So I bought a bunch of Champions and a six pack of Mint''s. So for the Price is it worth it? Honestly I am unsure so:1. Quality Product2. Made in the USA3. Softer ball4. Feels slippery out of the plastic when you open them almost greasy5. Gets dirty quicker and stays dirty so harder to find in the yard6. The more you play with it, the more it has a normal to better grip and feels less slick7. It is about twice the price or better of the cheapos 8. 6 balls for pretty much 30 bucks or 14, the decision is yours. That is as honest of a review I can leave. ECD is a great company, they make awesome products, they are great guys and and are charitable so the extra money may be worth it. I will say I have had a Champion split on me from dinging a post, but not one issue with a mint and I bought them all at the same time.
