Long muther
« on: September 23, 2018, 01:03:42 AM »
I found this today and played 4 holes with it for 4 pars.  It's ok for putting, feels a bit soft on wedges and irons but it's long with the driver. 

Anyone play this and what's your long term view of this ball?

I have been using the XT for the season. It is a very long ball off the driver. Short game control is good and spin is mid around the greens. The ball holds up well to wear and tear. The colors are very easy to spot.

Good to hear from you Ash.  Trust all well.

The XT is supposed to be the "tour" level ball.  I;m gonna play this for the next round and if I don't lose it on the first hole, and if it checks out, may just get a box of red, pink, orange and yellow for giggles.  But yes, 4 drives with this and its a long ball.

Vivid is long but a shit ball around the green...it has a surilyn cover...the vibe is great around the green but spinny and shortish off the tee...it has a urethane cover...

I've tried all the Volvik balls, want to like them, love the colors and used to shread with their skis...the s3 is as good allrounder for me they have but doesn't come close to the titliest's or even the zstars or b330s IMO...

I agree with your comments on the Vivid. Feels dead for pitching/chipping.
