The Nike RZN Tour Black golf ball is a perfect choice for players who want maximum distance but don’t want to sacrifice short game control.
The RZN Tour Black feels very similar to the RZN Platinum, but there is a difference if you’re paying attention. Off the putter, both balls have a “click” at impact, but the sound of the RZN Black is slightly higher pitched leading to a firmer feel. Similarly, the RZN Black is slightly louder and firmer feeling off the long clubs.
Making your long game longer is exactly what the RZN Tour Black is designed for, and it will do just that. This ball is as low spin off the driver as any ball that I’ve tested, both on the course and on the launch monitor. That low spin is also seen in the iron game. There’s enough spin to stop an approach that has good trajectory, but the ball flight never balloons in the wind. Even on a gusty day in Florida, I was able to trust that good shots would hold their line and fly their full distance.
While I certainly can’t move the ball out there like Nike’s big hitters, I still love the RZN Tour Black golf ball. I love the strong trajectory in the long game and the fact that I don’t have to give up much stopping power in the short game. If you need to drop some spin to eke out some more yardage off the tee, the RZN Black is a must-try.
