Stray Away from Pro V1?

Recommended Posts

I hit both of my hole in ones with a Titleist Pro V1 model, different years. My wife just told me I'm an idiot for even wanted to try anything different.. my plan was to migrate to the Wilson Staff FG Tour.

 

What do you think?

Play what you enjoy, what you feel makes your game better, and just leaves you happy.

 

There are so many great tour balls out there that one isn't going to give you a significant advantage over the other. It all comes down to personal preference

I found one of the Wilson Staff FG Tour balls and was totally impressed. I would definitely game this ball again and I need to put a reminder in my phone to pick some up!

I agree with jlukes. Play what you enjoy and what you feel suits your game the best.

I've played the FG Tour many times and like the ball. I still have some in inventory. Let us know what you think.

Like yourself, I was using the Pro V1/X for the first half of 2016 after getting a dozen of each second-hand online. I bought a sleeve of the FG Tours on a whim from a local course, and I was immediately impressed with the feel, responsiveness, control and spin you can get from them. I immediately bought a dozen of them once my stockpile of Pro V1s had almost ended, and I've got a few of them left still.

 

I've since tried the TP5 and '17 Pro V1/X, and whilst I adore the new Pro V1X, I would still go for the FG Tours purely due to the price point - which is AU$20 over here. There is very little difference between them otherwise apart from a slightly higher ball flight from the X.

When it thaws out again I will for sure put up results on the official review page. So far so good in the back yard testing and putting in the living room.

... While I am reluctant to say any ball is better than the ProV1 for others, I can certainly say there are many you will find is the equal. My favorite is the Z Star because it suits my 100 mph swing perfectly and the 2017 is a great wind ball. But for bargain hunters, I just don't think anyone can come close to the Taylor Made Lethal packs. Next to the Z Star the Lethal is my favorite ball and for me at least, they both out perform the ProV1's. And $100 for a 50 pack is the best deal going in balls:

(Edit: even though I have two double eagles I still don't have a hole in one. So maybe I ought to play a ProV1 every now and then.  :wacko:

I agree I will not spend $50 plus on a box of balls when i could buy a new wedge for the price of two 12 packs of balls. Just doesn't make sense.

Play what you want, as long as it gives you confidence behind the ball.

I will relate it to winning the lottery. If you won the lottery twice with the same numbers, do you continue to play those same numbers or do you change them? Or anything that has treated you well, do you change just because? I really want to like these Wilson's and I do, they are roughly the same price as Pro V's, so that part doesn't matter. Do you buy a pair of reeboks after you've worn nikes all your life just because?

 

Wilsons are harder to find "pre swung" as my theory is after you hit them once it's a used ball.

The pro v1 didn't make it go in the hole...

Hey, look into this ball, it is a company called OnCore. I'm gonna get some and check them out. The technology behind them sounds pretty amazing, and price is competitive with Snell.

Play with what your happy with as others have said; besides, as you mentioned, different year prov1 have different formulations so it's not technically the same ball.

I play ProV1's because the rich yet terrible golfers at my CC lose a ton of them... I also like the z-star, the Taylormade Project (a) and the MG C4. Hard to tell a difference really.

 

The MG is hard to beat at $20/dozen.

Putting with the Pro V and the WILSON!!! in the living room. I can say Wilson has the leg up in the feel department. Going to try to sneak out in the rain/snow tomorrow to a real putting green.

I've had two hole in ones. The first was with a TP5.... the second with a ProV1. If I could get the TP5, I would still be gaming it. I refuse to pay the coin for the newest iteration of the TP5.... or any of the tour balls. I buy from Lost Golf Balls at less than half the price. I'm going to try either the Lethal or the Tour Prefered this year. Both are still the TP5 I think??? TM keeps changing names and I can't figure out what is what with them anymore.
