THE TRUTH: Range Balls VS Regular Golf Balls
Are range balls just as good as regular golf balls? In this video, I aim to uncover the truth and hopefully reveal which golf balls are right for you! (I was shocked at the result…)

      Callaway Super Soft, used from 2018. Buy a dozen for 179 SEK, cirka 14 GBP.

      I notice a difference in feel and sound when I play a cheap ball. Go to is a Tp5x (Pix) or a vice (pro plus?). Something like that….

    most of the balls distance is almost the same... to me it is just when doing the pitching shot that some of them easier to bite. And the balls feels different ... some are nice and soft for putting but some are HARD.... I basically use whatever on sale (less than $1 ) like NITRO.... but keep some pro V1 that I find in the rough for par 3 (easier to control)

    I play Pro V1's in the summer and TP5's in the winter (Southern California summers and winters, 100 degs vrs 40s). Not sure if its just my imagination but the PV1 feels hard in cold weather and TP's feel soft.

    I play mostly TP5, but I buy used balls 4A quality for half the price and I don't feel for one second it is negatively impacting my score. When I miss, no golf ball on the planet was going to change the outcome.

  • Thomas Leith

    I'm a rank beginner. The pro I started with told me to buy the cheapest "soft" balls the store has. Right now I have MaxFli SoftFli. The balls I practice with in the back yard are all found balls. Maybe I'll keep an eye out for "soft" ones when I'm searching the rough, and start playing those. That'd be cheaper still.

    They all make the same splash when they hit the water...I never pay more than 50c a ball (get them second hand). I'm not at a level where the ball makes a difference to my game.

    My dad works at a course in his retirement. Handed me a grocery bag full of Pro V's he salvaged from the course. He likes to troll the customers and tells them to write down what hole they lost their new Pro Vs on so he can go collect them for himself.

    Srixon AD333 are the best for value in my honest opinion. 2 piece construction, great distance and a respectable feel around the greens (for the price). A “super sleeve” aka 2 dozen will set you back £29.99. Can’t go wrong.

    I used to use callaway chrome soft. Then I changed to magna oversize ball. Which a mate was using. He gave me one to try wow, my iron play improved no end. OK I lost on average about 10 yds with the driver, but my accuracy improved tremendously. My iro play also I was an 18 handicap, now I'm 10. In my opinion great value for money. High handicapper's might benefit from them 👍

    I did a lot of ball testing this past winter on trackman and I also get better results from the higher compression balls. The previous model Z Star XV is a good option at $24.95 a dozen. The pro v1x is the best ball for me, and I play them on nicer courses, but the XV is a solid choice at half the price for the less well kempt courses, while not giving up much driver distance.

    I use Maxfli Tour balls. Consistent and you get them for $25 a box on sale all the time. I just stock up when I see the sale. Testing had a great area compared with pro v1 balls. I think the side to side dispersion was the smallest and it was within 2 yards of distance for less than half the price.

    Spectacular shots!! But, how many were do overs??

  • LumberJacques

    Yo, Love the content and all. Peter is great, no news to anyone really. I just came here to ask; does the SiM2 really sound like that or is it just the audio recording that misrepresents it? I would guess that all the audio is coming through the lav-mic so maybe that might account for it? Was just so taken by surprise by the sound of the driver.

  • Brett McNamara

    I buy the Noodle (long and soft). But will gladly play with anything I find on the course. I find a ton of PV1s. Why? Because people that have no business playing with them... Lose them all the time!

    For the past ten years, I've played only found balls. And far and away the most lost ball in golf is the Pro V1 / V1x.

    • Mark Swan
      Mark Swan

      I have ~ 5 dozen Pro V1/Pro V1X in my garage that I found on the course the past 10 months or so. At $48.00/dozen, you’d think people would look a little harder for them🙄.

  • dathyr1

    It just goes to show you that you dont really need to play with 40 dollar golf balls to shoot good golf. It is nothing more than an ego thing in your mind that you have to play with a brand new ball all the time. i play with all kinds of balls I find from people losing them on the golf course and shoot around the same normal scores(around 80 for 18 holes) and havent bought golf balls for quite a while. thanks for the video.

  • Michael Boen

    His range ball had a really soft cover? That's nice. The only soft cover range balls I've seen are name brand practice balls. He need to go to a near by stand alone driving ranges and get one if their balls. The range I go to uses "Strata-Range" balls. The difference could be even more because they don't spin at all compared to a premium ball

      @British James And you must be British...British James. In is common to "break one's balls" when in the same field. But thank you for coming to his rescue, I'm sure that makes him feel all warm and fuzzy. Don't be sad that the US is better than you at everything. Have your tea and fuck off to bed.

    I always go with the rule of range ball equals normal distance - 10% and this just about checks out perfectly. Also, I use k-sigs, zstar xv, or Snell MTB X

    Some range balls are "flighted" a percentage of a normal range. Restricted flight balls are not marked, the flighting on the ball can be up to 75% of a normal ball depending on the range. My range does not use "flighted" balls, bur many shorter ranges do, to stop hackers smoking it over the back netting. Costco, Kirkland balls are pro v-1 "knockoffs" for less than half the price. I don't wince when I smash one into the woods.

    Love this discussion! Balls are too pricey but as The Finch can attest, a lot of direct to consumer balls are great quality. TXG does some great numbers on range v your go to for fittings and the numbers don't lie

  • boaz63

    Why does this need to take 22 min?

  • ShamanK1977

    I was at a fitting with a full launch monitor set up. THe difference between Pro V1's and the range balls was inane. I was testing a Titleist MB 2 iron. 195 yards on average with a range ball... 255 yard average with the ProV1's on similar strikes and swing speeds.
