Suggestions for the spiniest golf ball

Played the first round of the year this past weekend and was having issues with tee shots reaching the apex and just falling out of the air. I know this is caused by the ball not having enough spin to keep it on trajectory and that is caused by lack of speed in the swing. Pretty sure I have traced the power drain to flipping the club caused by stalling my forward rotation. Will know for sure next week though when I see my pro.

I know things will not all right in the world until I get that power leak fixed but was wondering if I went with a higher spinning ball it that will help that dropping out of the air issue. Typically I hit the ball down the middle even when I'm at a 100% so side spin is not an issue. It is worth noting that this weekend I was playing the Callaway Supersoft which is lower spinning ball.

For reference I swing in the low 90s with TM M6 with the even flow blue set at 10.5. Hmm...will raising the loft help?

    Chromesofts spin a lot for me. I have about the same driver swing speed

    They've changed this ball a couple times, so the one you get might not spin that much.


    For the balls with the most spin off the driver I'd go with the Bridgestone Tour BXS, or either of the Mizuno balls. That being said, you're likely only going to pick up a couple hundred RPM's max with the ball off the driver. They're all designed to be fairly low spin off the driver. Is it possible to adjust your driver to have more loft? That should add both launch and spin to your drives which would help you out.

    The "Today's Golfer" testing, which is the most extensive I've ever seen, shows the ProV1x spinning the most off both the driver and wedges. Not by a lot, but the most.

    Kirkland three-piece urethane. Not the 4-piece. See my post measuring it and other premium balls on my GC2. TXG knows it, too, if you search for their videos.

    BXS will be the next in my bag, especially if they 'improve' it for this year's release.

    I tested a bunch of balls, and for me it is the ProV1x.

    Treat yourself as if you were someone you are responsible for helping. 

    Too much sanity may be madness and the maddest of all, to see life as it is, and not as it should be.

    Strictly for driver, the PROV1x. I would adjust the loft higher as others have noted on the driver, adding loft will help increase spin, just depends on your current ball apex.
