Hi all, I've got 4 of these Vision balls that I have won in ball comps....have never hit one so will have to give it a try....seems everyone is happy with them.....worse that can happen is go back to ProV1, although I've been very happy with them. Will give the Vision a fly on Wednesday.

Looks like there's a lot of buzz regarding these new balls! I'm going to head along to the Cannington Rebel sport and grab myself half a dozen of the UV and Arctic White's to try out next week. Great to see there's some Australian based innovation coming through!

Firsty thanks to Boz for the sample. As much as i wanted to like the Vision, it doesnt suit me. I usually play the Precept U-TRI Tour (ive got tons of them from closeout) and ProVs. The Visions lack feel and are very harsh feeling and distance was slightly down for me, this is particularly evident in putting. The pros of the Vision is that they are particularly easy to see in the air and on the ground although when the grass is dry it can become more difficult than a white ball. Durability is huge the ball didnt stuff or scratch even with my wedges (japanese with agressive groves). Spin was pretty good almost the stop and drop of ProV. I think i may be suited to the Xpert Vision, i will give those ago next time. Real sorry for slagging the ball, Boz is a great guy i bet. Its awesome to have someone local dealing direct with us little guys. Theres definately a market for these balls, they sure are the best Yellow balls but dont have the characteristics of premium balls yet. P.S Those tees included are awesome, they never break!! And you can see them so easily. 4 thumbs up.

tgr, good to get some balanced views and you will be right on the button that the other ball will probably be the go. I would hardly call it a slagging:) Testing never hurts!

Methinks that the UV yellow ball is not a competitor against ProV1's but more the next level of ball down. Its the X Perts that are comparable to the Pro V1 et al....

I gave the Vision 9 holes on Wed.....did not hit a fairway off the driver...it came off the irons the best I have felt a ball and probably 5m further than my stock shots. Didn't hit a bunker but was quite predictable and consistent around the greens and I really liked the way it putted. I still got my 18pts out of it, so I wasn't disappointed in the ball. Although I couldn't wait to get to the 10th and change back to the ProV....missed the 10th and 11th fairways but hit 12 14 16 and 18. Parred the last 6 holes to scramble in with another 18pts. So nothing lost and an experience gained. I am sure there is a market for these balls. No-one in our group had seen one before but an ex 2 marker commented on the way it blasted off the irons. So it wasn't just me that it impressed. I'm also sure I could sell the ball I used as a new one....not a mark on it. I wish Boz all the best with his marketing and R&D, maybe if I can get a hold of some of the later balls I will give them a try too. Thanks for giving us the chance to TRY an Aussie ball. Cheers. http://www.golflink....k_no=2080800567

Ok I have found a design flaw with these. The crows love them. Had one stolen from the middle of the fairway and another thief we ran down with the golf cart and got it back. Anyone else finding the crows love these balls?
