Dicks was/is having a flash sale and Gamers are marked down 20% and BOGO = 7.50 a dozen. I bought 6 and a new driver grip (to put me over 50 for the free shipping). Haven't actually played with the Gamer at all but really like the D2 feel ball.

    You should like them

    I have some GS and wish I would have grabbed a doz of the reg gamers to try

    Really like the D2F and GS, I think the D2F is leading

    Do a personal review when you play them against the D2F

    SD brings up a great point. I love the feel and performance of the D2 Feel. Hoping the Gamer is comparable. I have been a 50elite player for years but for 7.50 a dozen, it’s too good to pass up. Sale is still on, I’m thinking about buying some more. They should be here tomorrow. If I like them I’m gonna splurge.

    Played the Gamer V2 many years ago, but not the current Gamer ball. Is it pretty much still the same ball?

    Some folks claim to notice some variation to the cover or feel, but I’ve played every version of Gamer and can’t really tell the difference. I’ve enjoyed the version/quality that has come out from DSG/GG the last few years.

    I tried them long ago and they just are missing something my ProV1 clone from Callaway is not.

    I was at a DSG in Wisconsin last weekend and they were marked BOGO @ $14.99, but I didn't buy them because I have 10 boxes image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    I retract my original post. I now have 12 dozen coming my way. Amazing deal.



    Gonna pepper these around with reckless abandon!

    I believe you can do both the DSG in my area have sh*t stock. There are 2 and 1 was hit by a tornado a week ago. If anyone comes across any white Gamer Soft, let me know and I will PayPal you money to purchase and ship to me

    Yes, many DSG have poor stock. I thought the white gamersofts could be had on line for this deal and they ship it to the store for free. But, they have not yet to be seen in store for a year now.

    the white Gamer Soft states not available for shipping. The blue is just a complete disappointment in color. It would be different if it were neon matte blue, but its fertilizer, blend in blue color just blows.

    +1 on the GS Blue - what were they thinking?
  • lil'mikelil'mike Members Posts: 1,264 ✭✭
    Instead of the blue, they should have made them in orange.
  • strug'-a-lingstrug'-a-ling Posts: 155 ✭✭
    I play Pro V1s not because my game warrants them, but because I get them for gifts.



    I should try those Top Flite Gamers for nostalgia sake.



    I loved Top Flites back when Spaldng made them--not the XLs but the originals.



    They were rock hard--100+ compression--but there's never been a more consistent ball for club selection.



    Modern irons might not have spun them, but the old Spalding Executive 8-PW spun them with no problem.

    @ $7.50 I jumped on a boat load. Unless the greens are super baked, crusted over tour caliber 13 on the stimp meter, they play perfectly fine.



    Had my 2 best rounds of 2018 with the Gamer..... I am hooked!

    I'm glad to hear that so many are fans of the Gamer. I did the 6 dozen with really having no experience with them at all. My love of the D2 Feel with hopes of a little "more" convinced me to buy the Gamers.



    and... I love hearing, "That ball up there (in front of other balls) isn't yours... it's a Top Flite." The country clubbers get a little " put off" by that.

    Top Flite is a ****'s house brand since they bought Top Flite some years back. I've been playing Gamers for quite a while. My big complaint is that lately they haven't had the Gamer in yellow in stock. I tried to ask their chat guy what was up with that but he didn't know anything. Fortunately I still have 5 dozen yellow Gamers but I don't know what I'll do when they are gone.

    Yeah I got 3 dozen at Black Friday but it appears the Gamer is either going away or having a new release.



    Either way I got plenty of white which I don’t mind, I prefer the yellow but for the value I am good for now.

    WOW... what a ball. These things are great. Straight off the tee and spin great around the greens. Definitely found my new ball. May be ordering more than the 6 I already did.

    $14.99 BOGO plus $10 off $50 today @ DSG web site, you can get 8 doz for $49.92 + tax, it also ships free!



    I already have 14 boxes though. If I get more I might be insane.
  • lil'mikelil'mike Members Posts: 1,264 ✭✭
    I wish I could have gotten the yellow ones but when I checked days ago they only had like one box available. I had a $10 reward thing to use up so I bought enough to get free shipping and the $10 off!



    Great just what I needed was more golf balls and white ones too! I hope I like them cause I got quite a few coming!!!

    I'm a sick, sick, bastage. 14 + 8 is 22 dozen. My God. How can I refuse for $0.50 a ball roughly though? I MUST stop now LOL

    Just checked your profile to see where you live... figured if DSG gets rid of them I could just “borrow” some from you in 20 years! Or you could just gift them along on OUR birthday

    Well one thing is for sure. I can spray them in the woods to my heart is content now without fear.



    That said, DSG must be killing the Gamer. I think that is the only explanation for such a fire sale. A lot of people will not want pay close to full retail for this series from here forward. Why would you? The deal is always coming back. Even if they are upgrading the Gamer who would pay close to retail?
