I've been using NXT's for years and now that they are discontinued I'm confused to what ball is the closest comparison. Reading reviews about the Tour Soft, seems to me that it's a completely different golf ball than the NXT. Has anyone decided on what golf ball they would replace the NXT with?

Tour Soft replaced the NXT Tour S and the 3-piece NXT Tour was simply discontinued with no direct replacement. My recommendation is to A) load up on NOS NXT Tours or B) use this as an opportunity to evaluate some different balls (plenty of urethane options in the same price range that the NXT Tour was).

I still  have some NXTs, and have bought  some grade 5A recycled.
  The 2 that compare for me are the  Bridgestone E6, and the Srixon Q-star.
Sometimes, I'll  find a new ball and play it for a few holes to compare it to the NXT.

Another couple of  balls that  are different, but nice are the Titleist Tru-Soft, and Callaway Super-soft.  They are cheaper than the NXT,too!

Try Q Star Tour. Will be softer than the NXT Tour but urethane and good greenside spin.

I have been playing the Tour Soft for a few weeks.  In my opinion it is not much different than the NXT Tour, which I have played extensively in the past.
On Sundays, I used to play hickory

^^^Glad you got a laugh.

Sheesh, try to help out and you get slammed for it.

OP - I cannot help you with your question, sorry.  I didnt know you created additional threads in the ball forum, I was on mobile app and dont typically visit that forum (only on occasion).  You could look at the golf digest ball review to see what ball might act the same on shots, they do a spin chart thing.  Best of luck to you.

I thought the irony was funny, FWIW.  I seldom look at the ball forum either.

To the real question, I played NXT Tour for 3-4 years: 8 hdcp with decent short game.  I took the opportunity last fall to reevaluate what I wanted in a ball: more green side control.  This happened to coincide with becoming a Costco member. I now play the KSig 4-piece. Better all-around ball quite honestly.

Not sure if they are the closest comparison to NXT Tour, but Chrome Soft and Srixon Z Star are in the bag right now.  Z Star may actually be a little better around the green, but both get the job done at a decent price.  Probably would buy whichever is on sale.

I was one of the reviewers chosen for the TourSoft reviews in the "Pre-Release" forum.  I found them very similar to the NXT, but softer.  Lousy deal for your money, if you ask me, but they're the closest equivalent in the Titleist lineup to the NXT, if you're keen to stay in the family.

Personally, there are too many balls that perform better for lower prices for me to even give them a glance.  I like the Kirkland 3-piece much better, to be frank, and they'll only set you back about $15 a dozen after tax and shipping.

thank you for your response, maybe it was time to find a different golf ball, after using the NXT for many years I guess it was more of a habit than anything else, do you have any suggestions that would be an upgrade from the NXT, thanks

A lot of that depends on what performance characteristics you want from a ball...soft feel, green-side spin, low spin on long irons/wood, etc.  The following are good/great balls at the same or lesser price than the NXT Tour and Tour Soft:

Taylormade Project (a) - urethane cover, 3 piece ($25 - 35)
Kirkland 3-piece (Costco online only) - urethane cover, ($23.99 for 2 dozen)
Bridgestone e6 - surlyn cover, 3 piece ($30)
Srixon Q-Star Tour - Urethane, 3 piece ($20-30)

Note:
  • You can also fine many top-of-the line urethane balls from previous seasons from TM (Tour Preferred), Callaway (Chromesoft), and Bridgestone (B330) for the price of the Titleist Tour Soft.
  • I haven't mentioned many of the NXT comparable surlyn balls from Callaway, Taylormade or any of the urethane, tour-quality balls from small brands like Snell and Vice as I don't have much experience with them.
  • You can also find a lot of deals for prices lesser than what I mentioned above from online-only retailers (rock bottom golf, golfballs.com, etc).  I pulled those prices from Golf Galaxy's website, and they're by no means the cheapest out there.

Greenside spin is a nice benefit for a golf ball but I also don't want crazy spin that it affects my driver where I'm very streaky but solid with the rest of the clubs

Is there such a ball that has good green side spin but won't be super spinny off the driver face?

My first gut-check response was going to be "any range ball ever" but I realized that's probably not helpful.  If you want to stay Surlyn, I'd expect Top Flite Gamer or Gamer Soft to be pretty similar though both are probably a little softer.  If you want to go urethane, I'd say look at Q-Star Tour (great sale prices right now) and K-Sig3 (back in stock, members only) as good low-price options.

I have been playing the Tour Soft for a few weeks.  In my opinion it is not much different than the NXT Tour, which I have played extensively in the past.

I agree.

Ironically, he posted this twice in the golf ball forum and got zero replies. He posts it in the equipment forum and gets replies with the first one telling him to move it to the golf ball forum.



Do you feel better now - are you the hall monitor for posts and topics made by people?

The intent of my post wasn’t to “slam” you and I understand you were just trying to be helpful with your reply. But, come on, even you have to find some humor in this series of events:

OP, golfballtest has a compression and cover hardness testing of nearly 200 balls. It hasn't been updated since 2016, but it may help you find a more recent series of balls that are close to the NXT Tour: http://www.golfballt...rdness-ratings/

Bridgestone E6 Soft and the Titleist Tour Soft are both good mid priced balls. Can wrap a good deal on the E6 at two for 50 right now.

I played a found nxt a day ago, had been awhile. It was as I'd remembered it- long, and decent spin, but a tad hard.
The new TM Project S is pretty close, but it's softer, and a touch less spin.
Maxfli Ufli Speed is also close, but not as good of a ball.
Looking back I wasn't super fond of them, but playing it again, it was pretty solid, and occupied a unique niche.

Truly, most of the good balls today have spin around the green and less off the driver. I haven't played NXT in several years.
I normally play the CSX18, but the Srixon Z Star and Z Star XV were on sale for $20 a dozen and I bought a couple dozen. They are almost as good as my CSX, but at half the price!
I also got to test the Titleist Tour Soft balls and found them nice enough, but at $35 per dozen, they are way over priced.
