driver with a mid launch. Good but not great distance. They settle nicely on full iron shots. About two-three feet of
rollout on partial shots. As their name suggests, nice feel around the greens but don't expect much spin on really
short shots. I have no problem gaiming these for fall play. My regular gamer is the Hex Chrome.
Interesting that a thread has started on these, I was looking for some info/review just last night because I had
a really good day with it yesterday. I also have to say that I'm still dialing in my Speedline Tech driver that hits
a bit high for a 10.5* and I'm still adjusting to the light weight so I would have probably got better results with
my old driver that had been in the bag for 3 years.
Bottom line, I thinks it's worth the price to give it a try and I'll be going back for another box when these are gone.
Leaves are causing an increase in ball loss, even in the middle of the fairway.

- The color coding on the Velocity look like the colors used on the D2s
- The SL9000 packaging looks suspiciously like the new Gamer V2 packaging
This makes sense with Dick's acquiring the TF trademarks, and likely using them in house or killing them off.
Considering how many golf balls are now made in China, and that in many cases, the factories are providing an OEM type service, it wouldn't surprise me if Wilson stepped in and grabbed the exact same factories and suppliers to make near identical balls, just under different branding.
Also interesting to note that Wilson is doing this under the "Wilson" name and not "Wilson Staff". Good, as golfers know Wilson Staff means good quality, properly designed golf equipment. Bad, as the Wilson name has become synonymous with cruddy items like "Prostaff", "Ultra", and even worse, price-point driven balls such as the garbage "Maximum", and the enviro-garbage "Eco-Core".
I am a big Wilson fan from back in the day, have used a number of their newer clubs (which are nice), and do enjoy their range of "Staff" golf balls. However, I generally avoid "Wilson" branded products due to a lack of consistency (though I have a strong 5W that keeps making its way back into the bag). Funny enough, Wal-Mart's product page says:
Wilson Sporting Goods Tour Velocity Distance Golf Balls, 12pk:
- 2-piece construction
- Hard cover
- Optimized dimple pattern
- Maximum distance and roll
- Superior playability

Seems like over production killed that brand more than bad rep. Anyone trying a modern T F other than an XL walked away impressed at their performance-for-price.
