I'm sorry I missed this when it was posted. How in the world does it only have (now) two comments and five reactions?! This might be the finest review ever posted in the MyGolfSpy Forums. I know I'll be pointing future reviewers to it as a model for years to come.

Kudos to you, @Finky999, for drawing attention back to this fine piece of work.

The review is like a fine wine, it needed to age some to be best before consuming.

I've kept the bag out of direct sunlight and away from open flames, I would say they look basically identical to pre seal breaking.

finally, a golf tee that scores a 10 on ground poking. I have been concerned with that and have found price does not always equate to poke-ability.

@thin2win. I think we need to know more about the poke-ability testing. How does it do on really hard ground. I often experience conditions during droughts or winter where I need a small hammer to get the tee fully inserted in the ground. During these situations I often use partial tees to get the right height. How hard of a surface did you test this in?

Brilliant review!  I am a trifle disappointed that they didn’t add 27 yards to your shots. Are you sure you were swinging well that day?

I'll see if I can get some more substantiated poking in this week and get back to you.

@cnosil @GolfSpy MPR

I've had the chance to follow up on some of your questions about poke-ability. And, I've even gone a few steps further. 

I do think these tees are especially pokey. The tips are shaper than most. 

But in effort to find out how sharp and if they will work for your courses teeing area I've tested a few areas around my course. 

Is your tee box made of wood? These tees will poke western cedar :20201101_135716.jpg.618f8489ec75dfd96b5eb2d0bd948106.jpg

Are your tees very sandy? You are in luck! 

20201101_142701.jpg.d2af870495eee5d93654449a50d54e97.jpg

Do you often find yourself teeing up in a shrubbery? 

20201101_135051.jpg.4c466e758706a652e098940a884ddf5c.jpg

Has your course recently been overrun by fungi? 

20201101_134153.jpg.ad7881235b37dd1fc407931f4c616ae9.jpg

Do you think your tees are as hard as concrete? No match for the Vice Tee! 

20201101_133938.jpg.618e3a9b4b60f098ad84c67da5855aa6.jpg

Now, I'm not going to say that the tee cannot be defeated. In my testing I found that both tee markers and yardage markers too tough to get a good poke. 

20201101_134100.jpg.54f22133baf2af43b78ba8382e497199.jpg20201101_134038.jpg.5fa32a8c48377e4951cc97f29d93d3be.jpg

But the tees do float, I didn't find any mention of that on the Vice website. 

20201101_135243.jpg.cc99efc41a5bf5aada0305a6eecabd01.jpg

I also preformed a test on their ability to determine teeing order for a 4-some. I found them to be a little light for my preference to toss, but they did spin in a spinny fashion while in the air and land pointing in directions that would generally indicate who was to tee off next. 

I hope this helps in your quest for that perfect tee.

Side note, they still break on nearly every swing, so their cost per round is above industry average. So, there is that. 

If @Tony Covey MGSwill let me borrow some really fancy test equipment I can test for true shape consistency and cup depth Concavity (made up word?)

Do you happen to know if they make a left-handed version? Too many times those of us who stand on the right side of the ball get left out.
