Noticeably less spin on the driver and more spin on the scoring irons. Q: Why did you choose to use a robot for the ball test? Q:  If the cover of my ball is damaged, will it affect performance? Join available games, or create your own and let other golfers join your games through Deemples. I played a Blue recently and on the second hole I went to mark the ball and found that the cover was severely damaged and I could literally peel it off the ball. The one piece of advise that we all ought to agree on is stick with one ball and learn how it performs. What we settled on…. These golf balls are best known for its two salient features. Maybe he just likes the feel lol. Hybrids are to fill a specific yardage gap, consistently and accurately, yet the club that fit that criteria did not win, the longest one did, even with all the rhetoric that overall distance shouldn’t be a factor in selecting a hybrid. A: In high-speed driver testing, several balls produced shots more than 20 yards or more offline. I believe it’s rated poor because as I look through the review there appeared to be problems with consistency among Cut balls – as well as being very easy to cut (no pun intended) with a wedge. I lost a bit of confidence in the vice pp when I played 2 balls practicing against the pv. 2015? Also, check out “Golf Shops in Malaysia You Need to Know”. You don’t need a low compression ball. There are far too many offerings (robot testing is expensive and time-consuming) and (also bluntly) the only real argument for playing them is cost, but given the rise of lower cost DTC urethane offerings, playing two-piece doesn’t make much sense. My second swing was just about the same and a little less as I got 205. Then they usually farm it out to an independent test site to back them up just to take out any potential bias, conditional influences or anything else that may be skewing the results. Lots of good information. At Fair, we don’t think the performance is competitive AND there are consistency red flags Inesis 900 came out on top. Item #6 seems very important since golf is hard!? Can you clarify? Granted sinking the putts is still required to see better scores. They also don’t have the harsh sound and feel on mishits that a harder compression ball has. Thanks. Notable standouts for distance include the. Based on the DISTANCE numbers my guy needs to play prov1-x, I agree that’s the problem. what color is best for finding balls in thick rough??? awesome. With RXS, it was a combination of the distance and spin characteristics along with some inconsistencies as reflected in the standard deviation numbers. So for my personal results were more inline with Titleist. I think you should return them to Costco and get your money back. All the balls have the same number Hey Vast, would you do us all a favor? Wow this is an amazing test !! Golf is intimidating enough, where it’s tough for golf newbies to find out where to go, what to buy, what to bring, who to go with, what to wear, etc. It has been constructed in such a way that its performance is delivered equally. According to the “RAW DATA” laid out in the My Golf Spy Tables, the Maxfli Tour is fast for its compression rating—especially for us 85 MPH Swingers. This must be one of the best tests of golf equipment…ever. My experience was completely different than yours. Being able to run into Dick’s and grab 2 boxes for $53 is a huge plus. Why is this the big question to ask? As it stands the MTBX still had the worst driver offline data, normalizing -5yds to the new zero reference doesn’t change that. While some pros do play the retail ball (Tiger’s Tour B XS is the same as what’s on shelves), nearly every manufacturer has a secret menu’s worth of tour-only balls available to its professional staff. So this is where the “Aha Moment” happened. We suggest you commit to a ball and take advantage of the savings. If look at the article with Dean Snell and what Titleist said when they made their yellow ball they both said that to make a yellow urethane was difficult to do correctly. There’s quite a bit of difference when it comes to who makes what and where. Most of what’s in my bag is what I find at my course. Been around for decades. I so wish you would have included data from a 100 MPH driver swing speed. when struck perfectly by the club face takes another variable out of your golf game, don’t you think. Many of the smaller brands are a step further removed from the process in that they’ve played minimal to no role in the design but instead have purchased and branded a white label factory ball. It’s reflected in the data, and it’s something golfers should consider. 80 MPH Driver That’s probably not you.”. Is the structural integrity of your living room wall dependent on what color you painted it? The general interpretation that MGS seems to have made is that low compression balls are a detriment to performance, even for the 85 mph SS. I learned a lot from reading your testing. My miss is generally a slice, so I try to mitigate that as much as possible by playing a lower spinning ball (staying near the hole im playing generally benefits me more in a round than a few extra RPMs around the greens). i’m wondering the same thing, My driver swing speed is around 90-92. It’s not so much the averages as it is the standard deviations. It’s almost amusing that so many have pushed back as if there’s some chance we could be wrong, where the quiet response from the ball guys we’ve spoken with as well as others in the industry who have tested balls is the equivalent of “Thanks, Captain Obvious”. Focus on lowest spin and offline puts you in the QStar Tour. No different than what TaylorMade is doing this year with regards to the injected “twist face” and being able to manufacture all drivers at the limit. With a name like Skip Kendall you should be able to hit a broom stick better than most mortals. With swing speeds not as fast as an adult, would selecting a ball from the top two quality categories still be the best to start with? Since the pros are paid to play a certain ball, you see TV commercials with pro endorsements, advertising, and marketing which raises the price of golf balls. Thanks. Plus Dean snell is a legend! Anybody with knowledge of testing (specifically ball testing) and basic critical thinking skills should be able to understand as much. Launch, spin, and speed vary significantly between ball models, and that means there’s an integral link between ball performance and club performance. In other sports, like golf, players can pick their favorite brand and model of ball, so long as it conforms to the general rules of the game. It’s not the same as the CSX white, CSX Truvis, etc.. But the reason behind this statement will be unbeatable. I wont go into the maths of the standard deviation but its basically a measure of consistency. I thought the same. Great data and lots of good visuals to consider… it will take some time to sort through it all for me. The data set is up to each individual reader at access which ball they think has the data they like or feel is best in their mind. Wow! Curious, might you have the “total distance” with roll out based on spin? The b xs is straighter and longer than the b x, for me. Callaway hasn’t brought any massive change in making of this He is the designer of the original Pro V1…..which is why his balls do compare…often favorably in performance and they are generally $12 less per dozen….if you buy in bulk. Why? Bonus is they are cheaper than Titleist, can’t see changing any time soon. It’s a light year ahead of what’s been available to the public until now. We can’t know exactly how prevalent the issue is but obviously, it raises some questions. Dick’s is on the verge of making a real dent in the avid golfer market. Many thanks to the MGS crew for putting this out. Flight accuracy is the top priority for a golf ball in my opinion, but obviously it’s not in your opinion. What I meant to say was I would NOT give up feel for 8 or 10 yards. “We get that some of you love soft feel, but the reality is that the only golfers likely to see real performance benefits from low compression balls are high speed, high spin players. Did they retract this? Seems like most of my clubs, i get really high peak heights and may be sacrificing some distance because of it. AVX took down my peak height and spin with the driver and every other club. Walter, most of my testing was done using my 2017 Taylormade M2 driver. I promise I don’t work for Taylormade. From my crunching of the numbers I find Bridgestone Tour B XS and Vice Pro, followed by Titleist Pro V1x and Srixon ZStar to be notably accurate. The launch and spin chart should prove particularly useful for those of you looking to identify something that might perform better for you than what you’re currently playing. Forget the tour pros, don’t try to relate my game to theirs and work on being a better amateur. I just hope their quality control is in order where I don’t get consistent performance. With my new AP3s, and soon to be ProV1s, my game is mine again. Here they actually disprove that low speed stuff with greater distances in the longer irons. Wanna know how I know that this is a comprehensive, unbiased & well presented report? My off target hits and distance improved when I stopped using these balls. Just one minor ding, but certainly nothing that would take it out of my consideration set. Slower swing speeds need spin to maximize distance as backspin provides lift and allows the ball to stay in the air longer. If the bottom line comes down to GO GET FITTED, then what’s the point in any of these tests? I have a box each of TP5x, Mizuno RB tour X and Honma 6Piece balls waiting to try them out in the next month or so. I went on my own best ball hunt for going on roughly 3 years now(since Nike stopped making balls). Switched mid-round to the Bridgestone Tour B RXS and immediately started getting my 240 again. Maybe I should still be playing something similar to those balls, even with my diminished clubhead speed? Feel over performance? Last but not least , at 2 dozen for $50—it rates very highly on the “Cheap Bastard Scale” which measures dollar spent vs performance gained. I notice an awful lot of Snell Golf ads here.
