Recommended Posts

Current Primary Ball ProV1x & Kirkland

I have found a couple snells while I was "looking" for my ball. I have put them in play and I did like them they were durable and were good around the greens. After the MGS test I am even more interested in putting them in play. Thanks for the chance!

Titleist ProV
Used 2 dozen Snell MTB Black earlier this year that gf purchased through the end of year promotion for Xmas. I'm liking them. I seem to get comparable driving distance, but a more consistent spin with them in approach shots 160 - 85 yds in than I do with the ProV. After reading MGS reviews I'm interested in comparing this new iteration.

Snell MTB Black

I used the black when the red was still out and still use the black. I highly enjoy the black and have had great results, but I would like to test the X to see if it would be better for my game.

      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.
