    Just picked up a free sleeve at my local demo days after purchasing my new combo 919 HM/Forged set. Was looking forward to trying them but these durability issues.....

    . . . I could absolutely play these as a lower-cost winter ball compared to my TP5 . . .

    Up here in Canada, the Mizuno and the TP5's are the same price ($60/dozen). Definitely not a lower cost ball.

    Weird. New TP5 are $46, RB were $36 at the course I played.

    Well, to be fair the new TP5's are $59.99 and the Mizuno's are $54.99/dozen. We don't often get deals on golf balls. Although, I picked up a few dozen of the pre-2019 TP5x for $30 Cdn/ea I also remember grabbing a few dozen Z-Star 's last year for $25 a dozen. But that is rare. If you buy golf balls at the courses, you usually pay more, but rarely do you ever pay less

    i just played this ball last night and the ball is significantly shorter on my 6i-wedge. good thing I only bought a 3 pack...not a great performing ball for me. didn't hold lines well either. Off the driver it was fine.

    played 18 today with the RB tour X and was left feeling underwhelmed. wasn't a terrible ball in any aspects of the game but nothing shined either...distance was about the same as any premium ball but slightly shorter into a head wind. feel was about on par with a ProV1, i could imagine the RB tour must be softer...but the surprising thing was how little spin i was getting from the wedges. definitely not the check i would get from a prov1. felt like around the greens i'd have to play for more run out. durability wasn't as bad as some of the others were claiming, but i didn't hit any trees or cartpaths. the full wedge shots did leave small groove marks but nothing i'd think was unplayable afterwards. these balls should be in the 29.99 category and i think alot of people would enjoy them. i myself wouldn't bother buying these as for my game there are better performing options. hurts to say as i'm a mizuno fan.

    I haven’t tried them myself but a friend of mine put the tour x in play last weekend and had some major durability issues. He split a ball open on each of the first two holes with wedge shots. I have never seen him split his usual gamer (pro v) open and we play together at least once or twice a week. I can’t see myself ever trying them based on that experience.

    Played the x against z stars for 9 holes today. Was pretty wet. Didnt notice any unusual wear. Was dead even with the driver distance wise. Also didnt notice it being shorter on my.irons since the spin so much
