It will also reduce ALL spin by "up to 30%" because it shifts the MOI outward.

I think Nike has tried to do something like this with their RZN line, at least in terms of moving the weight more to the outside layers. Nothing this extreme though. I'd certainly like to try them out when they're released.

I wonder how much wedge spin would be lost.

I wonder what the difference in distance would be seeing as you can't compress that metal.... Plus I'm not real excited about spending $40 on an anti slice ball. Pass

$40 per dozen is inline with premium golf balls which I'm guessing these are being marketed as.  I'll give a sleeve a try just to see if I notice any difference.

It will be interesting to see how they are received within the industry.  Is it possible that these low spin balls combined with the recent crop of lower spin drivers could actually reduce carry distances for those with lower swing speeds?

I'd rather spend the $$$ to Fix my swing, then to buy balls to help fix it. Maybe I'm weird..?

I had to buy these things out of curiosity - normally I cant slice the ball anyway.

But, if there is something that can help my game (long putter, niblick, 9 wood) - I am all over it.

I can't wait to find some of these on my golf course (in the proper places and under the proper circumstances where it is okay to do so) and try them.  :)

I hope a lot of people go out and buy them, I should even tell the pro shop at my home course that they should start stocking them.  Buahahahaha

I saw that the sleeve was delivered today so I think I may be going out for a 9 hole *or as many as I can get in* round and see what happens.

Those balls are loud when you hit them.Not loud loud but youll hear big difference when you hit one.They fly straight and roll nice on greens but not sure about paying $40 a dozen.

I just got around to playing with them tonight. They are definitely weird sounding. They performed fine. Even got several approach shots that sat down well. I don't know that I'd use them as my go to option, but I may see about getting some for my dad to try out, he may see more benefit than I did.

Are these balls aimed at having a similar effect as the Polara golf balls, but without having to align an arrow?

 

Price seems a bit steep to me

These basically just reduce overall spin, thus helping reduce slice/hook a bit. I did see they certainly curve less, but I was still able to get them to spin enough on approach shots that they didn't roll out a whole lot. The only thing that makes the price a bit high, to me, is the shipping. Other than that they aren't priced much different than what I use now.

    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      On Craigslist around Phoenix we used to see loads of irons in the early part season because people would buy clubs they can't hit *cough* blades *cough*, or just clubs that weren't fitted or they didn't like and then sell them. That's how I got my nikes before they were stolen.   I don't buy into the new distance drivers and such, but the forgiveness is definitely a major improvement. I take my old Wooden Woods to the range every once in a while and not only do misfits cause massive distance loss, they just fly horrible as well. The new stuff is definitely helpful to worse players but if Ben hogan could drive a wooden club over 300 then why is it so impressive to driver a super forgiving driver over 300? idk, just my $0.02
    • Injury Question
      With my insurance I can't afford a MRI.  I got one for my rotator cuff a 2 years ago and my insurance only paid $80 of the bill .  I'm still paying the bill since its either pay off it quickly and struggle with my school loans or pay it off slowly and pump more money into those things I used for school.  Without an MRI, I'm not sure how much help a doctor would be able to give me.
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Everyone gets double bogeys. Even the pros. The pros just don't get them often.  We all have blow up holes. Mine tend to come in pairs. Then I'll settle down and hit "the shot." I consider an 8 a blow up hole. It's usually the result of a bad tee shot. Although on a real fast green once it was the result of a four putt.... in a tournament.... when I missed a 1 foot putt. Another thing we tend to do is try to do quick fixes during our rounds. Don't. They don't work. Play with the game you have. Fix your problem at the driving range later. If your driver is in the woods constantly, leave it in the bag for the round, and practice with it on the range. Hit an iron off the tee if you need to keep the ball in play. 
    • Injury Question
      Okay, so this isn't exactly something recent.  In fact its something I did in August, that seems like it just doesn't want to heal completely. The injury in question occurred on my downswing on August 7th, it felt as those I pulled every muscle from underneath my arm pit to the bottom of my ribs.  I gingerly tried a few swings after that and why it was tender I guess endorphins got me through the rest of the round (2 holes).  I probably should have taken a few weeks off to let everything heal after this, but seeing how I had lost 70lbs over the course of 4 months and would go onto lose 130+ lbs by October (mostly through golf) I was kind of blinded by the motivation to keep pushing myself.  I played with severe discomfort for a couple of weeks, and then it kind of faded though it felt tight to make a reaching movement with my left arm. Now months later, the pain is basically gone when it comes to golf, but every now and again if I do some unknown action with my swing I get what feels like popping sensation and the discomfort comes back for that swing.  The tightness when reaching never really went away either.  Most of the time it isn't a problem, its just something that occasionally bothers me and I was wondering if anyone has had something similar?  I'm currently trying to strengthen the muscles around that area to see if responds to what eventually got me over a partially torn rotator cuff.
