Do you use a single ball (brand and type) when you play?

    On a side if anyone has new 1st year csx I want some. I hate the graphene feel, sorry.

    Sort through what you get, take out the 1st gen, sell the others.

      If I find balls that are “good”
      And in good shape i’ll save them and give them to friends who just pick stuff up and play randomly

        One brand and model ball...all the time...even when practicing.

        If you think using different balls affects your putting, just try mixing balls when practicing chipping or pitching!

          My go-to’s are Callaway Superhot Bold and Truvis. I have no problem playing random balls that I find if they’re in good shape and it’s actually allowed me to try various balls that I may not have purchased otherwise.

            Only use one ball. Right now it is AXV since it is lower spinning and we are in the windy season here in Texas. On calmer days I’ll use a Vice Pro+ since it spins more.

              I only use 1 type of ball during a round

              In my bag I have Chromesoft X, but I also have a dozen Chromesoft that I will most likely put in to play when the weather cools down
              If I find any balls on the course whilst playing I will keep them to give to Jen as, at her level of ability, it doesn't make much difference to her which ball she uses

                  In practice rounds I only putt with a same new ball, which is different from the same near new ball I have been walloping around the course. If the game ball gets bladed, cart path, tree etc I get a new one. I mark two dots on the putter ball... 1 dot on the play ball. In regular rounds scoring, bets etc I use 2 new balls per 9 and carry a wet microfiber towel to clean ball/ club. I am also mindful water is left, wind is right to left and I draw the don't go there somehow before I pull a club....I don't like losing balls either, but consider the penalty stroke worse than the lost ball cost. little off topic...

                      one ball brand/type per round...but different for different rounds.
                      I have my tournament balls (Bridgestone 330)
                      I have my "scramble with prizes" balls...found Pro-V1s
                      and I have my "just hacking around with the regular foursome" which will be 3 of whatever brand I have 3 of, with my custom marking job on them. Pretty much anything except the rocks known as Top Flite

                        I play two different balls mostly just depending on how I am feeling. If I am not playing well or feel tight I play the cheap Wilson double dozen Zip. Its actually a really good ball for the cheap price and doesn't hurt my feelings if I lose a few. If I am playing well and feeling good, I go with Srixon Z-Stars. They are just a fabulous ball and work really well for my game when my game is on.

                          I play the same ball all round. That being said, I will play about 4 or 5 different balls that all suit my game.

                          If I find others on the course, they go in the bag for hitting into the woods at the house.
                          Always remember, the same country that invented golf and called it a game, invented bag pipes and called it music.

                            I'll play the ProV1 pretty much all the time. Sometimes I might switch it off and play the TP5X once in a while

                              I will play the same brand of ball the whole round. I have been trying different ones throughout the last year and will be sticking with the Bridgestone Tour B RX. Any balls I find go to the son in law.

                                Always the same- TM Project (a) or TP5, they're often easily found recycled for about $1.50 each, all my regulars know that's my brand, so there's rarely any question about which is mine, and I like the consistency of play.
