    I very much like the looks of the ball with the alignment aid. I mark mine up all the time, so now I wouldn’t have to. Will try these out for sure.

    I have no idea if I'll play this ball long term this season or if I'll go Chrome Soft but the biggest selling point to me was actually the alignment lines. I loved how easy it made it to line up the ball vs. the traditional 1 line. I cant believe a company hasn't done it before.

    One of the things that was mentioned is that they knew not everyone would like the alignment aid. In fact, Phil mentioned that he didn't like the alignment aid on longer putts, but liked it on shorter putts. So, if you look at the picture of the balls in the box, the alignment aid was designed so you could set the ball at address and not see it.

    I like the triple track alignment, as one who struggles the most on the green due to alignment this is fantastic.

    Also using the alignment off the tee for aiming purposes I like this as well.

    The new cover is interesting, I would love to see how it performs greenside.

    I had similar thoughts on the tee game. I try to swing out to right field and have those lines could be a nice aid.

    Ttucliffhanger said 3 piece. All I've seen is just "hybrid cover" with performance between ionomer and urethane. Wonder what specific material it is though.

    It's a bold statement no question. It's only on one side of the ball for those that don't like the looks. In my limited experience I saw a huge improvement on my lines using it.

    Cheapens in? Interesting. I put a line on every ball I use and one thing I hate is when the marker comes off on my clubs because of impact. This is something I really like and it’s great if you use a line for putting as well. But then again, not surprised

    It's designed to be a blend of performance yes. I don't recall exactly what the cover material is though.

    Cheapens it probably harsh... It does make look really busy at address. I’ll reserve judgement until I buy a dozen. It would take a lot to get me to give up the Chrome Soft or Z-Star.

    Is this a lower compression ball? Like in the 60 range?

    yes, 3 lines, lines all over makes it look like some ball I bought rated AA from lost golfballs.com that some guy marked up with his pen.

    But I say all of this as just my 2 cents (since Im allowed to have an opinion) and should preface by saying I dont mark the golf balls with lines, nor do I play truvis so it may just not be for me (and thats ok)
