No.  I wonder if it might be related to differences in herbicides, insecticides, etc.?

Now I am questioning my past decisions to play barefoot...

I picked my ball up on the first green last week and it had the blue dew on it. I wiped it on my towel and probably 4 holes later wiped some sweat off of my forehead. This meme is pretty much the reaction I had. 😂

This season I have played the Snell MTB-X, pro v1 and Maxfli Tour yellow and Tour X in white.  
 

these are my 3 (really 4 I guess) balls.  I have to say the Maxfli is the only ball I feel like I’m not giving up something somewhere.  The MTB-X for  some reason was long off the tee for me but thought it was shorter with irons than normal.  
 

anyway, the Maxfli blows me away with how good it is.  The deals are just icing.    This ball is long, spins and feels good.  It has to be a placebo as I don’t believe in it, (I don’t think) but I feel like when I line the CG line off the tee down the line I hit some of my best drives.  


I do agree the yellow paint can scuff easier than others.  That’s the only knock I can think of.

I used to take my shoes off when caddying if I was developing blisters, and it explains a great deal.

I get a lot of grief from my wife about my golf towel because I only "use" one side of it. The truth of the matter is that it's one of those giant caddie towels and one side is for cleaning my clubs and ball and the other side is for my hands and face 😏

I think I have like 3 boxes as well! I speculated that they would be updating the model when the 2019s were 2 for $55!

I figured they would increase it but they still have that 2 for $60. For $30 a dozen I’ll for sure try them out!

As far as I can tell there is no matte option either. Maybe they add color options and finish options once they have a full release. At least I hope that is what happens.

I played the 2019 version of the Tour all of 2020 and really thought the ball played really well in all parts of the game. A poor persons Pro V.

I have picked up a box of the new 2021 Tour and have played them for about a month and a half. I think the new ball is 5-10 yards shorter off the tee and spins more off the mid irons which tends to have it drop out of the air a bit quicker.

my driver swing speed is 87-91 usually about 228-235 off the tee and I Carry  my 7I about 144 on avg.

I like the older version better!!
