Snell MTB-X joins MTB golf ball lineup; all MTB balls now available in Optic Yellow

Snell-MTB-X

Snell Golf has unveiled its latest model of golf ball – the MTB-X, with the company additionally now offering all MTB golf ball models in Optic Yellow.

The Snell MTB-X is the successor to the company’s MTB Red ball, and its two new models consists of the MTB Black and MTB-X. The MTB Black is designed for players who seek a softer feel, with the ball aiming to provide players with a medium level of iron spin. The MTB-X, on the other hand, looks to offer players both a firmer feel and higher iron spin. Both of the new models are designed for low driver spin to provide players with maximum distance off the tee.

The new addition from Snell is offered in a one dozen “MTB Test Pack,” featuring two sleeves of each MTB model and a fitting guide to help players choose which ball works best for their game.

Speaking on the new addition, Dean Snell, owner and CEO of Snell stated

“In 2018, customer feedback of our MTB RED model led us to a new design target. We felt we could provide high spin for approach shots while lowering driver spin and maximizing distance off the tee. The new MTB-X model has accomplished both of those goals and has added the elite feel & durability of a cast urethane cover.

“Players who enjoyed the MTB RED model will find MTB-X to be very long, extremely durable, and offer improved aerodynamics for strong performance in windy conditions.”

The company are now also providing every MTB model in Optic Yellow.

The MTB-X is available to pre-order now from SnellGolf.com, with shipments scheduled for early April. Pricing for the MTB models starts at $32.99 for a dozen, with the price being reduced to $27.99/dz should you order five dozen.

    Costco’s balls are just as good as anything out there, and under $12 per dozen…

    The name, Smelly Balls seems odd, doesn’t it?

    I would like to know which ball will launch higher off of the driver?

    So people are going to bitch about the price of a dozen golf balls delivered to your front door going up by a buck? $31.99 vs $32.99 Wow. If that’s the case, I’m sorry about your plight and maybe you can find some affordable golf balls for your budget.

    The price has gone up, but the 5-pack deal is really good for a tour-level ball. They also offer 2-day shipping free. With tax, a pack of 5 dozen costs $147 (assuming 5% sales tax; YMMV). If you purchase the same number of ProV1s with the same sales tax it would come to $252.

    Personally, I’m not particularly price-sensitive; I want the ball that fits me. But this is significant…and for a very good ball.

    I preferred the MTB Black over the Red, so I’m looking forward to gaming the MTB-X to see if I like the firmer feel with the greater iron spin. Because I hit single-length irons, the trajectories are low for the 4-7 irons; extra spin might help.

    Looks like Snell is going the same way the others are. So much for the $25 bucks a dozen. Good ball, probably worth $35, just sad to see they didnt hold the line.

      $140 for 5 doz = $28/doz

      Kim, they start at $32 and get down to $27 as you buy a few dozen, plus FREE 2 day shipping. For cast urethane golf balls that perform well that’s a great deal.

WRX Spotted at U.S. Open: Justin playing just Rosey with new TPT

Published

on

We are a little more than halfway through the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, and so far the course is giving and taking as much as you would expect from a perfect setup by the USGA.

Taking the lead on Thursday and continuing to lurk into the weekend is Justin Rose. Since we have been paying close attention to his Honma golf bag all year, we noticed a shaft change in his Tour World driver.

We reached out to TPT to see if we could get an update on what Rose has put in play for what is often referred to as one of the toughest driving weeks of the year. Here’s the inside info

“Justin has put into play a TPT Golf 14 MKP-LT-SW shaft in his Honma driver. This shaft is a full 10 CPM ( Cycles per Minute ) stiffer than the 15 LKP-LT-SW shaft that he put in play at The Memorial after testing it that week. It’s also different in that it has a Mid Kick Point (MKP), where as the 15 LKP-LT-SW has a Low-Kick-Point (LKP) design.”

From a technical and fitting perspective (generally speaking) a lower kick point shaft will hit the ball higher with more spin compared to a mid or high kick point shaft if all other factors are equal. We don’t have access to his driver numbers but with the U.S. Open being played on what can always end up as a windy venue the theory would be that this change to the MKP is to help keep ball flight lower and more controlled — which will also be a benefit next month at the Open Championship.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best budget driver?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Ivyguy who is on the lookout for the best driver to be had at an affordable price ($300 or less). Our members give their suggestions, with plenty of different drivers getting a mention.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • tbsbama: “Cobra King LTD is a wonderful driver. The pro model has lofts from 7 to 10 with fade settings. The regular from 9 to 12 with draw settings. Both heads are absolute bombers and can be found pretty cheap. Best driver I have hit in several years.”
  • zzyzxx33: “I won a Tour Edge EXS Driver, and it has been Awesome! Great Price, Look, Sound and Results! It’s longer than anything else I’ve hit.”
  • AG12: “I would say the regular PING G400…you can get new for $300 on PGA SS website, ’17 M2 is a good choice, and the M4 can be had at under $300 used in most shops.”
  • Badshaft: “I have the F8+ and bought the extra weights off of eBay (inexpensive, shipped from China)- 12g front 7g back- Blue Tensei 70g stiff. Longest for me – straight and as accurate as anything. Nice well-balanced combo. Looks to me it has the same moveable weight strategy as the F9.”
