Titleist announces new DT TruSoft golf balls and they’re available now

Published

on

Deciding on a golf ball is often one of sacrifices. Sometimes you have to give up distance for a softer feel, or affordability for better performance. With Titleist’s DT TruSoft line of golf balls, the idea is that golfers don’t have to make any sacrifices; soft feel, distance, short-game performance and affordability all come in one package.

When Titleist launched its DT TruSoft golf ball in 2015, it was made to be even softer than the company’s extremely popular DT Solo golf ball — 15 compression points softer, actually — but without sacrificing distance or short game performance. Titleist engineers accomplished this by making a low-compression core with a Pure Ionmer cover, which at the time, were the softest in company history, respectively.

With its new DT TruSoft golf balls, which will also be available in White and Optic Yellow, Titleist is cranking up the distance by increasing the size of its low-compression core — a core it’s calling “TruTouch.” The size increase will help reduce spin off the tee, helping golfers hit the ball farther. The golf balls also have what Titleist calls a new “TruSoft cover”, too, which is engineered for a soft feel and better short game performance in relation to its predecessor.

“We’re meeting more and more golfers who believe you have to sacrifice distance in order to play a softer-feeling ball,” said Michael Mahoney, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball Marketing. “That’s certainly true for many of the lower compression products in the market right now — but not DT TruSoft. When we launched DT TruSoft two years ago, it instantly became the longest ball in the category. Our R&D team has since discovered how to provide even more distance without impacting the remarkably soft feel that golfers tell us they love about this product. New DT TruSoft continues to prove that golfers who prioritize feel don’t have to give up everything else.”

Of course, these golf balls may not produce the length or the short game spin of the company’s premium Pro V1x golf balls, or even its line of NXT Tour golf balls, but each of those options are at a significantly higher price. The DT TruSoft golf balls are priced at $21.99 (MAP), and provide the softest-feeling golf ball in Titleist’s stable. The point is, however, to provide maximum performance in an affordable and soft-feeling golf ball.

The improvements in the new 2017 DT TruSoft golf ball, therefore, help eliminate any sacrifices a golfer needs to make when making a purchase. They begin selling today, September 21 in golf shops around the U.S., and on Titleist’s website.

    Wilson Duo for $20 or Titleist DT for $22-$23? Nearly identical balls, I’ll take the Wilson. Better feel than the last DT True Soft and saves $2.

    Use Supersoft at the moment, but will give this one a try. I liked the old DT solo the few times I played it, but it was a bit too hot around the greens for me.

Published

on

Mizuno’s ST-G220 driver hit the USGA conforming list a couple of months back, and we’ve caught sight of the new addition at this week’s 3M Open.

Along with a deep-looking face, the driver features a moveable weight and an adjustable hosel, while the “high” weight in the rear of the club is interchangeable with other weights/settings.

Here are a few posts from our members, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • wcbjr: “That face is deeeeep!”
  • littletimbo182: “Mizuno is really looking battle with the big dogs! Such a strong lineup driver all the way down to putter.”
  • getitdaily: “Well now, that is quite interesting. 1 weight center back. One weight back toe side. Hmmm.”
  • jokerusn: “That is the perfect shape. Not a thing wrong with that look imo. Good job Mizuno. I know I just got the SiM2 Max, but this is making me rethink my decision.”

Best Bridgestone irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing all things Bridgestone irons. WRXer ‘Texas_Golfer’ is on the hunt for an older Bridgestone set as a backup to his primary set and has reached out for suggestions, with fellow members sharing their picks.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Christen_The_Slop: “I have a set of TS-201. Very underrated CB.”
  • JDubya89: “J40 CB, and it’s not even close, in my opinion.”
  • Mudguard: “I think had J33 Combos, J38s, then J40s. I haven’t used them in at least eight years. But they were the only set I’ve kept.”
  • IL2AZ: “I have both the Tour B X CB and the J15 CB. I am in the minority in that I prefer the Tour B X CB. Little more compact than the J15 CB and feel more solid/dense out of the middle. The J15 CB feels almost too soft at times IMHO.”
