After cleaning and testing we are able to sort the balls into one of five categories, Grade B being what we consider average and the starting point, and either go up in quality to Grade A or Mint or down in quality to Grade C or D.
Mint quality is the best available grade. These balls are like new, they will show no or very little wear and will maintain the original color and sheen. These will include small player( sharpie or felt pen) markings, team and corporate logo. It is hard to believe they are used! Also known as One-Hit Wonders. X-out and practice balls are NOT included
Grade A (Above Average)
Near mint recycled golf ball will have slightly noticeable imperfections, generally how a new ball would look after less than 18 holes of golf and will include scuff marks. There may be slight discoloration and minor cosmetic blemishes, which does not compromise the flight characteristics of the golf ball. These balls will include small player(sharpie or felt pen) markings, team and corporate logo’s. These balls will not include X-OUT or Practice.
Grade B (Average)
Very playable, good condition, may include moderate surface blemishes, slight scuffs, minor discoloration which will not affect the trajectory, distance or flight path of the ball. Ball will not have cuts. Higher grade Practice and X-OUT models may be included. These golf balls will include player(sharpie or felt pen) markings, team and corporate logo. How a new ball would look after a few rounds of golf. Very playable, good condition golf balls.
Grade C (Below Average)
These golf balls are cosmetically challenged, the AA grade used golf ball may look worn, discolored, blemished and scuffed. These are great for beginners, first timers or they can be used as practice balls for the avid golfer. These balls will include player(sharpie or felt pen) markings, team and corporate logo. How a ball would look after many rounds of golf.
Are very cosmetically challenged. Will have major surface blemishes, major discoloration, and may even be cut or out-of-round. We do not recommend playing a round of golf with these but they are perfect for practice or hitting where you do not need to get them back!
