This test will be a significantly different and there will NOT be much follow up or final review since...well...the testers won't know what product they are reviewing. However, all comments and questions are welcome for the testers to answer as best they can!

This test will be conducted by Titleist and their partners, however we are helping them find the right amount of testers - yes, you read that right, all 24 of them!!
 
You will receive and be evaluating two different balls from Titleist (1-doz of each variety) and providing feedback directly to them about the performance of each ball. While this is not a development ball, you will be shipped a ball from their portfolio to evaluate its performance to your game...which could feed into future balls 😉

Would love to try them. I recently went to the pro v1x and have loved it. Best ball I have played for my game.

I love Titleist ProV line and play them all the time.  I would love the opportunity to play their new ball and critique it!  I am a 6 handicap playing at least once a week in AZ and hit the range in between.

I have done this about 3 times in the past via the Team Titleist program - always fun to experience and observe the different play characteristics. It always makes my friends jealous!

Always looking for a better ball.  As a senior golfer, the tour balls just don't work for me.  Looking for something that provides good distance and spin on approach shots, and good feedback on putts and mishits.  Love to try it.

How much do you think what ball you currently play will go into the tester selection process?

It will be interesting to see if the "major" differences between balls can be identified by mid handicappers.  All of the ball companies wax on and on about the EXTREME differences between balls, but can if an amateur can't tell, does it matter?

Now that I am retired I am playing more and would love to test, compare and report

I used to think a regular (non-Pro) golfer couldn't really tell a difference between a premo ball and a cheapo. After playing the Pro V1 for the last two years, I recently bought a dozen $20 Srixons to play a new course that gobbled up balls. The difference was DEFINITELY notable. I don't even play the higher-end Bridgestone or TP5 because the performances don't match the Pro V1.

Today is my Birthday and I'd love to get these as a Present to test.

I regularly cycle through the RX, X, and XS models of the Bridgestone Tour balls. Would love the opportunity to do something similar with Titleist in addition to the odd time I hit a Pro V1 or V1X I find on course.

They did and made it available to the public. I think it was called the EXP-01 (Probably today's tour speed).

I'm pretty sure EXP-01 turned out as Left Dash.  I could be mistaken, but pretty sure on that.

This would be such a cool opportunity. We all have our balls we like to play with, even within a brand, and mine are PV1. It would be really cool to see if my thoughts actually work out to match when I don't know what I am playing. Pick me, please!

A fantastic and exciting opportunity be able to provide input on the future of the Titleist products!

Just bought some avx balls. 17 hdcp 

I’ll will tell you if these balls are any different from any of the other balls

Would love to see if these balls make any difference. Play 3x week

An excellent concept by Titleist. Testing, as part of the process, by actual users makes a lot of sense and is a smart idea.

I play twice a week and am a 12.9 handicap.

Would love to test these as I am currently playing with the Prov1 X

I've already done this several times through Team Titleist, as well as provided feedback on the new versions of the ProV line over the last several years..  Typically the balls that are sent out for testing are not always easy to ID, (see attached pic of the latest ProV1, sent to me in "generic" sleeve in Feb. for comment/feedback) other than that it's not hard to tell the difference between a Urethane cover and something else.  Doing a side-by-side with your current gamer makes for an interesting test.

Great opportunity. I went through the virtual ball fitting and was between V1x and Left Dash. I feel like a blind test could fine tune that selection process even more. It would take out any unknown biases the user has. Great idea!

I personally do this kinds of test almost every month, last month I liked Taylormade distance +, this month love prov1x!

Looking forward to the opportunity to test these new balls and see how they fare in the Hawaii Tradewinds 🤙🏾
