It's not a specific ball, but more of a type of test I would like to see added. Because of all the work that MGS has done over the years we're realizing just how important consistency is and just how hard it is for ball manufactures to achieve. I would love to see some testing around that. Does Maxfli's CG Balancing technology make a difference? Does check-go work? If so on both then how much?

I started playing Saintnine's U-Pro golf balls during the winter.  They're 2-piece urethane balls and are constantly on sale for under $20 a dozen.

They also have a 3-piece urethane ball called U-Pro Tour, but at $39.99 - I've never tried them.

https://saintnineamerica.com/collections/all-products

I'd be really interested in seeing these two balls tested.

 

Thanks, -- Peejer

I wish there was a "wind test" to see which balls are really effected by winds in excess of 20 MPH. 

I love the MAxfli tour ball but this and the BXS seem to really balloon on windy days for me while the left dot and the CSX seem to "cut through" much better.

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but i would love to see how cheaper balls compare to the more expensive balls. Would be useful to see the data showing the difference between a £20 box of balls, compared to a £30 box of balls compared to a £50 box of balls

If you looked at the 2021 test theres a decent selection of price range balls that were tested imo.

There were alot yes, but I mean balls like Srixon Distance and AD333, Titleist velocity and tru feel, the E6 etc in the Bridgestone range. We all know we are losing out in some ways buying a Srixon Distance (£12) over a Srixon Z Star (£40) but how much of a difference is there, in real numbers?

I dont know all the prices I just assumed the prices listed in the article were at least right at the time when it was published and some of those were reasonable I thought. Kirkland is 1/4 the price of Titlist ProV1 , Maxfli/Snell/Mizuno/Vice had balls on the barely over 1/2 the price of ProV1's . Im guessing the Kirkland ball isnt available in England but some of the others must be. Closest I have been to England is Sailing past Gibraltor on a Submarine 40 years ago lol.

The test was done on eurathane balls only.

I don’t recall the reason for only going that route but I’m sure time and money were the biggest reason.

But one can easily find out the difference on their own in simple on course testing. Use whatever cheaper ball you currently play then pick a ball you want to compare it to and buy that ball then go on the course and play both

Going to be fun to see this as it should be starting sometime soon.

With a few new balls like LAB and PXG having some newer names and contenders will make it interesting!

I'd like to see if Costco worked the bugs out with this year's "more" colorful release of the Kirkland Signature, and a vote for the Wilson Duo which I use as a Winter ball due to visibility (that neon green really stands out against brown fairways), softness, and price.

My absolute favorite thing MGS does!  Really interested to see if there are any unexpected golf balls that test well.  I generally like to see the results and try the various balls based of the test results.

As a senior golfer with a slow swing speed please include the 2 piece balls that are under $25. Also include the Maxfli straightfli. 

Played golf for over 50 years until my health and business calendar reduced my time to less then 5 rounds a year. Then 4 years ago I retired, changed my diet and lifestyle, lost 100 pounds and got back on the course. Its been a struggle but things are getting better.

Trust golf balls which are knly available through Amazon.com.  Been playing them for a full year now and they perform almost as well as a Premium Titliest or Srixon ball.  Specifically the Bison X.  price is right and I do not lose distance and/or stopping power.

Definitely want to see the results for the new Snell balls.  Also Vice and Maxfli.

Would also be interesting to see a test doone of the newest iteration of premium balls (Titleist ProV1, Callaway Chromesoft, etc. vs. their prior version.  Would be very interesting to see how much difference have the improvements made?

Lets get more 2 PIECE, and lower price 3 piece offerings in the mix like some TopFlite, Maxfli, Wilson, all ladies balls, and those that seniors would play. We ALL don't play the TOUR balls! A lot of us for financial reasons play the cheaper 2/3 piece balls on the market. Cally Supersoft for one, but what about Wilson 50 and Triad, or TF Hammer Control and Distance, Srixon Soft Feel, Maxfli Softfli, and Straightfli, and why not the Trifli..Bridgestone E12, and Cally ERC. Any of the DTC 2 piece, and lower priced 3 piece balls too. Matte versions should also be included. Basically anything under $40 should be included, because a LOT OF US play these type of balls! We all don't play ProV1's, because of cost, or we lose too many balls! There are a lot of high cappers here, and we would like to know how our ball performs in your testing.

Yes! Please add Taylor Made Distance plus to this as well as the Kirkland.

Kinda random on my part but I would love to see a breakout of best high visibility golf balls. Your tour level balls probably won't come in this but us hackers that are 1/2 blind would love to know which high vis are best....haha.

I would say the most recent iterations of the Mizuno RB Tour and RB Tour X.  Those would be at the top of the list for me.  Also probably DTC offerings like Vice and Snell.

Mizuno ST200G driver, Diamana White stiff

Mizuno ST200 Tour Spoon 3 wood, Diamana White stiff

Titleist TSR 7 wood, stiff

Mizuno MP223 irons, 4-GW, Nippon Modus X-stiff
