    I would like to know you guys opinions on the Volvik 51 ball. They have been pretty consistent for me. I am curious about you guys experiences with them.

    I play with it. Started using it primarily because it has the same speed (3.0) as L71 Nike 20 XI-X Balls I used to play with for a long time.

    Probably one of the best cost-effective products in the pro shop. Very consistent in overall (both virtual and RL Volviks).

    The only thing you gotta be aware is that it might not be suitable for courses with lots of undulations, severe ups & downs in elevation (such as Wolf Creek) as the ball tends to overspin occasionally unless carefully (almost immaculately) controlled. You'd better be extra cautious when using full backspin in particular.

    Other than that, it's a great ball with no doubt! Strongly recommended.

    Are we allowed to say "colored" now?  Or would "dually pigmented" be better? 🤔

    It'll be called VIVID COMBI.

    The manufacturer still sells the good old monochromatic version, though.

    Ah, there would be no excuse for price increase then. Didn't think it through. My bad!
