    Has anyone compared the RZN Platinum to the '17 Z Star ... trying to figure out which one to stock up on.

    Personal preference but they really aren't the same for me. Z-Star may have a tad more bite on the greens but RZN Tour Plantinum is the ball I am loading up on. Like it so much I am going to sell all 8 dozen of my Ksigs.

    FYI my Nike Factory store had RZN Black Volt (not Tour Black) for $7.97, plus another 30% off. Unfortunately, someone cleaned them out before I got there and there was only 1 single dozen left. Oh well, not like I need any more balls anyways lol.

    My factory store by me says they havent gotten any balls in a year or so but to check a different nike store in the area that isnt an outlet store.

    I have played both, and you cannot go wrong with either. I agree that Zstars are maybe a bit better on the green. Platinums are a touch firmer and slightly prefer the feel, but both great. I would go with the Z stars personally at this point just because you will be able to find them, but as far as performance you cannot go wrong with either.

    Yes both are great. As far as running out of inventory, Roger Dunn told me they bought over 3000 dozen of the RZN Platinum and have plenty left. They do not sell dozens , but sleeves for $4.99. I already have 4 dozen and am seriously considering getting 4 more.. that should keep me good for the rest of 2017.

    A course near me is selling RZN Prototypes for $30 a dozen. Might have to get 1 or 12.

    I really did like the RZN Tour Black, and wanted to like the platinum, but those balls were done after one wedge. By far the least durable ball I've ever played.

    I'm sitting on 15 dozen at the moment. Have about 2 dozen Project As to go through before I can get to them. Looking forward to finally playing them after a few months of looking at the box.

    Haha glad I'm not alone.



    I'm up to nine dozen. One guy in town is buying up the tour plats and white tour blacks, luckily I play the volt color almost exclusively so I have scooped those up.



    I play 80-100 rounds a season so I'm not sure how much I'll have overall, but I will be stocked up for at least 1-2 seasons if I use other balls for less important rounds.



    In my small town there are only two places that sell them, so the one guy at the till told me its me and one other fan buying them all up. At least he's not stepping on my turf and leaving me the ones I like, LOL.

    Last week I was by myself and tee'd off with a 2016 plat and a 2015 volt black and the black went at least 10 yards further each hole. One hole I hit a perfect draw with the plat and a double cross fade with the black. I thought the plat would have won by a few yards but the black was still 13 yards ahead.



    The distance is great and the greenside spin is amazing with the black. I struggle to see why the plat is so popular.

    Was this recently at the edwin watts outlet on I-drive in Orlando? I'll go tommorow if so. The Nike outlet on I-drive unfortunately has no balls right now but the clearance store has them.

    Now that I'm thinking about it, it wasn't at the outlet, it was at the regular Edwin Watts on the other side of I-4, on an end cap up front near the registers. They had all three aluminum sleeve colors (red, blue, silver) but they're all Platinum balls. The balls have the Olympic Rings logo on them too.

    Tempted to buy a load of these as there's a good deal on the Nike UK website.



    Only thing is I've never tried them so it's a bit of a risk. And I'm not sure on whether to go for Platinum or Black.



    I have a fairly high SS, and hit the ball a bit too high with my irons with too much spin.



    I'm guessing the Black would be better?




    My driver swing speed is at 109 with a very high ball flight and with my irons, i have the same problem as you. I'd spin my approach shots off the green if it's in the front . I've tried the black and the platinum and have put the platinum in my bag with great results. Played the platinums for two years and they worked great.

    Same here...

    ...tried the Tour Black in yellow.



    A really great ball, as long as you don´t hit it with a wedge...

    ...one wedge shot, and they are done.

    I finally got a chance to try the Platinums on the course a couple weeks ago. It was my 1st rd in 7mths so while there was some ugly swings, overall I liked the ball. I tried the new Srixon XV and the Snell MTB as well, did NOT care for the XV at all. It was too firm for my liking. The MTB is a VERY nice ball!! I bought 10 sleeves of the Nikes at $4.00ea so those will be my early season ball.

    So I already had 5 dozen but was able to pick up 4 more dozen for $19.96 ea. The only thing is I get home and open up the sleeves and they all have weird logos. No notice on the boxes and not worth my time to drive back to that store to return.



    Has anyone else seen these?
