I had the GALL to say that a site that doesn’t take money from OEMs is more likely to be honest. He didn’t like that!

Anyone that’s spent time there knows he doesn’t like when the cat is let out of the bag, the magic trick is exposed, the curtain pulled from the wizard.

I don't know if many of you follow Tony (@GolfSpyT) on twitter but he's been blowing it up with the golf ball test. Needless to say, this test is going to really help in golf ball selection and prove

I’m glad I traveled to Dallas today. If my wife knew I spent the day looking at balls, reading about balls and talking to dudes about balls she’d leave me. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

Not sure it’s the same site but the owner of another forum once posted a private conversation between myself and another forum member in the public forum!

Hard for me to image it’s a different site dedicated to us “hackers!”

Did y’all see this? Pretty big! I’m glad to see that a big company is at least taking this seriously.

Yeah. That was good.  And while I give them credit for not trying to duck the issue.  As someone asked me earlier today.   Where is the study Callaway said they were going to do, to prove MGS's claims about balls that were off center or had quality issues.

I just for the most part dropped it as anyone who has spent time there knows, he's never wrong and everyone else is a liar. 

I'm fairly certain I know who you are referring to and that is exactly my impression as well.  I suspect he suffers from NPD.  I was just researching some golf equipment info when I ran across a link to MGS... never to log into that golf forum again.

can you post pics so we can see the testing?

Post pictures? It was a simply Epsom salt water float test, what kind of pictures do you need to see? DO you not believe my conclusions?

DirecTV had just launched their streaming service and were advertising on THP.  Myself and another forum member had "cut the cord" several years prior and were PM'ing tips and tricks we had learned along the way.  At that time, DTV Now wasn't offering anything we couldn't stream somewhere free.  Probably still aren't.

JB took bits and pieces of dozens of PM's between myself and the other member and painted them in the public forum in such a way that made it look like we were doing something illegal.  Which we most certainly were not!  When we called him out on it in the public forum, he painted himself into a corner, wasn't able to get out and it was obvious to everyone he was lying.  I was getting hundreds of PM's from various forum members.  At that point, he deleted the forum content pertaining to this topic and banned myself and the other forum member.

I haven't been back to see if I'm still banned and honestly don't care.  Garbage site with a garbage owner!

They cut open a dozen Chromesofts and a dozen Chromesoft X's.   The ball in the picture was the worst of the bunch with many of the others noticeably off.   The X's were interesting as well; there seemed to be a lighter blue "core" inside the blue core of varying sizes.    saw the price tag on the boxes and it is from a local store I frequent.   I know one of the posters on social media is claiming they are counterfeit or altered balls,  but I can assure you these were authentic balls. 

After the last post by MSG I cut open my chromesoft, ERC and Chromesoft X and found no problems with balls at all. I posted on the site my findings and noticed it was taken down. ???? I went out cut some additional balls and found no problems. I would hope they would also post the inperfections of other brands and not just call out Callaway. Also do some more cuts on Callaway balls and see what results they get. I am totally confused. I also did like you and spun my chromesoft and found they balanced really well.

Where were your findings posted?

They explained in this week's NPG podcast that Callaway is not the only one at fault, however they did state that Callaway appears to be the worst offender.

If you have findings, share them here. Just be sure to include pictures as we spies tend to be a #datacratic society and don't always go on word of mouth.

Can't answer why they would have deleted your post as I am not associated with MGS.  I can only repeat what is being said on the podcasts,  they are looking to crowdsource the cutting of balls so they can get a larger sample.  Don't cut balls you buy,  cut those that you find and post the results.  They are looking for the pictures to be done in a specific way and are looking at non callaway balls as well.
