Just when I was getting used to the new Titleist DT Trusoft, I received a small package.   This letter was in it.

I am always excited to recieve Titleist Test Balls.  Seems that they arrive in November every year.

Sort of looks like a Titleist DT90.  Looking forward to your test results.

Don't think so.....for one, it has a urethane cover.  Also, i have always received pro V1 prototypes in the past.

I don't think Kenny was suggesting it's a DT 90 reissue, considering that the DT 90 was a surlyn covered wound  ball.

 

If they were going to reissue a nostalgia ball, it would be a balata covered classic, probably the K2 , and reassembling the winding tooling would be quite the project!

So, it's a future ProV1?  I don't quite understand a urethane covered ball that's not a ProV1.

Could they be the new NXT Tour-S? Now with a urethane cover. That would be nice.

Do the guys at Titleist know you post here on MGS? That might be interesting too.

Thanks Plaid,  I have been part of the Titleist test program for about 5 years.  And based upon the ball markings and dimple pattern, these are definitely a Pro V1 prototype. There are Team Titleist testers within MGS as well as Golfwrx..........as you can see their posts when they get their test balls.  I am pretty sure that I am not the only MGS to get the test balls.

I'm with plaid, they don't look like prov1x balls. The writing is more similar to what is used on the NXT balls.

I have got them before but not since I gave the ball they sent terrible reviews two years ago.

I'm Prolly wrong but I think the proV line was just updated this year. Which means the NXT line was due for a change in 2016. It would make sense that You received the new urethane NXT foz. Let us know how they are.

My guess is that these "Test" balls are not for production in January, but rather they are for the following year.  It would be useless to ask for feedback immediately prior to the new release.....as it does not give Titleist enough time to tweek anything.

 

I going with my balls are Pro V1's for 2017.

Your call. But the majority of what I'm seeing other places are saying they are receiving NXT tours of some kind. Either way test it against the previous ProV and let us know the difference.

Maybe you are correct......I did receive another sleeve from Titleist today......the numbers are orange, as the first sleeve was dark red. Guess I am also testing the Velocity?

Get Sum is much better than Velocity.

I got the same thing, Foz.  I don't like the ball, whatever it is.  I compared it to the MG C4 Tour and it is 10-15yds shorter off the tee and spins significantly less on full and half shots.  It rolled well off the putter, but not any differently than the C4.

I got the ones with a black number 2 days ago. They feel great and look good after chipping practice with them. I only hit a few full shots with them but appear to be longer and have better feedback when hit I think than the duo I currently played. Still golfing in Wisconsin in November so hopefully I can play a full round with them before it snows.

      Press Release from Titleist
      Tour-Proven Design Sets Tone for 2020 Jet Black Collection
        FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (Aug. 13, 2019) – The introduction of the new Titleist Tour Bag – making its debut for the FedExCup Playoffs – signals a distinct and modern upgrade on the fairways of the PGA Tour and professional tours around the world.
          Styled and designed based on feedback from tour players and their caddies, in addition to input from PGA golf professionals, the new Tour Bag offers a glimpse into Titleist’s forthcoming 2020 Jet Black Collection that will feature products ranging from stand bags and cart bags to leather headcovers and umbrellas.
        Representing a perfect blend of performance elements and refined detail, the key features of the Jet Black Collection are inspired by the new Tour Bag and incorporated into the entire line – including velour top cuff materials, premium ball pocket panels and luxurious quilted hip pads – reimagined in the Titleist brand colors of black, red, and white.
        “I’m absolutely pumped for the new tour bag,” said Justin Thomas. “We’ve been asking for a fresh, new look and the designers came through big. I love the blacked-out design with the red zippers – and that white Titleist script just pops. You can tell they’ve taken our feedback and thought about every little detail. It’s really slick.”     Thomas is one of more than 150 players that have used a Titleist Tour Bag this year on the PGA Tour, with more Titleist Tour Bags in play each week than any other brand.
             
       
      NEW TITLEIST TOUR BAG FEATURES
      • Hero product of the Jet Black Collection
      • Tour proven 3-point single shoulder strap
      • Durable materials and quilted highlights
      • Premium metal hardware
      • 5 Way top cuff with integrated handles
      • Magnetic, velour lined valuables pocket
      • New Interior organization in apparel pockets
        AVAILABILITY
      The Titleist Tour Bag ($550) is available in golf shops worldwide beginning Sept. 1, with the complete Jet Black Collection coming in early 2020.

      Is it fair to call them the No. 1 iron, driver, wedge in golf? 
      Some notes below from a press release on just how domimate Titleist is on tour this year. 
       
       
      PGA:  It was a Titleist Brand Ambassador 1-2-3 finish at the regular season-ending Wyndham Championship, where Titleist Brand Ambassador J.T. Poston earned his first career PGA TOUR victory … Poston finished one shot clear of Webb Simpson and two better than Ben An … Viktor Hovland (Pro V1), finished solo 4th, another shot back … Closing with a career-best eight-under par 62 en route to a tournament record-tying 22-under 258 victory total, Poston became the first player since 1974 to win a 72-hole stroke-play event on tour without any bogeys or worse … Simpson fired a final round 65 to secure his runner-up finish for the second straight week, while An, who held or shared the lead after each of the first three rounds, closed with a 67.
      >Eleven of the 12 players who finished among the top 10 and ties trusted Titleist golf balls for their success, and so did every other player who finished in the top 35 … That’s 34 of the top 35 finishers teed up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x with so much on the line at the PGA TOUR’s regular season finale.
      > Poston’s win advances the 2018-19 PGA TOUR victory total for Titleist golf ball players to 23, nearly four times the nearest competitor (6) and more than all other golf balls combined … A total of 120 (77%) players teed up a Titleist at the Wyndham Championship, more than eight times the nearest competitor with 14. 
      > What’s in the Titleist Bags of the top three finishers at the Wyndham Championship:
      J.T. Poston: Pro V1x, TS3 (9.5) driver, TS2 (15) fairway metal, 716 T-MB (3-5) and 718 AP2 (6-9) irons, Vokey Design SM7 pitching (46), gap (50), sand (55) and lob (60) wedges, Scotty Cameron GoLo putter.
       
      Webb Simpson: Pro V1, TS3 (10.5) driver, TS2 (15) and 913Fd (18) fairway metals, 913Hd (20) and 915Hd (23.5) hybrids, New 620 MB (5-PW) irons, Vokey Design SM7 gap (54) and prototype lob (60) wedges.
       
      Ben An: Pro V1x, TS3 (8.5) driver, U-500 2-iron, 716 T-MB (3-5) and 620 MB (6-9) irons, Vokey Design SM7 pitching (48), gap (52), sand (56) and prototype (60) lob wedges, Scotty Cameron TNP putter.
       
      > For the second time this season, the Titleist brand swept all eight major equipment categories on both the PGA TOUR and Korn Ferry Tour in the same week ... It is an achievement that had never been accomplished until Titleist made history by sweeping the Travelers Championship and Wichita Open in June ... The eight major tee-through-green equipment categories include golf balls, drivers, fairway metals, hybrids, utility irons, irons, wedges and putters ... The recently introduced T100 irons were the most played single model at the event with 15 sets in play, while the TS3 driver was the field favorite with 34.
      > At the Wyndham Championship, Titleist was the top choice across every category for the 11th time this year ... The other tournaments in which Titleist has topped every major equipment category include: 3M Open, Rocket Mortgage Classic, Travelers Championship, AT&T Byron Nelson, Wells Fargo Championship, Corales Puntacana Championship, Valspar Championship, Honda Classic, Farmers Insurance Open and Sony Open in Hawaii ... This marks the fourth time on the Korn Ferry Tour that Titleist has swept the counts.

      I'm listing a MINT TS2 with a brand-new Accra TZ5, 75g M5 shaft, standard length. The  original driver was $499 and I added the shaft for $310. 
      I estimate the driver head has launched ~25 tee shots. I had some pro-shop money expire end of 2018, so I picked up the TS2 head. I got fit for the Accra shaft about a month ago and it's been collecting dust on the TS2 since. Decided to stick with my trust 915d2 from college. This thing is sick. Please feel free to shoot me any questions. 
      $525 - Looking to sell full set-up.

      It’s been a while since I posted but it’s time to update what is in my bag for my first season of professional golf.
       

       
      There are definitely some improvements that I’m looking forward to but overall I’m pretty happy with my bag so far. It helps that this setup has me -2 thru 54 holes of tournament golf (and $1,200 in winnings) since the driver, 3wood and wedges went in the bag on June 23rd.
       
      So here is what is in my bag.
       
      Driver: Titleist TS3 - Diamana White Board 70X tipped 1” & 1” short
      3wood: Titleist TS3 - Diamana White Board 80X
      Driving Iron: Titleist 712u - Accra 110i X
      Irons: Titleist 714 AP2 4-PW - KBS C-Taper 130 X
      Wedges: Vokey SM7 - Dynamic Gold X100
      Putter: Evnroll ER2 - P2 Aware Grip
      Ball: Titleist ProV1 Yellow
      Glove: Under Armour Iso-Chill
      Range Finder: Precision Pro NX7 Pro
      Speed Trainer: Golf Stick Pro
       
      Carry Distances per GCQuad
      Dr (8.5*) - 290
      3w (14.25*) - 265
      2 (18*) - 245
      4 (21*) - 225
      5 (25*) - 215
      6 (29*) - 205
      7 (33*) - 195
      8 (37*) - 180
      9 (41*) - 165
      PW (45*) - 150
      50.F.12 - 133

      All this talk of the MGS Hard Rock Challenge and the ball test recently has me thinking about the hardware...
      I know I *should* be gaming one model, and probably one I'm fit for at that. But the cheapskate in me just can't pass up on a free wayward ball, looking for a home. Nor can I bring myself to just toss the 24 pack of two piecers I walked away from Christmas with.
      So my question is this - what do you do with the random balls you might come across one way or another? Do you keep em all? Hit them into the woods? Do you have a threshold of quality that determines if it's a keeper or a leaver?
