This is a long but factual experience. I got my test balls about 2 months ago. Finally had a chance to put them to the launch monitor. cally chrome soft, last year prov 1 and 1x, birdgstone 330s, tm tp all were used with a Bang storm 9.5 GD TOUR AD GPS 45 1/2 short and sweet all specs on new "test" v 200 rpm less LA 16*, 5.7 yards L of c. And 10 to 12 yards longer than any other ball. Take it for what it's worth but they did something to the new ball.
