what ball and driver combo do you use

Recommended Posts

I'm a Taylormade SIM and TP5 or TP5 Pix guy.  Switched to them full time this year and loving the combo / results.  Perfect mix of distance and spin for control.

I play a ProV1X because of the control it provides on and around the greens, and you know you are getting a quality ball with each one you pull out of the box. I like my ball to stop right where I hit it with my short irons, no excessive bounces forward or spin backwards. I therefore have to build my driver setup around a high spin ball, which I’m currently in the process of. Right now I’m leaning towards a SIM Max adjusted to 8.5 degrees and a Fujikura Speeder TR in a 661X. Has the right combination of feel in the shaft for my swing, and I launch ProV1X around 12 degrees with 2000RPMs. My swing speed hovers around 111-112 with max velocity swings around 116-117 when I need to reach for another gear.

Cobra F9 and Bridgestone B XS (sometimes the RX). The B X can sometimes knuckle ball with the lower spin on high toe hits.

Calloway Rogue Subzero with a Graphite Design YS-Six XS, hitting Snell MTB, either Black or X.  I use the X when greens get really firm and I want more short iron spin.

I play the Callaway XR16 9.0° with a Project X LZ shaft (probably 'made for') and my favorite ball is the Titleist AVX, but I am Gaming anything from the Bridgestone RX to Pro V1x and ProV1 based solely on playing the ball I Find. I find more ProVs than anything else. A TM TP5x is also a great ball for my driver. 

Golf is simple - people are complicated.

I play a Callaway Super Hot ball usually.

The driver is a 9.5° Callaway Epic Flash SZ.

Shaft is a Tensei White x flex ( made for???) stock shaft.

My swing speed is only 106, but this combo works great for me.

i currently use a tayormade m4 12 degree set at upright with either calaway superhot yellow or a titleist tour speed both have mid hight and plenty of distance and 80% straight down the fairway. i may try a ball with a diffrent spin to see what happens.
