I have used the tour performance more over the last week....

It feels amazing off the putter, but I don't think it has the level of green side spin as the pro v1x I usually use, and the jury is our re distance off the tee.

The thing I found a little strange was some inconsistencies in my wedge distances..... not sure if it's the soft compression, or me hitting them different.

I typically hit my sand wedge about 80-85 metres, but have flown a few greens from this distance, with normal strikes.....

My level of expertise with the wedges is way below that or your own and ProV's are not for me.  I have difficulty getting most balls to react around the green BUT... If I can get the PT Red and to a lesser extent the blue to check and stick, I believe you will get the spin of a Pro V out of them.   What have you got to lose?? :D

Scratch received an express courier satchel today via Couriers Pls (Can't be cheap sending sample stuff out like this but hey)

 

The two styles of balls received are the :

  • Tour Performance S x Qty 2
  • Apex 6 x Qty 2

Initial thoughts, when I place both balls in my hand they feel very soft and sticky  :P

 

Will put them through their paces on the weekend.

 

They only sent me two balls.  How come you got four?

 

Tour Performance S.  Looks like a 3-piece.

Hi Dave, its not sticky like the ProV1 cover but they are good for distance control and will spin enough to

work with shots that require more grip for saves when short sided,,,,,IMHO that is,,,, and the more you

play my type of designs the more you can get out of the balls ,,,, unfortunately a new ball type wont get

to many holes to prove itself ,,,,,Cheers, Boz

Check his handicap against yours.  Maybe he has more to offer in a review type sense..  Just sayin

I must admit, i like the sticky cover........ even though i am sure its just a phycological thing, not performance related.

Put it in play today and hit the abort button after 7 holes, just couldnt hit a decent shot off the tee with it 6 out of 6 fairways missed and left it short on a par 3, scored realy poorly with it then changed back to a Q Star and felt much better, will give it another chance thursday at a more open and forgiving course as im fairly certain the indian was missing more then a case of  having crooked arrows

Package arrived today containing 2 Forte Tour Performance S, will give them a go tomorrow and see you they stack up, have been playing with srixon Q stars of late so thats my reference point.

 

Hi Dizzy, the ball they should have sent you is the SS3 Speed,,, that might have been interesting,,, I would write to them

to tell them you like Q-Stars because they are straighter for you than the urethane balls and would like a ball like that??

There is sticky as in the Foremost / Nassau type balls where they feel sticky in your hand and tend to get stained quickly

after that lacquer finish wears off and the Titleist that feels slick to touch when new but after 9/12 holes starts to feel  less

so,,and also will start to stain more easily ,,, I am aimed more at the Titleist feel when new.
