Some of them are surprisingly pretty, even if you've seen the insides of golf balls before…

Some of them look like flavors of ice cream :drool:

Amazing to see the differences that lie beneath the covers of modern balls. I used to love hacksawing wound golf balls in my youth. Cut about halfway, and the ball would "come alive", as the rubber windings under tension would crawl out and emerge. All that wound energy slowly emerging from beneath the cover. It could look pretty frightening at times.,..

A few look unbalanced or off center, I wonder what each ball is/was. I might have to do some ball chopping. Thanks for sharing the link.

Maybe I didn't see it, but it would be cool if they said what brand each ball was

Do you think the colour of the polymers used inside the ball are coloured for any particular reason? They are pretty but why bother colouring them?

I am not sure but I think it is so when they mix the resin they know what ones go into what balls. As I have cut open a few balls from the same brand but they were different series of balls from the same brand and they were different colors.

Seems like a valid theory. I think it's so the people working in the ball factory have something pretty to look at :-P

That is part of it.  Also, during inspections any variation in color will uncover a molding issue.

      The faces are unsupported and sit on a hollow cavity inside the club. It's unsupported to allow it to flex more for ballspeed. Unfortunately, that can cause it to break more easily. Basically, it's like punching through drywall: it's easier to break through when the wall behind it is empty than if it's attached to a brick wall.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Of course he is entitled to his opinion.  But when he lards it with attempts at bolstering his opinion with stuff like "I saw Jack play", and "He was nice at a clinic" and challenges people as to whether other people saw Jack play like he did and just where did you see him play . . .  well then scorn comes into play.  Especially when his claim is not just that Jack is better, but he claims that Jack is " by far the best".   By far?  Really?  There is an assessment I hadn't previously seen in the thread even from the most avid Jack supporters.  One can argue for Jack rationally, but claiming he is 'by far" the best, and adducing as evidence the facts that a) he saw him play, b) Tiger is not winning now, c) Jack was nice the time he saw him at the driving range?  Is that remotely a rational argument?  Not to mention this little piece of . . I don't know what:  " What is Tiger doing now? He sure is not winning. His historical achievements are nice but they don't win tournaments."  means or has anything to do with anything.  I mean, replace the word Tiger with Jack and it is equally true and equally besides the point.  So your criticism is completely off base.  Reasonable people certainly can disagree.  There is a difference between scorn at someone's opinion, and scorn at the reasoning process they claim as the basis of their opinion.  He gets his opinion for free. But his facts and reasoning, should he choose to share them as he did, are subject to logical analysis and challenge.  You are free to like chocolate, but if you give your reason for liking it as "my favorite hat is brown and so is chocolate" then people will look askance at you.  As they should.

      I would expect them to just replace the one club. That's what warranty is for, defects in material or workmanship and if they determine there is a defect in that club I would expect it will be replaced.

      Sorry it's the xr standard irons from last year. What would cause the crack?
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Hey guys and gals! I need some help reducing or preferably eliminating my blowup holes. Im currently playing some of the best golf of my life but the blowup holes are killing any chances of shooting a good number. I aim for bogey golf and usually see 3-5 pars per round with the occasional birdie. I consider bogies good holes and average 6-8 of those a round. But the doubles and triples are destroying my card. Can anybody help me with this?
