Absolute longest ball no matter what?

If you were going to play in a scramble and wanted to hit the absolute longest rock there is, what would you choose?  Green side spin/feel/whatever doesn't matter since you can switch to your gamer for the approach.

Probably Nitro Ultimate Distance.  I played various Nitro balls last year and they were stupid long off every club, no spin though.  When I played them, if I hit one solid and in the fairway, they seemed to get like 50 yards of roll.

The only downer was that you pretty much had to aim for the front of the green and leave yourself with full swings into the green as much as possible because they don't spin very much.

I probably wouldn't change a thing and continue to play my normal ball.  I've never found "distance" balls to give me enough extra distance to warrant buying them for that rare scramble.

Love the Velocity. If you want something that isn't bottom of the barrel rock try the Bridgestone e6/e12 Speed. That thing has no stop on it.

IF I need carry distance due to fairways not rolling or soft, then its the Noodle Long and Soft (newer models / 2018 and up -- not Maxfli versions)

IF I get roll out, Titleist Velocity

Those are always in the bag for scrambles and for a second "practice" shot after I hit my normal shot/ball of choice. Just to see what I am really capable of 😀

Since I don't drive the ball very far and any extra distance I might get playing this ball in a scramble would be immaterial, I think I would be much better for my team if I signed up as a 25 handicap.  It all evens out, right?

I think the Velocity, while perhaps not the "absolute longest" gets you close and still provides some reasonable control.  I have played these a few times in our "Hard Rock Challenge" thread/contest and have recorded one of my lowest scores of the summer season with it.

I played one of the e12s I found last time I was out. You arent kidding about no-stop. I rolled that thing off the back of a 32 yard long green on my approach.

When Bridgestone launched them they claimed it was longer than the pro v, and yes it is. But.... that's it this ball goes a mile, is durable, and looks cool in the optic yellow, but it's no tour level ball.

I agree the Velocity is a long ball.
It reminds me of the older Pinnacle Gold, but the Velocity has feel to it.
I really like the Velocity for a non-urethane ball. I'll play them if I'm going to a new course or one with lots of trouble.

There was an older Callaway ball with an orange chevron, I believe it was the HX HOT PLUS. Thing was a rocket, always seemed to take a huge hop and roll forever in the fairway.
