    I am a 68 y/o and have a 16.7 HC index. I currently use DT Solo. I have always been an avg., "Fred Funk" type of distance w/ 90 to 95 MPH swing speed. What does the team recommend for a ball.

    You're using a really good ball to begin with, but it never hurts to try others to see if they might help your game. Try buying a sleeve of the NXT Tour, NXT Tour S, Pro V1 and Pro V1x and take each ball type out and see how it performs for you during a & contrast each with what you are currently using. It's the best way I know to find the best ball for your game, short of going to a ball fitting session.

    I think the most underestimated ball around is the Titleist NXT Tour S golf ball! It delivers great high-performance characteristics and a significant soft feel. Give it a try, see what you think.I too am a senior and its what Im now playing! Love it.
  4. Give the NXT Tour S a shot, you will like it. I agree with Kevin B "It delivers great high-performance characteristics and a significant soft feel".

    Absolute nothing wrong with the DT. I would recommend trying out the NXT Tour. Very solid all around ball for the price.

    Tom I'm 69 and go through a spring ball selection every year as Barry B suggests. I get a sleeve of everything Titleist makes and spend a few weeks making a choice.

    I played NXT Tours for a while and then last year switched to Pro V1x for a little higher launch. This year I decided to stay with the x because it feels better than the others did at the start of the season, my swing speed runs from 90 to 95 as well.

    Is there something about your current ball that you don't like? What performance are you trying to improve with a different ball? What type of feel do you like in the ball?

    I know, more questions than answers but if you were in my shop this is the discussion we would be having.

    I am 70 and really like the DT Trusoft. It seems to spin a little more around the greens. Keep playing as much as you can. Good luck.
