THE ONE AND ONLY KIRKLAND SIGNATURE BALL THREAD


Recommended Posts

Those are not a Ksig. This is just Costco selling a TaylorMade ball on the cheap. These are available anywhere. If you want them that is.

I don't see the comparison or controversy even.

First of all this is my first post I LOVE this site. Thanks for having me. I am a titleist lover. I have a SC putter 4 vokey wedges, AP2s 716 917 D2 and a F3, but I dont love the ball. Then I found th

MBP has got it right. They are theTaylorMade RocketBalls identified elsewhere in this blog.

 

They were not available in my Costco while the K-Sigs were around, and when the K-Sigs sold out they were not immediately replaced with anything else locally. Having not bought golf balls from Costco, I mistakenly believed there was novelty involved.  

 

On a related note, they might have been marginally longer than the Callaway Chrome Soft, but were really difficult to get to hold on what were slow greens this past weekend.

How short lived their inventory was for the second time surprises me.   It sure feels like this is an unused capacity buy.

 

It's understandable that they may have not estimated demand the first time around, but the second?   If Costco was interested in having this product as well stocked as most of their products I would have expected ample quantities in warehouses by now.  

 

It's the unofficial halfway point of golf season and with father's day just passing, the peak of golf ball buying.   It's not like them to miss out on that kind of oppurtunity.

Costco can only purchase the manufacturing time the ball factory is willing to sell them. Adding more shift hours to a fiscal quarter is rarely a simple proposition and Costco is still probably one of their smaller accounts.

No argument from me.

 

I suspect they're accustomed to being able to leverage their quantities to get what they want.   I suspect they probably could get that, but not at the price they want, especially when the factory has other customers willing to pay more.

This seems to be what Costco is doing, buying over runs of end of life products for cheap and reselling them. I'm sure once they have run out of these they will do the same with a different ball.

So it looks like the big return is happening... sorta.. not really.. 

 

Costco is putting out there own ball yes.. but it's not the same as the one previously launched. This is a 3pcs with an M,M rating (low spin across the board) and from what the blog post says is on par with a lot of garbage balls out there.. with they exception of the Wilson Duo of course.

 

What are your thoughts? will you buy it and play it for the 2 doz for $30?? even though it's not the tour ball that everyone was hoping for??

 

If you haven't read the blog post it's here..

Still have 3 dozen left, after that it's off to Srixon Q Star Tour balls for me. Costco balls had their moment.

Nope. If you want to play cheap balls with subpar performance there are many cheaper than these. Hell if you go with this type of ball second hand you can probably get 100 for twenty bucks.

Oh i agree, I myself will not be buying these balls, wanted to see what the community thought about this.

 

I think they'll still get sales from this as uninformed people (everyone that's not part of MGS!! haha)

who will see them there and think "hey that looks like a good price for 2 dozen.."

I just hope that's its very evident from the packaging that it's a different ball. The original K-Sig got a lot of press and there was a frenzy when there was a shortage.....I would just hate to see people buying a bunch of these balls thinking they are getting the same quality as the first batch.

I say, wait and see. If they stack up comparably to the Wilson Duo, that's a good price for a decent ball. Maybe not a Sunday gamer but if I'm getting a fast 9 in mid-week? Oh yeah!

I tried the Kirkland balls when they came out a friend in Florida graciously sent me a sleeve. I have messed around with different balls the last 3 years including the Snell but always come back to the Pro V.

 

I get them used from several sources down here which is good enough for me since I do not play comp or big money matches any more.

I bought them the last time they were released and I wasn't impressed except at how much money I made on selling them. I gave a few sleeves to some friends and tested a sleeve. I have a par 3 course near me with 2 of the first 3 holes being less than 100 yards. Makes it perfect for testing. I noticed after the 3rd hole that part of the cover was already coming off. I was only 1 over at that point so it's not like it was getting well used. I currently use the Z Star XV and I just didn't feel that the k-sig ball held the green as well. I decided to sell the remaining 15 and made close to $50 on them. It was fun to try, but I'm going to take my profit and run.

The Costco website has the KS 4 piece ball reviewed by MGS in stock for members only.  You can order 2 packs of the 24 balls (so 48 balls for $75 roughly).  There is a $4.99 per pack shipping charge.  Get 'em while you can.   I had a very hard time trying to login with Chrome and had to switch to Firefox to complete login process and purchase.

 

Good luck.  

 

PS:  You are limited to 1 order for KS Golf Balls (multiple orders will be cancelled).  so if you want 2 - twin packs, order them at the same time.
