Maybe the best two-piece ball out there!
August 26, 2013
I have recently been trying to find a replacement ball for my previous favorite, the Pinnacle Platinum Feel. For a two-piece ball that one did just about everything you could ask of it. Have been playing Wilson Duos and Elite 50's frequently and they are great balls for the price.
The Soft Feel by Srixon is an OUTSTANDING two-piece ball for the following reasons: 1) Distance (what everyone wants, right?) This ball is as long as any I've played. Distance off driver, fairway woods and irons including wedges is long and consistent. 2) Feel- again off of every club in the bag, including the putter, this ball gives very nice feedback and is never harsh. 3) Control- The Soft Feel wants to go straight but is definitely workable both directions. It will stop quickly on the green and one can back it up a bit if talented enough with wedges/irons. 4) Durability- I FINALLY lost a ball that I used for at least four rounds...it had seen trees and cart paths up close but I couldn't detect any flight problems even after the scuffing. 5) Price- This ball can be found almost anywhere for $19.99 a dozen and once in a while RBG will give you a deal of about $16 and change. GREAT value!
Pros:Outstanding feel, distance and control. Pretty high ball flight.
Cons:Pretty high ball flight...that's not ALWAYS what you want. Kinda nitpicking here.
