So I'm not a pure "Titleist" ball guy yet and have been testing out the Bridgestones, Wilsons, and Titleist for a "reasonably" priced ball that still is soft off the putter, good around the greens, and long off the tee. The ProV's and 330's are just priced too high, for my budget, to use all the time.
Anyway, my question is that while rummaging through my golf drawer, I realized that I had a few sleeves of a ball that I've been meaning to try out -- the NXT Tour and also a sleeve of NXT Extremes. Given the annual "updates" that the ball companies are pushing out, how the heck can I figure out what year/model I'm actually hitting. These could be a year old or five. I can't seem to spot any year designation on the box or the balls.
Any thoughts on how to identify these? I've read that newer NXT Tours are good ProV alternative but that the older ones are a bit too hardY ) ***being kind here).
