I've been playing the OnCore Elixir for the last year and a half. Very good ball and you can usually buy at 2 for $50. I play to a 7.2 and it does everything I need it to and you don't feel so bad when you lose one

Just switch from Bridgestone Tour B REX's to these, and gotta tell you THIS is my new go to ball after playing a few rounds they play and hold up just as well as the Bridgestones but $15-$20 cheaper... Hard to beat that deal.

Why is there a graphic of a fish on the sleeve?  Are they subliminally trying to influence where they'll end up?  🤔   😆  They should put a close up of a cup with a flagstick in it.

I switched from the Srixon Z Star to the Maxfli Tour CG about 4 months ago based on the '19 ball test. The latest ball test confirmed (for me) they are a best buy in performance for the price. For my swing they are a longer ball than the Srixon, I'm about to become among the elderly(80),  and I need all the distance I can find!  And I like them around the greens as well.  Index is 13.6

I actually believe in buying the cheapest ball that does what I need it to do. Titleist TruFeel and Tour Soft do everything I need. If the new Maxfli TriFli ball came in yellow I’d give it a try. 
The Wilson Duo Pro is an exceptional ball and is on sale now. If it came in a non matte color I’d load up on those.

I find higher spinning urethane balls require more practice and consistency than I have time for.

Not knowing anything about your game, a bit hard to answer.  But, if you spend a little time looking over this information, I suspect you'll find a few to try that meet your $40 or less criteria.

Ask and ye shall receive

Note that it is YELLOW. Almost to the point of being chartreuse. I love it. (And I am firmly in the camp that believes golf balls should be white...)

I was referring to the new TriFli, not the Tour. I have seen the Tour in yellow but several people have said the yellow chips very easily.

I play the tour ball. I switch over to a yellow ball from the time the fairway grass goes dormant until it turns green again in spring. I haven’t seen any chips, cuts or worn spots yet. I rarely lose a ball and play it for quite a few rounds. I just pulled the one I used over the past four rounds out of my bag to check it. After cleaning off a dirt mark it still looks good as new. I can't tellyouhow it will hold up to a cart path because I haven't hit one with it yet.

Titleist Tour Speed ($40), Tour Soft ($35) TruFeel ($25) as advertised on their site, could be a penny or two less on other sites.  Good golf balls.  I would go with true and tested brands.  Some off brands claim as good as a Titleist.  NOT.  You get what you pay for.

The two best balls under $40/dozen for me are the Snell MTB/X and the MaxFli Tour/X - almost as good as ProV1 to me at least. Comparable performance, slightly less consistent quality - and I wouldn't know that if it wasn't for MGS Ball Lab. I played the Snell MTB exclusively for 3-4 years, switched to MaxFli Tour last year when Snell prices increased and they were rationed/out of stock at times. Again I never would have even considered the MaxFlis had it not been for MGS Ball Lab. At the moment I have 2 dozen ProV1's in the closet (gift from my wife) and 5 dozen MaxFli Tours.

Kirkland V 2.0. How can you beat 24 balls for half the price of a box of Pro V1’s??? I can tell that I lose distance on my drives, but for the cost I will justify losing a couple yards.

I've been using Vice Pro for the last 4 years. When buying in bulk they are only $26/dozen and for me, they perform as well as ProV1's. I just don't lose as much money when I lose one!!
