The Snell Golf MTB Red golf ball comes in two flavors: classic white and optic yellow; both versions are identical tech-wise, and they retail for $31,99 a dozen (MSRP). The MTB Red golf ball features a four-piece construction with a 338 dimple pattern and due to its urethane-made cover, it delivers great (as in premium) feel and durability, together with excellent short game control. The MTB Red's brand new inner mantle is designed to promote spin when playing your short irons on approach shots, while the company's proprietary/patented Dual Feel technology adds to the ball's incredibly soft feel on short shots, while making it a little bit stiffer (as in firmer) on longer shots. Basically, this baby is the best of both worlds, but the ball really shines on short irons and wedges, making for an excellent choice for players looking for a ball that's incredibly easy to get airborne and also sticks around the greens.

Speaking of the latter, the MTB Red delivers consistent spin on short shots and around the greens, and it's also quite long of the tee, and pretty accurate I might add. Another great thing is that the MTB Red feels awesome off the irons, hybrids and woods alike, it's very durable (i.e. it will look as new after many rounds) and considering the price asked, it definitely plays in the best bang for the buck category, standing true to the company's promise made back in 2015 when everything started: to provide golfers with tour quality golf gear at a fraction of the cost. When you go shopping, remember that the MTB Red is not necessarily aimed at better players, and also that spin is only good if you actually need it. Bottom line, the MTB Red perform just as well as any other Tour caliber golf balls, but at a fraction of the cost, proving that the concept of a Tour quality golf ball at a decent price tag is doable and it's a slam dunk in terms of marketing, i.e. everybody loves the same quality for less dough. For the price asked, the MTB Red golf ball provides tremendous value for your money, being a high performance/premium urethane ball, and you should take advantage of this deal while it lasts.
