Well one thing is for sure.  I can spray them in the woods to my heart is content now without fear.

That said, DSG must be killing the Gamer.  I think that is the only explanation for such a fire sale.  A lot of people will not want pay close to full retail for this series from here forward.  Why would you?  The deal is always coming back.  Even if they are upgrading the Gamer who would pay close to retail?

Just checked your profile to see where you live... figured if DSG gets rid of them I could just "borrow" some from you in 20 years!  Or you could just gift them along on OUR birthday

I'm not as bad the Nike RZN guy!  22 dozen Gamers costs about $170 or less than 4 new boxes of ProV1X right now.

They're establishing brand. With a new Gamer, many will flock back at their standard 2 for 25. Buy 4 and stack a 10 coupon and you're all set or bogo for Black Friday. DSG balls are just cheap with a good quality.

I wish I could have gotten the yellow ones but when I checked days ago they only had like one box available.  I had a $10 reward thing to use up so I bought enough to get free shipping and the $10 off!

Great just what I needed was more golf balls and white ones too!  I hope I like them cause I got quite a few coming!!!
I know you like the XV,I can tell you the Gamer is just as good if not better in the wind.  It plays very comparable to the XV.  Even in the white you should be extremely impressed.

These shipped really fast...8 dozen at my door in only a few days.  Haven't tried them yet, but at $7.50 / dozen for a new 3 piece ball, I'm going to give them a whirl.

For a cheap 3 piece ball I don't think you can really go wrong.  If you don't like them that much you can always sell them here or shag bag'em, use them for practice

I appreciate the gesture but since I bought a bunch of the Topflite Gamer's just now and some Srixon's during their crazy deal, I better hold off from buying anymore golf balls.

Congrats!

I got my only hole in one back in 2005 using the Maxfli Noodle cause it was November here in Michigan!  lol

I got out for a round today and tried the Gamer for the first time!  It is not a bad ball at all and since I got them for like $6.60 a dozen after a code, I will play them off/on for some time!  :)

Both 3 piece balls. Gamer (Surlyn Cover) - Gamer Tour (Urethane Cover). That and a small/marginal price difference.

Based on the first post of the thread and price mentioned it appears the OP bought the standard surlyn Gamer. DSG has crazy sales on the Top Flite and Maxfli lines of balls as they are DSG/Golf Galaxy in house brands.

I like the Gamer Tour better around the greens, but it is definitely shorter than the regular Gamer in my experience.

The Gamersofts are gone from DSG retail. The Gamers are dwindling. Anyone in the know? Surely, we're do for a new gamersoft and gamer. I hope it is not in matte. Just a shiny yellow would be nice!
