Two-piece golf balls are limited in their ability to deliver the same performance benefits of tour-level offerings. However, as material mixtures continue to improve, golf ball offerings like the AVANT are getting dangerously close. The AVANT golf ball offers exceptional performance at a price point that rivals anything else available. Golfers that have opted for alternatives to the highest price, tour-level offerings need to be testing the AVANT to see for themselves its well-balanced performance profile and exceptionally soft feel.

Description

Golfing is expensive and losing golf balls suck. Selecting to play a golf ball that gives you great performance at a great price can help not only your game on the course but your feelings after your rounds if you tend to leave a golf ball or 10 behind as you pull away. OnCore specializes in creating golf balls offering premium performance at a fantastic price. The ELIXR golf ball from OnCore did exceptionally well in our previous test and the AVANT is next up. Can this golf ball that is available for less than half of premium offerings keep pace in terms of performance?

Key Features

  • The AVANT is super soft thanks to a compression rating of 55 making it a pleasure to hit.
  • OnCore AVANT golf balls are available in three color options: white, green, and yellow.
  • The AVANT is a two-piece golf ball wrapped in a soft Surlyn material.

AVANT Detailed Review

Design and Technology

AVANT golf balls feature a two-piece construction with a large inner core and Surlyn cover. The larger core of the AVANT golf ball creates more perimeter weighting in the golf ball to help stabilize its flight and help players hit longer, straighter golf shots. Lower compression ratings of the AVANT can help players with slow or medium swing speeds gain distance in some clubs.

Our Experience

The AVANT is a well-constructed two-piece golf ball. The ability to deliver a somewhat diverse spin profile in such a small price is impressive. The AVANT excels in terms of feel for players that prefer a soft golf ball. The AVANT offers a nice blend of short game control and distance that impresses both off the tee and from the fairways. That being said, the AVANT is still a two-piece golf ball. Two-piece golf balls struggle to compete in terms of performance with tour-level offerings especially at high swing speeds. While the AVANT is very impressive for a golf ball with only two layers, players seeking tour-level performance will be better suited to ELIXR style offerings.

PROS
  • The AVANT’s large core helps add perimeter weighting to the golf ball and stabilizes its flight for players that struggle with excessive curving golf shots.
  • OneCore’s bulk pricing model allows for players to purchase golf balls at a reduced price and continue to play the same ball round after round.
  • The AVANT can be ordered in white, yellow, and matter green colors for year-round golf.
CONS
  • Two-piece golf balls including the AVANT do not offer as many performance advantages as tour-level offerings such as the OnCore ELIXR.
  • OnCore golf balls including the AVANT are only available online and cannot be demoed or tested before being purchased.
  • The matte green golf balls seem to perform inferiorly to the white and yellow offerings.

Specs

The OnCore AVANT golf ball is available online and can be purchased in bulk packs to help reduce prices even further. All three color options, white, green, and yellow, can be ordered in set of three or more for the lowest prices. The white and yellow golf balls feature a gloss coating while the green AVANT is standard in a matte finish. Each ball is designed with two-pieces, a 392 dimple pattern, and a soft Surlyn cover.

Conclusion

Two-piece golf balls have their place for many golfers. The AVANT is impressive in both performance and cost. The color options will help golfers fit their style year-round and bulk pricing options can be extremely valuable for many players. In total OnCore is a company that continues to impress in terms of their product quality and ability to deliver on their claims of performance in each category. The AVANT is a well-built, two-piece golf ball that can offer better performance than most in its space. Tour-level golf balls such as the ELIXR or ProV1 will offer players more performance but if you continue to see your golf balls leaving your golf ball too quickly to justify the higher prices, the AVANT is perfect.

How Does the AVANT Compare?

Snell GET SUM

The GET SUM is a two-piece golf ball offering from Snell Golf. One of the breakthrough companies in direct-to-consumer golf ball sales, Snell offers the GET SUM for even less than their MTB-Black and MTB-X golf balls. For those players still not convinced that a tour-level golf ball is for them, the GET SUM is a fantastic option.

Titleist TourSoft

The TourSoft is the newest two layer golf ball from Titleist. Infused with a larger core, the TourSoft offers a more diverse spin profile and added distance. Titleist continues to push the boundaries of golf ball performance and the TourSoft demands some attention in the two-piece space.

OnCore ELIXR

The ELIXR is a tour-level golf ball that offers premium performance at a budget price point. Golfers that know they want to play their best but do not want to pay top dollar for golf balls now can get both with the ELIXR and the bulk price options from OnCore Golf. For those considering moving to a cheaper golf ball, the ELIXR is difficult to beat in terms of dollar-for-dollar performance.
