What we say...
The Maxfli Tour X golf balls provide low spin off the tee and high spin on approach shots.
Maxfli have three balls in their premium range of golf balls, the Tour X, Tour and Tour S. While Maxfli previously have not been a name associated with the best golf balls, their Tour X is definitely a challenger to the Titleist Pro V1x and TaylorMade TP5x.
There is more competition than ever when it comes to the best premium golf balls, with more brands challenging the big guns and producing golf balls which perform well but do not come at as much of a cost.
In order to compete with the best premium golf balls, Maxfli have packed the Tour X with impressive technology; producing a rival to Titleist and TaylorMade. What technology in the Maxfli Tour X makes their balls a competitor to the best golf balls?
Center of Gravity Balanced
This is Maxfli’s patented balancing process, when combined with the new alignment aid improves consistency and accuracy.
Soft Cast Urethane
The soft cast urethane cover is what gives the Maxfli Tour its soft feel and additional greenside spin.
Tetrahedron Dimple Pattern
In order to optimize aerodynamics, the Tour golf balls sport a tetrahedron dimple pattern which improves ball flight by reducing drag allowing the ball to travel further.
This is Maxfli’s new core which has been designed to increase ball speeds giving explosive distance off the tee.
Dual Ionomer Mantles
The dual ionomer mantles are the two outer mantles which deliver low driver spin and high iron spin.
Which Maxfli Tour golf ball should I play?
Maxfli offers three different balls in their Tour range, the Tour S, Tour and Tour X. All Tour range golf balls by Maxfli are excellent premium options depending on what you want from your ball, where you play, and your desired flight.
The Tour X is the only 4-piece urethane cover construction golf ball in Maxfli’s tour range. It is the hardest of the three but still a soft feeling golf ball. The Tour X has been designed to produce the most spin on approach shots by delivering a higher ball flight than the Tour S and Tour ball.
The Maxfli Tour golf ball sports a 3-piece urethane cover construction which still delivers low spin off the tee and high spin around the greens. The Tour ball is softer than the Tour X and flies slightly lower and produces less spin with the irons.
Last of Maxfli’s three Tour options is the Tour S which is also a 3-piece urethane cover construction golf ball which provides the softest feel of all the Maxfli Tour range golf balls. The Tour has a lower ball flight and spin on approach shots is slightly lower – better for links golf and windy conditions.
Maxfli Tour X availability
The Tour golf balls are available in white and yellow. The balls are traditionally numbered from 1 to 4.
The balls are available to purchase from numerous retailers in the US at an RRP of $39.99; a strong competitor to the best premium golf balls you will not regret trying. The Maxfli Tour X golf balls aren’t as readily available in the UK but they can be purchased.
