o-w so hard to tell how the ball would react on pitches and chips to a hard green in good condition. I will not play this ball because as much as I think it is silly to eschew ball for aesthetics IF it works for your game, I just can't get over the look of the glossy finish that reminds me of cheap surlyn covered distance balls. Not to mention I really like the KSig 4 piece that is only $17 a dozen, if I am not playing my reference ball the TP5x. 

... But the reason I posted this, is I have never seen a premium ball with a more durable cover. I usually play a ball for 1 round only and then it goes into my shag bag or I give them to friends. I have had a few balls that still look close to new after one round but usually it has some scuff marks from aggressive wedge play and of course an occasional tree, sprinkler head or other agents that mark the cover. But after 2 rounds the KSig 3 piece literally still looks new. So a urethane covered 3 piece ball that is almost indestructible is going to be a ball many will be interested in playing. Especially at $14 a dozen including shipping.

... I can't really comment on how it played because the conditions were so bad. Fairways were like light rough and greens were like fairways that had not been cut in few days AND those big aeration holes that really made the ball bounce around on any chip or putt.

Anyone played the OnCore Elixrs yet? I want to order some but I wanted to feel out the membership first and see if anyone had tried them.  I know there was an article on them earlier this year, just wanted a bit more info. Any insight is appreciated. Curious about this metal core..... :D
