Testers Wanted – Maxfli Tour/Tour X Golf Balls

TESTERS WANTED

Plenty of golfers aren’t looking to spend $50 on a dozen golf balls. And in a perfect world, they’d pay less and retain all the performance of the higher-priced options.

Maxfli isn’t trying to win any market share battles with the industry leaders. But, what it can offer golfers for around $35/dozen (currently two for $60) is a lot of value for a ball that consistently bests more expensive models in performance and manufacturing consistency tests.

And unlike many balls made overseas by reputable third-party manufactures (Foremost, Nassau), a good bit of technology contained within the new balls is unique to Maxfli. The core formulation is exclusive to Maxfli as is the new high flexural modulus mantle. The cast urethane cover is softer than last time around too but, otherwise, it’s the same 318 dimple pattern as last time around.

All that said, we’d like to get feedback from MyGolfSpy readers.
