    Likely. The Srixon QST in yellow. They have a nice feel, yellow color, moderately priced and spin on the green.
    Just need to give the Callaway Magna ball one shot to see what they are all about.

    Chromesoft was my favorite ball last year but the price is prohibitive. I went to a Wilson later in the year and saved $12 a dz and ended up with the same or better results. I love the chrome soft but just cant pay that price every year

    Bridgestone Tour BX. Tour BRX when its cold outside. Its crazy how much better I score when I use those balls. They just fit my game I guess.

  • Arlin964Arlin964 Members Posts: 68 ✭✭

    My best performance has been with Bridgestone Tour B XS so far this year. Other contenders still up for evaluation are:
    Chromesoft X
    Z Star XV
    Tour B RX

    For some reason I just don’t get on well with Q Star Tour or regular Chromesoft.

    I'll try the Srixon Z Star, but I'm leaning going back to the AVX. I'll try the new ProV1. I tried the new TP5 and actually liked last year's better. Crazy.

    Wilson FG Tour if I can find them, have 2 dozen now.
    I've got a mishmash of tour balls in my stash. Dozen ProV1, 3 sleeves each of TP5, BStone RXS, ChromeSoft ( 2nd Fav), 2dz. Ksigs, and 2 sleeves of Snell MTB Black. Plus a mix of those in the bag.
    I only use 1-2 balls per round, and will play a ball 2-3 rounds if not damaged, so I'm set for the foreseeable future.

    It took a little getting used to, but I'm going to play the new TP5 this year. I like the feel, the ball flight, and the performance in the wind.

    Thanks to the Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales I will be playing DT TruSoft, Softfli, and Srixon Soft. At age 67 I appreciate the soft feel that each of these balls have.

  • monkeyboymonkeyboy Lefty Boomers Posts: 657 ✭✭

    Snell MTB-Red as I still have about 4 dozen left over from last season.
    Will try Snell MTB-X and Black once they ship (April), may switch over to one of them after testing and gift my leftover balls to my son.

    Another vote for the Qstar. For one I wanted to switch to a yellow ball and RockBottomGolf had 2 dozen or more for $20/dz and $0.99 customization. Hard to beat that in my opinion.

  • BiggErnBiggErn Members Posts: 2,163 ✭✭

    Probably Chrome Soft and Project (a). Wilson duo Professional was ok but I’m done with matte finish balls.

  • DavePelz4DavePelz4 A golf course in the Chicago area.ClubWRX Posts: 24,208 ClubWRX

    Considering there are 14 double dozen KSigs of various flavors, that's the go to ball for the year.

    Unless the test box of TPX5's gets opened, or the stash of Lethals makes an appearance.

    Of course, the e6's could come into play...

    Don't recall how many years I have played ProV1x but recently switched to the new ProV1. So far so good.

    As the OP said there are many ball options. However, just because a lot of ball options exist doesn't necessarily mean we have to try them all. I care too much about game improvement. There are a lot of career options out there too. Can't try them all when the greater goal is to be accomplished. B)

    I've got a good stock of 2019 TP5X's laying around but will eventually switch over to the forthcoming Snell MTBX ball as it looks to be just what I am looking for!

    Plus, one Matte finish balls are not good. They get dirty easy and do not have the same feel as a shiny ball. Hope this trend goes away.
