My question is does anyone have any comparative data regarding the degree to which a spin ball will hook or slice vs. a distance ball? Or even an opinion? I just saw a report on CNN/SI's Golf Plus show that reported the new Top Flight 3000 is supposed to add another 7 yards to your distance off the tee. It comes in several versions: Pretty long, REAL long; and REALLY long. They even have Real long AND straight version for those of us that put John Daly on a pedistal. Personally, I like the Maxfli HT, because I tend to hit a low shot and need the wound ball performance. For me, it combines good spin, reasonable distance, AND price (I can get blems for $12/doz on Ebay). The new Titlist offering is running around $45 a dozen. That's way out of my league.Check out www.justballs.com, for different offerings. Or check out Ebay, and experiment until you find something you like. It really boils down to how many balls are you going to go through (wet, damaged, or just used up) and how much your willing to pay. I have a 7 handicap and I like the soft feel of the HT and the ability to get the ball high and land it soft. But I can't say the difference between an HT and a 2-piece ball is so much different that it would change the outcome of my game. It just means I adjust my game to fit the difference in distance and roll.Rock Chalk, y'all,Dr. J . Hawk
