    I think the RZN tech had some problems in its infancy and the more Nike experiments with it the better it will be. This could be an advancement in the golf ball where we can all benefit I can't wait to try out some Nike products.

    I'm pretty excited to see these coming soon, I'll definately give them a try. One thing I have noticed though recently is that here in the windy season, I've seen a lot of ballooning with the Nike balls where as I didn't see that with my previous ball. It will be interesting to see how these compare.

    nice set of balls right there.

    But seriously, i liked the 20XI-X that came out but found it to sound pretty awful off the driver (like hitting a rock) and wasn't too great on windy days...I kinda expected such a result of a first time go at it for Nike...hopefully this new round is significantly better, definitely worth a sleeve or two come spring time

    I guess it's not surprising that the marketing speak is geared towards even greater distance vs worrying about the cover or spin.
    I tried out both the xi & the xi s this year with mediocre results. Both models did not take well to my grooves at impact.

    I'm really looking forward to trying these as well as reading about THP testing if/when that happens. I've mostly played the Tour One D, which got phased out. And, my impression of the current 20XI's was that they had great distance off the driver. But, poor distance off the irons. And, I think everyone, at least on THP, is aware of the durability issues.

    From what I've heard, Nike has figured out the compression issue related to irons and fixed it with this new version.

    Always wanted to try the RZN ball but feel it'll give me too much spin off the tee but they do sound good

    I have to figure that with another year of research, Nike probably has figured out some of the issues. I played the originals a bit this year and had mixed results. But than again, I was not playing well. I hit some great shots with them but also some terrible shots. I do agree with the lack of iron feel. I'm not sure I would say it was like hitting a rock or was too soft. Just weird.

    I bet this will be good. I only hit the 20XI-S a handful of times - loved it w/ the driver but not so much with the irons and really didn't like the "clicky" feel & loud noise off the putter.

    I don't think I've ever played a Nike ball. I will try a few when they come out.

    These balls don't have a chance unless Tiger or Rory start using them.

    Depends what you mean by "have a chance". Have a chance to gain market share over current standing? Of course. To take over Titleist? Probably not.
