Not sure about that. We bought around 2000 balls for a charity tournament, and the boxes were all labeled Made in Taiwan.

Foremost, which does Vice, OnCore, the Maxlfi Tour Stuff and Wilson Staff model and TP5/5x core & mantles is in Taiwan.

Snell MTB and MTB-X are made by Nassau in Korea.

I often wonder how much of an opinion about a golf ball is confirmation bias and/or cognitive dissonance.   The differences are more or less negligible between these balls.

You hit it on the head.

Snell beats Vice as Vice is more of a brand, a lifestyle.

Snell balls are designed and engineered by someone with decades of experience. That makes a big difference when you consider the actual product. 

true, but Foremost has decades of building ball experience too. So they get some credit for making a bazillion golf balls. 😃

I like the Snell story better, but as far as the balls go, I find them both very capable. I said both were made in Korea, I really just meant to say both were made overseas, and by very reputable ball manufactures, they are both going to be pretty decent quality. 

 

All that said, I still want to hear how these Zero's do.

As a 9, it would probably be presumptuous of me to consider the ball to be a major factor in my quality of play. 

I had an awful time trying to club myself with wound balls when I started out, so I simply didn't play them.

Now they don't exist;   so much for that problem.

How I landed on such a self-indulgently expensive ball choice

when my playing it may not be absolutely necessary is also random. 

I got a dozen as a gift.  I did reasonably well playing them.  My previously played model went out of production.  

New regular ball.  

No point making things more complicated than they are already.

I like their packaging but trying to make the connection between golf and a Mackerel.  Vice most definitely has an "out-of-the-box" approach to golf balls.  Anyone gaming "The Drip"?

And, if you happen upon one of these, hang onto it as they are a limited edition and may one day be a collectible.

I played the drip and felt it was okay in all aspects imo. Honestly I liked the color of it but I'd probably do better with the pro/pro plus.

Hi Guys and maybe gals too.

I tested the Vice Zeros today. Yes they do go farther, maybe 10 to 15 yds more.

I tried the Drive, Tour, Tour Pros. This Zero with my swing speed had the old expected crack sound and I actually had several balls back up. Think Ill get some more before they are sold out. Have fun!

Tried mine today around the green against a Chrome Soft and a Z Star XV.  Was definitely harder than the Chrome Soft and fairly similar to the XV.  Seemed to produce more spin on different shots around the green.  I felt like I could get this ball to check more than the Chrome Soft and a bit more than the XV when I needed/wanted to.  Reminded me of a TP5 in terms of how it reacted around the green, not the same feel though.  Still trying to process that, but I was able to do things with the Zero that I was able to do with the TP5. Taking it out on the course tomorrow.  Hopefully they don't spin out of control for me on full shots.  It was the problem I had with the TP5 and ended up re-homing those balls :-).

Well all I can say about the vice pro zeros is they are stupid. I mean stupid long added 5 to 10 yards. Stupid straight the went on beautiful lines in which aimed and the stopping on the greens was amazing.  Usually I would hit a green and hop off on most shots but these would be within a yard if not close to the divot. So these are now my go too balls.  My old gammers  were pv1,1x, or z stars.

Got my shipment in last night and they're garbage so everything said about them likely being manufactured in a different facility is probably true.

They bear the "pro" name and are barely cheaper than the excellent Pro Plus but they feel like a Noodle off irons. The putting alignment that's usually another reason I stick with Vice (besides price) over Pro V's is now printed over dimples in a more haphazard manner that makes it much less useful for alignment purposes.

It's disappointing that they took a ball that belongs with their Tour/Drive lines and stuck the Pro name on it because I thought it was going to be something I would use at a good price point. Should have ignored the hype and stuck with the balls I've actually used and like.

Well played them yesterday.  They were a really solid golf ball.  Definitely a little more click to them than the XV and Chrome Soft.  Performed well around and on the greens.  It was a bit windy and they didn't spin out or balloon on me.  Other than me spraying them all over the place at was a ball that was worth the price.  Not re-homing these

Looks like they are up on the site for sale now: https://www.vicegolf.com/us/vice-golf-pro-zero-white

Only in white so far, but at the rate I've been losing balls lately it may be worth a go until I sort my swing out...

Really interesting price point, especially with the sale. I am curious but I don't think there is any way I would buy 5 dozen of these without more feedback first. It really seemed that they hurried these to market, going through a new manufacturer. I would be pretty surprised if these balls were as good or better than their other Pro balls. Wish I could just get a sleeve and compare to Pro/Pro Plus and another urethane ball!

IMHO and this is just IMHO I think they designed this ball to compete in the under $25 catagory with the Srixon Soft Feel and Srixon Marathon at Wal Mart. I know Wal Mart now carries Vice balls--- Before I joined my current club I was a big fan of and played both Vice and Snell balls. Both again IMHO are quality balls and if I went back to playing Pro Comp or big money matches I would have no hesitation of playing Snell or Vice. These balls I have not tried yet. My current course has a big Srixon presence so in the last couple of years in various events I have won a plethera of Srixon balls so I play them. But I may for under $25 get a dozen at Wally World to try.
