I recently wrote a review of the Titleist HP Tour ball, so I thought seeing I had also used these balls I should also write a review of the Titleist HP Eclipse ball. Golf is one of those sports where the equipment you use can make a big difference. When I first starting playing the game I used equipment I had begged, borrowed and stolen/found. I used a mish mash of clubs and balls that had been given to me or I had found. Then as my game improved I started spending a little bit of money on my clubs and balls and my scores started to improve as a result. One of the most important pieces of equipment when playing golf is your ball. Despite this only being a small object it can be very important which ball you use. The Titleist HP Eclipse ball is a really good standard of golf ball, so now left have a closer look at this ball.
The Titleist HP Eclipse golf ball really is a classy little piece of golfing equipment. Designed to give you extra distance, feel and spin this ball has some nice little bit of engineering going on. This ball is one of the balls used be the pro golfers and it really should help improve your game. But enough of the hard sell, how does it play when out on the course?
Well first of all I didn't really feel like I was getting any extra length when using this ball. I'm not the best when it comes to driving a ball a long way and this ball really didn't seem to improve my driving. That said it did have a very nice feel to it. It makes a juicy little sound when it pings of your club and it seems to go where I aim it more often than not. When I play a poor shot it doesn't seem to ark away as much as some balls would, this means my poor shots are not quite as bad. If hit correctly the ball seems to fly straight and true.
The ball is also designed to give players extra spin when pitching the ball. This gives a player more control over their iron shots. To be honest though I have never been capable of spinning a golf ball so it is a little hard for me to judge how these balls perform in this respect. They do seem to land and roll very nicely though. When putting I know the ball will roll in the manner it should do. When it comes to durability these are very good. Some balls start to crack and wear very fast, the HP Eclipse balls seem to last very well though, even when I shank one into a tree, more often than not it survives with no real damage.
These balls tend to retail at around £2 per ball. That is quite expensive for a golf ball and if you are in the habit of losing a lot of balls then maybe these are not ideal for you. However, if you take your game seriously and want a good reliable ball then these might be for you. Given the choice of the Eclipse or the Tour ball I think the Tour ball just edges it for me, but even so, I would say that the Titleist HP Eclipse ball is a very good golf ball.
Summary: A Very Good Ball
