Played with the new Elixir today and absolutely smashed it. Love this golf ball. Straight and long. Highly recommend vs other name brands that are twice the price. Soft around the green and felt great off the tee! I will be ordering more and never return to the other ball I have been playing. Thanks Oncore!
Pros and Cons
My regular ball is Titleist Velocity or Chrome Hex Hot so this is my comparison. First impression out of the box, the outer surface is a matte look and feels much different to the touch. Tried today for first time. Length off of driver was disappointing, but could have been me. It was a hot and very humid day and we all have those days when some things are just off. Fairway woods seemed good distance with straighter trajectory than my usual Velocity. I'm looking to give them another try but hope driver results improve. I only had a few long and mid range irons today so can't rate for that, although the feel seemed real good. They did seem to check up nicely on the green. In brief, not a lot of difference from my regular balls. Will be giving them a few rounds before I have a final opinion. Only doing a 4 star rating because of the projections by the company more than my disappointment in the ball itself.
last year i was fitted with the ELIXR i only played with it a few rounds, it had a good feel but felt HEAVY, it flew great, better and higher than it felt, but i was playing Competitive Team Golf at the time and didn't have time to compare it with the golf balls i normally play. i've decided to give it another try hope to compare it with other balls i play, usually Bridgestone, Callaway and Titlesit. i hope to have a better assessment of it.
Soft feel and long
I have used the Elixr white ball before but wanted to try the other colors (yellow/matte green). I ordered the 6 dozen bundle and have used both the yellow and green balls to great satisfaction. They have a softer feel than my ProV1 and the distance is terrific. I really enjoy the colored balls more than a white ball now and highly recommend the Elixr to the intermediate to better player. This golf ball has been great for my game and has created more confidence that they will perform to the highest standard. They have done especially well in windy conditions and have a wonderful stopping action on the greens. Thank you Encore golf.
I recently purchased 3 dozen of the Elixirs. I have played 10 rounds so far and I am slightly disappointed. Although the ball does fly well and stop quickly, I have noticed the cover seems to cut very easily . I have discarded 4 balls already. I have played Titleist Pro-V1 for many years and was trying to save some money, but I think I may switch back due to durability. Sorry forgot to rate.
