Probably just me but I feel more focused over a putt or shot with the yellow ball...
I play at a club that allows sixsomes and we play in a big money group. Nice when you pop over a hill from a blind tee shot and don't have to drive up to all the balls to finally find yours.. Don't know if it is a good or bad thing but a lot of out tees are right next to the previous greens and if you stick one tight they know exactly who it is..

one was srixon trispeed tour yellow.
the other two were nike one your d which ive found to be pretty durable for premium balls.
after 18, both one tour d balls had plenty of scuffs but trispeed tour yellow was still like new.
performance-wise, i preferred nike one tour d.
just my 2 cents.

Same thing here. I played them when they first came out, but when the first couple dozen got used up, I moved back to white. I actually really like the yellow and loved the durability. I decided I'd play them this year for a whole season and see how it goes. Bought 3 dozen which should last me a while. Who cares what other people say...i'd rather play a yellow ball than some spaceship putter anchored in my chin and I see those all over the place.

I must admit I was one of those guys who swore white was the only color a golf ball should be but after seeing how easy it is to find these and the fact they seem to not scuff as easily I think I just may gaem Z-Star XV yellows.
Funny thing, I thought these would be a hard sell, walked into my local dicks sporting goods and they were out, I asked the guy if they had more and when he came out of the back he had 2 dozen. He says they seel out faster than the others and thye run out of them quite often.

you sir, are racist!
love the yellow XV's, easy to find since my home course likes to grow the rough out like its hosting the Open.

Just another reason I love teeing it up against guys who think like you and then smoking the middle and spinning the ball back on greens! I love hearing the comments about how I get a Pinnacle or Top Flite to stop on the greens, I giggle every time I hear it.

Wanting to try out the Z-star SL in yellow also.
Have been trying out the NXT Tour S in yellow. They feel softer than the Z-stars. Especially off the putter and they also will shred more off the wedges.

Played RX yellows for the first time last week. Our two-some was paired with two strangers in Myrtle Beach. Stood on the first tee for my first shot since October. Could feel the strangers thinking, "Who the heck did we get stuck with." Hit my drive about 20 yards. Hit my second shot another 20 yards. Now I'm thinking I should have at least played a white ball. Managed a bogey on the first. Par on the second. Got my game in order and was the longest off the tee the rest of the day. By the 8th hole, one of the strangers said, "I told my buddy that you were going to be a good golfer. But I must say that on the first tee, I wasn't so sure." The next six rounds, I could feel those same thoughts from strangers on every first tee. Luck for me I was longer and straighter than the rest of the week and quickly put the ball retriever guys in another league.
I look forward to playing yellow the rest of the season. I like being able to know that my ball is the longer one, or the one on the green, before needed to check the brand or marks.
