The ball that surprised me overall was the Bridgestone e5+. I currently play the last of my original B330-S and am willing to go the e5+ as a cheaper option.
I am looking at balls that still perform around the green. Here is my starter list for non premiums balls.
* Titleist NXT Tour 29.99
* Bridgestone e5+ $25
TaylorMade Burner TP $25
* Wilson Zip $20
* Callaway HX Hot Bite

How meaningful is the information, really? A machine with consistent swing speed and consistent angle of attack produces XYZ spin and launch numbers at 90 mph? The problem with those numbers is that I can take 5 different guys, all with 90 mph swing speeds but because of their angle of attack they put completely different spin rates and launch angles on the ball such that there could be as much as a 50 yard difference in the actual carry. So, what may look great (or bad) on that chart may be worthless for you. The NOP may be decent for one guy, but horrific for another, even though they have the same swing speed because their launch characteristics are so different.

I had the mag with the golf ball test and tossed by mistake. Can someone please post the spin rates for the 90ss balls.
Found the mag, wasn't tossed. Looking at the numbers, spin and distance for 90 ss, will give the wilson tx4 a shot.
