  1. I just realized I have an entire box of the maxfli tours in gloss yellow that ive never opened. Gonna have to give them a try when im fully recovered from being sick.
  2. Agreed. Love how the ball plays, but really dont like their color choice. That should use their soft feel yellow for all their models!
  3. Srixon Soft feel. the best yellow I've ever seen. wish they used that specific color with their Q-star Tour. Have to give a shoutout to the totally underrated Top Flite Hammer Control in yellow. Sleeper ball of 2020. All of my best rounds last year were with that ball. All of my sub 80 rounds this year are with that ball except for 2 rounds.
  4. I play a ton of golf (I get to the course 2-3 times a week and play 27-36 holes each time) so price is a huge deal for me. I mainly have 4 balls I will play: 2 surlyn covers and 2 urethane covers. For surlyn I'll play a topflite hammer control or a Srixon Soft Feel both in yellow. For urethane I'll play a Ksig 3pc or a Srixon Q-star tour(in yellow). For me it depends on how ive been hitting and whether I need more stopping power on the green. If I am hitting well I go to a higher compression ball and if the greens are firm I switch to the higher compression urethane ball. If I'm not playing as well or I'm just really in the mood to hit marshmallows all day I will play the lower compression ball. For some reason a lower compression ball makes me feel more comfortable when striking the ball.
  5. what are you guys doing that you are tearing up the cover of a Hammer Control? I played that ball all last year, with a few soft feels and qstar tour rounds, and I never had issues with the cover except when hitting out of bunkers sometimes.
  6. I'm already down a box of soft feels so I'm gonna be getting at least another 3 boxes before the sale is over.
  7. they usually do 3for2 in the spring every year and then a second sale for Fathers day which was BOGO last year.
  8. Just grabbed 3 boxes of Soft Feels in Tour Yellow(best yellow for a ball IMO) with a coupon from Dicks. Came out to $12/box because of thr coupon. Only $1 more per box than what i paid last year during the BOGO. Not bad.
  9. Yes absolutely. One is an overpriced 2-piece surlyn/ionomer cover ball and the other is a well priced 3-piece urethane cover ball. They are basically completely different balls only similar in name and I believe compression. If you want an ionomer cover there are better options than the qstar(IMO the soft feel is better and $5 cheaper per box). If you want a urethane ball that isnt high compression like a traditional tour ball then the q-star tour is a great choice.
  10. You can still find them at some stores which is why I asked. Someone else(not sure if here or on reddit) bought a bunch of boxes recently not realizing they were the first version.
  11. The divides feel heavy to me compared to the regular urethane QSTs. Anyone else feel like that with these?
  12. Did you get the version 1 or version 2 ball? I think you'll be happy either way!
  13. Soft Feel over supersoft for sure.
  14. I mainly only switch if the greens are being very unreceptive to approach shots. Then I'll switch to a Ksig or qstar tour. Otherwise I'm usually playing a TF Hammer Control, Srixon Soft Feel, or Callaway superhot matte. I like playing vanillla golf and aiming for the middle of the green and when they are super firm you cant do that with surlyn balls(or at least I can't) In really cold weather I will switch to a lower compression ball, but they are already in my regular lineup anyway.
  15. it's definitely a different ball. I can pick out which one is which just by having them in my hands and doing a finger nail test on the cover. the HC cover is slightly softer which might be why you are having a durability issue compared to the D2+F. Personally I prefer the HC over the D2+ Feel. I play the yellow version though. not sure if that makes a difference.
  16. Top Flite Hammer Control would be close IMO. it's a great ball and the cover feels great for a top flite. I'm really impressed with what they were able to do with their 2020 lineup. one of my other favorite ionomer balls is the Srixon Soft Feel, but it won't hit the price point you are looking for unless the BOGO sale comes back this year. then you'd be looking at about $11 a dozen.
  17. the worst balls I find on the course are Nitros.. no idea what model they are, but they are literally stones. the make the old Top Flites feel like balatas(new Top Flites are actually really decent).
  18. I really hope so. i'll be stocking up big time on qstar tours and soft feels this time if so!
  19. Are you using the new 2021 ball? Curious how those are. Looks like they might have finally made their matte pink actually pink and not magenta.
  20. Best I have done was 5 rounds with a matte red Callaway superhot. Those things don't die. I lose them before I see real damage. Other records for me: Rounds with the same tee - 6 Most holes in one day - 60 Most pitch and putt holes - 100 Fastest round riding - 1hr40min Fastest rd walking - 2hr5min Fastest pitch and putt round - 18:38
  21. I walk with a push cart. If I'm already putted out I will walk over to my push cart and wait there until everyone else putts out. That puts me closer to the next tee and I wont slow down the rest of the group who are riding. I personally couldnt care less if anyone stood around to watch my putt or not. Has no impact on my game.
