Hi All...new member and this is my first post.

I picked up a dozen of the new two piece Nike Crush and played them today. They are designed for the moderate swing speed player, approximately 80 to 95 mph, and have a compression rating of 63. It has 312 dimples, which is supposed to help with lift. They cost $21.95 a dozen.

Driver
Worked as advertised. The ball didn't have much side spin and traveled far with tighter dispersion. It felt good coming off the driver without being squishy.

Mid-Irons
The ball had good trajectory without ballooning and the feel was good of a well struck iron shot was very solid.

Short irons
No ballooning again. Good trajectory and landed softly, but again little spin.

Wedges
Was nicely surprised at how well the ball felt off the wedges...nice and soft. I was also surprised that there was some spin, not a whole lot, but more than I anticipated with a two piece ball.

Putter
The ball wasn't squishy or clicky off the putter, but somewhere in between. If was a good ball to putt with.

Durability
The ball looked the same after 18 holes as it did right out of the box.

Conclusion
The Nike Crush is a Noodle+ on steroids. If you are looking for a good performing two piece ball at a reasonable price you may want to give the Nike Crush a try.

Thanks for the review. What other balls have you tried and how does it compare to them?

I found these to be long but they don't spin. They putt okay

It's a two-piece ball. :-)

Pick a two-piece ball and I have tried it. :-)

The closest that comes to the Crush is the Noodle+, which was my two-piece ball of choice until I found the Crush.

You really like the Crush better than the Noodle+, even at the price difference?

Yes. I get more spin around the green with the Crush.
