What’s the Difference Between Recycled and Refinished Golf Balls?

Are Used Golf Balls Ever Waterlogged?
A lot of people don’t buy used golf balls because they are concerned that the balls will be waterlogged, but there is nothing to worry about. Before the year 2000 or so, balls included rubber cores that would become waterlogged, but since then, golf balls have been manufactured with solid plastic cores that are not affected by water.
Are Recycled Golf Balls Really That Much Cheaper?
Yes! Even for used golf balls that are in mint condition (like new), you’ll be spending about half the price that you would on brand new balls.
Is it Better for the Environment?
Yes, buying used balls is a more eco-friendly option. Golf balls are manufactured using plastics in large factory facilities. Choosing recycled golf balls means you are not contributing to the energy used and waste produced to make new balls.
