Snell MTB Prime X (MGS Discount Offer)


Recommended Posts

Just received an email this morning for this special discount offer... crazy good price!!  Unfortunately they are only offering the Prime X (Prime would be a better match for me) but if the X fits your swing/ball speed and you haven't tried Dean Snell's offering before, it's a perfect time to do so.

My biggest problem is that Snell tried to fix something that wasn't broke - and he broke it.  The MTB series was fantastic and rivaled the top golf balls.

Then they redesigned them and now, according MGS Golf Ball Test, are some of the lowest performing balls and durability.  I understand that Snell lost their previous ball manufacturer, but consumers don't care.  If it doesn't perform, we won't buy it.  Now it seems like there's a fire sale to dump old stock.  With OnCore, Vice and Maxfli's outperforming Snell, sorry Dean.  I've moved on.  But, if you can get back to what you had...I'll be back in a heartbeat.  I loved the prior generation of Snell golf balls.

I just bought 2 dozen of them. I got an email offer for the same price on Super Bowl weekend. I hope they are comparable to the prior MTB X.

Wow, clearly I am way behind on the latest happenings with Snell golf balls.  I remember when his product first hit the market and how popular they were.  This explains the deep discount, thanks for sharing.

Had to redesign because he lost factory capacity when TM acquired Foremost. As well he had supply chain issues due to Covid so now his balls are are at two different plants. As an IE I understand why he’d do this. It is unfortunate that now his balls are cast instead instead of you urethane (or maybe I have that backwards) as that is where the quality issues came from.

I ended up getting 3 doz to share with my brother. From the MGS ball test the Prime X is a low spinning ball, which might help me because I tend to spin the ball a lot! I guess we'll find out!

I thought the old Snell balls were made in the Nassau facility that TM bought.  I think TM only has a partial stake in Foremost.

I picked up 5 dozen MTB Prime balls during the SB sale for $19.99 per dozen.  I hope they are like the MBT Black was.  If it's just a matter of cover durability it won't matter as my home course is a ball eater and I'm used to losing one or two during a round. 

At $20 per dozen I don't think I'm taking a huge risk on these.  Cover durability has been the only negative I've heard of with Prime.  I'll probably pick up a test pack of the new balls when they become available.

I'll be curious how these perform. For all that get them be sure to check back in and let us know!

Overall, I liked the Snell MTB Prime ball.  I got the same or slightly longer drives versus the OnCore Vero X1 and it proved to be great around the greens for me.  It was in play when I broke 80 for one of three times last year.  The only knock I have on it was the three dozen I got were from what they refer to is Batch #1.  I guess they had some manufacturing process issues that lead to a less than stellar cover durability issues.  Snell reported that process improvements have been made and the cover sheering problems rectified.  

Here's a MTB Prime ball after two or three rounds:

SnellBall.jpg.56db771816490b11a85935fe7771cc1f.jpg

Yes, it may have had an encounter with a cart path, but the lower scuffs were likely from my 70 mph iron swing speed!  My other go to balls (OnCore Vero x1 and Elixr, Maxfli Tour S and Srixon QStar Tour) do not exhibit that level of damage after twice that many rounds.  

I hope their process changes yielded improvement in their cover durability because I really liked this ball.  Once I'm through my stash of Maxfli Tour S balls, the remaining two dozen will go into my bag.

I'm curious to see how the 2024 models fair when they are released.

I tried a new Snell MTB Prime a few days ago.  The weather was crappy and low 40's so this isn't the best of conditions for testing but it worked fine.  The cover took abuse from trees and my golf clubs, it went as far as anything else I use and was a cut above the Bridgestone B RX I was also testing.

I'm glad I picked up 5 dozen during the superbowl sale @ $20 per dozen.  I'm saving the rest for nice weather.

I remember the first ball test and the MTB X came out as a surprise winner and it was downright fantastic.

However, since Covid, they've had to change plants where they manufacture the balls and the quality isn't quite where it was. I'm hoping that the newest iteration is good. https://mygolfspy.com/news-opinion/snell-mtb-prime-and-mtb-prime-x-golf-balls/

Dean Snell is top notch.

I really liked the MTB Black, it reminded me of the old TP series that I loved.
