I managed to dunk it in a drainage ditch, bounc it off 3 trees, a cart path, and an outhouse. emoji848.png one of those was on purpose, I’ll let you decide. emoji16.png

Did an entire round vs the BStone and PV1x. Going out tomorrow for a full round test.

Anything specific you’re looking for?

Now that you mention it, I'm looking for the video of you hitting the outhouse and the reaction of the person inside! 🤣

I mentioned in the Z-Star thread that I'm looking at switching golf balls.  I'm not getting a lot of spin off my Z-Star on my approach shots.  They have a tendency to roll out to much for my taste.  Just had an iron fitting and they said my irons should be producing more than enough spin, so it has to be the ball.  This is one of the balls that I'm considering as a replacement.

Luckily no one was in it. My dad and I always see who can snipe it...

What ball are you using?

When you guys are doing your tests for these golf balls, are you planning on working from the putting green back?  Are there an specific tests that you guys have planned for on the course?


So far my testing has just been thru general observations while playing. I have access to a short game area where I’ll do my best to compare a few balls against the Snell.

Specific on course tests will be more GPS data comparisons to my normal gamer and the good old gut test. I have completed the salt water test to check the balance of the balls and played 5.5 rounds with the MTB-X and have formed a pretty strong opinion of the ball.

My testing so far has been on course, usually playing two balls. Last week it was against the Snell Get Sum. I will match it with something else next week. My local range has a short game area, so I will try some in depth testing there if I can.

I started my testing on a three hole practice loop that has two par 4 and a par 3. I tested them against the Pro V1x, TP5 Pix, TP5x, Callaway CS, and CSX. My short game is the best part of my game and I practice that the most. So I did a lot of 70 yards and in testing.

Today I worked on short game and played the MTBx along side the KSig 3 piece and Callaway Chromesoft Truvis.

Played 18 today, mostly alternating the X and the Black.  I'm definitely developing an opinion on the differences (or similarities).  I shot a nice 76. (73.1, 136).

That's a little bit of our job, as reviewers, to keep you wanting more.  In my case, I have out of town work for the next 3 weeks or so,  so I can only post some snippets from random weekends rounds until I can get home and really get some data.

Sorry for being slightly delayed, my stage 1 is up. Honestly not too much to say about the MTB-X yet, but I can definitely tell a different feel off of the club from my chromesoft-x. Definitely firmer.

Where are the pics, on your computer or your phone? I sometimes find that loading from my phone is a bit easier through the app, but that's personal preference! 

From your computer, you can just drag the photos into the composing window and it should insert them right where your cursor is.

Well, if someone WAS in it, it probably would of helped things come out a heck of a lot quicker😁😂🤣

Ok my unreasonably long stage 1 is updated! Had a chance to play a round with the MTB-X and Chrome soft this weekend. Definite differences between the two with regards to feel. The Snell feels so solid that going from that the Chrome Soft makes the CS feel mushy almost. One notable shot was tight drive that I didn't feel I hit particularly well and still wound up at my usual 280 distance that the CS would get on a solid hit. Can't say I noticed a significant difference in spin characteristics between the two based on this round, but I think some work on the Trackman will help quantify that. 

Also can't wait to see how quickly Snell turns around orders and shipping since I am DEFINITELY going to need another box in order to a thorough review without running out😑

I put it in my stage 1 but I'm going to try to do a 2 ball round some empty afternoon. Haven't decided if I'll play it as a best ball or play each individually

Testing suggestions, if you have ideas feel free.  I've been working primarily on the 100 yards and in type shots.  I like to see how they respond around the green, that's where It's important that i keep it close

Since my course doesn't have an extensive practice area. I will be doing most of my testing on course. My plan, which I will post in my Staging area, is to play 4 holes on my course. Using 3  golf balls plus the Snell. Putting and chipping will be on these 4 holes but also around the courses putting green. I have started the course playing part of my testing, and will have updates soon.

I've had similar feelings about the feel of the MTB. I thought I liked the chromesoft feel, but now I'm not so sure.
