A few questions on some new '08 balls as suggested by GolfBallSelector
A little confused.Hey guys,
I just headed back to GolfBallSelector.com since they updated their info. I filled out the info as usual, as accurate as posible.
Personally I've picked balls that are for higher spin players. That is to say I have to have my swing really 'on' to get my drives below 3K RPM. I also have an average driver swing speed. I do not really care about 'feel' in balls.
That being said, I naturally gravitated towards low spin driver "distance" oriented balls that still maintained respectable wedge spin. Right now my preferences have been '08 Nike One Black, '08 Taylormade TP Red, and the current TM V1x.
Now Selector.com says none of those balls should be in my top 5 considerations! And only one suites my top 10 considerations. Does this list make sense to a guy with my preferences? :
1 (100%) Bridgestone Tour B330s - Seriously? I thought this was for guys with wicked swing speed, and low spin???
2 (87%) TM '08 TP Black - I've been playing the '08 TP Red. I thought the black was for low spin players???
3 Srixon Z-URS - Nice feel, but I thought this wasn't much for distance last year so I didn't buy any this year.
4 Wison Zip - No idea about this ball.
5 Bridgestone E6+ - oddly enough the E6+ makes my top 5, however last year's version did not even make top 10. Weird.
6 Nike One Platinum '07 - The '08 version rates way lower on the list. Never would have guessed either model for a higher spin player and to rank higher than the '08 Black? I found this definitely surprising.
Down at #9 was the ProV1x which I like now. 10 was another Nike ball that beat out the NOB, the Nike Power Distance Soft '08.
So I thought this was a mixed bag. Am I wrong about the Bstone B330s? I was completely surprised about the NOP (07) as well. These suggestions surprised me so much, I retook the questionaire getting as accurate as I could, and decreased the 'Feel' category and eventually put the emphasis on distance, and then short game spin.... same results.
Anyway, I have been having fun experimenting with balls, surprisingly I've hardly lost any this year so at this point I'm just buying balls to test them. Any thoughts on my comments? Am I out to lunch on some of these balls?
