Never seen balls packaged like this before. How refurbished are these?

They look just like new.

Every "recycled" ball company has their own standards. Some use "Mint", "Excellent", "Good", etc... and some use a grading system using "AAAA", "AAA", etc... NONE of them equate to any other company. They use their own judgement to decide. If they look good, and play good, then what's the difference? If you like them, then play them. Personally, I will shy away from refurbs, but don't mind X-outs once in awhile if I get a good deal. The box and labeling look like some guys in a garage sorting balls in a bucket and putting PC printed labels on a mailing box.

Just buy new. I could sell balls on ebay and call them AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA grade - it means nothing.

 

All of these lost balls should just stay lost. They screwed over their original owner and are now on the prowl to ruin cheap golfers game.

I have some reloads, but they're not golf balls. :)

Recycled golf balls are like buying late model used car. I let someone else pay the big depreciation when they drive it off the lot.

Do you have the opportunity to open the boxes and seeing what's inside? Are the balls clean and almost new/ new looking? Are the reloads marked "refurbished"? Or are they split, cracked, scuffed, marred, folded, spindled, mutilated, stained and waterlogged from keeping gators and fish company for a few years?

 

Personally I'm not opposed to playing X-outs or even recycled golf balls but I'm willing to shy away from refurbished golf balls... it's not that my game is that good, it's not but I don't want to use something refurbished at all.

I'd play them. Hell, the last couple balls I've played have been one's I found on the course.

I have bought mint "recycled" from knet that were great. Then I made the mistake of buying "refinished" balls - essentially a bad paint job and the ball did not feel like the new or recycled version - waste of money. I'd stick with recycled.
