B330 all around best for my game.  I've tried them all with the exception of Vice and Snell.

Top Flite Gamer Tour. I had a $70 credit to golf galaxy and got 4 dozen of these. Never expected to like a Top Flite. Also have the better part of 6 dozen KSigs but I think I'll work through the Gamer Tours first

Been happily playing Z-Stars for a few years, but have been really pleased with the performance of the new Q-Star Tour ball. Super straight and long, decent spin plus very durable too. I normally hit a draw and with this ball I can't aim at the right rough anymore 'cause that's where it ends up!

Have 4 doz. more coming next week!

I just can't narrow it down to one. I love both the XV and TP5X, so I switch between those two. I just can't beat the performance of those two with any other ball.

I had been bouncing between a few, notable the TPX, 330RX, and Hex Chrome +. I decided to just stick with the 330Rx for right now basically since the softer feel makes for less transition on those days when I have to put the better balls away in favor of some last generation E6 until I can get my swing back.

I wish I could vote, but I haven't completely settled.

Right now I have the Vice Pro Soft yellow and red as my color balls. Other than that I am back and forth between 2016 TPX and Snell MTB.

Tp5x all day. The flight and distance are head and shoulders above anything I've personally ever tried. I put all my Nike rzn tour blacks, my chromesofts, and my zstars on the bay as soon as I got home from the course after my 1st round with the tp5x's

Slazenger, the blue 'feel'(?) ones. I have two black cats. I mark my ball by adding 'relaxed muscle' to one of the cats on the ball (just like my oldest).

I have settled on the Volvik S3 in orange.  I prefer the color options on the S4 (Green/Pink) but my swing speed isn't quite high enough to make use of that extra compression.  Both are excellent balls.

A couple of years back, I bought a few boxes of prior year (2 years back) Bridgestone B-330s as I can't afford to pay the prices for premium balls. Fast forward to this year, I realized I do not lose balls as I used to. In fact I still have a dozen of the Bridgestone balls.

So I bought a brand new dozen of premium balls last April. I still have a sleeve of these balls. I had to discard a few of them after a few rounds or I scuffed it so bad hitting cart paths and trees.

If you do not lose balls, you should try some premium balls .... prior generations. Their prices are very competitive.

I play Pro V1 just because I can order a custom number.  I think the Vice Pro and Vice Pro Soft are great. I do not like the Chrome Soft.  The B330s perform amazingly well, but I really don't like their double dimple pattern, I can't look at it.

Whatever I grab from my bag.  I have a mix of Ksg, TM Lethal, Callaway Chrome Soft and Srixon XV.  I don't see a huge difference between them so I just play whichever I grab.
