I need a new ball

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I am pretty sure this topic has been covered more than a few times, but

 

I just ran out of my Titleist NXTs. I am getting so tired of spending $35-$40 on a dozen balls. Any suggestions for a decent lower spin ball that won't break the bank?

I don't need ProV quality. But not Noodle or Mojo either.

I've played a bunch of the Vice balls. Really pleased with the performance & price point. Many here are going to recommend Snell as well. (poetry...)

I think the e6 is a good ball or the Snell black. Is the q star low spin? I think Srixon is the most durable on the market.

The Wilson Staff Duo Soft is a pretty sweet ball for $19.99. Great feel off the driver. Super low compression. I've really enjoyed them. They also have cool color choices if your into that.

Ah man, you sure you don't want any Mojos?

I got a full box and another half box -that's over 30 balls! 🤣

I'd simply recommend going to your local retailer.  I am fortunate to be near a PGA superstore ...... 

Get on the monitor and hit several different balls. At least 5 for good reference.

 

I used recommendations found here and elsewhere but also paid a visit to the major ball manufacturers websites.  I used their online fitting for reference prior. The recommendations were not 100% accurate but got me in the ballpark.

 

My experience necessitated a switch from ProV1x to Bridgestone 330S.  The comparison in distance along with spin rates, which translated to easier distances and better dispersion were jaw-dropping.

 

AS FOR THE PRICE .....

Anyone not at least open to buying refurbished balls is throwing away money.

I find those on Amazon for $10-15/dozen depending on current pricing at all times.

It is essentially like using a ball after your first or second hole with it.  With prettier paint.

They have most brands.

I'm a Snell ho through and through. Get the MTB Black and congratulate yourself on making the right decision.

Q Star or Q Star Tour should fit that bill. An underrated ball would be the Top Flite Gamer, although I'd avoid the Gamer Urethane as I have found it at least a club shorter (and I'm not alone in that).

I play the TP5X but about to convert to Snell.

 

Snell MTB Black is a great ball and they're sold on Amazon with Prime shipping...which is nice. $33 shipped to your door in two days. Not bad. 

 

I've played the Wilson Duo for the summer and everything is great with the ball until I get into the hybrid, fairway wood and driver. The ball is not designed for high swing speeds and the yardage really suffers. 

 

TXG actually did a video on budget golf balls vs the Pro V1...it is really eye opening.

 

Vice, Snell, Oncor, etc all make a great ball. It just depends on what you're looking for.

... These are just a no brainer if you have Costco access. Kirkland-Signature-3-piece-Urethane-Cover Performance + are $28.98 for 2 dozen and that includes the $4.99 shipping charge. Just a great all around ball for $14.50 a dozen shipped. There is a limit of 4 dozen at a time.

I agree. I love Wilson Duo. I play the old spin version. But it only spins something like 7% more than the regular Duo. I just found a good deal on them.

Aren't you glad that you brought this question to an internet forum, HighFade?

As many have said the snell ball is the best value for me. I have switched to the mtb-red which is a four piece ball, but others may prefer the slightly lower spinning mtb-black. With the price, performance and durability you really cant go wrong! I made the switch for the same reasons as you....tired of the $40+ price tag!

I was just going to add this exact recommendation. I also wanted to mention the MG Tour C4. $19.99 - dozen.

Snell is "DOC" (direct to consumer) so you won't see them at a brick-n-mortar store.

 

I was one of the lucky evaluators MGS selected to test their MTB Reds earlier this year (link attached), and I'm a big fan of Snell now for sure.

 

https://forum.mygolfspy.com/topic/22972-official-forum-member-review-snell-mtb-black-red/

 

Though ultimately the Reds were not the ball for me, the testing opened my eyes to other types of balls' performance characteristics like PV1 and the Blacks that I would not have strayed from normally since I was fairly happy with the Bridgestone E6 Softs I was using. Tried some MTB Blacks and really never looked back. Got 6-doz delivered for around $27 per, free shipping and no tax!. High quality, very durable and great performance overall. Consider giving their trial pack a try.
