I am using only starter balls till now but finding it more and more difficult to compete and ding properly. Buying expensive balls that last only a limited time is not something I want to do or consider.
What I would consider is to RENT BALLS for a limited time as a month, 3 months or a year.
This means you pay a fixed amount a period and can play the ball for exactly that period.
If WGT would implement this for their own WGT balls exclusively, I think a lot of players would rent these WGT balls in stead of not buying anything or stop playing.
My suggestion for a month renting is 3 times the regular purchase price.
So a sleeve of WGT GI3-S costs 99+, Renting them for a month would be 297+.
(3 month renting will be 2,5 time the regular price (99 x 2,5 x 3 = 742,5 cr) and year renting will be twice the regular price (99 x 2 x 12 = 2376 cr).
If players quit playing after renting balls or play less as they normally would do, WGT would have their prepayments and steady income so it's a win situation for them also.
Renting will keep players at WGT as they prepaid already.
The topplayers will probably buy the other, none-WGT balls anyway (If they are better as WGT balls!), so this renting solution will probably also not harm their business model on the more expensive balls.
I hope WGT will consider implementing this renting option.
@WGT. I don't have to be paid for this free advice, just give me a lifetime free usage of the ball of my choice and other equipment.😁
