  1. They look awesome Wayne. I still have a load but then I haven't had the opportunity to lose any much this year. The best is when you can see your ball glowing at the bottom of the pond, just out of reach.

    The golf gloves are still the best I have used, they feel great and wear well. I think they have the best "touch" of any I have tried.

    And yes I use the pink balls, the green ones and the yellow, I have no problem playing coloured balls, the arctic white are bright. I can't wait to use some of the new ones.

    Merry Christmas, Wayne and a fruitful new Year. Don't let the Kirklands get you down.

  2. We did cover this way back when this thread started, if you shine a UV light on these balls before use they are great for low light golf, late in the day, dusk, that sort of thing, they retain a glow for quite some time. I was able to play with some of Wayne's prototype balls in addition to the varieties I bought from him. The wear well, play well, and are on a par with any ball out there. The high visibility is what I most liked.

  3. I've used Wayne's hi viz golf balls for a few years now. I've "donated" them to ponds and bushes throughout our golfing area. I love to use them, on a par with any other high end golf balls i have played. I never had problems finding info on the product nor in getting hold them. When I play there is no mistaking which golf balls are mine. It just stands out. Great product. Wayne has been great to work with and his golf gloves are far superior. Check them out. Best wishes with your endeavours Wayne.

  4. Hi Stephen,

     

    We would love to have sweepstakes open to Canadian residents but unfortunately the rules and laws governing sweepstakes and giveaways in Canada are a little tricky (even quebec has its own governing rules it appears).

     

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks

    Thanks for responding. It is a bone of contention for many of us, fortunately there are a number of comps that are open to us. And we thought we had Free Trade!

  5. Funny, isn't it but at the Barclays a number of players hurt themselves with their excessive backspin that took the balls all the way off the green and into the bunker in some cases.

    Frankly if I actually get backspin I watch it in wonder and wonder what I did.

    I want something that is soft around the greens though, and stops after a good flop shot; I don't mind if it gets chewed up by the grooves, they all do.

    Hi Guys, thanks for the input so far,,,,,I am not building ball designs with

    excessive spin as I have my own thoughts on what drop and stop should be for

    most levels of golfers and the higher the partial wedge spin levels the greater the

    chance that distance control is compromised either in the air or on the ground.

     

    Lets see what happens with the Volvik trial MGS are running before I butt in with

    my gear, as it isn't right to chime in at this stage.

     

    Cheers,

    Boz

  6. Get fitted for new clubs, I bet your $1 club is causing problems, I bet the Callaway 3 Wood shaft is too stiff. Can't afford a full set then get fitted for a small selection or even just your 5 or 7 iron, a decent club fitter will watch you swing, offer suggestions for change that is as good as a set of lessons. Works out cheaper too.

  7. I was playing recently, using my Vision balls, Vision golf towel, Vision hat and glove, when a guy asked me about the golf balls I was using, he said that he had found one on the course and used it and liked it, did some research and had sent a note to Boz.

    So, I too am doing Guerrilla Marketing for Boz, in my small way.

    I am still not sure which of the balls I favour but I really like the high viz balls for obvious reasons. I like the way they glow at the bottom of the pond, just out of reach, staring at me.

    Whichever has the softer cover, and I forget which, is best around the greens.

     

     

  8. Nice course choices. Not played Furry Creek. Peace Portal would be a good one also.

    Ooh, just noticed Cove Links. Small challenging course but a good one for visitors? Country Meadows way better and the food is good. If time is tight 9 holes at Crescent Beach Nico Wynd. So many choices. Redwoods is a surprisingly challenging course. For me. Mayfair Lakes in Richmond, Morgan Creek must be the jewel. I lost 16 balls in water there.

     

  9. I played every day after I got laid off. Played all over Vancouver area but still missed lots if courses. Mostly play Richmond these days as my current job is not quite so understanding and tend to notice if I am away too many afternoons. I shall have to stop wearing golf gear to work on those days. The golf glove in my back pocket might give it away. I am tempted with the June thing though.

  10. So, my clubs were stolen from my van. Insurance paid for new clubs, thank you, except for the $1000 deductible!

    My club maker choice was KZG.

    I got Driver - VC420 10.5 deg with 38lb flex Novatech 6000 shaft; Q 3 & 5 fairway woods with Fierce Full Force, 37lb stiff shafts;

    H320 Tour 22 deg hybrid with silver NT 38lb shaft

    5-PW forged cavity back CBIII bent 3 deg upright, with silver 38lb graphite shafts

    Forged TRS 52 and 56 deg wedge, graphite shaft

    Forged Sniper 60 deg with graphite shaft

    Odyssey White Hot putter

    all with Lamkin mid-size grips

    CilcGear bag.

    Not cheap and seriously out of pocket, now I have to play everyday for the rest of my life and hope its a long one to justify expense.

    Nice to to be fitted though.

    So yesterday I went to the range and destroyed the head of the 5 wood, see pics, I think it had a hairline crack anyway, covered by warranty, now I just have to wait, again.

    Fitter was Lionel Newton http://www.newtonsla...om/Welcome.html

    Sorry upload keeps failing for attaching photos, I will edit later

  11. To say that having True Temper and KBS as a sponsor compromises the integrity of the site is way off in my opinion. I have always judged the quality of this site by the honesty of the reviews and forum entries, none of which seems tainted by OEM preference based on sponsorship.

     

    In my opinion the only way having sponsors (even big OEMs) would be a negative was if the content of the Blogs/Reviews changed in a way that was obviously favoring the highest bidder. If the integrity of the review system stays in place, and everyones opinions stay their own, then what is the difference?

     

    I don't believe it is anyone's place to tell you how to operate your site, but I will say that I prefer these reviews and this forum to any others, and have only seen the content and community improve over the years, despite the added sponsors.

    I fully agree! It would not bother me if you accepted advertising from OEMs. Just so they can't corrupt the testing process by "threatening" to withhold advertising in light of negative reviews.

    You do an excellent job, I could not do what you do AND turn away revenue, nor would I so more power to you.
