Would have been early 2000’s.  I played the revolution some in high school but I’m pretty sure it was a solid core.

Maxfli Revolution Solid

Maxfli-Revolution-Solid-Ball-300x204.png

Introduced in the early 2000s to compete with the Pro V1, the Maxfli Revolution Solid was engineered to provide improved distance without sacrificing approach or around-the-green spin. It was a three-piece ball that featured an oversized core and urethane cover. What also made the Maxfli Revolution interesting is that its main endorser was none other than Jack Nicklaus.

The Maxfli Rev Solid were junk.

  • 3 weeks later...

Went and picked up 2 dozen Maxfli tour for $60 at Dicks 

Matte white

They had yellow, which I normally play but I liked the look of the Matte White

Only played a few holes so far, but they do stop as well as the Z-Star on the greens

I have some Z-Stars left over from the Father's Day deal so they will be going head to head with them

I normally play the Snell Black or the Z-Stars when they have a deal.

 

As far a durability, I nailed a tree on the 1st hole with the 1st tee shot and the ball did not have a mark on it.

So far so good.  Maybe a little shorter than the Z-Star but I need more testing

The real test will be into the wind.

Tough to beat the Snell and Z-Star or the Snell in the wind

 

Will report back

FYI - They are still blowing out the 2019 versions online at 2 for $45.  Looks like only yellow, matte white, matte green are left.

The original Maxfli Revolution was a solid inner core with rubber windings and urethane cover. It was a GREAT ball when released and I played it until the Pro V1 was released. I remember speaking with Callaway when they were getting into the ball business, that they were using it as the benchmark for its Rule 35 golf ball. In their independent testing they found it outperformed everything on the market. The Revolution Solid was the answer to the Pro V1 and was not good.

The Rev Solid was really the Maxfli response to the public pseudo-hysteria around the word "wound."  Thanks to media and marketing, golfers came to believe if there were *any* windings in a ball, it was somehow vastly inferior.

 

Ironically, the ball tests didn't show that, but why let facts get in the way of a story.  LOL  (edit:  ball test comment intended to compare the original Revolution, not the Solid.  clever me)

It’s funny you say that, I remember reading Golfweek magazine during that time and seeing two Titleist ads a few pages apart. One showed the Tour Prestige with the words “The leader in wound ball technology” and a few pages later the exact same ad showing the Pro V1 with the words “The leader in solid core technology”. It never got the credit, but the Nike Tour Accuracy (made by Bridgestone) was the solid core ball that changed the game and brought on the Pro V1 phenomenon.

I think the ball that changed the game was really the Strata.  Spalding just didn't have the money, so they don't get the credit.  🙂

It was a good one. I was an early adopter of solid core. I played the Spalding Tour Edition and loved it. In fact made a hole in one and won a Jeep while playing that ball. Then went to the Strata, but It was short for me. It was definitely the first multi layer ball but yes Spalding was definitely ahead of everyone else in technology and design.

I used to play the Spalding Tour Edition, but I thought it was a wound ball. According to this article, it was introduced in 1986.

Well the Rev Solid didn't sell much. Many that played it like myself thought it was absolute junk. The Rev Solid was a huge drop off from the Rev Wound. Wasn't even close. IIRC the Rev Solid was around for a year or so at most and was summarily replaced by the vastly better A10 ball in late 2001 or early 2002 which was replaced in 2003. The Rule 35 Red/Blue Callaway multi-layer solid core balls released in 2000 were also much better than the Rev Solid. The Rev Solid was one of the few missteps Maxfli made back in those days.

I feel the same as you about the Rev Solid.  I tried them and was completely underwhelmed. 

 

edit:  re-reading it, my earlier post looked like I was defending the Rev Solid with the Ball Test comment.  I meant to compare to the original Rev, not the solid.  Bad me, no treat.

 

The A10, much better.  Same with the M3 Red and M3 Black.  Played those for quite a while.

 

They did much better with the Black Max.  🙂

I must be in the minority about the Tour Edition, I found it to be incredibly short, especially off the driver. I remember Greg Norman quit using it for that reason.

The A10 is still the softest feeling ball I have ever hit.

I used to think that about the A10, the M3 Black, the original Revolution....   then I happened across a stash of HT-100s, they were being cleared out by 2nd Swing.  Apparently they'd gotten hold of a bunch of relatively recently produced HT's that were still being manufactured in Japan, well after production had stopped here in the USA.

 

This was within the last 8 years or so.  Then I found someone on ebay who was selling some of the same stash.

 

I played four dozen of them exclusively, until I got to the last dozen and decided to spare them for classic-only golf.  An amazing golf ball.  Not short, stupid good in the wind.

 

These HT were far softer than the Revolution.  Completely spoiled me, and it's a fair portion of the reason why I play the Duo Pro now.

 

The way some folks talk about balata, wishing they could still get their hands on some, is how I feel about the HT.  <shrug>

I play the Duo Pro as well but don't think it was as soft as the A10. Of course the A10 is firmly seen behind the mists of time and rose coloured glasses.

I agree with you, it's not.  But in urethane ball terms, it's as close as we can get to wound balls.

Do you guys actually use the alignment stripe on them when teeing off, or is it just a gimmick?

 

I bought 6 dozen btw... hopefully that will last me more than a few rounds.  🙂

 

I doubt that it makes any detectable difference.  I aim the alignment line towards the target off the tee anyways, regardless of the ball I'm using (haven't tried the 2021 Maxfli). 

 

If you paid 2 for $60 and it's convenient for you, I'd say return 4 dozen and then order the 48 pack for $104.98 online.

Thanks.  I got them 2 for $45 and had a GG gift card... ended up with 6 dozen lol.

Do you guys actually use the alignment stripe on them when teeing off, or is it just a gimmick?

I probably should, but I haven't all summer while playing these.

I just bought 6 dozen more of the 2019 yellow, and now have 15 dozen to hold me over for a few years.

I don't like the bigger alignment lines on the new ones.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
