  • SheriffBooth changed the title to Best Golf Ball ever made in your opinion..

There were three balls for me that I felt at that time were the best ball made:

 

1 Nike Tour Accuracy (original model)

2 Maxfli Revolution

3 Taylormade TP Red

Best older ball. Pic for attention-

Best recent ball(s) - 2019 TP5 family. The TP5x is the longest tour-level ball I’ve used. The TP5 was the best overall ball. It’s use of multiple layers to produce club-specific flights is unmatched. It’s like every few years, TM puts out a world-beating ball, then dumbs it down for no apparent reason…

 

Best current ball - V1x. No other ball is able to discriminate driver and short iron flight and spin as well. It has the best “stopping” characteristics of any ball.

Shot my lowest scores with a Maxfli Revolution in the ‘90’s

 

- Long & straight off the tee

- Good spin off the irons

- Good enough (but more importantly, consistent) spin around the greens

- Durable

- Affordable

 

Yeah, I miss that ball.

Loved that ball but you needed to bring the heat or you were giving up a ton of yards.

The one I'm playing right now. :classic_wink:

 

For nostalgic purposes though, I do have fond memories of the TP Red. 😎

Some of my faves (and apparently others too) over the years:

 

Precept EV Extra Spin (Nick Price days)

Titleist Professional

Maxfli HT Balata

Maxfli Revolution (except for the yellowing)

TM LDP Red (I still have a few dozen, use them mainly in charity scrambles)

Spalding Tour Edition (just insane spin, so fun)

The Titleist Professional and the original wound Maxfli Revolution are balls that I'm very fond of.

 

My fondest memories and ball I loved most was the Maxfli Revolution as well.  I was also a very big fan of the original Callaway Hex Chrome ball (before they added the "soft" to it).

I've had lots of favorite balls for a variety of reasons: 

 

1. Callaway HX Diablo, made my albatross with that ball.

2. Callaway Warbird, made my hole in one with that one.

3. Wilson Fifty Elite, broke 75 in a tournament for the first time with that one.

4. Maxfli Noodle, made 5 birdies in one round with that one of those. 

5. Titleist Pro V, won my first Club Championship with this one, can't remember which ball I used for my second Club Championship the following year

6. Taylormade TP, won my first Senior Club Championship. 

 

As you can see, I play lots of brands and my current favorite is a Callaway Chrome Soft.

Even though I don't play it, I'm going to have to say the Titleist Pro V mainly because it revolutionized EVERYTHING
