Longest ball off the tee you ever hit?

Truthfully there was a 20mph tailwind in the middle of July in Texas. Hard, browning burnt out hardpan fairways with the tail wind had more to do with that drive than the ball lol.

My longest drive ever was with one. Northern Illinois, dry, windy, a little downhill 565 yd par 5. I smashed my 975J-VS down the right side, kept rolling and rolling. Ends up at the 150 yd marker. 415 yards later, my dad calls me an a****** and flips me off.

I second this. Still have 11 new balls left. Always keep one in my pocket as my backup/OB replacement ball. I'd play it full time if I had more and I'm not paying the Ebay prices.

I am trying to remember what ball I hit 348 yds with, but I can't. It was last year - 41 yds from the flag on a 389 yd hole. Probably a ProV1x.
I did plaster a ball into water that fronted a green on a 420 yd par 4, but that was wind and dry condition aided. That was 1992, so it could have been anything.

No long back-story, just a freakishly long ball off the tee for me, and had some spin around the green. Still have a dozen of the Tour JD (John Daly) sitting on my mantle that my cousin sent me for Christmas one year autographed by JD himself at one of his Hooters stops in Vegas. I'm never hitting any of these, as they could be worth a fortune if JD ever wins a Major again!

Playing a course in Arizona. Par 5. TP Red ldp uniquely marked. Hook one off the tee in the houses left, crosses over at about 210 yard, roughly. I hear no crash and feeling thankfull. Re-tee, hitting straight about 270 with roll. Hit that shot, heading to the hole and another 100 plus yards ahead of my re-tee shot is my first. Unmistakable markings on a not so common ball..not so sure how far a ball can bounce off stucco or Spanish tiles, but 370+ is not possible for me even with a sprinkler head or cart path bounce..somebody had to hit my ball from their yard down the fairway as a joke.

On the Pro V side, for the first few generations, I wouldnt play new PRO V1's regulaly b/c of cost and I rarely found good deals, but some things I noticed when I came across them
I used to play 2 balls off the tee a lot - particularly on new courses to me - one with 3 wood and one with driver to see what worked better. When I hit another companies top level ball with a driver and the PRO V1 X with a 3 wood, they went almost the same distance.
The other telling sign was the guy I used to play with I was generally 30 yds longer off the tee than he was. One day he was complaining how sometimes it just jumped out of nowhere I was 50-60 yds longer for a stretch or a whole round.
The final thing - back then I had my normal swing, but if I got the club in the right spot going back I knew I could swing as hard as I wanted and I'd hit it good. When I felt that combined with a PRO V1 X- I would get huge gains - much more than with another ball.
Once I found a source for good quality used balls, I would always try new companies (Looking for the performance with that old balata feel), would convince myself I liked it until I went back to the PRO V1X.
Today I think some companies have caught them - while still being a good choice for my score/or being complete rocks. Came to the party late on the TP RED LDP's, but I believe those would have held their own. 2014 and after editions of the B330 I think are slightly longer for me, as was the Taylormade Lethal (in fact the LETHALs are probably my favorite feel since the old balatas). Havent tried a TP-5 yet, but I think the TPx was a tiny step backwards from the Lethal. It's still in my choices to play, but I liked the Lethal better. Other contenders distance wise for me didnt spin enough going into the greens.
Picked up some Nike RZN Platinums late last year for 8 bucks to finish the season, and those hold their own as well with great control. Liked them enough that I got another couple dozen to get me thru at least until summer.
