A good ball
on October 5, 2013
Here is what I look for in a golf ball:
How a ball feels, flies and spins off of my clubs; how it feels and rolls when I putt.
I tools sleeve to the course yesterday and here is my observation of the ball.
On drives and long irons the ball feels good off the tee. (Subjective, I know, but it doesn't feel like I'm hiring a rock.) It's not as soft as the Pro V1 but not as hard as the NXT Solo. The flight seems to be a mid trajectory flight. There's less spin than I expected as well. However the distance was easily five to eight yards longer than the Pro V1.
On short irons I found that the trajectory was too low for my liking. It made it harder to control my 100 yard shots. Yet if someone played this ball regularly it would be something I think they could control. When chipping, I couldn't control the flight all that well, making my chips roll a lot farther than what I want.
Putting: here's where I don't like the ball. It doesn't feel soft enough for me and it rolls too fast. As an example, a five foot putt that I'll either make or leave short an inch or two went two feet past the hole. This happened several times.
It's a decent golf ball but I won't be using it. Hope this helps.
