Now this a true unscientific approach, but I am still convinced of manufacturing issues with Callaway.

Thanks for doing that.  We were told that they had the problem fixed.  It looks better but not as good as most would think it should be.  Interesting.....

Certainly not impressed with QC from Callaway. I wonder what the percentage is for the defective merchandise in 2020 versus the 2019 product.

I really like the fact that the consumer and entities like MGS have identified irregularities within golfball industry. However, while a blatantly off-center core is obvious I do wish someone would identify what the precise numbers should be. For example in the video the person that cut the balls mentions "half a millimeter". I would like to know what is the manufacturing tolerances or what numbers would emphatically tell the consumer that if a ball is off-center x amount, then the consumer will likely experience wobbles on putts, less backspin on wedges, guaranteed side spin off irons, etc. I just want to know which brands are repeat offenders and which ones are in family regarding acceptable specs>  (i.e. there may be some variances but not enough to worry about). I have played many versions of Callaway balls over the last few years and have no perceived issues--granted my swing/game is not the best to base that on but for me all is well. I do expect companies to produce the best product available and am very thankful for MGS and its testing.

I don’t know anything about golf ball production, but it’s less than 20 thousands of an inch off according to the off hand measurement. With multiple pieces in the golf ball and being it’s not a machined product I would think any ball could be off that much. I too wonder what tolerance is acceptable and if some of the other premium balls are perfect or similar.

It's because they spent all their money on their super computer for the Flash Face tech, they didn't have enough cash to center the cores.🤪
