I am a pretty good ballstriker and I am a 20 handicap. I currently use the srixon soft feel and its pretty good. I hit it low and would like slightly more spin. I hit it straight and hit it about 220 off the tee. Do you have any suggestions for golfballs that will fit my game.

On board radar and floats:) sounds like the one you have is a good one. I think a soft ball would spin better than a harder tour ball.

Bridgestone E5's would give you what you are looking for.  They are 2 piece distance balls but they have a urethane cover.  The E5's spin almost as much as a tour level ball and produce a higher ball flight.  I play these often and they are about $25 per dozen.

Sounds like the Bridgestone E5 was made for you.  Need more spin? Check.  Need a higher flight? Check.  Already keep it in the fairway? Check.  You drive it 220 consistently in the fairway and are still a 20 handicap? Your short game must suck.  So you need more control around the greens? Check.

E5 it is.

Yea I just bought a used box of e5s, and I can't decide between the e5 and the srixon. I think I prefer the feel of the srixon and they seem to perform the same. Actually my short game is pretty good. I just have a lot of mental errors as I always tend to go for it even if I know I can't do It and I will put by a tree or in pond.

Any golf ball that's got the feel you want and is easily affordable to your pocket. There are advantages to some balls for some players but that is always dependent upon your ability to take advantage of that balls characteristics.

Of course, there is the feel good factor and that can make your round better.  If it makes you feel good, spend the money and use it.

I used to play the gamer not sure why I stopped. I really did like it. Also I think I had my best round with that ball.

+1. Get over the urethane, tour premium, and all the other ball marketing and buy some duo's. Best $19.99 you will spend, and you won't be a 20 for long!

Try using the ball fitter tool on the Srixon wen site. Very helpful.
