Which discontinued balls do you miss the most? which do you use now? - Page 3

Re: Which discontinued balls do you miss the most? which do you use now?

I saw a few people mention the callway red and blue's, they have these on clearance at my local walmart for 11$ a dozen, is it worth it to pick up a box or two?

Re: Which discontinued balls do you miss the most? which do you use now?

I can't believe no one has mentioned the Maxfli Fire balls... they have been under $15 a dozen quite some time, sometimes $9.99 and play very close the the NXT Tours. I have about five dozen left from when I stocked up at the 9.99 price, and I might just pick up another few dozen if I see them anywhere. So technically I don't miss them yet, but they are getting harder to find.

I also miss the old Starta Tours and Taylormade had a nice cheap ball about 10 yrs ago, but I don't recall the name.

now, i buy recycled balls and find them at night on a particular hole where there's always plenty of pro v's and callaways. it always amazes me how people will pay so much for golf balls, knowing full well they can't hit the ball straight, but i guess i can't complain cause they provide me with great balls!

wow, i cant believe someone else loved the maxfli revolution. that was easily the softest ball i've ever played. the slightly off yellow look to it was lovely as well when i found it. you could never find a completely white maxfli revolution. loved that ball.

So it seems a lot of folks like the old Callaway Blues and that Dicks often has older balls in stock,,, So one should check their local Dicks for Blue Balls?


sorry :)

In the 60s I played a Maxfli ball that had a circled green dot on it. I thought that was so cool. They also had balls with red dots, but I really loved those greens. In those days about the only thing we knew about golf balls was high compression (professionals only), medium compression (most recreational golfers), and low compression (juniors, women, the elderly). To this day I mark my ball with one green dot.

yeah... the Maxfli Revolution was my first thought when I read the title of the thread. At the time, it was one of my favourite balls.

Spalding Tour Edition, from around 1980. That was one of the first balls that promoted a high spin ball, and it lived up to the hype. The overall distance was a little short of the Titleist's of that era but man could you spin that ball around the greens.
If you liked Greg Norman in the '80s... you at least tried that ball. They weren't very expensive either

Maxfli from the 80's. I forget the name but it had a hexagon dimple design. Nice soft feel and long. Played that ball exclusively for a few years.

Ditto for me.  The original urethane covered Revolution was the most softest ball I've played.  I loved that feel off the putter face.

I miss the Callaway i(S). Now, I use all Pro V1 and Pro V1x. Occasionally, I throw in a Nike RZN or 20xi.

Titleist Pro Trajectory 90's and 100's and Maxfli HT 90's and 100's. Now I play mostly Titleist Solo's and ProV's, Bridgestone 330RX's and 330's, and Noodles.
