Hi, I'm 15 playing off 13 and I play/practice everyday, this is my first review on golf wrx so I apologise if this isn't to the best standard and I will do the full the review as soon as possible, as I can't get out to the course at the moment because my area of the UK I covered in snow so all the courses are closed, I have been to the range everyday since the snow came down wednesday week and that will continue, so I shouldn't be rusty when the review comes, I picked up these at my local range as they were on a Easter weekend sale and my coach is sponsored by Nike golf, so he said that when the course opens the greens will be soaking wet and for now he is even using this ball and having only played one round with it it he really likes It.
Anyway I have been doing some chipping and putting around the house compared to my usual penta tp5 and the results are as followed.
Chipping (vokey sm4 60* with dynamic gold spinner wedge +shaft) -
One rzn - soft feel but clicky loudish sound with a predictable amount of runout.
Penta tp5 - soft feel and quiet sound with low runout a fair bit of grab.      Please note carpet isn't great for telling spin.
Putting (rife Barbados) -
One rzn - soft feel with loudish sound and non urethane distance control
Penta tp5 - soft feel with quiet sound and A1 distance control.
Ok I know that isn't great but I will ASAP when I can get to the course.
Thanks TF1

I played a dozen of the (x). I love the red numbers, but the cover just kills it and the sound is like a wet rock. It feels like a new range ball, not quite beat up because it's still shiny, but still feels "dense". It doesn't have the soft feeling compression of a Pro V1/(x) or the distance and softness of the TP5.

At the moment I'm playing TP3's when I'm not playing TP5's (still winter rules around here) and for the money, the TP3 is the best ball for "me" in this weather. Playing in a warmer climate I'd play TP5's first, ProV1(x) second. Considering the deals out there at GS/GG ($29 for TP5's, $25 for TP3's, $29 for 2012 20XI's, and $29 for Pro V1/(x) Practice) - it makes no damn sense to play the RZN and you'll clearly see why after a round.

I know i havent acutally done the review because it's a dead flight low spin and clicky feel thats all i can say.

This is really disappointing.  I had high hopes for the One RZN line!

I have been testing the X for a few weeks now.  It is a nice ball.  Solid, stable flight, easy to work, long and good around the greens. Almost indistinguishable from the Bridgestone e5.

I will add, they have a "heavy hit" to them.  I don't know how to describe it but I like it.  It is not a hard feel by any means, just a heavy, very solid feel.  

Similar to a Wilson Staff Duo feel with a little more "pop".  Also has a lower trajectory then most balls I have played which is a benefit to me.  I tend to flight the ball high anyway.

I feel like such a chump guys. Maybe this has happened to you before.

I forgot to bring my TP3's out a few days ago and all I had in my bag was a used RZN X. I shot a 40 through 9, and actually triple bogeyed the last hole - to give you an idea of how well I was shooting. A typical score for me is 42, and I was on pace for a 38! I can't hate the ball anymore. I don't like the sound (which as most of us know contributes to "feel") but I can't deny that I hit it well, chipped it well and definitely putted it well for 8 straight holes on a very hard back 9.

I found this ball booms off of drivers and 3 woods and that's part of what saved me on a par 5 and put me on a par 4 green in 1 (first time ever). I won't rave about the balls, but I shouldn't have trashed them as much as I did because the balls perform well for their price point and much like a poster above said, are on par with an E5. I won't keep any new ones in the bag, and will go back to TP5's, but for those that are interested in the RZN, give it a shot - it might work for you.

Anyway, just wanted to update.

I've really wanted to give this ball a shot for my non-urethane ball.  Sounds like I need to check them out.

I just bought the Nike trial pack and will be trying out the One RZNs and the new 20XIs this Thursday.

I've heard different things about the One RZNs. Some people say they are very clicky, loud, and have a heavy feeling. Others say it feels too soft off the tee, as in a deflating feeling of no "boom" at all.

The reason I'm trying these is because I'm looking for more spin around the greens. Not sure if the One RZNs will give me enough but I will find out soon...

I found an RZN X this morning and played it for a few holes. I found it be be quite nice feeling and quite long. I hit my G25 4 wood into a long par 3 into the wind and this ball came down and stuck about 8 feet from the pin. I'm a Bridgestone 330-s guy but I might give the Nike a go for a change up.

I tried the One RZN x, and didn't like the feel off the putter. I'm going to try the regular rzn this week, will report back.

I like the One RZN X. Distance is really good and it is OK off irons and putter, with enough spin for an average golfer's game. It won't replace my primary ball (Srixon Z-Star XV) but it is fine for a backup. It is at least as good, if not better, than other 3-piece ionomer balls in this category and price. I actually prefer the One RZN series to this year's 20Xi series.

UPDATE
I've had a few more weeks to test out the One RZN X and the One RZN and I think these are both very good balls. Both driver and iron distance (and distance control) are very good. Side by side with the SrixXV, the One RZNs fly farther off the driver with a very similar trajectory. Approach shots don't bite like the XV, but they stop good enough for my game. The non-X does provide a bit better greenside control. If I had to pick between the two One's, I'd take the regular (non-X) RZN. These balls are a vibrant white color, and they stay that way. They are also very durable, lasting >18. With the One RZN and the Srixon XV, I am set for the season.
