Anyone who hasn't watched the Q and A with Dean is missing out. It was so nice to see a no BS video that educates you about the golf ball process without trying to sell you anything telling you their product is 20 yards longer blah, blah, blah . Thank you Dean!!

I have a excellent short game. It's unfortunate that it starts on the Tee.

Thank you .. i would like to continue the education process with golfers in the future, so hopefully we can do that again, and answer questions anyone has about golf balls, performance and technology.... we had over 1000 questions sent it to us to answer, so we chose a few so it would not make the viewing too long... around 22 mins, but lots of questions answered.. thanks again for the continued support...

Really enjoyed the video and I'm happy to hear you guys are open to doing more of them.  Once my supply of Srixon runs out I'll be giving MTB a try.  Thanks Dean, its thoroughly enjoyable having a manufacturer such as yourself take part in this forum.

Congrats kobe882!


I was fortunate to get one in 2005!


I tried a Snell MTB ball today (found one) and I thought it was pretty hard!  I hit it as a second shot from a few different places to try it with different clubs!

Haha, I know where it had been.  The guy ahead of us, hit it in the sand trap on a par 3 and left it there for some reason!  We watched him hit it in there but then when he got closer to the green, he dropped another ball and didn't even deal with the sand trap.  The ball looked like new!  IDK what the deal was with that, maybe he doesn't like the sand or didn't notice the ball was in there and thought it went farther which would have put him into the woods, not sure!

Yeah you should always know where your balls have been!  lol

Did he make a rude hand gesture toward the ball in the trap as he walked by? If so, that might have been me.

I hit a shot the other day that looked absolutely perfect in the air. Don't know if it hit a sprinkler head or what but it bounced at about a 110-degree oblique angle and ended up on a downslope in a deep bunker. I was so annoyed I didn't even stop to fetch it out of the sand.

A sensible man will realize that the eyes may be confused in two ways---by a change from light to darkness or from darkness to light; and he will recognize the same thing happens to the soul.

Not that anyone would ever hold anyone to anything in an interwebs forum post, but do tradeshows/golf being seasonal play into any potential release schedule, over and above actually have a releasable to the market quality ball ready to go?

I'm still enjoying the MTBs in a rotation with remaining my Lethals stock and 330RXs, so I'm not really looking for anything new, more don't mess with the recipe, but was just wondering? :)
