I'm just wondering what makes you play the ball you play. Feel? Price? Looks? I'm currently playing the pro v1 as the pro v1 x feels a little too firm when chipping and putting

    I have been a Bridgestone guy for a while. I used to play the B330S, but playing the Tour BX now. Great all around ball. Good distance, good feel, and enough spin.

    I game the Vice Pro+ because of the performance I get for the price. Although, I have a tournament coming up and I’m thinking of treating myself to a box of ProV1s.

    Taylormade TP5 Pix. pretty sweet ball. I would like to have the distance of the TP5X but the spin of TP5, but i cannot seem to find a ball like that.

    2020 Chrome Soft .....this latest gen, is sweet...i look for low spin off driver and long irons, and love wedge spin....and this version is a tad harder then prev gens, which is why I didnt play previous versions

    Hitting the Pro V. Durability is a big reason why I went that route compared to others.

    Titleist Pro V1X Left Dash. I'm exactly in their target launch profile for this relatively unique ball.

    Pro V1X since launch, but switched to PV1 when the "reversed" the flight (I like lower flight). Bridgestone Tour BX is amazing. When I run out of my cache of PV1, I am going to give the new version of the BX a serious try. Also want to try the new Chrome Soft X.

    Long long time prov user I played last weekend with the tour b xs and that's what i'll be playing going forward. They feel amazing off wedges and putters and the distance was on par with the prov's from what I could tell.

    Was using the Top Flite Hammer Control and shot all my PBs od the year with it. Then got some Srixon soft feels at the Cleveland demo day and shot my all time PB with that ball. I assume My swing change is more to blame for that, but I will play the soft feel more to see which one I will use going forward.

    I also will play a matte red Callaway Superhot when I'm playing around for fun as they are just fun to hit!

    so far this year I have played the Bridgestone Tour B XS Tiger edition (2019 ed) I have only managed 18 holes (x2 9-Hole rounds) due to my dyspraxia and shot pretty darn good golf. both rounds of 51 bad I know for 9-holes with par being 35. My course however was the last to reopen in England due to the Covid-19 pandemic so round 1 was rust and feel to the new restrictions ie holes upside down and so on. and played again the Tuesday just gone.

    Awesome ball I got through 17 holes with a single ball before my foot slipped and hit it OB Left. kinda beat myself up about it since I had just saved Par on my 7th hole. I managed a 216 yard drive on the second and 236 yard drive on 3rd. Getting much better distance and control is good, very good in damp weather too.

    Titleist ProV1. I don't think there is another ball on the market that has a more consistent construction and performance.

    All the other balls are fighting for marketshare with high dollar player endorsements and construction / fitting gimmicks.

    But sometimes, one ball might just work better for a player for whatever reason, and having choices and a competitive market makes for better products for everyone.

    Bridgestone Tour BX. Played the 2018 XS last year but this year's BX feels better off the putter. I need to go get my gapping sorted I've added a few extra yards with this ball.

    I've moved from Bridgestone XS to Bridgestone RX, a split match between them. The RX is the best feeling ball I've ever played.
