My Golf Spy Ball Lab Report-Ball Comparison Tool


Recommended Posts

My biggest initial takeaway is the Wilson Staff Model ball, being the highest quality ball behind all the Titleist balls.   I think this speaks volume for the ball and Wilson.  With so many of the other companies touting the quality of their processes, it's really cool to see Wilson do so well in that regard for a ball that at least from my knowledge is not produced at a company owned plant in the US.

Also I should give a shout out the forums very own @TR1PTIK who began a very similar project of his own to track and compare the results of the Comparison tool that he has been updating here.   Whether it was the inspiration to the MGS staff or not, I can't honestly say, but kudos to him for being a trendsetter.

Thanks! Honestly, I just saw a need (perhaps more of a want) from a number of forum users and blog commenters, and thought I'd try to help. It was something I enjoyed working on, but I am happy about the release of the official comparison tool.

Tony has and continues to do a phenomenal job with Ball Lab. I'm looking forward to all that is to come as a result of his efforts!

Yep right there next in line.  I found one of those balls about a year ago and played it for 8 or 9 holes before losing it.   Really liked what I saw from it.

Unfortunately for users that must use a keyboard or screen reader (yes, family and friends of golfers who may be disabled want to use this tool) this tool is totally useless. Unfortunate since the American Disabilities Act would view this as discrimination. Much of MGS site and forum is difficult to use for those using a keyboard.

While MGS probably doesn’t fall into a category that mandates compliance, you have a valid point about making the content more accessible to individuals with disabilities. I would suggest you reach out directly to MGS.

I've been playing it since I tested it on here as well.  I wish people would quit talking about it...it's been my secret.  The Tour does everything I want a premium ball to do and costs much less.  My only gripe is the yellow color (which I prefer to play) is painted on so the finish can start to come off unlike the Srixon or Titleist yellow balls where the yellow is the color of the urethane.

Was a good read and cool to have that info right at our fingertips. Was nice to see both the balls I normally play (TP5 and Zstar) very close and have solid ratings. 
Once again more honest reliable info provided by MGS with easy access for all to see and read to make the best possible choice suited to their game.

(Before I leave my comment here, when I click "join the discussion" on the linked page to comment, it keeps re-routing me to the top of the page, unable to comment....why?) (help) - Now, the good stuff. MGS is the best website, I read every article, stop my work to click the email links, even if it is about things I have no intention of activating (I walk and carry, yet I read reviews of push carts and cart bags) and I love that they are SO nerdy about the details. My OCD appreciates it, and my gear-headed brain loves it. Keep it up, thank you all for all of your time. Golf Balls and the Lab you run are the best of the best for me.
