While the particular ball that you found appears to be the crystal ball model which is an okay ball at best.  I do play their vivid model which has a matte finish and I really like.  Volvik is very popular in Asian markets as they are made in Korea and they do make some good golf balls.  Golf balls are so subjective and you should just try out different types until you find one that performs for you.

I had not heard of Volvik until this year when we watched the LPGA in Ann Arbor, MI.    They sponsored the tournament.   The colors are very vivid and bright.    I received a 2 ball sleeve that I use for indoor putting but I have not hit them otherwise.

This Spring I played an orange Volvik Vista ball and thought it was a great ball.  It was easy to see in the rough and follow off the clubs in the Spring sunlight.  Once summer hit, I went back to standard white balls and have kept using them through the Fall as the orange Vista's blend in too easily with the leaves on the ground.

Rather than starting a new thread, I'll just revive this one and fish for more feedback on Volvik balls.

Like the OPer, I found one of the bright red Volvik Vivid (matte finish) balls glowing in the rough last week, cool looking ball and how the owner lost it I'll never understand? Ray Charles could find this ball.

So, I played 9-holes with the Volvik today (42) and the back 9 with a yellow Bridgestone e6 (45) for only my second ever sub-90 round and both in 2017.

The ball felt great all the way around, but was wicked good off my wedges and putter. Other than flying a green with my 7-iron, it was spot on all day.

Anyone else playing these balls? Seemed to play better than other sub-$30/dozen balls that I've played. I was going to try the Vice ball deal but the Bridgestone e6 deal for 2 dz/$40 got me avfew weeks back...and I like the e6. But, now I think I might try the lime green Vivid balls next rather than 5-dozen Vice balls.

Any negatives on the Volvik balls?

I love the Volvik Vivid!  I found one and it sat in my bag for a long time before it ever got teed up.  But when I finally did bring it out to play, OMG, it flew 20 yds longer than my normal drive and felt like a rubber ball off the face of the driver!!! I was astounded by the feel and I've bought all the different colors and only play Vivid now.  Incidentally I made my first hole-in-one with the bright orange Vivid at none other than Spyglass Hill #3!!

This ball is super awesome.......but it has a tendency to come off clubface of irons hottt.I think once you switch to them and get your yardages dialed back in then you will be ok. I bought a sleeve of the S3 whites and I can say they are clearly the best ball ive ever hit.

My wife bought a couple at golf Galaxy. They almost hurt to look at in bright sunlight. They were also super easy to find in the rough.

Ran across an abandoned greenish-yellow matte finish Volvik. Actually made it last a few rounds, which is a damn miracle with how lousy I've played so far this year.

You can sure as heck see it. That's a plus for me. Feel was as good as the E-6s or Nike Softs that i like to play when economical. That, of course, is going to be the reason I don't play it. $30 for a box of balls is too much for the likes of me. I won't mind finding a few more free ones.

Nah. Only found one, although it was in the dead middle of the fairway. My course's clientele love the Topflite XL3000. The older, the better.

Congrats on the Ace! I'm digging the Vivid a lot too. Haven't lost it yet

I'm finding them coming off the driver pretty hot too....but I really the feel with my wedges & putter.

The e6 is normally around $30/dz too, I got mine on the 2dz/$40 special they ran a few weeks back so I'll be playing them for a few more weeks and really like the Bridgestone too....especially for $20/dz. But might have to try the Volvik after that...playing this one I rescued has me a little intrigued.

We know how right. Those are those perfect (or at least good) tee shots we all hit that disappear when we show up to the spot we think they landed.:pound:

When I buy balls, I usually get recycled e-6 or Nike balls at about $10/dz. Otherwise, a trip thru Kittyhawk's par-3 course will generally yield a half dozen randoms for free.

Hate to be a Debbie downer but I'm not a fan of the look of the Volvik.  I've had a couple guys in my group playing with one and I actually had a hard time looking at it...just seems off to me.  I was never happier when one of the guys rinsed his only one (the red ball) in the pond.  Felt guilty feeling that way but I got over it quickly when he dropped a nice, new and shiny white ball.

    • How? 🙂 Day 14 – Moving or Touching Loose Impediments or Touching Sand in a Bunker
    • If I am understanding this correctly, I've been able to, for over two and a half years now, move stones in bunkers, as long as doing so doesn't move my ball, same as I can do on the fairway or in the rough?   I either missed this entirely or forgot about it.   
    • It was explained to me that they wanted people to remove stones, but not to give them so much freedom that they  could just go messing about willy nilly and moving their ball. So, what they came up with did that.
    • Previously the LR caused a stone to be treated like a MO in all respects. Now the rule doesn't.  Why not?  Why shouldn't the Rule simply deem a stone in a bunker as either a LI or treat it by Rule as one? A safety conscious player could incur a penalty for being safe about a stone but not a walnut.
