So every once in a while I’ll find these nike RZN Tour Platnum balls on the course. I rejoice and play them immediately. I normally shoot in the 90s, I shot an even 80 today with one.

Anyways the kicker is, they are completely blank balls. No nike logo at all. The only thing on the ball is the alignment arrows and the words in small text “RZN Platnum.”

Does anyone know where these come from? They are my absolute favorite ball ever. No logo. Just a white golf ball, and they perform so great. If anyone has any info I am dying to know how/where to get my hands on these balls. Please help a brotha out!

Well the nike RZN platinum has been discontinued for years now, so the best bet is ebay.

A no logo ball could have been a blem, over-run, or it could be a refinished ball.
Long Live Nike

Maybe it was one of those test sleeves they sent before the release.

There's an Asian company that bought the RZN ball patents and will continue to make RZN balls, I forget the name of the company but I've seen the packaging. It's possible you found some of their prototypes as they are trying to find distributors and retailers to sell the balls in the US.

GREAT balls. I stumbled upon them at the local sports store (Dunhams) in SW Michigan. I bought a dozen solely because were $9.99/dozen and didn't expect much from them.  I got them on the course once and went back and bought 4 more bags. They came in bags and had "PRACTICE" stamped on the side but I didn't care. I will be gaming them until they run dry.

Sounds like a No Logo Refinish but who knows. I did love the RSN Plat... played a dozen last year and loved it but didn't want to get hooked because I knew they'd run out.

Dang! I was wondering how people got those! Probably the greatest golf ball ever in my opinion. No logo, no nothing. Just a white ball.

Best ball ever. It would be great if another company put these back in production since the technology in them is fantastic. Glad I stocked up though - have several years worth stashed away.
