Callaway ORG 14 X Cart Bag Review

Not one, not two, but three handles in all let you toss this golf bag around carefree. With a total of 10 pockets I don’t think you will have to worry about not fitting in a few extra tees in your bag. If that wasn’t enough one of the pockets is insulated so you can bring along your favorite beverage and keep it cool during your round. With a cart strap tunnel its easy to load this bag into any golf cart. A molded 14-way rubber divider lets you organize all your precious cargo while take the tee.

As far as performance goes with this bag it’s one of our favorites. Stable, well made bag. It’s extra features really make it a good purchase. From the putter tube to the insulated pockets it really has everything a golf bag should have. Great size golf bag and easy to tote around in between rounds. With 10 pockets it sometimes gets a little too full and heavy but we can’t blame that on the bag. Overall, great golf bag for any golfer. We found it at GolfClubs.com for the best price.

Bridgestone B330 Golf Ball Review

The Bridgestone B330 golf ball is one of the most well designed and thought out golf ball I have ever played with. While Bridgestone is a big name to live up to in the golf ball community I think their latest star attraction lives up to all the hype. Dedicated to the innovation of this ball they don’t forget about quality. The Tour B330 line breaks down into a few different subsects: the regular Tour B330 and the B330-RX for golfers with various swing speeds to have a tour ball option.

The most important advancement on the Tour B330 series is the 330 Seamless Cover Technology. designed to reduce drag and hold the ball in the air longer. They updated this formula to make the new models softer and with a slightly different dimple pattern to encourage penetrating ball flight. Of course let’s not forget these are professional grade level golf balls matched for swing speeds over 105 MPH so they are built tough.

Overall these are a great series of golf balls for serious players. We did like the fact that they also come in Optic yellow if you need a little extra help finding your golf ball. The B330’s will definitely give your game the ultimate control from a golf ball. You can find the B330 series and other Bridgestone Golf Balls at GolfClubs.com

Srixon Q-Star Golf Ball Review

With a slogan “question everything” Srixon’s latest golf ball has plenty to live up to. The next stage in their popular STAR (Spin, Trajectory, Acceleration, Responsiveness) line of golf balls continues on from the Z-Star. The new Q-Star golf ball has been upgraded by adding a larger core for better distance and a softer highly resilient thin cover and soft core.

First looking at them they look very similar to the Z-Star. Performing they worked great on drives, flew straight with the occasional slice. As advertised it’s best for golfers who have swing speeds over 80. Definitely added serious distance similar to Bridgestone’s e6. Working with the irons I got great ball flight and it just soared. Working with the short game clubs the ball worked great around the green. Overall it hits straight, long, and with great spin. You can order the Srixon Q-Star Golf Balls at GolfClubs.com

Callaway Diablo HX Golf Ball Review

Callaway’s newest golf ball has all the best of Callaway technology. From their award winning series collection, the Diablo name rests on these golf balls. Constructed with Callaway’s own Hex aerodynamic technology that reduces drag and allows for better ball flight.

The Callaway HX Diablo Golf Ball is 2 piece construction golf ball geared towards a player who wants better performance from tee-to-green. What’s different from this ball than previous Callaway models? The core has a softer center which allows the ball to gain more distance and less spin off the driver and more when used with the shorter irons for better greenside control. The cover was designed as a performance-enhancing system to help player with their short game without comprising spin on drives.

After testing a set of these golf balls out we couldn’t help but conclude that we agree with Callaway. Drives off the tee were getting great distance without serious spin but on short game shots there was still a bit of spin to get the ball right where it needed to be. We would recommend this ball for the golfer who is looking for help with distance and accuracy mainly off the tee.

Titleist Pro V1 vs. Pro V1x

Titleist may have some of the most played golf balls on Tour but what does that mean for the average golfer that isn’t making their living playing golf? Yes, most players have or at one time played with a Titleist golf ball but what makes them so special? Well it all comes down to design, specifically the dimples. That’s what distinguishing the Pro V1 and Pro V1 not only from the competition but each other.

The Pro V1 has a total dimple count of 392 with 5 different types where as the Pro V1x has a total of 332 dimples with 7 different types. Because the Pro V1 golf ball has more dimples it gives it more opportunity to cup wind resistance to increase spin rate, just imagine more dimples more speed. They are both made out of the exact same material so the “feel” is essentially the same on each golf ball. How Titleist explains the difference between the two as the ProV1 has “long distance with consistent ball flight” and the ProV1x has “Low Spin and Increased Velocity for Long, Straight Distance.”

Callaway Tour i(S) Golf Ball Review

Part of their 2011 line up Callaway introduced the Callaway Tour i(S) golf ball along with the Tour iZ, Diablo HT. What sets the i(S) apart from other golf balls is the technology, Callaway uniquely designed this golf ball to perform better. A HEX dimple design to reduce drag. A dual core improves both distance and control. A urethane cover is what gives the ball that softer feel and better spin.

They had great response and spin. Overall we would rate these as a solid performer. Definitely a soft feel at impact but your still able to get that good distance off the tee. Works great around the greens doesn’t scuff up too much. Comes off the putter face quickly. It’s most similar to the ProV1 with a bit less spin off the driver and long irons but still very responsive around the greens.

Bridgestone e-Series Golf Ball Review

Bridgestone e-Series golf balls have been engineered for distance performance customized to golfer’s specific needs. The latest version of the e-Series is based on distance performance and new Dual Dimple Technology. The dimple design allows for better pop off the tee, the inside dimple works to increase power and outer dimple ball roll. Bridgestone known for their golf ball fittings.

  • The e5 is the only 2 piece, urethane construction cover for better distance for moderate swing speeds. Still delivering soft feel and spin around the greens. This ball is great for those short game shots and improvement distance off the tee.
  • The e6 has one of the softest multi-layer golf balls available reducing side spin for increased accuracy. This 3 layer ball has a soft compression core, anti side spin inner layer, and soft surlyn cover. A different look from it’s predecessors quiet noticeable is the dual dimple design. Great alignment arrow as well added to the design to aid for putts and tee shots. Overall the e6 is a great new design and it is a great ball to help position you better on the green. Along with the traditional white, the e-6 also available in optic yellow and orange.
  • The e7 uses it’s multilayer construction for faster speed and longer distances on all shots. Specifically designed for ball flight and what many describe as the “most pure distance of the e-Series golf balls”.

Nike 20Xi Golf Ball Review

Nike has always been a fan of the theatrics and their new golf ball series the 20Xi has the same feel. The latest and greatest from the Nike “Oven” created the most advanced golf ball technology. What we can assume is that this revolutionary new golf ball delivers more distance off the tee and better control on the greens. The construction made the layers simpler and focused on the core. This MOI increase makes for a steeper spin slope. What is the key distinction between this golf ball and others is the ball’s resin core-usually balls are made with a rubber core. With a pricey retail tag these are definitely only golf balls for the serious golfer. However, is it worth it? we like to think so. With overall less spin on all the clubs we tested it with and great launch off different swing speeds. Available at GolfClubs.com it comes in both a 20Xi-S version for spin and control and 20Xi-X for distance and control.

Golf Ball Practice

When you’re not able to make it out to the driving range to hit a bucket of balls but still want the practice invest in some alternative golf balls. A simple wiffle ball will allow you to practice swing and get the motions hammered out even if the distance and flight isn’t in play. The Floppy is a unique practice ball you can use indoors. That’s why this is the perfect ball to use all year round. This ball was made especially as an option when you’re not able to get to the course. This ball has the same feel and feedback of a golf ball but its soft enough to bounce off a window or a wall. It’s perfect for players to practice their short game.  Works best with wedge shots.

Callaway Tour i(z) Golf Ball Review

Callaway Tour i(z) This dual core construction golf ball was created to make a difference between driver spins (low) and wedge spin (high). The firm compression of this ball is great for players who have a fast swing speed. It was designed for tour players but can also have the soft feel average golfers want. In testing we agreed with this assessment as long as you have a fast swing speed this ball will definitely improve your game.
