Honma is largely known for their exceptional golf clubs, but don’t fall asleep on their golf balls because they made our Top 5 Golf Balls of 2018. They have about nine different typles of golf balls. Each ball is specific for the type of golf you play. In our case, the TW-G6 is a ball that performed with fast and slow swing speeds. This ball is designed for you to have incredible spin and distance. Off the tee you can gain maximum distance and with those short iron shots you can throw darts. It is a SIX-piece golf ball with their new soft-spin urethane cover as the sixth layer. The TW-G6 is a great golf ball for all players and will definitley make your Golf Life a little bit better.
Cut Golf is a unique company that claims they are the “Best Damn Golf Ball Under $20”. Given the way it performed, it would be hard to beat that statement and that is why it made our Top 5 Golf Balls of 2018. We tested two different balls from Cut. The Cut 3 is a three-piece golf ball that is made for the slower swing speeds who demand maximum performance out of their golf ball. This golf ball does not sacrifice distance for performance. You will have ideal distance off the tee without sacrificing performace around the greens. The Cut 4 is a four-piece golf ball made for the higher swing speeds. Again, with the urethane cover, this ball is designed for high balls speeds and spin without compromising control. The Cut 4 was named to Golf Digest Hot List Silver 2018
Next on the Top 5 Golf Balls of 2018 is the ELIXR from OnCore Golf. The ELIXR is OnCore’s most advanced golf ball. It is designed to take the golfer to the next level. This three-piece golf ball provides amazing distance off the tee, control with the long irons and spin and feel on and around the green. Of all the top OEM’s on the market, this ball was able to give our host, Colton Little, five more yards on his already long drives. The ball feels incredible off the club face and sounds just as good as well! This golf ball was also named to Golf Digest Hot List of 2018.
You want to talk about smash factor? The Jet 3 and the Jet 4 are golf balls that give you crazy smash factor numbers and that is why they landed themselves in our Top 5 golf balls of 2018.

Many people know Volvik from their bright colored golf balls, but what you don’t know is these golf balls have incredible performance. The Vivid XT is a four-piece golf ball with a matte finish that will maximize your drives off the tee and create accuracy around the greens. With the Vivid Soft, you are talking huge roll outs off tee shots and the conrol and feel you are looking for around the green! Both golf balls are made with the very modern matte finish. They both feel great and look great on the ground and in the air. Don’t forget, this is what the big hitters of the Long Drive Championships use.
