I have read almost all the comments on the sites about the new X vs the V and wanted to share my thoughts. I seem to one of a rare group that isn't switching but sure was confused in beginning.
I am a long time X player, and have played both new ones this spring, on course and on track man to confirm what I saw on the course.
So many people have written they are switching to the new ProV from old X.
After testing here are my thoughts, for anyone who may be confused:
1) I am staying with the new X. It flies higher than the V for sure, on irons and driver, but in my opinion holds line just fine, no dropping out of sky.
2) The V irons fly lower for sure, and is a great ball, I prefer High towering irons that hold line and stop where I hit it, even in the wind, and the new X does that for me. Confirmed on trackman.
I also get better ball speed on all clubs with the new X than I did with the new V. Trackman again confirms.
3)Off the driver the X also flies higher and consistent. The V lower and long but I prefer the flight of the X as mentioned I like to tower it and wind doesn't seem to knock it down, nor did I lose any distance but rather a touch more distance with the X. (likely due to carry)
4) Short game: X feels great as does V and I see no difference in any shots under 100 yds. In fact the 50-120 yd range they both performed the same for me. Putting I like firmer feel of X but likely because I've always played it.
Based on the long irons and driver flight I am sticking with the X. If you prefer lower flights across the board, the V will do that for.
Hope this helps

Thanks for the great review on the new ProV1 and the X.
It is so nice to get a full review such as the one you posted. Unfortunately I do not have a trackman to give me data so I have to rely on just what I see and experience. It is so good to hear the trackman gives you good date to support your conclusions :)
