Summary: Strong but spendy performance for better players who want a ball that really bites With golf balls, often you trade performance and feel for distance and durability. Nobody likes compromise. If Nike set out to make one ball that does it all, they came close with the 2008 Nike ONE Platinum. Decent durability combine with good length, outstanding spin and a soft feel for a great all-around premium performance ball for the better player.
Summary: Before i started to use Nike One balls, i'd use the cheap Maxfli's and some Bridgestones (Very good golf balls). Then one of my friends told me to try out the nike one platinums and Nike one blacks, and i didnt want to spend 30.00 0n a ball i wouldnt like, so i bought a dozen of refurbished nike one blacks and platinums for 10.00 at target. I was extremely surprised with the spin i get on the nike one platinums.
Summary: Was always very skeptical of Nike golf balls in the past. I've been using the Pro V1 but never seemed to get the results on the green I wanted. Couple of days ago while finishing up a round, I had a ball hit into me from another fairway. The player playing in a high school tourney apologized and said to keep the ball. I looked at it and saw it was a Nike One Platinum. I decided to try it out to finish the last hole.
Excerpt: These are the first premium golf balls I've ever considered spending money on and I've dropped 3 off of my handicap in the last 2 months. Other than my golf ball, nothing's changed. Long and straight off the tee and throw it up to the hole with any mid/short iron. I'd probably encourage anyone playing off 18 or less to give it a go.
