Hi Foz and Justin, Pinky must be the new White for the guys,this has been really helpful

as I am hoping to use the Pinky's make up with the UV Yellow colour.

 

Just in regards to weight feel , if a ball is just a bit harder or softer to your usual ball

it can feel either a touch heavier (harder) or lighter (softer).

 

Thanks for the write ups. :)

Boz.

BOZ!

 

I finally got the package! I guess it arrived a few days ago. My apartment office called me, "Hey we've had this for a while...". lol

 

Let me first say you are a generous man, Boz. The extras you included in the package are fantastic. The glove is the best feeling golf glove I've ever put on my hand. I've played everything from WeatherSof to SciFlex to Taylormade to Warbirds....this thing is just great. The hat is sexy, of course, and the towel is very soft. Also, best hat clip I've seen in a while! I will definitely make good use of all those things.

 

I just got the package, so I haven't had time to test the balls on the course, but I did do a quick putter feel test in my house. I compared all the models to each other as well as some other popular balls I had lying around (Nike, Titleist, Callaway). My first impression of feel is that the Yellows, Pinkys, and the translucent balls are very firm feeling. My guess is that these are relatively LOW spinning balls, I haven't looked up the description yet...I want my tests to be unbiased of any description or opinion. The "X3", I think its called, is a softer feeling ball...comparable to the ProV1x or Callaway Tour.

 

I admit, it feels weird standing over neon balls, but hey...if they work, who cares? This is coming from the man who just put a pink shaft in his driver. I'm a big advocate of Breast Cancer Awareness, so I'll try not to be biased towards the pink one. More to come in the near future!

 

Thanks again, Boz...let me know how else I can help!

You're welcome Sarge. The cover feel and then total ball full shot feel will be a little

different to normal but take your time and I hope you SEE that I am on the right

track so far.

 

Talk more soon,

Boz.

Played really well until the wheels fell off for some reason, decided to throw away my good swing and top, hook and slice my way around the last few holes.

Lost both Russells for no good reason other than the idiot swinging my clubs.

I still can't decide which I like best but I have been playing multiple balls (if I go round on my own) and generally, when the good golfer is playing, the Visions go further and are nicer to use in all aspects. The Russells were a pleasure to use, straighter and about 5 yards further, nice around the green, but now they have gone.

I finally bruised the Proto but it still flies nicely.

I have not used the Arctic Whites much as I concentrated on the yellows for now.

Played the worst 9 holes of my life on Sunday, lost more balls than ever, could not swing a club properly to save my life. Good thing I did not put any Visions into play. I would have none left. The state of the course did not help, just punched and sanded and championship rough where balls dive in to die. But I can't blame the course, the equipment or the balls - I hate that!

The trouble with this trial is that I get scared to use the Visions near hazards and that gets into my head and I end up putting them into the hazard.

The Pinks still intrigue me and I would like to try them, I don't see them on the Vision site so assume they are not production yet or I would persuade my Brisbane friend to buy some and send them to me.

In all they feel good, I have compared with several brands lately and they give the most satisfying click off the club. Not sure which they compare best with as I do like the ProV1x, but am willing to try anything as I have hundreds of balls.

Hi Guys, Spes brings up a good point about the new balls not being on the visiongolfball website. I have not updated the site since I received the new production stock into the warehouse and whilst I am trilling them around the globe because I am not going to telegraph my approach and extension of the ball lineup to the majors before the January 2011 US PGA show in particular.

 

All the 2011 balls are NOW available and I will look to setup local US access in the near future but to be honest I have been supplying players direct from OZ in quick time and the balls will probably end up about US$25 to US$29 per dozen with a few nice gifts so,,, I am just not in a rush to fully launch in the US until I find a proper distribution pathway that will work during these tough economic times.

 

I am looking to build a small production run of Bright White and UV Yellow TV-One prototype balls to test a few ideas in the near future plus a NEW UV Yellow update to see if I can bring the feel in line with the Gel and the distance of the PINKY.

 

Cheers,

Boz.

Hi JB, Yes I love the The UV Yellow colour but I personally want some more playability out of the structure whilst keeping the go straight/long style so ,,, ;)

 

Hi Ad, The Pinky is set for sure I am looking at building a run of TruBlue's to see if we can get the same results from players. :D Boz.

Well Boz, whatever you do to the balls, just make sure you keep doing it the way you've been doing in the past. I am still really liking everything I've hit so far. I'm with you on the yellow for a gel/pinky type ball too! Would love it I'm sure!!

Had a putting green sesson with the Atric White, UV Yellow and Pinky. Took me a couple minutes to get adjusted, but I liked all 3, oddly enough, the UV Yellow I seemed to "feel" better and much better results.

I just cant get into the pink personally. Im also not sure I can play blue balls, I cant even type it without snickering. Im still trying to get out to the course to try them all out, but loving the UV X3, the gel, Russell, and the prototype off the putter

Nothing helps you find a lost ball better than a provisional hit straight down the middle.

Hi Guys, Thats what i like about this process though is that there is so much more being talked about in regards to the balls than just spin / distance / feel etc,,, that tells me that to be different for a reason will have some traction with other players but I do feel I want to stay a bit more exclusive in most of my export markets.

 

The way I look at things is that when I was looking after the Titleist Leadership (Tour players / Pro coaches / Elite amateurs) Program in Oz/NZ with my father the thing he kept in the forefront of my mind was that our relationship with players was always the most important factor in building loyalty/support to the brand and the ideas it brought.

 

I want my Vision players to experience this type of relationship with me and as such I believe I end up with a better business because of it and that way we turn the Pyramid of Influence on it's head. Regular players become the new trendsetters with enough direct info from the source and other like minded players to info others of the benefits and positive outcomes they can also achieve with the right VISION. :( Cheers, Boz.

Boz, I can not agree more, relationships and customer interaction, is the key to build the business, heck, any business. The old saying "It's not what you know, it's who you know" can get you a long way.

 

A satisfied customer can sell more of you golf balls, than any store display, word of mouth is king!

AW, when you order the balls from Boz, what do you pay in brokerage fees? Just received a bill for $15 for the trial set.

This is one of those ridiculous fees we get here in Canuckland.

I once was billed $60 in brokerage fees for a $20 item from the US.

Go figure, and there is no appeal.

I am thinking of ordering some balls direct form Oz.
