I would be curious to give these a try.  I have about 10 dozen of the 50 Elite balls that I got from our marketing guy at work and have yet to try them out.

The previews of these have been pretty stellar

Will they be available as FG Tour and FG Tour X again this year? I played the FG Tours for quite awhile last season and liked them, but I think the FG Tour X would have felt a little better.

Only one version of the ball, and it's a good one. Significant improvement over last year. I think that a lot of people will enjoy this ball.

Curious, I enjoyed the FG Tour last year.  Only 'complaint' I really had with them was that *I* seemed to be capable of making them turn far more than the Penta TP5 / Lethal I usually played with.

FG Tour was one of the nicest surprises of 2013 for me. Hopefully the "one ball" concept doesn't ruin a good thing.

In what sense? Did you play the Tour or the X?

I won a dozen of these at a tournament in August and still have one left. What a great ball!! Love the control, great wind ball. Soft feel makes every shot feel like you just pured it, but the distance control is still good throughout the bag, and plenty long off the driver. W/S brought me around with interest in their gear again with this ball.

Now if only the new woods didn't have a hosel on them the size of a tree trunk. Oh well...

Usually play the Elite 50 early in the year -- for the price it's one hell of a golf ball!

Yea it did everything but go in, swear that cup thought it was hot Saturday night having a ball that close...

 

BTW, you also air mailed a green by 15yards with one of those tennis balls! Crazy speed pockets! Not like i fared any better that round.

 

On a serious note, I picked up a box of '13 FG Tour X that I'm waiting to put in play when warmer weather hits. I'll try to pick up a sleeve of these to compare.

Paul- Am curious as to what your impressions are after using the new FG Tour ball on your Key West trip. I have some on the way. I gamed the FG Tour X most of last season and was happy with it except I missed the FG Tours softness around the greens and putting. I've mentioned it before but the old FG tour spun more and got mushy off the tee in hot weather. The X solved both those problems but at the price of greenside feel.  I'm curious if the new version retains the good feel and spins less. The tour ball pricing suprises me a bit, but if it performs I'll go with it.

I also used the Callaway Hex Black and Pro V1x last year...Do you feel it's comparable?
