I have 42 ksig 3piece (4dozen minus 2 sleeves) that I'd trade for 2 dozen of mtb blacks. And I'll pay for your shipping cost too.

In regards KSig, IMO, the consistency of the quality has been issue unlike other mass-produced balls including Snell balls.  That's why I stay away from it even though the price is unbelievable.

I am sure it is in here, but dont really want to search through thousands of replies. I tend to hit a high drive (have brought it down with my new fitted shaft), but am looking for a ball that is lower launching. Does the Red or Black launch lower? Thanks in advance for any reply.

Been a bit since I compared these, but the below link shows black launching slightly higher.  I don't remember much trajectory difference in my limited comparison testing.

Ebay or Amazon. I don't now know but they were getting stupid prices for those Kirkland balls. The buzz might of died a bit now but should be able to almost get double what you paid. Then after flipping them stock up on some MTB's.

scheels... yes, they have been in touch with us to carry the balls.. they had several customers come in and ask, so we wanted to make sure that we created a deal for them to allow the price to stay 31.99 per doz... so we take a bit of a hit, but we are able to service our customers in that location with product and keep the affordable price...we have a few others who do the same thing...

I think it was 3rd or 4th batch of ksig on sale.  I bought dozens to sell online and kept a dozen for myself.  when I gamed ksig, first the feel was not the same.  second, I lost distance.  So I had my friend who had the first batch, gamed my ksig balls.  He confirmed the difference.  When I posted the issue, Dean mentioned the overrun parts used.  

Ever since, I never looked back.

  I think Big5 Sporting Goods also carry in some select locations.

      Maybe a little of spin by Dean on this IMO.  Lots of stores would not be able to carry Snell because they would be bullied and threatened by bigger ball makers if they did.  Dean is smart enough to know putting them on the shelves in some stores that can get away with it is not a bad move for anyone.

     My local course is not affiliated with any club or ball maker, I think Snell would sell well there actually, not just MTB but the Get Sum as well as we have a boat load of older guys with slower swings and like the soft distance balls.  

       Dean let me know when you want to make the connection with the Pro Shop!

No problem at all, let us know what you think when you get a chance to try them out.  I think Snell did a good job drawing the line where they did between Red and Black because people definitely seem to prefer one or the other.  Both great balls, I personally prefer the Red (in yellow), but it rides the wind a bit more than I would like.

yes, please have him send email to service@snellgolf.com and we can send him some information... we do not sell to a lot of big retailers due to the fact that we are holding on our prices.. they typically want to make big margins, and with our business model, we do not have this built in so we have to decline.. there are some however, who have wanted to carry the balls at some of their stores, and were willing to make it work for both of us.. they will also sell for the 31.99 price so if that helps someone who lives close by, its a good thing... but the majority of our business is for sure the direct to consumer model we want to stay with...

From my experience, the Black plays more like the ProV1 and Red more like the Prov1x if you are looking for that kind of comparison.

However I think the Black feels softer the the V1 and the red is more in between v1 and v1x.

I purchased a trial pack and have tested both. And I prefer the Red.

   Snell sells trial packs on their website.

   Also RockBottomGolf.com now sells individual sleeves (but you will need to pay shipping)

Can you elaborate on the quality issues?

I think it was 3rd or 4th batch of ksig on sale.  I bought dozens to sell online and kept a dozen for myself.  when I gamed ksig, first the feel was not the same.  second, I lost distance.  So I had my friend who had the first batch, gamed my ksig balls.  He confirmed the difference.  When I posted the issue, Dean mentioned the overrun parts used.  

Ever since, I never looked back.

Oh so you AND your friend confirmed this “quality” issue.

Quite the white paper.

I've been able to play a litttle with both red and black.  Much prefer the Red.  Could be my imagination but seemed a bit longer than the Wilson 50 Elites I play early in the season (sneaky good ball for a 2 piece) and definitely very good stopping power.  Just wish they were regularly available at say $25/dozen without paying for the VIP.  Anyone interested in trading reds for black?

i agree.  Its a great ball and my new gamer from the original MTB.  With all due respect, with the value pack its a little over $27 a dozen.  And you think it should be lower???   Its already $20 bucks a dozen cheaper than most other so called top-tier balls.  Buy them and enjoy that your playing one of the best balls in golf!

LMAO!  You're taking offense to me saying  i'd like to see that at $25/doz.  Its a great ball but there are others coming in cheaper and definitely comparable including Cut, Vice, the original Ksig.  Don't mind me though.  I just try to save a bit here and there so I can play more.

I have bought MTBs from my local Big 5. It's a smaller, old-school store that reminds me of my youth (all those days of buying fishing stuff and sleeping bags, etc...simpler times). I asked them to start acquiring the Get Sums. I have a couple boxes of those crossing the nation as I type this. Way overlooked ball, IMO.

Didn't know snell was available offline. Is this official channel or just some diversion selling?

Somewhere earlier in the thread I asked about the new Snell series in Canada.
Dean gave a reply that they would be available here starting May 18th.
May 28th I ordered 5 doz and they showed up May 31st.
Great job guys, great service and at a great price.

I marked the balls with my usual ID mark and noticed that the finish is somewhat different than other urethane balls such as Bridgestone and Callaway. Those 2 seem to have a slight tacky feel to them and the Snell is slippery.
Anyone else notice this and can comment on it?

Dean himself has noted in this thread that a couple of places have asked to sell his golf balls and have worked it out to do so. Global Golf has also sold the Snell balls.
