Looking for golf balls for slower swings

What are some of the better low compression balls for people with slowish swing speeds? I found a senior ball in the woods the other day and just blasted further than anything I have ever hit before, so that is why I ask. Plus I have some money in my PayPal account and figured I may as well try to get some balls off of eBay. Oh, I am not looking for the best, nor the cheapest, but something inbetween (well, maybe closer to the inexpensive end). Thanks.

Because of the price I decided to try some Nike Power Soft's which according to their site are 62 compression. The price seemed pretty good on eBay, and I could not find any Maxfli's that were not used/recycled other than single dozen boxes, and with shipping those were too much. I think the 3 dozen Nike's cost me about $33 instead of the $48 they would be at Dicks.

 

Then I saw 5 dozen Dunlop LoCo's for $27 (normally $10/dozen at Golf Galaxy). Not so sure about these but it is hard to argue with that price. I believe they are around 65 compression.

 

Overall $60 for 8 dozen balls is hard to beat and hopefully these will be a step above the standard Top Flites I have been using. And 96 balls should last me... like... 4 rounds.

Again another fan of the Noodles. Both models are very solid for the price. "The Softest Noodle" formerly the "Rotini" and "The Longest Noodle" "Deldante" are very good for the slower swing speeds.

 

At my store we cannot keep the Volvic Crystals in stock. people are loving them. not sure of the "see through" look of them personally.

 

I think the best ball for the money was the Precept Lady or Laddie. Very soft and quite long for the slower swing speeds.

I use the Dunlop LoCo's and like them a lot. I find them to be the same as the DT Solo's at half the price and I have heard something that they are manufactured at the same plant as some high end brand that I cannot remember right now. But if you see them for that price give them a try, they fly far and straight.

 

I was just wondering where in the world you found them for that cheap? Thats an amazing price on them. ;)

Well it was an eBay auction for 4 dozen LoCos with a bonus sleeve of LoCo Crazy Longs per pack, so 5 dozen balls total. It was a Buy-It-Now and the guy still has some available:

The guy has good feedback so I am hoping everything works out. Of course you never know with eBay. $16.99 + 10.00 really is too good to be true, for any ball.

Anything with low compression...and that usually means a Lady's ball (if your ego can take it).

 

That's the idea behind the Precept Laddie...it's a Precept Lady with a different name--they found out a lot of guys like the ball, but couldn't stomach playing a "Ladies" ball, so they just changed the name, and VOILA! the Precept "Laddie".

My favorites are the Nike Mojo, Laddie Extreme (yes, I played the Lady's also), and Srixon Soft Feel. The only thing about the Mojos is you are only getting 11 playable balls per dozen as they add the stupid colored ball to the box. One of my dogs is named Mojo so I have kind of a soft spot for those in spite of the colored ball. Never warmed up to the Noodle or the So\Lo. Not sure why.
