These are balls that come from various manufacturers from which we do not get enough to sell on their own. Some are Tour-quality models that we just donlt see very often, some are of just as high a quality but have less marketing clout and/or only regional distribution, and some are second-tier brands.
In any case, these balls are excellent for beginners and intermediate golfers, youth golfers, practice balls, range balls, lesson balls, etc.
This is a way to get the most bang for your buck, and also to try several brands of ball. Who knows, you might find a new favorite!
About Recycled Golf Balls:
Golf Gear USA recycles all of its own golf balls in our Pleasanton, California facility. Please do not confuse our recycled balls with used golf balls offered by others, which are merely retrieved and shipped to you. We take in hundreds of thousands of golf balls each year from our team of ball retrieval specialists and from outside contractors. Many balls are lost in deep rough or trees lining fairways, and some come from lakes and ponds on courses. Still other balls come direct from factories in the form of excess inventory, custom logo overruns, etc.
First our used balls are cleaned using state-of-the-art custom ball cleaners that are each capable of processing nearly 60,000 balls per hour. Some balls are separated out for more thorough and specialized treatment and then cleaned again. After cleaning, all balls are sorted by brand and model, and then individually examined and hand-graded according to our rigid quality criteria. Some are subjected to the entire process again, and many others are rejected at this point, and they are either sold commercially for range use or discarded entirely.
Next, balls selected for your order are evaluated to ensure on-course performance that is nearly identical to new balls, as well as for the best possible appearance, and then packaged and shipped directly to you.
Studies have repeatedly shown that used golf balls and superior recycled balls like ours consistently perform from 99.7% (Mint Condition) to 97.4% (Practice Grade – our lowest!) as well as brand new balls, but you will pay only 20% to 50% of the price of new balls! Why would you ever pay as much as 500% of our price to get as little as 1% for your money?
