proV1's are my favourite, a great golfing ball for all round gold, a little expensive but they are the best golf ball in my opinion. Alot of my friends use maxfli dahabi.

i dont really have a favourite, i just go with the cheapest.
Me too! But I'm new....is there really a difference? I have Titleists, but they were a Christmas gift. The pro shop at the course where I take my lessons has all different kinds, but I've always purchased the cheap ones. In fact, I purchased used ones toward the end of the season that were fished out of the ponds. Is that bad? :)

I go with whatever is the cheapest too. Mostly those lost golf balls the kids find and try to make a quick dollar off of. Who knows they are probably finding all my sliced balls that I never wanted to chase.

Golf Ball Brand

What is ever on the shelf, or the cheapest? The color don't matter. They all hit the same to me. It's the part on finding them after you hit them.

I think the importance of balls is a bit overrated. They won't back a bad putt go in, or a weak drive go further. It all comes down to how good you are, so getting the cheapest is the way I go

I've been using the BlackMAX almost religiously. I'm able to afford them (great deals off of eBay). I posted a review of them in the equipment reviews under golf balls.

I played PRO V's most of the summer. Or NXT Tours, which I had some I had bought late last year.
Now that the tempature is starting to drop I will be playing Wilson 50's

How does the temp effect the balls why do you change from one season to the next?

I use either Titleist ProV1X or Bridgestone B-330 S when I'm playing for scores or match play against firends. For practice rounds I use NXT Extremes, Bridgestone E6's, Nike Ignites and Callaway Warbirds. I've previously used Nike ONe-Black but I felt they didn't give me the greenside playabillity (spin) that the Titleist or Bridgestones....could be all in my head though.

Only been playing for a few months and tbh started off with some cheapie Dunlops. Didn't really matter as they mostly went in the trees :)

I'm a little better now and can definately say changing to some Calloway balls has made a big difference. They just seem to go further than when I get a Dunlop out the bag....

What makes a good ball?

Surtees, I think the reason Golf Bum changes his balls is because high distance balls with a 90 compression, get like brick when the temperatures drop. He's probably going down to an 80 or 70 compression ball so he can play well into November or December, he's a Canuck, he straps on his motorized snow shoes and plays till he cant find his balls in the snow drifts :laugh: .

As the temperature drops higher compression balls feel harder coming off the club face. I used to play Dunlop Loco's when it was cold, they were great. I still use them, but I have tried the Wilson 50 which is a 50 compression ball. It is BUTTER when it is cold. I am talking about temperatures anywhere from 0-10 Celsius. Like this morning when I teed off shortly after 8 AM the temperature was 3 C. The Wilson 50 felt fine coming off the club face of the driver, irons and putter.

Cold weather really has a big effect on the distance the ball flies. When you play in cold air the ball just does not fly as far. Yardages decrease with all clubs, so it is important to recognize that and pull the right club. If I normally hit a 7 iron I usually drop down to a 6 iron when it is cold.

No, I do not play golf in the snow. And no, there is no snow here in Ontario Canada yet ;) But the forecast is calling for some this week. Hopefully this cold spell passes and the weekend warms up so I can get in another round or two then.

GB Have you ever used the Wilson 50 in warm weather, and if so how is a ball with that low compression for distance? Hows much yardage does it lose when its cold? You think you got a 95+ swing speed, how would it play for a high 80's? The club here (N.B.) has started scrambles every weekend, and am looking for a good cold weather ball, had been using the Noodle Soft, but its supposedly a distance ball. Any suggestions?

Dunlops are a decent ball actually. A really decent club as well.:)
