These are $30 on budget golf. I highly recommend them. Long and great spin around the green.

I was just at the range. They had a Wilson ball in the basket that said "tour" on it. I can't quite give the specifics but, it went straight. Hope that helped.

Duo-U, which is a crazy soft urethane, and fg-tour, which is an excellent ball. Altho the last gen fg tour was waaay longer. Like how on earth is this confirming long.

Duo U is my favorite ball to play on exec and short courses. It stops, spins, grabs and is soft.

I still have yet to try this FG your business

Getting no press and not available in many places.  I am very loyal to Wilson but not at $45. Play the Duo U with hickory and cold weather days.  BRING BACK THE FIRST GENERATION FG BLEMISH BALL AT $15  AND ITS A NO BRAINER.  LOVED THAT BALL QND THE PRICE.

FG tour, I actually found it to spin more than the prov1. Great ball and can be found cheap in places. The duo U is a very good performing ball as well.

The 2016 FG Tour spun like no other with a wedge from 120 in. It was also significantly shorter than any ball Iíve ever hit.

I am a long time user of the FG Tour.  In Oz we pay around $75 for a box of ProV's and the FG Tours I can get from a pro shop for $49 a box, $45 each if I buy two.

I love the FG Tour - the spin is as good as anything out there.  It feels soft off the club, and it performs around the green.  I can get 36 holes out of an FG Tour before it starts to look worn - a ProV is shagged after 18 holes.  I don't know about distance loss off the tee as I have been using the FG Tour for so long I don't really have any reference to compare it against.  I will put it this way - I am not unhappy with the distance off the tee.

The FG Tour is a great performing ball at a great price point.  The most under rated ball on the market IMHO.
