Changing ball from Pinnacle Gold (2014) advice

What is a good 2019 ball to change to from 2014 Pinnacle Gold's? I like low spinning balls. Lower spinning the better. I thought maybe there was a 2019 ball out there with better technology than the Pinnacle Gold 2014 ball. It's a very hard ball for all shots, low spinning. My wedges stop quick with this ball.

I prefer harder covers generally, I feel like I'm hitting air with some Pro v1x's I bought, they spin way too much from the tee, in my opinion less feel as they are so soft and very expensive. I've used Maxfli noodles in the past that were ok ish and Pro v1 a few years back (another ball that spun too much for me and way too soft lacking feel)

I still have decent stock of the 2014 Pinnacle, but no harm looking about . Especially when I read up on the effect of yellow ball, seeing it better etc. All the balls I have are white.

Thanks

    E6 in yellow. Both are two piece balls. E6 will give you a straight ball and 2019 technology in yellow.

    Velocity is tempting. All good suggestions.

    If you're near central NJ, I have some balls I'll give you to try out.

    The Velocity comes in a sparkly orange. I imagine it has decent visibility. Have only played it in white. Feels very nice for a firmer straight ball. But, impossible to hold the greens.

    ProV1x feels soft? Gotta be the first time I've ever read that.

    Has no feel compared to Pinnacle Gold's. But Pinnacle Gold's are a rock, but I like to feel like I'm hitting a ball not air.> @Tanner25 said:

    I don't mind pitching in front for approaches and my wedges quick with Pinnacle Gold's anyway if I land on greens - hop and stop. My main thing is trying to keep it in play off the tee whilst advancing the ball as far as possible safely. I'm ok with 2 piece from inside 160 yards.

    Pinnacle Gold is a good ball for me. Looks like the velocity is basically the same ball from reading the forums! Maybe I should just stick with Golds!

    Nah that's boring. There was another Pinn Gold lover here a while back, then he went to Pinn soft and swore by it. Seems to be two different ball categories though.
