Playing a Yellow/Orange/Red/Green Ball


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Even for us traditionalists, there are different gradations of white. The 'pure white' from Srixon was an adjustment for me since most urethane balls are more of an ivory and I was coming from Bridgestone's Tour BXS. I have tinkered with the idea of gaming something other than white, but I'm just not there yet. Even the matte and hot colors are still too weird for me. My neighbor games the Bridgestone e12s in matte red and it. is. BRIGHT. but I'd be willing to try em out. Don't know that I could say the same for yellow just yet...

Maxfli Tour in yellow for me. I prefer a colored ball and it helps me find it when I am way right....or left....

I found a ball that agrees with every aspect of my game. I love the feel off the driver, irons, and putter so without further dodo I present my favorite.

I may have to try the green. I found a Callaway Super Soft Green in the last round I played. I played it as my 2nd ball for the remainder of the round and honestly liked how easy it made the ball

I like a good old-fashioned white ball. I find they are easiest to see for me.

Now some of the colored balls do look pretty cool though. My daughters like the colored Volviks, but a few of the colors, particularly the red and purple are very hard to see.

I haven’t played with blue balls (no follow-up jokes here) ... but my buddy’s dad has (who no joke, his name is Woody) and it’s very difficult at times to keep track of his blue ball.

YES! My goodness, the Srixon’s are blindingly white ... seriously. Bought four dozen during their Father’s Day BOGO sale (which I’m regretting for they’re to firm and clicky in the short game area for me) and went with the white for the personalization that was done on them. 

Great ball overall. 

Have since reverted back to my optic yellow Snells and my short game improved significantly.

Not sure what it is with my eyes but I cannot follow the red or orange.

Personally, i love colored balls. Ive played orange and yellow, red, and even pink Volviks (which i hated how they felt and put in my practice bucket), red/white, yellow/white and green/white callys.

I find them easier to find (except green/white) and i dont mind if others play them. However, im currently playing white Srixons that were given as tournament entry and im really enjoying them. For me, they are as long as anything else, but are really good around the greens for me.

The Vice lime greens are pretty nice and it’s not too loud (neon green) of a color. 👌🏼 

A friend if mine gave me a box of the Vice Pro Softs in green and I definitely like how they look. Great color. 
 

I usually like to use a yellow ball. I need to get some TP5s in yellow when my current stock levels get a little lower.

I guess I am a little quirky regarding colors. On course its traditional white golf ball only. Wedge and putting green practice I actually enjoy the green/yellow varieties. No orange anything whatsoever. Have not tried red.

I typically play a traditional white ball but from time to time I will play the Vice Pro in Red. Pretty good ball I'd have to say.

Vice is a considerably good ball. Played thru 5 dozens of their Vice Pro+ in lime green and liked it a lot. Tried Snells shortly thereafter and have been playing Snells ever since. 

Saw that they came out with softer hue, pastel colored balls as well.

You know the big OEMs are taking it seriously when Titleist finally comes out (in the past 6 months or so) with a yellow ball for their Pro V1 lines.

Agreed. I’ve found a couple of these on course and really like the color of them. Of course, they’re really nice to hit too. It is serious business when the big companies join in.

I have yet to try the Snell balls, which do you recommend that is comparable to the Vice Pro? 

 

I seen this as well. I really like that they're adding flavor to the game!

It would be the MTB versions of Snell ... with the Blacks being softer and the Xs being firmer. I’ll say this, these golf balls absolutely work for me off the tee ... and it was noticeably different off the tees compared to the Vice.

My wife is *begging* me to get some of the new pastel balls. But she wants to decorate with them as they coordinate with her existing love affair with Lilly Pulitzer 🙄 if they weren't the Pro Softs, I might try em. But I'm pretty confident they'll be too soft for my taste.

I tried yellow, and found that they were easier to track in a cloudy overcast sky, but harder to find in the grass - especially when it is sunny out and the yellow ball and the glare of the sun against the grass blades blend together so well the ball is almost camouflaged. Here in the western part of the country where I am, we have a lot more sun than cloudy overcast days, so white works better for me.

I do play an orange or pink ball in the fall when fallen leaves litter the fairways. It is too bad there is not a tour-quality orange or pink ball out there at the moment.
