  • Conclusion: ...this is the one (so far). I shoot about mid-90's. Straight off the tee. Very nice spin off of the irons & even my hybrids I hit 'em right. Good spin off of the wedges, too. Don't expect to "zip them back" with these, but I found the release/spin just right for me. Last a while & easy to trust swing, since these are easier on the wallet, then some out there.

  • Conclusion: Well technically two but the second one was because my local course doesn't have the decency to rake/blow the leaves off the course and my ball got lost under the fall leaves. I REALLY liked this ball. Very soft, but excellent distance. Very nice short game and excellent durability. I too have gotten to love the Bridgestones, and feel this one is just as worthy of my $25. Being a pretty high HC player, I can't fathom paying double the price for any ball.

  • Conclusion: I just realized I write a lot of reviews on golf balls. I used to stick the higher end balls but with the economy the way it is I keep trying to find good balls for less. This is it. The Burner TP's are incredibly long and feel very soft. They are also somewhat responsive to hitting draws and fades. They spin like and upper end ball and barely scuff at all. My new favorite balls are the Taylormade Burner TP and the Bridgestone E6+. I use both according to the course.

How'd they do that?

  • Conclusion: I'm not paying $40+/doz for balls, so I'm not comparing it to any of those. My ratings are relative to this ~$25-$30/doz category. My main frame of comparison is the HX Hot Bite that I have been happily playing for a while. I usually shoot mid-80's and am a fairly long hitter. I got my first full 18 in with one of these today at a Muni. Here are my observances. The Burner TP is plenty long, although it seems just a hair shorter than the Hot Bite.

A Must TRY kind of ball!!!

  • Conclusion: I think the ball is still new in the market. I just picked it up since I'm trying a bunch of different ones. This ball, although there are marked as a 4 on some categories, it does not make it a lesser ball at all. I'm just adjusting and heightening my own standards. This is a fine ball to play... it has everything a low 80's/high 70's player may be looking for. A great ball for the neighborhood of $30. I think it's a steal.
