The golf ball market is a competitive one. You’ve got your cheapies for the high handicapper, the mid-priced lot for those looking to improve our game, and the high-end balls, for those that need touch, feel and control on our shots. Hopkins Golf is entering the mid-priced range, joining the likes of the Titleist NXT Tour, TaylorMade Rocketballz, Nike One RZN, and Callaway HEX Chrome.
The new ball from Hopkins, called the ‘VL Pro’ claims to feature all of the attributes folks desire in a mid-range ball, without the expensive packaging and retail mark-up. The balls are 3-piece, USGA approved, and built for distance.
Of course, we have no idea (yet) how these balls perform in comparison to your favorite brands…but for $19.99 a dozen they may be worth a quick test. Hopkins will also ship the balls to you at no cost (nice touch).
