Summary: Given to me as a X-Mas gift. It sat on the puter desk for about 7 months till I pretty ran out of my main lineup of models. "Oh what the heck"...First place I tried them out was on the putting greens. OMG...not a rock...or a ping ping ball. Well I'll be. it surpased my expectations right then. Granted that this is still a Pi-Nuckle down to it's soul, however, this was a fantastic move forward to the softer side.
