Recommended Posts

I have read everywhere.

I am a higher handicap (shoot low 90s) that wants to reduce sidespin off the tee. I am around a 95mph SS.

 

I so prefer some bite around the Greens though and My iron shots dont need to hit around the flag and roll off.

 

Any suggestions?

Been looking at

Srixon Q Star- Heard mixed reviews

Srixon Z Star- Would it be too spinny off driver?

Srixon Soft Feel- How much Bite?

Taylormade Project (A)- My number 1 choice so far

Titleist NXT Tour- Not sure, But its titleist

Bridgestone E6- Heard bad reviews around Green

Nike RZN White- I like Nike so through it in here

 

I am super indecisive and want yalls help!

Thanks

Gamer Soft or Gamer Tour depending on how much bite you need. There's also the Wilson 50 Elite. No need to go with a more expensive ball.

Wood: Adams Tight Lies 4w 16* Stiff

Check out Snell. Two models and different price points and discounts for buying six dozen. He also sells a test pack that lets you compare the two models. Also has a chart online that compares various manufacturer models to his.

 

I'm currently between these and Project (a).

Taylormade M1 19*
Srixon U65 20*, 23*

I'm assuming you have read reviews on sub 2016 e6's because I played those for a little while this season and I could spin those back with my 54 & 58. It would only be a foot or so, or just one bounce and stop but it's not ridiculous. Long irons the roll out was 15-20 feet or so but IMHO, the 2016 e6 is the best bang for your buck with regards to reducing side spin. Plus, it's long. I was 5-10 yards longer than my Chrome soft off the tee with it.

 

Stay away from the Project (A) balls. They're super light and spin like crazy. I blind tested those balls and they are no bueno if you're trying to reduce side spin. Not to mention, they play like dog crap in the wind. Wind takes em for a ride like nobodies business.

How did you like the e6's around the green with short chips and pitch shots? Have you played with supersofts and if so how do they compare?
