    Talking Condor "S" ball. any one heard of em.

    So my grandma had a box of all my grandpa's old golf stuff. I now have more old golfballs than i know what to do with. mainly titleist from 95-96 ish. But i found a box with Condor "s" balls and ive never heard of em. they are supposed to make any par 4 under 400 yards reachable with a driver.

    Anyone have experience with these. im curious if they are worth a shot. Probably not but the brochure makes them seem amazing

    I bet JB can find some info about them. I seem to remember playing those when I was a kid, like in the mid 70's, lol

    Here ya go.

    The Condor "S" golf ball is "the ball that flies too far" This non-conforming golf ball's extraordinary distance comes partly from a revolutionary new dimple design that keeps the ball aloft longer and a secret change in the core that makes it rise faster off the clubhead.

    here is a review showing because of the dimple design they flew 13 yards further.

    A buddy had a dozen of these and all they acheived for him were more drops from lost balls.About the same results I get with Callaway x hots.

    "The ball that flies too far; could obsolete some golf courses."

    All those would get me is 13 yards further into the woods or tall grass! I take a cart, I really don't want to walk any further! hehe

    In the review, it said the S ball went 22yards farther while the A ball went 13. Thank goodness my grandpa left me the S balls

    I thought the ball was too small to be conforming. I remember them from about 10 years ago.
    In my Ping Hoofer or SUMO Staff Bag:

    Str8-Fit Dymo 9.5* Axis Stock S
    Burner 15* Stock S
    Burner Rescue 19*, 22*, 25*
    CCi Irons 6-PW
    54.14 Spin Milled Oil Can
    Scratch JLM*SFU 58*
    Scotty Cameron Newport Beach
    One Tour D

    One open spot, leaning toward a 17* wood.

    I found one out on the course once. I wasnt very impressed with it. It was as hard as a rock, I got very little spin from it and it had very poor putting feel.
    Im sure its great for distance, but distance aint everything...
    What is my C-130 cart bag?
    Woods: JPX 850 11.5*, JPX 850 15*
    Hybrid: VKTR 19*
    Irons: Apex Plus 4-PW
    Wedges: chipper, TK 52* and 58*
    Putter: FGP
    Ball: Pro V1
