Yep and I think GG has 20% off $100 today so if they are on sale buy 6 dozen for $14.15 per dozen.

I tried it and it wouldn't apply the 20%. if anyone has success please share.
  Hmmmm 2 weeks ago Dicks had the same deal and it took the code. That sucks maybe last time they forgot to exclude those balls.

Come to think of it, maybe the Dicks was $20 off $100 and not 20%

Still on sale at Dicks for 2 for $35 and for today and tomorrow you get an extra 20% off. 4 dozen is $56!!!!! Not saying it is the ball for everyone but I would give it a try to see if it works for you at $14 a dozen.

Play again today with the U/6 regular.  Inside 100 yards it is probably my favorite ball ever!!

If I could somehow combine the 2017 XV off the driver and this off the short clubs I think it would be ridiculous.

  I think Snell MTB is as close as I could get to getting both these in 1 ball. at $14 a dozen U/6 is MONEY!!

Thanks for mentioning the U/6 Tour early in this thread. I had bought 6 dz of the X version and after reading your post I went and traded some at my local store for the U/6 Tour. Ball is great from 150 and in for me (8I thru SW), Ball seems to end up a foot from my pitch mark every time. Good enough off the tee and great from 150 and in. Again, thank you.

No problem, it really is fantastic if people can get over the name on the ball isn't one of the big boys.

     Again at $29.99 I wasn't intrigued enough to give them a go.... at $14 it makes me smile really big every time I tee one up!

Get the Tour Soft version, or at least get a box or three.  They are not a mushy soft ball by any means, just normal firmness.  The Tour X is a very firm ball, and even the regular model is quite firm.

It worked! I just ended up ordering a box of the U6 and the U6 Soft. I really like the Snell MTB and Vice Soft, so I am hoping to use these in the fall when it's so easy to lose balls in the leaves.

I played the Tour X last week.  I was pleasantly surprised for the price.  I was tearing it up as best I could with a new wedge.  I would have to switch out to a new ball after 12-13 holes.  

Spin was good, I could bring it back as well as any other urethane ball.  It's definitely hard, maybe a touch firmer than the Pro V1x.  Distance seemed in-line with every other tour ball I've played.  Spin off the tee was low from what I could tell.

If you're a X high compression player who needs a beater ball, don't hesitate to give this a shot.  Especially at 2 dozen for $35.  It did everything I wanted, just isn't too durable.  At that price point, I can tolerate something not making it through 18 holes (although I'm bound to lose one before that anyway).

Just returned a jacket at dicks and saw the deal, 2 boxes for 35 bucks. I had a 15% off within 3 hours because of the return so got both for 28 bucks!  Got the tour as it sees the x would be too hard. I like the x versions of balls but the xv Srixon is just a touch firm for my liking so I guess we will see!

Interesting observation: I think it is possible that the Maxfli U/6 Tour is the same ball as the Honma TW-G6 found in the Golf Digest Hot List this year. I cut open a U/6 Tour to compare with image in Golf Digest and they look pretty much the same in construction and layer sizes. Both have 336 dimples. Both are also made in Taiwan.

$15 per dozen is a lot less than $65!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Doing some digging and found the Forte Apex 6 golf ball in Australia is made by Foremost Golf in Taiwan. Here is a screenshot from the PluggedinGolf review and the ball looks just like my image right above. I am guessing Foremost made the Maxfli U/6 Tour series and also makes Forte and Honma balls.

You can get Maxfli U/6 Tour balls at Dicks for 2 for $35 whereas those others are $65 or more.

Just read that Foremost Golf appears to be mfg for the balls in the Titleist lawsuit (Vice, KickX, etc).

I would recommend that anyone looking for a cheap urethane ball take a look at one of the three models (soft, x, or reg) for @ 2 for $30.  I use this coupon when I buy them in store to get an extra $10 off. I got 4 for $50!!!!!

I don't know if it will work outside NJ but here is the coupon that you can have them scan at the register from your phone:
