$25 3 piece urethane ball?

10 posts in this topic

Looking on the 2012 golf ball hot list and see the Maxfli U/3 ball... 3 piece, soft feel, low spin? Does anyone have any input on the ball because it looks like pretty good just dont like maxfli products.

Maxfli U/3

Price: $25/dozen
Medal: Silver

Performance: 4 stars
Innovation: 4.5 stars
Feel: 3.5 stars
Demand: 1 stars

Tech Talk: This three-piece ball has a soft urethane cover that's designed to increase wedge-shot spin, and its 422 large and shallow dimples promote a higher flight. The soft DuPont HPF 2000 polymer mantle layer is designed to reduce driver spin, specifically hooks and slices. The low-compression core (65) is aimed at increasing the ability of players with lower than tour-level swing speeds to compress the ball.

Verdict: For this type of construction, the price is relatively incredible, and the performance makes it worth a second look.

I haven't tried the U/3 but am currently playing the U/4 and I really like. It's as good as anything I've played before and I picked them up when Dick's was having a buy one get one sale so they came out just under $20/dozen.

Another option in that price range would be the new Gamer Tour. It's a three piece urethane covered ball.

Maxfli used to make some great cheap Tour-level balls back when they were owned by TaylorMade. Dick's Sporting Goods owns then now, right?

Yup... Dick's owns them. Still pretty good balls though.

    • Pace Problem
      Do I think our GM and Pro would adopt what I am suggesting as a course policy? No.  
    • New shoes
      I am looking for a new pair pair of golf shoes.  Since I am a cheapskate trying to stay under $100. Any ideas I like to walk and need them to be waterproof. 
    • Pace Problem
      You (or your mangers) still don't seem to understand that catching another group and playing through them is slower for both groups (and for any groups following them) than if they are all simply required by policy to keep the pace.  The rules are just swell, but playing through should only be something that happens in cases with extenuating circumstances, not a regular habit.  The Rules of Golf were never intended to be used as an excuse for a chronic inability to keep pace with the course. When the course allows certain groups make a habit of playing so slowly that other groups overtake them and have to play through, then you have failed in establishing and maintaining an effective pace of play policy.  That policy is mired in a time warp from the era when courses were never full.  Those days no longer exist and different steps must be taken if a course is really serious about their pace of play.  It's apparent that your course is more concerned about the minority than they are about the majority.  I hope that doesn't eventually bite them in the behind.
    • Pace Problem
      Again, that's been our tactic for seven years, and has not generally worked.  There is not a suggestion made in this thread that we don't do or haven't tried tom speed slow groups up.  Some do, but mostly slow groups stay slow. As a rule of thumb, marshaling 18 holes takes about an hour.  If you attempt to "teach" the first time around, and then discover that you're a bad teacher or the slow group is a bad student when you come back around, by the time you "enforce", you have lost half a round of golf and you have forced faster groups to play the slower group's pace. When I see a group going to 9 at 2 1/2 hours, I tend to say, 'Oh, shit." to myself, because I know we've lost the Pace and it's next to impossible to get it back until that group has left the course.  Sadly, because of staffing cutbacks, that's often the case.  When I say something to the GM or Pro like, "If you want a good pace, you have to be out there from the beginning," it is not received well. If, OTOH, our policy is Pace has Priority on the Course, let faster groups play through, and that is what they hear when they pay, and from the Starter, and that's what the sign in the carts' signholder says, they have no leg to stand on the first time the marshal comes by and sees groups piled up behind a slow group. Yeah, I know, it's different than what everyone's used to. But if you always do what you've always done, you always get what you've always got.

      I am indeed, All down the west coast here in ayrshire there are some fantastic courses and I always feel blessed to have played most of them. I recently played round the kintyre course at Turnberry for the first time it was a real gem. Sadly the 70mph winds did nothing to help scoring leading to a morale sapping 120 score but a great track none the less. I spent my youth years playing in troon on the public owned courses. A student of the links!
