    I have now played 54 holes with my first AVX and apart from it performing great, it is still totally usable and barely a mark on it. Suddenly £3 per ball is pretty good value as long as you don’t loose it of course.

    I had different experiences, balls seemed pretty dinged up/ scuffed after a few holes, mainly iron tee shots and long wedge shots hurt it more than a pro v1. Now have a set in my bag for windy days, other than than back to pro v1 for me. Any more experiences?

    The Pro V1 is such a great ball that I have resisted trying the AVX, but, remain tempted. I may try a sleeve before the new Pro V1 is released.
  4. I've also had a different experience where the ball seems to get duller quicker. But I've still switched to the AVX over the PRO V1. (FOR ME) The visual is not as important as proformance and the AVX has a better distance and flight trajectory and still lands soft with my mid and long irons. I'll still try the new PRO V1 when it comes out but I like this ball.
  5. AVX vs Pro V1. Anyone make a switch?
  6. Reviews are always so different from person to person. It can be so frustrating when buying items.

    I've heard mainly good things about this golf ball, but not enough to stop people using their beloved prov1.

    I’ve made the switch for now. Was playing the ProV1x. Love the extra distance and optic yellow. Will probably get some new ProV’s next year when they come out with the yellow ball. For now it’s AVX.

    my playing partner also switched to the AVX.
  8. I have not bought any AVX, but did find a pretty new looking 1 and played for almost 27 holes, and I found the cover held up really well.

    With the new Pro V1/X now being offered in yellow I'm curious if they are going to be using the same cover material as the AVX in the gen Pro V1/X?
  9. It has been extremely durable for me! Excited to continue testing the AVX,
  10. I find the AVX ball much more durable than the X. I have been amazed that after the occasional tree/cart path/what-have-you that there has not been any noticeable damage. I prefer the X as my "go-to" ball but play the X in high wind conditions. For whatever reason I find it more predictable as the wind gets vicious. Jason

    It's been very durable for me. Maybe a little more so than my usual Pro V1x. I've been playing the AVX for a few rounds, shot a personal best with them last Sunday. I can't complain. What I'm still trying to get used to is the rollout and the length. About half a club longer with the irons and instead of hitting and stopping or backing up, it can kick forward from a foot or two to as much as 10 depending on the iron, or if you're coming out of the rough.

    I agree with this for the most part. It's a great ball, and I really liked it. I think the only draw back that "I found" was sometimes it was hard to predict coming out of the rough. It'd seemed more of a guessing game on how much spin there'd be on it vs the Pro V1/X when comin out of the rough. But off a tee or fairway just as consistent as the Pro V1/X (meaning I knew what to expect more often).

    I'm sure with much more testing that unpredictability would be much more manageable.

    90% there on the switch to AVX, just getting use to the approach shots and chipping around the greens.

    made the switch from ProV1x to AVX and i really like it. love the extra distance, but still need to get use to it in the short game / putting.

    After a few months playing the AVX I found that it goes around 5 yards further on all clubs and flies a little lower so I’m very happy with the results as I play links golf in Scotland so the lower the better. Anyone had any different results ?

    I have been playing the avx since may of 2017. I find that it's definitely goes farther by around 5yds. Every once it a while, it seems to go like I hit a flyer? Yes, out of the fairway clean lie dry ball. Does anyone find the same thing? Love the ball, will try the new prov1.

    Over the last couple of winter months with the heavy rain and wind we have had in Scotland.

    I’ve played 5 rounds with a yellow AVX, it’s still in great condition one slight mark from a bunker shot with the sm7.

    Overall thoughts of the ball are great,
    It’s roughly for me 5/7 yards further up the fairway or rough sometimes with my woods and irons.

    It doesn’t stop anywhere near a Pro v, but with the greens that wet and soft I can live with it for now.

    I’m not convinced on the lower ball flight rubbish, I hit the ball very high, most time I think it comes down with snow on it haha

    Putting wise it does come off the putter a little hotter than the pro v, you need to adjust your stroke to compensate this maybe a foot or two max I find.

    Would be kinda neat if Titleist came up with a 6 ball pack that contained 2 of the ProV, 2 ProV1x and 2 AVX with no identity markings other than a number. Inside the package they could have a cheat sheet that tells what the #1's are and so forth. You go out and try them and when you get done open the cheat sheet and see which one had worked best for you. Sorta like the test ball packs they send out. Price 'em fairly and I bet they'd get a good response.
  19. Great idea Tony! After being out of the game for a while, I am not sure what to hit. That would certainly get me started on the right path.
