Information on Top Flite Golf Balls

By Darin McGilvra

Top-Flite golf balls were originally made by Spalding, with the first Top-Flites coming out in 1971. Callaway Golf bought the Top-Flite brand and the manufacturing facilities in 2003 and has been making Top-Flite golf balls ever since. Top-Flite currently makes five different models.


The Gamer is constructed with three pieces instead of the normal two, has an Ionomer cover, a Polybutadiene core and a seamless dimple-in-dimple aerodynamic cover pattern.


Top-Flite advertises Freak as its longest golf ball. Its core and cover are made of the same materials as the Gamer but are manufactured differently to produce maximum distance. It also has the seamless dimple-in-dimple cover pattern.


The D2 line has four different versions designed for different purposes: Distance, Feel, Straight and Diva. The Diva is designed specifically for women. All D2 balls have the seamless dimple-in-dimple pattern and a low compression core.


The XL has three different versions: Distance, Straight and Distance Yellow, which is just the XL Distance colored yellow. All three have a normal dimple pattern and a high-energy core.


The XL5000 has three different versions: Super Long, Super Soft and Super Straight. All three have a normal dimple pattern.
