Let me preface this by saying I am Titleist player from way back.. So far back my first set of irons were a 2 through PW 990's. With this said Titleist could produce a run of baked beans and I'd be immediately looking for my nearest supermarket such is my respect for the brand.
I was lucky enough to be involved with the pre release testing and was asked to firstly test the ball in various conditions and reply back with what I thought, how it performed etc etc.
My initial thoughts were that the prototype Pro V1x was slightly longer but (for me) spun a lot less with the woods and longer irons. If I could have produced a ball - these two points would have been at the top of the list! I, like many of you reading this have a miss ..... mine just happens to be having the ability to loose the ball right with a slice when I get lazy.
It's now winter and only now am I realising the huge benefits that the newer Pro V1x brings ..... The gap between the feel of the softer Pro V1 and the Pro V1x is drastically reduced and the lower spin seems to allow the ball pierce the air and fly straighter. The ball was sold saying "it would hold its colour longer" - another correct point!
If you are looking for a ball that will perform .... Get all over these! Well done Titleist! .... AGAIN!
Bring on Spring and eventually, Summer!
