2022 OnCore Elixr

Hey guys, so I got the email today that the new version of the Elixr has dropped and is available for order. Most interestingly I think this ball isn't coming from that Foremost plant where the original came from because the cover is 350 dimples, not the traditional 318 you come to expect for balls from that plant. Looking at the USGA Ball List, looks like they might be sourcing from Japan since that's where the majority of the 350 dimple pattern balls are coming from, except ironically the Velocity from Titleist.

Could this be the first known squeeze we see from Taylormade ramping up production at Foremost and Nassau? Hard to say but worth watching

I wouldn't be surprised if that had something to do with it, or they were trying to save on production costs to remain price competitive. I believe OnCore's first balls were produced in a plant in China, and I wouldn't be surprised if they went back to their original manufacturer.

The first generation Elixr was a GREAT golf ball.  I cannot comment on the new ball / mfg but I would hope that they’re similar.  

Funny enough, I found a dozen in my closet that I somehow misplaced.  They’re 2 seasons old so I am not sure how they’ll perform.

Played the Elixr for the last few years and really like it.  Been trying the Vero this season.  I saw there was a new version of the Elixr and was going to give it a try with their B2G1 special, but (right now anyway) they only have them in white.  No yellow.  So more Veros are in the mail.  Older eyes do better searching for the yellow...

The 350 dimple pattern is from Launch Technologies in Taiwan (factory that produces most of Callaway’s ionomer balls I believe). The shift from Foremost is likely due to capacity and material shortages (DSG, Wilson, Vice, and TM are likely at the head of the line at Foremost although it will be interesting to see if TM continues following the Nassau acquisition).

During OnCore's buy two dozen get one free promotion I wanted to purchase some Elixr golf balls based on  MySpyGolf reviews and the OnCore ball fitting assessment.  I also exchanged a few emails back and forth with the company asking which of their balls and versions they would recommend.  I ultimately decided to go with the 2022 Elixr. 

 As soon as they arrived, I put them into play.  With my relatively slow swing speed (typically in the mid to high 70's) I found a loss of distance when compared with my typical Srixon QStar Tour.   My playing partners even commented on it without being prompted.  Later that week I received an OnCore request for feedback on the ball's performance and decided to share my experience expecting that it go into a "feedback black hole" and I'd work my way through the remaining balls over time.  

Within hours I got an email response saying they were sorry for my experience and wanting to know a bit more detail about my game.  After I responded, within an hour I got a shipping notice that samples of Elixr 2020, Vero X1 and Avanti 55 balls were heading my way to try.  Their customer service representative explained they wanted me to live test which ball was better for my game.  When I wrote my review, I realistically expected nothing in return.  However, I was pleasantly surprised at the excellent customer service that OnCore provided.

After receiving the Elixr 2020 I immediately put it into play.  The Elixr 2020 has an overall lower compression (80 versus a stated mid-80's for the 2022 version).  With a sample size of one round, I found the Elixr 2020 performance to be overall better.  I regained the lost yardage and it was very solid around the greens (chipped in once and almost a second time).  I think the Elixr 2020 could be a contender to knock off the QStar Tour.  

Overall, I was impressed with the 2020 Elixr ball.  But I was ultimately more impressed with the OnCore's commitment to customer service.
