Just spent time reading all of the tweets Tony posted related to the ball testing...my jaw is still glued to my desk, especially from the last chart posted--yards offline 25+.  I cannot wait to read the report.  Thanks for bringing my attention to these tweets @txgolfjunkie

I've been following these posts as well. Really informative and really interesting. I'm also happy that MGS took the time to make sure they're getting this right because if the correlations Tony is teasing are true, this is gonna blow the lid off of everything.

I saw all the tweets and I'm really looking forward to checking out all the findings. The distance disparity is wild, and while I had already decided to stick to the MTB Black, the tweets I saw solidified my decision to stick with one ball!

I can't wait for this report. From what Tony has posted it is going to turn the ball industry on its head.

Yep, can't wait to see these results.  I'm hoping the big pink dot on the bottom of the graph is my gamer so I have an excuse.  That being said this could potentially help many more people than any other testing that has been done.

It'll be very interesting to see the final numbers.  I remember reading an article (I think maybe on the Wilson Duo) where the designers were discussing the idea that everyone's premium balls perform basically the same because of some of the restrictions they have to meet to get approval.  Maybe not...?

I haven’t been following the tweets but will.

I have repeatedly played the mantra of pick one ball, any ball and play it and it only during the season. While I still believe all balls are good as in consistent, I also believe all balls are different. It looks like I’m going to be proven right for once. :)

Also, I saw on Twitter everyone remarking on that small blue circle at the further mark and say, that's the ball. Well, look back a couple yards back at a reddish dot just right of center on the image... that's where my eyes went to.

I don't know if many of you follow Tony (@GolfSpyT) on twitter but he's been blowing it up with the golf ball test. Needless to say, this test is going to really help in golf ball selection and prove that there are some SIGNIFICANT differences in golf balls out there. I, for one, find this test more useful for my game than the most wanted putter or driver.
Look at the iron test...this is average carry and dispersion (sorry, I'm trying to figure out how to embed his charts on twitter):

You have one golf ball carrying 189...and another 203.5!! 14 yard difference...that's an entire club! 
In other tweets, he mentions:
  • The fastest golf ball off the driver (115mph swing speed) is the Snell MTB X.
  • There's also a 5.5mph difference in golf balls among fast driver speeds (115mph)...that's a huge difference in carry yardage given all the other launch variables are consistent. 
  • Some of the golf balls are flying 40yds offline off the driver...and this is a robot swinging the club. Even with a perfect swing, your golf ball could cause you to miss the fairway...tell me if that doesn't mess with your head. 
Also, he's mentioned a lot about playing just one ball and sticking to it. While I never really thought about it, after seeing the charts he's posted, I'm ready to make a 6 dozen purchase of whatever ball fits my game and play it only from here on out. Case in point: I used to switch from TP5X in the spring/summer/fall months to a Snell MTB Black in the winter time but then when I would switch back to the TP5X, all my approach shots were flying the green. All my carry yardages, especially on the irons, had to be retrained. 
Thanks MGS...and thanks Tony for posting these snippets on twitter. 
 

I bet that small blue circle at the top of the chart is the MTB-X!

Is this just available on Twitter? It's one of many social media sites I'm not on. Is there a blog version or is that coming? I'm VERY interested in the details.

This is going to be pretty incredible when it comes out. Can't wait to see where my gamer sits and to see what changes if any I should be making. I'm.guessing there will be some big suprises and a lot of ppl changing golf balls following the results.

Seeing these tweets and charts, it made me think of there have been times when I’ve played that a ball keeps going offline. I joke in my head by saying that the ball just WANTS to be lost. Well, seems as if there’s something to this!! Some DO want to be lost because they’re out-of-round!
