Has no one here played Noodles?? I hate Noodles, even the name drives me nuts. I think my buddy plays them exclusively just to bother me.

I don't know how I didn't write this post first. Talk about deja vu...

My Callaway comment was meant to be tongue in cheek - it didn't come off the way that I wanted. Sometimes their advertising rubs me the wrong way.

 

“The ball that changed the ball.” Really? We have the stats, any of us old enough knows full well that the Pro VI has radically changed the game of golf to the point that it elevated mid pack players to winners over night. Everyone had to switch and ball OEMs had to catch up fast.

 

The chrome soft is a very good ball at a good price and their other offerings fit just fine, just like any other OEMs.

I loved the HX56s, but I have not been impressed with anything Callaway had put out since with respect to the other premium balls. Though on a cool day the superhot or whatever they call it seems to perform decently.

I've played noodles in the past when I first started out. Also played the top flight XLs too and whatever cheap balls were out there. As I became more aware of what I liked and didn't like, I moved on. Now I play ProV1s, Srixon Z*Stars and Bridgestone B330-RXs.

The only use for Noodles is to hit them at people you don't like - simple as that.

I play noodles in the Fall when I lose too many balls in the leaves and in the Spring until I get my swing back.

Pinnacle Golds. Man, what an awful feeling ball. Ok off the driver but off an iron or wedge no spin and just felt terrible.

 

For a new ball, I was really disappointed with the original Taylor Made Project A. For a premium urethane ball it didn't perform nearly as well as the MG C4 or Callaway Chromes for me.

Don't you like to beat your friends with a Noodle? Wait, that doesn't sound good. Noodles are good scramble balls for tee shots.

I'm a big fan of the Project A, and the original Chromesofts were a club shorter for me. Different strokes...

I submit Top Flite Magna as the worst golf ball. Oversized to reduce side spin...so your 80 yard slice is now reduced to 78 yards. 

 

However a Molitor would shatter your club face after 6 swings.

Nitros are pretty bad.  I have taken them out of my shag bag altogether.  I will hit just about everything else.

Top Flite XL (add your lotto number here).  These things are the golf equivalent of nails on a chalkboard for me.  I've contemplated picking up the stones out of a bunker and teeing them up over hitting an XL lotto number.  Noodles are the most disappointing though.  I keep trying to like them and seemingly never do.

 

Side note, the new TF Gamer isn't a bad ball.

I bought a sampler of all four Cut balls - red, white, grey and blue. I figure grey will be the one I am most interested in, but I started with the low end red.

 

They are awful - like rocks. Hopefully the white will at least be playable.

I'd nominate the entire Top Flite 3000 series. I bought into the hype of the Super Straight lost 3 of them and yeah it was like hitting a rock and never played them again. Not only did I lose 3 of them I definitely didn't lose them hitting them Super Straight 😠
