Anyone try these? I found them online at golfgalaxy for $16.97 a dozen. I'm trying to find something decent/soft for under $20..

I picked up two dozen from Sam's club and will be stock pilling before they get taken of the shelves. Think it's a great ball, long, nice check on the green, all around great ball.

+1 I am not sure how this ball is getting overlooked. It comes in a nice yellow too. The ball has been marked down. Does anyone know if these balls are being discontinued?

I hit some of these when I got a free 2 pack a while back.  I remember them being a nice feeling ball, but nothing that would make me spend $20 a dozen on them.  OP, if you're looking for "something decent/soft under $20", then grab some TF D2 Feels.  I got hooked on these balls almost 10 years ago and along with Wilson 50 Elites, play them all fall/winter long.  Since I mentioned it, the Wilson are fantastic balls for like $12-13 a dozen.

For $19.xx for 2 dozen at Sam's, I couldn't not try them. Really great feeling ball on the soft side but not bad. Longer off irons than the RX. Can get some decent stop on the greens. About the same off the driver as the RX. Heck here in SC, I need a winter ball at least one or two days during the season.
Nice ball at this price

I haven't played the 'Extra Soft' but I have played its predecessor, the xFIXx. I found the xFIXx softer feeling, not as soft as a Wilson ball though. I swing around 102mph with a Driver and found no loss in distance. It wasn't my longest ball by any means but I didn't suffer with distance loss. I found this ball straight with a good amount of bite for a 2pc non-urethane. It certainly didn't roll out like other 2pc non-urethane balls. I had to play a strong draw around some trees for 130 yards and guess what... it actually drew really well.
I was very impressed with the xFIXx.
The reason why I stopped playing them was due to a couple of flyers I had when playing bump and runs from about 30 yards out. HTH.

Are these going away? First Dick's mark them down to 16.97 and about three months later so has golf galaxy. Not sure if I need to stock up. It's a great cheap yellow ball with a firmish feel for a soft ball.

Bought a dozen a Dicks because they were so cheap.  I usually play the RXS.

The biggest thing I noticed is that they were a full club longer for me off the irons.  I used it the last two holes of my round and flew both greens.  It's a different feel than the RXS - more 'super ball' like. It wants to fly straight.  It felt fine to chip/putt.

Not a bad ball. But I'd need to recalibrate my iron distances to play them.
