Clear Golf Balls

Anyone get their hands on and hit any of these yet?



https://www.clear-sports.com/



Very limited production. Have to be approved as a member, pay $1200 and you get 12 dozen balls, some hats

and some other stuff. Don't think I'll be applying to be a member but am curious how the balls perform and

whether any will make it onto the tour.

    This has to be a joke. $1200 for membership gets you 12 dozen balls ($100/dozen) and a "select apparel" package. They only have a hat on their site now. So you will get a hat or 2 and a t shirt, maybe a water bottle.



    And now that you are a member, you are ALLOWED to buy more balls.



    Must be run by a Nigerian prince. Where to I send my money?

    They've been around since 2016. Guessing not many people here or elsewhere have bought them. Previous WRX thread on them.

    It's legit but...........apparently, as well, you won't be approved if someone at your club is already a paying

    member of Clear. I think they're trying to out PXG PXG. There's a market for stuff like this....a super

    exclusive golf ball club, lol. I'll bet they sell out.

    Thanks grm. I didn't search much; just looked at the most recent threads and didn't see anything. I

    heard lie dog talking about them on the radio. He's a member and raves about the ball. He had a

    bunch of their shafts and told listeners about them and they sold out quickly. There is a demand

    out there for this high priced boutique stuff.............but it ain't me, lol.

    I did notice from that last thread that the price has gone up 33% in 2 years...$900 to $1200. Better get your

    memberships now everyone. They'll be $1600 in 2 years. image/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />

    Anyone wants to chip in and join?



    I wanna see what the fuss is about.. although I feel like it's going to be similar to snell or chromesoft
  • M4TTM4TT EnglandMembers Posts: 1,420 ✭✭
    Oh dear. $1200 membership. 3 piece golf ball. Crappy website and crappy logo. Looks rushed to me.



    Then I saw a photo of their golf ball in front of a......... Tyson Lamb putter.............. sealed the deal for me. Another crappy boutique wannabe company cashing in on those who desire to be apart of a 'luxury'/'sought after'/'limited' brand. I'll stick to my ChromeSoft.

    That's how I heard about them to begin with. He made it sound like he had to really twist their arms to get

    them to sell some memberships to his audience. He plays with the balls himself and claims they are better

    than any other. Something stinks in Denmark.

    PXG players will probably be interested.

    At least you get a name and company with a pretty solid history. What the bleep does "Clear" get you? Like if Callaway did this, I could see it working with lots of chrome soft lovers really wondering and wanting to get their hands on something so exclusive. But "Clear" lol?!?! C'mon.

    It's brilliant I think. Come up with an expensive gimmick and target the most gullible people on earth (golfers).

    Yeah, it’s supposed to be a great ball. But I can’t spend 80 a box. If i did I would be covered in scrapes and might drown after going into the woods and diving into water hazards to retrieve all the balls I lose.

    Not a scam. They tell you upfront what you are getting from your membership.

    I like the description : ripoff.
