I'm in the process of finding my fav. balls.
So far I'm into Bridgestone e5/6 . Cos it's available in used balls basket. LOLz.

Wonder what's the most preferred. too bad the poll is only limited to 10 choices, hence just brands choices.

I have been using Srixon Softfeel for quite some time, when it first launch it was selling about $60 a box retail if I remember correctly, though I only play with used ones. The price has dropped since, at $26 Isetan sales.

I was told Srixon balls are made by Sumitomo, there is a brand called "Especio" which is exactly the same ball made by Sumitomo but OEM branded differently. Previous years Isetan sales used to carry them but not this year, when I play them they feel like the softfeel anyway.

The e5+ is a great ball. In fact, i am willing to stick out my neck to say it's the best 2-pc ball around. It gives you the distance off the tee, yet excellent control around the green due to the urethane cover (this is the only 2-pc ball using urethane cover).

That said, I am using TM TP Reds. Embarassed But if i m on a budget but still need new balls that perform, e5+ is the ball to go for.

I'm also trying to find a good ball which I can play with. So far, I like the Top Flite Gamers and Titleist NXT Extreme balls.

Taylormade balls seem to be getting little response.
How's TaylorMade TP red/ Black? Anyone using them?

Bro have you tried Maxfli Ice (the colourful balls)? GN used to sell it for $9.90 per dozen. You'll be surprised how far it will fly.

Really? I've not tried them. I get a decent lift with the NXTs. I get more control with Gamers. I'll try the Ice out if they are only $10 a pop Smile Thanks, WMF!

TM TP Red/Black balls are pretty good. I find their performance as good as Pro-V1x/V1. Then again this feel is personal.

I especially like TP Red. Gives me good distance off the tee, even into the wind, & great control around the green. I actually compared TP Red with some other brands into the wind - it didn't balloon & went further. Give it a try.

MC, not all of us have 120mph swing speeds like you Razz Mine seem to last awhile... that is before they dive into the water for a swim.

Talking about balls...
