Leon, Houston TX

100mph Driver

Taylormade TP5x

Played Snell My Tour Ball (MTB) and Get Sum before.

The Get Sum is a funny ball, it felt great off the club face, decent distance and spin, low cost, but the ball speed just could not match other premium tour balls. 

The MTB is a nice tour caliber ball, great distance and tons of spin. Felt solid off the club face, performance is in line with  ProV1x. But a little bit easier to be stuffed for wedge plays. And seems to need some improvements to play better in the winds.

I am interested to try out the MTB-X and provide detailed in-depth feedback.

Durham, North Carolina

93 MPH Driver Speed

Titleist ProV1x

I ordered a trial pack last year of the MTB Red and MTB Black. I enjoyed the MTB Red and was disappointed when they discontinued the ball. After the reviews I have read from MyGolfSpy and other forums I am excited to try the MTB-X.

90-95 mph with driver

currently playing/losing the Mizuno RB tour

Got a sleeve of Snell MTB from a friend, played two rounds before losing all 3, which is a record.  Thought they were a good ball with good distance and spin. I’m not the greatest golfer, but I think I can feel the ball come off the club with good spin or flat.

Thornton, Colorado

107-110 high spin


I have only hit the soft, high launching ball that someone gave me.  Definitely didn't fit my high launch, high spin game.  Spin control is the big concern for me.

Knoxville, Th


Pro V1X

I played the version from 3 years ago and loved them. Performance was top notch with my only complaint being the durability of the cover.

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan 

100 mph

Pro V1X

I just purchased a box of MTB-X last week at my track and proceeded to birdie 2 of the first 4 holes, rattling off the flag stick on the second one!

This will be my ball for the foreseeable future. It's fantastic!

Your First Name City of Residence - Tom - Willow Grove, PA

Swing Speed - 101 Lefthand

Current Primary Ball - Snell MTB Black - I've been playing the Snell MTB Black since April 2018 exclusively.  Have another couple of dozen before I have to reorder.  Found the ball to be exceptional in keeping my ballflight from ballooning off the driver and provides nice feel around the greens.  I have recommended this ball to playing partners over the last year and firmly stand behind it as a good product, especially given the direct marketing price.  In addition to playing golf, I have hit the Snell MTB Black in my home Skytrak simulator and compared the ball to other balls indoors for ballflight, spin, consistency, distance and feel.  Have found it to be on par closest with the ProV with the exception of durability.  I've cracked a number of Snell balls over this time but only one Bridgestone.  Never a Titleist ironically and believe me I've tried.  Once the dimples are worn I will retire the ball from testing and that's happened well before a crack has appeared. Other than that, no complaints.  Based on the mygolfspy ball testing I was going to order the MTB-X ball but like you said it's been out of stock.

  Hello, I am Patrick and I live in Dublin, Virginia.

  I'm not sure of my exact swing speed, but I would guess it's north of 110 mph.  

I play with various brands of golf balls, usually Pro V1, Chrome Soft, Bridgestone B330, and MG.

I had the privilege to hit a Snell ball last yea,  after I was given one by a Snell representative at a local tournament.  I didnt get to play too many holes with the Snell ball since I hit it into the water 2 holes after I got it.  That being said, I would love a 2nd chance to give Snell golf balls a good try.

Thank you for your time.

      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.
