Maxfli Tour Golf Ball Review

Maxfli Tour Golf Ball Review

Having previously tested the Maxfli Tour X golf ball While also briefly exploring Maxfli’s history as a golf ball brand, it’s now time to turn our attention to Maxfli’s other premium golf ball, the Maxfli Tour. Without getting into a deep discussion about golf ball nomenclature, it’s pretty much universal these days for manufacturers to have two premium golf ballswith one being a standard model and the other, for lack of a better description, an “X” model.

Oftentimes, the difference in performance between the models doesn’t end up being that significant. That is not the case, however, with the two Maxfli premium golf balls, as the Tour and Tour X proved to be very different animals in my testing. While the Tour X was impressively powerful in the long game and slightly lacking in terms of greenside control, the Tour model was almost a polar opposite. That said, both would rank among the best Maxfli golf balls.

I’ll start with the construction of the Maxfli Tour, which is a three-piece golf ball as compared to the four-piece Tour X. The Tour also has a slightly larger core to help promote improved energy transfer and more speed on full shots , and its cast urethane cover was utilized to promote soft feel and maximum greenside spin. And it was on and around the greens where the Maxfli Tour was at its best.

When compared to the Tour X, as well as a few other premium balls (ProV1, Pro V1xand TP5x) that I tested it against, nothing created more spin or provided a softer feel than the Maxfli Tour. It was simply exceptional in that regard, and I felt as though in any conditions and from any type of lie that I could control the golf ball when playing chip shots, pitch shots, and full or partial wedge shots. It also felt superb off the putter and I was a big fan of the alignment aid positioned on the side of the ball.

On the flip side, when compared to the balls I tested it against, the Maxfli Tour was consistently about 8-10 yards shorter off the tee and a half club shorter on full iron shots. While I didn’t have a launch monitor at my disposal during testing, I feel comfortable as an experienced player in chalking up those disparities to higher spin rates for me across the board on full shots.
