OK, had a bit of an epiphany tonight. I got out on our course in the evening with few people out there (high heat today). I practiced with hitting 2 or 3 balls each hole. I recently had a buddy from our club say, "You gotta hit the front of our greens". I took that to heart. And, tonight I inserted the Q Star Tour into my practice. This was very interesting, because I can drive that ball a long way compared to my normal Z Star XV. the Q Star went very long and straight, in comparison. The impact was that I was left with substantially shorter approaches. the Q Star runs out about 50% longer after hitting the green. But, overall, the ball played much better for me. So, a ball that is less spinny actually performs better for me on our challenging course with hard greens. Tonight, for whatever reason (more water and a little more growth) our greens were a reasonable speed (probably an 8 or 9 vs the recent 11s or 12s we've been seeing). Anyway, I thought I'd share. And, I appreciate the input on this thread.

I get Pro V1s as gifts and play them.

When I buy my own, they're much less expensive Top Flite Gamers.

Since they stopped making wound balls, which I hated, I don't notice the difference between any of the brand name balls to be honest.

Perhaps  a better player might.
