    Are usually play whatever I spend tour quality ball I can find that's on sale.

    My last experiment was with the Maxfli U/4X. Got it as a buy one get one at Dick's for $35, had a $10 off coupon, so pay $25 for two dozen tour quality balls. And actually they're really pretty good

    Absolutely love it. It can be very long sometimes, I feel no need to have a 13-15* 3 wood. It isn't an absolute bomber like the Adams XTD that Rock hit 300 yards on the fly, but I have hit it off the deck the same distance as guys in league hit their drivers. Its actually one of my favorite clubs that I've ever had.

    Dayum, Rock must have got lessons from wrx, lol.

    I'm hitting the 4 wood just as far as my 15* 910...it's not as long as my 13.5 but way more accurate. I'm like you, I don't see the need of carrying a 3 wood.

    I found a TM Penta TP3 on the course about 3 years ago and liked it. When TM discontinued them all the online stores were blowing them out for $18 or so a doz. I bought like 10 Doz. of them so I'm stocked with balls for a while.

    3 piece, urethane cover. They go for me off the tee and spin great around the greens.

    Hey! Good to see you around again!

    I never understood the Penta TP 3, doesn't penta itself stand for five?

    I've been lurking a bit. Work has been insanely busy but going to make time to play golf and fish.

    Yeah, TP3 & 3 layers makes little to no sense. I guess that's why they discontinued them!

    They are however a really nice 3 piece ball that got lots of good reviews. Just not at $40/doz.

    I found that to be true of most tour quality balls that I've tried. Not bad, but not $40-$50 per dozen good either

    I'll play proV's, but only when I find them in the bushes lol.
    Have been a Wilson Duo fan for a good 6 months now. Used to play e6's, am prone to chucking one on the tee very now and then but always revert back to the Duo for some reason.

    I bought a gross of Top Flite Tours (the last version of a Strata around the time of the Callaway buyout) on closeout years ago for just under $10 a dozen. Still got around 10 dozen or so left. I am good for a while. :D (especially since I just Top Golf for now, they provide the balls)

    I really like the Srixon Z Star. Nice off the tee and a ton of green side spin. Bought a couple dozen after finding one on the course and playing the rest of the round with it. Great golf ball!!!

    My balls have been in someone else's hands, before they are in mine. As I've said before, we find literally dozens of lost balls on the course. Having the first tee time, we find what was lost the day before.

    My cart buddy gets all the Callaway balls and I get all the Titleist balls. I still like the ProV, but that does not stop me from experimenting with a number of found gems. I've enjoyed playing a number of the E6 balls lately. Also, we have named the MOJO the 'most lost' ball on our course. Used to be Top Flite. Now, we find lots and lots of MOJOs hiding in the leaves. After simply tossing them in our buckets, I played a couple. Have shot some nice scores with the crappy MOJO balls.

    Each year, our course burns off all the native grass areas. Once burned, it's amazing to see all the "toasted marshmellows" laying there that nobody found... and just where some of those are.

    I'm positive I've put my balls where no balls had gone before.

    Haha, I don't know the exact distance but on a par 5 we played he had something around 260 left to come home in two. First time he had taken a swing with it and flies the green hitting tree behind the green on the fly, and its a good thing he did or the ball would've been in the clubhouse snack bar.
