My preferred golf balls are the Snell MTB (haven't tried the new variants), but they're still a bit expensive for my everyday use.

Lately I've been playing the MG C4 balls which have performed very well at the price of $20/dz. Solid distance and good approach and greenside spin. It seems like they're a step back from the ProV or Snell but not THAT much difference. I could easily just stick with those but it got me to thinking. I like the new direct to consumer trend but many of those are still in the $33-43 range for a dozen of the urethane 3/4 piece options.

Whats the best urethane 3 or 4 piece that's reliably around $20 a dozen? (call it $15-25) I know many balls will go on sale a few times a year to bring cost into this range but I'm talking about a ball that's always near $20. Can you help me add to the list? I might try to do a real comparison over the summer.

- MG C4
- Cut Blue
- Cut Gray
- Kirkland Signature (although availability is an issue)
- Top Flight Gamer Urethane

Are there more I'm missing?

The MG C4 is fantastic.  I like it over the KSig because it feels softer to me and it now comes in Yellow.  The K3 is very good and a feels softer than the KSig.

Last year I played the Bridgestone RX that I bought on sale, but still not at the MG C4 price point.  The MG is its equal without a doubt at half the price and it is available always at $20 bucks a dozen.

And they make great golf gloves.

If you can't get your hands on KSIG, just go with MG C4 and you will not be disappointing. If there were the same price, I would go C4 over KSIG.

How does the C4 do on the soft feeling side? Is it a mid compression like a Gamersoft or firmer feeling like a Prov?

Thanks. I don't know why companies mainly offer high compression balls in this category. I did notice Golf Galaxy has 6 balls for $10 on the QST. I believe that is a 70 compression ball.

Yeah, and Snell is like $26 and change. But that's 0.50 more per ball. And i eventually decided that's a good compromise for me. I like the Snell MTB (black now) at $26/dz and think it's worth a little more. Still a great value in grand scheme of things.

But for those who play often or lose many the extra $6/dz adds up.

I have both Cut urethane balls and I'm going to compare to the C4 once green fees drop here in FL next month.

Interesting. I'll have my friend get me some. Are the 4 piece more? I thought i saw they were essentially Vice/Snell bulk price

Yes, they are $29/24 but they sold out, in short order.

I posted in the other Urethane ball thread so TL;DR: For me no noticable loss in distance, also the covers held together very nicely for me, medium soft feel, medium high spin (for me as I typically don't impart much spin anyways). I can't justify $45 a dozen for ProVs or CS's, and I don't buy enough to reach Vice or Cut's discount rates. At $19.99/dozen it is a very nice 3 piece urethane ball.

I tried. Seems like a nice ball but durability is an issue as the cover shreds easily.

I have not tried most of the others in this thread yet... but have been playing Cut Blue as a substitute for TP5X and replacement for RZN Platinum, so far so good.
