I played the Elixr golf ball today next to a titleist pro v1x.  This was my first round of the year so take this for what it is, A weekend hackers thoughts!  I will say that I found the elixr to hold it's line well and had a much straighter flight.  Distance seem to be close with the elixr 5 yards longer at most.  Spin for me was very similar.  My only problem I had all day with the elixr was on the first outside hole, first outside swing of the year.  I nutted a driver right down the middle of the fairway, twirled my club and picked up my tee without watching it land.  Playing partner gave a nice ball reply and off we drove to our balls.  As I drove down the fairway my ball was nowhere to be found.  My playing partner and I looked for about 10 minutes since no one was behind us but never could find it.  I joked that I hit it so well it disintegrated.  Lol  I truely love everything about this ball.  I have just found my new ball of choice.

The Elixir look promising, before the round, I chipped and putted with it, felt pretty good and even exhibited some check.

I put it into play and compared it against the E6 Speed (my regular ball) on the course.

Drives: I hit 2 drive on 2 different holes. I was driving great that day but these drives with the Elixir, the ball ballooned with a fade spin. The holes before and the holes after, I hit the drives great with the E6 Speed, point and shoot and I was perplexed by the way the Elixir ball behaved. Low spin head and low spin shaft. This really killed me as the hole was a demanding drive and long, it did not even come close to getting it up there.

2nd shot irons, chipping and putting was good though. Although, nothing special.

I am done with this experiment. I tried and this is just not the ball for me. Back to the E6 Speed and the B330 for me.

I've played my test ball and it was great - could definitely put it in play alongside the Pro V's of the world.  It's stacked up against the other Tour level balls, so I wouldn't expect it to play similar to e6.  You could try their Avant - I tested that on a SkyTrak and it played near identical to the NXT Tour & B330-RX (which I played last year after moving on from the e6).

I got two samples from OnCore the - the soft new ball and the core ball that goes straighter ?? Cant remember the names of the balls.

I played both sleeves in a round and left them all out on the course (intentionally) the soft tour type ball was ok but the core straight ball was like hitting a rock that weighed far more than any golf ball should - I would not buy any of these balls.

...thats the thing, the proV spins too much for me. The 2017 E6 Speed and 2016 B330 are very similar flight for my swing and driver, just the B300 is a touch harder and goes further but it has a lil more side spin.

Now if I find an Avant, i'll try it but I think I am done with the testing of balls on my end. Now, the Elixir may work for others but it just ain't for me, thats all.

ps for a while, I thought the Elixir was going to be like my fave ball of all time, the Taylodmade Red LDP, marketing made it sound like it was (in my mind), oh well.

I took my sleeve out yesterday to play. I didnt get a good shot at trying it as I pulled driver first hole and pulled it left into the pond.  Ball felt nice off the club face though.  Second hole was a par 3 with the wind coming right at us.  Hit a pitching wedge and the ball just got caught up in the wind.  About 30 yards short of what I needed.  Just figured it was wrong club choice.  Drove the ball on the next hole and pulled it left into the woods.  That was completely my error, but the ball felt kind of soft.  Dropped the final ball I had, pulled three wood, and took a swing.  The ball felt awful here... I made really good contact and it felt like a marshmallow.  Decided to go back to my nikes after that for the rest of the round... I mean i probably didnt give them a fair chance, but these balls were not for me.

I do think the ball is slightly softer then what I'd prefer, but acceptable....I think the Oncore site says 85 compression, but I did not think it felt overly soft and I really dislike low compression balls.  I would say slightly softer than a prov1, etc., So if you need or are used to a firmer ball the ELIXR may be a difficult transition feel wise.

Played it for several holes today against the KSIG and B330RXS. I did not like it off the M1 driver at all, but the irons felt very good. Putter was just ok.

Distance was a little shorter that the other two balls with the driver. I appreciate Oncore sending a sleeve for $3.99, but I will have to pass.

I just pulled the trigger on the free sleeve yesterday. I'm curious about these balls and will post up what I find, assuming I keep them long enough to tell you, lol.

I was at Wegman's earlier this morning and saw that they were selling a dozen of ELIXRs for $29.99.  They may have a partnership due to both companies being from NY, while Wegman's has locations out into New England. I had never heard of the company or balls until I saw the end-cap set up and read that it has a urethane cover.
