Seeing what the Pro's would choose is very interesting, and in this scenario with no Pro V there may not be Snell. I bet it would be Taylormade or Srixon for the pros, and I would say for me it would probably be Srixon. 

I think many would possibly move to bridgestone as well especially due to the quality control

I know I mentioned a preference earlier in the thread about what ball I would go to. But I will qualify that by stating, that would be if I had to pay for them. Truth be told I have purchased about two boxes of balls over the last 10 years.

I am in a lot of charity events and I am always given sleeves of balls in gift packs, winning boxes from on course contests, raffle prize and such. I even had a major golf ball company donate a crate of 500 top of the line logo over run balls for a tournament I was running. I gave all the players two sleeves in their welcome bag and still had left overs (not enough to give everybody an extra sleeve) So I had some from that. I still have two brand new unopen boxes of TaylorMade Penta golf balls in my inventory and they came out around 2016. 

Many times I will get balls that I wouldn't put into play so I will give them away to newer golfers. I just gave away three dozen last week to someone who is starting to get into golf.  We order 24 dozen a year for my company that we use to give away to our customers when we go to events. Although I have full access to them I don't play that particular ball and don't want to be accused of playing company balls because they were free to me. 

So I usually play something from my inventory. I probably still have over 10 boxes laying around and twice as many sleeves of balls. To me as long as it is a decent ball I'll give it a try. If I don't like it then I give them away as well. I don't lose balls very often and can play the same ball for several rounds ( Having no water on my course helps). One scuff and I deem it unfit for play. Then it goes into the shag bucket.

 For serious golf matches, then I have a preference to the ball I'll play. 

So no haters out there... I do give away a lot, I'm just fortunate to get balls often.

I shudder to think of such a world 🙂

But I'll play along, i would play the Z Star and RX for a couple rounds each, then pick 1 and stick with it.

On a funny side note.   Yesterday I played in a scramble that was raising funds for a local Head Pro and his fight with cancer.

I pulled up to the Bag Drop and as I was getting out I heard a voice say, "Who's this showing up with ProV license Plate"

Oh yeah, of course it's Robert!!  What a shock!

I turned and it was the TM and Bridgestone Reps standing next to each other.   Yikes 😲   Busted...LOL

Fortunately both of them had seen it before and are really good guys and always enjoy giving me a hard time.

Note: And yes before anyone comments, the plate was renewed in September and is legal 🙂

Most definitely, I’m really surprised more pros haven’t switched. I thought this current model might have got some, the reactive cover is really good.

Lol!! That’s what my Fiance said as well. I haven‘t looked it up.  But guess i will.  Maybe that’ll keep people from breaking in or cutting me off in traffic 😎
 

I do have a Team Titleist window sticker in the rear door-It’s an SUV-so hopefully that clears it up for anyone uncertain.

Snell MTB-X. All the way 

I second this ball choice. I was playing the ProV1 and TP5 but I've moved over to the Snell MTB-X. If I get in a pinch I'll buy the ProV1 or TP5 but my prefered ball is MTB-X.

LOL Looks like I will be the only person that would dare say Callaway CSx.  I have played it for the past 6 months and have been really pleased.  Maybe should try the Bridgestone BX or BXS again.

I have yet to try these but have heard others say they hit a sweet spot in the compression scale and match up well with low/mid handicap player games.  I've just been waiting for Callaway to sweeten the pot a little and throw in a pair of these when you buy 3 dozen or more 🙂.

As I was scrolling through this I was about to make a comment about no one picking a Callaway ball, but then the last few posts mentioned that, so that comment is now void.

What would I do if they stopped making ProV1, or you couldn't get it?   Hmmmm...that's a tough one, because at my course that 90% of the balls I find in the woods that someone else lost.  I'm guessing it would be whatever replaced that in the woods?  lol.

It's been so long since I've really needed to buy golf balls, but I can tell you that my last purchase was two dozen TaylorMade TP5x.  Those balls go a bit further for me, and I've been known to play one ball for about 5 rounds, until the cover absolutely becomes so worn out that I have to chuck it.  I wear balls out most of the time before I lose them.

And currently I am 3+ rounds into wearing out a single Titleist AVX that I found in the woods that was in perfect shape when it found me.  And I've gotta say, as far as durability goes, the Titleist AVX is really hard to wear out.  It's honestly a toss up between the AVX and the TM TP5x as to which is better.  AVX seems a bit more durable so I am going to have to go with that.
