Can anyone tell me how good/bad these Red golf balls are, I've seen them for sale on eBay and thinking of trying them. Cheers

An excellent ball for a mid to high handicapper looking for a decent product on a budget. Offers some serious distance.

I've hit a few which I have found and they didn't impress me with anything outstanding.
Other than it's designed for the budget minded golfer versus a player who wants a better performance ball.

IMO, some players typically try various products, while others are set in their ways.
Most better players are typically reluctant to switch ball brands under any circumstances.

I'll curse at my buddy who's a Bridgestone Rep who throws the tour ball at me when we golf together.
I never liked the "feel or the fact it will not stop downwind very well", but have played them and scored very well.

Like they say "It's never the Indian, so it must be the arrow"  😁

I've been told by playing partners that they like them because there easier to see, and my eyesight is poor and I tend to agree so much so I've drawn a Red square on 2 sides of the ball and I do see it better....

Agree, it's sometimes difficult to identify who's ball belongs to who when other play the same brand.
Having a noticeable and unique marking helps.
I'll often play the yellow color on days for just the sake to prevent others from mistaken my ball.

Yeah and it’s always when you pound one down the middle, that’s why I started marking  my balls with a red inch square both sides. Didn’t lose many after that, and their playing partners knew that was not their ball lol 😂

    • Still no wedges! Jeez i am past 10 weeks on those now
    • Lol. Yeah well I’ve succumbed to just living with them. I’d rather quit than use all hybrids. Just can’t do it. If I have to hit a long putt…like 50+ feet….yeah, yeah I’m Sure I could shank a putt.    Imagine if someone completely covered your club head with lead tape into a ball. Then took all the markings off the grip. Then at the top of your back swing the lead tape comes off and you’re expected to hit the ball squarely. That’s how much feel I have for the club head. Be it a short chip or a full swing. Zero natural talent. 
    • Long second shot from the rough over water to a front pin ... with trees in the way I think?  Onto the green was unlikely, maybe I could see trying to hit it over the green or maybe into the bunker for that chance to hole out instead of a full swing.
    • How do you get the distance right?  I can get on GG the distance I hit the first putt, but not necessarily how far out I am.
    • It wasn’t a particularly good lie, either. I believe that’s what they said on the broadcast. I think he made the right play. What he needed to do was not put himself in a situation where he needed to eagle the final hole to tie.
