I used to shoot very spinny pulls to the left. These were the times that i got angry when i spinned the ball. I played every ball there is (Top Flite Titanium comes to mind) and I noticed that I can spin any golf ball. Since then I significantly changed my swing. So now, with the shallower swing I can see the difference in spin between the premium and a cheap golf ball. But guys…I know from my expirience that you can spin any ball. You just need the proper tehnique.

I hate golf

Fred B says:

Worthless test. If it's not a true blind test, the bias factor will always be present.

Sir CiderChops says:

Lovely looking golf course – where is this?

mp says:

As soon as I´m consistantly breaking 100 I´m starting to think about "balls" … but now, sorry, doesn´t make any sense to pay 3.99+ to hit it into the next lake … (usually I´m using lakeballs – to keep the balance … 😉

TheDannyCPFC says:

Insesis though 😳

Roger Tonic says:

Yeah, you could use the inesis 900 tour, for same control as the premium balls, but still at half the price.

bloody hell Hazardous smoke shaft something something head Nicklaus in 1970s MacGregor Persimmon woods 18 majors Hell I know what I will choose

Lloyd Williams says:

Inesis like Vice also makes low priced premium balls.

John Herman says:

I play the srixon z star for the price I believe it’s a good ball. I’m a mid handicapper with a club head speed around a hundred to me it doesn’t pay for me to use prov1 golf balls. Thanks

GOLF - Dream vs Reality says:

Cheap balls are definitely worth using if you are new to golf and loose loads.

LabGorilla says:

I go to the course and buy rescue golf balls. Pay £1 for 3 Srixon soft feel or ad333 balls. I’ve even sometimes managed to get a Srixon z star. Never ever buy brand new.

Macky Mode says:

Maxfli made the best balata cover balls ever, sadly I wasn't good enough of a player to take advantage of it much
I stopped playing golf 20 years ago actually, do they still have balata cover balls?

Mike Bordonaro says:

I miss the Slazenger RAW distance. Loved that ball and can't get it in the states anymore. Used to be $20US for 2 dozen and they flew great.

Walter White says:

I'm about a 10 handicapper with a few games finishing about 78 to 80 at times. I did an experiment with…. melted balls. I bought 50 used balls; most of them dirty. I wanted to clean them so I put them in a pot with very low heat. My goal was warm water for a few minutes. I forgot about them, and came back to a raging boil 30 minutes later. Many destroyed, but most were distorted e.g. dimples raised and some balls nearly ping pong-esque. Funny story I know.

I took them to the course. Most of them flew nearly as straight with about a 10 yard drop in distance. The point being, is that your average joe will NEVER revolutionize their game with an expensive ball. Find a ball whose feel you like and play it. Don't be afraid of used balls. Invest your money into lessons and course time.

Jim Pickard says:

Shout out from me for the Slazenger V300 Soft….. cheap as chips and lovely soft feel .. try some they're great.

johnnyboy2459 says:

Should have tried the Slazenger Soft balls too

Steve Riggs Art and Animation says:

I use the Slazenger V300 Soft ball. £18 for 48 balls. Yes, I would love to play a premium ball and do if I find one on the course. I am used to the ball I play and my game has adjusted to take this into account. I wish you had added the V300 soft into the equation.

Budi Mulyo says:

compare it with the "corona ball" on youtube….. 🙂

Piano Fry says:

I like Pinnacle. I think they are on the line between cheap and good. I think those Nitros you can buy from Walmart are kind of crap but most others are the same.

v4o82 says:

You can tell the Slazenger would be low spin, it's dimples were shallow.

Christopher Izquierdo says:

I play off 8 and can use any ball. Makes no difference to my score. Don’t get bogged down in this shit 👍

Stan yo bro says:

I use whatever my dog brings to me. Just as long as it hasn't been chewed too much.
