Titleist Price Increase to $62/dozen

Recommended Posts

Pro V1:
 

The difference is total performance

More short game spin and control with even softer feel, penetrating trajectory for exceptional distance, and long-lasting durability.

MSRP: $62.00/dozen

 

Holy Cow!  $62/dozen for Pro V1's?  You gotta be kidding me.

 

What are you paying for a dozen golf balls?  What ball are you playing most often?

I saw on some sites prov1s at that price. Titleist think they are ExxonMobil?

 

My favorite ball is the "free-ball", but when I run out of those, I buy those Srixon Zstars last year's go for 30ish/doz. the newer "spin skin" at 44, maybe, but prov1s at 62, no way.

 

 

P.S. hope u guys are ok down there in Tampa/St. Pete my brother lives in Inglewood said those storms were very scary.

I will be purchasing exactly -0- golf balls at $62/dz.  Plenty of other quality options:  Snell MTB, prior year Nike or Srixon tour ball.  Maybe one say when they put RF chips in that help you find it..... but not today.

I see that's MSRP on the Titleist site, but is that was all the stores will be selling them for?

 

They are still $47.99 on most other sites I've checked so just wondering if this is one of those cases where nobody but golf course pro shops actually sell them for MSRP or if I'm looking at least years balls and the new ones will all be $62?

 

Either way if I wouldn't buy them at $48 I'm sure as hell not buying them at $62.

If I got value for the money, I might play it.

 

But I just don't see a difference from my Top Flite Gamer tours which cost substantially less.

For early Spring & late Fall, Lost Golf Balls provides "slightly pre-used" golf balls work just as well, for a LOT less money.

 

Currently, I'm gaming the Master Grip C4 and want to try the Snell balls this season.

 

For the price they're asking for the Titleist balls, they should be able to swim and include GPS locators if they end up in trouble!

Ha. I thought Foz was yanking our chain. Yes.. on the Titleist website they are $62/dz. Who would pay that? Perhaps some guy in a retail shop can tell someone's wife what a great deal they have on PV1's at $47/dz. LOL

I don't buy them ever anyway. And if I did they'd be right at about $51.90 including tax. No thanks.

Looks like the left over pro v's are the last I'll be playing. Snell is my new ball of choice he is suppose to be upgrading as well, bet they will be a much better price than $62.

My home pro shop sells Titleist, Bridgestone and Nike balls.  Up until this last season, Titleist was the most popular brand in the shop. They sold a ton of them. Bridgestone had started to erode some of that lead, in the prior year, but this summer, the RZN's passed them up in sales at our club, but, and this is a big one. The Pro-V outsold the RZN Platinum, while the RZN Black's destroyed the the NXT's in sales for the year (almost 2 to 1 from what I heard).

Even at the old price $47.99 ($4 per ball), I don't know, it just seems steep to me - might be different if I were getting paid to play :-) Maybe my perspective is wrong, but Bridgestone 330 RXS and Snell My Tour Ball (my new favorite) seem plenty good enough to me. It's definitely not that I don't like the Pro V1/V1X balls.

I have played the Pro V1x since it came out and doubt I will change now. $62 is a bit steep if that is where they are going, but on the bright side maybe I will hit the driver straight when the balls are north of $5 a pop.

I like PV1's, but haven't bought any for many years.  I used to get a dozen for Christmas or my birthday, but since I switched to the Z-stars a few years ago and the MG Tour C4 and Snell MTB balls recently, I haven't gotten any for awhile.  I really haven't missed playing them, and at $62 or $47 a dozen, I REALLY don't miss them.

I just can't understand why anyone would pay $48-$62 per dozen for a golf ball when you can get very similar ball characteristics from the Snell MTB($32) or MG Golf C4($20)........way much less.
