Q: Did Adidas sell Maxfli to Dick's Sporting Goods?

A Yes they did, the sale occurred on the 11th of February, 2008. Dick's Sporting Goods purchased the trademark to Maxfli (they still own Maxfli) and that means they purchased the 'rights' to all the products related to the trademark (all of Maxfli's products). Maxfli was originally created by the Dunlop Corporation, and has remained as a subsidiary of larger companies throughout it's history. Adidas acquired Taylormade Golf and Maxfli in 2005 when they purchased the Salomon Group; the Salomon Group was a French company who owned a wide range of sports brands. Taylormade Golf was eventually renamed to TaylorMade-adidas Golf (TMaG), and when Adidas sold Maxfli they kept all the golf ball, and other golfing related patents, that Maxfli owned. This meant that Adidas could generate a new range of TaylorMade-adidas Golf (TMaG) golf balls and clubs based upon Maxfli patented technologies. However, Dick's Sporting Goods can still produce and sell the following Maxfli golf balls: C3, VT2, VT3,, TJB, Tour, Revolution, Red Max, Black Max, Max Distance, A10, A3, and M3.
