Doesnt the refurbishing process remove the urethane cover?

The dimples are set in the urethane cover, so if the cover was removed, you'd have a ball without dimples.

here at my local Golfsmith they sell ProV1x "x-outs" for $15 a dozen

I didn't know what the difference was so I didn't buy them, but I should

I was under the impression the outer white cover was an integral part of the balls design.

From titelist: " CORE Soft and resilient core formulation for outstanding feel and longer driver distance. CASING Resilient Ionomer casing layer. COVER High performance Urethane Elastomer™ cover. The core, casing and cover of the new Pro V1 combine for low spin off the driver and long irons, soft compression for outstanding feel and Drop-And-Stop™ greenside control." The cover is the white stuff on the outside of the ball, in refurbishing the ball this is all striped off. The casing is the stuff you see when you strip the cover off with a wedge, and the core is the center of the ball. Hence the 3- piece design.

Yeah, that's the cover, and it's where the dimples are.

CASING

Yeah, it's the casing: a thin layer that helps hold the core to the cover. It's like a layer of glue.

No, you strip the

paint off the cover. You probably don't ever really ever see the casing unless you cut a ball in half. Look: http://www.titleist.com/golfballs/prov1x.asp?spec=1 There are no dimples in the casing.

I saw at Walmart that they carry X-Out Titleists. The ones I saw that had openings had NXT Tours/NXTs and HVCs X-Outs. If there's no big differences I will definitely be getting these since then I save over half on the normal NXT prices. It was selling for $9.99.

Just curious if anyone knew anything about the PRO V1 PRACTICE BALLS? I ordered a couple dozen of them from the golfsmith website and wanted to know if anyone had played them before? I haven't gotten a chance to get out and play them yet. I would have put a little more info about them on here but golfsmith doesn't have them anymore. They were only $30 so I figured it would be worth it. Any info would be nice, thanks

so they're just factory mess up's. not balls that have already been hit.

Yea those are the balls I'm talking about Kennay. I got mine cheaper than that. Thanks for the info guys, hopefully I can test them out soon. I looked them over and couldn't find any dimple damage or anything else that would change playability. The only things I noticed were incorrect ink markings. I don't think the large practice stamp will bother anything.

    • I did, too, but now they’re apparently trying to walk it back and scrambling to save face.   Deservedly so. Wilson should have gotten one, too, and suspended.   Just to play a little devil’s advocate, could their line of thinking be to hire these types of guys because they “understand” how to be rough without crossing the line? Or that they understand the difference between being physical and having intent to injure? Not saying I agree with it or believe it, but I’m just trying to see it from a different perspective.
    • I estimate first putt length. When I first took AimPoint, we practiced estimating distance because it was part of the mid-read technique. It’s pretty easy once you break the putt into sections visually. 
    • Thanks for the post and update. I think we are all waiting for them to resolve these issues. I don’t want to abandon it for another system just yet. I do hope they resolve it soon.
    • I assume you do this during "downtime" on the green, when nobody is putting and not waiting until your turn to putt.  Trust me, pacing off a 30 footer, both ways for 60 feet, is time consuming.  But not if you do it while someone else is lining up a putt.
    • I pace off every putt and I am a fast player. I also use the process to 'feel' the green slope under my feet, especially near the hole (obviously being careful of other's line). It takes no time at all and will not contribute to slow play. With the feel under my feet, I am actually more confident of the break and spend less time optically confiming slope than some of my playing partners.
