    I would just say the opposite. The yellow are super durable, I feel.

    I have really fell in love with the X's
    At first I didn't care for the feel off my 410's. I stuck with them and that feeling is gone.

    For those that play the X (in both yellow and white)... do you notice that the cover on the yellow version is less durable than the white? My yellows scuff pretty easily and am wondering if the white is any more durable, as I've seen stated somewhere.

    I'd Agree with that....

    The same experience with Yellow Black. But I think it is paint/coating off. I do not see issue in performance.

    I ordered the yellow Black/X test pack when they were first released and I noticed the yellow seemed to to chip off on the X. I played the original MTB and Black (both in white) since they were released and durability was always excellent. I purchased a dozen of the White X a few weeks ago and the durability was excellent on those as well.

    So do you think it's a paint thing on the yellow moreso than damage to the actual urethane underneath?

    Paint thing, imp. My yellows have held up nicely, however did see a little chip after a couple of rounds and bunker shots. Not big or noticeable, but it was there.

    I love the color of Dean's yellow. However, I love the look of Srixon's with the clear cost gloss look.

    To me it looked like a paint issue, not a cover issue.

    Not sure if I can credit the ball exclusively, but I had a personal best four birdies yesterday.
    Two of them were full swings that stopped and hopped within two feet of the hole.
    The other two were good putts.

    I seem to play the black better than the X. I do notice the decrease of green side spin a bit with the black, but it’s a small sacrifice compared to my driver mishits with the MTB-X. I feel like they hyper slice when I’m having a bad day with the driver. Both seem to fly long when struck properly.

    That is what has worried me about possibly switching to the X because I really love the MTB Black. And I still have 2+ dozen left, but I went ahead and ordered a box of the X to try them out so that I know which ball I will get on my next 5 dozen order.

    Absolutely worth trying out, some people love them. I’m not a big fan of the sound/feel with the X’s either. I seem to fall more in the Black/Z-Star/ProV1 crowd.

    I'm really loving the MTB-X! Seriously, I have never tried a premium ball so durable as the Snell X. 2 and a half rounds with same ball and looks like I played 5 holes with it (for reference, I pretty much have tried all of the X-type balls in the market. Performance wise? Distance is crazy (same as the Bridgestone Tour XB) and spin is insane on the greens (was spinning some wedges like crazy yesterday, some even 12+ feet) and pitches stop dead on the spot almost. Then you add the lower price and this is a deadly combo for sure.

    Right now is between MTB-X and Tour BX as my ball of choice.

    This is making me rethink my dedication to the Black... again. Sigh.

    The Tour BX was my favorite ball of the season... I'm playing the black right now... still have some to get through... might pull the trigger on the X next time around. We shall see.

    Please do, you will most likely be so glad you tried the X : ) I have a dozen balls of ALL premium brands at my house (including the X and the "Regular" so I still have like 10 dozen there but after that, there is a high chance I will default to MTB-X.

    The MTB X is what I started my season with... but it was early in the season and now I don't feel like I gave them the proper chance!
    The blacks play great for me, though. I think the only thing that could possibly kick them out of the bag is a tremendous deal on the B X or the MTB-X out performing them.

    My season is coming to an end, though... so maybe I'll just wait until next spring.

    i wanted to like the MTB X but just didnt get along with it. Maybe I'm more of a fit for the Black. Had a good test this weekend in a 2-Man as it was a little cooler and windy. The X just seemed to spin too much off of the driver for me. I believe it's a good ball for sure just not a good fit for me. May order some Blacks and give them another go.

    They definitely don’t feel the same but I really couldn’t see much difference in results. Both spun fine in the short game. Both seemed long enough off the driver.

    There should not be much difference in the two models when you are close to the green... both have soft cast urethane covers and firm mantles behind the cover to create the short game "check" spin.. on longer shots, like 8, 9, pw, and AW type shots, the MTB X balls should have higher spin into the greens for these shots... off the driver, both will be lower spin, fast ball speeds and long...

    I switched to Snells with the original MTB. I now have 8 dozen of the MTB Black and 8 dozen of the MTB-X. I have 4 in white and 4 in yellow of each. I play the MTB-X on firm greens and the MTB Black on soft greens. I am so in love with the Snell Golf Balls that I dont look at another brand. I still have 2 dozen of the second iteration of the MTB. I have had about 6 of my golf buddies make the switch and have had people I get paired up with when I go out alone buy some and love them. I have my only hole in one with MTB Black. The only Snell ball that did not like was the MTB Red and Dean has made up for it with the MTB-X.
