According to their website, "The new Srixon Soft Feel Lady golf ball, in its 5th generation, features the same performance benefits as the (men's) Soft Feel (which is a 60 compression ball) with a slightly higher launch."
Personally, I was given a box of the Srixon Soft Feel ball - which is also a 2-piece ball like the Lady - and while I found it surprisingly soft feeling for a 2-piece ball, it seemed to perform fairly well over all. And while it did get beat up playing in the wind, like most lower compression balls, to me it seemed to perform admirably overall. Not quite what I'd keep in the bag as my regular gamer, but not bad at all.
End of the day it comes down to swing speed, and if you've got enough to justify using one of the harder compression men's ball. ... But, as has been said a million times, "somewhere about 75% of players are using the wrong ball."
Many of the online retailers are currently selling these at 10-bucks a dozen, all the srixon balls are going at big discounts, so now's the time to snag them up.
Interesting analysis RP! Good stuff there...kinda makes you go hmmmmmmm...
Though I'm sure there are those "buddies" out there that if they ever caught wind of what you were playing with, would absolutely tear their "Bro" apart if they found out they were playing a "ladies" ball. But whatever. If it works... screw them! Finding the right combo of gear is so important and here's another fine example of "if it works. USE IT!!!"
