What's your golf ball for 2021?


Recommended Posts

I think I’m going to get a couple boxes of Snell Get Sum to try after I work my way through the assortment of leftovers I have in my bag.  High handicapper, so it shouldn’t take long.

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.

Have you tried ebay? I always get 100 pro v1x got like $50

Been hit once but usually good quality. Worth it enough for me, I've gone that route many times

Using a poop emoji putter right now since mine broke, and I'm going to do a full bag fitting in the coming months. Didn't want to spend big right before doing the fitting 💩

I may have to grab a dozen of the new 2 tone Q stars, they remind me so much of the old Ping ballsIMG_1622.JPG

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 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.

Have you tried going to Golfdiscount? They have some great pricing on last year balls. I play TP5 Pix and got practice balls at 19.99/dz.

After watching the 2019 golf ball fitting YouTube, I picked up the Kirkland 3-piece at Costco and spun balanced all two dozen.  I have tried spin balance and floating balls in epsom salt solution and spin balancing seems to work easier for me.  I let you know how it goes.

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

I began playing them just before the ball test, I had been playing Chrome Soft but they had been busted for being so many off center balls in a dozen.  It was pretty close to the same time, and lots of positive feedback from folks here on Snell.  Being as there are no golf stores close to me I ordered the MTB and MTB-X and tried each.  I now play the MTB-X exclusively.

I'm trying the new taylormade tp5x! From the people I've talked to, they really stepped up their game with this ball. Can't wait for my order to get here.

I’m wondering if I should’ve bought the left dash instead of Pro V1X..... It is DEFINITELY longer off the driver! Crud!!!!

left dash are amazing!!! Played it for a season and as a slower SS player, it was great in pretty much all aspects. Obviously greenside didn't produce as much spin as V1 or V1x but MD callaway grooves helped with that.

I've always played Pro V1x, but recently received a free dozen of Tour B X from Bridgestone and may do those balls fly. Have been hitting them longer off the tee than the Pro V1x. So, I might be switching balls.

Give the Tour B X a try if you have a high swing speed.

Pro VIx - did the ball fitting and my fitter said that's where I should be - it's been where I should be for about 10 years in fact.  I don't loose many balls, I do the buy 3 get one, personalized special every January.  I still have a dozen plus left over from last year - after giving some sleeves away to another Pastor friend named Kevin.

ng 

I should really try to test last year v. this year - this year is supposed to be longer and a bit softer - I'm not seeing the longer but I might by the softer feel.  Of course I have new wedges so it's hard to say if its the ball or the wedges.

Ping G410 5-9 wood  Alta 65 R flex

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.
