For me, a ball is a ball.

The last time I saw any discernible difference in a ball was when the Pro V’s came out and that was many moons ago. I’ve yet to experience a ball that gave me 10 yards more distance or 10% more accuracy. Sorry. Doesn’t exist.

Distance and accuracy wise I'd agree but when it comes to feel and spin, I think there are very discernible  differences.

HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE differences even amongst the top end balls.
XXIO premium  brills ive  bene using for eons in winter, DEFINITELY  fly off the face fast to the touch, go higherm carry further  than the tourstage x01z ive been using equally for yonks.
 the  cold days  make a  pretty noticebale diff in ball FEEL...

the brills don't spin as much,   and feel unbeleivebale off the putteer face.

in summer I cant tell much diff, but when its cold that when u can tell as a layman

Somebody gave me that uber expensive Bridgestone Phyz ball a couple of days ago. Glad it didn't perform for me (and some other testers as well).

While the feeling of this ball is great - especially in the long game the ball jumps with some explosiveness I've never felt before from the face - the numbers and the behavior with wedges where terrible. A couple of thousand rpm less than a Pro V1 ball and 5-6 degrees higher launch angle. With the SW the ball hit the ceiling in my studio before it hit the screen in front of me. Normally you have to do a flop shot to do that.

If you guys wanna see some more detailed reviews take a look at the stuff from TXG on YouTube. They are a fitting studio in Canada I believe. They also made some videos on balls. The Kirkland original version is one of the spinniest balls ever according to them. The second release is a completely different ball apparently.

By the way, played 9 holes yesterday. On one hole I tested (driver) the Callaway Chrome Soft Truvis vs Wilson DX2 soft. Truvis was 30yds longer. On another hole I tested (driver) the Truvis against a Bridgestone B330 RX and this time the Bridge was 20yds longer than the Truvis! What it all boils down to is how high you hit it, how much spin you impart on the ball and what happens when said ball hits the ground. Overall I still think that the Wilson felt softer, just, but all very very similar.
Anywho there you go.

I used to play the Tourstage Balls when Tourstage was the real deal... Then I jumped to the XXIO ; but they are too expensive...

So now I have settled for the Bridgestone JGR (anyone with me on this one?).

Btw; Singapore based Bros...anywhwre to find the JDM balls there? Any JDM shop that worth a visit? (spending Xmas there)
