Best Golf Balls Reviewed & Rated for Quality and Performance
Criteria Used for Evaluation
It is no secret that there are only a few top-tier brands in the industry. From Callaway to TaylorMade, these brands are the most infamous in the industry and are known for supplying some of the best products in golf gear. With that said, we wanted to ensure that the playing field was even and fair while also supplies a wide variety of products. However, they all had to be of quality! We measured this factor by looking at the different elements that make up these items as well as the history of the brand and what users can expect as far as customer service.
With that said, we cannot go out on the range and test every single one, so reviews became our go-to to ensure that individuals were happy with the product. As far as quality of the brand, we had to separate it by tier to ensure that we were not comparing one everyday brand to a luxury brand. This is where variety and research came in. With that said, each brand on this list, whether a top tier brand or everyday gear manufacturer, they all take the quality of their product very seriously and ensure that individuals will be satisfied. With that said, how do the designs differ from each other?
As another important aspect to take into consideration, we knew that design was very important to us when picking out the top ten. With the proper design, an individual is guaranteed that their new product will be able to handle the wear and wear of the golf game while also being able to work perfectly. With that said, the design tends to be the same due to the traditional spherical shape. However, it is the subtle differences that we took into consideration. For example, the dimples on the balls are different from manufacturer to manufacture, with some offering more than others.
The larger and shallower the dimple, the higher the flight will be. Most have between 300 and 500 dimples, which affect the way it travels through the air.
Now, another important aspect of the design is whether the product was a soft or a hardball. What differentiates them both is the core and how the product reacts to the club when an individual swings. With a softball design, usually, there is less of a golf club with shock and vibration while allowing the product to fly easier. With a hardball design, it tends to have more momentum and power once in the air.
Another important factor that we looked into is what materials the golf balls is made out of. The material makes the difference between a good ball, and a great ball. We looked at the golf balls from the inside out and made sure that the ones on our list are made out of the best materials available.
As another important factor to take into consideration, we were not even fully aware that each one had different core interiors. For the professional, this is an obvious fact. However, for a novice, this may be a new concept. With that said, we realized that the core can truly affect how the ball reacts to the club, how far it will go, and how well it will land. For example, some ball cores are made from a rubber material while others offer different compression values.
With that said, users should pick out the best ball designs and makers that suits their level of expertise to better play the sport and better practice. There are many different balls that are designed for amateurs, as people will be able to see in the pro’s section of our articles. Now, if the core is so important, is the exterior design as equally important?
The answer is that, yes the exterior design is as equally important as the core. A proper exterior material and design ensure that the product will have the perfect amount of traction alongside the perfect amount of speed. All of this is in part due to the dimple design. So, depending on how a brand creates and designs the exterior, it will either perform poorly or well. The dimple designs allow the ball to either fly faster and have smooth traction while on the grass, or not fly well at all.
Now that we have talked about the primary designs and pieces of importance, we are eager to share and talk about the price per pack and what users can expect. Now, as we said above there are certain brands that run the gamut as being the top tier in the industry. Therefore, users can expect that the price of the pack will be more costly than other unknown brands. However, this also adds to the value of the product. In this process, we noticed that there are three different pricing scales.
The top tier brands will offer about a 12-pack for a pricey amount. However, they are considered the top of the line as far as the industry and their products are expertly designed with value in mind. With that said, they are pricey and the amateur individual should not use the brand unless they plan on tossing away three dollars per lost item.
The second tier of brands is the low-end and medium-end everyday brands. These balls come in 12, 24, or 36 in a pack for the same price as a top tier 12-pack. With that said, these are the ideal products for individuals to be practicing with because there will not be much of a loss of money if they lose it.
As the second tier of brands, we realized that some makers specialize in creating collectible items. Therefore, if an individual is wanting one that resembles the Arizona State logo or any other college, they can use this maker and pick their ideal sports team or college to get a cool design. It seems that many users only use this ball out on the field if they know they can retrieve it. Otherwise, they use it as a collectible.
As the last criteria that we wanted to take into consideration, we were actually surprised at the variety of color choices. Some brands, in particular, will offer everything from multi-colored packs to pink and purple individual choices. With that said, this helps an individual distinguish his or herself on the course and also makes it easier to find while out on the course, which is an easier process compared to having all white.
With that said, what we found most unique is the translucent design that we included on this list. We were shocked to discover that there are some brands that will offer a unique translucent coating so it is easier for an individual to see the ball at night. With that in mind, we hope we added a wide variety into the mix and of course, depending on the brand, an individual can even customize a product with their favorite college or sports team.
