Summary: I have tried every golf ball out there and have come to the conclusion that the best all round golf ball in the world is the titleist nxt. No disrespect to the tour balls like the pro v, penta etc but they are not as good all round balls. The rationale is as follows. Distance. The nxt is better than the tour balls because it has less spin and is harder than tour balls but is shorter than distance balls though not by too much Spin.
Summary: My game is normally only good on or around the green. That is until I found an NXT while I was golfing. The four teeshots that I hit with this ball were bombs. They were also as straight as I had ever hit them. But once I lost it, I started fading and drawing them and it really ruined my score. They don't take anything away from the short game except for the spin. Don't expect it to check, but you can always compensate for that, right?
Summary: I bought a sleeve at the proshop in order to test them out. I found them affordable, durable, and playable. Titleist has really got a winner with this one. I was playing another brand that was soft and had noticed some loss of length. Because I was being outhit on each tee by my opponent I decided to buy a sleeve of these at the turn. On the first hold I was 20 yards ahead of him and I did not look back!
Summary: I used to be a low 80's player, but left the game for a decade just returning recently. I have been trying various balls to see what fits my current game best. As a part of that I bought a couple of sleeves of NXT balls. I found them to be reasonably straight, but quite a bit shorter than some of the other balls I have been playing (including, inevitably the Pro v). The ball sticks fine on the longer approach shots, but tends to run on chips.
