I meant the pixs 

 

... The PIX are still available. I don't know why they are not on the site when you click on the bagged PRACTICE so I sent an email to golfdiscount.com and they sent me a link:

... 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..

Me either! I have a dozen "practice" Pro-v1x's that I chip and putt with, but I've always just assumed they failed some minor QC check.

Just found this, for what it's worth...

Maxfli used to sell Practice versions of the Revolution and HT golf balls, back in the day.  Cosmetic blems, nothing more. 

TM having bought Maxfli.....  no idea if that's a real connection, but it sounds good to me.  LOL

I've been working so much lately that my opportunities to play have taken a hit. So what's one to do when you can't play? Buy stuff! These are back in stock and I decided to buy another two dozen of the Pix. 

It's a two day weekend for me this weekend and hopefully the rain will give me enough of a break to play.

This PIX ball is missing a black triangle on top and bottom. Perfect ball but they can't sell it as new with this kind of cosmetic mistake. For $19.95 compared to $44.95 I can live with a missing triangle:

I got the chance to play these yesterday and I'm really happy with how they perform. First shot with the driver went 250, I did slightly pull it, but it felt great off the driver. I didn't hit another shot with the big stick worth talking about, but I know you can make forward progress off the entirety of the face.

With the irons and wedges, I loved them. I was getting a bit of roll greenside because of rain recently and I expected that. My distance control with the  putter was where I like it, so TaylorMade has a winner in my book.

Got TP5X Pix practice balls from golfballs.com for $16 per dozen with coupon code: 20PERCENT 

Note, they may take this away, it doesn't work for the TP5 practice balls, but i was able to order the TP5X with the coupon. For that low of a price, i don't care between TP5 and X. 

Shipping is $5.95 but still a good deal if you buy enough.

Just as a note to others that YMMV. I picked up a dozen of the TP5x since I had a $20 off coupon, so I only paid $6 in shipping but 3 out of the 12 have cosmetic defects (what appear to be small paint blobs?) Nothing a good scuff on a cart path won't fix, but caveat emptor nonetheless.

(and $6 for a dozen tour-level balls? I can live with 3 of them being slightly less than perfect)

I just bought 6 dozen AAAAA grade TP5 practice balls (no Pix markings, just generic balls) and every one is pristine, no marks whatsoever.  I have about 2 dozen 2016 TM Tour Preferred left so once those are gone I'll rotate the TP5 practice balls into game play.
