Titleist NXT Tour and NXT Tour S Top Rated GOLF BALL Review
The Titleist NXT Tour and NXT Tour S are the latest released golf balls in the company's portfolio for 2016, built and engineered for distance and performance. Retailing for $45 a dozen (MSRP), the latest gen of Titleist NXT Tour and NXT Tour S are high performance pieces of golf gear, focused at delivering low driver and long iron spin, promoting amazing distance, together with top tier shot stopping control. To achieve these goals, Titleist put their best technologies into the Titleist NXT Tour and NXT Tour S golf balls, as both of them feature an advance multi component built, including a big dual core with avery soft center, a patented Fusa blend coating and a state of the art dimple design, for improving aerodynamics and enhancing in-wind performance (302 octahedral spherical tiled dimples).
The re-designed and re-engineered Titleist NXT Tour and NXT Tour S can be described as top performers at an affordable price, compared with the Pro V1 line, which comes with a hefty price tag. The Titleist NXT Tour and NXT Tour S boast a dual core built, which is the actual“engine”, composed of a firm outer core and a softer inner core (66% larger than the previous generation). This clever design is aimed at promoting less spin when it comes to full shots, translating into more distance than ever before. In addition to the dual core design, the same soft coating (Fusa blend) comes into play, helping generating similar feel and spin on scoring shots. What I've discovered after taking these babies for a ride on the golf course is that they're longer than the previous generation (2014), and the ball has a lower compression core, which is softer than before; also the Fusa blend cover is a tad softer. The overall softer feeling of the Titleist NXT Tour and NXT Tour S leads to a golf ball which is longer off the irons, drivers and hybrids, due to its lower flight and reduced spin. If you're wondering which one to choose, keep in mind that the white-only Titleist NXT Tour goes farther off the driver and it also flies higher than the NXT Tour S, which feels softer, and it's available in white and yellow.
