    Gotta update your pic....that old softfeel was crap....this new one is amazing (especially this time of year)...it is a very underrated ball. Anyone who has tried the old softfeel has got to try this new. I try not to give opinions on this kind of stuff, but I love this ball for a winter ball. Its awesome.<br />

    Totally agree with you Dan! I found an older version of this ball out on the course a month ago, and got more distance, height and control off the tee. Bought a dozen of the latest model and promptly shot my low round of the year (8-over par) at what I consider to be the toughest course I play. My driving was almost faultless (missed 2 fairways all day) and I gained 10+ yards over my usual NXT Tours. This ball is also plenty soft enough for my short game and putting, and checks up nicely off the wedges. All in all, an excellent choice for the mid-h'capper (like me).<br />
    <br />
    PS.<br />
    Forgot to mention that it's $7 cheaper per dozen than the NXT's too!

    I'll second those remarks. Exact same results and also played the NXT-Tour ball. Great ball!

    I was not fond of the old Soft Feel ball, but when I got some of the new Soft Feel's I fell in love with them. <br />
    <br />
    I have been playing these balls for the whole first half of the golf year and they preform just as good if not better than most balls out there and I have played almost every ball out there.

    I also have played the old model and it was ok but I tried the new model yesterday and really like it.<br />
    <br />
    I've been playing the AD333 and is a good ball but I'm pretty sure the Soft Feel is longer and less spin off the driver. The SF "may" not stop on the green as well as the AD333 but it's not much different and I can adjust for that.<br />
    <br />
    The MAIN thing I liked is I was able to out drive a playing partner but 5 to 10 yards several times yesterday and he allways outdrives me by 5 or 10 yards no matter how good of a drive I hit.

    Tried them on the weekend, and wow was I surprised. I usually play NXTs or Precept U-Tris but these are really sweet. I would have never guessed that a two piece ball could feel this good. They feel so soft off the driver, iron and especially around and on the green and yet they are very durable. I hit them twice and had an instant liking for them, strange thing is that I felt more confident standing over that ball. I started the round with U-Tris, relatively cold and wet weather, once I switched to Srixons I felt more confident and they seem to be about half to one club longer. Obviously they do not spin that much, but I hit the ball high enough that they usually stop. Very good ball for the price, will compete as my regular ball for sure.

    I got to try them today. I was very impressed as well. These were a very good ball for the money. I found myself reaching for these more often than not. If you want spin, these ain't the ones you're looking for. BUT, if you want distance, these are for you. These will be hanging around my bag indefinately.

    I haven't played it, but I love the ZUR-C and S. I tried the AD333 to save some money and hate them. My drives were dropping out of the sky for lack of spin and my irons weren't biting enough. I'll be giving them to my 9 year old.

    For the past few years I have always purchased Precept/Bridgestone balls. I'd sometimes play things found in the weeds and woods, but have loved the E5 and B330 and S. Last Sunday I ambled into the local golf shop was going to buy a dozen Bridgestone Treosoft for these cold Minnesota days. The clerk suggested I try the Srixon Soft Feel. I owe him a beer when he becomes of age. I played it today and loved it. At the end of 18 holes it still looks new except for my mark wearing off. The ball putts well, spins very well off the irons, though it says on the box it isn't supposed to, and off the driver it is just dandy. <br />
    When it comes to reading greens, though, I'm dyslexic and it didn't go in the hole on its own.

    Does anyone know if there's a huge difference between the Soft Feel & Soft Feel Ladies?<br />
    I can't see much difference on the Srixon Website. The Soft Feel has a higher trajectory & slightly higher spin, but the ladies is a touch softer.<br />
    <br />
    Thanks

    Read my review of the Srixon Soft Feels here<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    My aim when buying golf balls has been to minimize cost without sacrificing quality and performance. While I’d love to only play Titleist Pro V1’s the cost/benefit payoff just doesn’t add up for me.
    <br />
    <br />
    And I must say that there are some really good “Value for Money” balls out there on the market - balls that give you most of the performance of the more expensive balls, but at half the price. Having played both I can honestly say that the more expensive balls don’t have a noticeable improvement on my game.
    <br />
    <br />
    I’m not asking you to grab any old “rock” or the “lake balls” you pick up in the pro shop. These will really have an impact on your game, less spin around the greens and much less distance off the tee.
    <br />
    <br />
    My go-to “Value for Money” balls at the moment are the Srixon Soft Feels.

    Same as the AD333 which come in yellow <img src='http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' /> I use these as provisonal balls and practice balls on the green.

    I had been playing NXT Tour through the winter and ProV1x in the summer and yesterday a guy I was playing with was going on and on about this ball. He convinced me to hit one on the last hole and I gave it what I would consider an 80-85% swing. Thing was the ball went 300meters or 300 yards. I had never played this particular course before so I was a bit oblivious to it being a long one but the gay who gave me the ball had a Garmin watch and he was giving it the "I told you so" and telling me how cheap they were etc. He was amazed by the drive. Then I hit a lovely 75 yard wedge into the green and it stopped where it landed about 15ft past the hole. I then drained the only putt I got all day outside of 10ft for birdie.<br />
    <br />
    Was a strange way to end the round because it just felt so easy. Granted it was only two shots I hit with it but it felt strange how soft it felt but yet it went so far and flew so straight. Maybe I have been wasting money on Titleist balls for years?

    shoots mid 70 s<br />
    yesterday played the softfeel as was playing a very tight golf course and knew i d lose balls and as i got them free thought why not.<br />
    great straight ball flight great round greens had a best day chipping and putting with them... 24 putts and chips were predictable all the time .<br />
    shows there are balls half the price of premium balls which make little difference to your game!

    Srixon Soft Feel - probably the best golfball for a solid and straight drive....and for sure a affordable price

    Like you guys, I felt in love with the feel and performance of Srixon SF. As wrote on other thread, I will try SF against Wilson Duo and Snell Get Some.

    Has anyone played the new Soft Feel in yellow? Feel any different that the white?

    Agreed, I have it in white and yellow now. It's a very underrated ball. I shoot my best scores with this ball. But, miss the greenside spin of a QST - just for the fun of it.

    yes, it's a very good ball...and yes, the greenside spin isn't up there with the QST and Z-Stars but for the price, I can't argue with how well it works

    It is a good combination ball for me. When I say combination ball it works well for me playing the modern stuff and good for me playing the persimmon woods too. Now for me I have no problem spinning that ball around the greens and approaches. I like the feel off the putter too whether it be my somewhat modern Scotty or one of my vintage Bulls Eyes or Ironmasters. Note none of my putters are insert type I can see where it may seem squishy off an insert putter. I ended up on a deal on 3 dozen of those as part of my membership package this year.
