Does anyone know if such a ball exists?



Thank you.

    Soft meaning the cover or the core?

    Unless you've got a secret stash of balatas, the One Platinum is about the best bet.

    This years Nike One Platinum. IMO, The best feeling ball since the first year the NOP came out. There are lots of balls out now that are soft with spin, but I really like this years platinum. ALOT.

    Really?



    I like both a lot, but the old one was almost too spinny from 80 yards and in. Great when you needed it, but it wasn't great when the wind picked up.

    For me, this years Platinum was a little shorter than the TP balls into the wind, but they spin so much (not excessive like last years HX Tour 56s) and are so soft off the putter, I'll give up a little bit of distance off the driver to have the control and feel on and around the greens that I get from the NOP.



    But then again, the TPs are by far the best into the wind ball I ever hit, so comparing any ball into the wind to the TP really isn't fair, but it definitely is not a huge chunk of noticeable distance like hitting the Tour 56s in the wind.

    I see. There's a couple courses I play where having enough spin to hold the greens is the difference between losing a couple shots. That's about the only time I play them.
