Vision Golf Ball - US Test Pilot Project - MyGolfSpy

Hi Tyk,

 

The original 6 were being sent by MyGolfSpy last week, I am not

sure of the arrangements as the product was coming out of the

samples I shipped earlier to MGS as per the post/images we all

saw on the other thread.

 

This applies to,

SargeDesign / MudFish / SacTown / TYK / JBones / Canyon 23

 

If there are any hiccups I will sort it out,

 

Cheers,

Boz.

 

 

I never got one either... not too concerned though, I just keep jumping out of my chair every time a UPS/FedExx/USPS truck drives by...

Just like Bridgestone, or Titleist, or any ball maker, they make a variety. Some are urethane covered, some aren't. Price goes with what type of cover they have just like everyone else. No other ball

I was able to hook a few of our seniors at my golf course with the yellow vision balls.   One of the things that they loved about them was the visibility of the balls.  Not just on the ground but also

We did cover this way back when this thread started, if you shine a UV light on these balls before use they are great for low light golf, late in the day, dusk, that sort of thing, they retain a glow

Hi Guys,

 

Unfortunately my courier service out of Oz might be a bit quicker than

the local service. If I had thought it through before hand I would

have done them all from here as it makes things easier for all involved.

 

I have to be upfront as well, I have spent alot of money trialling different

ways to get things moving to date in the states and I am unsure at this stage

how I am going to do things going forward as the golf economy around the globe

is suffering and it will be more difficult to get proper US distribution in the

near future from what I have seen so far.

 

So this trial is really about establishing whether I should be pushing ahead and to

see how much support this US Test Pilot group can give me with my ongoing design work.

 

Cheers, Boz.

Why not look for a partner in the USA? Right now there are dozens of downsized golf executives who have the contacts you need and might be willing to run with the Vision in exchange for an exclusive arrangement for a while. At the very least find an active ebayer. Make him an offer on the first shipment and see what happens. Anything is an improvement over your current "distributor."

You need a US guy, Im looking for a job, hint, hint.

 

I got my package today and I have to say I am blown away. I cant wait to get the balls on the course, they look amazing. The glove actually fits perfectly too, I have long and thin hands so Ive had trouble finding gloves that fit. Im definitely going to have to order a few of them. Plus all the extras, the ball markers, the tees, the hats look great and my kids are trying to fight me for the stickers. Thanks so much for the opportunity to try your stuff out.

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

Received my golf care package today. WOW!!! I second what hendricks97, just blown away. The quality of the balls, glove and goodies all look great. The glove fits like a... glove. It feels great. I have a golf outing on Labor Day weekend and can't wait to share with the guys and get their reaction to the balls. Plus the shipping was super fast coming from Australia. We ordered something from Washington state and we still have not received it and we ordered it before I received my vision tracking number. If that is just a precursor to your style of customer service you should go far in this business. Kudos to Boz and the Vision staff.

Got my package today... If it wasn't raining all day, I'd be at the range trying these things out... they look great...

 

I will hopefully get a chance to try these out either Tuesday or Wednesday, if the rain stops...

The glove is a little big, but fits true to a Taylormade L... I love the way the towel feels too...

Can't wait to get my package. I want to see them yellow balls! haha

Don't look directly at the ball, it will cause temporary blindness. The only way you could lose one of the yellow balls is by hitting it into the middle of a lake and even then you might still be able to see it.

WOW! Got mine today! My wife immediately snagged the pinkys despite my protestations! Guess you'll be getting some feedback from a high handicap lady!

 

Thanks a bunch, can't wait to hit them! I'd post a pic, but its not cooperating.

Mine came in today too. I actually caught the TNT guy as he was pulling into the driveway as I was on my way home. I'll post some pictures here and my review will be up in a week or two. Just is checking the stuff out I really like the towel, the glove, and the colors on the balls are soooooo awesome. Here are a bunch of pictures I took:

A: You guys will love these balls. There's one in the test grouping that will fit like a glove

 

B: Speaking of gloves, if you roll with an interlocking grip like me, pick the sticky bits off the index finger of the glove. These things grip so well, that you'll end up with a callous. Also for those of you who play in humid weather, you should be good with one glove for a full game rather then having to switch every 6 holes

 

C: Tyk; from forum posts you're well above needing a game improvment ball but those Pinky's are the longest ball of the lot. If you can "borrow" it back from your wife for a hole or two, you'll see what I mean. They can really fly but you don't end up with that huge amount of side spin after a 100yrds like with something like a Burner Plus ball.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing the reviews from you guys. More people carrying the Visions flag in North American would be excellent.

I laught at your claims to fight a zombie apocalypse when most of you can't stand up to a Spider

Mine arrived today and thought we had a gentle rain, our league opted to play. I will review the balls in a couple of weeks, but wanted to post what I undcovered today. It was hard to judge a ball on soft greens, but I can already tell you this ball is as long as the Penta and feels better on the putter face. The glove made the bigger impression. The elastomeric portion of the glove provides excellent grip on damp grips. Thanks to a cooperative opponent who allowed me to hit a few UV:X-3s, I was less enthused. The unique exterior was a bit uncomfortable to look at, so you might want to hit some chips and short pitches to get accustomed to the look.

 

Another nice design feature is a dual "built in line." The name vision between two arrows is great for a general alignment for long putts, and a much longer but subtle

 

Looks like a fantastic product, but finding the right niche in the US market without a big marketing budget is going to be a challenge. I really hope we can help.

 

Thank you very much Boz,

When you say they're as long as the Penta which model in the Vision lineup are you referring to, if I may ask?
