Hi Dave,
First, let me give you an early "Congrats!" on your retirement.
In regards to distance vs. spin I don't have stasticical numbers. But my own thoughts are: How much extra distance do you really get from a distance ball? I never thought it was that much, myself personally. But on the other hand, softer spin balls really do make a diffence. I think it may magnify a slice or hook to some degree, but how many times are you just O.B.? Or just out of the fairway by one inch? My point being, if you hit a bad shot(and most of us do, at least occasionally) the ball isn't going to make it that much worse. But to have the backspin when you need it, or be able to draw or fade it is much more desireable to me.
The ball that I play now(Strata Professional 90) ,I think, has the best of both worlds. And it really does putt truer. Now if you ask my Dad though, he hates them(too soft). I also like the Titleist Pro V1, but man, are they expensive!
