That's a good dam question! I can only ponder if a driver smashes the balls out of balance thus disturbing the flight. I think any visable defects/flaws would effect flight...

Used for sure!

Most of the time if you are going through the trouble of buying them (and not just salvaging them for free by the bucket full by walking the perimeter of your local golf course) the person selling them will not include ones that have major blemishes - such as nicks from the lawn mower.

Most of the people selling them are doing exactly what I said above - salvaging them for free by the bucket full by walking the perimeter of a golf course.

The golf balls I use have all been obtained this way and work great at approximately 1500 feet per second or faster!
