Random Snell Question


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I love Snell golf balls! Great price on a great ball. I usually play the MTB-X, but actually have a stockpile of the neon yellow Get Sum balls for sunrise  morning rounds. Huge fan.

Here’s my question for other Snell users: Do you find that the balls collect mud/clumps on them more than other balls?

Maybe just a phase I’m going through, but it seems to me that I get more mud balls with my Snells than I do other balls. I’m wondering if there is a cover difference that is more susceptible. Or maybe I’m just imagining things. Anybody else have similar experience?

No, I play MTB-X and have never noticed that.

I would say that urethane covers seem to hold mud more than a surlyn cover does, in my experience.

I should have thought of this sooner, but an alternative, and better, theory is that the problem is not the ball, but a change I had made on my driver. I recently went to 10 degree draw on my Cobra Speedking and still had the weights set for high spin. I had noticed that my ball was descending pretty sharply—sometimes backing up or bouncing sideways. Not being too bright, I was just thinking it was due to the recent rain and didn’t think about shifting the weights. Well, not surprisingly, once I shifted the weights to low spin and flattened out the descent of my drives, the ball is staying clean (and getting some great run out). Glad I don’t do this for a living or I’d be broke by the time I figured stuff out!
