Longest drive ever was with a TM lethal.  That said, it wasn't the ball that made it the longest.. it was a combination of other factors (Vegas heat and altitude, a cartpath and a down wind breeze).  All total it was in the 490 range based on how much I had left into the hole.

Played a scramble yesterday and used a Pinnacle Gold off the tee.
Silly straight and long!!
I went back to my regular ball for irons and greens but that ball was long.

A ProV1x for me, I'd say a SuperHot55 would be next.  I tend to play the SuperHot55's in the colder months.

Don't generally see much of a difference but I tried  Pinnacle Rush and it really seemed to go.  I tried hitting into hard fast greens,  hit center and bounced and rolled over.  Hit a Nitro on the screws, felt horrible but it most definitely longer then a tour ball.   Hit it off center and forget it.

My longest drive was with a 2015 ProV1X. 407 yards. -20ft elevation change, 30+ mph downwind. 105mph ±5mph SS. My average total is 250-275yds. Not really sure how the stars aligned for the 407 yd drive but it was awesome. Rode the wind, I guess. Ball finished on the front edge of the green on a 417 yd hole. Golf is fun.

I'm changing this after this week. Played in a charity scramble for a good cause and on a whim I decided to hit this ball I found off the tee just to see what it would do. I ended up hitting for the rest of the round off the tee. It is by a good margin, the longest ball off the tee I have ever hit, including the Deperado and Bandit balls. I did a little research and I guess this ball is illegal as well, but man is it long. Very surprised considering the name. The new scramble ball of choice.

Hole was 405 on a municipal course. Gravel road behind green and it was crazy dry out. I hit it past the green onto the gravel road. Craziest thing Iíve ever seen....had to have hit a sprinkler head or something and then just ran forever. 115-120SS back then.

I hit one specific tee shot with a B330 last year that cleared a fairway bunker (214 carry by my laser) and I believe cleared the mound behind the bunker (about 218-219 yards). Dead calm, very slightly uphill, not particularly warm day.

That doesn't sound like much to most GolfWRX'ers but given that my normal driver carry is about 190 and I hit one 200 in the air maybe once a round if I'm swinging really well, that was probably my personal best non-wind-aided, non-downhill carry distance by at least a dozen yards.

No idea why it happened. It just felt like a normal driver swing with good contact. Guess I must have hit on some magic combination of spin and launch for that one shot or something. Man, I'd be something if I could carry it 215 in the air every time. I'd probably be able to break 80 more than once every few years!

P.S. On the other hand that ball ended up in deep rough with a tree between me and the green and I ended up having make a longish putt for bogey on an easy Par 4. So maybe if I always drove it longer I'd shoot in the 90's instead of 80's...

Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

Dunlop LoCo Crazy Long... lives up to its name but absolutely appalling around the green and for putting.

Callaway Tour ix

I'm not sure I ever hit any particularly long drives with that one but it may have had the most spin off a full wedge shot of any ball I've ever used. For a while I had a brand-new set of the original Mack Daddy wedges and was using the Tour iX. My goodness, that was a spinny combination!
Tour ix definitely spinniest recent ball, but still had nothing on nike TA or rule 35 blue. I got the feeling the ix was the closest thing to a real tour ball sold at retail, they seemed to perform really good at higher swing speeds but were a bit firm and clicky feeling for us mortals.
