What golf ball do you play?

You Definitly had some with some nice juice on them. You couldn't see it but the wedge you hit on the par 3 16th from down below the green. It had some very nice spin on it. Coming in on thst angle out of the stuff you were hitting out if was impressive.

 

Also the tee shot you hit with my AP2 on 9 had some nice spin on it back toward the hole.

 

I may look into picking up a dozen.

Well well. I guess I just needed the view from the gallery. It did have really nice stopping power on the iron shots and usually finished close to its pitch mark with the hybrid so maybe I'm underselling the spin.

 

 

 

The more I'm playing the Cally Chrome Soft the better I like them. Don't know why I took so long to give them a try.

These are next up for me. I really enjoy the Hex Chrome balls I still have so I'm hoping the Chrome Softs perform even better.

On 2 holes this morning I could have sworn I was short but when got to the green was pin high. The Chrome Soft is really cooking for me. Yesterday ran it back to back against AVX, no comparison Chrome Soft is my new “best friend”.

Started trying out the OnCore Elixr and they are pretty good it was tough to judge in the hard fast course I played but I am looking forward to seeing how it performs on a course I am used to playing.

It could be that the fairways were soft, but I felt like I was losing distance with my woods. Will have to double check that when the courses dry up.

 

I came up short on some wedges but the rest of the irons maintained their "expected" distances.

I know as members of MGS, we try to avoid All the hype. But i am really curious to see what Callaway has done with the 2018 ball, supposedly its the ball that changes the ball that changed the ball 🧐

Played the Vice Pro+ for the last part of the season and loved them. I purchased a bunch of the Titleist AVX to try them and see if they are comparable or not but the weather hasn't been the greatest here in Illinois to give them a true test. Maybe I will take some to Arizona next month when I head down there.

I played the Bridgestone B330 Rx for the majority of the year. When the leaves started falling and temperatures dropped, I switched to the Bridgestone E6 Soft.

Of course I have had to adjust my short game to account for less check spin but I can say I might possibly be enjoying the game more than usual.

Next on my list to try is the Wilson Duo's.

I'm gonna see if one of the high-vis colors are easier to spot both in the air and nestled down in the rough/woods.

I went back to the tour preferred x and it has been great. I toyed around with the pro v1 and x as well as the tour preferred, and gained carry and distance over each.

I'm a big srixon fan. They make some really good balls and have a ball to meet anyone's needs I find.

I've had a lot of success with the q star tour this year.

Hey, I too am a fan of Srixon balls, The Z star are really good and worth a try, Gave me a similar feel to Titleist Pro V1

I'm a ball ho just as much as I I'm with my clubs. With that being said I always end up with the Pro V1x in end of the season.

 

Srixon's are great balls if they had something in between the XV and regular Z.

 

Chrome soft is way too soft and I don't care for the X. Hopefully the new Chrome will be the ball that changes all balls.

 

TP5 and TP5x same as Srixon. The X is so long but doesn't hold the green.

 

Bridgestone I've never got along with, but I will give the new Tour B's a chance.

... 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 think there is a huge difference between hype and marketing. There is not an OEM of any kind that does not market their product from cars to refrigerators to golf clubs. Every ball/club and even tee's are longer and straighter. No OEM is gonna say "Our new driver isn't any longer or straighter in the real world, even though we gained .89 yds and a 1.3 yd tighter dispersion in testing, but it has new materials that sound and look better, is a little more forgiving depending on your miss, but will not be more than just a little better than last years model, an some will find zero increase in performance and a few actually had poorer performance compared to last years model." 

 

... I think most of us are big boys and girls and understand marketing is the backbone of Capitalism. We can read what is hype and what is genuine advancements. I played many, many balls that performed no better than the previous model but maybe scuffed a little less or spun a hair more around the green or had a slightly better feel. But if I ignored every new ball that came out, I would not have discovered the TP5x that did give me a performance boost. The right golfer may definitely find a performance boost with the new Callaway Chrome Soft and the only way to find out is try some, then hopefully post their experience and others can decide if the ball might be worth trying. We are equipment nuts. :wacko: I love to play last years Titleist ProV1x PRACTICE balls when I am working on something in a practice round. I usually find zero difference between it and the new Titleist but ya never know unless you try them. Of course many are completely happy with previous years balls that were played on all the tours with great success and they are much cheaper. Others like trying the new stuff and may or may not find a new ball is better for their game.

 

... When I was in Florida last month playing after a 6 week lay off, I lost 6 balls in one round playing an unfamiliar courses in 25+ mph winds. B;ind shots were brutal as were any shots hit poorly that would usually be in the rough just off the fairway but ended up in water or thick brush. The 2 guys I played with broke out a new dozen on the first tee and had to restock at the turn as they lost all 12 balls on the front 9. They had new ProV1's and picked up some cheap  ladies balls in the clubhouse. They would never have played in those conditions (me neither) if we were not on vacation and hadn't already booked the round. Having new expensive TP5x would have been throwing money away and I played my ProV1x PRACTICE balls which worked as well as any ball in those extreme conditions.

 

* edit: I do enjoy MGS reviews and think they are valuable for every golfer. It is just the "anti hype" I object to.

Well said - if you're the type of person not to get hyped about a new product, you probably wouldn't have found your way to MGS in the first place. I'd demo every conforming club/ball in the world if I could, new stuff is always fun!

 

There's no doubt in my mind that I will try the 2018 Chromesoft. I hit some of the longest total drives with that ball last year, but I was sucking them off greens with my wedges, and ultimately decided that I just couldn't control the ball enough to game them. I'm not a high spin player by any means, but somehow I was pitching shots pin high and then watching them come back 20 feet with the Chromesoft. Didn't have a chance to try the X because right now I'm loving the Tour B XS - big thanks to MGS and Bridgestone for the sample packs :) I already ordered another dozen XS. On rough days like you described during your Florida trip, I'm playing Vice Pros, and also in practice rounds.

I'm still happy with current ball Chrome Soft & Soft X. They seemed to give me the best distance and feel. Doesn't mean I won't fall in love with another ball this Spring.

With the colder temps, I am gaming the Wilson Duo. The lower compression really helps.

I play the Cut Grey ball. I purchased a sleeve after hearing about them on a podcast and I'm really happy with them. They really are similar to the big boys in terms of performance, I can get 2 dozen for the price of less than 1 of the big boys boxes. They even offer trial sleeves, go see for yourself.
