They did this with their ball lab. It's not just the MaxFli and Foremost balls, it's a ton of other balls as well. Here's a link.

You're right. I guess I'd just have to research which balls are made by Foremost for my own comparison.

Was in Dick's this week and saw the 4 dozen box on sale for like $105... So tempted but I think the wife will be a little annoyed if I have 12 dozen or so balls in the basement. After the Ball Labs review I really want to try the 2022Tour X

They are always that price (or have been for over a year). You might even be able to get $20 off if you look around the store for a $20 off $100 signup text sign (they are usually on several clothing racks). Not 100% sure it works for these (it doesn't on line, but I have had that coupon rejected online but work in store for the same item), but you can give it a shot. The real deal is when MGS had a 40% off deal for them last Nov or so. Still kicking myself for not trying them then.

I know... that 40% was such a ridiculous deal. I think I am right in line behind you kicking myself.

I've bought in to the Maxfli Tour as my ball of choice.  I've played two rounds with them and feel very confident with my choice.  Good distance, control and workability, not to mention the price $60 for two dozen personalized balls.  Here's hoping they don't get discontinued, or get a big head and price themselves out of my range;)

I just got back from Dicks. Sadly, they know me all too well there and I’m guilty of using their fitting bay for practice. Noticed that they’re fitting people with the Maxfli Tour. Which I guess is smart if you want to sell more of your balls, but both balls in the bay were cracked. I mean they were seriously destroyed. I mentioned it to the Dicks crew and they said “ya, it’s horrible but Dicks won’t let us get new balls.” Seriously?! Not only would I be using fresh balls for fittings, I’d give a two-ball sampler sleeve of the Maxfli Tour and X to everyone who made a golf purchase. They’re missing a serious chance to market their product.

On a separate visit a few months ago, a customer asked the associate about the Maxfli balls and if they were any “good.” The associate shrugged and said “never heard of them.” Shut the front door. How do you work in the Dicks golf section and not know about your own golf balls. Dicks corporate needs to get their act together if they want Maxfli to sell better.

I went today and picked up a 4 dozen pack of the Tour X. I had signed up using my wife's phone number and the code didn't want to work in store. They were very nice and did the override so I still got the discount.

So I went to Golf Galaxy yesterday and got fit for some new Stealth irons. I brought my own Tour CG ball for the fitting and the guy commented that they are "hard" balls. I didn't agree with him but didn't feel like debating with him. Looking at the Ball lab, the X is definitely a harder ball than the regular tour. Maybe that's what he was referring to? There were a couple existing Tour CG balls in there that were beat to crap. Had actual cuts on them as well as just a ton of wear and tear. You would think they would try to keep a decent ball in there to try and sell people on them.

When I was checking out, I asked the cashier if I would get some free balls or something for spending a small fortune on my new irons and she told me they have a 2 ball sample pack she would give me. Then I forgot to take her up on that once I was actually done making my purchase. I would guess that they are giving away one each of the Tour and Tour X balls? Like you said, that would make for good business. Shame on me for forgetting to remind her that I wanted the balls.

I think this is a prime example of the difference between a big box all sports store vs a specialized golf store. If I was working in a golf shop that had access to the Maxfli balls at the price Dick's sells them at I would be pitching them left right and center.

I like the Maxfli golf ball, but not a fan of Dick's customer service. I think they just put whomever they can find in the golf dept.

Went and got fit for a new driver today at Golf Galaxy. Ended up getting the Stealth. Very excited about it. When I was checking out, I asked if they would throw in some free balls or something and they said they would. He handed me a 2 pack of Chrome Soft X balls. I was honestly shocked that they don't give away their own golf balls. Opportunity missed for them.

I assume the got the Chrome Soft X as part of a deal or promo to give away with sales of the Rouge ST line. Pretty standard when I worked at Dick's that companies would sometimes send that type of thing to give out as a promo for buying a certain brand.

I am not sure what they got them for but I bought the Taylormade Stealth. The cashier said that was all they had left. I don't know if they normally have a wider selection of promo balls or what?

As I remember, 9 or 10 years ago DSG used to have PGA card members working in the golf area and then they eliminated them as a cost saving measure. Since then they really haven't had decent folks in most cases in the golf dept. At least that's my recollection.

I played my first round with the Maxfli TourX this morning.  The ball is fantastic and very similar to the Snell.  They are on sale and with the $20 in store coupon I don't think you can beat 4 dozen balls for $90.

I've been using the Tour X for a while now and love it.  I think the latest version performs a bit better although it does seem like it scuffs a bit easier.  I was reluctant buying 4 dozen balls at once even < $100, but I'm sold.

I bought the Maxfli Tour cube. I have not hit them yet. I have been playing either Callaway Soft Chrome and Srixon Q Tour. Looking forward to see how these balls play.

Update: The Maxfli TourX is a very good ball. I have used for three months and I like them. Was using Srixon QStarTour and they are very comparable. Soft ball holds the greens yet can be driven far.
