10 LA GOLF BALL
The well-reviewed LA GOLF BALL from LA GOLF comes in tenth on balls that flew the farthest in the robot testing with a driver.

8 PXG Xtreme

7 Bridgestone Tour B X
Bridgestone Tour B X balls have matched the OPXG Xtreme for distance and tout their REACTIV iQ tech as a gamechanger
REACTIV iQ is a smart cover technology that reacts to the force of impact and rebounds quickly on tee shots, delivering explosive velocity and increased distance.
6 Callaway Chrome Soft X
The Chrome Soft X Ball is faster off the driver with a spin profile that has been optimized for Tour pros and better players.
However, Callaway still tout the Soft X as ‘better for everyone, from amateurs to major winners’.
5 Srixon Z-Star Diamond
The Srixon Z-Star Diamond has new propriety technology called FastLayer DG Cores.
These layered cores are soft at the center and get firmer from the inside out. According to Srixon, the contrasting compression helps them rebound quicker off the face for greater distance while still providing exceptional feel.
4 Vice Pro Plus
This ball is recommended for advanced players with high swing speeds (110+ mph driver swing speed) and big hitters looking for a tour-level ball for their par 5 pin seekers.
It features a size-increased High Energy Speed Core (HESC) for higher ball speed and has done very well in testing.
3 Mizuno RB Tour X
With an AXIALFLOW dimple that creates a high launch from the driver the Mizuno RB Tour X ball feels sensationally soft at impact.
The new Urethane RB Tour cover was tested for over three years to ensure its durability is satisfying for professionals and amateurs alike.
2 Titleist Pro V1x
Pro V1x balls are marketed as the optimal premium performance choice for players looking for maximum distance, while also needing higher flight and more stopping power.
The Pro V1x is recommended for players with launch conditions that are naturally low in height and low in spin.
1 Titleist Pro V1x Left Dash
Titleist Pro V1x Left Dash golf balls are designed for players chasing high flight with dramatically lower full-swing spin and a firmer feel.
