Doug / New Jersey

88mph @ 1.21 gigawatts

Pro V1x vs. Tour B X 

No experience with Snell.  I recently read that the person behind Snell formerly designed Pro V1(x) series balls; that piqued some interest.  Based on the MGS ball test, however, I decided the ProV1 X and Tour B x may be more consistent distance and spin for me. I'd still love to find out more though!

swing speed mid 90s; currently use Srixon and Bridgestone e6.

A friend gave me 2 Snell MTBs and I got good feedback.  Would like to test the balls on a longer term and provide complete evaluation.

I played a dozen of MTB Snell balls about 2-3 years ago...but the only time I've played them since was when I found a ball here or there. Really enjoyed the dozen that I had

Newport Beach, CA

Clubhead speed: 95-100

Currently playing: Snell MTB Red

I ordered the MTB red value pack a month or so before Snell announced the arrival of the MTB-X, which coincided with the discontinuation of the MTB Red I just ordered. I've actually enjoyed the red and it holds greens with that extra spin inside 150, but have noticed some extra spin on longer mis hits. It would be great to see the advances in the X that led to the death of, still a very good, Red.

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

*DO NOT quote this post in your application post!

Your First Name City of Residence 

Swing Speed

Current Primary Ball

Tell us of any previous experience with Snell Golf Balls...It's OK if you don"t have any.

Note: Participating and completing this testing, will not eliminate you from other testings to come in 2019

Testers will be selected sometime next week.

Was ProV1 - recently changed to Snell MTB-X (in the last month)

I sampled a Snell sleeve 2 years ago

Swing Speed- Depends on what I can get out of my old man back but generally hover around 105. Always got a little reserve to step on the gas when needed.

Current Primary Ball- Up for debate. Was Chromesoft X but plan on trying some new balls based on Most Wanted Golf Ball testing. Already bought a sleeve of Bridgestone BX.

I have played the Snell MTB before. Had good results but found I just liked the chromesoft a bit better. But I'm down to have my mind changed and I think the X with the high compression would be great to test. Thanks for your consideration.

      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.
