I'm pretty sure it would be the Nike one black.

I'm not totally sure though.

The Nike One Platinum is more like the Titleist Pro V1.

The Nike One Black is more like the Titleist Pro V1x.

The Titleist Pro V1 is not like the Taylormade TP Red or the Callaway Tour XI. The Taylormade TP Red and the Callaway Tour XI are lower spin balls while the Titleist Pro V1 is the high spin ball.

Just for accuracy purposes, it's the Callaway Tour ix, not xi.

Unless your swing speed is over 105 mph go with the Black.  The Platinum simply does not go as far unless you are swinging over 105.

The lower spinning balls would be the tp red, pro v1x, callaway tour ix, and nike one black.  The higher spinning balls would be the tp black, pro v1, callaway tour i, and nike one platinum.  But I believe the platinum is a ball meant for high swing speed players with considerable skill (ie tiger woods).  Because it was designed for the best player in the world.

Go with the Black. The Platinum is much higher spinning than any of your current balls.
