I don't know why, maybe a good day for me or what, but I played the LS yesterday, I do not hit the ball super far, like the rest of you. I had one of my best days playing The LS is long, it stops well it does everything I was looking for.

 

Great day playing.

Same and liked the LS. Rolls out just as bit  more on chips than the srixon xv

Is it just chrome soft? Or are the X and X LS included?

 

Assuming same as before, it is an unknown mix of regular, X, and X LS Chromesoft balls.  You don't know what is in the box until you open it.  I Even in a given sleeve it could be a mix.

 

FYI, online is showing $27 without any coupon.

I think I bought 10 dozen or so, and mine were like 99% chrome soft.  Really great balls and incredible deal.  Though I get a bit of ribbing from my buddies for the "practice", it does make it easier to distinguish which balls are mine, since Chrome Soft are a pretty popular ball.

Mine were almost all Chrome Soft as well but I didn't look at these...assume it's the same this time around. I was thinking they had a "Save $5" sale tag under them in store which would be the $27 online price - $5 for the $22 total but can't remember for sure. Several balls were on sale with the $5 off tag so I could be thinking about one of them. They also had last year's ProV1/1x for $5 off as well.

Dicks has the 4 pack for $150, so I am thinking it may be worth the little extra to not have the giant "PRACTICE" text on the ball during tournament play. Dick's also has the TP5 family 4 for $150 as well. Wish they would add the ProV1 to that as well lol.

My Academy had them marked $19.97 today but when I checked out a -$6.00 promotional discount was subtracted at the register, $13.97/dozen. I bought 4, two were all CS and two were all X LS. Thank you for renewing the thread so I could find this deal.

You’re saying inside a physical store?

Curious, though, is there a “better” $27 three-piece dozen? 

Not going to say anything is particular better, but here are some to think about.  The only "better" aspect of these $30/dz deals is that you know exactly what you are getting.

 

I have never played it, but one that has gotten good reviews is the Maxfli Tour.  
It is exclusive to Dicks/Golf Galaxy:
You can get 4 dozen for $120, 2 for $70.
 
 
Srixon Z-star is another good option.  Amazon has it for $60 for a 24 pack: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09YYQGFCM/
 
Something this could also be a good option if it comes back in stock

I've played these off and on the last month or so since picking up a ton at $11 a dozen.  The only imperfection I've noticed on most is a less than straight printing of the <Chrome Soft X> line.  On most balls its slightly crooked which is enough to push these off the assembly line to the Practice heap.  A Sharpie line takes quick care of this.

I read somewhere that if one ball is "off" cosmetically, the whole batch for that run gets moved to the "PRACTICE" bin.

I jumped on the original deal and ended up liking the X LS quite a bit. Not enough to  change to it but at the price its nice to have laying around, though with 5 dozen left may have to list a few on here someday. FWIW 80% of the balls I got were X LS

Same here. I originally was disappointed because almost all my balls were the LS but it turned out to be a really good ball and now I wish they were all that model. I got a few sleeves of the regular Chrome Soft and I wasn't that impressed with those.

Yea, I didn't care for the regular Chrome Soft at all but glad I tried the LS

For those that stocked up this was the deal of the year at $11-$15 a dozen. I found these and posted in the thread that merged. Got 4 dozen, 2 for my SIL and 2 for my golf partner. Nearly all were the Regular CS. Both loved them. 

I bought 4 doz. to try.  3 1/2 doz were Chrome Soft. I love them. I am shooting lower scores right now and it's the ball. This model is stopping well on the hard fast greens I am playing. If they have the deal again I am in for 10doz.

I wonder if these Chrome Softs are the current models, or the prior ones that had balance issues?

Pretty sure the LS were the 2021 models. I have 6 dozen of the new 2022 LS and the practice box I bought were different. Practice balls are much firmer ball and the side stamps were different.

Not sure what year the Chrome Softs are, but the regular Chrome Softs from this deal have been outstanding for me.  I am hitting a ton of fairways or just off, and that is critical for me.  Other clubs doing generally what I would want or expect.  Great balls and great deal.
