Buying the Snell MTB direct, six dozen at a time is a great deal compared to buying TP5 a sleeve at a time at the golf course. But an even better deal is available buying six dozen B330S off eBay for a hundred bucks or so when a cheap listing shows up.

Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

If I ran out today, of both Q-Stars and K-Sigs...it would be between the Q-Star Tour or Snells...23/24 dozen in volume is a decent price.

I will try almost any ball if the price is good. That being said I am more in love with yellow colored balls as i seem to play better (or at least see the ball better, especially in the golden colored grass this time of year.)  So right now I like the Srixon Xv, 2016 B330-RX and Vice Tour Lime (when they are available)

    I still have a large variety of non yellow urethane inventory to cycle through (use or sale) including 7+ dozen Ksigs. There is no BST here but yellow Vice Pro would grab my attention.

So I noticed a pal I play with a couple times a year was playing a ProV1x "refurbished" ball today. (said he gets them for around $30 a dozen which seems high) He is a low single digit cap player so I mentioned I had a good amount of KSIGS and gave him one to try.

Fast forward to the 18th hole and the his partner in his cart is playing a KSIG on the 18th green. I inquired about how long he has been playing the KSIG and he said, "oh this is the one you gave him and he gave it too me."

Was very surprised anyone wouldn't at least be curious about the KSIG, especially when they pay good money for refurbished balls. The Titleist Brand has a strong hold on some people, more so that I even thought was possible.

The Taylor Made web site still has last years Tour Preferred and Tour Preferred X on sale for $22.99 a dozen.  Price includes free shipping. A very good ball.

He's WAY overpaying for refurbished balls.

That beggars belief that $ value is accurate. Did he mean to say $13/doz? Brand new with personalisation right now they're going for $39.99 and then they do that annual 4/3 deal which gets them down to $35.99 or so.
Never been keen on 'refurbished' balls, at least with lake balls you know it hasn't had that refurb coating applied to it.

Nope... The plain and simple fact is that there too many others that I know are already very solid choices for the same or less money for me to want to fool around with them. I'm sure his golf ball is very good from all that I have heard but his direct to consumer pricing is just not attractive enough to lure me in.

i would agree with this. the price needs to come down 4-5 dollars. Snell is kinda the titleist of the budget ball. haha.

haha! I know I don't need to justify it all but I'm going to attempt anyways. I realize it's ridiculous that i have so many golf balls hoarded and I've posted in the ball hoarding thread but that's not to mention the ammo boxes I bought during 2017 as well...I stocked up on the nike balls as they got out of the equipment biz - good deals to be had from friends who work for nike.

got ksigs when I could...logged approx. 120 18hole rounds in 2017. I've banned (new year resolution?) myself from buying balls in 2018 - unless I am going to run out (unlikely). A round can be 1 ball or 12ish (very rare but has happened once) depending on the course and my tee shots for the day. This week I played one round and lost 4 balls. But didn't lose a ball on the other 4 rounds. After my wife commented on my golf ball hoarding, I start every round with a new ball now, and haven't made a dent in the stash.

I need help. lol!

Ha! I feel your pain - or whatever to call it. After holiday deals I have 2 remaining boxes of Snells, 2 Lethals, 1 Prov1, 4 2015 B330s, and now 9 2017 B330s.
If they didn't get nicked off my door step I'd have Ksigs as well!
Balls are definitely the last refuge of the ho.

But didn't lose a ball on the other 4 rounds. After my wife commented on my golf ball hoarding, I start every round with a new ball now, and haven't made a dent in the stash.

I need help. lol!

i am willing to bet a significant sum of money that you will buy golf balls at some point this year. conditions such as yours are not easily dismissed. haha.

Nope... The plain and simple fact is that there too many others that I know are already very solid choices for the same or less money for me to want to fool around with them. I'm sure his golf ball is very good from all that I have heard but his direct to consumer pricing is just not attractive enough to lure me in.

i would agree with this. the price needs to come down 4-5 dollars. Snell is kinda the titleist of the budget ball. haha.

I found a MTB in the $1 experienced ball bin at a course so I figured why not...it was in good condition no scuffs or discoloration...looked like a one hit wonder. I really liked it and when I'm getting close to running out of my stash, i'll probably switch to them. However I am a ball hoarder - ksigs I'm at 4.5dz, Nike Rzn Tour Black at least 14dz and Rzn Tour platinum 10+....


.....and yet, you still bought a ball in the $1 experienced bin......

  I have 7.5 dozen Ksigs and last week I picked up a mixed dozen (9 Ksigs + 3 Vice Pro all in near mint condition) from the guy who sells on the road next to my course for $10.  

    In my defense, I have given 3 of the KSIGS away to people to try and I really wanted to try the VICE.  The price was too good to pass no matter how much ammo you have in the garage.

Periodically I jump on Costco to check on KSig possibilities, etc.  Decided to chat with them and see if there is any update...hre's the chat with the name changed to protect the guilty.

Status: Connected
Faustina A. has joined the chat

DP4: Hi...checking to see if there is any update on the availability of the Kirkland Signature golf balls.

Faustina A.: Hi DP4! That’s an unusual name. Thank you for choosing Costco! My name is Faustina A. - I'm reviewing your request and will be with you in just a moment.

DP4: Awesome...thanks. My parents didn't want me hence the name.

Faustina A.: You are very welcome

Faustina A.: I am working on this for you

DP4: thanks

Faustina A.: I am very sorry but at the moment we do not have a ETA on when they will be available again, however we are a live web site which means when we do have inventory available we will put the item back on the site

DP4: Will they be available at some point this year?

Faustina A.: It is possible but we just don't know when

So the reality is there is no news other than the possibility we might see them sometime this year.

Yeah, it's cold and boring here in the frozen tundra.

Not ball related but shows how much Costco will tolerate to please the (cheap?) customer.

heard about this and on a larger dollar level (never seen live Christmas trees at the local Costco's) right after superbowl, I see a lot of TV's (especially larger ones) in the return area. I don't know that I'd buy a tv, just to return it a few days or weeks later - set up is a pain! back on topic though....I got nothing to say at this point lol

Played a round of golf over the weekend with a gentleman that worked at Titleist.  Naturally he was playing ProV1's, but he wasn't having a good day and lost quite a few balls.  Later in the round I had noticed he was playing a Ksig, so I remarked about it to him, and he quietly replied 'opposition research'.

This story in particular reminded me of something from the past, with another ball:

BITD, when the Pinnacle was first introduced, our Titleist rep gave us some individually boxed Pinnacles that we could do with as we wished.

I gave one to each one of our board members.

This one board member owned the Cadillac dealership in our little town, and leased more acreage in our county than anyone else. He was pretty well off financially.

He played that ball for 2 years! Took it out of play if there was any type of possibility of losing it in water or long rough/trees, etc.

The last time I saw it, it was still round, but the cover (or what was left of it) was kinda grey/brown.

Can't even imagine what would have happened if I had given him a K-sig!
