What's your golf ball for 2021?

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.

Ditto. ☝️

I haven't found a ball that performs better for me than the MTB-X, and I like the Optic Yellow color as it's easier for me to see in low-light situations. The Srixon Z-Star XV is close, and I still have a sleeve of those left that will be donated to the woods soon, I'm sure.

I lucked out initially and snagged four dozen in 2019 on B/S/T here for a discount, but ordered my five dozen on Black Friday and hopefully should be set for this season.

I'm thinking between a few balls this year.  I might stick with the Bridgestone BRX again this year.  I also tried the Vice Tour last year and found it quite decent for the price.  I think I will also give the e12 contact a try this year.

I sent my buddy (who's an accountant and does our taxes for free) a dozen GET SUM balls. I added a funny saying on the ball but as a higher handicap I think he'll really like it. 

Pretty inexpensive too!

I got something to say then I'm gonna say it.

He's a member at a fancy shmancy club but isn't a very good golfer (shoots in 100s and gets excited to break 90) and he's a regular at the bar.

Sticking with Bridgestone RXS, might switch to XS because my swing speed is about 102, close to the 105 mark.

My ball has been the Bridgestone Tour B X, but they stopped making it in yellow, which I strongly prefer, and I've finally run out of my yellow stock. I tried the MTB-X, but after 2 rounds I think it's the worst wind ball I've ever played. Since that's supposed to be the area of greatest improvement from the older version, I shudder to think how bad it used to be. For reasons unrelated to golf, I have a strong loyalty to Bridgestone, so I'm probably going to go with the Tour BRX.
