I don't want to read tooooo much into it, but now I'm wondering about the trial sleeve I had. I couldn't play them because they were way too spinny - at least that's what I thought. But now I'm wondering if I just happened to have inconsistent spin and some spun too much and some spun an appropriate amount since I made it about 6 holes before having an "oh wow" moment where a partial-wedge pitch sucked back when I was expecting one hop and stop.

I recall their distance off the tee being good enough, but definitely soft. Not mashed potatoes soft, but maybe marshmallow-after-two-weeks-out-on-the-counter soft. I was actually surprised that Tony's measurement of 78, which seemed high based on comparison balls that are only marginally firmer on the scale but feel quite a bit firmer in play.

I played this ball A LOT two years ago, and liked it.   I would rank the performance for the price paid as excellent.

Thanks to MGS, I am starting to see what factories supplying some of these brands are most reputable, and makes me interested in trying other balls they are manufacturing for other companies. Love the ball lab. I honestly get excited when I see the notification for a new one.

Ahhhh, but the crucial question is which version plays better - the lemon or the lime???

depends on the brand of tequila used.

I would like to publicly apologize to my family for golfing so much
