I have. It felt more like a better E6 than a worse B330.
Basically felt like a really good distance ball with some spin defeating qualities.

Titleist 915F 15* Diamana S+ Blue 70, R
Titleist 915Hd 20.5* set to 19.75*, Diamana S+ Blue 70, S, -1/2"

I see the TP5x mentioned here. It comes to mind for what you're talking about. It is a very good ball.

I don't think it's low spinning at all. At least not compared to a srixon xv or B330.

I've not tried the MTB but this would be the first time I've ever heard of it being mentioned as lower spin than similar Tour balls. Most people in the Snell thread seem to find it spins plenty.
Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

MTB is spinny off irons but not so off driver.

I've messed about a little with that AVX ball from Titleist and it seems to be lower spin than ProV, across the board. But they may or may not ever make that a real product so it's not something you'd want to switch to.

Yes. Not very spinny off driver. Stops when it hits the green.

Agree with this- AVX spins much less than the PROV/X. Less spin of any premium ball I have played. Nice one hop and stop performance
