    Are certain balls more affected by wind than others? I am noticing my aiming point for when I used a level 87 titleist....if I use same aiming style for the level 33 callaway it’s getting blown A lot more offline than the 87 ball would.

    Without question, yes. The best way I can illustrate it is by pointing out the major difference between TMs and Titleists-the TMs play like cotton where the Titleists play like a weighted ball. I play that 87T.

    I played the TMs for a month when they first came out then  switched to the Titleist to see the difference. It only took 1 ball to see it-they flew true where those TMs would get knocked about, mostly down. IDK about those Callaways but I suspect they're in the same class as the TMs.

    I think the only difference is the spin rating of various balls.  Higher spin balls impacted more by the wind, especially if you add backspin to the shot which results in an even higher ball flight (more time in the air to be exposed to the wind).
