Bridgestone B X and Srixon Z-star

I tried out Snell in June of 2016 with a dozen of their Original MTB.  I really liked the ball, but wasn't the biggest fan of the visible seem down the middle.  I shot well with it, but was still exploring other options and kept coming back to Bridgestone and Srixon.  I've dropped 3-4 strokes off my game since then and am curious about its performance comparatively.

I've never played a Snell ball but based on test results, the Snell seems to hold it's own against the Pro V1x.  Would love to validate that.

I’ve tried the Snell first generation Red ball but it was too “hard” feeling for my liking.

110 mph

Kirkland 3 piece 

I have played the MTB black for several rounds and been impressed with the distance and the green-side spin.  They have the look and feel of all the other top premium balls.  The only real noticeable difference was the branding.

      Titleist Introduces New TruFeel Golf Ball – The Softest-Feeling Titleist
      New Core and Aerodynamic Technologies Deliver More Long Game Distance, Enhance Best-in-Class Low Compression Performance
      FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (Sept. 27, 2019) – The new Titleist TruFeel golf ball is engineered to deliver longer distance and excellent control for golfers who rely on the consistent performance and quality of the softest-feeling Titleist.

      Now available in golf shops worldwide, Titleist TruFeel has been reimagined with a new TruTouch core and new TruFit aerodynamics for more distance with the driver and in the long game. A proprietary TruFlex cover provides ultra-soft feel and excellent control on shots into and around the green.

      For golfers who prefer a very soft compression feel, Titleist TruFeel improves upon the prior generation DT TruSoft as the best performing golf ball in its class, offering a superior combination of soft feel, longer distance and short game control.

      “We know from our extensive player testing that golfers who gravitate toward the softest-feeling golf balls are also clearly focused on performance,” said Michael Mahoney, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball Marketing. “In this category, we continue to see competitive products that sacrifice distance or short-game spin in order to gain a softer feel. TruFeel strikes the perfect balance of extremely soft feel and all-around performance. Our engineers have advanced TruFeel’s low compression technology to add speed and distance in the long game while preserving the feel that golfers tell us they love – and the playability on every shot that makes this ball a Titleist.”

      TruFeel is available in White and Optic Yellow, with a new Matte Red color option to be added in January 2020. The new TruFeel sidestamp has been designed to double as an alignment aid.

      Titleist TruFeel delivers best-in-class performance through the most advanced low compression design and manufacturing technologies:

      • New TruTouch Core: The fast, low compression TruTouch core generates low spin for long distance.

      • TruFlex Cover: The TruFlex cover is a proprietary Titleist formulation designed for very soft feel around the green and excellent greenside control.

      • New TruFit Aerodynamics: The new TruFit aerodynamics are designed with a symmetrically optimized pattern to enhance long game distance.

      Every TruFeel golf ball is made at Titleist Ball Plant 2 in North Dartmouth, Mass., to ensure the most consistent performance, quality and feel – from ball to ball and dozen to dozen.

      The TruFeel sidestamp features a new alignment aid, providing golfers the option for easy alignment without having to mark a line on the ball. The design was inspired by the most popular alignment aid available through the My Titleist customizer on Titleist.com since alignment options debuted in February 2018.

      TruFeel is now available in golf shops worldwide in both White and Optic Yellow, with a new Matte Red color option coming in January 2020. MAP $22.99.

      The results of the My Golf Ball ball study generated a lot of discussion and also questions as a result.  If one of those questions you had is, which model of Srixon ball will work best for me, the Z Star or the Z Star XV, then we may the answer for you.
      Four of our members were sent a dozen of each, and will be putting them in play on the course and putting green over the next 4  to 5 weeks to see which one works best for them.  They will report in regularly along the way with results form both.  So feel free to chime in with questions and read both their stage reviews to get their full thoughts.
