PEARL GOLF PURE SOFT X

Golf Asia - - GOLFING GEARGUIDE -

YOU NEED TO KNOW:

A soft ure­thane cov­ered ball specif­i­cally de­signed to de­liver re­duced spin in the long game. The core’s size and com­pres­sion are op­ti­mised to turn en­ergy to ball speed while also feel­ing soft. Two man­tle lay­ers con­trol spin, and a soft durable cover of­fers great con­trol on short game shots.

You prob­a­bly wouldn’t be­lieve a ball avail­able at this price (S$40/doz) could post both the fastest driver ball speed and high­est wedge back­spin rate for our test pro, but it hon­estly did. It shows how im­por­tant it is to get the right ball to suit your game and swing speed. But it also high­lights there’s some great per­for­mance balls out there for less than S$50 a dozen.

Ure­thane White, yel­low, or­ange Even though the Pure Soft X proved its cre­den­tials through data, our test pro didn’t love the Pure Soft X. He said he’d be re­luc­tant to put it in play be­cause re­sults were more var­ied and feel was pretty firm.

Look­ing at data alone the X was a very strong per­former for our higher swing speed test pro. If you’re a typ­i­cal “X” ball player with a strong swing speed look­ing to re­duce your an­nual spend on golf balls the Pure Soft X is well worth fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
