need new ball suggestions
For the past few months i've been playing (and losing) pro v1s. I'm an 18 hcp and right now the driver is easily my most inconsistent club. I can usually hit the ball around 270-280 when i catch it right, but my typical miss is anywhere from a slight push to a big, high slice. From 7 iron in i'm very comfortable, my swing plane is fairly upright so it lends it self to mid to short irons. I'm starting to think that the pro v1 may just have too much spin for my inconsistent long game, and could be aiding my slice.



I've hit a few cheap 2 piece balls and the slice seems to be less pronounced, but I hate the way they feel on and around the green. So i'm looking for suggestions, I'd like a reasonably priced ball w/ a bit less spin than the pro v, but still feels decent on the short game; i'm willing to sacrafice some distance for better accuracy. Appreciate any reccomendations!!!



thanks!

    Well i know you want a cheaper ball, but the ProVX is a great ball. If you go to a 2 piece you will hit it straighter and give up a lot of green-side feel and green-holding ability from the fairway, but will get that price reduction. I think the best of the hard balls is the NXT Tour, just my opinion.

    I also like the Pro V1X. But when I need less side spin, without losing distance, or when its cold and windy I like the DT solo and the Callaway HX Hot. I know the solo is for slower swing speeds but it just feels great ...even when chipping. FYI - these wont spin like the X on the short game...and not even close to the original Pro V...

    Try the Taylor made Burner TP ball or the Srixon AD 333.

    What are the main differences between the e5 and e6. I know the e6 is designed to be hit straight for people who tend to slice or hook, and I like the sound of that, but how soft is it? I have a pretty fast swing speed and don't want to be hitting a sponge.

    The E6 is average. Not bad, just not great. I agree that the V1X is still the all around best ball out there.

    e6 isn't a player's (sic) ball, it's for reducing side spin. e5+, much improved version of e5, 330 dimple pattern, urethane cover, long. Lots of peeps swtich since it's 20 to 25 a dozen instead of 42 to 45 like the new premiums are.

    The Top-Flite Gamer would be a very nice ball for you to try. Soft compression of 65 with a fairly soft cover that can hold greens and 3 piece construction....all for $14.99-$19.99 for a dozen. At those prices, wayward shots just don't seem to hurt as much. image/good.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':yes:' />

    I have played dozens of ProV's, Nike One's, and tried out the E6 just recently. I liked the ball very much and will probably continue to play it. I didn't try it out to reduce side spin...I hit a pretty straight ball and it's still pretty straight. In my opinion, it also has a soft feel on all shots. The ball cover is susceptible to full wedge shots though, so keep that in mind if it that type of thing bothers you.
