... Other than Allen Iverson I will never understand why people pay for AAA Used balls having no idea where they came from when you can buy PRACTICE balls for less than 50% of the new price. For those

... You are welcome. To be fair there are occasional QC issues but only with printing not construction. I ran across a great example today. This PIX ball is missing a black triangle on top and bottom.

What practice ball?.. the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..

For those unfamiliar, they are the same as brand new balls they just have PRACTICE stamped on them. Not second quality, not blemished just PRACTICE. Here is a great deal on some TP5 Pix PRACTICE balls and they also have the TP5 and TP5x in plain white for $19.99 and if you buy 5 dozen the shipping is free:

Even better, the retail locations for Golf Discount which is in my area, has the TP5 practice balls for $14.99 a dozen.

It's not a identifier, it's a command! Nice customized reminder of what you need to do to not wind up in the rough so much. 😃

(and I ordered 5 dozen of the Pix over the weekend and they already shipped for free FedEx 2-day.)

My buddy just recently turned me onto these. He plays both the TP5 and ProV practice. This is a killer price too! They carry them regularly at PGATSS for $29. In fact I am swinging by there tonight for the TP5's. My "gottahaveitnowitis" won't let me wait to have them shipped so I'll have to forego the $10 savings. Still, $30 for a $55 box is a hell of a deal in itself.

Great "awareness" post!

... One of my pet peeves is the amount of waste we produce. I really hate decorative sleeves inside shiny boxes of balls when a bag or one cardboard recyclable box would work. So I was very pleased these came in bags. 👍

boxes in boxes seems pretty wasteful, and i hate having empty sleeves in my bag. 

just gonna have to go to a 2 bucket system in the basement closet now. “gamers” and “practice”

My five dozen Pix were delivered today, FedEx two day for free. Damned if I can find any of the cosmetic flaws that caused the PRACTICE brand. Even with the Pix’s heavy graphics, they all look pretty much perfect to me.

i looked over a few before throwing them in my bag.  like you, i can’t see any reason they would’ve been designated for practice. my wallet thinks there just fine, too.

Good to know that they are blemish free.  I had seen practice balls for sale several times and wondered about their quality.

Thanks @chisag for posting this. If I ever get the courage to buy balls then I will look for something like these.

Piling on with thanks for Brother @chisag for sharing this.  I jumped on five dozen of the TP5 when he'd posted them in another thread a couple weeks ago.  Quite happy with them.

Amusingly, I lost the very first one I'd put in play, with Mr Snappy showing up, taking the ball off a tree, and subsequently  into a small pond.  I said bad words, dropped, moved on, and since then have played with the same two balls in my pocket.  One is showing some wear after 4 or 5 rounds, but they've held up well, overall.

Thanks again, Sam.  <tip cap>

Last note, I also like that they came in little bags, instead of the boxes.
