Since I am a cheapass and refuse to pay more than 25 bucks for a dozen balls, I went out and bought a 15 pack of these for the princely sum of 20 bucks.

I figured a true 3 piece for 20 bucks? How bad can it be?

Well, it's not HORRIBLE, but it's not all that either.

From their bullet points:

3–Piece Construction – Total performance from tee to green.

Maybe. This:

# Soft, Thin Ionomer Cover – Provides Tour-like spin and control around the greens.

No. It's no huge improvement over a decent soft 2 piece, and it sure isn't as good as a big money 3 or 4 piece.

Dimple in Dimple Aerodynamics – The award-winning proprietary design uses a unique surface to maintain spin longer throughout flight, allowing the Gamer V2 to hold its line and maintain lift longer without ballooning. Lesser balls lose spin at the apex of flight, decreasing speed. When they lose lift and knuckleball out of the sky it sacrifices distance. Dimple in Dimple Aerodynamics helps maintain spin at the apex, delivering maximum distance through superior design rather than hard ball compressions.

Actually may be something to that. Seems to hold a line, even if you don't want it to. And it's decently long without being a rock. Also doesn't seem to bounce and run all over the place, but it's hard to REALLY tell on our still somewhat soft fairways.

Here's the issue I have:

The new Gamer V2 features all the 3-piece performance of the original Gamer with even more distance, softer feel and better durability.

I have to assume that the previous version basically exploded into it's components about halfway through the round, or upon striking one of the numerous trees we have up here. I don't even want to imagine the carnage resulting from a desert round!

The 'Better' version shreds like confetti after a few decently struck wedge shots, which seems out of character for a Rock Flite.

All in all, I'm not pissed at the price point, but I'll probably go back to an AD333 or one of the Precepts the next time.
