I don't think you will find any of the last 10,000 responses to this thread which express "bother" that you found a ball that was cheap. Only people pointing out that a) there are numerous other options in the $20-ish/dozen range, b) the K-Sig is no longer available anyway and c) the brief availability and cheapness of the K-Sig is not going to change the world.


Obviously that is just a summary of some (not all) of your contributions..but, there are definitely other more imflammatory points made, throughout. Let's not rehash the nonsense.

Played yesterday at a local muni and was paired up with two really nice guys.  One my advanced age and a younger guy.  The old guy and I hit side by side drives on a hole and as we walked up to the shots, he asked what kind of ball I was playing.  Told him a KSig and he about wet his pants.  He's aware of the legend of the KSig, been trying to get his hands on some but didn't want to pay the exorbitant prices on the various websites.  He knew a ton about the ball and now he no longer needs to see how they play he can determine that himself.

So the missus allowed you to take your balls out and play?

Her Mother was in town for the weekend so there were a few hours of freedom.  Reminded me of Kramer..."I'm out there Jerry and I'm loving it!"

You can use other brands in your advertising.  there are rules to you have to adhere to in doing so, but you can.  Notice that it doesn't say "this shiz is as good or better than listerine"  it just says compare to Listerine.  Also, I don't think Procter and Gamble (if thats who owns listerine) are going to say anything because:

A) they will sell way more than the equate will take away through the other stores and those (like my wife) that are still going to buy the name brand
B) WalMart owns the equate brand, and tells them we won't sell your shiz if you say anything about us selling equate....and thats the real reason....  And this REALLY happens.  WalMart tells a lot of companies how they are going to be sold to and if they don't like it, they will replace them on the shelf with a competitor.  I know someone from Mission Brand tortillas, and when they met with WalMart with their proposal, walmart set the terms..
in the words of Dave Mustaine.... when you get in bed with a 800 pound gorilla, it doesn't stop till the gorilla stops...

Costco can't have its supply chain threatened by CostCo... just some of its sales... but if Dicks decided that ALL of their stores and All of the Golf Galaxy's and all the others they own would no longer carry titleist, and it was because the TopFlite was now an equivalent ball, then Titleist would be at a disadvantage, as thats thier number one (i think) retailer....  because Titleist would allow them to sell the TopFlite...  thats a different discussion.  

I may not have made sense, but it is early and I am only on my first cup of coffee....
  I am just impressed Dave Mustaine actually made it into the Ksig thread!

If Dick's/GG stopped selling Titleist Golf Balls, it would hurt them more than it would Titleist. If they stopped selling the balls, I wouldn't be surprised if Titleist pulled their entire line from Dick's/GG.

Guess who'd cave in first.

I'm speaking hypothetically... if they decided to put their own ball out there with the opinion they didn't need the titleist line, and if the perception was that there was a ball that was a viable alternative.  This would hurt Titleist, bad.  I worked in the music industry, if Guitar center dropped Fender, Fender would go under.  not guitar center.  they are X percentage of Fenders sales. and all their sub companies (musicians friend, Music 123, etc)  but Fender is not X percentage of their sales...  Its all a crock, bun fun to talk about...

I know absolutely zip about guitars. But if this store you speak of quit selling Fender I would think it would hurt them. Folks wanting Fender would/could go elsewhere. Same as Dick's. Quit selling Titleist and see sales go elsewhere. Sure, some lazy folks would switch to Maxfli or whatever but anyone that wanted Titleist would just shop elsewhere. Like Amazon.

While we are all waiting on the ksigs to drop - maxfli u/6 are on sale at dicks for BOGO at $29.99. same price as ksigs and I'm sure comparable performance based on my own feeling, testing, and my swing.

The titleist crowd won't care, but to the value seekers that are running low, a good urethane ball that's comparable to the prov are available again for $15/dz

FWIW, I liked the U4 better than the U6.  And if the U6 is BOGO the rest of them probably are as well.

I've never cared that much for Duo, maybe because I'm still mad at Wilson for dropping the old 3-piece ZIP. But at under $10/dozen our Original Poster ought to just go buy 8 dozen of them and not have to think about golf balls again for the rest of the year!
Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

You can also get the Wilson Zip for $10/dozen. I felt that they had similar softness but more spin than the Duo.

Played today the whole round with one Kirkland ball. Not a scuff or scratch on it, and it absolutely ripped up the green and spun back, even a little more so than the the pro'v's and chrome softs I had been playing before this. Love love love love this ball!!! Unreal performance for the price.

   Neither is really same feel wise.  I think the U/6 line has more control around the greens and does feel firmer. Off the tee KSIG is better but inside 100 yards I take the u/6 8 days a week. Again I haven't tried the U/6 Soft and if I wasn't already hording 20 dozen balls of different variety I would absolutely grab some at BOGO.

I like the U6. Underrated. I got the tour but it is a touch hard so would suggest the soft
  I haven't tried the soft but I agree the regular is a bit firm.  I like the Srixon XV as my gamer so firm is ok.

The u/6 has above average greenside spin too!!  Great bang for buck ball!

would you say the u/6 or the u/6 soft is close to the ksig? I haven't played any of my ksigs in so long for fear of losing them that I don't recall! lol
   Neither is really same feel wise.  I think the U/6 line has more control around the greens and does feel firmer. Off the tee KSIG is better but inside 100 yards I take the u/6 8 days a week. Again I haven't tried the U/6 Soft and if I wasn't already hording 20 dozen balls of different variety I would absolutely grab some at BOGO.

thanks for your feed back. I think I have 1 ksig not in a sleeve i'll try out against the u/6 soft and u/6 standard and choose from there.

I'm in the same boat as you though re: dozen's of balls. I would be surprised to count and say I'm at nearly 30dz. don't really need more at this point....should be a few year supply there. lol!

Have a question for those who love ksig. I understand that some feel all urethane balls are the same. They are probably similar. But....I have begun trying to prepare for when I run out assuming no more appear for whatever reason....my question for those that have played the ball a lot is have you found anything most like the ksig...

in the past weeks I have tried Zstar and xv...snell (which I played for 1.5 years...).  They are all good. But not the same. Seems for me that they launch higher and spin less with short irons...similar but....I am a 4 and not on tour so any would be good...but wonder if anyone has experience comparing the Bridgestone balls or something else out there they felt were very similar...I wonder if the difference I perceive has to do maybe with four piece vs three piece feel but am honestly just interested in finding the ball to replace ksig assuming the original is now dead...several boxes to go but am getting mentally prepared sadly..

Would be most interested in balls well below the fifty dollar mark as I just can't justify that with so many similar options cheaper. Hoping snell rumors of the four piece are true but at this point am leaning back to snell.

I was playing the BB330S for awhile, the Kirkland's have a similar feel, maybe just a tad longer and less spinny, but not by much.

The Taylor made LETHAL is a fine replacement....was shocked how well it performed for the cheap price

The fact you found it in a range bucket sums up the ksig career....

Well if you wanna get technical. My local range regularly puts balls in their practice stock with balls found on course. Iíve found Truvis Chromesoft s, TP5s and 5xs, prov1s, and all the other big names out there. I think I was just surprised to find such a limited ball out there.

I found a Z-Star XV with someone's black, thick alignment mark on it. It was mixed in with the range balls around the practice chipping green. I figured, "Hey, I've always wanted to try a Z-Star XV" so I put it into play for a couple holes. After the round I dropped it back off at the practice chipping green.

Two weeks later I was looking for my ball in the rough and found exactly the same Z-Star XV. Guess someone else had "stolen" it to use. I picked it up out of the rough and dropped it off at the chipping green again.

I fully expect to see the same ball again one of these days when I'm hitting balls at the driving range...

I know, right? And I don't even like Z-Star XV!

In fact, that day I played it a few holes at one point I hit it so deep in the woods I wasn't even going to bother looking for it. There's a swamp and snakes and who knows what all in there. So I hit a "provisional" with every intent of just playing it.

As I was walking up the fairway a guy I was playing with said, "Who's playing a Srixon with a black line on it?". Sure enough, it was that darned XV. Must have hit a tree and bounced about 50 yards to end up smack dab in the middle of the fairway next to the 150 marker.

It's like a lost puppy that think I'm the sucker who will take it home and feed it.
