What does “Prior Generation” mean? Does that mean 2017 balls?

The prior gen CS's are great golf balls and my go to ball.  I haven't hit the 2018 model yet with the graphene but will soon since I have some here, just trying to get down stock wise on the older ones.

I have heard great things on the new one so you should grab a sleeve of them to try anyway and stock up on a few dozen or so of the prior gen ones!  :)

I will but I’m gonna go through the 2 dozen Truvis pink I just bought. Plus, I may buy more at that price.

Thirty a dozen is a pretty good price on last year's model, which was my 'gamer' until new ones came out.

I find the new ones spin a little better, sound better (to me) off the putter and are longer off driver than previous model.  Great balls IMO.

I have 9 dozen 2016 version and it has become my gamer especially for tournaments.

   Only thing it doesn't do well is it seems to lose distance hitting Driver or fairway metal into a headwind.  Not a big deal I guess for how often it happens but twice this weekend once on Saturday and once on Sunday I hit great drives that came up 20 yards short of where my other game, 2017 Srixon XV would have been on a similar shot.

     I may tinker with the CSX and see if it handles the wind a tad better.  Or I might pick up some Chrome Speed that are currently available for $22 a dozen.  I really like the Truvis style so I might start with the CSX.
