Sweet, thanks!

Gotta say, I'm a die hard titleist guy but if this ball performs better with a similar feel I'm willing to put it into play.

The turn off for me with the first line was the firm RZN core. Felt way too clicky. Even more so than the new HEX Black.

Both are great balls but I like the feel of the PV1X ten times more.

I hate to pile on but I have to agree. Every year we are told the New Nike Ball is the best ball ever and every year I buy a sleeve of each and am typically underwhelmed, especially for the cost. It does seem like guys who tend to love Nike equipment in general are fans of their balls and that's cool, I am not saying in any way that Nike makes a crappy or bad ball, there just always seems to be some aspect i am not a fan of. I actually liked the tour D quite a bit. and the One Plat before that. I am sure I will put them through their paces when they come out.

I really don't see the point in having two 20xi balls that are so similar. The current S & X are nearly identical aside from a slight difference in compression (and even that isn't much). They should really take a que from TM and Callaway and release one 20xi at $45 and a cheaper 3-piece urethane ball (something similar to the One Tour D) at $30-35.

The ONErzn balls look like an epic failure. For those that don't already know, Nike's "RZN" is actually just one of Dupont's HPF ionomer blends ([url="http://www2.dupont.com/HPF/en_US/"]http://www2.dupont.com/HPF/en_US/[/url]). This ball will essentially be 3 layers of ionomer (probably be better off hitting a marble).

Nike has got to get better price points to have people try the ball out. I have tried the 20XI and it's nothing special but if the new one is better at their price points not certain how many will buy.

Actual retail is $45.99 which is still less than the ProV1 and consistent with the rest of the OEM's top balls. There have been promos and discounts throughout the year so it has not been difficult to find these for less.

The TM Penta/5 and the Penta5 blows all the Nike balls away, and you can get them for around 30.00-40.00 a dozen.

No they don't, let's face it, they just have to get Tiger to play it. That isn't a bash on Nike, Tiger etc...that is marketing reality.

Isn't 20XI supposed to mean 2011 (XI being II in roman numerals)? why is this ball not called 20XIII?

They had too many leftover flat bill hats with 20XI on them to change it. No one bought these (except for me, grey and black).

The average golfer dossnt even know Tiger plays a special ball . they think he plays the same one on store shelves.

It looks like the OneRZN balls are going to be a dual core 3-piece ball with no mantle similar to the NXT Tour. Post #155 has some pics from the Nike 2013 catalog:

If these are anywhere near the firmness of the past 20XI, then no thank you.

I admit these things are long, and they spin a tad too much on full shots, but around the green these have to be no better than using a pinnacle gold.

As for these having the "softest cover of all tour balls" doesnt mean crap when the mantle layer and core are hard as rocks.

I will try these because I loved the Nike One premium lines, still use them when I find them, but I do not understand why Nike can not for their lives use this "break through" technology and give it at least a nice feel off the club face.

I have my fingers crossed but it just looks like Nike rehashing the old product to try and breathe life into this golf ball line. But, who knows, I hope I am wrong. If I am I will have my next ball in 2013.

The compression charts confirmed what I've been saying all along, these things are rocks. The sound off the driver is what irks me the most. Or used to anyways, when I still had my hearing in my left ear.

New balls sounds a 100 times better and is very soft feeling/sounding. I've played both versions of the new 20XI, not the RZN, however.
