New Snell Golf Balls in 2018

kclayton16kclayton16 Members Posts: 22 ✭✭
Got email from Snell Golf saying there will be 2 new balls in 2018 and existing MTB inventory is being discounted. Anyone have any idea if there will be 2 brand new balls or just new versions of GET SUM and MTB balls?

    I may be wrong, but pretty sure is an improvement 3 piece MTB and a new 4 piece ball.

    cant wait to try the new mtb ball, will play it head to head against the ksig

    From what I recall, the original 3-piece MTB is getting a little distance improvement. He is also coming out with a 4-piece ball. I like the performance of the MTB but I already have 3 1/2 dozen to go through before I will be in a position to try either of the new balls.

    Just speculating--and hoping--that maybe one or both urethane balls will be available in yellow! I'm guessing no for the cost reasons Snell described here last year. But the yellow ball market is sizable.

    In an interview with ****, dean snell discounted the level of interest in yellow balls and mentioned that they're expensive to make for such a small market.

    I will be interested in both the new MTB and the 4-piece. The original MTB is still as good as anything else.
  • JBirdUtJBirdUt Members Posts: 360 ✭✭
    Wish I would've waited one more week. Just ordered six dozen MTBs.

    Love the MTB and can't wait for the new stuff to come out. Great value and performance versus any of the others on the market.
  • monks66monks66 Members Posts: 587 ✭✭

    Yeah, the current products are really very good. If I can squeeze a little more distance out of the MTB, wow.

    I don't know if Dean will read this, but is there any reason we don't get the same discounts/deals as the guys in the U.S do?

    Hello... the distributors we use to sell the balls run their regions with their separate plans.. the discounts we have on the balls here in the US are primarily due to reducing the year end inventory, and prepare for the launch of the new balls that are coming soon. As you can imagine, we carry quite a bit more inventory than the distributors. Most of them planned their business to liquidate what they had, and are also getting ready for the new golf balls... So volume in the US is the primary reason why you see these discounts... margins for the US are easier to do this versus margins in the other regions as well... hope this helps...

    New golf balls will be two versions... MTB BLACK and MTB RED.... The MTB BLACK will be upgrade to the current MTB, and the MTB RED is a design based on feedback from everyone that has posted testing and results... so thanks for the feedback.. .The golf balls have tested out excellent and we will be releasing the full details of the balls (hint: 3pc and 4pc) balls soon, with a pre-order date of Jan 15th... We are alittle at the mercy of the shipments arriving (busy time of year) so hope to be able to send all orders in Feb... we will also have a test pack for these two models, so if unsure, you can get two sleeves of each model to test out on your own... thanks for the patience and continued support...

    I just wish I didn't have 3 1/2 dozen of the original MTBs to work through!
  • taz757taz757 Members Posts: 461
    So, if I've read correctly ...



    MTB Black = TaylorMade Black TP/LDP

    MTB Red = TaylorMade Red TP/LDP



    If that's the case, I may have to consider dumping all the rest of the balls in my closet and buy cases of the MTB Red ...

    The TaylorMade Black TP/LDP was one of my all time favorites, though only slightly better performance for me than the Red. I could play either for the rest of my golfing life.

    I still have a lot of the MTB left so I won't be ordering any of the new balls anytime soon, but when it's time to order I will be staying with Snell. Oh wait, a testing pack?

    Sounds good. Hopefully there will be some places out there doing ball reviews so we can get some numbers and see how the balls behave differently!
