The NIke One Platinum is the ball we have been waiting for from Nike.

We liked the Nike One Gold and Nike One Black for different reasons without being convinced by either. However we feel that the Nike One Platinum golf ball has the best bits of each ball.

It has the distance and low trajectory of the Black without the firmness and it has the soft feel around the green of the Gold but with a little less spin.

In our playing test we could not really fault it's performance in any way. The only thing that we could fault it for was when we got the grooves out with the short irons it did mark the cover, but without scuffing it.

The cover seemed to be as good as it was before but the scorch mark was there, which Nike's leading competitor ball does not do.

Best ball from Nike yet, but maybe not enough to make it top dog, but it's right up there.

Slightly disappointed by the Nike One Platinum. I had heard great things about it and felt it didnt really compete with the Pro V1x, I found it hard hitting, which was great off the tee and went a long way. But it kept that hard feel in approach shots and chips. All my chips were running further than I had played for and the contact just felt a little clunky. Not bad overall, and I think it would be a great ball for a mid handicapper, but not the 'One' for me!

I thought the Nike One Platinum golf ball is a great ball and it performaned just as well as my usual Pro V1. The best thing I can say about it is that I didn't notice much of a difference between the two. It performed in almost exactly the same way and even if I did manage to mark it with the odd wedge shot, it was still very playable. Will I be replacing my Pro V1s with it? Probably not as it is still missing that X factor, but definitely has taken over from the Callaway HX Tour and first choice alternative.
