I know that some of you will say at my SS you'll say I shouldn't be playing any of these but I consistently hit he ball 260 yds. and have tried the Pro V1, Z Star, B330S, and Callaway Tour IS and find they don't go as far off the driver.  I know the game is from 150 in but would like your input on this question.  Thanks.

Don't worry if anyone says that. You know your game and what works for you. My swing speed is right about the same as yours and I found the Z-Star longer than the Pro V. That said, If I had to choose one of those it would be the Pro V for the better all around performance. The Z-Star is great but I haven't seen a ball yet that is better on the green off a wedge than the Pro V...(in my personal experience).

However, I don't play either of those regularly due to price. I still lose a few too many balls to do so.

I know its not on the OP's list, but I must agree with Mstng5. Great feel, great spin, and its longer for me than the z-star, bstones, and pro v1. Cannot comment on the Cally's

Another ball not on your list but the Taylormade TP black is mighty long for me (I do swing faster than you). With that being said I game the Z-star X mainly and it is among the longest balls I have played that still have good green side spin.

The Z-Star, B330-RX (not sure about the RXS), the Wilson FG Tour, and TP Red LDP are the only urethane balls with lower compression than the current ProV1. My SS is in the high 90's and I play the ProV1. It is just as long as any othe tour ball I have tried (still havent tried the Z-Star, FG Tour, or Penta) but it feels the best off every club and reacts the best for me around the green.

Most of the balls in this category are with in a yard or two of each other off the tee for me. If you are looking for a dramatic increase in distance by switching to another urethane ball you arent going to find it.

Hate to say it only because it was not on you original list. But another vote for Nike Tour D! Not to mention with the price drop and you can get a dozen for $30! I am going to try the the Taylormade TP Black post the Golf Digest ball test. The Bridgestone B330 RX would be good try for you also. I do like the Tour D!

I'd suggest you stay away from the B330 maybe try the B330s. You may have a tough time with some of the firmer, less spinny balls like those. Your SS may not compress the ball enough to get the most distance. I love the B330S

YOu might want to try the Wilson Zip or the Top Flite gamer. I have played both and get great distance as well as soft feel around the greens. As far as the premium big money balls, I like the Srixon Z start much better than the Pro V's.  

I believe Edwin watts has 15 pack of Wilson Zips for about 15 bucks. I think the Gamers can be found at Wal-mart. Both are great value balls that play much better than their price indicates. Just my 2 cents..good luck on finding the right ball.

It has alot to do with your driver and swing as well not just club speed. The z star was very long for me off of my r9460 but is 30 yards shorter than a pro v1x off my ping g15. That ball spins like crazy off my driver.

The interaction between the club head and the ball will determine how far the ball will go and in which direction. There is a relationship between the speed of the club head and the initial velocity of the ball. This relationship depends on the coefficient of restitution of the ball, which varies between different types of balls. When the ball is struck by the club, it is deformed and flattened by the force of impact (balls with harder cores deform less than softer balls). In general, a harder ball will travel further than a softer ball because it deforms less and will efficiently transfer more energy from club to ball. During the impact between the ball and club head, kinetic energy is transferred and stored as the ball tries to regain its original shape. This coefficient of restitution is quite similar to the restoring force we discussed in class. To obtain maximum distance in the drive, a ball must be selected that maximizes restitution for the club speed. If the chosen ball is too soft for the club speed, too much energy will be spent deforming the ball and not enough energy will be stored in the ball. Similarly, if the ball is too hard for the club speed, then the ball will not deform enough, and again, will not transfer adequate energy.
There are three main elements which, in theory, determine the distance a ball travels. This neglects the effects of wind/air resistance. The distance a ball travels will be determined by the initial speed of the ball, the angle at which it is hit into the air, and any spin that has been imparted on the ball by the club. Good backspin on a ball will cause lift and yield a longer shot, while poor spin may cause the ball to slice to the right or hook to the left. From simple physics we all know that a greater initial velocity and larger initial angle will produce a longer shot, although once your angle gets too large, then your distance will start to decrease again. The optimum angle for a simple trajectory problem to achieve maximum distance is 45 degrees. However, with golf, because of the spin on the ball, air/wind resistance, and other factors, this angle is generally less (for maximum distance) and varies from one situation to another.
