    Srixon Marathon Soft Balls

    Not come across these balls before
    Found one at The Zoo yesterday, played with it and, have to say it wasnt bad at all.

    Was in AG in Slough later, taking back some leaky shoes (see another thread) and mentioned them to the bloke, who also had never heard of them

    Hmmm.... A mystery

    Got home, google search , cant find any reviews, balls are on sale at clubhouse golf and various Amazon outlets at £9.99 a dozen which puts them in the Callaway Warbird category ....But they feel better than that.

    Anybody else come across this ball in their travels?

    Thanks, but I know where to obtain them, was wondering if anybody had used them and what they thought of them.

    They're less popular now they've changed their name to the Srixon Snickers Soft Ball.

    Re: Srixon Marathon Soft Balls

    My mate played with them yesterday..... he's normally and AD333 player, with Soft feel balls in the winter. Said he'd got them cheap and he suspected they were an import from somewhere. Said he couldnt tell the difference at all and quite likes them...... then he played to 12, so they cant be too bad.

    I've seen them in shops (probably Sports Direct as mentioned above), just assumed they were cheap rubbish and ignored them really.
