What golf ball do you play?


Recommended Posts

I currently play the Nike RZN Black ball. Stock piled them up while I could but I only play them when I'm playing real golf against some buddy's but mostly in tournaments. Other than that I got a bunch of Titleist practice golf balls I use. Looking to start testing the Srixon Z-Stars later this year as a replacement for my Nikes.

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

... Not challenging you, just using the above statement as a starting point. I know this is a mantra on MGS reviews but I have never bought into their anti hype which turns into MGS hype at times*. I

Really enjoyed the Srixon Z Star I played today.  Played it for 18 holes in windy conditions and I didn't notice any real difference off any clubs between the z star and tp5x.  The z star feels a little softer throughout the bag.  I have 4 dozen TP5x left, but I could see myself switching to the Z star if the price on the TP5x doesn't come down.

... Nice. I love the Star but I do get a little more distance off mid/long irons with the TP5x. And at my age that little extra distance is appreciated.

I found a TP5 on the course last night (thank you to whomever lost it) and played my last 4 holes with it, what a heck of a good ball. I'm not sure if it was a coincidence and I caught a couple of fliers, but I swear that ball seems like a rocket off the tee.

I picked up some Srixon Z Stars last month and liked them so I bagged Q Star Tours last week for $10/6 pack, or $20/dozen. Played a Z Star for first nine then switched to Q Star Tour for back nine. Man those Q Stars really fly off the driver yet hold the green. My Pro Shop just got in some more so I asked them to hold 2 dozen until I get back.

They (Q- Star Tours) really are a great ball for us old coots. They are perfect for the slower swing speeds. [emoji1303]🏌️⛳️

I have been playing the original Kirkland ball. I bought several dozen so playing them until they're all gone. They perform great and hold up well. I was playing Chrome Soft Truvis prior to the Kirkland.

I have been looking at moving to Vice when the time comes but undecided at this point.

I play the Wilson Duo Soft. They're long for me, and they feel great around the greens. For me, it performs better than, dare I say it, the Chrome Soft. I even have a few 300+ yard drives with it (some with a bit of cart path love, but 300 is 300, amirite?)

 

I recently started using the Duo Soft Optix in both orange and red. The matte finish looks like it's glowing on a sunny day. They stand out when you miss the fairway (more often than not for me as a 17 handicap).

 

I'd say it's a great ball for the money, but really, it's just a great ball.

I just started playing in March of this year after a 23 year layoff.  When I started I was not sure what ball I wanted to play, fit my game, and felt best.  I tried ProV1, ProV1x, Chrome Soft, TP5x, and Tour Soft.  I eventually settled on the AVX.  It seems to work best, fits my game, and feels right. I get good distance with it and I like them around the green.

I was given a sleeve of Q-Stars for my birthday last year. Threw them in the cart last week. They were OK for me, not WOW but pretty good. Gonna give them another go tomorrow as I didn't lose any.

Make sure it says "Tour" on the box because that is a difference in it and the regular Q-Star.

I recently received an order of 6 dozen Snell MTB Blacks after bouncing back and forth between ProV1/V1x and Vice Pro/Pro +. I've only got one round in with the Snell and it didn't go particularly well so I'll save judgement for now. Can't go wrong with either of the Vice models though. Aside from the matte finish that seems to discolor easily, I like them just as well as Titleist. The new AVX has piqued my interest though so I'll need to purchase a sleeve sometime and give those a whirl. The new Chromesofts with graphene are interesting - I've not tried them yet, but would certainly be interested in hearing about them. Outside of that, Cut golf balls have been getting some decent reviews on the forum, and I don't think I've heard to many people gaming the Nicklaus golf balls. There's plenty out there to choose from...

I play cheap balls off the tee and on dangerous par 3's, but then replace it with whatever softer ball I have in the bag for the rest of my shots on each hole. I'm sure thats against the rules, but it saves me loads of money and heartache.  :unsure:

 

I like Callaway Super Softs because they're cheap and I can't tell a difference between them and the Pro V's or Chrome Softs around the green, but I also am not good enough for it to matter yet I dont think....

If you play in tournaments then yes it's illegal but if not then who really cares? A buddy of mine always plays Pinnacle off the tee and then TP5x on every other shot. It doesn't bother me any.

Been playing a combination of Pro V1, Pro V1x and TP5. A few years ago I bought like 100 Pro V1/V1x's off ebay so still trying to use them up. Had a gift card to Dick's sporting goods earlier this year so bought a box of the TP5's. So far I've like them. Once I run out of everything, I will probably try a few other options out but so far no complaints with the TP5's.
