I came across this YT video with robotic testing of golf balls. The same crew also did a test on Drivers using the robot. It gave interesting results, which removed opinion and brand bias.

My golf ball? 

 

1) Those I find on the course TP5, ProV1 etc and re-use

2) Those I win Srixon Soft Feel usually

3) Those I buy Forte SS2 and  Forte SS3 ( Golf Clearance Outlet  $14.50 per dozen)

I can spell reasonably well, even if in American at times. I cannot type well , so please look for the key I intended to use within one key of the strange one I used.

5 good reasons against the RBZ. $5 more per dozen than the SS2 Forte.

 

The Srixon AD333 got a good report in the ball study I posted above. I think they renamed it the Q Star Tour now, well in the USA at least?

Titleist DT Toursoft. They are superceded now I think, but for around $30 a dozen they're a really good pill.

I think that Srixon is still calling the AD333 Tour now, not Q star tour in OZ at least. $24 dozen at Drummonds

Bridgestone Extra Soft, bought 4 Doz for $75 delivered from GCO many moons ago. Don't golf as much these days, so they are stretching nicely.

Seen Crossfield doing vids on AD333 and QStar Tour as well, would likely give them a crack if I needed some pills tomorrow.

In UK its called AD333 = in USA and Aus = Q star

in UK AD333 is biggest selling ball for Srixon.

 

AD333 tour = Q star tour (urethane cover)

 

GCO have Q star and Q star tour in stock. also sell off occasionally some AD333.

 

Agree with Goldy the DT tour soft titleist is a great ball

 

Dont forget to try Vision Blues from Boz they also perform very well especially in wind where they are the ball of choice.

You can get AD-333 from Drummond.
