Cut Golf: Real Feedback Real Changes

Direct to consumer golf balls have been a wild arena to kick back and watch the past few years. While we still see a few newcomers jumping into the game, there are a handful of brands that have really done their due diligence to dig their feet in and offer the best products they can at some pretty jaw dropping prices.

One of those companies is Cut Golf, a name that THP’ers are quite familiar with. Through homepage articles and full forum reviews the birth and growth of Cut has been visible to all who have spent some time on our various outlets. The path that they have taken has not been without its bumps and hiccups along the way, and that is something that they not only accept, but have embraced in order to try to come out on the other side a better brand.

The Lens of Growth

I was first introduced to Cut Golf through THP in 2017 when it felt like the direct to consumer golf ball segment was at a fever pitch, and being honest, even after trying them I felt like they were just another product. The reasons for that on my end were the same feedback we saw from forum members at THP, the balls were so glossy they bordered on plastic looking, the logo was oversized and cumbersome, and something about the color just wasn’t quite right. The key here however was that performance was never the knock.

With time though, something happened, both to the product and the brand, it evolved. Not only did the next generation of releases develop some pretty dynamic breadth in terms of options but Cut stepped up and addressed almost every one of the previous critiques they had received. The finish was a higher tier look, the logo was sized better with a sharper appearance, and the overall color was simply a better white.

Better yet, the products were even better performing and THP’ers had significantly positive feedback on the Cut Blue and Cut Grey golf balls, however, there was one issue…durability. I was one who saw this issue with quite literally cutting the Cut cover on a few test golf balls, to that the company discovered it was a few batches which were the culprit, but they were not willing to simply accept that as the answer.

Real Feedback – Real Changes

Feedback matters, I know this is something said a lot in the world, but it’s honestly an absolute in any kind of production, not just golf. At times, I think when we do forum reviews at THP even the participants think that it’s just for the community, and while that is part of it, the bigger reality is much more than that.

Companies love feedback on their products, good, bad, and indifferent all matter to them as long as it is being given with a little bit of tact and without overt malice. Remember this, the best companies watch, read, and thrive on the feedback. This is precisely where Cut has impressed me the most, they have been present throughout all of the reviews and testing done on their golf balls, and not only that, they took the information which they read to heart and used it to help better navigate their path within the golf ball segment. I say this as an absolute fact, our feedback was a catalyst to some true change with Cut Golf.

Progress Never Stops

As mentioned earlier, we can look at the Cut Blue and Cut Grey if you want to see how much feedback is taken to heart by the mothership. While they nailed down that it was only a few batches that had the cover durability issues, they went through thorough steps to not just fix it but insure it wouldn’t be happening again. If that wasn’t enough, they went a step further in establishing a “100% Satisfaction Guarantee” in which if any issues arise, Cut will offer a full money back exchange.

More than that though, it is also evident now more than ever that Cut is adamant on not just offering a couple of golf balls at a pretty eye catching price, but an entire lineup of golf balls that run the gamut of golfers needs at the same “absurd value”, as the company puts it. The Blue and Grey (both $19.95/dz) remain front and center as the 4-piece and 3-piece urethane golf balls which compete with some of the best balls out there. Beyond that, there is also the Matte series ($19.95/dz) in four colors which are 3-piece ionomer golf balls, and the Red ($9.95), a 2-Piece ionomer ball, that are both at a lower compression.

The biggest example of the progress being made is the new Cut DC which is the highest priced ball Cut has produced to date ($29.95) but it is also their most technological design yet. Offering a dual-core design, the DC is a 4-piece urethane design that looks to square off fully with the top Tour level balls on the market. These aren’t things that “just another D2C company” does, this isn’t how they act. This is something much more interesting, and it is pretty cool to think that the feedback provided by the lifeblood of THP, our readers, were a key contributor to it all.

  • It’s in its own thread.
  • One thing I do want to add that I like about Cut, they’re not out telling everyone they’re the beat golf ball on the planet or trying to expose others, they’re focused on their lane and the ultimate goal is producing a solid product at what they call
    . I dig honesty like that.

    This right here! I mean $20/doz 4pc Urethane Ball that actually performs! I was a bit taken back yesterday to say the least. Is there a review thread on the Cut Blue? I’d like to share my thoughts on it

  • This article/thread comes at the right time for me; thanks! It’s time to try Cut again.
  • Ok, I missed the fact that the cover has been reformulated in the article – Saw that they identified a bad batch and that they are offering the 100% money back promise.
    Reading is still a Skill….

    Right about here, i had coffee through the nose..thank you

  • Nice write up James. I tested the Cut Grey for a few rounds last year and came away impressed for the money. I love that our feedback helped with these latest changes. I do think its one of the better DTC products out there
  • I was just on the website and they do offer test Sleeves instead of buying whole dozen, free shipping over 59 dollars
  • Early on they had a sampler pack – one sleeve each of their red, grey, blue and white offerings. They all were decent balls except the red, their low budget ball. That one was crap. I really haven’t played them since then, but the grey and blue were really good balls.

    What didn’t you like about the red? Could you compare it to another 2 piece ball?

  • As far as DTC balls go, I have tried Vice, and Snell. I think I found a cut once but it didnt really leave an impression one way or the other.
  • Great write up. I tried the blue recently and liked them quite a bit. I still want to try the Grey as well as some of their matte offerings.
  • I tried Cut about a year ago and it was ok. The DC ball might be a little firm for me. With all the different balls out in the market, and with a lot of them having the same features and or construction, the message to the player is starting to get a little muddled.
  • ordered some

  • What did you get Donny?

    I ordered some DC to try,

  • What didn’t you like about the red? Could you compare it to another 2 piece ball?

    It was like a rock. I used it on the first two holes when I was trying them out and I was hitting the ball like I had never played before. Out of frustration I swapped it out for a Top Flite Distance ball, which is not great either, and voila – I could hit the ball again!

    The Cut Red was the only ball that I had a really noticeable performance difference in a long time.

    If it works for you fine, but I’d rather go with the also affordable Grey or White, for a few bucks more.

    Thanks for the reply. I was looking for an alternative to the old Callaway Hex-Soft. I guess I’ll keep looking.

    You may want to give OnCore a look. Their Avant55 is my go-to ball right now. Srixon Soft Feel is also really good.

  • Damn! I can’t believe I didn’t see this before now. Thanks @Jman.

    ERC Soft? Supersoft? Superhot?

  • ERC Soft? Supersoft? Superhot?

    Currently using the superhot mates and supersofts when I get them cheap. They work, but cheaper is always better. Just found a boat load of hex soft at our Walmart and stocked up.

  • I, too, experienced the cut cover using one of their balls last year. To be fair, it was a ball that I had found so, I have no idea how much play it had before I found it but it looked to be pretty new. I won’t lie, it turned me off on the company.

    I also believe in second chances, so I would give them a go. Can’t beat the price, that’s for sure.

  • Nice, X! Looking forward to your longer term thoughts

  • ERC Soft? Supersoft? Superhot?

    The Superhot is a pretty good ball.

  • So I Did get a Sleeve of the Cut Grey to try. When compared to the Cut Blue (Left) the Grey does seem exactly that…more grey/off white. To be honest, only noticed when I put them next to each other. Otherwise I wouldn’t have known. What’s interesting here though is that they both use a 314 dimple pattern urethan cover according to the box But the cut Blue being a 4pc and the Cut Grey being a 3pc. Wouldn’t they use essentially the same cover? Or maybe they are and the color discrepency is a manufacturing issue? Again, to me I could care less as I would never notice unless side by side but it is something to note if it relates to cover durability.

  • @JB @Jman So i was lucky enough to get out and play 27 this fine North Texas Day, looks like rain for the foreseeable future. I had bought some Cut Dc’s as i said earlier in the thread and today was my only opportunity. DAMN ! so it was windy but this ball cut right through it. It was jumping off the club face and I was playing with a good friend, separate carts and staying our distance, but a very comfortable day. He tried it a couple of shots and loved the feel too. It spoils up nicely on the greens and felt good off the putter….and here are a couple of pics of the ball i played for 27 holes. Did not lose a ball and as jamn said, they listened and the cover half up very well. I did not hit any cart paths, but i bounced it off a couple of trees. But for playing it 3 nines, it look damn good

    Thanks for the feedback and awesome longevity.

  • yes, this ball held up well, I did take a few shots with a second ball from time to time from the tee. Hit A PROV and B330. There was not a whole lot of Distance Difference. I hit a couple into the wind and some in cross winds. I hit a couple of 280+ droves with the Cut and most were around 260 +- 5 yds.
