As Autumn comes to the northeast, I need a ball that will be most visible among the leaves on the ground. Obviously, yellow, orange and red will no longer be the best. Are there any white balls which seem brighter than the others?

Srixon white is very bright and they don't discolor like some others.

+ 1. Agreed^^^.

My srixon XV's  are almost weirdly bright white.

However a volvik vivid pink or red might be the just the ticket for fall golf.

After playing Bridgestone and TP5 all year I played srixon q Star tour for 9 holes Saturday. It was so white it was almost distracting at times.

I try to buy yellow when possible, but once the leafs drop, I find pink the best. ;)

Have to agree the Srixon balls are the brightest white I've seen. I hear the Volvik's, matte white balls are very bright too.

Another vote for Srixons. Cally csx holds its whiteness well too.

If you're after bright white, definitely look at Srixon. I tried the Z-Star XV late last fall and it was way too white for my tastes. I couldn't play it. Having grown up playing balata way back in the day, a ball doesn't look right to me unless it's slightly off-white.

The Volvik matte white looks like an LED bulb glowing in the rough.  Vice's matte white is a little less intense, but I think it is a much better ball.

I used to play srixons a lot but recently tried the QST and the whiteness was kind of offputting to me as others have said. Oddly it’s the only time I can ever remember thinking that despite having played them a lot and switching back and forth between brands for years.
