$40 a dozen through www.gppgolf.com

Lost Golf Balls has AAAAA quality for $35
Quote:
AAAAA - Highest quality ball in the marketplace. They are like new in appearance and will feel and play as a new ball would. These balls will include team or corporate logo ball and/or player pen marking. We like to call them "One Hit Wonder" golf balls as it was most likely lost after the first swing.


Golfballs.com has logo overrun brand new ones for $35

Or Ebay item 140435342077 is 3-dozen new for $90 + $15 s&h

Not a whole lot of deals out there compared to the normal off-course store prices...

I know about them as I sell them what is the point you are trying to make?

Its a thread about yellow golf balls, a reasonable thing to do is put up a link to other yellow golf balls - YES i sell them, but its pretty unlikely I will sell them from the UK to anyone in the USA when there is a US based supplier who I believe is a sponsor on this site.

I put up a link to the manufacturer in AUSTRALIA, for balance I have added another link!

The point is we're talking about a PREMIUM ball that is yellow, not any old cheap POS that is yellow.

If you don't mind the black stripes on them, lots of range balls are yellow. :P :wink:

If you have hit the XPERT3 you would know it is no POS! Saying that I do not think they have ever been available in the US -

Let's see now, I wonder who markets them in the US? Oh wait, I found it - Mike Tait, how about that!

You don't have any connection to SMT, do you? :roll:

FWIW, UK does sell the Vision balls, but made no attempt to promote them or drum up business for himself. He merely suggested them as a brightly-colored alternative to the Srixons. Can we not look for sinister ulterior motives in every post? Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, that kind of paranoia is the province of a couple of other golf forums.

They're getting a fair bit of play at my home course too. The pro shop carries Srixon prominently and the guys that are buying Z Stars are buying more of the yellow than the whites.

And for anyone that's feeling adventurous, it looks like it's possible to dye ProV1s and other premium balls into shades of orange and yellow. Saw some pics of guys that have tried it and the results are pretty good.

Did they say how to do it? What kind of dye, duration of soak, etc.?

I'm surprised more ball manufacturers haven't gone "outside the box" a bit more. Look at grips and how they sell a piece of rubber in all those colors to make them "different." Golf balls are what are consumed the most. Srixon was smart to bring back the yellow ball.

I personally would love to see Srixon also release an orange version. I'd have a tough time deciding which one to play then.

The product is iDye Poly here:

Apparently you just mix the dye with some hot water and a little vinegar and let it soak for an hour or two in a small container. The colors are not as vibrant as the Srixons, but if you want a yellow or orange ProV1 or B330, it works pretty well.
