Have to brag.  Smell Red (yellow one)

#7 hole today. 172 yards, stongish left to right breeze. . Took a little off a 7 iron and turned it back into the breeze. Ball mark was about a foot short of the pin.
Unfortunately, I canít see that far, so didnít see it go in.  (Also remeber, elevation when talking distance)

Thanks. But in all honesty I don't think I've ever said my seven iron is 150. It's always been my 170 club. But it was also 98* today, so ball was going a little farther.

I’m guessing that particular MTB Red (yellow) might get retired without you trying to get 72 holes out of it.
Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

Good call NB.  I had just hit a new one in the lake on the previous hole so dug this used one out of the bag. It probably had three or four rounds on it already, but won't be gaining any more.

Hadn't really thought about that. I've just posted quite a bit in this thread about the ball, so I thought it would be a good place for a shout out and a brag at the same time!��

I finally had chance to test MTB Red.  As gaming the original MTB for years, MTB Red completely is different ball.  RED definitely is clickier than the OG.  Flight and distance about the same.  For me, RED fits in between ProV1x and Z Star XV.

What made YUGE difference was spin.  Thanx to many WRXers, I already knew RED would spin more so I went after flags.  Though some rolled forward and back few feet more but overall, I was able to play aggressively and to place balls in easy one-putt range.   If i can shave few strokes in hcp, RED would stay.

Finally, got around to getting the test pack. Glad I did. So far, very impressed.

I'm average swing speed guy (90-95 with the driver) and have definitely gravitated towards lower compression balls as I like soft feel. I got the test pack to really try out the MTB Black, but actually decided to play MTB Red first. Played 54 holes over a couple of days with a sleeve of the Reds and I'm surprised how much I liked the ball.

I got the Yellow version of the MTB Red and the finish was on point. Durability was good and the yellow color was bright and easy to spot. I was bracing for a clicky ball, but found it to have very nice feel. Ball preformed excellent off the driver and the extra spin was noticeable going into the green. Hit a few shots out of rough that still provided great spin into firmer greens.

Going play MTB Black for my next few rounds. I will say, I thought Black would fit my game better, but its really going to have to perform to beat Red. For me, the MTB Red was a very pleasant surprise.

I have done some putting and chipping with the Black and I would agree, it is definitely soft. Feel-wise, that's what I like. I will playing the Black tomorrow so I'm interested in seeing how it performs, especially in comparison to the Red.

I have almost 2 dozen of the older MTB left so I haven't gotten around to getting any of the new models. One of the guys I play with did get the sampler pack and gave me one of each, the Red and the Black. He has played the Red and feels he doesn't get the distance with it hat he gets with ProVs. I finally got around to playing the Red on several holes but it is difficult to give it an adequate review due to soft and wet fairways and the fact that I wasn't playing well. I'll give it a thorough review after I have had he chance to play if a few more times and then move onto the Black.

Finally, got around to getting the test pack. Glad I did. So far, very impressed.

I'm average swing speed guy (90-95 with the driver) and have definitely gravitated towards lower compression balls as I like soft feel. I got the test pack to really try out the MTB Black, but actually decided to play MTB Red first. Played 54 holes over a couple of days with a sleeve of the Reds and I'm surprised how much I liked the ball.

I got the Yellow version of the MTB Red and the finish was on point. Durability was good and the yellow color was bright and easy to spot. I was bracing for a clicky ball, but found it to have very nice feel. Ball preformed excellent off the driver and the extra spin was noticeable going into the green. Hit a few shots out of rough that still provided great spin into firmer greens.

Going play MTB Black for my next few rounds. I will say, I thought Black would fit my game better, but its really going to have to perform to beat Red. For me, the MTB Red was a very pleasant surprise.

You mentioned soft feel.  To me the Black is quite soft - let me know if you agree!

I think Black feels softer.

i would agree, but the red spins more.

When I switched from MTB ----> Black I was sort of shocked at how much softer the black is.  Hugely noticeable in my book.

Black is softer than Red.  Red is a firmer ball.  It spins a bit more but didn’t like the firmness and it felt heavy to me. Wasn’t as consistent as the Black, especially in the wind.  Both great balls but I’ll be playing the Black exclusively.

Have to brag.  Smell Red (yellow one)

#7 hole today. 172 yards, stongish left to right breeze. . Took a little off a 7 iron and turned it back into the breeze. Ball mark was about a foot short of the pin.
Unfortunately, I can't see that far, so didn't see it go in.  (Also remeber, elevation when talking distance)

That's awesome congrats!! Is it your 1st hole in one? Also glad to hear you stopped playing it and saved it as a memento. My 1st hole in one I never saw as well. We knew it was going to be close but to not see it not on the green, and the anticipation walking up to the hole/flag.... just an awesome feeling seeing it at the bottom of the cup. Damn man, once again congrats!! :drinks:

Thank you sir, appreciate it.

Kind of a funny side to it. I knew I had hit it well so while the others were hitting I went back to the cart and used the rangefinder to try and see how close it was. I told the other guy I couldn't see it and he said "then it's got to be in, it was right at it". In the meantime my partner jerks his tee shot way left towards the driving range (line of trees then OB). So before going to the green I went over to look for his ball. In the meantime the other two went to the green and looked and told me it was in. So I actually didn't get that highly anticipating walk to the cup, hoping it's in, but telling yourself it probably isn't.

It's my second one, the first one fortunately I watched all the way in.

Thank you again.

If you lost a Snell MTB-Black on the 16th hole at Eagle Glen in Corona CA today, there was a bunker over the green before the cliff you didn’t check.  Don’t worry though, I will take good care of it!IMG_1531606105.672328.jpg
