Achieve ridiculous length off the tee with the Top Flite XL Distance. XL Golf Balls have been a reliable selection for distance, durability and value for nearly 30 years.
Don’t expect to hit an approach shot and have the ball spin backwards, get used to a more “bump and run” type of game. There is a reason this bad boy got the nick name “Rockflite”. It feels like you just teed up a rock and it flies straight and true.
This is a 2 piece ball that is designer for distance and durability, and durable it is. If you don’t lose a ball I can see it being in play for many rounds (years).
How can I really knock this ball? It does what is says and what it has done forever. It’s a beast and could quite possibly be the longest ball you will ever hit. Ask the big hitters at the RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship.
I gave it 3 stars and an overall rating of 7.4 because it does exactly what it is supposed to do and for a great price. It wouldn’t be my choice for throwing darts at pins but then again I care about shooting low numbers and having some feel.
