I was just reading in Golf Magazine last night and there was an article about someone who has extensively tested golf balls and will provide recommendations based upon your ability an needs.  He charges $19.00 for the service which is a little steep for me but here is the link:

I am sure many of you read the Golf Magazine article (2/2008) entitled " Best Ball For You." This article has some shortcomings since the majority of tests are conducted for a driver CHS of 90 MPH, which is typical of the average Joe. At this swingspeed (using the TM R7 Superquad driver), Titleist NXT Extreme and NXT Tour carried the furthest (257 yd). Pinnacle Gold FX was 3 yds. behind. Interestingly, Pro VI and VIx were 7 yds back. At a swingspeed of 105 MPH, things got a little more interesting: Pro V1x and TaylorMade TP Black, and Callaway Tour i lead the field at 289-290 yds. It's crazy why they wouldn't list the the NXT or the Pinnacle Gold balls at this ss.

Some of my longest drives were recorded with the NXT Extreme and Pinnacle Gold. The NXT checks up similar to any of the other premium balls out there. There simply isn't enough good data comparing premium balls and players with higher swing speeds (my driver hovers around 109-112 using the swing speed radar). The inexpensive balls do two things: go far and spin less. Isn't that what most of us strive for off the tee? We spend lots of money on shafts and heads to do these two things.   I hit the ball high, so checking up is never a problem. Feel is needed around the greens, but shame on you for not hitting it in the first place!

I'd interested in hearing what others have to say concerning this article.

I haven' t read it but if it really says 257 yards of carry with a swingspeed of 90 MPH I'd be inclined to completely ignore it!!
