I played the Snell MTB-X this weekend, and it was a little wet but the carry off the tee seemed as good as my Bridgestone B XS. The spin on the greens were as good as well, I actually got a couple to spin back on some 40-60 yard pitch shots. I was very impressed.

It's my Go-To ball of choice.

I can see why, for the price and performance I may continue to play it.

The price interested me, but the performance is what kept me.  Had it not performed up to my expectations, I would have gone back to the Taylor Made TP5 I played before.

What does everyone think of Tony saying not to play matte golf balls in the most recent podcast?  The Maxfli golf balls would fall in that category and now I am questioning my choice.  MTB-X might become my ball until MGS finds something wrong with it.  I am not going to buy in bulk until this year's golf ball test is released.

Maxfli isn't exclusively matte, they make traditional finish balls as well.

Matte finish never appealed to me anyway. Knowing they don't perform as well when wet it just another reason to avoid them IMHO.

I'm about due to buy another 4-5 dozen Snells - but like you I'm also waiting for the MGS study to come out. I'm hoping/expecting them to say MTB's are comparable to Pro V1's - but Pro V1 has the edge in consistency. I've seen earlier studies from other sources that suggested no one has better consistency than Titleist tour level balls (others may be equal, but not better). We'll see...

I’ve been playing Snell MTB Blacks as long as they’ve been sold. I never tried the MTB-X because I did try and didn’t like the MTB Red, a little too much spin. But I just ordered a dozen MTB-X to try, shouldn’t skip them because of MTB Red.

I play Snell MTB-X and its my current number one. However, I did buy a dozen of the Maxfli's several months ago and tested. Good ball, but for some reason I did not putt as well with it and the feel was a little less to my likening compared to the Snell MTB-X.

I'd go with Snell based solely on reputation, results, and motivation. Maxfli is a budget brand that may perform well but I wouldn't trust them to be as consistent without a track record.

I was among the testers last year for the MaxFli Tour and Tour X balls. Here is the link to mine and the other testers reviews. 

At last years PNW Golf Spy Meet-up, @Thin2wingave me a sleeve of MTX-Black to try (he was among the Snell testers).  For me, it was a complete toss-up between the two and both fit my game as well as ProV1's.  I find the ProV1 (ProV1x), like Bridgestone tour balls, to be a bit more durable.  That seems a trivial difference except that I'll bet more golfers swap balls due to marring than anything else. To be fair, I have limited play with the Snell and would love to hear from those who play them how they compare in the durability department.

So in answer to your question, from a tried and true "best bang for the buck consumer" like myself, it is really hard to beat the $19.99/dozen sale price DSG offers on the MaxFli Tour and Tour X.  If not on sale, I'd probably give the nod to Snell simply based on its pedigree.
