Who knows.... too many existing left over choices. And this isn't even all of them.

So many choices now in the golf ball space; both exciting and can be somewhat confounding.  What are you going with this year? Sticking with the tried and true that you've used for years or thi

Sticking with the Srixon Z-Star but experimenting with the XV and some of the other X balls once the season gets going.

Based on Titleist fitting I am going to compare the V1 against the AVX. Been plying the AVX but the online fitter thought the V1 would be better.

Prov1 is the main ball. I am curious about what TM did with the new TP5/5x and curious to see what BXS is like so these balls will get some testing

I've got a bunch of the e12 and the Duo in my closet, so that's what I'll be sticking with for the bulk of the year.

Snell MTB-Black as I have since the original MTB. I buy them 4-5 dozen at a time so they’ve always been under $30 including shipping. I’ve tried all the big name and other DTC tour balls, and I even buy myself a dozen Pro V1’s once a year or so, but I always come back to the Snell MTB. If cost was no object I’d play Pro V1’s, but the best value tour ball is the Snell MTB for my money.

One of the calls I'm gonna try out. When it was still the B330 I did a live Bridgestone ball fitting and that's what their guy told me to play.

Inesis 900 for me.  I'm upgrading from a cheaper different brand that I've used for a couple of years and get on ok with, but feel I may benefit from a better quality ball.  I like Srixon Soft Feel, but i get a eurethane cover for about the same price with the Inesis so giving them a go this season.

I will be playing the Titleist Pro V1 and only the Pro V1. I've put the Pro V1x through the paces, as well as the Bridgestone Tour BX and found them to be too clicky.

Gonna do a little tinkering with the new Z-Star. Softer and spinnier around the greens but less spin off the driver reads like a recipe for switching from the XV, but we'll see. First up I need to get new/different wedges.
