New reviews on old balls
« on: August 08, 2007, 02:56:45 AM »
Why would someone post a review on a ball that's probably been discontinued for two years?  I'm not naming a specific one because it happens too often.

Is it to benefit someone who has already had one, put 300 games on it, and thrown it away?

Is it so we can all go out and try to find one? (Good luck in that area, too)

Maybe it's therapy... but, this one continues to baffle me...

ROFL...I've wondered the same thing....

The other ones that trip me out are the people that review spare balls....

"It goes straight".....?

Let's combine the two...how about a spare ball that has been discontinued for over two years and people are still reviewing it.....rofl

Most balls that old have plenty of reviews already posted, but maybe I'm the only one who wondered this...

Better lock the topic before I start another war.

LOL.  But does it go straight and "hit like a truck"?  THAT'S what I want to know!

When someone reviews a ball, their impressions don't mean a ton to me unless I can see some of their other reviews of balls I have actually used. If their impressions of the older stuff are like mine, then their impressions of the newer stuff will likely be relevant to my game.

A well written, informative review is ALWAYS welcome...
