Quick Review: Top Flite Gamer

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has had a chance to test out the V2 of the Gamer yet. Our golf season has started here in Chicago and as soon as my foot has healed I plan on getting on the course! And while I 3 dozen B330RX sitting on my shelf I don't want to crack them out until my swing sets back in.

 

We had golf season in Chicago for about 3 days, now it's mud season. Blech.

The TopFlite Gamer is the best 'bang for the buck' golf ball out there. Hands down. Or, thumbs up...

It's now Wabbit season in the suburbs! Get out the rain gear my friend.

 

DId you ever stop by GG and get a shot at the Mizuno shaft optimizer?

 

If not, u should stop by.

After all the threats of rain, I'm looking at blue skies right now. I'll probably try to get out and do something today.

 

I did stop by for the shaft optimizer and it was pretty cool. They recommended the Dynalite Gold XP300, Nippon 900, and KBS Tours, in that order. I've been playing the KBS for over a year now and I'm happy with them, so I think I'll stand pat for a while.

Glad you got to give it a go! Of those three, the KBS would be my top. Dynalite Gold XP is a Mizuno exclusive that I'm not too crazy about. Glad to see that it put you into something you're already playing. Some of the looks on these guys faces when I tell them what they SHOULD be playing is priceless. "Um..... Uh..... I have been playing Dynamic Gold X100 for years... What do you mean that shaft isn't right for me?!?" :lol:

I can imagine its pretty humbling for some people. On average, how many people ignore the optimizer and tell you they still need something in XXX stiff and the machine doesn't know crap?

Most will believe the optimizer because they believe what a "computer" will tell them...... this is because i am able to print them what they need.... so naturally, they get a piece of paper to take home with them, therefore they get excited.

Hello all, first post here.

 

Last week I found a Gamer on the 17th hole, so I decided to put it in play on 18. I bombed a drive down the center of the fairway, then hit a full SW from 110 out; the ball landed 10' behind the pin, then spun back into the hole for and EAGLE. I stuck around and hit a few chips and putts with the ball and I was thoroughly impressed with it's feel and spin. I love my Callaway Tour ix balls, but I bought a sleeve of Gamer V2, so I can compare them next time out.

I bought a sleeve of the V2's at Walmart last week, and loved them... Went out and bought another dozen. I'm skipping work tomorrow and playing a quick 9 in between dropping off and picking up my son from pre-k, so I'll see how they feel for a full 9. So far I like what I've seen...

I can report that Matt is a witch with the wedges around the green. The cheap ball he was playing didn't seem to hurt that phase of his game at all.

 

Putting... well... we won't talk about that. Lets just say that neither one of us we're doing proud by our Byrons. :D

Took him by 3 strokes although I'll give him style points for rolling out the ever reliable and almost always effective "you're older than I thought you were" smack....
