I picked up 1 dozen used, going to put them in play on Monday for a scramble on a course I just played with a ProV1X. Should be an interesting comparison as I hit a lot of driver to gauge distance and full shots with each 4 of my wedges into greens (45-50-54-60 degrees) to compare stopping power. I hope the MGS hype is real because these balls are real cheap for AAAA used and in great shape since they are a newer release.

Let us know how it works for you.  I don’t have any right now but plan to get more when current stash of balls gets low.  Used balls in Excellent condition is definitely something I’ll look into.

Further comparisons with the Tour Speed left me unimpressed.  I didn't see any performance benefit over the e12 Contact, which is my current gamer.  It's a good ball and I could certainly play it, but I found the e12 gave me more distance without giving up any performance when hitting into the green.  Putting was pretty neutral but I'm probably used to the e12 so it's hard to judge between the two.

during the 2021 ball test, didnt the Tour Speed fly the furthest on day 2? like 305 in the air? 

It was mentioned during NPG as a ball that was surprise, so I’m anxiously waiting to see where it ends up when they release the data.

Yes, I saw that too, but it really didn't surprise me.  Was it a good ball?  Absolutely, but I guess I was expecting something more.  I really thought I would see better performance hitting into the green, but my swing speed is probably not fast enough to see a difference.

I really had trouble with distance control on the green when putting.  The feel was just not there for me.  Personally, I think the Maxfli Tour (my previous gamer) was much easier to judge distance.  I did a little putting comparison with the Maxfli Tour and the e12 and I found them very, very close when it came to distance control.

I normally play the ProV1x but forget to bring extras on our vacation in Bar Harbor, Maine. Will try a sleeve tomorrow morning of the Tour Speed.

Will keep you posted.

Wanted to piggyback on this thread. I currently game the Snell MTB-X but also been considering the Tour Speed as well as the Maxfli Tour ball. Anyone here have some experience with either of these balls and the MTB-X?

I bought a dozen because they were out of 2019 ProV1x

I wanted to compare the TOUR SPEED to the TM Tour response and Srixon Q star tour.

I saw no major differences practicing with each pitching, chipping and putting. I don't like the double arrow on the side.

Played 27 holes with the TOUR SPEED and I would agree with most. It has good stopping power with scoring clubs, 7i - wedges. Maybe equal to ProV1 but for me the TOUR SPEED had a lower flight. The short game was very very good. Pitching/chipping, I drop 6 - 8 within a foot. Putts very true, similar to me like a ProV1 or x. I cannot really commend on distance, I just reshafted my irons so I am still dialing them in. I played in windy conditions too, I am not sure the TOUR SPEED is as good thru the wind. I haven't lost any yet.

The price is okay but not low like the TM Tour response and Srixon Q star tour.

This is the main marketing issue I think Titleist is facing. They want this ball to compete against other Tour-level balls like Z-Star and not against lower-tier competitor urethanes (Q-Star Tour). But as a consumer, I'm absolutely doing what you're describing where I look at a competitor brand and then find their non-Tour urethane option. And in that comparison, no way I'm spending $40/dz unless I just *have* to play Titleist specifically.

I found quite the opposite on the stopping power.  And I certainly don’t have a high swing speed.  Maybe 73 mph on a 7 iron.  But I do hit a high ball.   Almost all of my irons it stopped within 3-5 feet of the ball mark.  
 

And I absolutely loved the soft/quiet feel off the putter. Even more so than my ProVX

Agreed. There are a number of urethane options out there at a lower price point that perform very well. Tough to justify $40, especially for someone like me, when I can pick up something else right next to it on the shelf for $10, or order online for literally half the price.

Sites like “Lost Golf Balls” have excellent prices and and options.

I received a sleeve of the Tour Speed from Titleist to try and review. Overall it a good ball and at a good "bang for your buck". I'm not extremely brand loyal when it comes to balls. I found the Tour Speed ball to perform well. It appeared to be as long as the balls I currently play and spun well inside of 100yds and around the green. I found feel to be too soft for my liking. I didn't care for the feel when putting. The cover seemed to rough up a little more as well. Overall though, at $35/dz it was a good ball. I still prefer the Snell MTB and MTB X at the same price point.
