Snell Golf founder Dean Snell has been selling golf balls for three years now, and, until 2018, he had offered two models: My Tour Ball and the Get Sum. But for the New Year, Snell created a third offering, creating the MTB Red ball to complement the original My Tour Ball, now improved and renamed the MTB Black.
Ryan Ballengee played a handful of rounds with the MTB Red ball — specifically, two of them over five rounds — while on a golf trip in Florida. He was impressed by the distance, control and spin of the MTB Red balls, which have four pieces compared to the MTB Black’s three.
Ballengee reviews the characteristics of the MTB Red golf balls and explains how the properties of the ball’s layers are able to build driver speed with its core and a mantle layer while maintaining greenside control and short-iron spin with its urethane cover and outer mantle.
The Snell Golf MTB Red (and MTB Black) golf balls are now available for $32 per dozen from the Snell Golf website.
