Cut Golf balls

    I have to say after going through a dozen of these that, while I like them, the durability is just not as good as top-line balls. Yesterday I played a Blue for 9 holes and had to retire it because it was just beat to ****. Yeah, I bounced it of a cypress once, but the damage from my wedges and various small chunks of the cover just coming off rendered it unusable. Interestingly I played the back nine with a Grey (they're now available at the Golf Mart in Seaside, CA) and it faired much better. Perhaps there's an issue with the Blues. Dunno.



    This is not to say I'm unhappy with them. I do think they're a pretty good value, and right now my home course is so muddy and the "rough" so long that we're all losing multiple balls pretty much every round. So the fact that they're not as durable isn't really much of an issue today. Once the course dries out a bit and they can start cutting the rough again, I'll likely go back to my "summer" ball.

    Got a sleeve of cut blue to try. First thing I noticed is how easily...they cut. Full wedge shot and filleted easily.

    I hit 20 pitches with one today (a few each from 15 to 50 yds). I cleaned it up and it looks like new. You using razor blades or something?

    It was a full gap wedge, carried 120 or so. But yes, new wedge

    Same problem for me. My wedges have 30+ rounds old and countless driving range time on them.

    even at the 10dz bulk you saved what, $3 a dozen? as long as they stay a $20 dozen it’s still a great deal. let’s hope they work on the durability of the cover

    It's still a good value. It's a little more when you figure bulk buys came with free shipping. I was more just giving an FYI for those like me who live in an area where conditions will improve enough over the next month to actually start playing abs they need to pick up some balls. Buying bulk will save me $25 with the free shipping.

    True enough. Great if you want to split the 10 dozen with a friend or two. I myself have learned my lesson about ball hoarding though... I get the itch to try a new ball every once in a while, and even though I lose my fair share of balls, and the cover may not be the most durable, it would still take me a while to get through 10 dozen on my own.

    Nothing to be angry about. I played 18 yesterday with a 2017 TP5 and it was beat up by round's end. So I played 4 extra holes with a Cut Blue and it still looks like new. Just have my doubts about some of the comments folks make in these threads. Would not be surprised if they were Titleist employees.

    Played a Cut Blue yesterday and really liked it. Maybe a little more spin than I'm used to on irons, but nothing noticeable off the tee. Feels good off of the putter. For $20, heck of a ball.

    Got a round in today with the cut blue. If you need spin then go with these. I was backspinning wedges off the green which I normally get a one hop stop or hop with some roll out.

    FWIW, I didn't get any sense of anger either



    but what I'd really be surprised about is if any Titleist employee even cared about what's going on in this thread much less bothered to read it (and that's from someone who wont even buy Titleist balls). So I'd suggest being a bit more careful about jumping down that "conspiracy theory" road just because someone else's experience doesn't happen to match yours.



    Can't speak to outdoor play, but indoors, it's the final clear coat that is less durable than any other ball I've hit against the impact screen - and that list includes Snell, Bridgestone, and Callaway. The difference is easy to both see and feel and is fairly significant, so much that I wont use them indoors anymore. I'll save the rest for when I can get back on the course.

    How does the TP5 do indoors? The reason I ask is it behaves just like you describe outside. It looks like **** after a round with no trees/cart paths. Wondering if it has a similar issue to what you describe.

    Can't say, haven't tried the TP5's indoors. Generally I stick to the less expensive balls indoors because of the high wear rate. Closest I got was to play around with some Project (a)'s indoors a few winters ago. Don't remember them wearing out any faster than anything else - but I wouldn't really count on that memory as being overly reliable.

    This might help show what I've seen.  These are the three balls I've been using since I set-up my indoor hitting area.    Didn't count but roughly equal hits on them.

    I'd like to add that I also got some of these to test after watching the TXG video. I can't say I saw the large increase in iron spin. I've been hitting regularly this winter at the PGA superstore practice bays. I took only my 5-9 irons and 3 cut Blue golf balls. The balls were very roughed up within the first 30 shots with my AP2 8 and 9 iron that I have played for over a year now. So not even brand new wedges and I was cutting the cover off. I was looking for a little more spin on my long irons, didn't find it and I will be moving on. Could not play these du to the durability. I will test the Grey next and see if they are any better this weekend.

    Haven't heard much about the cut matte balls. Any love for these?

  • sosob34sosob34 Posts: 168 ✭✭

    Looks like Cut has a new golf ball on the April Conforming list. DC Cut - more dimples than previous generation. Noticed the current Cut Blue is sold out so maybe this is a new and improved version.

    I played my first round with cut blue today. A little tip for everyone, the new version is available and in stock on Amazon and qualifies for prime.

    The ball performed nicely and has a great feel. The spin is great and the ball handled the wind well. I liked the ball a lot, but the durability of the cover is a concern. My home course has a ton of water and out of bounds so even good rounds usually involve losing a ball or two. Today I didn’t lose any but wound up going through a sleeve because the covers got so torn up. Wedges make the ball dance on the greens but leave their mark on this ball. I think if it was even $5 more a dozen that’d be a deal breaker. For $20 a dozen I think this is a perfectly game-able ball.

    I've got a mixed experience with the Cut Blues. The first couple of sleeves I tried weren't the best quality. I would play one or two holes and they would look like this or worse. This specific ball was after two holes.
    I’ve never had another ball look like this so quickly. It seems the quality is inconsistent as well. Some of them haven't had a mark on them after 9 holes, some have gotten marks like this or worse after one. While I am happy with the ones that are good quality, I probably won't buy any more from them after I run out of these balls.

    FWIW, I'm using two year old SM5's (54 & 60) and new JPX900 forged (4-GW). Just my experience. Not a titleist employee either.

    I played the Cut Blue today for 27 holes and ball looks just like picture above. I have a dilemma though, outside of durability it was a very good fit for my game. Just not sure I can live with how chewed up it gets so quickly.

    So did something change on these (Blue) from year to year? I was ready to pull the trigger on some but the durability is concerning me. Having read through the whole thread, seems last year everyone loved them but there seems to be an issue now. Did the ball change? I was eyeing the Blue but after reading everything the Grey might the better choice for my game. Are people seeing this same durability issue with the Grey?
