Ball Guide

Using the right balls is every bit as important as using the right clubs in Golf Clash. Using special balls too early will put you at a disadvantage later in the game, and using a ball with the wrong attributes will not only waste a ball that could be useful, but can also put you at a disadvantage for that hole. Learning these points of the game can give you an advantage and help save you some pain and aggravation.

Starting the game, you won't need to use any special balls. Let's repeat: "I will NOT use special balls before I hit Tour 5". Even then, being the Golf Clash God that you are, you can probably continue using basic balls through Tours 5 & 6. At most, you can use a Marlin here and there to deaden a head wind or get a little spin with a low level Extra Mile which lacks curl. This is the time to build a reserve of special balls that you will definitely need when you get to the higher tours.

It's fairly common to see Quasars and Navigators on Tour 7+ and that's the first time you should be using them. By that point, your free, pin and 1 vs. 1 chests will cover the cost of them in the shop. Only in the most extreme circumstances should you consider breaking out a Katana or Titan. You're much better off saving those for higher tours and tournaments.

Speaking of tournaments, that is the absolute best way to build the stockpile of balls that you'll need. Finishing in the top 10 or 25 in a couple tournaments will get you well on your way to where you can use the balls you've won to win more (and better) balls in the future.

Individual Ball Details

Bandera

Bandera

Wind Resistance 5 Side Spin 2 Power 1
This ball was avaiable for purchase during the Cinco de Mayo tournament. Same stats as an Eye Ball, so pull this wind resistance ball out on Par 3s. It will absolutely give you a great chance at leaving the ball hanging on the rim of the cup.
Basic

Basic

If it's free, it's for me! This is the ball you should be using for at least the first 4 tours and ideally until Tour 7 unless you're really running into problems. With the basic ball, what you see is what you get, and that's not much but we love it because it's simple, reliable and always willing to be our friend in spite of how bad we played in the Christmas tournament.
Bauble

Bauble

Wind Resistance 5 Side Spin 1 Power 2
Another ball that works really well for Par 3's. It was part of a winter time cash package and also awarded during the Winter Links tournament. The key stat is obviously the wind resistance but the bump in power is nice for longer par 3's where you want to use a long iron instead of a wood. And most importantly, the animation looks awesome as it screams through the air and plugs into that greenside bunker.
Berserker

Berserker

Wind Resistance 1 Side Spin 2 Power 5
This beast is tailor made for long par 4's and 5's with a tail wind. It can absolutely turn birdies into easy eagles, and eagles into chip in albotrosses. Unfortunately, you'll only find them in large quantities as prizes in Masters tournaments or part of expensive Black Friday cash offers. On the bright side, they show up as prizes in the Golden shot from time to time.
BlueMarble

Blue Marble

Wind Resistance 1 Side Spin 3 Power 4
This ball was available during the Earth Day tournament as part of a cash package. It's a bit of a nerfed Berserker but still useful in tailwaind situations. If you look closely, you can see some of the clouds moving on the ball. Do you see it? Good! Now you've wasted a good 5 seconds that you could've used to hit a quality golf shot.
Bunny

Bunny

Wind Resistance 4 Side Spin 1 Power 3
This ball was available during the Easter Links tournament as part of a cash package. It boasts the same stats as the Mummy ball so it's best used in a stiff headwind to get your moneys worth. Pull it out in the tournament on a par 3 and watch as it hops into the hole. Not the regulation hole, the shootout hole. Because you need a little more aggravation in your life.
Dead

Dead

Wind Resistance 3 Side Spin 2 Power 4
Arguably the best general purpose ball in the game. It was awarded to Pro, Expert and Masters top finishers in the Creepy Cliffs tournament. It ticks all the right boxes and doesn't have any real weaknesses (except the lag on your phone that pushes it into the drink). Happy hunting with this bad boy.
Easter

Easter

Wind Resistance 2 Side Spin 3 Power 2
This is a reskinned Katana so it's a pretty decent ball that you should probably save for situational holes where side spin is a must. Despite it's egg like appearance, it doesn't crack as easily as you do on the last hole of a tournament with a 15 foot putt to bring home the gold.
Eye

Eye

Wind Resistance 5 Side Spin 2 Power 1
A ball from the Haunted Hills tournament with maxed wind resistance that you should primarily use on par 3's. Just a small bump of side spin means you'll need to use it with the right club since you won't be able to stretch a long iron into a hole built for a wood. And after you miss that wide open green with a Marlin come tournament time, I'll be waiting to tell you "Eye told you so".
Golden

Golden

Side Spin 2 Power 1
This is the ball you'll be forced to use during the Golden shot mini-game that pops up every few weeks. And it will become your favorite excuse when your shot stops 0.01 yards short of the outside ring.
Katana

Katana

Wind Resistance 2 Side Spin 3 Power 2
A pretty good ball but if you find yourself looking to buy some upper tier balls from the shop, you're better off going with Titans than Katanas. You'll almost always wish you had the extra power the Titan provides and rarely need the extra spin you get with the Katana. You'll also probably wish your opponent would hit the edge of the fringe and fly into a lake so they don't hand you your 4th straight loss.
KingMaker

King Maker

Wind Resistance 3 Side Spin 3 Power 3
One of the best balls in the game, and also the most expensive in terms of gems. Many tournaments will give them out in Pro, Expert and Masters (at least to those who finish close to the top) but you'll also get one every once in a while in a chest. They're way to expensive to use gems on in the shop though. You're best off stashing these until you hit the upper tours (10, 11) and higher level tournaments. Until then you can watch it spin in the shop while it taunts you about how you don't deserve it.
LaborDay

Labor Day

Wind Resistance 3 Side Spin 1 Power 3
This was part of a cash package offer during the Labor Day tournament. It's a very capable ball that excels in head winds and also excels at judging your 'Great' chip as it lips out of the cup.
Marlin

Marlin

Wind Resistance 1 Side Spin 1
This is a dirt cheap ball that you may want to break out in Tours 5 and 6 if you run into a vicious losing streak and need a leg up or if you're facing a stiff headwind that will make it impossible to reach the green in 2. The side spin it gives you can also be the difference on the Tour 6 Southern Pines shootouts when you're working with a driver that lacks curl (e.g. EM5). You'll typically see Oprah shelling these things out in pin chests like they were cars.
Movie

Movie

Wind Resistance 4 Side Spin 3 Power 2
Part of a cash package during the Hollywood tournament, this one is best used against some headwind or a decent option for a tournament par 3 if you're out of level 5 wind wind resistance balls. Lights...camera...FRINGE GLITCH!!
Mummy

Mummy

Wind Resistance 4 Side Spin 1 Power 3
A really great ball that is perfect for head wind situations. It was awarded at the Rookie level during the Creepy Cliffs tournament and part of a cash package around the same time. Good for just about any situation, but you won't be able to take advantage of any tail wind, just like you couldn't take advantage of the sliced drive your opponent hit last game.
Patriot

Patriot

Wind Resistance 3 Side Spin 1 Power 3
This was part a cash package during the 4th of July tournament. It's identical to the Labor Day ball, which is enough to say it's a really good ball if you have it, and more than enough of an advantage for your opponent to put you down.
PotOGold

Pot O Gold

Wind Resistance 3 Side Spin 3 Power 2
This is pretty much a dressed up Katana with a bump in wind resistance. So while it's nothing to write home about, it will definitely bring enough luck for your opponent to put their shot inside of yours on the shootout and make you run for that 3 stake special.
Pumpkin

Pumpkin

Wind Resistance 3 Side Spin 3 Power 3
This is a reskinned King Maker which makes it a really good ball for pretty much any situation. It was awarded to Pro, Expert and Masters top finishers in the Haunted Hills tournament. When your opponent breaks one out, it's just another reminder of how much better they did in that tournament than you.
Quasar

Quasar

Wind Resistance 1 Side Spin 2 Power 1
This is a ball that you can fund with your daily flow of gems from your chests once you get to the Tour 7 area. It's a similar ball to the Navigator and is usually the other option you can use on those early Pro Series tours depending on what the wind is doing. If you've got tail wind and it's a long hole, Quasar is often a better choice than the Navigator. It just swaps wind resistance for side spin. Now swap out your sloth-like reflexes and you'll be all set!
Royal

Royal

Wind Resistance 3 Side Spin 2 Power 4
Long live the King! Playdemic decided to bring back the Dead Ball reincarnate and give you a fighting chance against the competition. Hopefully you stocked up on this one during the Royal Open and dropped a little dough on the cash offer. If not don't worry, it probably wouldn't have done you much good anyway...
Santa

Santa

Wind Resistance 5 Side Spin 3
Just your run of the mill, maxed out wind resistance ball that was awarded to top Rookie finishers during the Christmas tournament, and showed up as a prize for the Golden Shot around that time. Aside from the wind resistance, not a lot to get excited about...kind of like your short game.
SnowGlobe

Snow Globe

Side Spin 3 Power 5
Reminiscent of a runaway train, it's a similar animal as the Berserker, minus the wind resistance, because wind resistance is for suckers. This will most definitely set some new long drive records, but I'm getting popcorn for the show coming in your ensuing shootout when you get stuck with a 25 MPH side wind.
Snowman

Snowman

Wind Resistance 2 Side Spin 3 Power 4
This was the Pro, Expert and Masters ball prize in the Winter Links tournament. It's got a simliar spirit as the Berserker but tamed down a bit which makes it perfect for people like yourself who can't control their drives. You'll ideally play this one on holes with the wind behind you.
Titan

Titan

Wind Resistance 2 Side Spin 2 Power 3
This is a great ball to have in large quantity for higher tours (think 9, 10, 11) and tournaments when every shot counts. They're often awarded to top Rookie finishers in tournaments. The extra power makes a lot of challenging holes from the back tees much easier to handle and while they're expensive, you can occasionally get some in the shop if you manage your gems. In a perfect world, you'll load up on these from your first few Rookie tournaments and ride them all way to rock bottom during your next full tilt clash session.
Touchdown

Touchdown

Wind Resistance 1 Side Spin 3 Power 3
These were part of a cash package around September of 2017 as well as the Touchdown tournament in early 2018. It's built for tailwind situations when you don't have a Berserker to spare. If you still have one, save it for tournaments so you can miss the weekend round by 1 stroke instead of 2.
Turkey

Turkey

Wind Resistance 5 Side Spin 1 Power 2
Same stats as the Bauble, these were available in a cash package during the Thanksgiving tournament. Another max wind resistance ball that are really handy to have in supply come tournament time. They can really ease the pain of that bogey you pulled out of your hat on the last par 5.
