    What's every one's thoughts on low spinning premium balls ?

    I tried the avx during the season and didn't like it and today I tried, for the first time, a rival low spinning premium ball, man it was massively long, like easily a club shorter approach than my normal ProV but I'm not sure about them in mid season, where at this time of year you can get away with them.

  2. Stuart,
    I suppose it complements a low-spinning driver to use a low spin ball to max out distance.
    This would, theoretically, lead to using a shorter iron into greens.
    If, as you say, the low spin ball goes further, an even shorter iron might be required.

    What do you plan to do?
    Are you going to cary on the experiment through til spring... or even further?
    Would be very interested to hear what happens.

    Not sure using low spin driver with low spin will work for everyone. Tests prove that once the spin drops the ball loses lift and falls which means you loses distance. The TM SLDR was the prime example when there were very few low spin balls....

    I’m not sure that it would be an option for me as I need a bit of spin to help me! Hopefully though, I’ll be able to find out for sure in the ball fitting at Woburn soon...

    Sure we can all do with more length (ooh err missus) but in general terms, length off the tee has never been an issue for me, but I'm just not sure about low spinning balls. May be I was just flushing things better today and on another day I may not have noticed any difference.

    I also hope to find out what suits me best with a ball fitting, but I don't believe I'm an overly high spinning player that needs to reduce spin, we'll see.....hopefully.

    I experimented with the AVX for a while back in August / September. I hit a high ball and liked the idea of a lower flight, it did seem longer, I liked it around the greens and it felt good off the putter. I don't tend to spin the ball back loads (back spin wise) but I was able to get it to stop / back up a little, possibly not as quickly / easily as my usual Pro V. Generally I was happy with it so I bought another doz a day before I went to the TT Invitational but then had a ball fitting on the trackman with the guy who fits the pro's for balls and he said the Pro V was the ball for my game. We hit some 40 / 50 yard shots, ideal spin should be (if I remember this correctly) 5500, I was only getting 2500 / 3000 with the AVX and 5000ish with the pro v. So now im back to the Pro V's which is good as I still have 4 doz in the house!

    Too much hype on low spinning clubs and balls.
    Spin is actually your friend sometimes as it needs spin to keep the ball in the air. No spin and it’ll drop from the sky !
    It really is on the individual as to how they hit it and cause the said spin.
