I remember when actual wood clubs were in their last days, Powerbilt woods came with a warning sticker to not hit harder surlyn balls with their clubs or damage could occur. Obviously you don't have the option to play a wound ball but I'd be safe and stick to lower compression urethane balls.  
There are lots of comparable products. Today nobody has the market cornered on performance. To me the issue is tailoring the ball to your spin, feel and trajectory preference. Then select that ball and play it. Constantly switching between balls can be confusing.
Are you sure that's not simply an air bubble in the paint?  I've had that before and its not an issue - just a slight dab of nail polish and problem solved.
Total overkill. All I've used for years is a bucket with a few drops of laundry detergent and a few inches of warm water. I toss any dirty balls in while I'm cleaning off my clubs. Then when I've finished the clubs the balls have soaked enough to be cleaned off. I use the same kitchen scrub type sponge for clubs and balls. Easy, simple and cheap.
From what I'm hearing the first purchase is .99 cents - correct?  Beat them at their own game. Just go to the local drug store or grocery and buy a pre-paid credit card.  Put $2.00 on it and make your purchase.
The raw materials aren't the only cost.  The huge casting and forging machinery is VERY expensive and maintenance intensive. Its all added in to the price.
 While we play "what if?" one only needs to look at Nicklaus' 19 second place finishes in the majors. I'm sure a couple less lip-outs, isolated bad breaks, miraculous opponent chip-ins (Watson, Pebble Beach) and Nicklaus might have 25 or more majors.  
 I think the radio discussion also said only one person (Nicklaus) had more than one major in their 40's. At this point Woods needs five majors for the record. I don't dispute his will or previous historic talent, but father time is being cruel to his health.
I heard on the radio last week that only 22 different golfers have won a major after the age of 40. Woods will be 40 later this year. Given his current physical condition, and state of his game, I think the probability of him winning five majors is pretty remote.
What's going on here?  If that's a ball you cut in half why is the half on the left larger?
