    If your not someone who marks the ball i wouldnít expect this to appeal to you (and thatís ok). I was skeptical of the three lines and being different colors but once i got to putting with it I felt lost without it going back to something else

    I am of the same opinion. When I have to mark a ball for tournament play, it is just a 1 dimple dot with a silver sharpie by the ball number.

    Meh. The three lines isn't for me. Brings back memories of some of the older Bridgestone balls (IIRC) that had some two line arrow thing going on. I actually found it harder to line up. I'm a single line guy. And honestly, last year, I stopped lining up with the alignment aids on the ball. I was getting far too technical with it.

    I don't mark a line on the ball, so to me this is not appealing at all. I understand the purpose and it makes sense for some, but just looking at the initial pics, it is just a turnoff.

    I got a chance to play a round on the GCQuad with a pre-production version of this ball and itís really good! The feel was great and the performance around the greens just as good as the ProV1s that are normally in the hitting bays. Iím confident that this ball will be my new gamer in 2019!

    Itís a fantastic putting aid! I enjoy having something like this on a golf ball.

    Only $5 less per dozen than CS/CSX? Seems a bit high to me, but I'm sure Callaway knows marketing and their customer base more than I do!

    As someone who has gotten up there in years and has become somewhat "distance challenged", I enjoy the fact that I can now play a "distance" ball with soft feel. I mainly use alignment aids on the tee, not so much on the greens so the fact that the alignment lines are only around 1/2 the ball gives me all the options. As far as spin, I think I am, fortunately, good enough to compensate for differences in spin between this ball and the CS on both full shots and those chips and pitches around the green. I have a significant number of Callaway reward points and can't wait until they show up in the Rewards store so I can stock up on them! I can't ignore the tremendous increase in distance I get with this ball and the Epic Flash driver alone due to a little thing like alignment lines.
