PostSubject: Golf Balls   Mon Jan 24, 2011 8:50 am

Hi Guys,

Just want to find out what type of golf balls are more popular.

Currently using DT-Solos and the occasional Pro-V1s (free from clients/events).

Previously using Callaway Iz-tour...


Pro-V1 seems best of the lot for me as it gives better control in the short game though lacking in distance. Another problem is its cost!

Any advice for a newbie golfer like me?

I am using the Taylormade Burner Tour which is a 3 layer ball and feel is quite good, much cheaper than Pro V/V1.

Bridgestone e6+/e7+ is good too, now selling $49 per dozen.

But I feel Taylormade gives me longer distance than the Bridgestone's offering, including their new BX-330 series.

Pro V1s are for seasoned beginners... So if you are one, stick with it... Real beginners go for 50cts balls

Golf direct (Kaki Bukit) got an unknown Taylormade series (Taylormade XD), I think $19 per dozen, $90 for 5 dozens.

Pretty much as Noodle, cheap and good, value for money! Hit into hazards also not so heart pain... Crying or Very sad

Yes, was using TM TP Black LDP until TM stopped production, had replaced it with TM Burner Tour. Not much of a difference, feel and cost. Last I saw, there's a golf shop at Far East still stocking up the TP Black. Can't remember the name of the shop but it's on the opposite side from Greenfield, near to a sports pub.

Heh, I've stocked up about 100+ balls at home of TP Red. I'm not good enough to use new ones, so it's 2nd hand for me Smile

I personally like the feel of Pro V1 and Taylormade Pentas but find that I lose some distance with these two balls compared to some others I have used.

I uses Srixon Softfeel. Being a beginner, it works for me. Anyway, Dont know how to spin ball back at green. They are selling at Isetan at $26/dozen, buy 4 dozen, give one free.

I'm using bridgestone e6+ balls currently. I like the arrow logo marking on the ball, helps me to line up the putt pretty well. And I dunno if it's psychological or wat, I tend to lose lesser balls when using e6+ balls, prob cos at the back of mind I'm thinking this ball will not slice/hook too much haha..

Last weekend, picked up a pro v1x while playing at mbgc and the ball performed well too! Now tempted to change to pro v1x..

I'm using Wilson smartcore (distance?) currently till I lose them all probably during my next game.

I like them because 3 boxes for $48.
Hard little rocks; need to cater for a bit more release and run when chipping... but at that price...cannot complain too much..

lynx prowler - cheap and good
mizuno d201 - good shiny look
bridgestone e6 - overated to me
bridgestone e5 - better stick with this than e6, cheaper
titliest pro v1x - good but placeabo effect of fakes works too
srizon ad333 - not bad at all
penta tp - lucky i got it free, can't feel 5 pc effect
range balls - use these for your impossible shots (ya, don't take them for personal use)
lynx crystal cat - ladies ball but don't underestimate it
