it is another year (my twelfth) of selling used golf balls on . I
have found every one of these balls on my local golf course and
therefore know that none of them have been submerged in water.Just
take a look at my response for the last eleven years and you can be
assured there is no better value on used golf balls on today.
HERE IS 35 NEAR MINT TAYLOR MADE TP5x GOLF BALLS. Balls that I grade as NEAR MINT will have some insignificant and sometimes almost imperceptible defect that keeps them from
being classified as MINT, my very best balls. There may be small bits
of paint missing, a slight scuff mark, perhaps a small area or areas
of discoloration, or in rare cases they may not have quite as much of
the new ball shine that my MINT balls do. Any defect would be a
non-factor in terms of ball performance, and a non-existent to small
factor in terms of aesthetics.Some of these
balls will have player identification markings and/or logos on them.
If this is something that bothers you, I would strongly suggest
buying brand new balls. Personally, I like player ID markings and/or
logos for several reasons. They help you identify your golf ball much
more easily, and in addition, many of these logos are imaginative and
very cool works of art.
most importantly, NONE of these balls were "water balls" as
I found each and every one of them on my golf course which,
thankfully, has no water, but plenty of trees. This is very important
in buying used golf balls as research has shown that golf balls are
very much affected by being submerged in water. Take a look at the
proof. US Army research reports that golf balls absorb water that
cannot be removed and this affects a permanent change. Recent testing
by Golf Digest found a golf ball submerged in water loses six yards
after one week, 12 yards after three months and 15 yards after six
months. 15 yards is a LOT of distance, usually a club and a half.
Virtually ALL of the sites that sell used golf balls on are
commercial outfits which get their used balls from dredging ponds and
lakes because that is where they can collect thousands of balls in a
very short amount of time. They may look pretty, but you can be
virtually assured they have absorbed water. This is why it makes
sense to buy used balls from a seller who does it as a hobby and not
as a business.
short, these Mint balls are about as close to new in looks and
playability as used balls can get and are so good one of my buyers
actually thought some of them were new!Note
that this is a picture of
the actual golf balls you will receive. Shipping will be 7.95 to
anywhere in the lower 48 states and Paypal is the method of payment.
sell PREMIUM balls that are graded as "NEAR MINT“, balls with
the tiniest of defects, "AAA”, which have one or more
relatively minor flaws, and “AA”, which are certainly playable
and good for practice but show significant signs of wear. PREMIUM
balls include Titleist Pro V1, Titleist Pro V1x, and balls from Nike,
Callaway, Taylor Made, Srixon and Bridgestone. Keep a watch out for
these sales, you never know what will be offered.
