      One of the best distance golf balls available

      Owned by Sumitomo Rubber Industries, the Japanese company 'Srixon' have forged a reputation for manufacturing a range of good quality golf related accessories. I've found that Srixon's golf balls are generally agreeable, and i'm more than happy to use them on a regular basis. Today i'm taking a look at their 'Distance' balls - designed, as their name suggests, to allow the average golfer to gain as many yards as possible from their drives.

      You can purchase a twelve pack of Srixon Distance for £9.38 on Amazon - it's a price which I feel is very competitive when you consider the fact that the golf balls at the top end of the market retail for around £3 each.

      Performance Tests
      - - - - - - - - - - - -
      In terms of its distance, the Srixon ball is impressive - but so it should be considering that this is the main selling point of the product. I found myself hitting the ball out to around two-hundred-and-eighty yards with a lot of roll after the ball has landed which is by no means bad. From the point of view of feel, the Srixon isn't terrible - distance balls have a tendency to be rock hard, but the subject of today's review has a slight (and I mean only slight) softness which is great to see. There's some spin in evidence from shots to a receptive green with the wedge, but obviously nothing like as much as the class leading Titleist ProV1 ball. The Durability is good, and I usually get away with using one of these for a couple of rounds before I notice any discernible scratches or grazing.

      Final Word
      - - - - - - -
      Overall the Srixon Distance is one of the best distance balls I have used to date - it's as long as any other ball in its class that i've used in the past, and it does have a modicum of feel. Distance balls in general are usually aimed at the beginner golfer, but I have no qualms in using these balls in both practice and competitive play - recommended.
