Golf Gear Review
Does it surprise you that Knetgolf has enjoyed its’ greatest success since the recession hit? If you think about it, that news shouldn’t be shocking. Money is tight, the company offers “like-new” Titleist, Nike, Bridgestone, Callaway and other brands at half the price of new balls.
"When the recession hit, our business spiked dramatically," says Gary Shienfield, CEO of Knetgolf. "Most customers are now repeat buyers, realizing they can play Tour-grade balls without paying $45 or more per dozen." And projections are that 2010 sales will eclipse last year by 30 percent.
Knetgolf (founded in 1995) is the world's leading provider of pre-owned, brand-name golf balls, offering Tour-grade Titleist, Callaway, Nike, Bridgestone and other brands. The refurbished balls are graded Mint, "A," "B" or "C" and offered at half price (of new balls) or better directly to the golf public.

Knetgolf reports its 2010 sales of recycled and refinished premium, pre-owned, brand-name golf balls are on pace to eclipse last year by 30 percent.
Driving the company's market-leading success are "like-new" Titleist, Nike, Bridgestone, Callaway and other brands at half the price of new balls. With golfers losing more than one billion balls yearly and 4.5 each round on average, according to industry estimates, Knetgolf saves purchasers more than $1 per ball.

If the lost-golf-ball-retrieval entrepreneurs have their way — and they are hard at work wherever North American golfers are spraying their shots hither and yon — no lost golf ball will remain in water for long. They reclaim millions of golf balls every week. It is a vast industry that ranges from teenagers, who wade into ponds after school to find and resell balls at 50 cents apiece, to someone like Gary Shienfield, whose Toronto-area company will sell more than 20 million reclaimed golf balls this year. Sales at Shienfield’s Knetgolf.com jumped 25 percent last year.
The Boston Globe
Gary Shienfield, whose Knetgolf.com will sell more than 20 million reclaimed golf balls this year, said the average golfer loses a ball every four holes.
The most commonly resold ball is also the best-selling new ball: the Pro V1 from Titleist, based in Massachusetts.

On average, golfers lose 4.5 balls per round and studies show they can take centuries to decompose," says Gary Shienfield, CEO of Knetgolf. "By collecting, processing and reselling these balls, we are helping the consumer while positively impacting the environment."
All Knetgolf balls are thoroughly tested, inspected and backed by a money-back guarantee. This aggressive pricing, superior quality and excellent service led to the purchases of more than 20 million balls from the company in 2009.
Knetgolf is showing its commitment to environmental conservation by offering customers an additional 20 percent off orders of the company's premium refinished golf balls.

I’ve got to give props today to Knetgolf, the Toronto-based pre-owned brand name golf ball distributor, for the success it’s had thus far in 2010. If you’re an American reading this spot you might better know Knetgolf as GolfBallsOnly. That’s the name of the wholesale division.
