I, personally, don't think the ball has anything to do with distance - more technique in swinging. I've heard people rave about new balls like the proV1 but they're out of my price range, for starters, and I have no problem with TopFlites.
I think you should concentrate on your swing - before you go looking for any magic bullet (ball).
Ya, something about you old guys (71) year old's anyway, I've been arguing with a friend of mine (he's real old..71 ish) and I'm real young (66 ish) anywho..I like the new technology balls and he still likes the
TOp ROcks. I have to admit that the SOB still out drives me..well sometimes.
I truthfully think that the golf ball is the one big advantage that we older guys have. You really do need to check of several of the mid to upper price range balls and dial in.

Illegal, but your buddies will never know....

Great ball for seniors, because of its low compression. Not so good for the rest of us.
Now only if there were just an easy a fix for seniors' grumpy attitudes and incessant need to talk to complete strangers all the time LOL....

If you're not a senior, what are you doing here? We talk to strangers because we have outlived our friends.

There is an interesting ball test at uintagolf.com Out of 63 balls tested using 110, 100, 90, 80, and 70 swing speeds swung by a robot, the Cally Pearl was in the top five in all speed categories. No other ball did that.

Incidently, it is by far the best-selling two-piece ball in the UK. No mean feat when you see the enormous marketing spends behind Titleist, Callaway etc. etc.

For impure distance, ie, some spin on approach shots but still seriously long, Callaway's Pearl.
Jones/Ortiz 4 wood 17*
Kasco hybrid 23*
Adams Idea Black CB2 irons 26, 29, 33, 37, 41, 45*
Callaway MD3 S grind 52, 56, C grind 60, PM grind 64*
Tom Slighter Needle 450g, 3* loft, 74* lie

You two must be a retired comedy team... right?

First thing I did was go from the SGI irons to Wilson Ci7. Of course irons won't help your driver question.
My twin boys have been wanting me to try the Nike Power Distance Soft balls they have been using. At the same time my wife decided to join me and play some. I'm in Dick's and they have these MC Lady balls selling at 2 dozen for $12.
Well you know what I'm going to say, I was playing with the Nike PD Soft and hit one OB and took a drop and decided to hit one the MC Lady balls. A lot of good reviews from guys.
Hit just as good as the Nike balls, I personally think a little longer, they stop on the greens and they cost $.50 a ball. I bought 10 dozen of them.
I think my manhood will be able to handle it.
EDIT: After much research I have discovered that this ball was a big deal in the early 2000's and having come late to the party I'm sure many already know about it. However, it is still a great ball and I'm glad I have a closet full of them.
