THE ONE AND ONLY KIRKLAND SIGNATURE BALL THREAD


Recommended Posts

Do you think they will drop the Callaway and Titleist lines they have been selling?

 

 

That's the big question.  I think with how quickly the Kirklands have taken off I can see them dropping the others, but only if they can get enough stock to keep their stores supplied.

This. Depends on supply more than anything else.

I have never seen Titleist at Costco, but that does not mean much. I have seen Callaway, and I am pretty sure they will not be renewing that ball.

Who knows. Maybe the solution to slow play has been a $15/dozen tour ball all along!!

As a follow up to a post I made yesterday regarding the packaging of the MG Tour C4 I thought I'd add a few of pictures. As you can see the MG balls are packaged in a slightly smaller box. It's flimsy and lightweight.  Notice also that the MG's are not individually packaged in sleeves like most balls including the Kirkland. On the back of both boxes there is much info about the ball design - features. The back of Kirkland box also lists various Costco international import and distributor locations. Along the bottom in bold it reads Made In Korea. The MG box has no info about origin but only the company contact info for MG Golf in Irving, TX. 

 

As far as overall play-ability of a poured (Titleist-more expensive) vs a TPU (Kirkland-MG cheaper) urethane cover I don't think I can tell the difference. Can you?

I can't tell... Someone at my local course plays the mg c4, and they lose a lot of balls! I can interchange them with the prov1's and not notice a change. If I ever have to buy balls, the mg c4 would be my ball.

I kinda get the package of the MG ball. Guessing it is a cost effective way to go. How much is saved, I have no clue.

Hell, when I did the direct to consumer ball test, the dozen Lightening balls came in a ziplock bag.

 

My favorite packaging was always the 3UP velvet bags, so many reusable uses. I keep my mp3 and headphones in one and the list goes on.

I agree - if they just came in a drawstring bag, I might buy new balls. I use those sort of bags for everything.

 

Little cardboard boxes inside of bigger cardboard boxes? Not so much... ;)

It would be good to hear from more MG Golf C4 users ,,,,, that would be an interesting comparison I would like to see.

 

I'm a MG C4 user. In fact I played one on the front 9 today until I pumped it OB for some stupid reason! (switched to a Ksig on the back) The conditions today were very windy and the ball played just fine in all measures. Honestly I think the MG feels just a bit better off my putter than the Ksig. The Ksig is slightly longer all around. Approaches and performance around the green are identical to me with either ball.

Currently I'm mostly playing the Ksig because I get 8-10 ---12? more yards with the driver. Irons 5-8 yards.

I agree. These types of articles, etc. are all over the place these days. I wonder what all the Big Boys have said (demand) to their Tour Pro players regarding the Ksig? You know some of the Pros have tried them out. One of these guys (Tour Pro) will speak out eventually. Who will it be? I can perhaps see one of them actually put one in play during a tournament. Will it happen?  When will it happen?

Earthquake.

... I just don't see it happening Plaid. Costco isn't about to put 6 dozen in a pro's locker before a tournament. Isn't about to pay a tee up bonus. And isn't gonna sign anyone to a contract. And the way the KS has sold out I imagine Costco could't care less about anyone playing their ball other than their customers with memberships.

I agree. No tournament play. ?  My thought was not that Costco would be working this but some "rogue" Tour Pro. But these young guys can't help themselves from posting stuff on social media. I can defiantly see one of these guys/pros posting a pic or a vid of themselves talking about and playing a Ksig when they are at home with their buddies. Who will that be? Your guess would be as good as mine. John Daly? He's Rogue.

It will happen? I'd like to see it. Is money everything to these guys? Probably.

This reselling stuff is INSANE!! People are paying $70 + $10 shipping for 2 dozen ball on eBay.

I know they're sold out everywhere, but they are paying Pro V1 prices.

MyGolfSpy conundrum: tell the truth about golf equipment so people have the ability to not be sheep.

Test a $1.25 ball that rates equally, if not better in some ways, than the #1 most popular $4+ "Tour" ball

People go stupid and start buying $1.25 ball for 300% more on secondary market.

Are they now sheep ....again?
