thanks paul. now I dont feel bad being a cheapo. I have an excuse that the Pro V doesnt suit me.......when the real excuse is that I feel the pinch losing too many of these expensive balls!

this also mean that 2nd hand balls i not as good as it should be. Provided that the last player is not a Pro.
Then again, if you are a pro, you do not lost balls so frequently... Luckily I only use Srixon Soft feel.. and the recent prata TP

As elaborate as this video may be or seem it is not a real golf ball used in the example. This video has been making the rounds for the past several months globally and we have been receiving inquiries on this. This has been reviewed by many ball company engineers around the world and truth or the matter is there no ball that would compress that much and stay together in one piece. Notice also how the steal plate disappears at impact and that the dimple pattern is very old school and not that used on a modern ball. We do not know the origins of the video but our assumption without examining is that this example is foam or rubber toy shaped like a ball with dimples that was filmed some time ago.
Golf ball compression has changed a lot over the years and the best all around performance golf balls are often softer in compression than the 2 pc distance offerings.
