Why do you want them to spin back ?  I just want mine to sit on the spot.  It's hard enough to hit the right distance without adding another variable.

 

I don't, I was making an observation that with the exact same strike on the ball the CS Spins its **** off and the SR3 doesn't. Didn't come across that way when I read it back but it was what i was trying to say :)

To answer the question though:

Generally it is to put the ball below the hole or as close too it without having to be precise with my shot or might be between clubs and need to spin it back to where I need it.

 

Alternatively it can be useful for when trying to use the slope of the green. For example if I have a green sloping front to back and play long and spin it back up the hill I could get it to stop against the hill close to the hole. Where as if I am playing a stop and drop shot, with the slope there is a chance that it rolls out because of the hill.

 

Been plenty of times where spinning has done that for me, curlewis was 2 holes I can think of and 'Berg once or twice.

But others it has worked against me and glad the SR3 doesnt spin as much!

I don't hit the ball far enough in the first place.

Definitely don't want it coming back some... :unsure:

This was only a 70 m pitch with sand iron farker to a hop forward and I thought great that's pin high then it sucked back off the green , wish I knew how I did it so I could control it

Lol it really is deflating watching it happen when you think it is pin high only to see it come back. 

I could do it up to my 9i (which translates to 110 out). I think 8i may have happened but was on and off.

 

I found the way I did it was the following:

Ball at or back of centre in stance maybe 1 ball.

Hands forward of the ball.

I picked a spot about 1-2 mm in front of ball as my eye target for where I wanted the divot to start.

 

This caused me to come in steep on it and pop it up but would put spin on it like you wouldn't believe. I think at Curlewis on the 5th I sucked it back about 6 - 8 meters after it hopped forward and then sucked back on a flat green.

 

This may be the wrong way to do it but it worked for me.

You talking about the 2016 version being made redundant or the 2016 version replacing the 2015 version?

The 2016 is supposed to be better than last year and more in line with a tour ball.

GCO has the old stock @ $37

Yeah @ 6X its ridiculous.. might have to go back to supersoft. Having said that it still cheaper than pro v1.

Either that or will stock up on SR3 from GCO
