PXG Xtreme Premium Golf Balls Review
One Ball to Rule Them All
I received a box of PXG Xtreme Premium Golf Balls which were used for multiple rounds of golf and some FlightScope testing in the iGolfReviews Office by Carl’s Place DIY Golf. I was impressed by this golf ball that seems to fit a perfect middle between spin and distance golf balls.
This is the definitive review of PXG Xtreme Premium Golf Balls for 2023.
PXG entered the golf market 10 years ago now with bold and expensive clubs. Bob Parsons created an ultra-premium brand with high performing golf clubs. The reputation hasn’t changed much, even though their pricing and branding have some. While PXG still pushes inovation and is clearly a market disrupter, their price point for clubs is no longer the stratosphere. They sell both: the most expensive clubs and some of the most affordable clubs. This year PXG decided to enter the golf ball market with one ball: the PXG Xtreme Premium Golf Ball with the motto: one ball to do it all or as I say, One Ball to Rule Them All.
The PXG Xtreme Premium Golf Ball is designed to offer the best of both extremes. You know that the 2 golf balls that are at the top of the golf ball food chain offer spin or distance. They are meant to separate themselves from each other to give what a golfer needs, usually around the green, but even in other areas of the course when it comes to spin. The PXG Xtreme Premium Golf ball attempts to be one ball that beats them in every category. They certainly offer a little more spin off every club. I really noticed it off the wedges. These balls have tons of greenside zip.
The PXG Xtreme Premium Golf Balls are designed for speed and distance to go along with the spin. They pretty high launching which is partly do to the spin, but that higher flight does help with carry distance. Theses ball really carry in the air a long ways. I was impressed by carry distance, even if the overall distance off driver was maybe a yard or two shorter. This is spin related but again long carry is key to better drives. You can’t always rely on roll out, nor is that consistent like carry distance is.
The PXG Xtreme Premium Golf Ball comes with a really nice alignment aid that can be used for lining up putts or target line for drives. While other balls have this or you can draw an alignment line on with a Sharpie, this is a very function way to brand the golf ball for Parsons Xtreme Golf. I liked the look and appreciated its function on the course.
The PXG Xtreme Golf Balls offer really good feel. There are firm but still have nice feel off every club, especially the putter. I liked the firm, muted click as the ball rolled across the green. The Urethane cover is bright and gripping without getting sticky. The feel of the longer clubs was firm but not hard. They are painted a bit whiter than some of the other premium brands and if you want to cut them apart, you will find the inner layers to be red and blue to go with the white cover. The cover I found to be very durable too so that it will last all 18 holes easily unless you lose it in the woods or water.
The biggest surprise of the PXG Xtreme Premium Golf Ball is actually the price: $40. I think the reputation of PXG’s high prices were expected to carry over into their golf ball too, but they actually held the line and priced them still at a pro ball level, but not as high as their competitors. It is One Ball to Rule Them All. It offers long carry, high spin and good feel. The alignment aid is nice and durability is excellent. It is an overall high performing ball.
