  1. Think I already asked this, but any thoughts on any of the Volvik balls for me? They are running some sales now as well.
  2. It's not that I believe that I need a Pro V1, it's that I don't know if I should be playing a Pro V1 in regards to what advantage (or disadvantage) I have with that ball. And for those who keep saying "take lessons", please read that I have been taking lessons, that on a regular (public, less challenging) course I am losing about 4 - 6 balls in 18 holes. This 24 was anomaly. And thanks to everyone for their advice. I will continue to play anything I have in the garage until I run out and then I'll look at others, based in part from all the great advice I have been receiving here!
  3. ChuckZ: As I have said, I have been taking lessons and my game has vastly improved. While my drive is on the slower side, I actually hit a bullet straight down the fairway for 230 yds - a BIG number for me. Until I get to the point of being able to play these championship level courses with better control, cost is a factor. As a side note, I played a couple weeks ago and lost maybe 4 - 6 balls over 18 holes on a more forgiving course.
  4. Thank you, everyone, for your input. It confirms my thoughts, which is at this time I really gain nothing with Pro V1's (original or clones) and sticking with the one's I'm playing - and even adding back into my ball rotation the Wilson DUO's, is the best bet until I gain some better control or I win the lottery LOL! My pulling the DUO's out of my bag was because of the very low compression and the recommendation from the driver manufacturer to use a higher compression ball, but maybe that doesn't have to be the case? Anyone interested in buying four dozen brand new Optix Yellow DUO's?
  5. The funny thing is, as this course was killer with HIGH grass, we found lots of Pro V1's that other unfortunate souls like us were losing. My son played the entire day (after the first hole) with Pro V1's he found.
  6. I have several dozen of those, but the driver manufacturer is telling me that playing those 35 compression balls is like hitting marshmallows and I need harder ones (ergo my Srixon's.)
  7. Already responded that I am taking lessons. But Rome wasn't built in a day, and developing a golf game feels like it will take longer than building Rome!
  8. Given my current skill level, should I even be entertaining a Pro V1-like ball? Maybe I need to dial-back my enthusiasm and find something else like the ones I am already playing?
  9. Any thoughts on the Volvik Vimax? They are on sale right now, thought to try them but don't know much about them?
  10. So . . . I AM taking lessons, and I am losing less and less balls by the round, but when I play a really challenging private course like this weekend vs. some of the more forgiving public courses, I've yet to figure out how NOT to put my ball in the high grass/weeds and find those damn things!!! LOL (this was an anomaly)
  11. Thanks, jlukes, but it looks like Snell is still out of product and not shipping anytime soon.
  12. Greetings, fellow Spyers . . . So my game is improving (hit my first 230yd drive on Father's Day!) however my ability to lose a ridiculous amount of golf balls in any given round remains the same! I play red and yellow golf balls so it's easier for me to find and ID mine on the course, and have been playing the Srixon Soft Feel, Bridgestone e6 Soft, and the Taylor Made Soft Response (I am a 59yo "beginner") Played my first Pro V1's this weekend (courtesy of my son-in-law) and was wondering if there was such a thing as the "Poor-Man's" Pro V1 so I can play those and am not throwing a
  13. First name: Marty City & State: North Brunswick, NJ Do you currently walk the majority of your rounds: About 50/50, as the weather here is sometimes unpredictable some days so then I cart it if it looks like rain is a'comin! Do you use a push cart now, if yes which one: No/NONE
  14. This needs to go; make me a reasonable offer for a quick CASH and CARRY deal in NJ.
