Battle of the sub $1.50 balls

Wilson 50
TF D2
TF XL
Maxfli Revolutions
Noodle Long n Soft
Slazenger
K3

Callaway Hex Soft Costco

Sure there are more. What are your favorites, their price point, and features?

For me the Wilson 50 is just too soft. The k3 I just hate for some reason. The TG D2 is a great ball. Noodle is solid but not very long. Tempted to try the costco callaway that replaced the hot 55.
Dick's is great when they have deals, but I'm really trying to find the diamond in the rough $1 ball that has distance, feel and more greenside spin than a Topflight XL.

    D2 feel has to be a contender in this price range. I am curious about the Noodle Neons. Wilson Zips?
    1.00 a ball will be tough unless you get Nitros which are terrible.

    Just buy the QST when the BOGO free deals are on and you'll be paying $15/dozen.

    I think the max is $18/doz inclusive of tax and shipping. But anything under $20 out the door should play.

    LOL! Literally any golf ball ever made is better than a Top Flite XL. If you have a Dunhams Sports near you the $7.99/dozen deal for the Nike RZN Platinum practice balls can not be beat. .67/cents per ball that are brand new for a tour level urethane covered ball. They just have a small PRACTICE side stamp on them.

    Not sure where you are located. If you have a Dunhams Sports near you stop in and see if they have that Nike RZN deal running. There was a recent thread here on it. Good luck.

    I'd add the Maxfli Softfli/Speedfli to that list. Both balls are extremely good for their pricepoint.
    Are the they same as a Q Star Tour? Heck no. But when buying cheap, you could do a lot worse than them.

    If you are in the UK or parts of Asia, these are about US$0.50 per ball. Literally a flying rock but it is still round and can end up on the green or in the water depending on the swing.
