How bad are the cuts and cracks? Any of them unshootable?

nope check it out


edit:meant to hit preview: but of all 500 balls theres prolly 20 that wont fit without some trimming. theres about 3-4 that i assumed got ranover by a lawnmower an i dunno what happened to the first one. and took a pic of all the colored balls i got to. the 7th ball was the worst one. and most of the cracks are like the second picture and thats not bad at all. and the eighth picture was half way hollow but it still fits in my barrell.. might fill it with flour and tape over the cracks

7 out of 500 isn't bad at all.

BTW I wonder which is harder... A hole in one with a spud gun or golf club. With rifled barrels, and laser sights we could give Tiger Woods a run for his money ya think?

20 out of 500 isn't bad at all. :wink:

AS for that website... For $795.00 USD I could make you a nickel plated anti-tank weapon. I get the feeling that they are more interested in ripping off old people by selling them an extremely overpriced pneumatic that will never be allowed on their local golf course.

"The introductory price of the Golf Ball Launcher will be offered at $795 USD" Of course by introductory, I'm guessing that the "premier" model's will be well in excess of $1000 USD. No doubt there will be some old geezer that buys one to go with his matching golf cart and motor coach...

yeh, just get a job at your local golf cours to go around and grab balls, you get paid and you get to keep them, It's a win-win situation.
