A four-piece construction designed for better players looking for maximum distance

Cover: Urethane
Colors: Gloss White, Matte White

Reasons to buy

+
Impressive distance off the tee
+
Performs well in windy conditions

Firmer feel around the greens won’t appeal to all

The Tour X is one of two premium golf ball offerings from Maxfli but it differs quite a bit from the other option, the Tour model. Most notably the Tour X is a four-piece construction and it features a slightly larger core, design elements that have been utilized to deliver low spin off the tee, making it a great choice for players with faster swing speeds  The Tour X does, however, utilize a urethane cover to provide ample control from 100 yards and in but overall it does feel firmer than the Tour. The X model also features center of gravity balancing to ensure optimal performance and it is available in Gloss White and Matte White colors.

Also helping create more ball speed of the tee is a larger, redesigned core that improves energy transfer at impact. The Maxfli Tour also has been CG balanced to increase consistency on all shots, and from a color standpoint is available in Gloss White, Matte White, and Gloss Yellow.

Maxfli TriFli Golf Ball

Maxfli TriFli Golf Ball

A unique construction approach that delivers good all-around performance at a great price

Specifications

Contruction: Three-piece
Cover: Ionomer
Color: Gloss White

Reasons to buy

+
Soft feel from tee to green
+
Delivers low spin off the driver

Reasons to avoid

-
Less short game spin than the Tour models

The Maxfli TriFli is one of the more unique golf balls on the market. It’s a three-piece construction but unlike most three- or four-piece golf balls it does not have a urethane cover. Instead, the TriFli utilizes a soft ionomer cover, which allows this golf ball to come in at an impressive price for the tee-to-green performance it provides. Also unique for a three-piece ball is a compression rating of just 45, which promotes soft feel with every club, but the TriFli’s mantle layer helps provide ball speeds off the tee that defy the soft feel. The three layers also help create spin in the short game but the TriFli won’t spin as much as the Tour models.

Fun color options to choose from
+
Exceptionally soft feel through the bag

Reasons to avoid

-
Low spin inside 100 yards

As its name would suggest, the Maxfli SoftFli provides golfers with incredibly soft feel on every shot they play. In fact, the SoftFli’s compression of 35 makes it one of the softest golf balls available. That said, its core has been redesigned to promote low spin off the tee, while Maxfli’s icosahedron dimple pattern promotes higher launch conditions, a combination that helps players maximize carry and total distance in the long game. The SoftFli lineup also features one of the most expansive color collections available in the golf ball market, including a Matte Pink that is especially popular with women.

Maxfli StraightFli Golf Ball

An exceptional value that helps golfers on a budget enjoy more accuracy on full shots

Specifications

Construction: Two-piece
Cover: Ionomer
Colors: Gloss White, Matte Green, Matte Orange

Reasons to buy

+
More greenside control than one might expect
+
Provides impressive distance in the long game

Reasons to avoid

-
Firmer feel won’t appeal to everyone

While the StaightFli shares a similar name to the SoftFli, they are two very different golf balls. Most notably, the StraightFli is a firmer feeling golf ball, which should appeal to players who enjoy auditory feedback on full shots. Additionally, the StraightFil features an octahedron dimple pattern that consists of dimples that vary in size, a design that MaxFli believes optimizes launch and promotes increased accuracy on full shots. The StraightFli, while it feels firmer than the SoftFli, does offer similar greenside control, and it is available in Gloss White, Matte Green, and Matte Orange.

Specifications

Cover: Ionomer

Reasons to avoid

Stopping power can be an issue

Maxfli also offers its SoftFli golf ball in a 48-pack to give golfers who are looking for a budget golf ball even more value. The SoftFli balls that are available in the 48-packs are only available in gloss white as opposed to the multiple matte color options that are offered in standard dozens. Otherwise, however, golfers can expect the same performance, including impressive distance on full shots and exceptionally soft feel from tee to green and especially when putting.

Maxfli StraightFli 48 Pack Golf Ball

Incredible distance and an incredible price point for golfers in need of more distance in a budget golf ball

Specifications

Construction: Two-piece
Cover: Ionomer
Color: Gloss White

Reasons to buy

+
Performs well from a durability standpoint
+
Excellent value in its category price wise

Reasons to avoid

-
Firmer feel won’t suit every golfer

For golfers who want to maximize value in a budget golf ball that provides a strong combination of distance and accuracy, Maxfli offers its StraightFli golf balls in 48-packs as well as traditional dozens. The only difference, other than additional savings, between a 48-pack and a box of 12 is color choice, as the 48-packs are only available in the Gloss White. Beyond that, however, it’s the same ball, which is one of the best in its category at this price point.

FAQs

Is Maxfli a good golf ball brand?

Maxfli golf balls have enjoyed increasing popularity in recent years thanks in large part to the fact that there are different models available to meet the needs of any caliber of golfer and those models always are competitive in terms of performance. Additionally, whether it’s a premium golf ball like the Tour or Tour X or a budget golf ball like the StraightFli or SoftFli, Maxfli also is highly competitive across every category when it comes to price point.

Who makes Maxfli golf balls?

Maxfli has a storied history in the game of golf, especially when it comes to golf balls. During the 1980s and 1990s, Maxfli HT and Revolution golf balls were among the most popular in the game and the company arguably rivaled Titleist as the world’s most popular golf ball manufacturer. The company’s commercial success started to slide in the early 2000s after being purchased by TaylorMade, but the brand has enjoyed a resurgence since being acquired in 2008 by Dick’s Sporting Goods, which continues to oversee Maxfli golf ball production to this day.

Chris joined Golf Monthly in February of 2022, becoming the organization’s first full-time staff writer in the United States. In his role at Golf Monthly, Chris reviews a broad spectrum of golf equipment, ranging from the latest in golf clubs to what’s new in the world of golf technology. His vast experience in the game allows him to look beyond the marketing hype to judge the merits of the latest equipment for golfers of all ability levels. As for the trend in golf equipment that Chris has been most impressed with in recent years, the Players Distance Iron category would earn that distinction, as golfers now have far better options for irons that provide the assistance that so many need in terms of distance and forgiveness without forcing them to sacrifice look and feel.


On a personal level, Chris played college golf and was a three-year letterwinner and two-year captain at Lynchburg College in Virginia and later spent two years as the assistant golf coach at the University of Virginia. The vast majority of his professional career, however, has been spent as a sports writer and editor. In the early phases of his career, he covered college football, college basketball, and golf for different newspapers and websites before turning his attention solely to golf in 2011. Over the course of the past decade, Chris managed the Instruction Blog for GolfChannel.com and more recently created equipment-related content for TGW.com and 2ndSwing.com.


An avid player, Chris currently maintains a handicap index of 2.4 and has a career-low round of 66, which he has shot on three occasions. He lives about 20 miles north of Atlanta in Roswell, Georgia, with his wife, Stacey, and is a member at Atlanta National Golf Club.
