Testers Announced Snell MTB-X Golf Balls

Recommended Posts

For those that didn’t get picked, I’ve got 3 or 4 of these left but it’s not the ball for me. I’ll send them to the first person that pm’s me with your name and where to send them. No charge.

First off thank you to My golf spy for the opportunity. This is my second time reviewing a product for them and I really enjoyed the first time. 

If anyone would like to see things in my review or want to me to look specifically at certain aspects of the ball during my review feel free to send me a PM and I will do my best to make sure I get those things in. 

Looking forward to it as I'm sure everyone else is.

Good selections.  Looking forward to reading the reviews.  On a side note, anyone ever tried the Happy Gilmore swing?  Maybe the next time I'm out on the course by myself, I'll give it a try... and try not to end my season. 😆

I'll echo all of this.  First, its an honor to be selected to do a review, I promise to give it my best effort.  My previous review was for the original Snell MTB, and if anyone can offer suggestions for improvement on that one, I'd really appreciate it.  Here's the link, for easy reference

As with @Brjpool, let us know if you have any specific  things you'd like us to look at.   I think we're all really anxious to get the balls, we all had our addresses in to @GolfSpy Stroker within 13 hours of his email to us.

In addition to the more common attributes you all will be weighing in on, I'm interested in durability.  How well does it resist scuff marks from impact with trees and the occasional cart path.  Seriously, some balls seem to scuff really easily as opposed to others.  Also, I like OEM's to provide a good alignment mark.  For the price of ball these days, I shouldn't have to make my own.  Have fun with the testing!

As I’m writing my stage one, trees and cart path were the first things that came to mind.

I agree some high end balls just damage easily.

Nothing like the old balata covers, where the grooves on a flush driver would leave marks.

Or rip the covers off. I had a bunch of these from the cart barn. They sure felt good though.

      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.

      TruFeel PERFORMANCE & TECHNOLOGY
      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.

      NEW SIDESSTAMP ALIGNMENT
      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.

      COLOR OPTIONS AND AVAILABILITY
      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.

      This is seriously fun thing by Volvik.   The following is a press release.
       
      ORLANDO, Florida (May 1, 2019) – Volvik (volvik.com), known the world over for its high performance golf balls featuring more than 23 vibrant color options, reports record-setting sales of the Marvel x Volvik collaboration of Captain America, Ironman and Spider Man Vivid 4-Ball Sets. Since the release of the widely anticipated Disney film Avengers: Endgame in U.S. theatres April 26, demand for the golf ball sets has been extraordinary. The film, setting box-office records, already is the highest-grossing film of the year and the 10th highest-grossing film of all time. Since the movie’s release Volvik has witnessed unprecedented demand from golfers, retailers and pro shops across the country for the Marvel special edition sets.
      “Since the premier of Avengers: Endgame, demand for the Captain America, Ironman and Spider Man Vivid 4-Ball Sets has exceeded our most aggressive forecasts,” said Don Shin, president of Volvik USA. “The response to the introduction of our Marvel Collaboration has been extremely robust.
       
      “We feel fortunate to have such a strong relationship with the Marvel team and look forward to continued success.”
       
      The Volvik Vivid high-performance three-piece oversized matte-finish golf ball is the product platform for the Marvel Collaboration of Captain America, Ironman and Spider Man. Each set comes in a custom-designed package with four Marvel decorated Vivid balls featuring Captain America, Ironman and Spider Man logos, as well as a magnetic hat clip and custom-tooled ball marker. Each four-ball set retails at $24.99. The sets can be purchased directly on Volvik.com or by calling 407-649-0013. Pro shops and retailers may order the sets from their local Volvik representatives.
       
      The limited-edition sets are the first step in a series of Volvik product introductions that will continue throughout 2019 and beyond.
       
      Marvel Worldwide Inc. is a publisher of American comic books and related media. In 2009, The Walt Disney Company acquired Marvel Entertainment, Marvel Worldwide’s parent company.
