OK - I'm sold.
practice pitch/chip area - we have stock 2 piecers with a hard cover (just for the range). In the bucket there is sometimes some other regular balls (Titleists, Calloways, Nikes, etc....)
The DIFFERENCE in how the course balls check up and dance vs the range balls is DRAMATIC. Exact (feels and flies anyway) same shot with a fairly clean Titleist vs the range ball - the Titleist will stop and check nicely, a good pitch you can almost fly to the hole with good result. The range will land and roll (and roll some more) off the back (so I have to remember with the range balls to just practice where i land it and not get in the habit of playing to the hole with those)
though certainly the difference within the options of course balls won't be as dramatic,
I'm thinking it's definitely worth playing around with and selecting a specific model for next year
