TP5X for the last two years. Longer, lower spin, and light off the putter face. However, I recently bought Mizuno RBZ tours and itching to give them a try.

I recently got fitted for the TP5x and got a complimentary 2 ball sleeve. The first day out I noticed a small cut on the ball and the cover was separating from the ball. WTH?

I'd take a pic of it & blast it all over social media to TM.  They may give you more balls to try 🙂 

Defective batch?

Snell MTB-X because I tested the original MTB and have not looked at another brand since.

Currently playing Srixon Z-Star, based primarily on the MGS ball test results and one of the useful spreadsheets put together by someone here that would rank balls based on individual criteria/weighting. @MattF also gave me a bunch of MTB Blacks after he switched to the MTB-X, which I played quite a bit this summer, but, alas, they are all gone now. When it comes time to buy more, it'll be a tough choice between the Z-Star, MTB Black, and MTB-X.

Is the forum becoming obsessed with golf balls? LOL Seems like not a day goes by without a new or resurrected ball post/thread. Cutting balls in half is the thing these days. When are we going to begin sawing irons in half and start analyzing the metallurgy?  Who wants to go first and show the photos? 

I'd like to know what type of shoe laces (already discussed I know)  you use and do you get more distance or spin around the green with them. Do the number of belt loops on your pants/shorts increase or decrease putts per round? Wasn't there a golfer recently who wears his shirt backwards and instantly knocked 5 shots off his round. I'm told he's thinking of reversing his pants as this might get him to scratch. Sounds like stuff for an in-depth investigation and review if ax me.

TGIF everyone! 🏌️‍♂️

I currently am playing the Srixon Q Star, because I like to play a ball that not very many players play, so as to avoid someone hitting my ball, or me playing the wrong ball.  My currently batch are personalized so it would be pretty hard for someone else to hit it.  When I run out of this batch I have several dozen Srixon Z Star waiting to be abused, also personalized.

Once I am done with all of these Srixon I just brought home four dozen ProV1 from the pro shop of the local muni where I had $185 in credit with them for placing in a tournament recently.  I will mark the crap out of them so no one hits it by mistake, or I hit the wrong ball, or any other such nonsense as that.

Whenever I run through all of these balls and if I ever get low and need to actually buy more golf balls, I will be hitting the Snell MTB-X, if it's still available when the time comes.  I'm as cost conscious as anyone, so if I can save a few bucks on a premium ball, that's how I'll go.

With regards to @PlaidJacket  I can cut open a golf ball with a basic vice and saw pretty easily and without much effort.  Cutting into an iron wouldn't be something I'd be willing to attempt or even consider.  As to why all of the discussion on balls.  Well, I can't speak for anyone else, but I've been doing a lot of research from all of these ball tests that have recently been completed, so as to make the most intelligent decision on bringing more golf balls home for future play.  I ended up getting four dozen ProV1x, because that was the best available option at the pro shop of the local muni where I had all of the credit.  But if my own money is on the line, again, I'll be hitting Snell up for some MTB-X balls.

I'm looking for a new pair.

My preference leans toward the Srixon Z Star XV, and is the ball I'll play most of the time. They're long, consistent, and have great spin. Right now I've got some Bridgestone Tour B X in the bag that I found in my local pro shop at a good price. I'm pretty much a ball ho, having played Titleist, Snell, Wilson, Callaway, to name a few. I'm pretty budget conscious so a lot of times I'll pick up recycled balls just to try out different brands.

Nope. They are hard to play that way.

Im not surprised. The only con to the TP5x from my experience is durability. My first time gaming them, I discovered that after I overcooked a tee shot and on my second shot my ball clipped a small tree branch. I didnt notice the balls outter layer tore like nothing ive ever seen and ive hit my share of cart paths and tree trunks.

I'd contact them directly and give them a chance to respond before public shaming.

Mostly ProV1's and Callaway CS... but will soon be hitting and rolling some Maxfli's, so that could change.

Wilson Duo usuaully.  Sometimes I will play the Wilson 50 Elite when they are on sale though.  I like the soft feel and performance of the Duo.  I find that it gives me a nice high flight and has a good feel around the green.  It obviously wont spin like a Pro V but its not a rock either.

Im sure that I do lose a bit of distance with how soft it is but Im really more about feel and control than I am all-out distance anyways.

I started my wedge fitting at Club Champion yesterday using Srixon XV, which is what they had in the bay. I had pulled all three types of Titleist balls out of my bag to try during the fitting. As soon as I switched to Pro V1X, ball speed, smash, and carry all went up significantly over the XVs. I tried the new Exp 01 ball, and the Pro V, and discovered that the best ball for me was Pro V1X. I’ll be buying a BUNCH of these when the 4 for 3 sale hits this fall, or next spring!
The numbers were truly eye opening, and the fitter, who doesn’t believe the ball test MGS did, finally opened his eyes to the difference a ball makes.
It’s a shame a customer wakes-up a fitter!
