***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

Top-Flite Gamer

    If that ball can spin as much as the TF Exception Spin ball did, I'll bag it in a second. I LOVE beating people with a chitty ball.<br />

    Don't tell anyone but my PB 75 was shot with a Laddie Xtreme that I found on the course the round before <img src='http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' /> As if I need a ProV1 to shoot low - I can't even beat my PB with them.

    A three piece ball that can spin from Top Flite?<br />
    <br />
    Looks like a solid competitor for the NXT Tour model in terms of price. If it's long and spins a lot, it could give the Pro V1 a run for its money at half the price.

    Laddie Extreme is a great ball! And you can't beat $10/doz.

    very interested in trying these. . .I've been switching between pinnacle exceptions and srixon AD333's (can't get srixons anywhere here for some reason, but I LOVE the exception, softer and spinnier than new NXT for me), and this one looks right up that alley.

    I'm not paying 25 bucks for top flights,..........can't do it. I'll spend 5 more for b330's/TM Reds.........to many balls in the 25-30 range......and yes I do like the D2's but for 15 for 15, not 25 for 12 for top flights. If they would just keep it below the 20 dollar break point I would go for them.

    I agree with you, and I think that the market will too. The D2 is a good ball for sure, and this new one probably will be too. I just don't see that many people spending that much for a Top-Flite. No matter how good it may be.

    **** you guys ruined my top flite gamer obsession of the past couple weeks. But your right about the price.<br />

    Yep, a Top-Flite ball with a street price of more than $20/box will be a tough sell!

    I don't really care what the brand name on the ball is--if they perform like or better than balls in the price category, I'll at least try them. I think the TF brand has lost much of it's stigma because of the Callaway ownership and Callaway has engineered and manufactured some great balls--as well as the success of TF's D2 line, which is a very good 2 piece ball, at a great price. This isn't your father's TF, and if the Gamer performs well for it's price, I don't care what brand it is. Like the Callaway brand and it's products or not, Callaway is masterful at marketing, and if the balls are good, I'll bet they sell well, and will be talked up on this site. From what I've read, the ball will sell well below the MSRP of $24.99, likely at $19.99. Even if the price is $24.99, if you like the ball better than a Bridgestone E5 or E6(also $24.99), would you buy the Bridgestone's merely because of it's name, and because it isn't a TF? I'll buy the TF!!

    I'll ask the same question someone had earlier. When are these supposed to hit market? I have not been able to get any info on these anywhere else.<br />
    <br />
    The D2 are getting some great reviews by independent testers like Advanced Golf Solutions and Calgolftech.com. I guess the secret is in their ability to have a good/shallower angle of descent compared to most other balls. This gives them quite a bit of extra distance compared to other balls that tend to drop out of the sky once their spin rate starts to degrade.<br />
    <br />
    thanks

    I'm with you! The beauty of t he D2s is the incredible price/performance ratio. Yes, the D2 Feel could use a little more spin but if the Gamer sells at retail then that is basically double the price!Too many other balls to choose from that perform at that price point.

    Finally broke down and purchased a box of the D2 Feel balls at Sports Authority here in Chicago on Saturday. They had them on sale for 11.97 for a pack of 15 and I couldn't pass that up as an opportunity to experiment with a new ball on the cheap. I took them out to the course Sunday (temperature was a high of 55 degrees with light to moderate wind). <br />
    <br />
    Wow - I was skeptical at first, but these balls won me over big time... <br />
    <br />
    Driver Performance - Above average distance off the driver. As long as the Bridgestone E6 I normally play and just as straight. I could definitely hear and feel the ball come off the club face. It felt much firmer than the soft cover/low compression balls I normally play, but not so much that I would avoid it in the future.<br />
    <br />
    Iron Performance - This is where the ball really shined for me. At least a 5-10 yards longer and the ball really held it's flight in the wind. I was really watching closely how it held the greens and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. It didn't spin like a premium ball, but it took one hop and stopped most of the time.<br />
    <br />
    Short Game - I really struggled with this aspect of the product. This is definitely the softest ball Top Flight has ever made, but it is still firmer than I would like off the putter. I rolled quite a few putts past the hole until I got used to the ball and still struggled with my feel quite a bit.<br />
    <br />
    Durability - I didn't cut or scuff a single ball in play. They are insanely durable.<br />
    <br />
    Overall, I liked the ball enough to keep buying them. Even at full retail, this ball has a ridiculous cost to value ratio. I would imagine the ball would perform even better in warmer weather. And if the gamer is softer with a higher spin rate, then saddle up boys and girls because it will be hard to beat it even at the higher price point.

    Sweet, Top Flite is finally re-introducing the Strata line under the TF name! I loved TF Stratas and was disappointed when Callaway shut down the line limiting TF to 2 piece balls. The D2 Feels are the real deal for a 2 piece, but it is nice to see the company that started the multipiece ball craze in the mid 1990's re-introduce a muliti layer ball again.<br />
    <br />
    It will be interesting to see if the dimple in dimple technology works as well in the 3 piece ball as it does in the D2 line of balls. I can not wait to try one out when they are released.

    I've had a chance to play both the TF 'Gamer' and 'Freak'. Believe it or not, both a are decent ball for the price. For those who were a fan of the D2's, be sure to check these out.

    Can you be more specific about the performance, and what you liked, about each of the new TF balls? I've played both the Feel and Distance balls. Though I like both I now play the Maxfli Tour Fire. Hopefully the weather here in NJ holds out long enough for me to try TF's new offerings.
