The new Titleist NXT Tour and NXT golf balls are designed for a wide range of golfers seeking long distance with outstanding feel and control. The new Titleist NXT Tour golf ball provides average and highly skilled golfers with long distance off the driver, improved control with long irons and exceptional greenside performance.

Going Into Summer

I do prefer the Titleist Pro V1 (if I get them cheap) but the Titleist NXT Tour is a great ball and gives the biggest bang for the buck.

I played it for a while and just never really found anything about it that was all that great. To me it was like a cross between the e5 and the e6 with none of the strengths of either.

It's a good overall ball but I feel like you can find over balls out there that are more suited to one's individual game.

Not as long as the e5 and not really any longer than the e6 to talk about.

Just started palying the NXT Tour. I like, definitely more spin like I was looking for over the Bridgestone E5 I played for the summer, wish I tried these sooner. Softer, spinnier of irons and wedges, easier to control with driver/woods. I will be playing the NXT Tour for a while.

I played numerous rounds with the NXT Tour, and it did nothing for me. Much rather play the E6 from Bridgestone much more greenside spin,better feel and longer distance. Just one mans opinion.

Frankly I much prefer the Srixon Ad-333 to the NXT Tour ball and use the Ad-333 as my winter golf ball.

When taken into account how cheap the Maxfli BlackMax ball is right now, I wouldn't even consider the NXT Tour as the NXT is inferior in every aspect besides distance to the BlackMax.

Why pay $28/dozen for an inferior hard no-spin NXT Tour ball when you can get the Black Max ball for $20/dozen on Ebay ?

I don't get it  ;)

I gave it 3 stars......and this is the max I would give this overpriced ball.

I just picked up a dozen of these to try and am very happy with them.  I was able to consistently get my approach shots to check back with these which is something I have never been able to to much of.  Great all around performer and at a price point I can justify.  This is my new ball.

I like the NXT Tour a bunch but I recently started playing the DT/SOLO and I have noticed really no difference between the two, at least for my swing.  I will probably be going back and forth on which is right but for now it is the NXT.  I am a high handicap/medium swing speed player just for reference

Nothing about this ball do I care for. Distance isn't great, feel is only fair, spin......nope, none of that either. At $26+/dz it just stinks.
Lots of balls for ~$20-$25 that are MUCH better. Seems I gave my last dozen to a playing partner I like to beat! :)

This WAS my ball of choice.

It's long, has good trajectory, holds well on approach shots, durable, and still has the soft feel I like.
However, if I want to play a value ball, I'm not going to spend $40 (Canadian) when I can spend $30 on the comparable Nike Ignite.

I like the ball but it shreds as bad if not worse than the $40 plus balls.

SOft enough but not to mushy.

Great flight and distance but may be shorter with driver than the provi x.

This is on par as far as mid to tour priced balls. The cover shreds so easily though, more easily than any other ball i've played, even the tour ones. (Platinum, Bridgestones, ProV1s). Play the Top Flite Gamer if you want a tour/bargain style ball. Similar characteristics, but more durable cover.

Nice feel and control with the putter or wedge.  Don't love it off the tee.  Chews up very easily.  $25-$30 balls are the awkward middle children.

Nearly as good as a Pro v1 for me, and cheaper. Great balls that come at a reasonable price and are easy to use on and around the greens.

Started playing the NXT Tours last week and love them!  Switched from Callaway's HX Hot Bite(too soft for me), and am pleased so far.  Covers are more durable by far, long off the driver and hit/stop off my irons.  Havnt tried the new ProV's yet, until then I'll be smashin the NXT Tour.

I will say I don't like them.  I am a Titleist fan generally I love the ProV, like the ProVX and have played their balls since I started playing.  I generally prefer a urethane covered ball but will play some of the lower spin balls on occasion especially if I am just messing around, playing in a scramble or playing on very soft or shaggy greens in the winter or early spring.  

I won a free dozen of them and also was given some of the regular NXT's.  for some reason the NXT tours don't seem to spin any more than the regular NXT's and they seem to fly short for me.  It might just be my swing characteristics but I always seem to be 1/2 a club shorter and my short game sure doesn't like them.  The regular NXT seems to fly really long with a short game feel and spin that is adequete at least on slower greens, probably because they seem to launch pretty high even with short shots so the loss in spin is made up for with a little softer landing.  

They are a quality ball but they just don't fit my game.

That's odd that you are 1/2 club shorter with these.  I've never noticed a distance difference between these and any other balls I've played

Didn't care for these at all.  Didn't like the feel off the club face.  Given the price I'll stick with cheaper 2 piece balls that give better performance.

I played the NXT S for the first time today and I like the ball so far.  Distance was there, feel around the greens was good and the putter felt ok also. It  has a softer feel than I am use to but for a winter ball I think it will work.

I have always liked the NXT Tour but have trouble seeing white balls on some days, so I prefer a yellow ball.  But now that Titleists has seen the light and made the NXT Tour S in yellow I like it.  Unfortunately they repriced it also and so it is about $5/dozen more than the Srixon Q-star which is also a good mid tier ball and comes in yellow.  But the Titleists ball is better around the greens and the yellow seems for visible to me.

Has anyone noticed that the current NXT Tours tend to shred a bit with your wedges? Other than that, I really enjoy playing the tours, not a bad bargain golf ball if you don't want to shell out the extra cash for ProV1s.

My buddy plays Pro V1 and I play the NXT Tour. Close in distance and spin for us at least. Great ball. I get a good carry and roll from it. Reminds me of the old DT Wound.
