PostSubject: Which golf ball you use ? list it down please   Sat Mar 10, 2012 12:24 pm

[img][/img]


I am still seeking the type of golf ball that suit my play. I had played with Titlelist Prov1, NST, DT Solo, Bridgestone e5, e6, e7, B330RX, B330RXS, Srixon Trispeed, Z-Star XV.

Recently, playing with Srixon Z-Star XV (Tour yellow). I like the yellow color when I address to the ball (maybe old man eyes .. "cannot see already"). This is the only ball that I felt it during impact. I am sure Prov1 is as good but I do not felt it. The other feeling was, this Z-star XV felt hard to me. The advantage was it is easier to find whether it is on fairway or rough.

Price may be on the high side. It will be great to have the same feeling with in lower price point. Looking for "the green, the cheap and the good" type. I knew there are number of website that help to select the best suitable ball but I felt it is all "BS". Sorry

Would you mind list the type of golf ball you prefer and played with below. I am trying to find the majorities golf ball that people like. I do not believe that it Prov1 as claimed to be all the time ?? or was it ?

Srixon Z star xv - yellow ... Almost always the only one in the foursome using a yellow ball, and therefore nice to spot it from a mile away! Ball performs really well too, and doesnt peel like titleist balls

Have played once with e new titleist nxt tour s (yellow) ... Doesnt spin as much, and costs around the same ... Glad i used a voucher to buy them

I have tried a few types, NXT Tour (old one), Burner, Pro v1, Srixon Softfeel and AD333. So far, NXT Tour gives me good distance, but I get better feel with Srixon AD333 and its cheaper too. Smile

No offence bro. It does not mean that I can afford new balls but I do find issue in using old balls. 2nd hand balls is sold along the street in front of every golf courses in Surabaya. You can buy 10 pcs of prov1 ball cheap.

However, it might look new and color is still bright but just after played them for couple of holes. It jut lose it color and I also felt those ball does not fly as good. I suspect, they have been in the pond for some time.

So far ad333 and top flite v2 gamer are the 2 best balls I have used ... v2 gamer gives distance and can bite the green .. ad333 is similar but seems to give me slightly longer distance ..

Hi Pak Slicer,

I found the Z-Star hard as well. Perhaps it is meant for faster swing speeds ...

Have tried many many balls, usually 2nd hand, those that I liked or worked well

Callaway Tour i(s)
Bridgestone e6
Titleist NXT

But my favourite ball still the B330RX ... dun know why, perhaps I am caught up in the marketing

Best bang for buck = TM Burner Tours!

You are correct Derek, in fact, my slow swing speed cannot really get the benefit out of the Z-Star ball.

Dun know why but I just like the feel. Maybe like to try the new Titleist NXT. They have yellow color too

B330RX for PAR4s and PAR5s (< 105 Mph)
B330RXS for PAR3 or used ball for island challenges (or i see water) (< 105 Mph)

Good budget balls comparing titlelist and Nike.

FYI >> http://www.bridgestonegolf.com/product/balls/tour-b330-rx

There is a ball fitting questionnaires.
Can play around with it.

Given a chance, I will buy lotsa e5 on malaysia golf courses if available.
My preference.

Losing a ProV is too painful for me.
(< 105 Mph) = That's me.
(> 105 Mph) = The ball will go to the jungle or become a submarine ball.
