    Titalist tour soft. Used to use Calloway chromsoft but don’t like the new ones. I like to try what’s new each year then stay with it. I don’t loose too many balls so it really doesn’t matter what they cost. 15.5 Handicap.

    I have been bouncing back and forth between the Z Star and the QST. On a good driving day I love the Z star, but on "off" day I prefer the QST because the lower compression keeps me a little less sideways from spin on my drives.

    My favorite urethane ball is the Wilson Staff FG Tour. Budget Golf had the 2014 version for $24 per dozen for a short while and then jacked the price up to $32. Still a decent price.

    Flash sale right now with BOGO on Gamers under $8 per dozen until 10:00 pm. Prior year Chromesoft under $30 per dozen too.

    I just buy whatever premium urethane ball is on sale for a great price. I bought 5 dozen B330S balls for $20/dzn over the winter. I think they're 2 model-years old, but it doesn't really matter to me.

    Received a mailer today, MG has Chromesoft Speed and one other similar ball at 20 bucks. Not bad for new urethane. Wonder how they get their hands on it.

    I always found them too soft. Have you tried the new Wilson Soft Spin?

    Been trying out the Duo Optix so far this year. I like the performance and feel but if you're choosing a color and caught between yellow and green, go with the green. Night and day visibility difference. The yellows were hard to follow and was even losing them in the grass if there's any dandelions around. The green is a whole different story...I can see that one a couple hundred yards away.<br />
    Have some of this years models Snell MTBs to try out as well but haven't pulled them out yet. Bought a sampler pack of the red and black so we'll see how they compare to last years.

    If you like the Duo Optix, I noticed Academy Sports has the Green TM Noodle. Is the Optix very soft like the regular DUO or does it have some firmness. I do like the green colors.

    I’ve got dozens of urethane Zstars, Pro Vs and Kirkland’s in the stash but I’m committed to playing Gamer Softs exclusively to see if playing just one ball improves overall play. I started using the GS as a winter ball and loved it. Shot a personal best of even par with it this spring. They’ve performed so well, I probably won’t switch back to urethane until my 8 dozen GS are depleted.

    The 3 piece Callaway Super Hot Bold Red is working great for my game. Not bad at $29 for 15 packs.

    I bought 100 Prov1/x AAA lake balls for a great price. Ive used them through April and May.<br />
    <br />
    I enjoy variety so Ive also used Wilson DX2, Toursoft, Trusoft, Callaway and Srixon softs etc. <br />
    <br />
    Findings. All are great balls, none make any difference at all to my game, the best feeling around the green are actually Dx2 at 28 lbs compression.<br />
    <br />
    Im likely to play ProV at the price I got them, and various "softs" from anybody. I don't expect any to change my game.

    If you're playing best ball, go gamer soft or D2 off the tee. Then go project A for approaches and putting.

    I called it the Duo Optix but the actual name is the Duo Soft Optix so yeah, it's pretty soft. Haven't played the regular DUO in a long time so I couldn't say for sure but I'm guessing yes it's softer.

    I keep coming back to the E6 speed. It might be a placebo effect, but the do fly straighter for me than anything else. Easier to adjust the short game for more rollout than it is to claw back stroke after hitting a Drive OB.

    Went with the D2 Straight. Only lost one off the tee due to a bad pull into a tree near a hazard. Have new wedges that really scuff the cover. I think that would happen to any ball.<br />
    <br />
    Greens were really slow. Made one long birdie putt, but a lot of putts were left short. More spin may have helped on a couple iron shots. We were 6 or 8 shots out of the prize money so it wasn't the ball. Tournament was kind of rigged when you had some older guys who hit it long playing gold tees so they were 30 to 50 yds ahead of us playing their second shot.<br />

    My Target had the E6 for something like 21.99 so I’ve been picking them up every so often. I also use the last gen version of the chrome soft.
