The Story of MTB-X

Feedback from our MTB Red:

Early 2018 we launched two Golf Balls (MTB Black & MTB Red). After launch we began receiving feedback about performance characteristics in the MTB Red that could be improved upon.

Feedback we gathered:

  • Cover Material and Paint Systems differed from the MTB Black.
  • Some found loss of distance with Driver in comparison to MTB Black.
  • Due to higher spin rates, some thought MTB Red “Ballooned” into the wind.

Dean and the Team decided it was time to make some upgrades!

Introducing MTB-X (Faster & Longer)

The NEW MTB-X features an updated 3-piece construction to further improve performance and feedback on all shots. Composed of a thicker mantle layer and smaller core the MTB-X will offer you a firmer feel and more spin control on mid-irons and approach shots. All while lowering spin and increasing distance off the driver. The soft cast urethane cover technology provides excellent durability and soft feel on short irons and around the green.

 

 

Is MTB-X the ball for you?

Of course, all suggestion should be determined based off of which characteristics you like in a Golf Ball. See MTB-X Characteristics listed below:

  • 3 Piece
  • 360 Dimple Pattern
  • Cast Urethane Cover
  • Compression 85-90
  • Firm Feel
  • HIGH Iron Spin
  • LOW Driver Spin
  • Low Flight
  • Very long off the Driver

If I liked MTB Red, Will I like the performance of MTB-X?

Played 3 rounds with the MTB-X, all in different conditions (Hot, Warm high elevation, Cool and very windy low level): I immediately loved the ball. Very good driver distance, pleasant feel of the irons, good distance control of the wedges and control/feel of the putter. In the wind the ball stayed on line and was predicable to play in these conditions I’ve played the MTB-Black last season (was already happy) and I feel this bal is even better for me.

I having been playing the MTB black for a year and half – great ball – really consistent performance. Thought I would try the MTB-X – well I am not sure what all was done to create the MTB-X or why but bravo – well done. This ball flies off the driver – further than the Black ball and great distance and feel off the irons. Thanks for a great product and great service. 9 handicap – 105 mph driver swing speed

I finally was able to play MTB-X. They are now the only golf ball I will play. Played my home course today 9 holes only(started down pouring holeing out at the 9th arghhh),Played from the Back Tees-1st hole a straight 335 yards just in the rough 47 yards to the middle. Ok maybe that was a fluke. 2nd hole 373 bang straight down the middle 101 left. Longest drive 9th 395 right fairway with 87 left. Ok so its long off the tee so.. 3rd hole 155 to middle with carry over water. 8 iron I went a little long( a little thin) still on green with the spin. 7th hole pin up front 192.. went right with 5 iron missed green. High pitch about 4 feet left (about an inch from the pitch mark). So I gained an average about 10-15 yards but with spin i really wanted. I highly recommend.

I tried the old test pack in early 2018. I like the MTB Reds for it’s explosiveness off my driver and the dart throwing accuracy with my irons. The blacks have more of a tour type flight. With a 9.5 degree driver, it was had to gain altitude. The first time I played a round with reds, I knocked 8 strokes off my score and broke the 80"s. If these MTB-X balls are better, can’t wait. I got to use up my reds first. PS; I out my friends titleist balls all the time. :-)
