Well guess we will see how this stacks up against the TP5X.

    It looks like Snell MTB Red. As much as I am excited about Mizuno's new balls, I am not excited about the shine. For me, it looks cheap.



    For the price point as $43/dozen, I am not sure I would pay for the full price. IMO, Mizuno should do something Srixon has done for year; giving away at cost for the intro period like a sleeve for $10.



    Lastly, I wonder who makes the balls for Mizuno.

    Well. Hit it a couple of times with the driver today. It is too low launching for me. Much lower than the TP5X. Wish I had the x version to try, but I did not. Cover is very soft. Didn’t hit any iron shots or pitches with it, so can’t talk about durability and spin. I ended up giving both to my buddy.

    Above post just a joke obviously, but it might actually be true. There are only a couple of companies that have the "real" resources to make a decent golf ball from the ground up. Those tend to be big huge rubber companies from Japan, Bridgestone and SRI. My opinion is that I have played the Srixon ball for the last several years, AD333, loved it maybe a slight to soft, the short stint the z-star sl which I thought that was going to be my ball forever until they stopped making them. Then went into the Z star category, and haven't looked back. The Z Star ball is the best all around for the money period. It does everything very well for my game. Not to hard, not too soft, just right on target for feel and reliability. Since I can buy some from last year's generation for half the cost, it's all good. Nobody can argue the durability of these things either, they've got that niche covered.

    got a sample of the RB tour X at the show, in hand the ball does look cheap, dimples seem like an old nike pattern and the shine was hard to believe it was urethane. chipped and putted a few and it does feel great though. will put it in play this week.

    Played 18 with the Tour X version today. Felt good and did everything every other premium ball did/does. No better, no worse. Won't put it in play over the Pro V1x that I currently play but it wouldn't bother me to play it. But I can that say about most any premium ball.

    I thoroughly enjoyed testing both balls. I preferred the RB Tour over the X because I could flight the ball much better. My trajectory window has always been lower than most and this ball put me right in my window.



    I also had no trouble stopping the ball on the greens. I play an AVX now so I am not looking for "maximum" spin, but for controlled spin. I want to be in total control of my golf ball at all times. At least feel like I am anyway image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Mizzy really coming in hard in 2019. They already had a solid iron line up, but their woods have been getting positive reviews and I think the new ball will be intriguing enough for a lot of people to want to try out.
  • Song DogSong Dog Advanced Members Posts: 89 ✭✭
    Coachemup, what other things did you experience between the 2?
  • coachemupcoachemup Advanced Members Posts: 362 ✭✭
    Song Dog,



    Posters in another thread posted about losing distance with the X. I do not know their swing speeds, but I didn't lose any distance with either of these balls. Didn't gain any, but didn't lose any. The X was a nice high flight and carried further than the regular tour, but both balls ended up with in a few feet of each other.



    On pitches, I play low skipping shots which take a couple of bounces and stop. The tour came out low and did exactly what it supposed to do. The X came off a little higher, carried a touch farther, and had a tendency to roll a few feet after the last bounce. It wasn't bad at all and is something I could get used to if I wanted to. Just not the style of shot I like to play.



    On full wedges (I hit 3/4) the tour once again had a lower trajectory, took a skip and stopped a few feet from the pitch mark. The X had a touch higher trajectory and stopped upon landing with a slight draw back. I don't have the speed anymore to make the ball zip back, so I don't use that as a judge when I am grading a golf ball



    Both balls feel very good and perform well. What it boils down to is matching your golf ball to your style of play.



    This coming Sunday, I will be testing the ERC ball from Callaway. Kinda looking forward to this test to see what the new cover is all about.

    My son was given a few sleeves from the local Mizuno rep Thursday. He played with them yesterday ( RB Tour ). He loved them he normslly plays the avx. Good distance off the tee. He liked the spin going into the greens. He’s a 5 handicap swing speed 100. He’s going to put these into play in a tournament tomorrow so we will see.

    As much as I love their clubs, no excitement at all for the ball. On a launch monitor, no gains with the RB and was a club shorter with the RBx. Maybe on-course results will be different, but hopefully they don't become a liability for Mizuno, especially if they aren't a hit on the Tour. So many good balls out there for less than $30, seems just silly to be paying over $40 for some.

    I was able to hit the Tour yesterday. I'm not a high spinner but with my 9I I was able to stop it on a dime. The feel at contact was or the best way to describe it, like a QSTour. It was high and long with my other clubs. Part of me thinks to just play it and not worry about the X but still need to tickle my fancy by trying it.

    Played both versions of the ball today. Just a side note I'm not very sensitive golf ball performance other than feel and spin around the greens. Spin around the greens was great considering conditions were pretty firm and feel with the putter wasn't an issue either. The 10-15 mph wind didn't throw the ball around which is nice. One thing I noticed was I could hear the mizuno's flying through the air more than any other ball I've ever played. Was it the spin or dimples, who knows.



    One more thing, these are made in the same factory the nike balls were made in and retail is going to be $45.

    Wondering which factory that is? Nike were made by Bridgestone, which uses different factories. Are you talking about the Japanese Factory which makes the Bridgestone Tour XS?

    Just curious which country it says on the box.

    How did the RB Tour play?



    I’m less concerned about what a ball looks like in hand and more interested in performance. The only thing that turns me off about a ball these days is a noticeable seam. In this day and age, there’s no reason for a noticeable seam.

    Definitely not feeling the look of those, has the shiny discount urethane and dimple look of some of the cheaper direct marketed balls. One of the areas where TP5/x, ProVs, and even MTB Black separate themselves. Performance characteristics aside, when you take a new one of those out of the box they just look like they are higher quality.




    How did the RB Tour play?



    I’m less concerned about what a ball looks like in hand and more interested in performance. The only thing that turns me off about a ball these days is a noticeable seam. In this day and age, there’s no reason for a noticeable seam.




    Used to line up the seam on the tee back in the day.




    I did too when it was the in thing to do.

    $42.99 at PGASS, so basically $5 cheaper than the AVX, ProV and X.

    For some reason I don’t like shinny either and that shouldn’t be a thing!

    I picked up a sleeve of each and will give them a try on our golf trip to Myrtle. I hope they perform. I'm taking some TP5/X to compare them against.

    IMO, $35 would have been the right introductory price.

    I just checked them out at the PGASS and to Big Ben's point, it looked a little too shiny and felt a lot more glossy than the TP5X, which is what I currently game now.



    Should have honestly picked up a sleeve just to test. Will do next time I visit!
