The latest review from golf digest.  Of course, their ratings are as useful as condoms in a convent but I did find an interesting chart: http://www.golfdigest.com/images/equipment/2014-05/eqsl32-hot-list-ball-spin-rate-chart.jpg

If I understand the chart correctly, it's the no-name (or less popular) brands such as Wilson, volvik and rife or even ineedtheball that give the best combination of lower driver spin and higher spin on wedge shots......interesting......

Thanks for sharing!

What's also interesting for me is the price points  Very Happy 

I found the 2013 edition (link below) useful when looking for good bargains on models that are on their way out / being replaced by the newest and latest (and priciest) products.

Those balls that appear right bottom corner are considered good, low spin on driver and high spin for wedges. Hope this helps.

It looks like a worthy ball ... Low driver spin and high wedge spin ... Best of both worlds ...  alien
