Tried the MTB when it came out and I did like them just didn't seem to be quite as easy to stop as the Pro V1.

Marc - Hoboken, NJ

Driver average 113mph

Titliest ProVI

Never played Snell. Been interested but feel ball choice needs to be consistent so I’ve just purchased large discounts of ProVIs, TP5x, and Bridgestone B330 (past three years).

Testers Wanted (10)

Fresh off it's stellar performance in the MyGolfSpy 2019 Golf Ball Buyers Guide (Read it Here) the newly released Snell MTB-X is taking the golf ball world by storm.  Within two days of the study the ball was sold out on Snell's website. So what's all the fuss about, can a $32 (Less if you buy in quantity) ball  really perform as well as some of the "Big Boy" balls?  Well that's what we want you to determine for yourself.  

Ten members will be selected to receive, test and keep a dozen Snell MTB-X balls (your choice of White or Yellow) then report back on the forum your experience and thoughts of the ball 



The new 2019 Snell MTB-X is a 3-piece tour ball designed for lower driver spin, higher ball speeds, reducing “ballooning” with irons and providing excellent feel around the greens. 

How To Apply

Open to U.S. and Canada Residents

Important Steps Please Follow All Them Exactly

Scottsdale, AZ

116 MPH

Titleist Pro V1

Was given 2 sleeves of MTB-Black about 1 month ago and used them for a monday skins game in the wind.  They did NOT wobble in the wind, held the greens, and gave me plenty of distance of the tee.

Dear :Snell:


I would love to test the Snell MTB-X golf balls.  I have over 30 years experience playing and a current handicap of 6.

I've played a wide range of golf ball brands including a few Snells. 

My current favorites are Titleist Pro-v1, Taylormade MP-5, and Callaway Chromesoft. However, I use more inexpensive balls in the winter.


Thank you for the opportunity! ⛳

Phoenix Az

Swing Speed - 112mph driver/92mph 6 iron

Current Ball - Been trying out various balls this year and have really enjoyed playing the TP5x and the Srixon Z Star XV (previously I played Pro V1x and was one of those play what I find guys).  The XV has seemed to be the longest ball I have played with, but the TP5x has been a straighter ball for me with really good feel.  I played the Vice Pro Plus this year, but it was consistently shorter.  However, it did feel pretty good off irons.  I tried Bridgestone Tour Bx based on your study, but for some reason I couldn't hit it well at all.  It sprayed all over, and had no feel for me around greens (switched mid round back to TP5x and instantly straightened out my ball flight...Note is was a windy day)

Snell Experience - Currently none, but Fedex arrives today with some MTB-X.  Going to throw it in for my round at Phx CC on Sunday.

      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.
