 I have no idea whether the aerodynamics bit is real or marketing hype but I do know my wife hit the ball further than she ever has in her life playing an SR1 that she found on the course.   Whether that was coincidence or not, I don't know.   But  I am absolutely postive that sales numbers don't in and of themselves prove a damn thing.  Being the best selling ball doesn't make it a better ball, let alone the best ball for everyone or for anyone actually.   It just means...
I'm not sure you can really compare sports legends of different eras against each other, but for some reason we all want to do it.   Comparing Unitas to Montana to Manning, or Petty to Earnhardt to Johnson, seems pointless since they competed against different people in their prime.   The same applies to this discussion..    Nicklaus played in a different era against different competition than Hogan did..     But since we are doing it anyway and performance in majors seems...
I played the Gamer V2 before Dick's bought Top Flite.  I haven't personally played the Gamer Tour but a couple of guys I know have.   They are raving about this ball and claim it to be the best thing since sliced bread.   As much as I liked the old Gamer V2, I have been thinking about trying the Gamer Tour..
48 grams!?!?!?!   I thought the factory 13 gram weight in the heel of my Razr Fit Xtreme was a load....   48 grams is a LOT of weight you are moving around!!
Unless it sounds funny when it makes contact with a ball, I'd play it and not worry about it until (unless) it breaks. 
Currently, my top end is   Callaway Razr Fit Xtreme 9.5* driver Callaway Diablo Octane 15*  3W Callaway Razr X 3 hybrid (21*)
Since my 82, I have had rounds (in order) of 91, 95, 93, 86 & 87.    So I still have a ways to go to be shooting low to mid 80's a quarter of the time.    Today's round (the 87) included two triples (including one hole I four-putted) and one double bogey.    I hit 11 fairways but only 2 greens.  Thankfully, except for that one 4-putt, I was doing pretty good with the flatstick and the short game as I also had nine 1-putts.
Way to go!!  
My longest was 325 but that was down hill on a rock hard fairway.   My longest on flat ground is 305 and that was just about as much of a fluke as the 325 shot.    I've hit a few out to about 280 also  but I'm far more likely to be in the 240-250 range during a typical round.
