Rubber Golf Balls

Unread postAuthor: thedeathofall » Sat Jun 20, 2009 8:56 pm

So I was walking through Target, and I stop at the sports section to see what kind of bike pumps they have. (Word of advice, the pumps from target SUCK!) As i was roaming, I stumbled upon a neat surprise. A pack of 36 RUBBER golf balls. They are made of soft foam rubber that can compress. They look similar to these.
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000GK7I6S/ref=asc_df_B000GK7I6S831130?smid=A2UDNPGKURPVSY&tag=dealt287489-20&linkCode=asn

With my last few topics being about GB blowforward breeches, I found these as a bit of a treat. Unfortunately, they do cost $20 per pack at Target ($0.55 each), but if you take care of them, they might actually be worth it.

They'd definitely be good for testing purposes. As for doing any damage they'd be completely useless.

The Amazon link even said they were meant to be flight restricted.

Haha I assumed when I said foam rubber you guys would understand they would be used when it is too dangerous for a normal GB. They are made from the same high density foam stuff as the pocket vortex, so "flight restricting", is more like flight extending. They will fly fine.

Did you know that the cheapest brand new golf ball (normal ones) I have found cost almost $0.65 each? These are cheaper than an actuall golf ball.
