I have been doing some research over the last couple days about golf ball compression. I have ~95 MPH swing Speed, and therefore I have determined that a good ball for me would have a compression rating around 90-95. Could anyone post up a link that maybe has a table/chart/list of balls compression ratings? Or recommend a ball that you know is in the 90 range? Thanks!

I currently play: Nike One Tour, Callaway tour i, and Bridgestone e6 balls.

I too would like to see a chart listing compression ratings for today's golf balls. It used to be 80 for women/seniors, 90 for the average player and 100 for strong players and professionals.

Thanks for the tip but the balls they show on their testing (that I found) are 3,4 and 5 years old. They do not seem to have current compression on todays ball.

I can tell you that when I did my Bridgestone ball fitting they told me that my swing speed wasn't high enough to compress the Nike One Tour D. My swing speed was 102. I think the e6 has a compression of 55 from what the Bridgestone rep told me. I like the e6, but the RX was what I was fitted for, and the numbers showed why. They guy at northway 8 told me they are going to have the bstone people back around fathers day, so keep your eye out for that.

Odd, as I just did a ball fitting at GG and the Nike One Tour D was the 4th recommended ball, my swing speed is 105pmh.

To add I just did the Bridgestone fitting last weekend at our club and they recommended the 330-S over the Nike for what its worth.

I would recommend the Bridgestone B330-RXS, or maybe the Srixon Z-Star if you're a low handicap
