Recreational players now have two new models from Titleist, the TruFeel and Tour Soft ionomer cover balls in several different colors.
Softer ionomer cover
Spherically tiled 376 tetrahedral dimple design
White, Yellow, Matte Red
$25 per dozen
Titleist Tour Soft
Reformulated ionomer cover
346 quadrilateral dipyramid dimple design
White, Optic Yellow, Green
$40 per dozen
The cover for the TruFeel is softer than the previous version for better results around the green and the dimple pattern is designed for a penetrating low ball flight to help give more distance by additional roll.
The Tour Soft quadrilateral dipyramid dimple pattern, which I don’t understand so don’t ask me, Titleist says is “for optimized flight and distance,” and with the larger core added distance is produced. The cover is a proprietary formula called Fusablend and is a combination of ionomers and polymers which soften the cover for more spin and therefore control for scoring shots.
