Why Buying Used Balls is a Better Choice?

June 6, 2022 • 5:57 pm

Golf is one of the most expensive hobbies to join. Why expensive? Here’s a secret revealed. Whether you are new to this sport or perhaps you want to get back on track after some time being away, you need to buy basic and right equipment before you take part in it. Basics would be clubs, shoes, balls, bags, tees, gloves, divot-repair tools, and head covers. Oh! And not to mention the green fee you’ll pay before you even get to the course. But that doesn’t end there, the worst and we can say the most expensive accessory in playing golf is the golf balls. Why so? Yes you can buy a dozen golf balls and it will just cost you as low as $10-$25 or as high as $50-$80, but have you ever thought that once you hit the ball it will either have a successfully tee up on any hole or near tee markers, shot into the long grass, under trees, or another secluded place on the golf course that you will not be able to find it again. It’s a struggle for beginners and even more experienced players who are losing a new ball each time they play.

The answer is: Yes, used golf balls can perform just as good as brand new golf balls. In fact, many golfers consider used golf balls to be better than brand new ones. However, you have to make sure that you select the best quality of used golf balls that are available in the market.

Tips on finding the best quality of used golf balls.

If you are looking for the best quality of recycled golf balls, then you will find a wide range of options in the market. But selecting the right product can be a difficult task for the customers. Therefore, we have provided a list of tips to help you avoid getting ripped off by bogus sellers:

  • Take the time to look at any previous reviews about the balls that you are interested in, especially those about their durability, ability to bounce back, and how much spin they produce.

  • Read the description of the recycled used balls being sold by the retailer. Used golf balls are ranked from “mint” to “good”, with mint being classed as “AAAAA” and value: “AAA”. If the performance of the used golf balls is the same as a new ball then purchase that pack.

  • As much as possible don’t buy used golf balls from a non-professional retailer.

How recycled/used balls are graded?

Golf Ball Monkey uses a proprietary and sustainable cleaning system designed to wash each golf ball and return it to its original condition. Our cleaning method assures that the recycled/used golf balls we sell are in the same condition or better than those from brand new sets of brand name balls.Moreover, we use a revolutionary technology that is environmentally friendly and completely safe for use around children and pets.

  • AAAAA (5A) / Mint graded balls are in excellent shape, and do not exhibit any scuffs or fading. These may have a small logo or pen marking, but will almost certainly be free of any serious wear. The condition of these balls is top-notch.

  • AAAA (4A) / Near Mint are high-quality balls with medium use. It may contain a slight scuff or logo, but the ball will still feel great on a stick and be suitable for all levels of play.

  • AAA (3A) / Good graded balls have been played a few holes, but overall, these are good-quality balls with a lot of play left in them. They may include a scuff, scratch, fading and/or an ink mark; anything that does not affect the integrity and performance of the ball.
