       Resell market is squashed = aftermarket demand is now low

        With the K3 taking some demand off the KSIG , the easier it will be to keep the KSIG fluid and available.

        Last but not least, the overrun story was all BS.  It did help create the demand as speculation was once they were gone they were gone forever.

        All I need now is for the K3 to come in yellow and I "might" be able to settle on just one ball. Don't think Costco cares about offering more options but you can dream right?

Monterey Park and Industry have K4's or K3s??

Palm Desert CA COSTCO had a whole pallet of the 3 piece today at around 3:00 pm,,,,

Had a sleeve of chrome soft and compared it to the three piece and to me they were almost identical in feel, spin and distance,,,,

But who am I to compare golf balls, I play stock regular shaft , not tipped , 95 mph swing speed and play in public courses,,, but I’ did stay as a Holiday Inn,,,,

Played with another round with the K3s.

For the price, incredibly impressed still.

Nothing lacking distance-wise, and spin was good and able to be controlled.

Runner for a chip? Check.

Spinner for a chip? Check.

High spinner? Check.

Spin back an approach from the fairway? Check.

Compared to other balls at the price, where I don't have an easy of a time doing that, one heck of a job. I'll just not play these when it's too windy and gusting. :)

I found a lone box of the 3 piece at my local Costco. I ended up buying it to see what the fuss is about. They look cheaply made. I haven't played a round with them yet but some putts and chips on the carpet left me less than impressed with the feel. Its like a dull dead thud.  We'll see how it performs on the course.

This is very true...I just checked Ebay and whereas a dozen KSig4 were going for $40+ a year ago I just watched as a listing barely squeezed out $26 after 5 days listing time. There were many many more with prices over $26 that did not sell and are not moving. The fact CostCo has rolled them out more frequently this year and are offering the K3 have absolutely hurt Ksig flipping prices but it was bound to come down to earth eventually... right?

Earlier this spring, I ordered the max amount of K3's (2 orders of 4 doz) and am enjoying them.  I had also tried to order extra K3's was the order was cancelled.  So yesterday I tried again and the order went through.  Perhaps the order limit drops after a certain time?  Don't know but happy to see that mine are out for delivery and I should have them later today :)

That was added by the Mods after the thread was running. They made it quite clear at the time there would be no selling/flipping in this thread.

Will make you feel better and share that I'm at a KSig Anonymous meeting at this moment.  For some reason another 4 double dozen showed up on the door yesterday and the golf ball closet is now the KSig closet.

In time, these balls will be a Harvard B School case study also with a new psychology affliction...KSigaidekaphobia.  The fear of not having KSigs in the golf ball closet.

Hey guys, this question probably has already been addressed, if so feel free to link me to the correct place to look.

I had 2 dozen Ksigs from the first release and absolutely LOVED the golf ball. I swapped out my Prov1x & Tp5x for it.

When they released it again this year I jumped and bought 6 dozen. Unless I'm way off based and my swing has changed that dramatically since last year, the ball does not feel the same as last years model.

It does not hold up for me past 6 or 7 holes. My wedges just seem to tear the cover apart & the ball is not checking up on the greens like I felt it did last year.

Is the 4 piece ball the exact same ball that was released last year or am I crazy?

Now that I have more rounds in with the K3, I am not a fan.  It is a pretty good ball, especially for the money, but I like the K4 off of the driver quite a bit better.  The K3 spins too much off driver for me and is not as long.  I might play it in the winter, but I am not buying more for the other three seasons.

I'm  not impressed  with the 3 piece either. It seems to be short on all shots. If there's a headwind they balloon quite  a bit compared to the B330s and U6 I've been using lately. Feel isn't that good to me. Feels muddled. I found my self not wanting to use it. This ball is comparable to the Top Flite Gamer Tour. IMO the Gamer is a better ball.

The K3, like many others, isn't for everyone.  It works very well for me.  So much that my playing partners commented on a few wedge shots I hit into the green.  High trajectory, soft landing, stop in its tracks.  Good feel off the putter (admittedly the KSig feels better on the greens), good distance off the driver, good distance off irons.  An overall REALLY good ball for me.

Weird that people think the 3 piece is any shorter than the 4 piece. I've hit some drives over 330 with it, and my stepson has hit some over 350 with it. Incredible ball, amazing value.

It's all subjective I suppose. I didn't find it any shorter. I just much prefer the feel of the OG KSig.

For us amateurs, I don't think our swings are consistent enough to claim one ball 5-10 yards longer than the other without some sort of ball flight data to back it up.
