ScottL says "Did you expect the kid behind the counter at Rebel to know the difference between these balls let alone the diff between a golf ball and a cricket ball?" Boz says "Sorry for the confusion, I run three balls and I have 4 six packs available, White box = 6 X-perts – more spin / standard numbers Yellow box = 6 UV Yellow – soft / long / bright / big # Blue box = 6 Arcxtic white – same as UV except brite white Clear box = 2 of each model ScottL,Read the reply from the distributor and maybe you'll see what I mean.And Yes I do expect people in sports stores to know what they are doing,and they aren't all kids here.So happy lucky dipping to you.

Hi Guys, Don''t fight over the issue as it is my problem as I knew there would be a limited amount of golf specific staff in Rebel, so I made some nice point of sale info to help the balls sell themselves. Unfortunatly only 3 stores understood it would help them make sales, so I am now opening a ball box in each six pack to help show the physical difference and will look to put a little more detail on those packs. I wish they were in more proshops so people in ball comps etc would have the chance to play them but that will take a while. Guys I appreciate the feedbck no matter what it is. Lifes to short to worry. :-)

White box = 6 X-perts – more spin / standard numbers
Yellow box = 6 UV Yellow – soft / long / bright / big #
Blue box = 6 Arcxtic white – same as UV except brite white
Clear box = 2 of each model

That's much the same as the other ball suppliers, except the mixture of the three, and that's a great idea, and I would have thought a great place to start

And Yes I do expect people in sports stores to know what they are doing,and they aren’t all kids here.

OK, that's fine, you can think that, but I would'nt expect them to know much at all about ball characteristics, nor club fitting, or anything else about golf other than Tiger uses Nike. That's just the way it is. While these bulk shops can offer a nice price, it pretty much stops there. More than happy to hear and accept stories otherwise, and I'm sure they have happened, just not to me. Edit - Boz, you wrote your reply as I was writing this. I was'nt trying to start a 'fight', but to say you don't buy something because it was too hard after going all that way does'nt make a lot of sense to me.

Hi Scott, I understand for sure, plus the sale always helps! :-) Its interesting that a lot of the Specialist Golf Discounters don't understand the fitting of balls as well, seems being the least expensive is the main priority to making sales which long term has got to fail. I mean someone will always try to be the cheapest but the retailer that has great service and information and reasonable prices can be so much more successful.

Hey Boz At the lexus cup last week I introduced Russell to a few ladies on the tour. (I kept 2 for myself and gave 4 away along with an explanation of WhyTF you would call a ball russell...) They only got a hit during the pro ams, but they liked them. Sure they are tied to their ball sponsor, but they liked the look and feel of them. As you would expect, they wanted something a bit softer off the putter, and I told them that was coming in the near future. While they couldnt endorse them obviously, they liked them enough to point some people from the pro am in their direction. Russell grows stronger every day.....

Rebel sports at Carousel Cannington have them. They have the six ball packs of the UV, Vision and Xpert, as well as dozen packs.

Boz, Thanks for the very quick reply last week, balls received in about 3 days. Had a round yesterday with the same ball, I nudged the occasional tree, smashed it into a limestone path, topped it, sliced it but generally had a good day out. Desite the abuse I can not see a single mark on the ball.. Its amazing how a ball that can take the abuse I dished out could still feel soft off the blade. Feel off the long clubs and short irons ws great, flight and roll possibly better than the balls I usally use, and Id agree with other comments that they feel very sweet off the putter. Despite trying to be sceptical I found the Visions to be well worth a hit.. I guess Im a convert. Cheers Tim

Its interesting that a lot of the Specialist Golf Discounters don’t understand the fitting of balls as well, seems being the least expensive is the main priority to making sales which long term
has got to fail.

I mean someone will always try to be the cheapest but the retailer that has great service and information and reasonable prices
can be so much more successful.

How bright are your balls?

Yeah, unfortunatly that's the case. It's up to us though to try and figure out the difference and what suits us by doing a bit of research, and there is plenty of information in this thread alone to make a decision. Additionally, your (innovative) idea of a trial pack should put any question to rest, as we can try all three, and find out which one we like, with the absolute worst case scenario being throwing away 2 balls. I have no doubt the balls will become very popular very soon, and become a lot more readily available to us, but until then it's worth the trip to the shopping centre to get some.

Thanks Tim, The review is well thought out and entertaining and you now its nice to hear how we can still surprise people. Balls don't have to be white and dimpled to get the job done. Hi Scott, I really appreciate the kind thoughts as it gives me the energy to continue to chase my dreams. :-)
