A Nice Beginner Ball

Posted

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...

Simply No Equal in the "Game Improvement" Category

Pros: Hybrid to the 5, Progressive, Ease-of-use, Value

Cons: Yellow isn't everyone's thing.

The Adams A5OS hybrid-irons call themselves "progressive irons," a highly appropriate title, explanation as follows...   The 3-5 irons are full hybrids, a nice touch, as many intermediate golfers still don't feel comfortable hitting any iron above a 6. The 8-PW are cavity backs as one might...

Promising so far

Pros: Insert, Balance, Offset

Cons: I still don't sink 100% of my putts

Know first that I do indeed have an Est 79 TM-770, but mine is a satin finish. It is the old "Fontana" style. I think the insert is wonderful. Never really felt anything like it. It's a Surlyn insert, a material that covers most golf balls, so perhaps the interaction of similar materials is a positive. The texture is of importance as well; it supposedly gets the ball rolling much quicker than a flat faced putter, which could cause a ball to skid on the green. And yes, I was able to feel that difference on the putting greens today. This is a completely face balanced putter, which I'm told favors my straight putting stroke (as opposed to open-square-closed stroke). The highly...
