Recommended Posts

SS 105-110

Taylormade TP5

I bought a tester pack of the MTB Red & Black a few months ago and loved both. I preferred the Black because it seemed to give me a bit more distance. I can't wait to try the MTB-X!!

105 mph 

Titleist Pro V1x

I played in the USGA Senior Am qualifier in 2017 in Colorado Springs with Mark ____, a Snell rep who was playing it that day. We talked about it and he gave me a sleeve to try. I don't recall which model. I didn't play the ball again until after the MGS report came out. Ordered 5 dozen of the MTB-X (3 white and 2 yellow) and have played the ball since I got them.

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*DO NOT quote this post in your application post!

No prior experience with Snell Balls. I don't typically enter testings but I've really been struggling with "ballooning" & higher ball flights lately so this test stuck out me. Fingers Crossed!

As a Snell MTB Black player for the past year, I would love to review the x. I didn’t get along well with the Red at all.

ProV1x

Played the first version, seemed to get less carry/overall distance off the driver. As long as balls putt and feel good chilling, this is a big differentiator for me.

      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.
