Last year I decided to try a variety of different balls to see which ones I like. As a result, I have a pretty big stash of different balls that I am working through still, and I probably won't run out this year. So from round to round I switch up which ball I will use.

My current favorite is the OnCore Avant55 followed by the Srixon Soft Feel, generally in yellow or green. Once I run out of the current supply I will probably stick to those two and maybe the Srixon Q Star if I can get a deal on those.

I tend to bounce around between Wilson/Staff, Maxfli, Topflite, and Srixon. Usually the same type ball 2 or 3 piece surlyn covered that's below the 90 compression line. I've steered away from Bridgestone since they revamped the e6 a few years back and ruined it. Interestingly, I don't play Titleist at all, which is an oddity given where I am.

I’ve been playing the Bridgestone e6 softs for the last two years.  They were discontinued, but I can still find a dozen here and there.  I’ve tried numerous balls for the eventual day that my supply runs dry.  I’ve settled on the Srixon q-star tour as my replacement ball.

I try to stick to the same brand and model of ball so that I know what its going to do in any given situation.  Playing different balls all the time can cause trouble because you never really know what they ball is going to do.

I tend to stick with the Callaway balls I get at Costco. Used to use the Kirkland 3 piece, but preferred the feel of the Callaways. Stock up on a bunch at a good price. If I happen to find a ball with no visible markings, then I'll use it in a pinch.

I've bought nothing but Snell MTB for the last few years.  I was using the Black for a while, but recently switched to the X for increased short-iron spin, as our greens have been pretty firm this year.
