Any of you detectives figure out who makes this ball? Is it just a re-badged...(fill in the blank)??

    The MG C4 has been around for like six years or so at this point, and it has changed a few times in that span. The original was supposedly identical to the Hogan Tour Deep but it changed to something else a few years ago. I don’t know who makes them though sorry.

    I remember that... the Hogan Tour Deep. I'd really like to know what they are today....

    Glancing at the conforming ball list, the specs seem most similar to older model Callaway balls.

    Concur on the older Callaway balls. However, the MG C4s are good valued balls.

    The one guy I know that plays the C4 swears by it. Another guy I play with plays their "senior" ball and loves it.

    I always thought they were made by callaway or something.

    Be sure to call him a cheater any time he gets a little smug about outdriving you (their Senior ball is non-conforming).
  • TheShaunTheShaun Members Posts: 1,103 ✭✭
    Don't know who makes it but this ball is a top performer.
  • tngolf22tngolf22 Robert Members Posts: 397
    I don't see how they could be by Callaway since they have round dimples and not the hex dimples, unless Callway makes other balls with round dimples. I've been playing the MG almost since they came out. For a urethane ball you really can't beat the price. I would be curious as well as to who really makes it. I'm sure someone out there knows but no one is talking image/secret.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':secret:' /> lol.

    My dad and I have been playing the MG for several years and he bought the senior version and played with them until he ran out of the dozen he bought. He even gave me one to try. Neither of us could really tell the difference between the senior version and the C4. I hit them a few times side by side and they never ended up more than 10 yards apart distance-wise. My dad is very competitive and would do anything to get some kind of edge in his old age. He played with them at his club and no one said anything about them being non-conforming. After his dozen ran out he went back to the regular C4 so that tells me he really didn't notice any kind of advantage. Neither of us are long hitters so maybe our swing speeds aren't enough to make notice between the two.



    That said, my uncle plays the senior so now we call him a cheater image/taunt.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':taunt:' /> lol.

    Looking at the confirming golf balls list their data is very similar to Callaway balls (Construction, Spin Rate, & Dimples).

    I sampled one Sr ball and didn't find them any different than any other distance ball like a velocity. It's a bit misleading.

    Absolute worth a try! I love them, a little further than a pro v and maybe just a tad less spin around green! a+!



    Gloves are amazing too!!

    All I know is if you hadn't tried a C4 you're missing out ! It will compete with the best of them !!

    Was looking to try these out but apparently they are out of stock on their website.

    Thanks- just ordered a dozen to try out.

    I've been playing the MG C4 on and off the last few years. It definitely is the best everyday value golf ball on the market that performs well. It's too bad they have no more yellows in stock, that ball seems to perform and is, was, probably the best yellow ball available for me. I should have ordered more than 2 dozen yellows but I guess time to play the waiting game for the yellows.



    On a side note, they have the white MG C4s in stock and currently, looks like they have some used prov1/x and chrome speed and hex chrome +.

    Do you guys find these softer than ProV's?

    If the Tour Advanced were a urethane ball you might have nailed it. Did you play the Tour Advanced? Always wondered how they played.
  • SimpSimp Members Posts: 2,908 ✭✭
    I don't believe I've played the TA. The dimple pattern looks identical between the TA and the C4. Maybe they changed cover material?
