I always see alot of comments and topics about which ball is better etc. but just curious to see what everyone uses?

I currently use Tour B X or Pro V1x as I found at first the TP5x felt great but that quickly faded after more use. I think the chrome soft feels like a sock.

Most underrated in my eyes is the Srixon ZStar and ZStar XV both great performing golf balls.

Love the Pro V1. Foundca Tp5x tonight and played it next to the Prov1. Similar distance...softer feel....didnt like the spin around the green. Or probably just not used to it.

Lately I have been playing TP5x and have really enjoyed it. I donít normally play any other premium ball besides the Pro V1, so I canít say for sure itís my favorite of the group, but it will definitely stay in the rotation.

Same here.

I used to play Prov1x for years until I tried Snell's original MTB and I haven't bought a Prov since. The Snell's are $20 less per dozen and the performance is the same.

Prefer the ProV1 out of all but as of late I am enjoying the Chrome Softs a lot. They are soft, not ProV1 pillowy soft but I feel like their feedback off the clubface, especially on and around the greens.

I loved playing with Titleist Tour Balata as a young man, i could watch it turn into an egg shape.  By todays standard balls I think the Srixon Z-Star is the softest feel available. And a lot more durable.

I am in a similar boat. I play ProV1's and will continue to do so until my current supply runs out. However, I found a couple TP5x's in the rough and also received a sleeve in a golf tournament. After playing a couple rounds with them to try them out, I am extremely impressed with the feel and ball flight I was getting from them. I am really glad I stumbled onto them, because otherwise I don't think they would have even been on my radar. Definitely worth a try if anybody is curious.

I'd love to hear the progression of ball choices. Here's mine: Maxfli Revolution --> Titleist Tour Balata 100 --> Titleist Professional 90 --> Titleist ProV1
Be well. Do good. Love each other.

I use Bridgestone e7's/e6's, sometimes the Tour BX S. However, I do prefer the Nike RZN's. I have a sleeve left and am afraid to use them and lose them.

Gamer Tour. Fits my budget, soft feel, I am able to check shots into the green with them just as well as any other urethane ball.

If I play a surlyn ball, however it’s usually the Srixon Q Star, although I have been enjoying the Wilson Duo Soft/Optix lineup.
