Very good ball for reasonable price.

Posted

Pros: Good distance, durable cover, interesting logo on ball

Cons: Not quite as good for spin as higher priced golf balls

I was pretty impressed with the way this ball played. Right away I noticed the unique logo on the ball and that the cover was decently soft. Playing with the ball there was no loss in distance and even a slight gain over most of the mid priced golf balls I have played in the past. After playing with the SR2 golf balls from callaway I did notice a bit less spin on approach shots. Where the SR2 would land and back up the Monsta would bounce and stop. This is fine for me, however, because sometimes having the ball draw back can get me into trouble by having it roll off the green. The cover on the Monsta held up much better than the SR2 did, which makes sense given how it was not quite as...

Quality ball mark with good functional alignment aid built in.

Pros: High quality material, helpful alignment "markings"

Cons: Price

I wanted to give this a good amount of use not only as a ball mark but also as an alignment aid before posting this review. As a ball mark I liked that it was well made and also that it was easily discernable in the pocket among change. Here's the tricky part of the review, I wanted to actually give it enough use to know if the alignment aid part of the mark was even helpful.

This may not be true for everyone, but for someone like me that can use all the help he can get lining up putts it was...

Great ball, but expensive and cover shreds quickly

Posted

Pros: Great spin on greenside and short range shots

Cons: Cover shreds very quickly, possibly won't hold up for very long

This ball checks up very well on approach shots and around the green. Better than any other ball I've ever played. However, even on the shorter chip shots I noticed that the cover would start to get torn up quickly. If you don't mind replacing your ball a couple times a round some days it's a great ball to go with.
