We were kindly given two ball stamps from stampyourballs.com. It only seemed fair to test them out. So two Golfhackers went to Northop Golf Course in some pretty wet conditions to give the stamps a real test.
“I’ve got a present for you to test out.” I told my fellow hacker. Needless to say he looked delighted to get his hands on the stamp. We immediately gave our balls a good stamping. “Dries quickly that!” he said to his surprise. So far so good.
The course was in good shape considering we were testing on a chilly, morning dew day in January. The course was wet...an ideal test to see if the ink on the stamp would fade quickly. It didn’t. The picture of the ball was taken on the 9th hole and as you can see the stamp was still visible despite cleaning the ball on a few occasions.
Unfortunately a stray shot from yours truly meant that the ball was lost on the 12th. Another ball and another stamp. As for my playing partner, well his ball and stamp was still holding strong. The fact that the ink only began to fade slightly in these wet conditions is testament to the product. On a dry summer day (without losing your ball) you can see why the product is highly rated.
The product comes with over 100 different stamp designs so you can pick your own to make it more individual. Perhaps for Golfhacker, we can finally throw away our Sharpies and use this little beauty instead.
We used the Classic Stamper. Priced at £5.99. You can get three stamps for £15. A New Silver stamp is also available at £14.99. Although we have not tested that one yet if the quality of the Classic is anything to go by...you won’t be disappointed.
