Been 3 weeks since I bought my last 2 boxes and I already need to go back for some more.. is it because I keep losing them?.. nope.. is it because they don't last?.. nope.. is it because I keep giving sleeves away to buddies and playing partners so they can try them.. yep 😬

 

 

You need to be on the payroll at Dicks.

I joined Club OnCore, and one of the perks was two dozen “free gift” Vero X1 balls from them.  I was running low on OnCore balls, and played two rounds with the Maxfli Tour X balls, which performed very well, but I still slightly favor the OnCore Vero X1 balls.

One of the major reasons that I ponied up the $100 to join Club OnCore, besides getting the two dozen balls, a new microfiber towel and a Yeti-clone hot/cold tumbler, was that I will get advance access to their new Vero X2 balls, which are scheduled to be available within the next month (and at a discounted price point). Initial reviews from the handful of OnCore staff players and employees who have hit the Vero X2 are very encouraging, and since they have a 95 compression, I am pretty sure that I will like them even better than I like the Vero X1.

Having been a tester for the Tour and Tour X, I've come to like these balls more and more as I keep putting them into play.  As many know, I've really struggled finding those few ball that are "best for my game".  This task seems easy for many of the forum members... me, not so much. I play lots of H2H (2 ball) competitions while playing rounds (often documented in the "How did you play" thread) and when course play permits, and have pitted a healthy dozen tour and mid tier balls against one another... and still have a hung jury 🤪

But, when I consider how these performed in the MGS Lab tests and that, when on sale (like the recent MGS 40% off special), they are arguably the best value out there. They and the Snell MTB are, IMO/E, every bit the equal of the Pro V's.  The only slight edge I would give the Pro V's is durability. 

Is this MGS 40% off special a yearly occurrence? If so, when does it happen? I've been looking at picking up some of the Tours. Currently playing the Kirkland 2.0 and feel like I'm not getting the distance I should be on well struck shots.

Bought a box based on MGS review.  Did not care for these.  Lost distance on every club.  I did putt well with these balls.  They are durable, as I have been using a couple for practice balls.  Couple hundred hits on two balls with a 56 wedge in my back yard.  Some cosmetic scuffs.  Will be staying with my current ball.

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

Have to give DSG credit - they have several products (Tommy Armour clubs, Maxfli balls & bags) that are very highly rated by MGS at great prices. I'd argue overall better bang for your buck over what Costco is selling.

Not a big brand snob but have to admit the Maxfli Tour especially for the price, has been a decent ball performance wise. I hit it as far as CS and V1 and around the greens it bites as needed despite the operator's headspace and timing issues.  It is worth the try and see.

Thanks for clarifying, I was just trying to make the point that the Maxfli golf balls could be purchased at any one of the three.

Yeah I was pretty surprised too. I ran through a lot of the MGS ball data trying to get to a short list of balls to test and the Maxfli stayed in the top 5 in all this. For the performance and price per ball is phenomenal!

I'm interested what your  current ball is and swing speed?

At the moment I think it is the best ball deal going. 

I think you are probably correct. 

I got a bag full of Cobras.... Well, not the putter... yet.

I think it might be the tops in price per performance. ... At least right up there.

I've enjoyed these balls however the yellow covers are not as durable as other balls.  Maybe they can toughen them up for the next version coming out.  This one hit a cart path and results were not pretty.

I noticed the yellow chipping on some Taylormade Tour Response balls I was testing.  Maybe the paint is just not what it used to be.

To be fair, after a ball hits the cart path (any ball) it's probably time to retire it 😄
