No love for the FG Tour? That's fine. Keeps more on the shelf for me to buy!

It's either the Bridgestone b330 RX used, or the Srixon Q star tour new.

That is a good ball.  I tried some and if I didn't have a ton of others I would use it.  I have some many Chrome Soft's and B330RX's, I am using them!

I have been playing Taylormade Tour Preferred balls since 2014 and had been playing the 2016 ball.  I tried the Kirkland Signature ball and like for full shots.  The spin from 60 yards is just wasn't there for me.  It felt a bit firm putting but I could get used to that.  In the end the Ksig wasn't the ball for me.  I tried the TP5 and am not sure if I'm sold on it.  Maybe not enough shots/rounds with it.  I picked up 6 dozen 2016 Tour Preferred on eBay and will be gaming these for the rest of the season and through next year.

I picked up 6 dozen more of the 2016 Tour Preferred on eBay for $138 (that includes the shipping charge).  For $23/dozen they might be a little more than the KSig but for a ball I can count on on every shot it is worth it.

  I picked up 3 dozen on an Ammo box off RBG for $20 / dozen.  Good ball but I really like my Srixon XV 2017 I got for cheap even better.

I still have about 30 balls left of the 2016 TP - all #5.  If you need a deal on more let me know.

Not that I'm trying to jack his offer...but if you're wanting to unload some of those 2016 TP, let me know. I absolutely love the ball (and #5 is my preferred number).

I understand the CS is a good ball. But, what are the advantages of the Truvis part?

Easier to see ball in all around, they say it makes the ball look larger at address, so I have been told? not surer about that part

As much as I love Chrome Soft... I think I sadly am sticking with ProV1 2016. CS is such a pleasure to hit and putt with, but it flies too high for me on my short irons. I notice a much lower flight from the Prov1 which with my wedges is much more ideal.

With that said though, I think next year I'll likely be switching to TP5 as it spins as much (if not more) than ProV but the feel is a bit softer, which I really like. I played some Nike RZN Platinums this year also, which I did really like a lot, but I don't want to get hooked on a ball that's no longer in production.

I played the yellow/black Truvis yesterday and liked the looks of it over the normal CS in yellow that I use.  I need to find some AAAA grade or better in the white/red ones to try!

  I like them all,  I really like the white and green sold at Dicks and GG.  I also have white - pink and white with red and blue Truvis.  They have pretty much covered most colors at some point along the way.

Since I play the Chrome Soft in yellow anyway, the Truvis in yellow/black isn't much different.  It is a bit different but not alot.  I think the white/red ones would fit me better.  The red/white and blue ones would be cool to hit I think too!  :)
