THE ONE AND ONLY KIRKLAND SIGNATURE BALL THREAD

Recommended Posts

With all the attention this ball has had, it will most likely be even more popular if/when it returns.   It's sort off like taking a carrot away from a hungry mule and when you dangle it back over his mouth, you better not have any fingers in the way.    :D

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.

So I should sell all mine now? Sell high, buy low? 😛

I never got my hands on any of the first run. Hope to try these out in the second run.

Want to see if the guys here are as nice as they say they are, (I already know the answer), but I was wondering if someone has a sleeve of these that they are willing to part with?

Found one yesterday in the woods or should I say "In our club's Golf Ball Exchange Program".

We were playing in a scramble and I hit it a few times on those holes where I was not afraid to lose it since there were a few holes where I was the one "To go for it", and we all know how that ends.

With the recent discussion on how much these are going for I think my one ball will be worth $25 so I am taking it out of play, polish it up with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (which by the way does wonders for scuffed balls), and put it on a shelf and let it gain in value. Sort of like BitCoins.

 

Once they come back on the market I have to actually wonder if I will buy them as I have 9 dozen Pro V1's sitting in the garage. For every 1 I lose I find 2 so I never need to buy any.

 

By the way they played nicely and will be well worth purchasing.

Count me as another one that didn't get any of the first run despite having them in my basket and being set-up for quick checkout, transaction just timed out, very frustrating...

I played with one ball today for all 18 holes, and it still looks good.  Performance was great; it beat out my Snell MTB that I've been playing since I got to Phoenix last weekend.

 

I can send you a sleeve.  Just contact me with info.

Thanks Kenny, but Fivesome is sending me a sleeve, I appreciate the offer. It's great to be on a site here where we are willing to do these kinds of things for each other.

Not a problem.  If Costco brings them back, I will be getting more even if they cost more than $15 a dozen.

Some of my sources are saying that Costco is talking with the supplier. So we will see.

So I eBay'd a dozen just because I had to see what all the fuss was about. I haven't played a round with them yet, but as soon as the snow melted I went to my local practice green and tried some chipping and putting.

 

My first putt skidded at least two feet. I wouldn't say it jumps off the putter face, but it's definitely not spongy like the old balata balls. Overall for putting, to me it's just another ball.

 

Chipping is a whole different story.

Anyone who knows me or has played with me knows that I abhor spin. Years ago I remember playing a par 3. I hit a 6 iron from about 175, and flushed my shot. It landed 3 feet from the pin, but spun back off the green. That was the day I decided spin was overrated. I have stuck with the NXT for the last 5 or so years. When I hit an iron into a green, it stops within a few feet of where it landed. When chipping, my stock shot with a PW on a level green lands just short of halfway to the pin and rolls out the rest of the way. I do this all day, every day.

 

But my chip shots with the K-Sig landed just like normal about halfway to the pin but SERIOUSLY checked up - in my opinion, even more so than the ProV1. I found that instead of halfway to the pin, if I landed my chip closer to 75% of the way, it would check up and snuggle up to the hole. I think this is great, especially for shorter shots where you can swing a little more aggressively. While that's pretty cool, I am very worried that it will spin too much on the approach shots. I am playing in Orlando this weekend, so we'll see how it works with full shots.

I think the Ksig is like most Tour quality balls. Seems everyone including me has an opinion one way or the other. For some PV1 is the only ball they will play or works for them they say. For others it might be a Srixon or a TM or a Callaway for instance. Personally I can play my best or worst with any top quality ball. As for the Ksig... it's a top quality Tour ball but that doesn't mean it works for everyone. It won't. I like the Ksig for the performance and the price. Mostly the Price I think. I haven't played one in a week or two because I've been using some PV1's  and TM's and a few other balls I have in inventory. I hope they come back on the market this spring.

I played them in Phoenix the last two weeks, and if they come back I will keep playing them, especially if they are $15/dozen.  I would really like to see them regularly in the Costco stores rather than online.

... I have played the Vice Pro+ and felt it was as good as any premium ball I have played. Fwiw my favorite is the Z Star followed closely by Prov1x and TPx. I was going to order 5 dozen just when the KSig were first released so I bought those instead. If I were paying the same price I would choose the Pro+ over the KSig but that is just a personal preference as both balls perform very well for me.

I was getting the guy who works on my clubs to reshaft my hogans this weekend and he told me about an older gentleman that came in to see him earlier in the week. The guy who works on my clubs is extremely knowledgeable and is an equipment junkie to boot. 

The older guy thought he knew a bunch more than he did. He kept bringing up the KSig and how Titleist sued them, so they couldn't make balls anymore. He wouldn't even listen to reason as to what the real story is about the KSig.

It amazes me how much everyone in my area thinks Titleist is the holy grail of golf OEMs.
