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

I'm sticking with the MTB-X, partly because it works for me and partly because I have 5 doz sitting on the shelf.

I'm not sure.  I still have a dozen or so of the Titleist Tour Soft that I was using for winter golf.  I also have a dozen large numbers PV1X left over from last summer.  I can probably get by for a few months without buying any {slight brag}.  I may get another dozen PV1X or the MTB-X, but I'd also like to try a sleeve of Tour B X.

For me its looking like Snell MTB-X is the leader in the clubhouse.  I've also still got a few Bridgestone Tour B X left too.  Plus a few leftover (starting to get beat up) early season Pro V1X to go through.  I'll try to play a few more rounds with both the Snell and Bridgestone, but based on my late rounds last year I don't see a reason to go with anything other than the Snell.  

Also, I'll be ordering mine with with the AlignXL printing.  I'm hooked.

Just curious - For you Snell guys - did the ball test lead to your decision to try these?

I wouldn't say the ball test itself, but this forum 1000%.  If I hadn't read about them on here I doubt I would have given them a second look if they even got a first look, which is a shame since they are excellent.

That's the reason I want to test them. Though I've got dozens of balls already so I may wait for the test of the Black as well and purchase the mixed pack they sell.

Hard to say for me.  I did the Titleist ball fitting and I was fit into the AVX or the ProV left dash.  I am going to put these two against both Snell's and Iove the Bridgestone BXS.  I need to wait for warmer weather to really get a feel for them.  I will say I like hit the AVX and Left Dash (in colder temps low 40's) but I liked the AVX better.  We shall see next week...supposed to be mid 60's so I will take them all out and give them a run.

Sticking with the tried and true that you've used for years or thinking of something else?

I've tried to play mostly Srixon but will admit to branching out and trying some others like the Maxfli; have found a lower price version I'm thrilled with yet.

I'm frugal so I try not to go over 30 for a dozen, which cuts out a lot of the higher end balls.
I think this year I'm going to try the MTB-X. Can pick up a dozen on Amazon for 33 now and free ship w/prime.

Still gaming the Maxfli Tour X but as every year, Im going to try out different balls and see if maybe theres something better out there.

Right now my plan is to go with the TaylorMade TP5 Pix practice balls. They're such a good deal for a tour level ball that I can't pass them up. Who knows? I really don't have that much of a club no problem, but golf balls? I have a problem.

I had a pretty good year with the Srixon XVs last year, but after @chisag posted the TP5X Pix Practice ball deal, I had to give them a try.  And wouldn't you know it, I love them.  I didn't think I'd like the Pix design, but it's really great for putting.  I'll pick up some "real" ones for tournaments.

I’m planning on buying 4-for-3 Pro V1X as soon as the sale starts, but the new TP5X has me intrigued, and I putted with a pix ball at a store recently and loved seeing the design rolling along letting me know how well I struck the putt... Hmm. I NEED this wet to go away so I can try a sleeve of the new Pro V1X I got from the virtual ball fitting. I’ll probably grab a sleeve of TP5X and try them against each other.
