Since there aren’t near ranges where I live and courses memberships and fees are expensive, I have searched for alternatives.
Found the famous Birdie balls and the Almost Golf Balls and yesterday I came across this new ball: Sci-Core practice ball: here’s a link to a video of them: https://youtu.be/sjVC1mCJEF4
I have to admit they look good at least. They seem to be similar to the Almost Golf Balls.
Has anyone from this forum tried them? Would love to see your reviews and experiences

Who are the seven forum users that the NX9 has locked on for testing?
Full announcement found here.
Testers Wanted (7)
Anyone that has read or better yet tried one of the previous versions of the Precision Pro rangefinders knows a couple things for sure. The company is very customer oriented, responding to any manor of questions promptly and efficiently. It's very first iteration of range finders—nexus- was among the least expensive on the market, but didn't meet with a huge success. Enter the NX7 series, and it's award winning performance in Most Wanted testing, and Precision Pro had a winner on it's hand, a very reliable, accurate rangefinder priced in the $200 to $250 range, with many comprable competitors sellingn for $350 to $450. Precision Pro held it's own in the land of the established icon brands.
So with a product firmly entrenched in the value category, Precision Pro is introducing the next level of rangefinder for company. The NX9 offers an HD display to an already quality product. To find out all the tech behind it, you can read The First Look articles published earlier this spring Precision Pro Nx9 First Look
So we are offering seven US or members from anywhere in the world, the chance to test/review and keep a NX9 HD rangefinder. Golfspy_MPR will be riding shotgun along with the testers on this as you, write a very through review for the forum, and provide ongoing thoughts during the review period in the review thread.
