-I have heard that they are supposed to be decent but some reviews would be nice.
What ball does it compare to?
I bought a dozen of the Gamer Tour last week but havent had a chance to put the ball in play yet. I did putt and chip with it on the range. If you are familiar with the Gamer V2 then the Gamer Tour will be very similar. The feel putting is almost identical to me. The Tour does spin significantly more around the greens. Not sure how they compare in distance as I have not hit any full shots yet with the Tour. Ive been playing the Gamer V2 for a couple years now and Ive been very happy with it. Was disappointed last year when the word was that the ball was being discontinued. Just 2 weeks ago was the first I heard of the new 2013 Gamer and Gamer Tour being at Dicks. The following week I saw them at Golf Galaxy. The new Gamer also comes in yellow. The Tour only comes in white.
I cannot comment on the Gamer Tour...but I have played the V2s for years. I do not have any of the issues others have had. I am longer with them and have WAY more control (less sidespin) than the premium balls. Bottom line is that my handicap dropped w/ the V2s...I went back to premium balls when I got below a 10 handicap...and promptly ballooned. The V2s stop fine on greens...and the lower side spin kept me in fairways. I just bought the Tours today. If this blizzard stops, I plan to pay them next week.
i play the gamer almost exclusively now, i had gone to the bridgestone E6 on a coworkers suggestion (golf course grounds crew), i then got a box of the gamers from a friend for getting him in free to play so i figured why not, lets give them a whirl!!
i would say they are on par or better than the E6 depending on the situation, right now i usually play 2 balls on the par 3 course we have on site an E6 and a gamer par is 29 and i score 35 average with the E6 and just a hair under 35 average with the gamer almost the same scores with a ball that is almost half the price (currently dicks has a dozen with hat for 14.98, yellows for same price no hat and gamer tours for 19.99 a dozen) and e6 are going for 26-28 a dozen..
