    As most of you know I am a Srixon fanboy, have been for a few years. Specifically the Srixon ZStar in yellow.

    I ordered a trial of the Cut Grey. 3 piece Urethane just like the ZStar. Will post a review when they arrive and I can put them in play.

    Haven't seen a 'cut' golf ball since Titleist moved away from balata balls... other than those a mower spit out!!!:D Yes, will be interesting to see what you think of them. There are so many excellent balls out there today. This time of year, I'm digging into my buckets of "found" balls due to being able to lose balls in leaf piles in the fairway. Can certainly tell when hitting a Slazenger Distance or most any "distance' ball. I still have a bunch of the old, old ProV 384's. Those are a decade old... or older. Love 'em.
    We have three in our "geezer group" who have latched onto Srixon's and won't play anything else. Let's see if the Srixons get "cut" for good or you return to them.

    I'm using Bridgestone TreSoft and Costco KSig. Like them on both good and bad days.

    I use round, white golf balls. One does not seem better than another at getting lost in the woods.

    I have been using the Callaways Superhot 55 from Costco and it is a good ball.

    Some time back, I sorted through a bunch of the golf balls I had accumulated. 1.) Odd logo balls for my collection. 2.) Extremely pristine balls that I would like to play during the regular season. 3.) Balls with little or no blemishes of various and sundry brands that I could care less if I ever play or if they would get lost. 4.) Junk balls. Each time I've cleaned out the found balls in my bag, I toss them into one of the 4 lots. Just realized the #3 category has 1 1/2 5-gallon buckets of balls. Have almost a 1/2 bucket of #2. I haven't purchased golf balls in, probably, 20 years. And, should never have to purchase a golf ball again no matter how long the swings in this old body last.

    My favorite.

    I'm around 105 last time I was measured...which, admittedly, was while ago. I don't feel like a lot has changed though...I still hit it about the same distance.

    I ordered a sleeve of the gray to try them out. I also ordered 2 dozen Srixon "distance" balls to try. If I buy a "distance" ball I make sure it's medium compression per the chart I stuck in here awhile ago. Then they don't feel hard. My my true love currently is the Srixon Z-Star white. It just stands far above everything else I've used. The Z-Star XV is just a little too much for me on most swings.

    It’s weird the idea behind your golf ball can differ so much in a community like this, is one. It seems everyone finds a different ball to be its best. I used to play the TP Red until I ran out of them and couldn’t find them anywhere. Then I changed to the TP Tour which was cheaper. I still play it since I have like 5-6 dozen left. I don’t know what I’m doing free I ran out of them....

    I'm really interested in the ball market and how it is currently developing. See my article. With lots of new guerilla entrants, it's getting very interesting. I've not come across Cut before so again I'd be very interested in how it performs at that price. Snell, Kirkland, Vice and Volvik are all starting to make an impact. The traditional players are starting to feel some pain. It's hard to justify shelling out $3-4 per ball.

    On a side note, I've been gathering up quite the ball stash over the past few months. I go out at night with a UV torch and hoover up. I must have over 1000 balls collected up. Last year I sold them off for charity and got about $200. This year I have already have pre-orders for about $250. Biggest brands are Srixon, Callaway Supersofts and ProV1s.

    I've been playing Titleist since the '80s and have tried to switch a few times but always come back to my ProV1. I'm too old and set in my ways to change now.
