Pros: Performs as well as any ball on the market, bar none
Cons: The graphics are big! Don't look as "serious" as some might prefer.
If you think the top golf balls only come from Bridgestone, Titleist, Callaway, Nike, Srixon, or TaylorMade, think again.
This golf ball performs as well as any of those golf balls while costing less. I don't know how they've done it, but this ball performs well. It's long with the driver, has great feel with the putter, and performs well around the greens with the appropriate amount of spin for your choosing.
I've thoroughly tested this ball in a variety of conditions. Off the tee the launch angle is high without being too high, and ball speed is right on par with other balls, as is spin. This equates to good carry yardage with a moderate landing angle for the expected amount of roll-out.
With irons and hybrids the ball makes a satisfying sound, takes off like a rocket, coasts nicely, and comes down fairly softly. Curvature is about what you'd expect, and the ball holds its line against a sideways wind as well as any other ball I've tested.
The ball feels solid off the longer clubs, and soft and "compressible" off the shorter irons, particularly on pitch shots. Off the putter the ball feels almost softer still, which will be a plus for those of us who play on slightly faster greens.
Dave Wedzik and I can play any ball we want (free, usually), and we've chosen to switch to this golf ball for every round of golf we play - including tournament golf. It's that good.
The only thing I don't care for? The alignment aids are a bit overdone, and I'd prefer to have nothing there than those, but on the tee and on putts I can position them down so I only look at the white part of the ball, so that's not a problem. I kind of like the ostentatious orange "X" - if nothing else, it'll help you identify your ball quickly!
The ball costs only $36 a dozen if you use the coupon code "thesandtrap" at Golf Shop Central .com. It may be the best golf ball in the world at that price!
Update: I've been playing this golf ball now since May and as I write this it's October 8. I just got back from Scotland where I played this ball and only this ball, and it continues to perform GREAT. It is, by far, the best golf ball currently on the market for my game. It spins the perfect amount, is as long or slightly longer than every other golf ball out there, and behaves in all conditions - INCLUDING some 45 MPH winds I faced in Scotland. It's the best ball on the market.
