well,   it's hard to say how they will do on the course,  but here in the apartment playing   2 different types of shots vs. a prov1x  i have sitting around


feel of softness on forged sand wedge- about same (difference not discernible for the following shots)

mash chip n run type shot... fly 2-3 feet, roll 4-5 feet    prov1x stops about 4 " shorter


little 'flipper' baby pitch... fly 3 feet, roll about 3-4 feet.  prov1x stops about 6-8" shorter.

I am using them and like them more with every outing using them. Incredible for two-piece ball, and pretty cheap at WalMart.

Finally bought some of these, and played them last night.

Initial response.  I'm diggin' it.  Great feel, nice flight.


Weird side effect, I don't know if it's the compression, or just the distance of the ball, but I completely flew 4 greens, all with 8 iron or below.  I never do that, I'm the king of coming up short.

I like that.  I adjust for about a 10 yard/club difference, and hit 4 straight GIR.

The ball isn't just long........The feel is great.  The are soft.


stroh seal of approval.   Not bad on the pocketbook either.  Paid 16 bones a dozen at The Evil Empire.

FYI, as far as I can tell, the ball is supposed to be called "Fifty," not "fifty-fifty."  The name comes from the compression; the name everybody seems to be using came from what appears to be simply a logo design. 


I'm jus' sayin.'

Thanks.  Too bad.  The name as I knew it was a perfect fit, and descriptor for my chances when stepping up to hit one.  Oh, well.
