Looking for comparisons between the U4 and U6/U6 tour soft.  Any differences in the cover construction or feel?  Golfworks still has the 2016 version of the U4 available.  According to them, this U4 is an 85 overall compression with a 55 core

U6 are 2 dozen for $35 at Dick's.  U4's are $35/dozen at Golfworks.  Seems like a no brainer.  I've used both and couldn't tell the difference with regards to performance at my skill level.

Did you notice any difference in the covers?  I know one of the versions of the U6 had what many described as a shinier firmer cover compared to the U4

The U4 was the best ball I've ever played.  I miss all that green side spin.

I don't recall there being a big difference in the covers.  If anything the U6 is more durable from a paint quality standpoint though.  I seem to remember the U4 was much like the FG Tour in that the shine went away quickly with a little play.  Some packs were better than others too.

I used the U4 for several years and thought it was as good as any tour level ball made, especially for the price.

Never played the U6 but at 2 for 1 sounds like a great deal.

The first gen u6 has a different cover then the 2nd gen, it was shinier and not as tacky to the touch, more like the TF Gamer Tour cover, also had tri-di dimples which were sort of a dimple in dimple design....I really like the first gen u6 lc off the tee, really long, but not as much spin into the green as the 2nd gen u6 soft and and the new uFli soft, which is a 4 pc. Ball like the old u4,u4x.

Pics of 1st Gen u6lc, 2nd gen u6, current uFli soft, and close up of the first gen u6lc with dimple pattern-

I've tried a sleeve of the Ufli Soft, and it's a very solid ball, and has the tackier, lower gloss cover (which I prefer).  It reminds me of the Srixon Q Star Tour--very good ball, great price point, especially when figuring in promo discounts.

Have you found the uFli soft to be about the same as the U6 soft?  Do you think they just gave it a new name?

Not the same. uFli Soft is a 4-pc ball while the U/6 Tour Soft is a 6-pc.

No, UFli Soft is a different ball. Softer than the U6, better spin, distance, and feel off the putter.

uFli is 4 pc, so not a direct replacement for the u6, I suspect it's more closely related to the u4 line.....will try to compare later.....I don't have enough time with it to say for sure.  It's soft name is not indicative of how it feels.... not to say it's hard either, but it's not in the same category as say a chrome soft or b330 rx, but it does feel softer than the u6lc and u6 soft.

That tri-dimple cover was the best wind ball I ever played.

Not the same. uFli Soft is a 4-pc ball while the U/6 Tour Soft is a 6-pc.

From what I gathered, the "6 piece" thing was just marketing.  It still is a 4 layer ball, which is why I was wondering if it is really any different than the U4

Sounds interesting.  I'm not into the mushy ultra soft balls, so maybe this one fits right in the middle somewhere, which is a nice option

The U/6 has 4 mantle layers, the core and a cover. It's a 6 piece ball.

I agree, but this version just didn't have the grab into the greens like the u4, 2nd gen u6, and the current uFli.

I really like the uFli soft....have several rds with it now and it's a winner....going to get a dzn of the speed to test, although that will next season.

if that’s the case i need to try the UFLI Soft.   The u6 Soft is my favorite white ball to play with.   And at the price, i love it more.
