  1. Agreed, glad I bought the box of 4dz for $105 when they had it!
  2. Today, we are here to honor a thread unlike any other on MGS. This thread made us laugh... cry... pull our hair out in frustration trying to tease out the tiniest of differences between golf balls (Greg). But most of all, this thread was a super entertaining offseason journey. We came as golfing strangers and leave as better informed golfers and friends. I would like to thank @Thin2win for volunteering to hit thousands of golf shots and posting it online for us, even on Thanksgiving. I would also like to thank.... wait...
  3. This was great to follow along during the "offseason" and more than happy to help contribute to your testing! Obviously everyone is different but it was pretty eye opening to see really similar performance in the balls above with your consistency. Very kind to send a sample platter, look forward to doing some of my own testing with much less consistency haha
  4. Interesting, I usually play Srixon XVs and Maxfli Tours on sims and they usually last a long time before showing signs of deteriorating

    Kirkland v2

    Interesting that he saw low spin on driver, these are typically the highest spinning urethane balls and have been holding them back on driver distance in the past. Think that they are a great value for the $ for those looking for a deal but don’t think this video convinced me they are on the same level as others yet.

    Best wind ball?

    Will echo that Left Dot is the best ball I have ever hit in the wind. Low trajectory was super penetrating, handled into the wind and crosswinds better than any other I have used. Srixon XV and Snell MTB-X have been solid as well
  7. Tour Edge Exotics CBX 3-Wood is in excellent condition. It features a Project X 6.0 HZRDUS 63 gram shaft with a Lamkin Z5 grip. The club has 15 degrees of loft. Very minor scratches on the sole and face but otherwise club is in excellent condition and performs like new. Headcover included but is not the original. $110 shipped.
  8. Hey, thanks everyone! And to those wondering, I am a sp0rtsfan(86). Won’t get to use them outside of a sim for a couple months but wanted to share my birthday gifts from “my wife” to me!

    Breaking News

    Really curious which two ball manufacturers have expressed that they are unable to take on new business at the moment... Would certainly put money on Foremost being one of them.

    LEFT DOT!!

    It sounds like that its up in the air whether they make a "full" release this year or next year. Tony hinted at this in a recent article (can't remember which one, it was within the last two weeks). My guess is that they keep doing some of these releases throughout the year and have a permanent release in '23 when they do the ball refresh
  11. Probably out there but going to go out on a limb Red- MTB Black Green- MTB X Blue- TP5x
  12. Okay, I know this is an old thread/comment but you made me go down the rabbit hole of finding a gag Phillips commercial from 2006 promoting "Quintippio- the new 15 bladed razor!" lmfao
  13. I have the same irons and gapping, the there is ~16yd distance gap between PW and GW. Over the past season there were only 2 real instances where I found myself directly between clubs and had to make a tougher decision.
  14. Have seen their advertising as well, they are definitely targeting a certain demo and are annoying at least to me. I don't think they are a scam but I would be surprised if they weren't a tier below in quality as they don't make their own equipment but contract it out. Obviously other places do it too and I don't have personal experience with them, but that has been typical of newer companies coming into the golf space.
  15. Agreed on this, Vice Pro Soft and Callaway Chromesoft are probably the softest golf balls that I would legitimately game as all the other lower compression balls don't check a box that I need from a ball.
  16. I understand that for sure and agree. I have only purchased a few dozen mint balls and did not notice any difference from new however, they were from a homeowner on a golf course. Golf balls have gotten good enough that you can find a ball that is $25-40/dz with the same properties as a $50/dz ball, only difference is branding and maybe a slight QC bump. The price of the ones you are using new is probably only $5/dz more than mint/near mint ProV1s and you know they are new. Unless you are losing more than 3-4/rd I think what you're doing right now is the way to go. Otherwise, you could order a dz mint of Snell/Maxfli/Vice to try vs what you are using and if that would be another way to save? I think most of those sites offer deals regularly too
  17. I wouldn't consider balls that have spent more than a few hours submerged in water, mint or near mint. It would be interesting to see the degree that water logging affects ball performance, however I am sure that it varies by model as well. It seems general consensus that balls submerged more that 12 hours will have performance affected.
  18. I would echo the Z Star and RX as primary recommendations, similar compression as AVX and with your SS you should see similar spin numbers and maybe a tad more distance (~5yds). If those aren't for you I would look at the Titleist Tour Speed or current Chromesoft (they maybe redesigning for next year, someone correct me if I'm wrong?), you would likely see a bit of distance benefit, similar spin and compression as well.
  19. I noted but I was looking at the grouping for the Pro V1, it does look a tiny bit tighter than the other two. Could just be swing like Chris said but I think I like that grouping a bit more than the std dev on spin #s!
  20. Agreed on the classic look of Titleist, I like Srixon's, Vice's and Bridgestone's a lot as well, Bridgestone may be my favorite logo. Callaway, Taylormade are just okay. I actually really dislike Snell's although I love the ball- I wish they would redesign, shrink or just go to a single "S" logo like Bridgestone. I think Maxfli looks a bit dated and could use a refresh too.
  21. I'm stealing the winter pocket technique from you Greg my guess is that there probably isn't much to expansion and contraction unless its more extreme temps and happening a number of times. I would love to see data on ball flight with those variables as well!
  22. Sounds good to me! K eep I ncreasing S pecialty Club S tockpile
