Dicks has the old Gamer Tour on their site with the same description from 2013.  The Top-Flite site has the new Gamer Tour box and mentions an improved, more durable cover.  I suspect (hope) they are selling off last years production while they get the new Gamer Tours to the stores.  However, it appears you can get the mew Tours on-line.  And I don't know what happened to the Gamer S but it is the only TF ball listed in the GD spin ratings.

And as others have noted, the 2014 Gamer has the exact same specs as the excellent V2 of a couple of years ago.

I like the TF Gamer, and Gamer Tour, but not at this time of year. The temps have been in the mid 50's and they feel like rocks, but during the summer season, they are great balls. They're straight and go a mile (well 230 yards for me).

I've really like the regular gamer and it has performed well for me in early and regular season play here in the Northeast!!! When the V2's were no longer made the regular gamers have been just as satisfying since they have come out!!! I'm a big fan of them and switch back and forth between the gamer and Prov1's!!!

I started playing the V2 2 years ago. Picked up a bunch off RBG, then orders a ton last year off Knetgolf.

Perfect ball for me long off the tee, good distance control and decent spin.

If you really want me to rehash this I will, (my family is already sick of hearing about it) LOL.

Stoneybrook East, 15th hole 132 over water into a wind.  I grabbed 8 iron, looked good all the way.  Hit the left side of the green and kicked right about 8 feet into the hole.  The worst part is with my bad eyesight, I couldn't see it roll in.  I knew it was going to be good and then my partner yelled " it went in!"  Unbelievable feeling.

I also got my first (and so far only) hole in one with a V2 Gamer. A LOT of people laugh when they see that I am using a Top Flite ball, until I get it to check up the same as their V1's.

It is almost to the point where I don't want to say what ball I am using when asked, too many snickers and comments.  I admit I used to be an anti top flite guy but for the price it is an amazing golf ball.

I was just down there in February playing a number of courses, and Stoneybrook East was one of them. I shot pretty good that day, had an 81. Not bad for a 14 capper. I almost got a hole in one a few days ago, I don't know how it stayed out. It landed 3 feet in front of the pin and ended 1 foot past, in a direct line with the hole. Oh well, maybe someday. Congrats again.

It's a great ball, especially the Gamer Tour. I hit one into the woods, it's a buck. Someone hits a ProV1 into the woods, it's - $3.50 !
I am also a believer that if you could switch the logos on the Gamer and a ProV, most golfers couldn't pick out the ProV from the GT.

I picked up 3 for $30 at Black Friday last year and decided to play all 18 with these today since the course is really soft and moist.  With the condition as they were, there was little to no advantage playing my normal XV.

     Gotta say I am not sure if there is a better value for non Urethane ball. Felt great off the irons, tad firm off the putter but nothing that caused any performance issue. The Yellow really stood out which is always a plus. Didn't lose the ball and still looks in pretty good shape even after a couple trees and plenty of full wedge shots.

     Not sure I would play it in August on super firm baked greens, but very pleased overall.

You can't beat the Gamer series for value - especially if you make the purchase during Black Friday,

I think it was summer of 2016, Dick's ran a flash sale, I stacked a couple of coupon codes, and I ended up with 6 dozen Gamer Tours for $45.
