Srixon Trispeed At Top Speed

June 1st, 2008 rgordon83 Posted in Golf Ball Reviews No Comments »

If you ever needed an excuse to get your swing speed tested, the Srixon Trispeed golf ball may just give you that excuse. This is because the Trispeed was designed for golfers with a swing speed of 70 miles per hour or more with a core design that cranks out the initial velocity and banks an incredible launch angle.

The Srixon Trispeed's multilayer makeup includes Srixon’s own soft Energetic Gradient Growth core that provides extremely effient energy transfer, a mid-layer isonomer known as the Rabalon HR for blazing speed, and a Rabalon blend for the cover that boosts velocity and speed.

The Srixon Trispeed golf ball also offers high trajectory aerodynamics that make will get you airborne in no time.

Notice a pattern here? The Srixon Trispeed golf ball was built for speed without sacrificing the softness needed at impact and at the green. Just that simple. Not to mention, the Srixon Trispeed has a great price for the improvement you get in your game. The price point compares well with the Callaway HX-Hot and the Titliest NXT.

Srixon has been driving the standard in golf balls higher and higher. The speed demon Srixon Trispeed continues that acceleration.

Pinnacle Platinum Feel Is High Performance

May 30th, 2008 rgordon83 Posted in Golf Ball Reviews No Comments »

High performance and a soft feel from a cheap golf ball? If you said it is not possible, you really need to give the Pinnacle Platinum Feel golf ball a chance.

The Pinnacle brand has long been considered a "rock" by many serious golfers, but the Pinnacle Platinum Feel, along with some other golf balls Pinnacle has released, is working on changing that reputation.

And the Pinnacle Platinum Feel succeeds in a big way. In fact, Pinnacle's motto for its new generation of golf balls is "Distance Doesn't Have to be Hard."

So what do you get with the Pinnacle Platinum Feel? Thin surlyn covers for the soft feel and good control, alignment guides for more accurate putting, high coverage 332 "Icosahedral" dimple design for consistent flight and a tough, long-wearing ball.

The Pinnacle Platinum Feel is long compared to other golf balls in its league and even fairs well when put up against the big players like the Srixon Z-URS and the Titleist Pro V1x. The Pinnacle Platinum Feel stops tight after the bounce and can perform with very little backspin.

If you are a better than average player (and even if you're not) you'll enjoy the economy of the Pinnacle Platinum Feel and still get a soft touch in the bargain.

May 29th, 2008 rgordon83 Posted in Golf Ball Reviews 1 Comment »

In all honesty, you may not rush out to grab a Noodle Noodle+ because of the goofy name, but if you are a golfer who puts distance before vanity the Noodle Noodle+ should be at the top of your bag.

As the company (a division of TaylorMade) says, "No false promises. Just results." And the results of the Golf Magazine ball distance tests logs the Noodle Noodle+ just behind the TaylorMade TP Black at 259 yards (compared to the Black's 259.1). If you long for distance, the Noodle Noodle+ delivers.

Callaway Tour i Ups the Game

May 28th, 2008 rgordon83 Posted in Golf Ball Reviews No Comments »

The highly advanced Callaway Tour i golf ball has convinced roughly 30 pro players to switch out their old golf balls - and if it is good enough for them, it may just be good enough for you.

Hit the Callaway Tour i golf ball with a driver and you'll be rewarded with less spin and increased distance and accuracy than a lot of comparable balls offer. This is achieved by Callaway's tungsten-infused outer core that enables weight to move out from the center of the ball, something Callaway has designed using their innovative 4-piece inertia technology And if you are looking for the real tour feel the Callaway Tour i's softer inner core will give you that and then some.

TaylorMade TP Black Is Different

May 26th, 2008 Discount Golf Balls Posted in Golf Ball Reviews No Comments »

Some golfers mistakenly think that there's no difference between the TaylorMade TP Black golf ball and the TP Red other than the choice of color, but they couldn't be more wrong.

It's true that both balls sport TaylorMade's distinctive logo, the same three piece solid core, identical ionomer mantle layers and cover materials (and the same price point), but the TaylorMade TP Black is designed to deliver a higher launch angle and lower spin than the TP Red. The TP Black's mantle is a bit thicker, creating a slightly harder ball that gives you greater carry distance. The core of the TaylorMade TP Black is also slightly smaller, bringing back some of the softness lost by the thicker mantle.

TopFlite D2 Feel Golf Balls Rock

May 24th, 2008 Discount Golf Balls Posted in Golf Ball Reviews No Comments »

Let me start off by saying that I know most serious golfers are going to cringe when they see the name "TopFlite" in a golf ball review. Well, they might want to change that attitude because the TopFlite D2 Feel is revolutionary for a discount golf ball.

Phrases like "longer ball flight", "tight control", "improved aerodynamics" and especially "soft feel" aren't normally used to describe the exceptionally economical TopFlite series of golf balls. And for good reason - they didn't get the nicknames "RockFlite" and "TopRock" for providing a good, soft touch on the drive or at the green. The Top Flite D2 Feel changes all that.
