bought a few boxes from the recent MST sale.

tried putting with it and felt as soft as the Pro V1; will try it on the course this weekend.

Looking forward to reading your review, particularly if the low compression result in loss of distance. BTW, how does the price compare to ProVs?

played the ball for 18 holes.

1) drive: with my old-man swing, i was able to keep up with my younger peers. no noticeable loss of distance compared to premium balls.
2) approach: about same distance as premium balls; no noticeable loss of distance.
3) pitch: about same distance as premium balls; ball didn't check and hop, but didn't roll far. probably due to my weak swing.
4) chip: less spin, good for chip and roll players
5) putt: in my opinion, as good as pro v1

I'll have to dig the article up but golf digest had rated it almost as highly as the Pro V1s based on spin rates for driver and wedge.....i just checked the price at golf house here and it's going for SGD48

Tried the ball yesterday.

1. Distance - gives me a good 210m drive (a few yards diff from pro-v perhaps)
2. Approach - landed and rolled 1m for cut shot. 4-5m for draw bias shot.
3. Wedge - soft feel like pro-v but don't check on green as much as pro-v
4. Putting - great feel like pro-v

End of report

Chien, you are being too humble.
My wish is to be as sharp and accurate like you.
