Pros: Easy distance, great color, improved durability
Cons: Very little spin
First of all, the retail price is $16.99. Don't pay a cent more than that. I actually complained when I saw these at Target for $20, and they had the item re-tagged at $16.99 three weeks later.
Hooray for effecting change in your neighborhood!
Love the color. It's not just yellow - it's "new tennis ball" yellow. A nice visual aide for those that have trouble keeping their eye squarely on the ball. It also seems to be more durable than previous warbirds, known for scuffing easier than a pair of Italian leather shoes. I've been able to make a ball last 27+ holes, provided I don't lose it in the trees. That said: you can often actually FIND your ball in the trees because of the color! So even if you don't feel the need for the color, it may save you a few bucks if you choose to use it!
As for how it plays: Well, not much spin, not much at all. But you wouldn't expect that for a 2-piece distance ball. I play bump-and-run on many of my shots anyway. There are advantages though, the biggest of which is that it seems to curb my nasty slice somewhat. I put very few of these into the woods.
You could do a lot worse for $16.99, that's for sure.
