Bad reputations are hard to shake.  I get grief for playing "rock flights" quite a bit.  Playing partners even look at me sideways when I switch over.  Give the Gamer and Gamer Soft a shot, both are very nice balls.
Topflite D2+ Distance is not a hard golfball. In fact it has a nice soft feel to it. Reputations are hard to shake, but in the case of top-flight I think the term Rock flight is a thing of the past for most of their stock.

Now *that* was a rock! Even the Top-Flite XL of the day wasn't as brutally hard and unpleasant to hit.

Any weather hot enough or cold enough to damage a golf ball would kill me. They all go farther when it's hot and shorter when it's cold. If there were a ball I could use for more distance in the cold I'd be using it on hot days too, believe me.

If the RZN Plats come back for 7.99 at Dunhams I could contend. I missed out on the last round, someone had bought them ALL the day before I found out and trucked on over there. By the time they got them back in they were back at 14.99. I hesitate to say how many I would take if they had sufficient stock but I will point out that I have significant savings account money and 6 credit cards that each have a minimum of 25k credit lines. Not that I'd do something that crazy but I'd guess their stock would run out far shy of me wanting to stop. Failing that a crew cab truck with an empty bed would be a safe start as to how many I'd take at that price. I'd guess it's capacity would be limited due to them being in bags, but I'm thinking 500 dozen would be a safe capacity bet even given the bags. I can only hope that I have a chance to find out.

Wow, would you really buy that many?  LOL

I don't have that many but I do have six dozen that you can have!  :)

IMG_1057.JPG This is just a sample, I currently have over 10,000. I have one hole in Arizona that no one else is brave enough to go down into. This hole collects about 50-100 balls per day, and I pretty much get them all, every few months. It is quite dangerous, though. Only way down is some semi-technical rock climbing or trudging down steep hills through some insanely thick brush with lots of sharp thorns and poison ivy. Not to mention rattlesnakes, copperheads and coral snakes; I've seen them all in quantities. Then you have to get back up the cliff or up the overly overgrown and steep hill with 100+ lbs of balls. And of course it is trespassing, wo you have to stay out of view of golfers, because there's always some grump who will call the marshall on you, who then calls the guys in the black Suburbans to take your balls away from you. I'm not exaggerating. Not to mention snake boots/gloves and durable clothes to protect from branches and thorns in 100+ degree temperatures. Then get home and clean, sort, get a lecture from the wife about a 40-something year old husband and father putting himself in danger... Yes, I'm a true nut.

The upside is that it is a high-end course and out of every thousand, about 500 are pro v's, another 250 are premiums, and the remaining 250 range from cheapos to nice, low- to mid-level balls. I had a guy who is a bigtime golf ball dealer offer me $3,000 cash to tell him where it is, but I prefer the adventure and reward of it all to myself!

I love it. You've earned yourself a like sir. Now don't get yourself snakebit. I don't know much about AZ but I wasn't aware there are Coral Snakes there. Learn something every day. I also learned that I can not putt today. I could have putt all of those and not made a single one. Not this morning anyways.
Actually the corals I have only seen in Texas now that I think of it. I just read an article by Justin Thomas who said that when he is putting poorly, he shortens his routine and his stroke, and makes sure he is aligned properly and remaining still. Maybe try some of that!

How I accumulate them:

Step 1: buy a dozen ProV1. But donít play them, I know Iíll worry about using them since theyíre expensive. Save them for special rounds on courses Iíll never get invited to play. Repeat this step when a new version comes out, establish golferís hope chest.

Step 2: buy 4 dozen Chrome Softs on sale. Tell myself I wonít worry about losing them, I already have several dozen.

Step 3: start round with Chrome Soft. Less, but still slightly, concerned about losing it.

Step 4: hook one into the weeds, find four other balls looking for it. Feel a little bad losing a nice new ball like that.

Step 5: finish round with scuffed NXT Tour I found, donít come close to losing it.

Step 6: repeat steps 3-5 every round.

Step 7: repeat step 2 when a sale happens. Tell myself I already have several dozen Chome Soft, I wonít worry about losing them.

Voila, stash.

This is me down to the letter and I also see the lack of logic you've laid out perfectly, but I have no plans of stopping (particularly with black Friday approaching). There's something about a dozen unopened balls that is too beautiful to touch. I also buy mid range 4A quality balls from lostgolfballs and 5A premium balls in the buckets when they go on sale. Based on how much I play and how often I lose balls, I would have to play every weekend for 3 years to use my current stash. That's assuming I don't buy or find any balls on the course. Who cares though. It's a relatively cheap habit and I can give some to my playing partners

I thought I kicked the habit but I just counted 21 dozen on my shelf.

4 dozen Zstar, 4 dozen Prov1x, 4 dozen Ksig, 2 dozen Chrome soft x, 3 dozen B330S, 2 dozen U6, 1 dozen SR5, 1 dozen TPX.

I need to settle on a single ball. The worst part is trying to guess which ball will be the best one for the conditions of the day [as if I would know that] lol.

Yes. I just bought 5 dozen Chrome Softs from Dick's, which I fully intend to play, but today I played my cold and empty home course after a 144-player best-ball outing over the weekend, and it was like an easter egg hunt, balls friggin everywhere. Played by myself and had one of my best rounds ever using a found Vice which I'd never played before so I was curious.

I suppose that to determine if an individual is truly a "hoarder" - the pace at which they lose golf balls is a factor.  If a single digit h/c that loses one ball or less per round has a stash of scores of dozens of balls, then perhaps yes, a hoarder.  The guy who is practically teeing up a new ball every hole needs a deep stash.

Three distinct classifications are presenting themselves:
1. "The Finder"...can't resist pocketing them whether or not they're actually searching for their ball in the woods or hazards. Wind up with a garage full of balls you'd never play unless threatened.
2. "The Bulker"....AAAA or AAAAA or even New but not in sleeve stash. 5 or 20 gallon paint buckets everywhere. When this transitions to using contractor grade trash bags, intervention is required.
3. "The NIB"...."new in box". Neatly stacked dozen or bonus sleeve dozen manufacturer boxes usually stacked by color/brand. Is usually accompanied by a serious GG/DSG coupon habit or has an extensive Watch List on eBay.

Further study recommended if someone can blend in multiple categories. I personally think that once someone has got to NIB, there's no turning back. I'm saying this based on a friend of mine. Not me.

I thought I kicked the habit but I just counted 21 dozen on my shelf.

4 dozen Zstar, 4 dozen Prov1x, 4 dozen Ksig, 2 dozen Chrome soft x, 3 dozen B330S, 2 dozen U6, 1 dozen SR5, 1 dozen TPX.

I need to settle on a single ball. The worst part is trying to guess which ball will be the best one for the conditions of the day [as if I would know that] lol.
just curious SR5?  I am familiar with SR1/2/3 but not 5

Oops. I meant SR3.

There's a part of me that wonders if I'd lose fewer balls if I kept fewer on hand.

Until I found this site last year I never owned more than 3 dozen.  Somehow that swelled quickly to 20 dozen.  Fortunately, I made the decision to sell 12 dozen or so on eBay.  

I have come to conclusion I need a high optic ball and getting rid of all the white ones.  Extremely tempted to try some of the Volvik but hopefully I have the will power to wait until next season at least.
