Has anyone tried any of the new Maxfli Tour series balls? I was wondering how they performed compared to other tour quality balls. I think I'm going to pick up a sleeve each of the Tour and HT Tour, to see how they perform compared to my Cally ix.

Are they a lot cheaper? If you are playing well with the ix, how much do you save per ball by switching?

 

(questions I always ask myself when looking a new balls)

They run $30/dozen. I love the Cally ix, but they are discontinued and the new i(s)run about $42/dozen. At $1 a ball, it would be quite a bit of savings, as I usually only get 9 holes out of my Cally before the cover is completely shredded. I still have a stockpile of the ix, since they are selling at $25/dozen (if you can find them), but I'm always up for trying new things, especially when they are cheaper.

Makes sense. Wasn't thinking about the discontinued status of the ix.

Did you look at the Wilson FG?

I play them, they are long, and seem straighter off the driver than Prov1's. With the deals Dick's offers (usually running a free 6 pack with purchase, or $5 off a dozen), plus the trial 6 ball packs they are worth a shot. Pretty good reviews on the Dick's site too

How do they spin around the greens? Do they feel soft?

Around the greens I get comparable action to a prov1. As far as feel goes they have 3 different compressions, so 3 different feels. The Tour is the mid compression and my first preference, it feels similar to a Prov1, and better than a Callaway. The XD is the higher compression for higher swing speeds, it is a little firmer. I thought it felt good, but I don't swing hard enough for that one. The Tour LC (low compression) is the interesting one, personally I like it the least of the three, but I know a 3 or 4 guys who started playing it and now swear by it.

 

The most noticeable thing when I first started hitting them was how hot they are off the face of the driver. I had been playing an NXT Tour, and when I switched to the Tour I honestly lost track of the first few drives. The ball really jumped off the face.

I bought a dozen of the Tour LC (thought I was buying the Tours, but apparently I wasn't paying attention). They were $41 at Dicks... and I finally found what I was missing out on about Dicks... nothing. There are SO many people right about that place, but I digress.

 

Anyway, I like how they feel- especially full shots with irons. It's not too "clicky", but it also doesn't feel like you're hitting a warm sweet potato, either. Spin-wise, the LC's aren't too different from the Callaway Hot Bites... which is what I feel they're most comparable to. They're solid all-arounders, but they won't make you jump for joy (well, I didn't, anyway...). If they were in the $30-$35 range, they'd be a solid offering.

 

I might give the Tours a go, but I don't know if I want to go to Dicks again...

As my swing speed is 85-90 mph, I picked up two dozen of the LC's when you got 6 free with each dozen and I had Dick's coupons at $3/dozen off plus I had $20 in Dick's rewards, so I got three dozen for $40 total. I liked them as compared to the Callaway Tour iX I had been using....although they were not as long.

 

I then tried the Maxfli HT when they were 2 doz for $30....they are a 4 piece ball with a surlyn like cover, which means they roll on the green. Once I got used to them rolling out somewhat, I liked them better than the LC's

With these selling buy-one-get-one-free for $40, I picked up two dozen of the standard Tour balls. The cover feels fantastic and the flight off the driver and spin on the wedge are as good/better than any ball I've ever used.

 

I've also bought a dozen MG Tour C4 balls and am planning to do are more exhaustive comparison once I have some more free time.

Never really cared for Maxfli balls before. Did have a set of their Revolution Black Dot irons I loved once though. Hopefully someone can review them soon and let us know if they're any good. I stumbled on the MG balls at $20 a dozen, and if these are good, maybe they'll be another competitor. Course I usually end up buying premium balls on sale when the new models come out anyway.

I bought the demo 6 pack and played the Tours, they were a good ball, somewhere between a Pro-V and a Nike One imo, not quite as soft feeling as a Pro-V around the greens, but good performance on full shots and softer and spinnier than a Nike with the wedge.

I think I like the Tour LC's better than the HT's.

 

Since April 16th, I have gamed more $$$'s than anyone else in my Saturday Golf Group of 50 golfers.

 

I can play one Tour LC for several rounds.
