instaReview - Cut Golf Grey golf balls

Recommended Posts

I recently started on Instagram a series of short reviews to look at products that received. I'll cover in a high level and open comments to more questions about the product. 

 

I figure it's probably a good idea to share with you guys here and open up further discussions.

 

Here's my first featuring Cut Golf's Grey (3U) urethane tour ball.

Uh.. Does the cover get "cut" when hit with a wedge? 😂 Lol... Interesting name and great price point for a urethane covered golf ball...

Jokes aside  :D the cover on these is remarkably durable for a spinny tour ball.

I wondered about that myself when they first came out. The name gave me back flashes of laying open an old balata with a butter knife 2 iron---- Trust me NAAAAASTY!

Did that ball come alive with all the rubber bands unwinding? What are the rules on that, did you have to finish the round with the busted balata?

Curious, what temperature did you try the Grey?

Still working thru recent order of cut balls and wondering if the Grey will be a good cold weather ball.

I've played them to the mid 40's and didn't have an issue with feel. Sadly this weekend frost cancelled the ultimate temp test...

I like everything except the name “Cut” throws me off. Visions of balata ball “smiling” @ me.

I played both the Grey and the Blue this past weekend.....my opinion these are a bargain at $20 a dozen.

 

The grey is softer lower compression ball with good spin around the greens, the blue is a 4 piece ball and has tons of spin....I managed to back up a 110 yard wedge about 6 feet!

 

I'll definitely be ordering more.

Interesting... So how do they compare to the Costco balls?

Aside from being more readily available, the Cut Grey differs from the original K-Sig:

 

Grey is 3 layer vs. 4 Layer K-Sig

Grey is a little softer than the K-Sig

Grey doesn't have nearly the buzz the K-Sig did when it came out :D

Dislike: Logo Not For Everone.

... LOL, I hope that is an attempt at humor. They day a logo has any influence over the ball I play is the day I take my first selfie, don a flat brimmed hat and buy some emoji's for my cell phone. My scorecard does not have a box to check for "logo aesthetics".

It is funny how logos matter to some, not a bit to others. I'm in the doesn't matter much to me camp, but that's just me. We've have people dis the Snell ball because they thought the name was silly, and didn't like the logo. As they say in golf, different strokes...

 

I did find it funny that when we posted the blog on the new Bridgestone balls, some guys said they wouldn't use them because they didn't like the look of the box.

 

Now THAT'S silly.

 

That said, gotta get me some of these here Cuts for next season - not much goffin left to be done here in Minnesota.

... Same thing with the RocketBallz driver and fairway woods. Arguably the best fairway woods ever designed and a break thru in technology, but some refused to play them because of the name. Really? I just really never understood that. Although I think you and I grew up in the hippie generation that eschewed almost all forms of fashion. Tee shirts, frayed jeans, comfortable shoes and would not have dreamed of putting a "hair product" on our heads. In fact slightly dirty and disheveled was our non fashion fashion.

I don't get the aversion anyone would have with Logo, name or packaging. Doesn't bother me.

The logo isn't an issue for me, but as someone that does not like lining his putts up with a line, I find that alignment aide a bit over the top - especially for shots from the rough/fairway/sand/fringe where you can't line up the ball so that it can't be seen

      This is a thread for those who are interested in reading or sharing golf ball comparisons! 
      Personally, I am in the stage of personal ball testing to try to find my next gamer for the next season or two. As such, I have been and am in the process of testing a variety of premium golf balls to see which fits my game and personal preferences. My posts in this site will be coming from off my new website (linked here for those who might want to check it out: https://griffinc6.wixsite.com/golfreviews) and will be in the form of a head to head matchup between two of the balls I am considering. During my tests, I will be taking two different models to the course and playing 9 holes with each in the same round, same day, and same conditions. In my posts, there won't be much in the way of technical data other than distance (measured via Shot Scope) but will rather be how I experienced the balls in terms of distance, spin, flight characteristics, performance and fell around the green, putting, quality, durability, and consistency. Once again, for my posts here, these are by no means a scientific test, but rather what I prefer, what I see, and how the balls perform for me. Therefore whatever performs for me might not translate to your game or your experiences with these products. I also invite everyone to post your own comparisons, head-to-heads, and reviews here as well!
      Now that that is out of the way, let the discussion begin!

      Ping Sigma 2 Tyne 4 – Review
      A little background
      Let’s just start with this:  I am not a stellar putter.  I’m not even an average putter.  I’ve been known to be the ‘take a 6 footer for birdie and turn it into a 7 footer for par’ kind of putter.  I’d like to think part of it is due to the wide variation in greens I get to play on (anything from Plinko on the Price is Right to lightning fast U.S. Open greens), but the reality is I just haven’t been that good.  I’m a dad with limited income to spend on golf and little practice time.
      I started this journey to become a Scratch golfer about two years ago.  Since then, I won a free full bag fitting through Club Champion and had a blast doing it.  My favorite part of the whole experience was the SAM PuttLab fitting.  According to the PuttLab, I’m a consistent slight puller of the putter.  My wonderful human of a fitter recommended mallet style with some toe hang.  He laid out a bunch of putters that fit this mold and I immediately started arching the putter rather than pulling it.  I had never really seen that arch path before and I thought I was going to push every putt 3 feet right of the hole.  Needless to say, I made 25 straight 8 foot putts before we re-tested with my favorite putter of the bunch (the Ping Sigma 2 Tyne 4, which also happened to be the cheapest, go figure).
      The thing that was instantly attractive about this putter was the fact that it could be adjusted for length.  I’m 5’8”, take an athletic posture with my putter, and have long arms.  Long story short, I need a short putter, but everything you can buy off the rack comes between 33-35” (or so it seems).  We cranked it down to 32.5” and bent the loft to 1 degree.  Oh……….my…………GAWD!!!  I’m in love, I’m in love, and I don’t care who knows it!!!
      Eye Candy (aka Looks)
      First off the looks.  This think is a beauty! 

      I love the tynes off the back, makes me think of a fighter jet’s wings.  Who doesn’t love fighter jets?!?  As an added bonus, they are very useful when picking the ball up after you just lagged that 40 footer to inside of 1 foot! 

      Grip
      The stock pistol grip is phenomenal as well.  It really helps me to get my thumbs on top of the grip and parallel to each other. 

      Insert:
      People seem to either love or hate insert putters.  I get it, there is soft and then there is too soft.  Not many people want to feel like they are hitting the golf ball with a marshmallow attached to a shaft.  The dual insert on the Ping Sigma 2 putter line is perfect for me.  Soft enough to feel good at impact, but not soft enough to make you question if you hit it hard enough.

       
      Overall:
      I absolutely enjoy putting practice now!  Get this, you ready for it?  I’ve taken nothing but my putter to the golf course and spent over 1hr putting with my kids!?!  Crazy right? Who does that???  Not a single driver, iron, or wedge hit.  Pure putting. That’s how much I love this putter and how much confidence it gives me.
      I’ve only had two rounds with it, but I’ve had 30 and 31 putts with it so far.  Both of those rounds had at least 3 putts that either lipped out or stopped within 1” of the hole.  Only one 3-putt (and that was on a 60 foot putt, all of my playing partners 3-putted that horrible green lol).  From 5-8 feet, I feel like it is going in all the time.
      Had I the foresight to know that I would be joining MGS, I would have taken stats with my previous putters (yeah, I’m the guy who had like 7 putters all on the bench ready to get in the game whenever the starter started 3-putting) and run an ANOVA on putting metrics to see if this new putter is significantly better or if it is all in my head.  I have since sold those putters and am on the road to a single putter relationship.  You have to give this putter a try if you like the looks of a mallet style fang putter.  It also scored well this year and the previous model as well last year in the MSG putter tests.
      Give this thing a look!!!!  I think I’m going to go roll some putts on my carpet!!!

      Hey all, 
      Anyone bought one of Vice's stand bags? The barrel of my bag is about to die, have been eyeing these off... But I hate buying something I haven't seen in the flesh (?) before. My favourite bag was from a gone bust company called Lind Golf, but can't find a bag with as many features. 
      Unfortunately not heaps of pictures of the Vice bag that aren't dolled up and taken from a romantic angle.
