If you read my out of the gate review of the TruSoft Golf Ball by Titleist, then you know I liked it and feel like they have a winner here. Well, I have played a couple of rounds exclusively with the DT TruSoft and I have to say I really love this golf ball.
It is soft and great for colder weather, with a low penetrating flight, and lots of rollout. After finding that it was definitely a lower flight ball with the driver, I lofted up my Taylormade R1 from my normal 9 to 9.5 degrees. I know it doesn’t seem like much but it made a big difference in my distance off the tee with the TruSoft. After lofting up a bit I was able to reproduce the ball flight I like, and achieved my “normal” driving distances that I look for.
I really think this ball shines with the long irons like my 4 and 5 iron off the tee. It is butter smooth and has a great trajectory. I have been able to hit my new RSi2 4 iron consistently 200+ yards and right down the middle. However, I can hit a 5 or 6 iron into a green and get it to hold as well. The ball seems to have pro spin, similar to the higher priced multi-layer balls the pros play. I was able to easily hop and stop the ball with most of my irons, and even spin it back a bit with my wedges. I think it has the perfect spin from 100 yards with my 50 degree wedge, small back spin, great stopping power. I feel like I can go right at the flag with this ball more than I would normally with a 2 piece ball. I certainly would have to consider that when playing the Titleist Velocity for example.
So, my more considered advice is this. If you are looking for a ball that you can love without feeling really upset if you rinse one once in a while because they are reasonably priced, but don’t make you give up pro spin and feel, then this is your ball.
Add this one to any golfer’s Christmas list, at $21 a dozen for the holidays, you really can’t go wrong!
