  1. The ProVison-a1 ball in Gel White had the Blue markings,,,,, I forgot I had included you in on my trial,,, here is the Super Yellow v1.01 ,,,, What about these new Forktee's....really handy with the International SpeedGolf group,,,
  2. It would be good to hear from more MG Golf C4 users ,,,,, that would be an interesting comparison I would like to see.
  3. Why isn't there more players testing the C4 version balls,,,I think they feel a bit softer than the Costco balls,,,,and do the same thing? Wouldn't it make sense to test Costco vs these seeing these are supplied by a golf company that did break the mould in regards to pricing for premium spin balls and could do with some support intead of a really large corporation that has received an obscene amount of free media when the only real story was they were " US$4.95 cheaper than MG per dozen!" Costco being 4 piece is not an advantage ,,,, Titleist for 16 years have said they can do ev
  4. This is how the 2017 "ProVision-a1 " - FlexiGel U (TPU) Cover White and PInky should look ,,,, Ball markings? not sure yet.
  5. Hi PM,,, no not yet that was to dial in the whitness I am wanting to achieve,,, the urethane version that glows will only be arriving for my testing next week,, I hope! What i have liked to understand this past week was that Costco will probably just run the one painted white ball,,,,, and as you know that doesn't really excite me in any case,,,, once you go really bright its hard to go back.
  6. Hi Foz,,, I'm working with my team on a UVEE PINKY version for mid 2017,,,,, like this but playable in daylight and with feel,,,,,,let me look for the prototype images,,
  7. This is one of the reasons the Costco was cheaper to make as the normal cast process is slower and as such more expensive ,,,like this Titleist cover being poured here ,,, Costco is a TPU injected approach and they feel and sound different,,,, what is the difference worth to a retail amateur player ,,,, not as much as it used to.
  8. Talking to Nassau they have gone quickly from having spare production capacity to being maxed out but they are going to also increase their production ability in 2017 ,,, approx 100,000 dozen a month is going to Costco (info from a Korean market source)
  9. Do you think they will drop the Callaway and Titleist (HVC or HP model I thought?) lines they have been selling?
  10. I would think this new Costco ball and the others to follow will absolutely flatten the used/lake and more importantly refinished golf ball companies ,,,,, Costco will probably add a good quality 2 piece or 3 piece Surlyn model for 2 dozen at $19.95 next,,,,,,, Why play used ,,,,, they wont even be worth fishing out of the dams,,,, in Australia we have described this type of cheap retail pricing over the past 8 years by many ball companies as supplying balls at a cost that the recreational players dont care about losing them any more,,, they buy balls to lose which used to be used ones
  11. Last year when I took my father to visit some of the ball companies in Korea during the Presidents Cup the Grand Hyatt at Incheon was using the Genesis for their hotel limo service ,,,, I was impressed and yes youare right some people just want to buy the prestige and believe the marketing without any questions ,,,, They support certain brands like they support their favorite football team, with a heart felt passion ,,,
  12. Probably but for more + shipping or on Ebay ,,, here's the thing Costco knew there would be a potential large take up of this product BUT you would have to join their membership group and pay for it to get the best deals,,,, they make as much money from memberships as they do from sales so their reason for smashing the price is a bit clearer when they have two possible income streams from this exercise ,,,,, Smart marketing plus $100,000's of free media attention to drive it. Will they ever advertise within the golf industry media ,,, I doubt it they will probably just do the token
  13. Hi OH, I see a group of the boys have now moved over ,,, thanks for the kind words 2016 has been exciting and now interesting. Great question ,,,,, Dick's / Golf Galaxy did a smart thing a while ago they bought the Maxfli brand for in house use and then added the Top-Flite / Strata brand ,,,,, they had seen what you could do by having legitimate golf brands with long term heritage ( both had gone broke mind you) so players would TRUST these products without much advertising or promotion that they sold under these brand names as being consistent with their well known heritage and as such
  14. Hi PJ,,, the latest MGC4 ball is probably very close but not from the same plant,,, do you mind posting where they are made ,, it should be some where on the latest MG ball packs as the 332 dimple may be a US factory? but I would not have thought so. The MG balls were the beginning of all this as they got to buy a premium performance ball without having to do the expense of developing one,,,,, I still don't know for sure why they did not have the same free media as the Kirkland,,, they were less the half the price and played fine. Cheers, Boz
