New DT Trusoft?

MinaretsMinarets Advanced Members Posts: 3,826 ✭✭
I have been listening to Michael breeds show on the radio, and the guest from Titleist says there is a new DTTS. He has not said when it is coming out but keeps referencing new DTTS. I just went on Twitter and found this picture from Titleist. Anyone with details? On the radio the Titleist rep mentioned new cover and new core

    I picked up 2 dozen of these on Sunday (I think they were put on the shelves early because of a Grand Opening of a ****'s Sporting Goods). Looking forward to playing them on Saturday.

    It is a great ball all your round in my opinion. I have played the yellow one I majority of my rounds this year. They hold greens just fine. Maybe I spin the ball more than most. Thefeel, the color, and the spin all meet my needs, wants, and expectations. I am excited to try the new ball. I hope it is an improvement that matches well with what I want.

    I like the feel of the TruSoft, particularly on the irons, but their yellow is the worst looking yellow of any golf ball out there. I realize they are purposely under-engineered so as no to compete with Titleist's higher-priced balls, but do they really have to under-engineer the color as well?

    Well they could put more money into it but then it would no longer cost $21.99 and defeat the purpose of having a low cost affordable ball on the market.

    I actually like the yellow. Q-star and SS are best 3 yellows out there for me. Looking forward to hearing your reviews boys, since it will probably be some time before the Great White North gets any?! image/sad.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />

    Kinda excited to try the new ones. I love the 2016 model, or whatever the all red box, outgoing model was. Loved the yellow and the feel. Thought distance was pretty good. I’m wondering if I’ll even see a difference in these new ones?

    So when you go to the paint store you wouldn't have an issue with them charging different prices for different shades of yellow because one shade of yellow costs more to produce? Please.

    The original DT Trusoft was one of the best 2 piece surlyn low compression balls on approach shots and around the green. I definitely will give the 2018 ball a try.

    Agree. I started using the DT this year after seeing a video review on the spin numbers. After playing them, I really liked them a lot and have no trouble stopping them on the greens, sometimes spinning them back. I will definitely give the new one's a shot, hopefully their improvement in the areas noted will make it even better. I switched over from using Srixon, both Q and Z stars, and Vice, and have been very satisfied with them, especially for $22 a dozen.

    Titleist sent me a sleeve of the 2018 model. They are definitely longer. Prior mode was my ball of choice after seeing Crossfield's evaluation and these will become their replacements. Great ball with a reasonable price.

    Tried the new DT TruSoft this week on the course and it is an awesome ball. Played it side by side with the previous model and it certainly does have a softer feel. I didnt see a huge difference in distance but I would give the edge to the new version.



    Im a believer and this will be my ball moving forward.

    Hoping to find out soon. I played the previous version, along with Ksig and Pro v1 2016 all year as well as Maxfli U6 Tour Soft. . The DT feels softer than all of them, which I prefer. Not as much spin, but plenty. I have spun these back on more occasions than I planned for. It’s my favorite value/ performance balls out right now. I hope the new one meets or surpasses those expectations, or I’ll load up on outgoing model

    I really like the TruSoft. I tend to spin the ball a lot so I struggle with controlling premium balls on approach shots. For me, the TruSoft never moves more that a foot or so from where it lands. It's not quite as "spinny" on a short pitch, but it's easy enough to compensate for that. I also really like the way it feels off of a milled putter. I've played with it exclusively for the last half of this season and have been pleased. I'll definitely try the new model.

    I always like the yellow on the NXT Tour S but the old DT solo and Trusoft yellow had a goldish tint to it which made it appear less bright than other yellow balls.

    Played the new ball yesterday and i will continue to purchase them. For the $$, I think it is a great ball.



    112 yard shot to an elevated green, spun the ball back 2', and. 175 yard 7 iron stopped within 1' past the divot. I do tend to be a high ball hitter.

    Played the new ball today. I can’t tell when the ball is on the ground that the color is any different. Up close I can definitely see a more pearl finish on the new ball.



    By not playing both balls side-by-side, I really could not tell any difference today in the feel. The ball still feels fantastic to me, as I love a soft golf ball. It may have been a little further. But I do not know that. Purely anecdotal. But my drives felt really good. I played a course I’m very familiar with, but unfortunately played tees that I’m not so familiar with.



    I found no reason to not continue to use the spa. The greens were very fast and I stop the ball just fine.

    I did not loose any yards in driving between the two. Feel its all TruSoft on irons, putters, Drivers, etc.


    Do find them to check up better when chipping and pitching? Also how are they for putting.

    I have been playing the Rush and looking for something a little better as I have improved about 5 points per round. Pro Vs and premium 3 pc balls tend to spin to much for me on irons and wedges.

    I’m a low ball chipper so while it checks a little not much. Pitching checks up more than the pinnacle rush but not like a Pro V1.

    Played the DT yesterday again, hadn't played for a couple of weeks. I really like this ball for the $$. The course we played has softer greens, but I find that the ball checks up well. I had a few iron shots with 6-8 irons that stopped within 1-2' if the divots and had some wedges that spun back. I tend to be more of a bump and run guy on chips and a low pitch shot when the shot allows, and I'm impressed with the spin I'm getting

    How does the new version compare to old one?

    The old DT Solo was always my go-to when on vacation or any other time I might need to buy a dozen of something at retail price because I didn't have my stash of cheap urethane balls. Cheap, predictable, seems about as long as anything and has a high-ish trajectory which I like. Fairly lacking in approach shot stooping power compared to a Tour ball and of course no grab on little 20-30 yard shots around the green. But decently contollable for a Surlyn ball.



    The last two rounds I've played a dozen or so holes with a DT TruSoft I found on the course. I've got to say, for my mediocre game it does a fairly creditable imitation of a ProV1 on driver and full iron shots. On a 7-iron or 8-iron to a very firm green, where a ProV1 might stop a 3-5 feet from its ballmark and something like an e6 or Duo might roll out 20+ feet, the TruSoft never rolled out more than 10 feet the couple times I tried it. That is excellent Surlyn performance.



    Certainly not magic. I've had a couple of 20 yard pitch shots scamper away from me in a way that almost never happens with a Tour ball. That doesn't surprise me. But I think the TruSoft is a worthy replacement for the last several generations of the late DT Solo.
    Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

    I have not played the new one but thought the last generation was an overall good ball. Soft, good distance but did not spin as much as a PRO V. I think a person can adjust fairly quickly. Looking forward to trying the new one.

    Just bc the word soft is in the name doesn't mean it is.

    New version is measurably firmer than last version, which succeeded the dt solos.

    Picked up the $6 4pack promo pack.

    It's pretty long tho, definitely moreso than last version. So tradeoff. But it doesn't smush off the driver anymore, and feels a little rock-ish on short pitches and chips. Putting not as hard weirdly, but could be my inserts.

    I didn't care for it, and I loved the last dt solo and liked the 1st gen trusoft.
