similar to your dunlop post..you will be ok with most balls until you improve...
some may disagree with me but, 'balls are all about the feel' for me. I use the ball i do because i cant get 'feel' with harder balls.

I use the dunlop or donnay balls at the moment. I do have callaway cxr's but until my game improves they won't be used. This, because I had some srixon balls and lost them very quickly, money gone. I will get there eventually ( not lost any balls recently ) so could be soon. Looking forward to being able to 'feel' the ball on my shots.

I'm with Dan. I think the better you better you get, the better you strike the ball and the more you appreicate the feel of a golf ball and workability around the greens.

It's not really about what ball you use, the key is to use the same type of ball all the time - that way you get use to the feel of a certain brand. Personally I'm not sure of lake balls either, OK they've been resprayed and polished, but how long have they been submerged for and how much water has been absorbed? How much has the core degraded?
Better to stick with a budget brand and buy them new. I used to use Dunlop DDRs, cheap as chips for a sackful brand new but all the same.

I'm with you on lake balls Tim. Lost my faith in them when I got a box of Titleists with the Callaway hexagon dimples!!
Also won/come across loads of refurbed Pro V1s, but they are never more than practise balls for me. All too often a good strike can leave an emlusion stain on the club face. The balls could be anything under that paint

un-refurbished lake balls are in my opinion better that any refurbished balls for the reasons stated. you dont know whats under that paint. atleast with a 'one hit' you can look at the condision and judge it from there..

I personally go on eBay and get the "pearl" grade balls and to be totally honest they have been some of the best balls around for the price None are refinished and some look completely brand new whilst others just have small pen marks on them Currently using the Nike 20xi range of balls and I find them amazing Great feel off the club face and putter but the only problem I have found is the do cut up very easily with my wedges Brand new £30 a doz but from eBay you can pick them up from as little as £15-£20 a doz

Well ive started to use srixon soft ball because i have not got a very fast swing speed and i find these balls great for around the green shots also i feel more confident with them.

balls such as prov1's have a high spin rate which COULD make any slice or hook even worse which is another good reason to avoid them

My preference is for refurb'd Nike balls, they seem to just be in good condition and have a good feel. Get them off amazon.
