Besides Lost Golf Balls and Golf Balls Direct, who else are reputable vendors?  I will not purchase refinished products.

I used golf balls direct once this year knowing nothing about any of them.  With an email code it was worth it I guess.  Some of the balls I questioned as number was faded to point of almost gone.  However, with abundant deals everywhere on new I will most likely not use again unless filling shag bag.  I would assume w/o looking ebay is full of different options.

Thanks, I realize ebay has a boatload of vendors but I would guess some are better than others.

I've purchased over 100 dozen balls from lostgolfballs over the years.  Never their refinished option always highest condition.

Never have had one ball that was "not representative" of the name/performance/condition.  They are also local to my area and have visited their facility a few times.  

If you can get over playing a used ball there isn't a better option.

I've played used balls from lostgolfballs. There's nothing wrong with them in my opinion. As stated above, I also would not play refurbished balls.

I've bought multiple times from both. Lots of problems recently with Lostgolfballs. I won't deal with them anymore. Golfballsdirect, on the other hand, are a pleasure.

Lostgolfballs.com was sold and since the sale the quality of their golf balls and service has gone downhill.  They won't get any more of my business.

Completely agree, lostgolfballs has gone to crap.  I'll never order from them again.

I've ordered from GolfBallNut several times and have no complaints with their product. Customer service is not always what it should be however as I always call in my order so I can be very specific about what I want and they aren't always prompt about returning calls. But again, no complaints about the product itself.

Lost Golf Balls bought Knetgolf Balls in 2016.

http://thegolfbiz.co...tgolfballs-com/

The consolidation allows the 24-year-old PG Professional Golf to streamline operational costs that, in turn, means even greater discounts and product assortment, and lower shipping rates across North America. The company acquired Knetgolf – which specialized in refinished balls – last year to supplement its thriving recycled ball business.

i've used GolfBallPlanet.com.

their Mint is described as so, on their website:

Mint or AAAAA
Mint quality is the best available grade. These balls are like new, they will show no or very little wear and will maintain the original color and sheen. These will include small player( sharpie or felt pen) markings, team and corporate logo. It is hard to believe they are used! Also known as One-Hit Wonders. X-out and practice balls are NOT included
