    Hi all I’m Juan aka thegolferdude I’ve got a cool update today. Not sure if anyone has cut these balls open yet. I’ve uploaded pictures of the inside of the tour and tour x ball. Both look to be a 4 piece ball. The tour has a blue core and the tour x has an orange core. Thanks for checking out this testing update.

    Hi everyone my name is Juan aka thegolferdude here to give an update on my testing of the Calloway tour and tour x balls. 
     
    Feel and sound:
    I’ve alternated hitting these ball for a week now  both ball are preforming well. I can pretty much tell which ball is being hit by sound.  The tour x is definitely louder little firmer feeling.  The tour is has a nice softer sound and feels a bit softer. I prefer the tour ball so it wins this round.
     
    Durability:
    I have been hitting these balls ofo of a mat into a net in my garage.  That being said the only damage to the balls is from the strikes, 3,7,9 irons used. The tour ball is definitely holding up p better than the tour x for some reason. Check out the pictures below. Overall  think both balls are holding up better than others have in my home setup.  Durability test the tour ball wins this round.
    Putting
    i like how these balls roll, I was surprised they had a very similar sound and fell tho. I had a difficult time telling which was which. Putting is great with both balls on an indoor putting surface. Putting test is a tie.
    Weather 
    The weather has been crappy lately hopefully I’ll get to do some  outdoor test soon. Stay tuned for those test. Later this week i plan on getting some simulator data for y’all.

    So far I’ve hit both balls the same amount of times, probably 50ish hits each. The tour x is starting to show some scuff marks where as the tour ball still look new. As of now the tour ball has the lead of my favorite ball of the 2.  I like the sound when hit and the durability is better.

    Appreciate the thoughts so far from all the testers! 
    How do you find the durability so far?

    Hi everyone, I had a chance to hit the tour and tour x for about 30 minutes last night.  First thoughts are the tour sounds more muted when hit and the tour x is noticeably louder clicker sounding. I like the sound of the tour better, that being said it seemed like the tour x popped off the face of the club better.  I did not use the launch monitor during this session or any other ball, just want to get a fell for these 2 models. Look for more updates from Juan aka thegolferdude.

    Hi everyone my name is Juan aka thegolferdude, I’m a first time tester.  I just got my box of Callaway balls today, I’m super excited to get to test these out.
