Best ball under $40

Isn't the forgiveness you're talking about a result of spin? Urethane balls typically spin more than surlyn, and that includes side spin - which could be why you find them "in bad places much quicker." So in general you can use surlyn and maybe hit more fairways but you can't stop the ball on approach. Or you in general you can use and have the ability to stop the ball on the green, though maybe missing more fairways. Just another of the tradeoffs in life...

I think most surlyn balls will stop when well struck from the fairway. Now I probably hit the ball higher and harder than most with a full iron so perhaps I’m biased.

What’s the best ball you have used under $40 in terms of consistency and overall quality? 

Srixon Z Star XV.  Father's day, black friday Christmas and new years they run Bogo or buy 2 get 1 free.  Absolute steal.  They are 44$ msrp but almost all retailers can sell at 39.99 on the discount.

Well, until now I’ve never heard of Clear Golf Balls, and never seen them for sale in a pro shop anywhere .  

It's a subscription service so you won't see them in a store

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.    

A real brand shouldn't have to compare themselves to others

Awesome.  Four holes in one.  All with Titleist.   2001, 2012, 2015, 2021.  Late bloomer, at 75 started playing in 1984.  Latest one was the one that surprised us the most.  Hit into a three club wind on to a Seth Raynor design redan green.  Rolled up the back and slowly back down into the cup.  Pleasant surprise.  Think most exciting of the four.

MaXFli Tour and Tour X. Been playing them for 3 seasons now. Dick Sporting Goods. 2 for $60 now. They were 2 for $55 the year before. I was getting laughed at until I gave a few away and some saw the green spin or check when I needed. I’m unlikely to change unless they change it for the worse. It’s the best bang for your buck I think.

Maxfli Tour X.  You can now buy four dozen fir $25 per dozen.  Great ball and I find it comparable to Pro V1.

For my money it’s the Snell MTB-Black. Great price, feel and distance. Another plus is the more you buy the price goes down. My first purchase was the MTB Test Pack which consisted of 6 MTB-Black balls and 6 MTB-X balls to compare them where it counts. On the course.

 I was at the indoor bay at Golf Galaxy today and rotated between the Tour CG and Pro V1. There was very little difference in spin, carry, total distance, and ball speed. 

I would rather spend $30 than $50 for golf balls. Need to test in course conditions this spring but I like what I see so far.

Snell MTB-X is my go-to if I’m not playing ProV. Titleist Tour Speed is right at 40 and I like that one a lot, too.

Srixon Q-Star Tour. 72 Compression-3 Piece-Urethane Cover. $34/dz, but Srixon has a BOGO on line last fall and a buy 2 get 3 in stores. I just purchased 6 dz for $120. The 72 compression is perfect for a senior off the tee and around the green.

I have to give a shout out to lostgolfballs.com, I buy a bucket of 96 ProV1's at their best condition (4 or 5 stars I can't remember) on sale for $180-190. My game doesn't know the difference between a new or used primo condition ball.

 My go to smoke back in the day (playing pinochle in the Student Union instead of going to class).  Maybe I should try this more with my golf balls — would certainly let me test a wide variety.

Big fan of the vice pro plus. Not too spinny with the driver in bad shots, good tee shots are rewarded and consistent distances. Good holding power with shots into the green. Wedges spin is consistent. The outer layer is pretty solid and seems to last as long as premium balls

Vice Pro. I see that several guys have posted that they have switched to this ball also. I was strictly bent on using the same ball all the time to stop the question of whether I was hitting lower shots or shorter shots due to the ball itself. I was committed to the Bridgestone BXS and the Pro V. I spent about the same every time ($50) and they performed about the same. Played in a 2 man tournament where we had 6 holes of best ball, 6 holes of scramble and 6 of alternate shot. I agreed to use my partner's Vice Pro for the final 6 holes. We have to play it as it lies and alternate hitting each shot. I really was surprised how well they cut through the wind off of driver and how well they stopped on approach shots. It's my new ball at $35 dzn.
