Talk to me, Goose! What’s gonna be YOUR ball for 2019???


Recommended Posts

I'll start the year off with last years gamer... Callaway Chrome Soft Yellow.

Have been using yellow balls for a couple of years now and really like them. 

They're easier to find when I hit that one bad shot....🤣

They’re finally here - the Revs stash for 2019. Can’t wait to see if I can see these babies - I often don’t see white and even when I do I rarely see a drive finish. Sent from my iPhone using MyGo

Me after declaring I will play only American made golf balls then seeing the new snells drop!

I'll probably stick with the Wilson/Staff Duo Soft. Great ball for my game. As I get back into the swing of things (pun intended) I'll probably bring out the rest of my Q Star Tours, but the Duo is still my choice. 

Softfli for those rounds where everything is off and I know I'm leaving more than a few in the woods or the water 🤣

I'm going to be playing the Taylormade TP5x this season.

I tried one during one of our Sunday afternoon sessions on my friend's HD golf simulators and was blown away by it. I even got my first hole in one ever using a 4 iron from 202 yards! It felt great, it spun when it needed to and was long off the tee. I'm sold!

Well two years ago I did the buy 3 get 1 free titleist promotion with customization.

I really like having my own number and phrase on the ball, it does make it easier to identify in the Woods after all!

I’ll need to place another order this year as the bag is almost out of those, although I have plenty of early season balls I saved from off the beaten path last year.

I play Pro V1x and that won’t change this year. I got to try the prototypes as the end of the year and liked them.

I am looking forward to hopefully finding some of the new Callaway, taylormade, Bridgestone, and srixon balls around the course and will try them at some point but with any luck I won’t be buying more for another two years. [emoji16]

Now if the snow could just melt... [emoji466]️[emoji2147]

2018 V1x until I run out of the 3 boxes I bought around the holidays. I absolutely love how high this ball goes compared to the TourB XS, and I hold greens with them.

I'll probably try the 2019 V1x in yellow when they are available, and this year's TP5x

Stickin to my plan 🙂

Ha too funny, I was looking at stocking up on my golf gloves with that coupon.  6 Stasof's are coming out to 76.49.  $12.74 per glove is pretty good.

One should always take their balls seriously.

 

Depending on which Snell you'd be going with, there is a closeout on the MBT Red at the moment.

I plan on playing the Taylormade TP5.  I made the switch last year and I haven't looked back.  The ball seems to be more durable than the Prov's and doesn't overly spin.

I am fan of the Srixon Z Star XV.  If for some reason I run out of those and can't find any, I'd hit the TP5x.

...and not a single respondent has owned up to saying they'll use those sweet-looking Warrior balls they pimp every week on TV...Weird...😝

You know funny you mention it.. I have a sleeve of them.. They are not terrible, they are one of the worst balls i have ever played. Terrible would be an upgrade.. LOL

Think Top Flite, You know the one $10.99 a dozen, yeah Now go three or four steps lower.. 

NOT playing them again, I was worried I might cave in my driver..

I have always been a Srixon Z-Star XV player. I haven't replenished my stock in a couple years so still playing the 5th generation. I am contemplating giving the new generation a go, but the TP5 is really tempting to me right now 😏

I've noticed the last year or two the ProV1 doesn't seem to work as well for me on full shots. It is still without competition around the green though. Now I'm favoring the Q-Star Tour and Bridgestone Tour B XS.

Snell MTB Black for me. For the price, I don't think there's a better ball out there and it does everything I want it to when I'm not swinging like a jerk.

They’re finally here - the Revs stash for 2019. Can’t wait to see if I can see these babies - I often don’t see white and even when I do I rarely see a drive finish.

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.
