My gamer is the Bridgestone Tour BRX ball which is decently long.  But the E12 speed is consistently a club longer.  Haven’t tried the new E12 Contact.  The E12 speed though really runs out on both chips and putts too.

Snell MTB-X, and Pro V1X Left Dash!

Left dash is my new favorite ball. So awesome. 

As for the overall topic, I've always been curious about this. We used to swear by Top Flite XL for this, but that was back in the late 90s / early 00s, and most scrambles we played were on unwatered courses, so 🤷. Most tests with the distance-focused balls seem to be with their target market (i.e. slower swing speeds), which totally makes sense, but leaves us "need 5 more yards for the long drive hole" guys hanging. For higher swing speeds (100+), I've heard the tour-level balls are as long or longer than the distance balls off the tee, but I'd be interested to see tests to back that up. 

I've heard good things about Velocity and plan to try it this year. Prior gen Volvik XT have also done well for me distance-wise.

If you have the club head speed...Left Dash Pro V1x is stupid long off the tee. 

To give you an example from personal experience:

GC Quad Session last week. 10 driver swings with the Bridgestone Tour BX, Left Dash and 2021 TP5X. I took the best 5

B Stone ~2,450RPM, 11.2* Launch, 167.5mph ball speed, 285 carry, 303 total.

2021 TP5X ~2,800RPM, 11.0* Launch, 166.5mph ball speed, 279 carry, 294 total. 

Left Dash ~1,975RPM, 12.8* Launch, 166.2mph ball speed, 291 carry, 314 total.

Yea, but how do those compare to Top Flite numbers? 😂

With the Left Dash last year, I don't have the actual data to back it up, but gut feel was that I was hitting some of my best drives in the last ~10 years.

I still have some new in box Titelist DT SOLO Roll or something like that as well as Slazenger distance balls from about 2008 that were good for an extra 30 yards or more over the ProV1x I was playing. I had some silly long drives back then with those balls.....

TXG compared the ProV to the Velocity.  Bottom line:  At Matt's 118 MHP CS speed, ProV was longer.  left dash will be even longer at higher speeds.

So, if I don't have the club speed, does that mean that Right Dash is the one for me??  😂

Isn’t it firm is always fast? I have some left dashes coming Friday I am interested to try. Vero x is also supposedly fast. I better have super long drives then!
