I tried the MTB Red this past weekend and it doesn't feel any more "firm" than the black to me, but I only have one round with each so far. It does seem to spin more off of mid irons and wedges though. Fun video below, I didn't expect this to be on the green at all, but it was pin high and about 12 feet away. If you follow me on IG you already saw it lol B)

I have only tried the Red and right now do not have any Blacks for comparison. Hope to remedy that later.

Nah, the greens were aerated and didn't grow back in yet. It was like putting on a cheese grater, our balls were bouncing all over the place. Also, I suck.

On another note I played a Red today and was quite impressed.  Especially off the tee as that puppy will bark.

I played my entire round today with a RED and I was impressed to say the least.  I don't know what they put in that ball however it's hotter than a two dollar pistol!  :blink:  No doubt I'm becoming a fan and this could be my gamer ball.   I hit at least three drives today that were close to the 250 mark.  Paired with my new Ping G400 Max which by the way, I'm hitting better on the course than I did in the hitting bay at Club Champion, this combo is lethal! It gave me all the green side action I need and felt smooth as vanilla ice cream on hot apple pie.  :)  Great balls!

Weather forecast is for 70 degree temps this week.  The course may still  play like a wet carpet in a flood, but at least it will be a "warm" wet carpet.  Lots of testing with the Snell ball this week and my review will be forthcoming.  I look forward to adding to my review now that the sun is out.

I hope I don't get kicked out of the forum for making a comment in a Official Review Post. But here goes...

 

I've played the original MTB and really liked it. I can't decide which one to order this next time. Maybe both. Perhaps everyone's reviews will help. Just yesterday a guy (I'll call him idiot guy) playing in our game (who by the way fancies himself as a much better player than he is) found a Snell and threw it over the fence. I asked why he did that and he exclaimed it was some sort of crap ball. (it appeared to be fairly new to me) Idiot guy then went on to exclaim PV1 is the only ball that fits his game. LOL What an ignoramus. BTW - this blow-hard went on to shoot an 88 and got swept in all his bets for the day.

Agree, Guy is a Moron. If he knew what he had he would have cleaned it and put it in his bag.

When I'm done with Red Test I've got a couple of guys who want my “leftovers”.

I would imagine not UCONN huskies

Colleges should never have same mascot/name.

Good luck to both of them
