2018 Official Forum Member Review - Snell MTB Black & Red

Recommended Posts

That's what I'm finding as well

 

I'm actually starting to like the TP5x more than the Tour B XS  :o

 

The MTB Red is a great ball though. I'm going to order more once my supply of balls runs out. I still have a lot of balls stockpiled over the last 12 months since I started playing again. Once the supply has been thinned out, I'll probably make the #5witch to the TP5x and use the MTB Red for my after work practice rounds at the munis.

Gotta a bump this thread...

 

Heading out today & tomorrow for my final push on live testing. I hope to have my phase-2 ready very soon. Hit 'em hard Spies!

Thanks for the bump!

 

I am nearly done with my stage 2, at least with the information I currently have. I feel like I need more but have been out of town for work and won't be back until the 11th. I have a tee time on the 12th. I feel like another 18 will go a long ways to firm up some conclusions. If this is too much time, I can post what I have soon and amend later, but I assume everyone here would prefer more/better information rather than getting to press sooner.

Loved the MTB Red just about everywhere, but once the wind started blowing it became nearly ungameable for me.

 

The difference in the wind between the TP5x and the Snell MTB Red is staggering. Heck, I think the original MTB performed better in the wind than the MTB Red. Almost interested in trying the MTB black but instead I just ordered 3 dozen more tp5x

Damn but I'm thick sometimes...Got all excited to hit it today that I plumb forgot my MTB's and wound up playing my regular E6's and Titleist PV1's. No data on my Reds today unfortunately but good comparison day using this lot...Damn I suck! Tomorrow I'll load-up correctly! :huh:

Are you playing 2 different balls (Red vs ProV1) every hole and check results?

Interesting... Mine just shipped yesterday, so I must have gotten in before the rush, but I ordered before I knew of the discount code... :(

Well, put the Reds in Optic yellow into play yesterday. They feel a bit harder than the OG MTB to me but I really do like them. Seem to shrug off bark marks too, which is a bonus for me!

Interesting, because I felt the OG MTB was really hard feeling. Granted, I'm a slower swinger that doesn't do a good job compressing harder balls, so take that into consideration. The more I read about the experiences here, the more I think if I grab any Snell this year, it'll be the Blacks.

My Stage Two is up....

 

If I can offer a personal opinion that isn't already covered or answer any questions... Hit me up.

Great stuff.

 

You mention you don't play for spin around greens and you play for roll off all of your clubs. Sounds like your game would be better suited for for the MTB Black, no?

well I am going to give the Black a shot, but if they don't feel as good as the Red I will stay Red

Blacks feel better IMO, a little softer

I tried the black and the optic yellow red. I really prefer the red but the wind really kills it for me. Into the wind neither ball really performs

interesting. I haven't had a problem. But I do hit it medium height and can certainly flight the ball down when I need to. I don't know if there really is a magic bullet for wind. I'd be curious to see actual data on it though
