What's the right ball for me?

Haso

I've always tinkered around with different golf balls, anywhere from Pinnacle Gold's to Pro V1's. My swing speed is generally over 100MPH, probably in the 101-104 area. I generally need help around the greens and not as much with driver. I know the Velocity is a good ball, but I'm not sure if the NXTs are a better fit for me. I want to be able to hit my Vokey's with precision, any help would be greatly appreciated!

    In my options the velosity is just a low end distance ball with no short game feel. The ProV line is the best. But a little pricy NXT's are a good affordable alternative.

    Is there a big upside to the NXTs for an amateur? I know the ProVs feel amazing around the green, just sometimes I'm not sure if I have too golf much ball for my set of skills (ie am I losing distance off the tee with a tour ball).

    With you swing speed you might want to look at the Pro V1 or Pro V1x. Buy a sleeve of each to try out and see which performs best for you.

    Haso, as someone who used to be in a similar state of mind as yourself (sometimes feeling as though the Prov1/v1x are too much ball for you) I HIGHLY recommend just playing one of the Pro V1 series balls. I am a 9 Handicap, and have within the last 2 years begun playing Pro v1's exclusively. Yes they are pricey, but I sincerely believe the Pro v1 in itself played a major role in my handicap falling from a 12 at that 2 year mark to my current 9. The control and feel around the greens is un-paralleled. Distance loss is minimal if any at all off the tee. I was playing the v1x (a golf pro gave me 4 dozen pro v1x+ and v1x(DOT) balls) but recently switched to the new pro v1 and loooove it. For me, the choice between the 2 is all in ball flight. I did my first golf ball fitting last month and discovered that the new Prov1 is a better fit for my game as I naturally launch the ball very high. The pro v1, to me, still has a little softer feel off the irons/wedges and putter which I prefer. Take it for what it's worth, but I can testify that they do offer huge advantages and are not too much ball for you. Sorry for the long post.

    The NXT Tour & NXT Tour S are both very good golf balls. They are comparable to the Pro V1x & Pro V1, except they do not have a urethane cover and there price point is less than the Pro V1's. Another ball you could try is the DT Tru Soft, it's a very good all-around ball.

    I concur with the recommendation of the DT TruSoft. Might be the answer you are looking for. Good distance, spin and low cost. I live by the Prov1 but have played the DT and it is a very efficient and performing ball. Buy a sleeve and give it a try. Velocity is not you answer. It is a hard distance ball.

    I agree with Chuck. DT Trusoft might be the ball for Haso. But then again it will be good to try the rest as different golfers have different preference on feel, spin etc. if still unsure, you should be able to get ball fitted. For my case I was recommended by my titleist fitter. Prov1x.

    I think there on the website for Titleist a method to determine the right titleist ball for you. For me it was ProV1X, and I am not a 100 mph swinger! But the ball helps me score easier around the greens. It has good long distance off the tee. Feels great!

    If you don't care about price then the ProV1X would probably be best for you. Another good ball is the new NXT Tour Soft:

    Hm all great ideas. I think getting fitted for a ball somewhere would definitely make a lot of sense. Thanks guys.

    I have a 16 handicap, swing speed of around 90, I need to settle on one or two balls and stick to them. It has been suggested I NOT use the ProV balls as I cannot get the most out of them. I have tried Super Soft, E6, E6s, NXT Tour NOT the Tour S, Wilson Duo, Erixon Z not the Q, DT Solo and multiple others. Which Titleist ball should I look into and why?
