    Assuming Titleist is continuing the 2 year refresh cycle on the Pro V1 and Pro V1x, any insights as to what changes we may be seeing, what issues may be addressed, suggestions implemented, etc.? I believe strongly, as Titleist suggests, to play the same ball regularly. With this in mind, I've weeded out my massive V1 collection (or horde) to keep only the last 2 generations in my stockpile. I've been tossing my leftover prior generation balls to random kids on the course (please try this, I've honesty seen pure joy in some of those kids eyes when they realuze what they've got. I usually say something like "Nice shot. You play well enough to play this. Give it a try'). My question is, I suppose, as there are some pretty big differences between the 17/18's and the 15/16's now, and I'm trying to get, and stay current, can I expect a world of difference with the 2019 version? Thanks!

    Those of us who are fortunate to be selected to receive a white sleeve of Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x prototype golf balls to participate in the Titleist R&D testing process should be checking their mailbox in September/October. The number 1 golf ball in golf!

    My guess is the next release will be more of a evolution, compared to the last that approached a revolution. I could actually see me stocking up on 2017 Pro-V1's like I haven't done since NXT became NXT-Tour. If it got much better, winners of 14-18 majors might stoke the fire to cut back the ball.

    I found that the V and the X swapped in the last evolution. I find the X spinning tremendously more than the V, which i was highly disappointed with. I’m hoping they go back to the X being a lower spinning ball for accuracy.

    It took a little getting used to, for me, definitely. Still wavering between them both.

    I liked the 2015 Pro V1 X the better than the 2017 version which seemed to feel firmer and carry shorter with my irons by 5 yards. So I'm hoping 2019 gets back to the original characteristics of both balls.

    I loved the 2015 V1's it took me a year to start playing the 17's but now that's all I play. I hope the changes are as Don said evolution as I am not sure i can take another change like the 15-17's were. We will be finding out soon as the test balls start rolling out soon.

    2017 version are my favorite the continued consistency that you expect from the #1 ball in golf but the return to the lower spin.

    Having met the R&D guys I am excited to see what they are working on for the next version of the Pro V1

    I can't agree enough, Rob. With some companies, it's just hype. At Titleist, the hype is real. I think that's what you get when you listen to your product's users, first, not the marketing folks. It's essentially like the users designed it, I guess that's why, since it's introduction, the professionals have chosen the V1 family by an unmistakably huge margin.

    Any Pro V1 works for me!

    I have never been disapponted in the performance of the Pro V1 and Pro V1X's so I'm sure R & D will be up to the challenge of producing another winner next year. However, I'm looking forward to the release of the optic Yellow colored Pro V1 and Pro V1X's in 2019.

    What are the parameters around getting to test prototype golf balls? Is it random selection or is there a newsletter to reply to?

    Random, and a complete profile helps. Well, random to us. Titleist likely uses current listed ball, location, and handicap (from a profile) to get a good cross reference of user experiences for feedback. From time to time, a box can show up in your mailbox asking for feedback.

    Brent,
    It is a random selection. Stay active on Team Titleist, get your profile up to 100% and then you just never know what will show up at your door/mailbox.
