Studies of ball distance, spin?

Ball comparison charts
Hi, looking for a chart of independent ball testing by an iron byron type ball striking machine that

shows average distances and spin rates for leading golf balls, as current as possible.

Does such a chart/analysis exist?

    I've searched for this very same data myself, and unfortunately I've yet to find a definitive list. Of course there is the info printed in golf magazines every couple of years (like the spin chart in this months Golf Digest), but outside of that, I've never found much.

    This year I did some very detailed testing myself (of course I'm far from an Iron Byron!). I spent a lot of time with the new Penta TP5, Callaway Hex Black and Chrome, 2012 Bridgestone B330, B330S and B330-RXS, and Srixon Z Star XV. I tested drives into and down wind; hybrids, 150 yards, 100 yards, 50 yards, pitches and bunker shots. So if you are interested I'd be more than happy to answer any specific questions you may have.
