DSG is closing out the 2019 Maxfli Tour online (maybe in store if you're lucky) @ 2 for $45 with free shipping. I grabbed 2 doz yellow. After the good reviews of both the 19 and 21 versions on MGS, I figure it was time to try these.

I worked for DSG from 04-07, so there house stuff or "exclusives" were usually not great quality products. Really meant to be high margin products. Though occasionally there were some nice Walter Hagen branded stuff. This was also in the era that we would have 5 different TaylorMade drivers on the sales floor. Given their relationship with TaylorMade, both Pittsburgh based, I have a theory this ball may be very similar to previous TM offerings. If TM sold them the name, is it possible done technology ora patent came along with it?

 

 

So I got the balls today, and I noticed two patent numbers on the back of the box. I looked these up (I do this kind of research for work) and if you don't believe me the US Patent Office is free to use.

8,557,947 - This patent applicant was Hanson Group LLC, based in Duluth, Georgia & the current assignee is Foremost Golf Mfg.

D792,535 - Also a Foremost patent, this one is for the design of a golf ball. This patent was filed in 2016, which predates the DSG Maxfli by a few years. 

I wonder what other balls were made under this patent? I don't think it's a surprise that Foremost is the manufacturer, and I think MGS even states that in the ball lab articles. Does anyone have a list of all the major brand balls produced by Foremost?

Its not personal like that, just wrecked them doing some club building work.

Moving on, simplifying my wedge strategy going forward.

If it were South Carolina, I'd say mystery solved.  🙂

Where is Bridgestone's plant in the south?  Not remembering...

edit:  Hanson Group LLC works in specialty urethane systems.  Greenville SC is only a couple hours away (where Dunlop Sports was/is).  And Covington GA, where Bridgestone now has a presence, is pretty close...

Wife got me this for my birthday - gonna make a great golf hoodie! Slim fit, stretchy, long enough that it won't ride up, a stiff collar to block the wind, and no drawcords flopping around.

Edit: it's the UNRL Crossover II Hoodie if anyone was wondering.

That's a good thread, but I'm more interested in the Taiwan manufacturing. Given that Dick's and TM have had a relationship for years, and I was trying to figure out if TM also ever had balls made by Foremost, we know they do some mfg in Asia per the TP5/x ball labs. I was wondering if maybe TM sold a patent when they sold the Maxfli name to Dick's.

That was actually the first firm I worked at. Now I'm at Baker Hostetler.

Also, nice seeing someone else take advantage of the sale on those Maxfli!
