Perfect. That was my assumption.  Any issue with greenside spin?  I didn't realize how much of a difference that made when moving from "found/cheap" balls to "good" balls, and I'd hate to go backwards (pun intended).  🙂

 

... Nice! 😉  Quite a few have mentioned the Maxfli Tour balls are so similar to the ProV1/Z Star/TP5 that most can't tell any difference and that would include green side performance.

MaxfliX has to be the best ball for the money. I have played it about half of my rounds the past two years.

... I am a little slower than you at around 95-98 but having played the MTB Black I found the Maxfli Tour to be a very similar ball in all aspects. 

Hmmm. So you don't find it any longer than the Snell MTB Black? I was hoping it was longer, as I have found the Snell to be somewhat shorter than other balls I tend to play, such as Vice Pro Plus and Callaway ERC Soft (I know, two totally different balls, but they work for me).

... To be fair I did not play them side by side and the Maxfli certainly may be a hair longer but not an obvious difference for me.

I'm still torn as to which model to go with. I've probably looked at every review, written and video I can find, and many say the "Tour X" is the longer of the two. However, if I look at the MGS data from the ball test, the "Tour", non-X, is the clear winner at the mid swing speed and the "X" is only very slightly longer as the slow swing speed. I have no idea what my swing speed is, but it definitely is faster than 85 but slower than 100.

For what it is worth, I've been playing a mix of Snell MTB Black and Vice Pro Plus, the Vice being the longer of the two. I use Shot Scope for data tracking and for the year the data shows my total distance on well struck drivers is 230 yards (their "P-AVG" which supposedly eliminates outliers good and bad), with about 210 yards being my average of all drives, good, bad and indifferent.

I wish Dick's sold sleeves of balls, as I'm hesitant to buy a dozen of each at this point. So, I'd be curious what others think the better choice for me might be. I'm turning 75 soon if that might factor into it. 🙂

Thanks!

In my testing, the Tour was indistinguishable from the standard ProV1 and the Tour X was similar (though not quite as similar) to the ProV1x. Titleist says they fit a LARGE number of amateurs into their X ball because am's need the launch and spin, which would align with so many Spies saying they're getting more out of the X.

For my game, more spin is bad. I have plenty. I tried the X and it was definitely shorter through the bag. Noticeably higher flight though, but just in the same way that the ProV1x and I aren't really friends, the Maxfli Tour handily defeated the X.

FWIW, Dick's will let you do the 'two dozen for $60' deal with a dozen of each and then whichever doesn't suit you, at least you have some really nice (and relatively cheap!) range balls 😄

The Maxfli is longer off the tee for me.  The highest compliment you can give this ball is the only ball that rivals the Maxfli Tour is the Pro V/X.  Hands down the best ball out there and the price makes it a no brainer.  The only thing, and this is such a minor thing, is I do enjoy the off white color of a Pro-V.  Been playing the Maxfli Tour X for almost three seasons now, I am a devotee.  If you can justify spending an additional $23 per box for that off white cover of the Pro V then you are a madman. 

Plus, nobody at my course plays Maxfli and it is hella funny when a playing partner is helping to find/identify a ball and they say, 'Maxfli' and you get that surge of pride in hitting a ball way down the fairway and that spins on the greens knowing those golf snobs playing TP5, Callaway, Pro V are quietly thinking, 'Wow, that ball performs'.

Matte finish may not be your jam but the matte vs gloss appears to not be so bright and even a slight shade of off white if you squint your eyes just right😜. not really. There is definitely a notable difference between gloss and matte. I enjoy using both and due to my lower spin drive, this ball just flies! 

I reviewed the matte tour a while back and it's surprisingly easy to keep clean, as durable as anything, and performs just like the gloss.

... I played with a couple last winter with Packers golf bags and each had a yellow and a green ball. I told them they were illegal balls when in a 1 foot proximity to each other and the Lady smiled and said she could switch to her white golf balls and pulled one out of her bag ... that had a huge Packers logo on it.  Hoisted with my own petard! 🤣

Packer fans are everywhere.  And we come prepared for any emergency...including on the golf course.  While you Bears fans are sleeping we're awake...and studying...and preparing.

Let me start off by saying I play to a 3.1 hdcp.  After seeing the Maxfli review, I purchased 2 dozen of the Maxfli Tour X.  After playing it, as well as the ProV1 and Z-Star, the only difference I could determine, for me, is that the PV1 feels a tiny bit softer and the Z-Star a bit firmer. 

The Tour X spin into and around the green is far better than the Z-Star and is very close to the PV1. I also find the Tour X as durable as the PV1, but not as strong as the Z-Star.

I am very surprised with the solid performance of the Tour X.  For the foreseeable future it is my new ball.

When I first started playing, around age 50, I thought the Maxfli MD 100 was the best ball made.  I'm now 74 and a 14 handicap player, and wonder if the brand of the ball makes any difference as long as it's a quality ball.

I play ProV1X and with Maxfli results like these I will pick up a dozen and give them a go!  Awesome!

For me I already have a high launch and trajectory with my swing. So the Tour X was around 8-10 Yds shorter off the driver compared to ChromeSoft X and XLS for me. The Tour X played almost exactly the same as Snell MTB X (which is also shorter for me vs CA X/LS off the tee). But I loved the feel of the Tour X off the irons better than any ball so far. So I just went and picked up 2 doz of the regular Tours to put in play this weekend and see if and really hope that the launch and spin is a better fit. According to the MGS ball test the regular Tours should perform very similar to the CS XLS.

As a long time PGA Member who was a staff member and certified fitter and designer to many of the major manufacturers I can enthusiastically endorse the Maxfli golf ball as the performing ball at the best price on the market. Additionally Dick’s occasionally will run promotions for even greater savings.  Give it a try I know you won’t be disappointed

I'm just hoping Dick's doesn't realize what a good ball they have in their inventory and raise the prices!!!!

I got to say your right in every way! love the feel, just less durable and I would say it spins less than a prov1. I use to be a snob for golf balls but in humbling myself and just getting the maxifli for now

Found one in the woods today going to put in play tomorrow and we'll see how it does. Our greens hard hard and fast so a spin ball is a must, we'll see how it handles the Towhee Club greens

How does the Tour X compare to PV1X/MTBX/TP5/CSX etc, ie the higher spinning balls in wind and driver distance/green side spin?  Seeing a lot of comparisons to the Tour X vs regular ProV1
