Nike balls are back, kind of...


Recommended Posts

 

Made by the same company that used to make Nike balls until they stopped doing equipment. Seems like a good, cheap, option...remove the ☑️, halve the price.

They've been back for a while and are on the list for Ball Lab. Either Rick doesn't pay attention or they were only recently made available to the European market. However, his video is the first review I've seen on the balls since Nike exited the golf equipment space.

I always liked the Nike balls beginning with the 20XI, but I haven't been interested enough to place an order with RZN without some data to go off of.

I'm interested in these as I really like the Nike RZN (Blue) whichever that one was.  However, two things make me hesitate.  1st. I do not like the large/busy logo on this ball, not a deal breaker, but wish for something more minimalistic.  2nd. Would this basically be the same ball technology from 5 years ago at this point?

Granted, I liked the ball then, and my game is virtually the same, so likely I would still like it, but still a point to be made.

I mean, it is virtually the same technology, but it's also performing at or just slightly below the level of several modern golf balls. So halve the price for essentially just as good of performance as a current premium golf ball seems good to me. 

The main thing i was.looking at in the vid was the durability test. And since they perform splendidly and are cheap without sacrificing durability, it actually seems like a really good option.

Just my opinion, but I'd rather buy a previous model of the ball you play unless you played the Nike, it would probably be about the same price if the ball is not already out of stock.

Hope you aren't gaming a DTC ball then - save Snell or Union Green maybe.

nope.....if there is one thing i dont mind spending money on is a really good golf ball. I think everyone should play the best ball out there and forgo club fittings, which, to me, are a waste of money.....for most amateurs....whereas the ball can make a bigger difference in an amateurs game
