STROK Golf - Fan Founded Balls

Pretty unique. Looks a little like a box of tissues, but definitely unique.

 

I'm a little confused by your kickstarter. You advertise as your ball being under $30, but your kickstarter pledges say the ball retails for $45

I'm of the opinion that the logo on the ball is too much. Too in your face so to speak. Too distracting. Personally I liked the way the Costco balls looked. I actually thought the logo was classy and understated. I also liked the tiny little numbers they used.

 

Since packaging is a huge deal for this Stroke ball I'd suggest that Snyder take a look at how MG Golf (MG Tour C4 ball) packages theirs. I've bought and played the Tour C4 a lot and personally find it to be an excellent ball. So much so that I can't tell a difference between the Tour C4 and a PV1 for instance. I can shoot a 75 with either and in any conditions. The MG ball comes packaged in a flimsy thin cardboard (paper) box without sleeves. Just 12 loose balls inside. The box is slightly smaller than a typical dozen comes in due to not having the balls packaged in individual sleeves. I'd have to imagine the MG packaging cost 10-15 cents each. Maybe even less.

 

Also. Go to MG's website and look at their balls and the associated info on the ball. And... they are only $19.95 dz.

Too dang large man. Tone it way down. Much smaller. Look at Titleist or Kirkland. Use their classy look as your guide. Use a small number also.

I wish I could make an example for you. But you'll get there.

As we are getting closer to meeting our goal on Kickstarter, I want too take this opportunity to ask the community about how you see big data helping you become a better player.

 

We see crowdsourcing player guides (think Waze for golf courses) as one way.

 

Check out how your help is shaping our product here

Mmmm not sure about your Big Data angle. Perhaps you could elaborate. If you're familiar with what the guys running MGS do they use bigley data for testing golf equipment. I just looked at Waze so I get what they are trying to do for navigating around a big congested city. So, I'm assuming you'd like to make a Waze for golf is that correct? However, aren't there already plenty of GPS and or static map/hole layouts where everything is marked. Golf courses aren't dynamic like traffic. For the most part they say the same all the time unless a redesign or new features are added or removed. Basically, golf courses are static. I don't see what you'd be bringing to the game with a Waze for golf. Probably better stick with your ball for now.

I'm also curious what your plans are if you don't meet your Kickstarter goal by the 24th of June. Have you redesigned the logo for the ball yet?

Not surprising since almost all of their backer money came from the 10 people who pledged 1500 too get a Tyson Lamb putter.

 

They only had $15,449 pledged and $15k was from the 10 people that pledged 1.5k to get the putter

huh.  Too bad.  Looks like they're not all down and out.  Sounds like a partner is on board - perhaps taking the funding issue off the table.  Interested to see/hear more.

I will say the standard Prelux was one of my favorite balls I've played in a while.

Have you guys heard anything from them?

Just the update on the KickStarter page

 

new partner

retooling logo 

etc

 

Hello Friends, 
 It's day 27 of the "mission" and with your support we have raised over $15K! The bad news is we are $13K short! Through this process we have made some great friends and will be adding a partner to the STRÅŒK family. (Exciting details will be released soon) 
 
 It's with heavy heart, but not discouragement, that we are "pulling the plug" on the Kickstarter campaign. This is not the end of STRÅŒK in fact we are moving forward with even more confidence in our products and are exploring some other product offerings! 
 
Additionally we are reworking our logo. We gathered some consistent feedback that the logo needed toned down a notch (or several notches to some) and we are working on those revised options now. If you haven't already joined the discussion, please join us on our social media channels and make your vote count! 
 
 Be certain to visit www.strokgolf.com soon for more details on balls and other news. Instagram, Twitter and Facebook are always great ways to keep in touch or feel free to email me anytime. I'd like to hear your thoughts on new product ideas, how we can be better or how/if you'd like to be a part of the STRÅŒK family. 
 
Keep in touch and until then I will see you on the green!
 
Sincerely your friend,
 
Marcus Snyder 
 
Chief Founder STRÅŒK 
 
Dallas TX marcus@strokgolf.com 
 
PS - you will not be charged for any financial contribution you have made.
