    All the reviews on your channel are just your opinion anyway are they not?

    I was thinking that since robots and launch monitors don't take/record the shots for us on the course then it could simply be what the human thinks about each ball (especially given how many people say the difference is in the 'feel' anyway)

    Of course they are and as I say in each, without access to the data, that's all they can be. However an extended test and just my opinion or "guess" on what each ball fees like and is would be even more dull than my usual fare. I think the test has legs but in a more structured way

    Re: Blind test on golf balls ?

    In all honesty if you take the equivalent ball from each of the top manufacturers we wouldn't really be able to tell much of a difference at all. I normally just buy what ever is on the best deal out of Tileist, Callaway or Bridgestone. If I was to cast any type of opinion I feel I get a bit more distance on the longer shots with a ProV1, but I much prefer the way Chrome soft feels with the putter.

    But if I was being blind tested, I'm not sure I could say which is which, unless I could make my decision with my putter.
