Don’t do it. Take it from a sucker who ordered two sleeves. No feedback on the golf balls themselves, but the promo automatically  signs you up for a $49.99 monthly subscription to swingbits. They the

Call your credit card company and report it  

Hey guys thanks so much for the information. Was looking at my free sleeve of balls and wondering why there was no graphics or information on it which is what led me to your forum. Anyways I  called t

I also fell for this, but cancelled right away and they still sent me the 2 sleeves. 

As far as the actual golf ball goes...I did some testing between this and a standard prov1 which is what it is supposed to be competing against. It is a MUCH harder feel and as all low end golf balls, the full shots with driver are very similar...slightly higher launch but similar spin. Mid irons, the effect gets more exaggerated...calcutta launches higher and spins less. This is also where you start to really feel how much harder this ball is than the ProV. Then the wedges...I hit a 54* that goes about 110 yards and spins about 11,000rpm with about 30* launch when I hit it well. The calcutta was spinning at 5000 if I was lucky and launching at 38-40*! 

 

Not saying its a bad ball...but certainly not competing with the prov. For what it's worth, it seemed very durable.

If you get taken in by this scam, demand access to their swingbits.com website.  I was charged $49.99 and called to cancel any further charges.  When I tried to access their website, I could only do so by doing a "free trial" which means committing yourself to a membership charge 30 days from now.  I wrote their support email address and demanded credentials to access the website features since they charged the 49.99 to my account and have no intention of refunding that amount.  I'll update everyone once I find out if they plan to stiff me for site access as well.  I will report them if they do that.

Update: they refunded my 49.99 when I demanded the site access.  Problem solved.

Paid the $ for a sleeve and paid $6.99 for 3 addition balls. Hit the first ball yesterday off the t and the ball had some crazy left to right movement and then back to the left...wasn’t longer by any means but acceptable....had a 7 iron into the green and the ball duck hooked down hard...geez, what’s going on, dropped one of my reg balls and hit it on the green.....I asked my playing partner to hit the ball as he went for his and it went with the crazy movement again.......it was like a loaded trick ball...bagged them up and hit them into the lake when I got home.....guess they would have been fun to give the competition...save your money....

Suckers!  Whether you pay $50.00 a dozen for ProV’s or $14 a dozen for Kirklands, no ball is appreciably different from another.  “It is the Indian, not the Arrow!”  (I apologize to all native Americans).  Every golfer you watch on TV, with the amateur exceptions, are paid to play the ball they play.  They are not just given balls, many are paid thousands (some tens of thousands) to play a specific ball.  So if you think a ball will go farther, land softer, roll truer, because Dustin, Justin, Rory or Corey play it, keep hemorrhaging those dollars.  Find a ball that you play well with, starting with the cheapest one you can find and work up.  Even try the refurbs if you must.  Once there, try to play that ball whenever you can.  It will be one less swing thought you have to  endure.  Remember, you only get two thoughts so don’t waste one of them on a ball.

I fell for this.  Got the balls, and actually like them.  But I didn't remember seeing the $49.99 monthly subscription to their swingbits.com website.  Saw the charge on my credit card and felt so deceived.  I called the 877-877-1990 customer service number to ask for a refund and the lady on the other side (I think she was in the Philippines) was reading off a script and was very persistent  in offering me a % discount.  Every time I said no I want a refund, the discount kept getting bigger.  I finally gave her the BBB line as mentioned above, and she gave in.  She said I'll get the refund in 7 to 10 days.  We'll see if that happens.  Too bad, if this was legit, I probably would have kept ordering the balls.
