After listening to the latest edition of NO PUTTS, it seems as if Callaway is once again off to a bad start with the new ball.......we'll see how it pans out in relation to the other major brands

Had the same thought .. thats not good since they definitely had issues with MGS last year when they did the find it cut with those balls.

I may have missed something somewhere, but why is Tony putting the balls in an incubator?

I would guess he is attempting to replicate the temperature/humidity at time of manufacture so that the ball is as close to the factory environment as possible.  It takes away a potential Avenue of escape by an OEM where they could say the ball would test different at the factory because of temperature/humidity.


Driver: Cobra Speedzone 10.5 Mitsubishi AV Blue S flex

Wood: Cobra Bio Cell 3-4 Grafalloy Pro Launch Blue (low launch original version) S flex

              Strata 4 and 5 hybrids R flex

Irons: Strata 6-PW R flex

Wedges: Texan Classics 52, 56, 60 R flex

Putter: Odyssey Red Ball mallet

Ball: Srixon Q Star Tour

The purpose is to make sure that environmental variables are as consistent as possible to accurately isolate what is being measured without contamination. Keeping balls in a climate controlled room giving the balls time to properly acclimate is likely good enough, but the incubator approach is the next level in consistency that reinforces MGS’ commitment to testing.

Many standard tests in the rubber/polymer industry have the requirement that samples are stored and/or tested at precise temperature and humidity as the results can be effected pretty strongly by both. For Tony's results to have the most impact, he pretty much needs to follow a procedure like he is.
