I use a B330s because it's the most spin I can find with a mid irons and shorter. I can take spin off easily but I can't add but so much. It also allows me to control my trajectory easier. I use to like the V1 '16 but found the 330s to work better for me this past winter.

I've got no brand loyalty.  I didn't vote because I use various choices listed.  Right now my ball cabinet includes B330RX, Z-Star, Z-star XV, Chrome Speed, FG Tour X, Maxfli U6 Tour Soft.  I can use just about any urethane ball interchangeably.  I'm not good enough to notice any performance variation between them, although I can notice difference in feel.

  100% agree.  I have done head to head testing on the course with many balls (each getting 9 holes and only looking at scores relation to par) and for a 10 capper, I play all equally as well. Some may be a few yards longer, others may have more feel.... at the end of the day they all play pretty eqqual on overall performance.
  Since the scores have seemed to be the same wither way, I am not more focused on how a ball feel off the irons.  Putting, even though I can feel a slight variation of firmness of the cover, it does not effect my stroke.  It just a feel for speed just like you need to feel the speed of a green anyway. 5-10 minutes on the practice green with the ball of choice for the day and I am good to go.

IMO - Index should not be the determining factor for ball choice.  A person should test various balls and know why he chooses one certain ball.  I chose new ProV1X because of how it behaves around the green and how it feels off my irons and woods.  Maybe when I am 70, I'll go to a different ball, then again... :beach:

7.5 handicap = Typically play Bridgestone e6 (moved to the Soft version this year). Mainly its about value... Definitely not good enough to detect the slight differences in the better balls, outside of the sound and the corresponding sense of feel. Softer/quieter feel is better for me.

I voted "other" in part because I use a fair assortment of golfballs.  My primary choices are the ZStarXV/ZStar and the FG Tour.  If I had to pick only one out of the group, I would go with the FG Tour.  

I specifically like the 2016 version, which I find to be better than the first couple years; the early FG Tour versions were a little less wonderful in the wind, and I feel like they've addresses this very well with the 2016 model.  Add in the soft feel and sometimes crazy spin around the greens and it's a winner.
