durability? any noticeable difference in distance from the V2?
I have only used them a couple rounds so far, but they are long and straight with decent action on the green. I don't think they will give you the same action as the ProV's and other tope balls, but at a 13hc I don't look for a whole lot of spin anyway. Just the same, my shots in have plenty of stop to them, just no backspin. The TF Gamer is the new name for the TF Gamer V2, they are the same ball. The tour, like you said, is a urethane covered ball that will provide action for those who can put that backspin on a golf ball. At the price they are, how can you beat them? When I hit one in the woods I don't fret too much, I'll give it a quick look and if I can't find it, oh well, let's move on. Usually I find so many other lost balls in the wood/water that I am swamped with extras, and alot of those I find are ProV's, BS 330's, etc. I don't get too excited over the high end balls I find, I like to stick with one ball type and use that only, and that is my Gamer and Gamer Tour.
BTW, the two rounds I used the Gamer I shot an 83(hard course) and a 79 on another course.
