I don't REALLY care... as I said earlier this thread was inspired by someone recomending ProVs for an Xmas gift when they knew nothing of the other golfers skill, abilities, or needs. I was simply having fun with the fact that I THINK, many people plays these balls not because it is the best ball for them, but because of advertising, ego, misperceptions, and otherwise.
P.S. I feel similarly about Scotty Cameron putters, but not to the same extent. I think they are a little over-priced and some people buy them more for image than performance. Not saying Scotty's don't perform, they are very nice putters... just think that performance and fit isn't always the purchasor's motivation.
