Today's Dick's Flash Sale:  Two-for-one on Maxfli U6 Tour x.  $50 for four dozen really good premium balls.  Added a $8 glove to get free shipping over $49. Could have probably just added the 3-ball sleeve of Gamer Tour's, but needed a glove anyway...

Top Flite Gamer Tour are $10 per dozen.
Rest of Gamer series are $8 each.

They who are enamoured of practice
without knowledge are like the mariner
going to sea without a rudder or compass
and who navigates without a course.

I bought the U6x last week when they were buy two get one free. Should have held off for one week. I usually play the U6 to start the year when my game is less polished.

U6X is one of the worst feeling and sounding balls I ever hit. I still have some I will end up giving away. Personally would never repurchase at any price.

Nice find,  I've been wanting to try both of these.  Thanks!

The U6X might be the hardest ball I've ever felt. I thought the regular U6 felt like a ProV1x or XV.

Looks like they are out of the U/6 X.  Was reading reviews and now I can only put 1 in my cart at DSG and GGs websites.

U/6 X is the clickiest sounding ball I have ever hit.  Clicks loudly off irons and even the putter.

Have you played either of the other 2 versions? They also click pretty loud too. I like the click and feel of the Tour Soft off the putter though.

I stocked up last year when they were 2 dozen for $22. I got 2 dozen of each of the 3 versions. The tour soft is a bit mushy and spiny for my liking. I use them as my winter round balls when itís below 50. The X is a bit harsh feeling for me and I pretty much just save those for scrambles now when I donít mind losing a ball. They still perform way better than a cheap distance ball and for the price, Iím glad I got them. The tour U6 is a great all around ball. I use it when playing by myself after work or for those days when playing with buddies and drinking lots of beers.  They are very comparable to the pro v and for the price, itís a crazy good deal. I would personally rather play those than a pro v right now but Iím sure a lot of hat has to do with my comfort level. When Iím playing a round for good money, I still go with the tm Tp5x. They are my favorite balls out there as of right now.

I bought some U6 when there was a similar deal. It felt harder than a Pro V1 which was fine but overall didn’t really do much for me even at the price. The performance pack Z Stars is a superior ball at the same price point. Unsure if they have any left. I ended up giving two boxes of the U6 to my dad.

Odd. Their shipping notifications suggest all five items I ordered are shipping separately from different origins

This isn't uncommon for DSG. I don't see how it's cost efficient but they do this all the time.

Or just go to dickssportinggoods.com and there is usually either a pop up when you first get to the site or a banner to kick on in bright red that says ďFLASH SALE TODAY ONLY!Ē....

They actually ship from their stores so itís common to receive items from multiple locations.

I have both the regular U/6 and soft versions but have not played them......yet.  The U/4X was one of the best balls.  Too bad the 6X was not the same.

I think that is just the newer version (or same version in a new box).  In store they are side by side and priced the same, the older model had just a few boxes left while there were a lot of the ones you showed.  The employee said he thought it was just a new box but didn't really seem to know.

Concur. I ordered 8 items in the same order once. I received 8 separate packages. All shipped free so they had to pay close to what I paid total for 8 items in shipping charges. More power to them but it does seem an inefficient method.

They are also crazy fast sometimes. I ordered something once on a Thursday morning and it arrived on Friday. The other items all arrived (shipped separate of course) by Monday.
