I like that they're very cheap. I might buy a box as a gag gift for my buddies and give them each a sleeve... but not before I take a sharpie to it and add a letter to let my friends know how much I love them :D

I can do a follow up for sure.

Great, looking forward to a review. A good ball at a reasonable price hard to find.

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

 

 

...Sheesh we think alike. I would not forgo playing a ball that performed ideally for me for ay aesthetic reason, but I also find putting lines distracting, and the thicker they are the more distracting. Nothing like having a chip shot with the line on the ball pointing just off your intended line. I also prefer to putt out if I am not on anyones line and never reposition the ball, but would have to if that thick line is pointing away from the hole.

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?

No it would not come alive it looked sorta like a dying duck falling out of the air. you did not have to finish the round with that ball in fact you could replace it there and then with no penalty. That is one of the rules that has been consistent through the years . When we were kids we used to find cut balls and hit them and laugh as the rubber bands exploded. You could also get some funky flights with a cut ball

I never have used a line on the side of the ball to align the putt with. I usually use the logo as in Titleist. Now since I have been playing the MG balls and Cally Super Soft balls that can be hard to line up like that since the MG logo is round and the Cally logo slants. So I orientate with the number. Seems to work all right for me

... 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 am not dirty but I still have a sort of disheveled look. Back in my mini tour days I still had a pony tail and one of my nicknames was "Pony Tail Stu" or Hippie Stu. Heck I live at the beach now so that is sorta the way we roll here. Now I do dress decent to play golf decent but with that arrogant shabby look if you know what I mean

... I hacksawed open a Maxfli HT100 just to see what the inside was like. The rubber bands kinda "pop" but when I got to the little rubber middle it literally exploded and some of the goop got in my eye. Got a little nervous because it stung pretty good but it washed out and I didn't have any problems. LOL I didn't realize it was pressurized.

You inspired me to look into getting some, the blokes I play with are a bunch of amended Cuts. Unfortunately, shipping to Aus didn't appear to be an option.

 

Aside from that, they sound like a pretty solid option for the price. I do agree that the alignment line could be a little more subtle.

You line your ball up off the green?

Do you tee it up in the fairway as well hahaha

I never cut one open with a knife or a saw because my old man had told me a story that happened back in the 40s or early 50s Said that this guy he knew cut a Maxfli open to see and the stuff squirted in one of his eyes and permanently blinded him in one eye. I have thrown them in a fire and watched the rubber bands pop and then the center sorta pop when it exploded.

... I wish your Dad had told me! It took a few days for the stinging to completely go away. Not one of my brighter moments, but I was young. Yea, that's it. I was young.

Not humour.

 

Agreed, I did a mini-review of the Blues a while back and the poor design and screen job on the logo just made it seem like a lower quality ball than it was. Aesthetics absolutely matter or people shouldn't care what any equipment looks like!

... To be fair, what equipment looks like is quite different than the logo on a ball since all golf balls basically look the same at address. I think a more accurate comparison could be an equally "offensive" logo on the sole or rear of a golf club. WRX is filled with metrosexuals that refuse to play a club regardless of how well it performs if the sole or cavity has a logo or paint fill or writing that does not coincide with their fashion sense. And as always, it is not my place to judge what criteria people use to make their purchases, but if the TP5x had a normal size logo of a pile of sh!t on it, I would still play it.

The smaller more refined logo on the cut balls does not bother me at all, but it became a review point based on feedback from everyone I showed the ball to. I would definitely rank the percentage right at 50% of people who immediately loved or hate the it. You guys may laugh at this and that's great feedback, but when giving overviews of the products this becomes a valid point.

 

Yes, just like in life there is always a percentage of the population who don't get bother by things, but then there's another percentage that has it's own quirks. For example I have always, since I was 8 and starting out, used the logo side of a ball (not alignment or model side) to give me a rough estimate of alignment when teeing the ball up. I've always found it easier to address the ball this way off the tee and laugh all you want, but I'm actually distracted by non-traditional logos such as the solo Bridgestone B or say OnCore golf's large graphic. Call it a quirk, but it helps me a lot.

... You are not talking aesthetics as an accessory, you are talking function and I certainly get that. I wouldn't even call it a quirk, just the routine that you have developed. Now about that mustache ...

... If Cut balls have a mustache like the porno guy in your avatar, they have a bigger problem than a controversial CUT logo.
