    I played the MTB Black last summer and fall; and deployed in December and thus no golf for six months. While I was deployed I decided that the MTB-X was going to be in my bag when I returned. I got back to the course the middle to end of July and was overjoyed with the results of the ball. I gained distance off the tee, and the feel for me around the green was exactly what I needed. Very consistent on short-game shots and would bite with mid to long irons into the green from distance. I don't have easy access to any Trackman or launch monitor to provide any tangible hard data, but I don't see myself playing another ball for the foreseeable future.

    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.

    How come you did not like the MTB red?

    Why do you need 16 dozen golf balls?

    That's my biggest issue with Snell. I need to order 5 dozen to really save on what I can get the Bridgestone BXS or Srixon Z-Star for. I don't think it's better than those balls (and it might be slightly less durable). 5 dozen would probably last me an entire year (or more depending on how often I play). I also live in a 900 square foot house and don't want to store more golf balls then I need. With those other two balls, I can simply set up Amazon to send me a dozen every other month and I save and extra 5-10% on them.

    I've long said that Snell's pricing is only really attractive to someone who's in the habit of paying retail at the golf course pro shop for his Titleist/Taylormade/Callaway/Bridgestone/Srixon balls. Snell is a bit of a premium priced option compared to the white-label models that tend to define the "DTC" space.

    The appeal of Snell balls comes from either really preferred his specific models, really wanted to support Dean himself or for whatever reason liking them enough to have some brand loyalty. The pricing is also attractive enough to be a bonus compared to buying other name brands at retail pricing.

    Snell has never been the choice of the brand-agnostic hardcore deal seeker. Those guys just haunt eBay and grab whatever's cheap in last year's model from whatever brand it happens to be. I suspect Dean is fine with not being the go-to brand for gimlet-eyed discount shoppers.

    Huh? I picked up some Bridgestone B X's at $35 a dozen cause I needed some balls... That's more than a Snell ball, and is poor planning on my part. Snell makes a ball that competes with other top balls. They are consistently priced at $30ish a dozen. You can get Srixon for $20 a dozen during BOGO and most major places do a buy 3 get 4 that come out to $33.75 a dozen... but you either need to buy a ton of balls, or have 4 dozen last a season.

    I think the Snell value model makes sense, and it's a great ball to boot. If money were no object, I'm not sure I'd switch away...

    It spun way too much for me off the driver and woods. Nothing like the MTB Black or now MTB-X.

    my son who just did a ball test-
    Subjective Observation -Pitch, Chip and Putt - Outdoors
    Data Driven -Full 60*, 7 Iron and driver. - Indoors on Trackman

    He says the MTB-X was his favorite/best performing by a small margin over the Z-Star XV, then reg ProV1, The ProV1X which he has played a lot in the past was his worst performer, but we are not talking about large variances either.

    I still think the ProV1x in yellow is my favorite ball, but Snell at their pricing makes it too hard to refuse. I do very much enjoy my MTB-X

    I've been playing the Snell MTB-X since the early part of June. Today I decided to try the Bridgestone Tour B X just because they are on sale for $ 34.99 a dozen. I've played the Tour B RX in the past and really like it, but I switched to the MTB-X because it was longer distance wise. I have gotten a few balls that went left or right without explanation, but all in all, the MTB-X has been a really great ball.

    I only played 9 holes with the Tour B X today but was pleasantly surprised. I didn't seem to lose any distance over the MTB-X. It felt a little different so it might take a few rounds to get used to that feel, but it was very comparable. This is a 9 hole course that I played on today and I've played it many, many times so I know how far I can hit off the driver and long irons. On one hole, I decided to hit an MTB-X in addition to the Tour B X that I was playing for the entire round. I just wanted to see how it compared distance wise. I hit the Tour B X a little left of the fairway so I didn't get much run out at all. I next hit the MTB-X and my playing partners thought I caught it a little better than the Tour B X. It landed in the fairway and ran what looked to be about 10 yards. When I got up to the Tour B X, I was really surprised to see that it was about 12 yards longer than the MTB-X.

    I'm going to play another round with the Tour B X tomorrow and see it performs as well. BTW, the feel off the putter was very pleasant and it seemed to roll just a little further than the MTB-X when struck with the same force. Anyone else compared these two balls?

    I'm actually gaming the B X for a dozen for the same reason... I needed some balls and didn't want to wait for them to be shipped. I think I prefer the MTB Black to the B X... but I wasn't swinging great yesterday. I'm planning on playing two balls today on the front nine, so I will compare them directly (kindof... I'm playing one ball aggressively and one ball conservatively and seeing what works best on my home course).

    I think my general overall conclusion is: Find a ball you like, and play it. All the balls perform differently, and it's less about finding the PERFECT golf ball than it is finding one that performs consistently on the course.

    I played through a dozen of the Bridgestone Tour BX and Tour BXS, at the time, I previously played Snell Red for about 6 months.
    I thought the Tour BX and BXS were very close in performance/feel with the edge going to the Tour BX for me.
    Then I compared vs Snell MTB-X. In the end I decided on Snell MTB-X, but would not complain if I went with the Tour BX.
    Both had a similar feel / results off the putter. I felt the MTB-X was a bit longer off the tee and it checked up/spun a bit more than the Tour BX on approach shots. Cost was a few bucks less than the Bridgestones - but that was more of a bonus than a driving factor.
    These two are really good competitors IMO - can't go wrong with either.
    Been playing the MTB-X for about 5 months now and have zero complaints, really enjoying them.

    Played a 2nd 9 holes with the Tour B X and I've decided that I will go back to the MTB-X. I don't think it is quite as long as the MTB-X and the previous comparison was an errant swing that left the MTB-X a little shorter. I think it comes down to feel off the wedges and irons. I really like the feeling I get when hitting the MTB-X compared to the B X. The B X is a much harsher feeling ball while the MTB-X just feels solid without feeling harsh. Putting is very close. Feel is pretty much the same and I could play with either one. Driver is about the same but the edge to the MTB-X using woods and hybrids. I could probably play the B X, but then why play a ball that is 2nd best. MTB-X is going back in the bag.

    Generally, MTB Black spins less but feels bit softer. Also, Black flies bit lower than X. If you need spin, you gotta go with X.

    Why do you need 16 dozen golf balls?

    >
    If you must know. I am stationed in Japan for the next 3 years. US brands are hard to find here or outrageously priced. I chose to buy that many balls because one I can afford it and two was to ensure that I don’t run out of balls while I’m out here. I also like to hand a sleeve or two out to people that want to try them after they see what I play and are curious as to what a Snell ball is. Did my answer satisfy your question?

    First of all, thank you for the service.

    I figure you had to hoard balls when I noticed your location in your profile.

    I know Big 5 has bought product in the past.. not sure if they are still selling them or are sold out... amazon also in CA has bought some and ship prime in day or two.. we also have free two day express shipping to CA as well... there are a few stores in the LA area that also have bought in the past as well...

    I was hoping BIg 5 resumes selling MTB's but I guess not.

    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.

    How come you did not like the MTB red?

    It spun way too much for me off the driver and woods. Nothing like the MTB Black or now MTB-X.

    That was one of the issues we had with the MTB RED ball.. The ball did have slightly higher driver spin, which makes the ball shorter for most players... That, combined with durability issues of the TPU cover, made us go back to the thermoset urethane cover.. we are able to make the covers thin, durable, and lower the driver spin.... as you may have seen from a lot of the testing reported, the MTB X ball is very fast in speed, the driver spin is low, and the ball is very long off the tee.

    Yes that is what I experienced with the MTB Red. You have more than overcome that with the MTB-X. great ball that wont be leaving my bag anytime soon. Thank you Dean for such a great ball!!!

    I got out on the course with the MTB-X for the first time last night. I like getting out and walking 9 after work with a buddy, beer in hand. So, it's casual and I'm not that focused on the details. But, I started noticing good things with this ball right away. First drive, like the others, was pretty high. But, it was also pretty long. Seemed like the ball launches high with little spin. With the irons the ball did exactly what I asked from it. Was able to work a fade from the rough (ahem...yeah. needed that once or twice). Hit a couple in low with spin, getting it to stop. Only had a couple short shots around the greens and it was fine. On my last hole my buddy had dropped off, my beer was empty and I got focused. This hole is a long, straight, narrow par 5 that looms on us. I decided to focus and put a good swing on the ball. Once again, off the driver it was pretty high...and just kept going and going. There are two fairway bunkers on the right side and they are well placed in my landing zone - normally. I've never been past them. This time I was right in the middle of the fairway, 21 paces past the bunkers.
    Lately I've been gaming the Srixons and in having a fondness with the XV I thought this ball would be good. It is. I have moved my driver ball position up lately and, given this trajectory, will ease it back a little again. Certainly sticking with this ball. And, I've been a small-business man in the past so I like to buy from Snell. Something about a guy who works hard to master his trade and kicks ****. And, the price is fantastic.

    Tested the X out for the past month and half and great ball but just too firm. Have been blown away by the TP5. Everything the MTB-X is but amazing feel.

    I've been playing the MBTX in place of the ProV1x, and I can't tell any difference. I played with a young guy that is going to the Korn Ferry Q School. He is a Titleist player, and he hit the Snell several times, and he thought it very similar to the Titleist. I play with our club champ three times per week, and a few weeks ago I gave him A MBTX, and he is switching from PROV1x to the MBTx, and ordered 5 dozen. I've been very happy with the Snell ball.

    I just ordered my test pack of Black and X. I liked Black when I played it last year, but because I love torturing myself in the spirit of finding the “perfect” ball, I spent most of this year testing different balls. When this shipment arrives it will be my first time playing MTB-X, which I’m excited to try out.

    thanks for the feedback...The MTB X has been testing quite well against all the major brands this year...and remember this design was based on feedback from a lot of players on this forum, so thanks for the support.

    The mtb-x is awesome. Decided to try some earlier this year and have been very satisfied. I've played mostly prov1 and prov1x. Like the feel of prov1 but I've liked that the x spins a little more and might be longer off the driver. I think the mtb-x is the best of both worlds. Long off the driver, spins as much as any ball I've played around the greens, and feels better than prov1x. Even if the prices were the same, I think I'd play the mtb-x over anything now.
