Mid-high launch, high spin ball

Recommended Posts

I've looking for a new ball to play. I currently playing the hex chrome, love everything about it, but don't like the feel of the ball. I want a ball that is mid -high launch, but gets a lot of spin. I don't care about which ball goes further, because it seems all balls go the same distance for me.

 

So if you could just list off a few balls for me, that would be great !! Again mid-high launch and high spin.

 

Thanks in-advance

Same here. Did not like the Hex Chromes the first year they came out. I really miss the original TP Black. Was high launch and spun on the greens like crazy.

I've heard the RBZ U might be close, but I haven't had a chance to try it yet.

What's in the Swift X?

Callaway fairways
Ping irons

You currently play the Hex Chrome, which is a 3 piece, 75 compression golf ball consisting of a core, mantle layer, and urethane cover.

Callaway like just about all other major OEMs refers to core compression when listing compression numbers (they do this to make their balls seem softer than they really are). However, since we hit the entire golf ball and not just the bare core, overall compression is a better gauge of a ball's relative hardness. The only major OEM to list overall compression rather than core compression is Srixon. In this case, the HEX Chrome's overall compression is in the low to mid 90's. The urethane ball with the lowest overall compression to ever be produced was the original Bridgestone B330RXS which is in the high 70's.

What don't you like about the feel of the Hex Chrome? Too hard? Too soft?

You will more than likely want a ball with similar construction (single core, single mantle layer, urethane cover) if you like the performance of the Chrome. Generally lower compression balls will launch higher and softer covers will spin more. Here are a few to try:

Bridgestone B330RX
Bridgestone B330RXS
Srixon ZStar
Srixon ZStar SL (discontinued but still available)
TaylorMade RBZ Urethane
Titleist ProV1
Original Wilson FG Tour (discontinued but on clearance at most Walmart's. The new FG Tour for 2014 is a higher compression 4 piece)

Big fan of riving threads. I am currently playing the Z-star (various models none of the xv varieties) and realized that I need higher launch and more spin after I am have trouble holding greens at times with 9 irons granted it is the driest it has been since last August. I was thinking about switching to the Lethal. But, now I am curious about what the Project (a) might be able to do I know it was supposed to spin more off the long irons what about the short irons? I really am fine with the Z-star off the tee, just need more height and or spin with the irons. I really have no brand preferences either currently playing KBS Tour 120S in my irons at an 80MPH swing speed and moderate tempo in case anyone was curious, hit them well so I particularly don't want to switch just need something higher launch and spin, hopefully without giving up driver distance.
