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


Currently a Callaway HX Bite - cheap. Better golf balls are very expensive in Singapore. A box of NXT are $62. Plus I have a swing speed of a 12 year old girl (no offense to any 12 year old girls on the forum).

smallhorse/derek

do you see a big difference in spin (around the greens) between B330RX and B330RXS? Bstone seem to show a whole lot of diff between the two on their marketing info.

I have been using Golfdirect's Penta the last couple of months and now running out of stock. so I thot brand new B330 at $50 is a good deal

Yup... Tri-speeds give better feel around/on the greens than the Burner Tours.. but more expensive based on my current stock...

Used to. Pretty good golf balls to play. A bit too much spin for my liking but I used the original Gamer version - I think there's a v2 or v3 out now.

Do Try it. It's having a promotion now.
To answer your question, small difference. Around the fringe, I do not play spin much, I just want it to go near.. lol

Bought slazenger balls for 50cts each. Wanted to upgrade to new balls from second hand but wont feel pinch if drop into water. Bgt 5boxes of 15. Until today still havent used half of 1st box.

Didnt know my skill improved so much. Regretted buy so many cos now i feel ready to upgrade to even better balls.

ProV1 or ProV1x depending on course layout and green condition, whether I want more control, more bite, or more distance. The two are close enough in feel so that it won't screw up my putting feel. But if I'm playing some cheap crappy course where they don't cut the blardy rough and the caddies are short sighted, NXT Tour.

On a really punishing course, when I lose a ball I usually find a few other balls in the rough. I will play whatever balls I find until I lose them all before I take another new ball from my bag. Really helps to save money.

I find expensive balls to be the cheapest in the long run. How? It's painful to lose them, so I am 'encouraged' to improve my accuracy by plenty of practice. Now, ball lost count per round is down to zero or low single digit. If only that is matched by my handicap...

Dunlop Ti Control.

Was using DDH Ti before and found that the Ti Control has better putting and chipping feel.

Normally,

- Titlesist and Callaway for competition or bets

Still have about 12 boxes of balls of different brands sitting around Very Happy

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.

Slicer, my experience with buying from Indonesian vendors were extremely bad. I think it is industrial practice over there to blanco their used branded balls like Pro Vs. Then they packed it in shiny plastic bags tightened tightly with rubber band so that you couldn't be bother to open it up to checked. I bought about 5 times from them and from different vendors and all experienced the same conditioning. Now I understand why they lose its colors pretty quick. Those I bought from My Golf Shop does not have this problems at all. Telling from my experiencs

Tituman,

Yes, I am sure you are correct regarding those 2nd hand ball Indonesian vendor. Next time, if you really need to buy some from them, do not buy those that already packed in a plastic bags but rather ask to select. They will bring out balls in same brand (usually Prov1). You can select & buy whatever qty you like. Of course, the prices will be slight higher than those packed into the plastic pack.

At least you can just buy the qty you need for the day and you can pick the condition of the balls too. Last, remember to bargain.

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.

smallhorse

You mean that you will carry B330RX and B330RXS balls to play your rounds for par 3 and 4 & 5 ?

its the most used ball ON tour. and do note that those people dont have to buy their own balls. its all free.

can i assume that if the poll change to "what ball would u use if you didnt have to pay for it?",

95% will go for pro v1 or pro v1x

agreed?

I played ProV1(x) for a few rounds. The short game feel is awesome.

Went back to Ti Control cuz i think its comparable to ProV1(x) for me.
