What golf balls are players using


Recommended Posts

So I had bought some Cut Greys on a whim a little while back and used them the same day, with no practice time and wasn't too much of a fan. However, in hindsight my swing wasn't so great that day (I walked 9 right after work) so I pulled one out during the back 9 of my round the other day. I found it to perform much better than I originally saw, pretty good distance off the tee and I liked the feel on the greens. It reminded me a lot of the Q Star Tour at a lower price point and with a cover that didn't pick up stains as quickly as the QST does in my experience.

I’m currently using the vice tour golf balls and love them what balls are other golds using, prefer, or are interested in using 

My top three golf balls:

1. Snell MTB-X (this has, or HAD, been my favorite ball for 3 or 4 years) ... MTB Black is not bad, either.

2. OnCore VeroX1 -- I have loved this ball since first trying the prototype version of it last summer.

2. 2021 Maxfli TourX CG, which I think has become my new favorite ball.

I prefer the higher-compression 4-piece Urethane cover balls, which both the Snell MTB-X and Maxfli TourX are (the performance of these two balls is remarkably similar -- just look at the latest MGS Ball Test results). However, the VeroX1 has that "special something" for me, even though it is slightly lower in compression than the other two balls that I favor. I do lose a few yards in distance across the board with the VeroX1, but not a great deal, and the superior accuracy that I see with this ball (VeroX1) makes up for that very slight distance loss.

I like the proV1x


bridgestone xs 

they’re all long and spin well

butttt, I’ll play most anything except for call super speed, and the such, not any pinnacles either, 

most every company’s “best/better balls” are good enuff for me unless it’s an important round

Used Callaway supersoft for many years and then someone gave me a sleeve of tour response.  Birdied the first two holes that day and have never used anything else.  Much better stopping power on the green - for me ( ymmv ).

I have been using the Wilson staff balls. I have tried pro v1s I have tried just about every other premium ball on the map and yet I get as good if not better distance with the Wilson ball than anything else that I've tried

It’s taken me a few years to find a ball that checks all the boxes for me. I used to play the ProV1x and moved away from it when it started to become a spinnier ball. Made the mistake of hitting the Kirklands which the latest ball test show spin WAY too much for me. 

I found the ball test for the ProV1x Left Dash and then followed that up with a virtual ball fitting through Titleist where I was fit for the Left Dash and sent samples. I hit the samples out on the course and found exactly what I was looking for. I’ve stocked up when they were buy 3, get 1 and plan on plying them at least until the next ball cycle in a couple years.

Tour B XS, backups are Z Star or XV, and Pro V1.

The B XS is a bit unique in that it's higher spin but softer. I score my best with it consistently. Driver speed is 100-105mph, 7 iron is 165 carry. Deliver the club pretty level, so am lower spin and the XS helps with that. Biggest benefit I find is greenside, but the ball just seems to want to go straight on full shots compared to Pro V's.

I have played or tested most everyball on the market and keep going back to Titleist.  Last fall I made the switch to the AVX after playing the pro v1 or the x for the past 18 years.  I liked the flight of the ball and the spin around the greens.  I play 4 to 5 days a week.  I have lowered my index to 6.3 this year again and now playing handicap on my main course is 3.  I do not loose too many balls in a year and the buy 3 get one free last me probably 7 months--in the winter I have changed to the tour soft so it will not sting.  But from mid February through early November it is AVX.

New TP5....I was using the Vice Pro Soft for a long time and really loved them except for one thing... I didn't like the way it jumped of my putter face at times (very much like catching a flyer with an iron shot). So I started lookin again. The New TP5 feels phenomenal...and never jumps off my putter....So I'm a TP5 guy now.

Play PXG all the way through the bag and an Odessey OS Seven putter with Callaway Triple Track

I continue to use the Pro V1x with the yellow option. I buy the 3 - get 1 free. That’s 3 dollars a ball. In a pinch they are always available. Srixon offers better deals on Z-Star. Once other urethane balls get to 30-35 a dozen nor enough reason to switch. I like the Titleist Tour Speed, but at $39.99 a dozen and not in the loyalty 4-4-3 package, I’ll stick with the X.

Right now I am using Srixon XV. Switched to them from Bridgestone RBX red. Tp me they perform the same and the cost is a little less or was. Used to plat Callaway chrome soft but I could never figure them out around the green. Yes more operator error than ball. 

Now with the new set of clubs I am not sure I like how the performance is of this ball. I use the last couple dozen I have and do some testing of other brands and models. 

I will look at the ball test done by MSG to narrow down a new piece of equipment I won’t mind losing in the woods, water, fescue, or the occasional living room of some random house.
