I enjoyed this testing period with all of you guys. I did my weekly enter of my scores for my handicap, and I was very surprised to see my score had dropped from an 8 to a 6.6. Lowest I have ever been, and even with no practice range I am so close to my goal of getting to 5.  I think it has alot to do to using this alignment aid, and all the hours on the practice green. Ill say this was a very good opportunity for me. 

Awesome man ! .. it was a good group of guys to do my first testing with, really enjoyed it.

Were you already trending downward? 

I also dropped my handicap during the testing period, but it has been dropping consistently over the past year. I'm trying to figure out the impossible, to know how much if any is due to the alignment aid, or maybe just my increased putting practice. Even though my on course stats, show 0 gains in putting. But I am definitely driving the ball better.

I was trending downward, but I had been hanging around 8 for the last 4 months. I wouldn't say the alignment is game changing, but a blend of the line and a lot of practice at 10 feet and under has made a huge difference. I just was very surprised when I saw it had dropped because I did not feel like I have done anything to really improve it, but I'll take it.

Just got an e-mail from Golfballs.com....

Use code 20PERCENT to get 20% off most items.  Titleist isn't included but Bridgestone Tour B X and Snell MTB-X were.  I just picked up a box of each with the alignXL to test against my usual Pro V1x.

Well I played my last align golf ball this weekend, and I really got used to seeing the thick line and not the marker splatter. Once I decide which ball I really want to commit to, I think I will be making another purchase on golfballs.com. Anyone else still gaming them?

I'm going back a forth on the align and the pix.  I'm down to one more sleeve.  I'm in the same boat though, trying to figure out what ball I want to stick with.  I played nine yesterday with the align and shot +4 with two birdies. hit all my putts within 10'.

One of the other testers mentioned that the stripe on his balls looked off center - that is to say were the line continued around the ball it would not meet the start point.  I looked at mine and did find a couple from one sleeve that appeared slightly off center, but very slightly.

I do have an issue in the looks department. The print is great. The color is great. But I do feel that there is an issue with the placement of the line. It might but be me, or maybe it’s the Srixon ball, but the line is not straight. If it went 359 degrees instead of 180, the two ends would not touch. I’m not able to get a perfect roll on the ball like I can with Triple Track. Something is just off, and it’s not a deal breaker as I believe the line still does what it is intended to do, but it is not perfect.But for whatever reason, it just doesn’t match up with the Srixon graphics, and the roll of the ball bothers me.

The line appears to be slightly off center. 

 

The off axis line bothers me a little so I’m docking points here

 

It wasn’t perfect on the center axis 

I've got a new wrinkle from the 3 doz Srixons that I just bought... all of the markings are, in fact, centered. HOWEVER, the stripe on one side of the text is at a different angle than the stripe on the other side of the text. I haven't measured it yet, but eyeballing I'd say the left stripe and text are... aligned (sorry, too easy)... but the right stripe seems to be tilted counter-clockwise by about 2 degrees. Now I'm wishing that maybe the paint wasn't so durable so I could scrape off the right stripe 🙂
