Why'd you have to ruin my Halloween costume?

It takes a certain weight oil but I can't remember what. That said I use 30 weight with no issues.

Seems like the driver game is being taken over my Taylormade, Callaway, Cobra, and Ping.

Golf balls I use mostly Callaway Chrome Soft or Nike Mojo.

Yeah I like Nike One also, those and Callaways play well on greens and short game. I don't notice shit off the tee box or fairways regardless of the ball.

Used to have ap2 then switched to mizunos.

Since heavy tracking I've retired from golf though so I picked up the easiest clubs to use. Big time cavities lolol.

Still rocking Scotty Cameron though. Can't really sell bc wife bought it for me.

Yep. Titleist still makes good stuff. The Pro V1 is still as good as or better than any ball out there as well.

I used Callaway balls for years and I believe they have the best aerodynamics (dimples) so wind will not influence them as much. I used Srixon Z Star for a while and like the thin cover they use and are priced a touch lower than other tour-caliber balls. Last year I hit Callaway Chrome Soft all season and love their super-soft feel, especially with the putter. This year I bought 8 dozen custom Pro V1 so I can run the same ball all season long. After most of the season behind me I think I'm going to stay with Pro V1s. While wind will push them around more than a Hex-dimpled Callaway; V1s are just so consistent around the greens! Nothing I've found works as well as V1s when trying to put a ball close to a pin... Especially when playing less-than-full wedge shots.

My guess is the difference you may be seeing in how wind affects the ball flight is due to spin rate. I'm a plus handicap and I for sure wouldn't be able to tell a difference in aerodynamics.

Well there is absolutely a difference in aerodynamics between dimple design. I guess the (very fair) discussion would only be about if you or I could actually distinguish the difference.
