Long distance with exceptional feel and cut-proof cover durability.
Long Distance with Driver and Irons
This ball is a great mid priced, gamers ball. It has all the things a mid handicapper wants in a ball at a great price. The mid handicappers want distance but also enjoy the feel. This ball has it both. They say it is a softer feel, but it is more mid feeling off all clubs. Mid priced, for mid handicappers, and mid feel... Let's hope the distance isn't mid either. The ball is surprisingly straight, but also controlable. It gets little spin off the driver with just enough spin around the greens to make any mid-handicapper happy. Thats what puts this ball probably higher in the market than any other $20 ball out there.
Driver Grade: B-
It isn't very often when I play a mid range gamers ball and it has little spin off the driver and good feel. This ball was that blue moon mid-priced ball. It had a mid feel off the driver with little spin and side-spin. It's almost like titleist makes all their balls with tour inspired aspects. The sound when being hit and mid-high flight always made me think I launched it, But it just fell short of my average. For the price and who it is geared for this thing really shined. But the distance wasn't there like I expected. I was hoping the Solo mean't that it would seem like you're hitting a solo home run everytime, but I guess I was wrong.
Irons Grade: B+
Straight high flight that I love. Everyone has this fixation for mid-flight. I love a high flight on my irons that can sit nicely on the greens, specially when not using a green gripping tour ball. It felt better off the irons than the driver, and had better average distance on the irons as well. The ball can be controlled like a much higher priced ball and do just about anything any handicap would need. While chipping this ball held up with even the hardest flops, and barely showed some marks. The grooves didn't bite into the ball, but more like shaved the ball. The spin on chips were about 50% of a premium ball, but still not bad when you hit it just right. The ball always kept straight lines easily while in the air, and seemed to stay strong even during some wind.
Putter Grade: C+
Where I am really picky about feel is in my putting. If a ball says soft feel than is a mid or harder feel while putting, I get turned off. If a ball says soft, than I want it soft when I'm putting. This ball had a mid feel while putting and kept it's lines easily and I made some great putts with it. But...It is not as soft as you may think. This may be the one true downfall of this ball.
If you are sick of buying those $15-$20 and just always having a bad time, buy this ball, enjoy it, and have fun with golf. It may not outdrive a $25-$35 ball, it may not feel as soft as them either, but it will keep you in the game just about everytime. You can't beat a ball that plays like this at this price. The ball is a great all arounder for the mid-handicappers and maybe some lower guys looking to get for control. In it's price range you can get a longer ball, you can get a softer ball, but you wont find the "all in one" package this ball is.
If you like the DT Solo but want more distance - Try the Taylormade Burner Golf Ball.
If you like the DT Solo but want a softer feel - Try the Srixon Soft Feel Golf Ball.
