Gamer V2 2010 vs 2012

11 posts in this topic

Is there much difference? I'm having a hard time finding the newer version for less than $20 a dozen.

i'm wondering the same thing.  hell, how do i tell if i got the 2010 or 2012 version?  i just bought two boxes...they were the black box, so i think they are the newer version of the ball (i thought the green box was the original)

but i'm not as smart as i look, so...

Key thing is to get Gamer.v2, not the original. The .v2 version carries a little farther, and normally doesn't shred any

when you juice a short iron or wedge shot.

The outer box differerences are likely an ecology move. The new black outer box for the four sleeves opens at end flaps, rather than having a separate top lid and bottom. Probably cuts down amount of cardboard used by 40%.

I think you're right.. If TF had made even a cosmetic tweak to the ball, it would have been rechristened "Gamer.V3" with related marketing hoopla and a special monogrammed golf cap.

The V2 comes in 2 different boxes, the green box is older version, black is new.  I don't know if they changed the ball characteristics but it's not uncommon for manufacturers to do so without changing the name.  I found out there are 7 different versions of the Titleist NXT-Tour (first version was 2 piece, rest are 3) out there and the only visible difference between them is the ball alignment symbol pattern.

I've had some V2's in green boxes and some V2's in black boxes.  The green boxed balls had a different alignment marking on them (arrows in both directions) than the the black boxed version (arrow in only one direction).    That said, both were marketed as a 3 piece ball with the dimple-in-a-dimple technology and they both played the same for me.

If the alignment marking is different they are different versions but that doesn't mean the play characteristics were changed.  In the case of the NXT-Tour, play characteristics did change from version to version according to Golf Magazine though I didn't notice the difference when I played them.

From the limited research I've done on it, the only difference between the 2010 Gamer V2 and 2012 Gamer V2 is cosmetic... As others have said the 2010 version comes in a green box where the newer ones come in a more eco-friendly black box; in addition to that the side stamp has changed as well.

    • The official definition involves ability for male to hit 250 .. reach 470 in 2, or female to hit 210 and hit 400 yd. hole in 2. Informally, people probably view it more like GD: Similarly, various club pros have told me that a scratch golfer has a 2 HDCP or less. The USGA 2016 events site doesn't talk about scratch golfers, but it did specify max HI for amateurs entering its high-level tournaments: * US Open = 1.4
      * US Women's Open = 2.4
      * US Amateur = 2.4
      * US Women's Amateur = 5.4
      * US Senior Amateur = 7.4
      * US Women's Amateur = 18.4
    • You're forgetting that the handicaps throw out the worst ten.  So your true average is always going to be a few strokes higher than your handicap - unless you shoot the same score all the time.  Using me as an example - my handicap is 4.9 at the moment but if it was calculated using all 20 differentials, it would be 6.7. 79.5 guy would almost certainly be very close to a zero and 72 guy would likely be closer to a 5. :)
    • I see your point there. It's also interesting that he does not typically see it with driver where his contact is consistently to the heel side. I'm guessing that he tends to catch it toward the heel most of the time and the big draws result from hitting the sweet spot (as well as possibly better impact conditions). Might want to see what he does differently with these clubs in setup / swing and experiment with adopting the adjustment with the others, and then just tweak the path a bit so the draw isn't so big. Honestly you can't 'feel the spin' at impact, because the ball doesn't really spin until it leaves the clubface. You may feel more solid contact or better impact conditions that causes you to 'know' the spin that's likely to result.
    • I can definitely feel the extra spin at impact.  But, my movements during the swing feel the same to me and it looks the same to the people I am playing with. But, as soon as I hit it, I know it is long and left. Honestly, I wish I could repeat it.  But, I usually only do it 3-4 times per round.  I just can't figure out what I am doing to cause it. It has to be that I am swinging in to out and my right elbow gets away from my body causing the club face to close at impact rather than after. I just wish I knew what to work on to either do it all the time or to stop doing it. Golf is a great game!
    • Yes, lower initial ball flight but you cannot discount how much more and longer duration of lift the ball flight will get with added spin, which is result of differential between club path and verticality of face X speed at impact.  More the speed at impact, more the spin, more the lift, longer the ball will continue to rise and will have a higher apex but further out. When I said look for longer deeper divot, it is to see if in these particular cases he has more impact speed, which sustains directional inertia in downward direction for longer. In short, he is hitting it better on these shots, probably because of better weight transfer, and more refined turning rates and better impact position... I mean duh. :-))    Si.
