Slightly better performance than TF D2 feel? (Mainly greens)

So right now I use the Top Flite D2 Feel and it's a pretty good ball for me. It goes pretty far (almost too far sometimes) and it has some performance around the green, but I'd like a little more so I could hit my chips a touch harder with confidence.
Is there any ball that has the same distance as my current ball, but a little better performance around the green? I tried the Titleist Velocity and didn't like it. I'm also looking for something in the up to $25 range, so no Pro v1's or anything like that. I'm not good enough and lose too many balls to play balls that pricey.
Thanks.

    Maybe the Maxi Softfli or the Callaway Supersoft.

    I would recommend the SuperSoft, SoftFeel, or TruSoft. The Callaway balls from Costco are usually half-decent as well (~$60 for 48 balls). These are all probably marginally better than the Velocity, but I don't think any of them are going to do too much more (absolute or vs your TF D2 Feel). Probably need to go to a cheaper urethane ball to make a big difference.

    Titleist Velocity is going to spin as little around the green as any mainstream ball I know of.

    The three mentioned by friend agolf1 (SuperSoft, SoftFeel, or TruSoft) are going to marginally better and probably as good as you're going to do without using a urethane cover.

    Try the Trusoft or the Wilson 50/50 elite. I’ve tried all 3 and the Trusoft and 50/50 are both better than the D2. I think the Trusoft is the best of the 3 but is a bit more expensive

    There is very little difference in green side spin between 2-piece ionomer covered balls, so you will need to look at something with a urethane cover if increases spin is your primary goal. If price is a big concern, try the Top Flite Gamer Urethane or the Kirkland Performance+ (if you have a Costco membership).

    It's worth another five bucks (29.99) for Q Star Tour. They do go on sale quite often too. I find the D2 Feel slightly firm, the same for the QST. They have a yellow ball, too.

    Just gonna throw this out there. I like the D2s ALOT. I did just get some 5A NXT Tour S's and really like ALOT about them. I played them in the past and that's why I got them. Good ball for me.

    I've never had much luck with Titleist balls. They just never seem to feel, sound right, or perform very well for me.

    Also, there's the 3 piece surlyn category that should feel as good as the D2 Feel but have better spin, like Wilson Soft Spin.
    I also have played the D2 and like them. But, went away from them due to a lack of spin. They are a great value though.

    Try the Top-Flite Gamer Urethane. Those should do what you are asking for.
