Top Flite XL Distance

Summary:
These balls are sold everywhere and are Top Flite's least expensive balls. They are outstanding. They are very long and very straight. Newer players looking for straight and have a hard time getting their driver on plane should try this ball. I have tried others and find Titliest Pro V's all the time. I have a few dozens of all brands.

The problem with software balls that spin is the spins with contribute to spin that becomes balooning slices. I can keep my driver on plane most of the time. Other balls I like are Precept Laddie X, Top Flite Freak, TF D2 Feel/Straight, and Wilson 50/50 which is a great ball.

The Laddie X was tested as the third longest ball. The Freak is also long but the XL Distance seems to be just as long. My drives are straight and long. Fairway woods and hybrids are fine. The ball is heavy or hard off mid irons. It spins enough off wedges or bump and run is fine. The putting is also fine if your touch is good.

This ball helps me get on par 5s in 3 and par 4's in two which is huge. Better players will not like these balls but taking everything into account - they lower my scores.

Customer Service:
Never used.

Summary:
I got a box of 15 balls for $9.99 (add taxes, 'bout $11). These balls are pretty good and they do seem to help you decrease your hooks/slices. I mean, if it does happen, you really know that your mechanics were WAY OFF on that swing. Anyways, hitting these balls with the irons is not bad (regular feel... have not hit these with the driver yet). Now, when you get to the greens, you gotta be careful, because they don't seem to grab well, if you know what I mean. Of the putter, feel is what you should expect for the price point. Overall, not a bad value ball.
