Going to give the Snell MTB a shot. The TPx is my favorite all time ball, so Ive always been intrigued with Snell.

I play the Wilson Staff Duo because I can get them for $13/dozen, and they are very soft.  I probably lose 2-3 balls per round here in the PNW because they will plug in the rough (sometimes fairway too) and be impossible to find, even if they are only a few feet from the fairway.

I play the 330s in the Warm temps but playing the Chrome Soft tru viz for the winter. It's way to soft for me but cold temps and leaves make this ball easier to play. NJ here as you can tell from my avatar!

I used Wilson Duo's last year liked them but don't have anymore. This winter I have Callaway Hex-Softs to use.
Soft balls work better in the winter, at least the guys I play with say so.

Here in New England you want a soft ball and one that's preferrably bright yellow to help with visibility.  As someone said earlier you can easily lose a ball in the fairway at this time of year (glare, etc.).  I typically play the Snell MTB during the year and switch to the Snell Get Summ (optic yellow) during the colder months as it's softer and very highly visible too (really stands out).  You can also use the Bridgestone E6 or the Wilson50/ Duo - they aren't as visible though.  Keeping in mind that you'll likely lose a ball or two during the round (glare, leaves, plugged, etc.) you're better off playing a less expensive ball too.

The Wilson Duo is hard to beat.  Especially when you can get them on sale at Rock Bottom Golf for $30 for three dozen.  

It's a prior generation model ball but I like it just fine and, at less than a buck each, don't feel compelled to dig around in the leaves looking for them like I do my more expensive ones.
