Tourstage has orange green and pink I think for the Tourstage B+ which is similar to the 330RX. I've played a sleeve of those last year. I also played a sleeve of the Z Star X-yellows last month. They are just so hard to find in the stores.

Green? How accurate do you need to be to play a green ball? :huh:

Creamer's pink ball is a B330S. We used to sell them at my shop. I still have a few laying around the house that I break out for matches and when a total douche joins our group. Nobody likes to be outdriven by a guy wearing pink shoes and hitting a pink ball off of a pink tee.

OK, my bad. She must have switched to that ball last year. Pink Ball = Douche? OK, whenever we have the inaugural MGS member tournament, I will have to remember that. :huh:

I keep one in the bag for those times I get paired up with "I drive it 330" guy. Then I like to bust out the pink ball and bust it past him. A little story......

First time I ever hit this ball was at a little executive course here in town. 1st hole is a 345yd dogleg right, with about a 310 carry to the green. I have NEVER hit this green in my life. There is a group putting out, so I hit it. The thing lands on the surface. We get up there, and I am apologizing up and down, and the dudes say "we WERE pissed, until we saw it was a pink ball". Then they were cool.

I love that ball

I'm a little late to this thread, but I'm bummed that the Tri-Speed won't be coming in yellow. I dig the idea of playing a yellow ball (my mom has been playing the same yellow ball for 2 years and she's ALWAYS in the tall grass), but I can't afford to play a $40/dozen ball. Hopefully the Tour will be successful enough that the yellow will trickle down (ewwww) to the Tri-Speed.

If response is positive, you will see the yellow show up at all price points, and from all companies .

Actually it is supposed to be yellow similar to the Srixon ball. I have seen it up close and it is more of yellow-green. I guess I said green because it is more green than the Z stars,.

Who is Tourstage? Are they Urethane?

Yellow is the new white, especially when you start getting old like me. Any help finding the ball in the rough, I will take it.

Don't forget to go to the contest forum and enter a submission for the Srixon Z Star Tour Yellow give away. I think today is the last day to get an entry in.

 

It's only for a couple balls, I think...but it's all in fun.

Yeah. I remember a few years back, Nike had a promo Nike One Black that was all black. I chipped with it once and dang near lost in the rough. That was a ball that was only for promo purposes. I really like the yellow concept. It is ridiculously easy to find the ball.

Current bag: Some Callaway, some Cleveland. Down to 2 OEM's!

With all of this hype and interest in yellow, do you think that orange is far behind? Or marketing Paula's pink?

I agree! I hope to see more golf balls from different companies follow Srixon's lead. Anything to make the ball easier to find is a plus. The color Srixon chose must really stand out.

What Titleist ball would the TriSpeed compare to? NXT??

NXT is The Titleist companion ball to Trispeed, but not even close in terms of distance... for me. Trispeed has to be the longest ball I have ever hit.

I bought my first box of Trispeeds this winter. They are sitting on top of my bookshelf - just waiting to get on the course. :D

Same here, I have a Box of Tri-speeds, I usually play Soft Feels, so I can't wait to see what the difference is. Always loved the Soft Feels.
