OnCore Elixar vs. Snell MTB Black


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I bought the Snell Black based on reviews. I haven't had a chance to play with them yet, but I've also read good things about the OnCore Elixar. They are similarly priced. Do you think it makes sense for me to pick up a dozen of the Elixar before I try the Snell? Or see if I like the Snell, and if I do, just buy more of those. I am really liking the idea of using only a direct to consumer ball now, or something not from the big companies, like an OnCore ball. Thanks!

I have been trying out the low end balls from both companies and they both work for me. The Snell Get Sum and On Core Avant.

 

It may be worth your while to try them both just to see which you prefer.

I am a happy Snell MTB user—haven't tried the new blacks yet but they are supposed to be the same. I would definitely go for it and order a dozen of each. Report back here with your thoughts in the Snell review thread.

 

I'm pretty stocked up on Snells at the moment and they perform for me, but will also buy a dozen OnCore next time when it is time to re-up just to check them out.

I have been playing the OnCore Elixar all year. It's a very good ball. I like how it feels and it's very durable. I would pick up a dozen and try them out
