A new spin on an old question: Firm feeling (not hard) golf ball with the most spin?

I've been trying out the '06 Platinum and it seems to feel more muted than the '05. Tried the HX.Tour 56 and liked it's feel a bit better but the durability is still an issue. I was a fan of the Srixon UR-X but now that's gone. Looking a for a firm feeling golf ball that still has good spin. Have yet to try the '06 ONE Black which may fit this category.

This isn't exactly an answer to your question. I haven't tried the 06 Platinum yet (e.g., I haven't picked one up in the weeds yet), but played the 05 Platinum last year (I did pay for those!). I noticed the remaining 05 Platinum and Black on sale at my local Golfsmith store (San Jose, CA) on sale for $31.95.

 

It's different for everybody, but I perceive the Platinum to be moderately soft rather than firm. I would place the HX Tour 56 a little softer than the Platinum. ProV1 (2004 model I guess, whatever was before the current one) was a little softer than the HX Tour 56. The Nike One Gold and Precept U-Tri were in the "goo ball" catagory for me.

 

One ball that I bought to try out and really didn't like was the HX Tour. That one seems really firm to me, harder sounding than even a ProV1x off the driver and putter. Perhaps this is just the sound of it's cover as it seems to spin quite a lot with the short irons - as much as the Platinum for me. It just sounded so unnerving to me off the putter that I just didn't like it.

 

If I didn't misread what you were asking, perhaps the HX Tour (not 56) or Nike Black would be worth trying.

I do like the B330-S and will have to give it more of a work out. Ordered some along with three 2-ball packs of Nike ONE Blacks' from GPP Golf.

 

BTW, the 2-ball packs of Nike ONE's are $3.99 with no limit on how many you can buy. Do the math and that's a $24/dozen. Hard to beat that price.
