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.
Our Four Testers Are:
@Reesedw Stage 1 Stage 2
@pulledabill Stage 1 Stage 2

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.

New AVX is really something else. Long off the tee, very soft and what you'd expect from a premium Titleist ball around the greens. Really interested to see where this ball will fall in line with the 1/1X. Possibly their new flagship??
Anyone had a chance to try it?
For now, its only available in Arizona, California and Florida as a test market.
Here's a look inside the ball at the 3-piece layer construction:
