I traded a half-dozen of my Blacks for a half-dozen Reds, but I think I prefer the Blacks.  I'll probably try the new X, maybe split a dozen with a friend, but I must have 4 dozen Blacks still waiting to be lost.  Still, its interesting to see how Dean is revising his line-up.

I'm staring at 12 dozen boxes of MTB Black… which fortunately didn't change (except to add yellow), plus a dozen MTB new-in-sleeve and an extra sleeve of MTB Black.

Plus I'm sure I have a few more sleeves scattered throughout the house or garage.

I didn't play nearly as much as I thought I would last year, apparently. I'm going to hand out sleeves this year to people I like.

People I like… and see in person. 🙂 I thought that the "hand out" part gave that away. 😄

Hanging out here and then playing in real life is like black and white. Rando people I get paired with no nothing of Snell. Snell? They're like, what, I smell? 😝

Yeah, it's kinda funny how unaware people are, and how big "the golf market" truly is.

My league guys know about it and many of them play "found" balls. I gave a sleeve to our Commish and he really liked the black. Another guy plays the red.

The cost is what will bring customers in. 

In one of our tournaments, I lost a ball right off the tee. At the end of the tournament, the Snell Red guy found my Snell Black in the high grass and gave it back to me!

You’re right in the home area though (for Titleist too), though, @boogielicious.

New Bedford is more of a fishing town. But it is right next to Fairhaven, so maybe Dean just likes the area.

I think he’s from there. At least was there for a long time with Titleist.

And my point was your area is likely more aware of Snell because of proximity.

Possibly. But I am not sure some of the guys in my league could find New Bedford on a map! :-P

I may have to try the newer versions this year. The MTB Black was a bit of a disappointment for me unfortunately. I noticed a good bit of loss in my driver distance and a little bit in my long irons when compared to almost any other ball I used. I also split 2 balls with the driver. One ball came directly out of the sleeve and I split it in two. Have broke many range balls but not a brand new ball.

As mentioned in vid, had no idea yellow color was harder w/some plastics.

Colorant can affect plastics a lot. The can change the shrinkage of the plastic in molds and coating.

    • Here are my top five favorite and least favorite players currently on the PGA Tour. Favorites------------Jason Day, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Francesco Molinari Least Favorites----Dustin Johnson, Bill Haas, Billy Horshel, Rory Sabbatini and Hunter Mahan                                                                                                                                           I don't really dislike the last five as much as I just catch myself pulling against them when they are in contention. (Also, I realize Haas and Mahan are not in the top 125 right now). Who are your favorites and least favorites?
    • Well, it's not an absolute, of course.  It's just a tendency to fare well in the long game and crap out in the short game.  (BTW, the 7-iron over the green was pretty useful information for me.  It is the result of my fiddling with the swing.  Looks like I am getting about 20-30 yards extra off my irons with this hips-first swing.) BTW, on the 7 you quoted, I hit a 2nd shot off the tee since the right shoreline is tree-lined and I did not think I could get a decent drop.  I should have put that part in there.  Naturally that faded some and ended under a tree anyway. pfft Klineka, we are so far off the topic now that I have nearly forgot the point. Actually, this thread has been off point for a long time anyway.
    • made some changes and have a few DTL videos to share. noticed inconsistent ball position was causing some previously unexplained mishits. using a couple of alignment rods to fix this. widened stance and feeling more centered foot pressure. just feels more solid. keeping chin higher at address and throughout backswing. much easier to get a full turn and had the unintended consequence (along with wider stance) of reducing lateral head movement when i load up (à la henrik stenson). using a neutral grip now. most frequent miss has turned into a pull. neutral grip helps prevent pull hooks. first video is a drill (7-iron) i'm using to improve tempo and separation. it's the drill i love to hate: challenging and significantly reduces power but very helpful. this particular swing is acceptable but i want to try to get more separation. 1) i need better core strength and to do more pelvic exercises. and 2) i need to trust the top half will follow the bottom half. feedback or questions? second video is about 80% tempo with a p-wedge. there's a clear difference between this and the drill swing. i hit this ball dead straight but it could've easily been a 10-yard pull if my timing was slightly off. i want to fix this so i don't rely on timing and i think that starts with a more consistent path on the backswing (like in the drill) and getting better separation so i don't jump at the ball from the top before sliding/turning with the lower half. feedback or questions? third video is an example of how much more drastic this swing flaw looks with longer irons. here i'm hitting a 16.5* driving iron. saved the shot with good timing and roasted a baby pull fade but it could have turned out badly. i want this club to be my fairway finder. have made solid progress in the last few weeks but still have a bit of work to do before i'm comfortable bagging it. feedback or questions?  
    • I wear jeans to work, and thus find myself on the driving range wearing jeans quite frequently.   No real positive or negative to swinging in jeans.  a bit hot in the summer.   kinda nice in the fall.   
    • I second what @billchao says. You want someone to take a look at your swing. But if you're going to look on YouTube, just for general knowledge on the swing, I would check out Eric Cogorno. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClOp9ASmFYATO1zFfpB7QlA Or Athletic Motion Golf https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvtpTGbGiMgI8gWlsMUmdLA
