If the balll was the right ball for you (Tour-level, 2-piece distance, somewhere the middle), would you play a matte white ball?  I'm, uhhhh, asking for a friend...  

I wish they made more matte white balls. Loved playing the matte white Vice balls.

... Nope. I have hit millions of gloss white golf balls so I have a comfort level with them and the one time I hit my son's matt white Volvik I found it distracting. I couldn't see the dimples and it

It's very difficult to see the ball in the summer here - if it were a ball type that fit my game (Pro VIx) I would try it.

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

Can I vote twice???  If I could I would vote "Hell, yes" multiple times.

 

I've never played a matte white ball but love the idea and would easily put these in my bag.

Yes. As s matter of fact, I tested the Vice Pro Soft which had a matte finish. It was easier to see my ball in the fairway it rough.

Can we have a maybe option?

I'd need to know it's as easy to see, and that it doesn't discolour more easily than a gloss ball. It would need to perform exactly the same as the ball it replaced.

If a matte ball performs better, we should all use one.

This.

Tried the Vice in matte and wasn't impressed. Couldn't see it any better and it just looked dirty to me. I like my OCD shiny white golf balls!

I couldn't see the dimples and it was just so different. Fwiw, he thought they were very cool but on the course he didn't like them either.

I voted yes, but Chisag makes an interesting point.  I may wait for a general conscientious from those that have experienced them before I buy a box.

I've never seen a matte white ball, but I have played with people that used matte Volvik balls of varying colors.  Not my first choice but if it plays OK... why not?

Would I try one yes.. would I buy them? Maybe if they played well, and I didn't fund them distracting.
