2019 Maxfli Tour and Tour X Golf Balls

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I recently purchased a dozen each of the Tour and Tour-X. I started at the top of this subject and started reading about the balls. To save time I honed in on Rev's comments as we're similar age and playing ability. After getting through about 6 pages where I read Rev's comments I skipped the rest as I am probably already convinced that the Tour will be a better choice for me also. This weekend I'll be playing at least 2 rounds so I may play the Tour one round and the X another and just see. Anyway... they sound like good balls.

+1 ... I did the exact same... but didn't buy the X.  Beyond Rev there were also a number of other guys that preferred the Tour vs the X.  Seemed to be the most popular anyway.  Even though it's supposed to be mid to low 40's I'm hoping to be able to get out on Monday and give them a try.

With the Matte Green on for 17.98 yesterday I thought about giving 3 dozen a try... But with just buying a bunch of last year's Bridgestone Tour BX I couldn't justify it

The tour is a good ball -from what I saw the x only performs for guys with very high SS. The tour is a great value IMO

I've been playing the Maxfli Tour ball for awhile now...well, since last year's MSG Ball Testing.  I have a bit of nostalgia for the brand since I played the Maxfli Blue Max back when I started playing golf.  Tells you about how old I am (76) haha.  I have to say this is one of the most underrated balls on the market, especially when you consider you can pick them up for as low as $17.50/doz. if you're patient and wait for Dick's BOGO sales.  I mean where can you find a urethane golf ball for that price, and the ball's performance is as good as any I've played

Interesting video from the guys at TXG dropped today. Numbers look great with the Maxfli, I was just not a fan of the overall feel during our ball test. Solid ball though!

I saw that as well. I am still playing this ball since the testing and am playing some of my best golf ever. I'm hoping this video doesn't drive up demand since they are so easy to get on the cheap!

That was my concern!! They perform very very well given the price!!

I agree that the Tour is a great ball at a tremendous price point.

My swing prefers the Pro VIx though and I was significantly longer with that ball than the Tour.

The Maxfli Tour x only seemed to work for our fastest swingers.

Dicks had some even better sale prices on the Maxfli Tour & Tour X but haven't seen those offered recently ... maybe the word is getting out and moving price up?
