Srixon Trispeed Golf Ball Review
Most of us tend to stick with a conventional three-piece golf ball; for the most part, they are affordable and do what we need them to do. The Srixon Trispeed ball has created quite a stir as of late in the world of three piece construction. Retailed for just under $14.99, the Trispeed has a lot to offer for the price. Take a look at what makes this ball so good for the price.
The balls target user is for any avid golfer, within nearly every skill level, including armatures with low handicaps. The makeup of the ball uses a softer middle layer and incredibly resilient patented Energetic Gradient Growth Core that offers a higher launch angle with reduced spin, providing maximum distance. The Srixon is marketed to those heavy hitters for a reason!
Middle Layer Trispeed Ball
The middle layer of the Trispeed is made up from Rabalon blended Ionomer material. This layer is responsible for the overall control of the ball. It’s specifically designed to complement the balls excellent distance potential, without losing control of your shot.
This layer is especially useful to those golfers who consistently hit lower shots with a high rate of spin, allowing it still to create the distance necessary, even in windy, less desirable conditions.
Core Of Srixon Trispeed
The core is the engine that drives every ball, and the Srixon offers a killer one and is certainly a long balls hitters dream. This low compression core is larger than most cores on the market at 38mm, and offers incredible acceleration right off the tee, allowing it to drive through even the worst of playing conditions.
The fact that the Srixon offers such a responsive core, yet still took the time to address feel and control is rather unusual in the golf ball world. More often than not, us golfers are forced to sacrifice feel and spin to get the maximum distance from our balls.
Srixon Trispeed Outer Shell
The outer shell is comprised of 324 dimples which improve the aerodynamics and spin of the ball. The rather soft yet durable outer shell offers great feel and touches for the finesse player and with the combined efforts of the two superior inner layers, adds distance for those who would like to add more distance to their shots.
The ideal golfer who should certainly give this ball a try would be one with the following swing characteristics.
- Slow to medium swing speed
- Decent mechanics no matter the handicap
- Could benefit from more distance, not just off the tee
- Prefers to feel and touch over power
The Srixon Trispeed Balls are also offered in a Tour Ball. The Trispeed Tour goes one step further than-than the Trispeed, providing the even greater feel and control, all the while keeping its primary focus on distance well intact. The series is also offered in a Yellow ball for those of you who prefer than style.
Sioux is so confident that you will like their new Trispeed series, they invite you to compare their ball to any one of the following competing golf balls.
- Titleist NXT Extreme
- Nike Juice
- Callaway HX Hot Plus
- Bridgestone EX 6 and 7 Series
- TaylorMade Burner
To me, it says allot about the confidence a company has in its product when they are point blank asking you to compare their product, to not one, but several well-respected brands. This ball is defiantly worth trying out and seeing for yourself if the ball delivers on its promises!
Callaway HX Diablo Tour Golf Ball Review
Callaway is renowned for their technological advances and attention to detail in golf ball technology. Being at the cutting edge of innovation, Callaway has revolutionized the games with their superior knowledge and understanding of golf.
The advanced technology now available has enabled them to produce just about a perfect golf ball there is. It won’t automatically make you a better golfer, but you will find the Callaway HX Diablo Tour Golf Ball more precision-driven than any other golf ball on the market.
Key Features of the HX Diablo Tour Ball
The main features of the Callaway HX Diablo Tour Golf Ball are:
- Central power reaction core
- Soft ionomer outer cover
- HEX Aerodynamics technology
What Can Be Improved By Callaway Golf
Well, apart from the golf balls only being available in one color, and some people (believe it or not) like the day-glow yellow or green, there is the very little improvement that can be considered for the Callaway HX Diablo Tour Golf Balls.
This has got to be the most advanced construction and design for a golf ball available on the market today.
The Bottom Line With The HX Diablo Tour Golf Ball
The Callaway HX Diablo Tour Golf Ball is a great golf ball that has been designed with the pro golfer in mind. The soft inner core makes the golf ball sail away from the tee with a precision that is truly breathtaking. The power reaction core achieves this increase in speed. The golf ball has a soft inner that increases in firmness towards its outer edge.
Every golfer is looking for anything that will improve their game, and the golf ball is an important part of that process. If you are just starting out in golf, you may think that golf balls are all alike. This could not further form the truth. In all honesty, a high caliber golf ball like the Callaway HX Diablo Tour Golf Ball will not put you into the Masters league, but you will certainly benefit from its unique technology.
The Callaway HX Diablo Tour Golf Balls are specifically designed to increase driving length and speed from the tee without the huge spin that can send it careering out of control. This gives greater accuracy over distance. Not only that, the special core enables a great spin when used with irons or drivers. The core gives the ball a greater control over shorter shots.
As you will have noticed, golf balls have dimples on the outside. This is not for aesthetic appearance; the dimples reduce drag in speed and enable a ball to fly better and more accurately. The space between the dimples could be considered dead space, and so Callaway has devised and used a revolutionary technique called HEX Aerodynamics in the Callaway HX Diablo Tour Golf Balls. This design replaces the dimples in the golf ball to produce surface coverage of 100%. The honeycomb design reduces the conventional dead space that exists between ordinary dimples in golf balls to remove that inefficiency thus making the Callaway HX Diablo Tour Golf Balls more aerodynamic in all weather conditions.
As you would expect Callaway spend all of their time devising and developing techniques to improve the golfing game. This flair and passion are reflected in the simplistic but revolutionary equipment and accessories they produce. Their extensive testing procedure ensures that the latest technology is employed to its fullest use before release. This ensures that all new products are at the top of their range regarding optimum performance, technology, and construction.
Bridgestone xFIXx Golf Ball Review
Callaway is renowned for their technological advances and attention to detail in golf ball technology. Being at the cutting edge of innovation, Callaway has revolutionized the games with their superior knowledge and understanding of golf.
The designer of the Bridgestone xFIXx ball most likely had recreational golfers in mind. One golfer’s interpretation was that the ball is perfect for someone who plays now and then and is approximately around a handicap of 18.
So it may not be the best ball for a low handicap golfer that gets out on the course 100+ times every year. Then again, just maybe it is. Read on to find out why.
Key Features of the Bridgestone xFIXx Ball
The core of this ball is one of the low compression gradational types. What that means is that the core differs in density from center to edge. Because of the low compression, it assists golfers that have slower swing speeds and lower distance because the ball compresses easier than others. This core additionally helps produce less side spin but a higher launch angle, and that is good news in the category of accuracy.
Go ahead; judge a ball by its cover. This ball exclusively utilizes a newly made Monomer for its cover. The cover is softer than your average ball which helps a player increase in control and the desired spin at the same time, in a shorter game. The cover differs from your average ball additionally in that it has fewer dimples on its outer surface. 330 to be exact. Some golf balls even have a detectable seam. Bridgestone utilizes seamless technology for their golf balls. We’re talking accuracy here; no one wants a seam in the way of an accurately hit ball?
What’s Good About This Bridgestone Golf Ball
Some reviewers of this ball said that, after using it, they realize how under rated it is. They walked in with relatively low expectations thinking that it would be a hacker’s ball with low performance. The reviewers, by the end of a round of golf, were exceedingly pleased and their opinions had done a full 360-degree turnabout.
They explained that the ball felt fantastic on full compression shots and full swings. Some of the golfers with lower swing speeds felt that the fact that even they could compress the ball adequately with a driver; but that the bonus was that they also had great distance and control when using their irons.
Holding it in their hand, they noticed that it had a different feel than other golf balls considered high performance. They said that it felt a little ‘harder,’ despite its softer cover. But when it all came down to it, they were ecstatic about the great control and spin they were able to achieve on short iron shots and wedge shots. One golfer was able to stop the ball extremely well inside of 150 yards.
What Golfers Didn’t Like About xFIXx
The only problem anyone ran into was that they noticed some little plastic shavings on the cover after using square grooved clubs. By picking up the ball before that all-important putt and brushing the shreds off of the ball cover, they assured themselves of a true roll that would not be affected by the rough surface with the shavings sticking up. These golfers agree, however, that it was a small price to pay for the control and accuracy that they experienced.
In A Nutshell – The Bridgestone xFIXx
For the cost of approximately $, the Bridgestone xFIXx is a decent ball. Whether you’re an average golfer or one who utilizes higher handicaps, this golf ball promises to deliver good performance and can quite possibly be a definite factor in your ability to achieve lower scores. Even golfers who consider themselves 10 handicaps or lower will enjoy this ball.
TaylorMade Penta TP Tour Golf Ball Review
So there is a lot of buzz around the courses about the new TaylorMade Penta TP golf ball, so I thought I’d take a peek and see what this thing is all about. Does it go without saying that since it is a 5 layer ball; it’s not going to be on the inexpensive side, but what great performing ball is?
Each layer of a multi-level ball, as most of you know, is designed to address and enhance specific characteristics of a golf shot. Spin, feel, and distance is the most common. What we find in a lot of 4 and 5 layer balls, however, is that although they seem to excel in some areas, they tend to lack in others, this is perhaps why most golfers use a good two or three layer ball.
TaylorMade Penta TP Tour Golf Ball, The Penta TP, has taken the flaws most commonly seen in these balls and addressed each one individually and seems to have nearly perfected every one of the 5 layers that make up the Penta. Let’s take a closer look as to why this ball may finally solve the riddles lots of higher end balls have failed to do.
Outer Shell Of Penta TP Tour Ball
We all love a ball with a soft feel that can still deliver higher spin rates while still maintaining a lower launch angle. There are a handful of balls out there that accomplish this rather well. However these balls often lack the punch, so we are left sacrificing a little distance.
The Penta’s urethane cover offers all the features you would expect in a tour level ball, with the rare advantage of not having to sacrifice distance and accuracy.
Outer Mantle Of TaylorMade Penta
The outer mantle is the balls spin layer. This layer is optimized for your short iron and rescue club game. More often than not, a ball that promotes higher speed lacks the control and distance factors; Penta has this covered as well.
Not only can you generate the spin needed for the shot you need to make, but you can also count on the Penta to achieve the distance necessary to get you where you need to be. The ball still maintains that low launch level, while giving you plenty of spin on the ball, a huge advantage rarely seen in any golf ball.
Middle Mantle Of Penta Golf Ball
The middle mantel is made from Penta’s new proprietary material, is the main function is to allow the other players to do their jobs, without sacrificing control. Besides distance, control is perhaps the most sought after characteristic we all want from our golf balls, especially when we are paying north of 40 dollars a dozen.
Designed specifically for your long iron game, the middle mantle allows you to keep the ball low to maximize distance. More often than not, balls with the features mentioned previously fall short here, subsequently leaving you ball short of its intended target, in this case, the target is the green. With the Penta TP, there will be no more ballooning or fall just short of the green into a bunker.
Inner Mantle Of TaylorMade Ball
So far it seems the Penta is only good for low-level high spin shots. We all know there are many times throughout the course of 18 holes where we need a large loft and a steep descending angle, to “plop” the ball where we want it. This issue is addressed with the Penta’s 4th inner mantle. The Inner mantle gives you the best of both worlds here, longer distance with a controllable, soft landing.
The Penta TP Tour Core
The core as we know is the heart of any golf ball. Some prefer a lower compression rate, while others are willing to sacrifice distance for more control. The Penta offers you the best of both worlds here. The core allows for high launch levels and low spin rates off the tee, which maximizes the carry AND distance, great for those heavy hitters out there.
From all indications the TaylorMade Penta TP 5 layer Tour ball is the real deal. No longer will we all have to sacrifice on the feature for another. If there was a perfect ball in all our heads, this might very well be the one guys!
Nike One Vapor Speed Golf Ball Review
A golf ball is a golf ball, right? How many times have you heard a non-golfer asking that? That’s kind of like saying “a frying pan is a frying pan” to Emeril Lagasse or Rachel Ray (both have their own line of cookware).
No, a golf ball is not only a golf ball. To the non-golfer, probably any golf ball will do. But for the avid golfer, the right golf ball can bring the game up a notch, and most would agree that this particular golf ball should be one that avid golfers take an interest in.
The Nike One Vapor Speed Golf ball comes from a long line of one of the best-known names in sports of all kinds. This ball features technology that was tested and validated on tour. Consistency and added length to your drives are the results of combined science and technology. Amateur players (and professionals alike) looking for longer distance after teeing up will appreciate the ball’s reformulated core which is responsible for its increased speed.
Key Features of the Vapor Speed Ball By Nike
- All Nike One Vapor Speed Golf balls contain or conform to the following:
- Manufactured for maximizing distance
- Tour-validated and tour tested
- Optimized for amateur players
- Optimized aerodynamics
- Increased ball speed
One reviewer with swing speeds from 90 to 100 said that in his search for a ball with good spin, soft feel and great distance; the Nike One Vapor had fitted the bill. He also appreciates the price. In the looks department, there was no distracting writing or graphics.
As far as distance was concerned, even in wet conditions, he got good 10 yards more than with other golf balls that he has tried. Regarding durability, one of the balls had only a minor scuff after contact with a tree and approximately five holes of play. He was further pleased by the fact that this was the first ball that was apparently able to withstand his lob wedge’s MD grooves.
After one pitch and two full shots, not a single mark appeared on the Nike One Vapor Speed. And the spin! This 11 handicapper bagged three birds with the aid of the roll upon landing. Though it is considered soft, this urethane ball feels harder than any other he has found.
The feel is firm but not in the least bit awful. If you favor NXT’s, he says, you’ll probably love this ball. A gift from his wife, two dozen TP Burners, may be on that back shelf for some time to come. Many reviewers agree that this ball is a great value for money.
Another reviewer, though impressed with the Nike One Vapor ball’s durability and distance, still felt that his Srixon Trispeed, when it comes to feeling during putting and spin, still has the edge (albeit slim). This is not enough to really be looked seriously as a con because it sounds more like a personal preference to me.
Players with slower swings that have been spending a lot of money on top of the line balls, have found that they are much happier with the relatively reasonably priced Nike One Vapor Speedballs; not only for the price but the performance, durability, and speed they get out of each ball.
Some reviewers kept comparing this ball to the NXT, saying that both have good spin, drive decently and are dead center between four balls and two piece balls. Of the two, however, Nike One Vapor received more votes. One reviewer in particular, who said he is not afraid to try new balls, preferred the Vapor because it is lighter, softer, holds the green and flies straighter than the NXT. He suggests buying two boxes at a time to reduce costs – well, I would certainly agree with that!
Used Golf Balls
Used golf balls are everywhere. They are on every hole of every course you play. When you come across one, do you pick it up and play with it, or do you pass it up? If so, that very same ball is resold to pro shops and golf stores to the same golfers who most likely passed by them on the course.
Purchasing used golf balls is nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, there is a large percentage of golfers who play with used balls. There are several different grades of used balls that will dictate the price.
Grade: Perfect – Like New Balls
This grade of golf ball plays as it has never been hit before. These balls are perfect color and are still very shiny, with a glossy finish to them. They almost look like they are out of the case.
Grade: A – Near Perfect Balls
Grade-A levelly is just below the perfect ball. They look very close to the “like new” ball in color and gloss. The only difference is maybe some markings or very small scuffs on it. Any level player can play with these and experience good to above average performance.
Grade: B – Slightly Flawed Balls
The next level down is the B grade used balls. They are still somewhat shiny but may have some minor flaws and marks. Still somewhat shiny finish, but the brand logo may be faded. This ball is suitable for the high handicapper, or someone is just starting to play golf.
Grade: C – Very Used Ball
The lowest level is the C grade used the golf ball. This ball has many scuff marks, has lost its shine and most likely has no visible logo or print anymore. This is a perfect ball for practicing with or when you have a high-risk shot during play that you don’t want to waste a good ball.
If you are looking for cheap golf balls, continue on!
Where to Look for the Best Used Golf Balls?
Since golf balls are manufactured in such a durable manner, there is no point to wasting your hard earned cash always buying new ones.
The difference between new and used golf balls
As opposed to most sporting equipment, a used golf ball will perform in the same manner that a ball directly from the package would perform. Therefore, what would be the point to spending more money than you truly need to on brand new golf balls when you can get the best-used golf balls from many different venues? When you purchase used golf balls from a driving range, there is a good chance that they won’t be refurbished and that you will be buying the balls directly from the range. If you are not a stickler for quality, this may be enough for you, but many golfers will not stand for that. Therefore, purchasing from an online store that specializes in the sale and refurbishing of used golf balls may be your best bet.
Why purchase from an online store?
Driving ranges and private sellers don’t specialize solely in the sale of used golf balls. However, many online businesses make all of their money solely on the sale of used golf balls. Therefore, they are going to ensure that not only they have the best-used golf balls but also that they can sell them to you at a very agreeable rate. Many golfers also only wish to use the same brand of golf ball, and many also think that they would never be able to find those used. That could not be further from the truth.
Do online stores have the good selection?
Whether it is Titleist, Nike or Callaway, you are sure to be able to find your brand of gold ball at a reduced rate. The best-used golf balls are found online because there is a vast array of brands available, and the golf balls are almost surely refurbished in some manner to ensure the best quality.
Cheap Golf Balls
Cheap golf balls (even new) can be perfect golf balls. In fact, if you are an average golfer (15+ handicap) using a cheap golf ball is not a wrong decision. Many brands of balls are inexpensive that will play about the same for you. If you play to a single digit handicap, you may be more partial to a particular brand and ball type.
Inexpensive balls do not need to be new or used. The second you hear the term cheap golf ball, you probably assume it’s a used golf ball. There are dozens of brands that are new but inexpensive, so take your pick! Just remember the cheaper the golf ball, the less the performance.
Cheap Golf Balls – New
New balls that are cheap are good balls but have several characteristics you need to be aware of. Most of them are very hard. What I mean is the coverings give the ball less feel when hitting wedges and putting.
Then again if you are an average golfer, you really won’t know the difference, and it won’t affect your golfing performance one bit!
Cheap Golf Balls – Used
It’s a “no-brainer” that used golf balls will be cheaper. But what you want to pay attention to used golf balls is the coloring, scuff marks and overall feel. There are a ton of used balls that look okay, but when you hit them they go nowhere!
Trial and error is the only way you’ll find out what ball works for you. Whether it is new or used, it all depends on how you like it when you hit it on the course.
What’s the Best Way to Find Used Top Flight Golf Balls?
Top Flight is one of the leading providers of quality golf balls. But don’t worry, because you can still get the same quality without having to pay the same price.

You may think it ‘s hard to find quality used Top Flight golf balls, but it isn’t as difficult as you think it is.
Where should I look for used Top Flight golf balls?
