Rextar Promodel.

Titleist Professional.

Spalding Tour Edition.

Nike One DD.


We must be twins. My favourites through the ages too. 
 

I possibly wasn’t quite good enough to appreciate / justify the Rextar at the time. I just knew I wanted to be Nick Faldo 🤣 (If only in my head).

Dating myself but the original Spalding Tour Edition that Norman played was awesome.  Fond memories of that and my Yonex ADX driver. 👨‍🦳

Yes! Yes! Yes! What a ball, spun like a top.  Were around when I first started as a kid and it was a great day when you found one of these babies in the rough or OB.  Saved our pocket money to buy sleeves of these - it was like Christmas!!!

The Titleist professional was THE ball when I was growing up. Then came the Maxifli Revolution.  

 

The Precept Lady/Ladde was the first solid core ball I played with regularity but the first one that made me say wow that's different was the first gen proV1x.  

 

I'm very excited to try the 21 tp5x as it seems someone was listening to all my nitpicking over the last few years.

I played some of my best golf with the Callaway HX Red. At that time it was longer than anything I had ever played, yet still had great spin inside 100yds.

OG Maxfli Rev 90. I was a Freddy guy back in the day, so I played it along with an original Kevin Burns 9303. Nothing has ever felt better.

 

Runner up would be the TM Lethal.

Funny how my gamer is the TP5 but will mess around with the Chromesoft X or Maxfli Tour.

Depends. Most balls today are the best balls ever, but for its time, the titleist professional was so much better than all its competitors.

I miss the plastic sleeve containers that used to come with TaylorMade golf balls.  I kept those when I had them and store balls in them (in my bag) to this day.  They had the greatest packaging ever.

2013 or 14 Bridgestone B330-S.  That ball was great.  Wind performance was unreal.  Spin around green was spectacular and it was long enough. It had a really nice solid feel.  

 

The generation after it was crap.  Haven't tried a bridgestone since.  

 

I was playing coach-provided ProV's in high school at that time and found a B330-S on our course. I tried it out and it was like everyone had been lying to me. This was the number one ball in golf, no doubt about it. It flew off the driver, it stuck into greens. I played that single ball for 3 rounds or so until I lost it. For whatever reason they were really rare in my area. I always joked "You'll never find a B330, few play them, and we who do are too good to lose them"

 

Whenever I found one it was like a mini-christmas.

 

To the OP, the other ball would be the HX Hot Bite. I wanted them when I was just about old enough to afford something like golf balls for the first time. So I got them and boy were they better than Top Flite XLs

Titleist Tour 100 compression balata ball.  I absolutely loved the control I had with this ball as well how soft it felt with a putter.


I still have a few but they have lost compression.  I use my stock to hit my persimmon woods off the tee.

Wow...love the persimmon collection, especially the Woods Brother driver. Always wanted one of those way back when...I only have 2 left..a MacGregor Tourney and a Cleveland Classic that Roger Cleveland made for me.

I have one Wood Brothers Texan and it was made for Gene Sauers.  I'd love to have more Wood Brothers.  Most of my collection are 1950s era MacGregors.  I have three Joe Powell made for tour woods, three or four Cleveland Classics and a custom driver my old club restoration person made for me back in 1992/1993.
