If you play golf on a regular basis you will be aware that over the years you go through a vast amount of balls. When it comes to losing balls I do quite well, I don't have a really long drive which means more often than not I hit it an average distance down the middle of the fairway. It's rare I find myself shooting into the trees or splashing into the ponds. Even when you are reasonably accurate though the fact is that you will lose golf balls. Hence the need for new ones. Over the years I have bought many different brands of golf ball, I have also found quite a few that I end up using for a few rounds. As you play you learn what balls suit your game and which ones do not.
So this brings us to Maxfli. Maxfli are a company that produce a wide range of golf balls. As the name suggest the company tries to give it's balls the maximum flight which usually leads to longer shots and higher trajectory. This is something that I like in a golf ball because as I mentioned I'm not the longest off the tee. So this particular review is for the Maxfli CD-90. A ball that has been around for quite a number of years now and in more recent years seems to have taken a back seat as new and better balls come along.
The first thing that strikes me when I use this ball is the clean crisp sound it makes when you drive it. Some balls produce a dull thud which I find quite unpleasant. The Maxfli CD-90 has a nice sharp ting sound when you catch it just right. The name Maxfli is appropriate in this case as this ball does travel further than quite a few balls I have used over the years. It is nothing revolutionary in this regard but it does give you a decent distance.
All round feel for this ball is average. When I'm playing shots around the green I do find it can be a little tricky to control. The ball is not easy to add spin to and it is not always easy to get the ball to sit down on the greens. Quite often you will see it bounces a little more than you might want it to when it hit's the green.
The fact is these balls don't seem to be available anymore if you want to buy them brand new. The technology has moved on and Maxfli have moved on to bigger and better things. You may still find these balls on eBay or things like this and they do tend to be pretty good value for a decent golf ball. If you do come across one of these then I would say it is a decent golf ball that still has it's place in the game. Although you are unlikely to see many professionals using these balls anymore they still come in handy for us mere amateurs. Overall then I would say this is a good quality golf ball that maybe has just become a little outdated. Ten years ago this would have been excellent, now though it is just a standard Maxfli ball with nothing overly special about it.
