Advantages: Cheap, Durable
Disadvantages: Nothing Special
I have recently been playing quite a bit of golf. It's a sport I have enjoyed for a long time and play as often as I can, which usually means not very often at all. If you have read any of my recent reviews you will notice I have done a few golf ball reviews. I am one of those golfers who can rarely settle on any one ball. I just tend to use what I get given, what I find, or what ever balls are on offer in the shops. That means I've used quite a few different balls over the years. So when I spotted the Maxfli Revolution balls on the Dooyoo list I thought I should probably give them a review.
I think it must be around ten years ago when I first used a Maxfli ball. I actually found one and as it looked in new condition I started playing with it. To be honest it wasn't really anything all that special, it was just a run of the mill ball that seemed decent enough. A few years later a ball a small pack of these, I think it was only a tube of three balls but they were going cheap at the checkout so I thought I'd pop them in my basket. These balls were indeed the Maxfli Revolutions. These balls have been around for quite a few years, Maxfli do seem to bring out new improved versions of the ball from time to time, but generally they are all pretty much the same.
So, what can I tell you about the Maxfli ball? Well it's small, round, hard and white. But I am guessing you already new that. The Maxfli ball is supposed to give you extra distance, hence the name Maxfli or Maximum Flight. Although I do get a reasonable distance out of these balls I would not say I get any extra distance. I would say there are other balls on the market that fly further. They have a reasonable feel to them, they make a nice crisp sound when they ping of my driver, but again, there are other balls that I prefer in this regard.
I would say that the balls seem to be quite durable. As you use a golf ball it will start to get damaged, the Maxfli ball seems to last a little longer than some balls I have used. Again though I would not say it's the most durable ball I have ever used. When you hit the Maxfli ball it does stay hit, meaning it flies straight and true, as long as you have played a good shot that is.
Price wise I would say these are about middle of the road. On average you will be looking at paying around £1 per ball, you may find them slightly cheaper if you shop around a little bit. So for value I would say they are no to bad, they are a good quality ball at a fair price and as they are quite durable they tend to be decent value. Overall though I would say these are not my favourite ball. I would use this one if there was little else in my bag, but there are quite a few other balls I would choose ahead of this one. So some people may use this ball and find it is ideal for their needs, but for me it does not quite make the overall grade. A good ball but not what I would class as a great ball.
Summary: An Average Ball
