    This was the original version. It's smoked sirloin and very tender. They use a marinade and if I remember it was soy and Worcestershire.

    While I disagree with your comment on being established, I agree with a lot of what you stated. but like anything else, some say a kia performs as good as a bmw for half the price. its all personal preference. for me, its mostly about feel, no bias towards any one brand Good post though. I definitely agreed with a majority of what you said




    Well we can ceratinly agree to disagree when it comes to tech and being "established".



    Funny you should bring up Kia. There is no Kia that performes as well at 1/2 the price.



    However, you may want to read up on the Stinger and how it compares to an equally priced beemer. Especially since Kia stole BMW's M division chief and Audi's design chief, the outcome of which is the stinger..reports by all reviews are glaringly possitive...
    Stinger GT2 owner here. Car is awesome. Pricing is a bonus.




    Very smart choice of car. What color?



    Almost see the Stinger as the K-sig of cars!

    I’ve been playing the last couple rounds with the K4 and the Chrone Soft. I prefer the K4. For me, it is longer with no lack of needed spin around the greens. I’m not a high feel player so I really don’t notice any difference there either. FWIW, my hcp is 7.

    For me they are similar. Did you play the 2018 CS or the earlier version? I am referring to the earlier one as I haven't tried the new CS yet.

    They got rid of Polish Sausages around here; not a big deal, since I go with the normal hot dogs, but...still.

    I should have some K3 / Ktrey's sitting on my portch when I get home. I am really curious to give them a try.
  • DavePelz4DavePelz4 A golf course in the Chicago area.ClubWRX Posts: 24,250 ClubWRX
    Looks like there are still KTrey's in stock. Maybe this is going to be THE ball going forward?



    P.S. Chef's Cut Beef Jerky is 2 thumbs up...and that's coming from a big jerk(y guy).

    I'm having a hard time finding a "definitive" review of the 3-piece. Is there anyone who can point me to some good reviews of the 3-piece ball? (User or publication review).

    Some like it to the Chrome Soft, however I thought it was closer to the Q-Star Tour and AVX.



    We are all different so your experience may differ. Either way its a great value just might not suit your eye.

    K3 is solid, but not spectacular.



    From 60 yards in, you'd never know you were playing a $1 ball.



    Everywhere else, I feel like I'm giving a little something up. I'm talking what looks like 5 yards off the driver, and a mid iron shot bleeding just a little more than you think it should in the wind. Maybe it doesn't matter, but it's in my head.

    Well said.



    Reminded me of a ProV1 circa 2005-2010. Spins a ton off the irons and wedges, great short game control, not as long as some other balls.

    I have been switching back and forth between the KS4, KS3, and Z Stars. The KS3 by far gives me the most spin off of my wedges. Where the KS4 and Srixon will hop and come back a few feet, there have been a few instances where the KS3 spun back 15-20 feet. I haven't seen anything like it. It is especially frustrating to have your pitch mark a few feet from the hole only to face a 25 foot putt. Spin is cool and all, and it's neat to see a ball suck back like that. But, it's just to excessive for me. It doesn't seem to be consistent either.



    While a fine ball for the money, it just isn't what I am looking for. I believe it was you that called it a spin monster. I think that sums it up really well. I personally do not remember playing a ball that spun as much as the KS3. I don't know what the #'s are on it as I don't have LM access. So, I don't know if I am giving up a handful of yards on my drives or anything. But, after watching the action it gets on the green, I wouldn't be surprised if it was spinning like a top off of the driver as well.

    Big fan of the KTrey. The only time when I've seen excessive spin is on shots into the wind. Then it does seem to balloon a bit. Never saw that with the KSig though.

    I hit a half dozen drives on Trackman with the K3 right around the time it came out. Spin was a touch higher on average (maybe 150-200RPM) than the Chromesofts we use at my lessons. Yardage and smash were almost identical.



    On the course, I’ve just never hit a bomb. Could easily be user error though.

    Could be user error. I play both the 3 piece and the 4 piece, and my best drive of the year was around a 340 yard bomb with the 3 piece. I've noticed no real difference in distance between the two, but the 4 piece backs up way more on the greens for me. Both are amazing balls, especially when you factor in the price.
