==Nike Prescison Accuracy Golf Balls==
Himself's birthday has just gone by and he actually had a list as long as his arm of things he wanted. Of course seeing as I am the only one who actually gets him a gift and not just gives him money I decided to pick a few things off the list that I thought he would like best. These golf balls were one of them. He has been a avid golf fan and player now for a good few years (Far too long in my opinion) and he thinks he knows about everything to do with it.
These Nike golf balls are surprisingly expensive and I was under the impression I would be able to pick them up easily and for around £5 for a dozen or so - how wrong was I. Because it was these particular ones he wanted I had to search online for somewhere that sold them as the shops I went to didn't stock these particular ones. Luckily I found a set of 3 being sold on ebay which I paid around £15 for including postage and packaging.
The balls are the type that Tiger Woods uses and I think this is probably the reason Himself wanted to try out this particular type of ball. They are not easy to come by however and I was really rather lucky to find them on ebay selling. I am not sure if Nike have actually stopped making them or not but to find them was no easy task.
The balls came and the were housed in a neat little cardboard box which was good enough to keep them together and safe. It has the Nike logo on and stated that these balls were "High precision technology". This balls is supposedly different from other golf balls in the fact that it is made in a special way and has a firm core inside which is said to give a lesser spin and lower ball flight.
To me these balls look like any other in the fact that they are regular golf ball size, white and have those dimples all over them and of course have the Nike tick logo printed on them in black. However Himself seems to think that they are the business and work wonders. He reports that the balls themselves seem to give him more distance as well as the less spin and he feels his game has picked up slightly since using them. Of course I try to remind him that he is playing a lot more than he ever used to which is probably more beneficial than the ball itself but he does seem to think so.
Himself was really happy with his gift and although having lost one of the three since his birthday he likes to use these for his special games so that he feels he is in with more chance of winning the game.
Although they were hard to track down and I feel expensive for such a little ball, Himself says they were worth every penny and is keen to get another set of them if we can get hold of some. In his opinion they are a top ball to play with and for that reason I am happy to give a top score of 5 out of 5 stars and a high recommendation.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
many thanks for taking the time to read.
