A) What balls do you play?
B) Just because its a brand name doesnt mean its a good ball; i.e. Titleist DT Solo
http://3balls.com is where to go for cheap/ quality stuff
i think they have a bunch of over run pro v's for under $40 and NXT's for $20!! A good ball that no one plays for pretty cheap is Wilson Staff TX4, theyre like $30 a dozen. BUT for the money you cant beat the logo over run NXT's.
Like someone else said, balls that have been sitting in the woods for a while are junk, doesnt matter what kind they are. Stop being Cheapy McCheap Pants and cough up a lil dough for a decent ball. Unless you suck at the game, in that case the ball should be your last concern, and you can get some top flites or Noodles and save a bunch of scratch.
I played a bunch with the pinnacle gold ls and I liked the fact that they were pretty good off teh tee. I want to TRY something that would still be good off the tee but better then gold ls (that I keep reading only good things about) on the greens.
I dont want to pay big money for really expensive brand new balls since my driver game is not quite perfect yet and I dont feel like loosing a couple balls per round due to sending them in the woods or in the water. My iron game is pretty good so I was thinking about getting a few really good golfs balls for the short 4 and 3 where I can get on teh greeen pretty easily by using my irons only.
or you could buy from me!!! the balls ill send you are basically brand new, and theyre pro v1s which are better than nike one blacks in my opinion. but ive got a few of those if you really want them. just figure......a 12 pack of brand new pro v1s cost like $50. ill send you 15 mint pro v1s for $35 shipped to your door. so if you change your mind let me know.
