THE ONE AND ONLY KIRKLAND SIGNATURE BALL THREAD

Recommended Posts

Where's the "unfriend" button :-)

 

I paid $38.99. For 1 dozen. I know. Stupid. But I had to have them.

Ironically we weren't friends on here lol

 

I added you though so tough cookies! :lol:

Oh no doubt play them if you bought them for normal price.

 

Buying them second hand on ebay for more than $20 a dozen is absurd when you can get awesome tour balls for under $30 a dozen

 

Bridgestone B330 for $28 per dozen

Purchased direct from Costco.  So after tax and shipping I'm around $17.50 per dozen.  

 

If I don't play these i would go back to the Snell MTB.  I buy the 6 dozen value packs and it works out to about $26.50 or so a dozen.

Yup, can't beat that price

 

Snell is what I played in 2016. I got 6 dozen Bridgestone B330S balls for $25 on ebay so that's what I'll be gaming in 2017.

 

I cannot imagine ever paying more than $35 for a dozen balls and I've always played Srixon, Bridgestone, TM or Snell balls.

I had a friend of mine from Florida send me a sleeve. I played 27 holes last weekend with the same ball. Man those things are as hot as a firecracker off of every club! No joke. On average with all clubs 8 to 10 yards longer. They come off the face hot too. I even tried a few shots Sunday afternoon wit a vintage set of Mac irons and they were even hot off of them. Yesterday afternoon I got off of work early and went out to practice some chipping and putting. I even took my old Mac VIPs that I have played on and off since 1990. They were hot off the PW and 9 iron around the green. On putting they also jumped off the face and had a little wobble to them. then I discovered the seam on the alignment mark. Normally I do not use the alignment arrows on the sides of balls but I tried it on them. They did roll better like that but still hot. I even putted them with an older Cleveland 8802 style putter and they were still hot.

In conclusion for me if they will be rapidly available in the future I may practice them more and get used to them but from what I am reading they very well may not be. IMHO I think the ball may not be legal. I know supposedly samples were submitted to the USGA but I wonder if the test balls and actual balls were the same thing. I also wonder if they were over runs like was stated in various articles if they were over runs due to being non conforming to begin with? Stranger things have happened (remember Wilson?)  They were introduced as a low cost weekend golfer ball to begin with never intended for the better golfer in comp play. No one envisioned the hype until the MGS article (good job staff). I am not the only one privately that thinks they may be non-conforming. My buddy in Florida who has a pretty good background in the golf business himself thinks the same thing because he is getting the same results that I am. And you long time members know I am not talking out my rear. You know how precise I test stuff before forming an opinion. Right now I am going to save my sleeve because I still have all 3 balls. One does have 27 holes of play on it and the other 2 have only been chipped and putted with

 

In all honesty trust me I would not have said this on WRX because i would have went down in flames. Here I feel confident in stating my opinion because even if some disagree with my opinion I will not get flamed. I may be totally in left field on this. It will be interesting if they get the Kirkland ball back if they hit like these do. One of the reasons I am saving mine. As always I am well open to all opinions on this

Big Stu, thats why they are so popular. If they were a so so ball nobody would give a rats ass. i would like to find out what Taylormade ball it was supposed to be, so I could still play them.

Like I said before it makes my 917 driver very long!!!

The TM lethal is a 5 layer ball but I dont know what ball TM got Nassau to make.

I know in the UK its the Quattro but whats the TM name?

Someone stated that Nassau makes the TaylorMade Tour Preferred and Project (a) balls.  The TP is a 4-piece ball like the Ksig.  I have no idea if it is the same ball or plays similar.

I hate to say, "I told you so", but, I told you so in other threads.  I knew that this had to be too good to be true.  I'm sure that the ball was everything that everyone said.  Having written that Golf is my one stress release - I love the game and try to gain any edge that I'm able.  Picking up a couple of dozen balls that I like, using them for half the season and then never playing them again is not my idea of an edge. 

 

We won't see this ball at this price again.  It would be neat to find out the full story though. :)

There could be another 4pc urethane ball at a VERY similar price on the horizon...  

 

That is all I can say for now..

At shareholders meeting yesterday it was one of the topics CEO discussed. He hopes to work out issues with supplier and bring them back. Which means they must be working directly with Nassau will be interesting to see how it plays out.

With Costco Signature brand on the line, if not the same ball, it should have very similar specs.
