Stray Away from Pro V1?

They're all so similar! Find one you like the way it feels and get excited to pick up and out of the hole! ;)

 

Thought I'd be a TP5X player but prefer the feel of the TP5! Performance differences were minimal. Do what you want! Haha!

I will say, I've played at least a half dozen balls in the past year that could be my gamer. Many don't make the bag simply because I can't stand the logo. You'll have no problem switching to the Wilson.

My wife is a social Golfer. Plays maybe 9 then complains about golfing taking too long. Give her a few beers and she'll just sit in the cart on her phone, lol. She doesn't care what ball she plays as long as it's colorful so I don't invest a lot on Pro V's on her, just colored top flight or low end volvik balls.

Last week I played the front with my regular NXT Tour ball. On a whim I played the back with a pink Volvik.

I think it was Tom Wishon who said that you should pick a ball based on how it performs on shots into the green.  Short irons and partial swings as there is no noticeable difference between the urethane balls off the tee.  I subscribe to this theory.  

 

I certainly like ProV1s but Snell MTB, TaylorMade Tour Preferred (and all the Penta, Lethal variants) and Project (a) work well for me.  I go used, unless Snell.

Well the golf ball is the only thing you hit every shot during your round so it's smart to play a good golf ball. That being said, a higher price does not mean it's a better ball. I stopped playing the pro v1x and switched to Callaway chrome soft. Like you I had two hole in one with the pro v1x but I can't count the amount of times I have gotten up and down for par saves with these Callaway balls they just stop on any surfuce.

 

Long story short play the ball you feel is right. If you are looking for a cheaper ball try Vice or Snell. A few guys in my regular group play these and swear by them.

I have to agree that short irons in is the big difference. The roll out of many balls today makes it hard to really zero in on which one is better off the tee, so feel is the confidence builder agian there too. For some of us that can remember the Balatas the search for that long butter ball was an exercise in futility. <_>

Chrome soft and chrome soft X for me, both work well for me, the X sounds a bit firmer off the face, both perform equally well for me.

I've moved to the B330S. Nice and soft around the greens, iron play is [emoji1362], and the driver loves to compress it well! Not going anywhere for a while.

 

This may sound weird: but the Pro V1 sounds chalky to me. The V1x sounds like plastic and the B330S sounds like music what I think a golf ball should. Firm but just the right amount of jiggle... [emoji848] and knows how to spin it's way around the dance floor.

I'm playing the W/S Duo-Urethane for about 25 or so rounds now. Tried it on a whim, love it.

 

Straightest urethane ball off driver for me, by far. Good distance (longer for me than the Chrome Soft, a bit shorter than the B330), decent spin for my game. Not backing up too often but hop & stop. Love the soft feel.

 

Like the FG Tour also but the straight flight of the Duo-U wins.

I might pick up a sleeve before my next round to give them a go. All signs point to "yes" from what I've read so far, and from the ball fitting tool on their webpage.

Yeah. I have been a die hard ProV1/V1x guy for the past well forever... the B330S is a very, very good ball. It fits right in the middle of the V1/V1x. I get a nice flat ball flight and not too much spin with the driver. Fits "my" swing perfectly. Seems to stop better with wedges too.

I'm no pro. But pros are good. And this graphic is astounding.

 

Why would anyone play anything other than what pretty much the entire field was playing?

I used to think the same thing, but having a ball that reduces sidespin can help those with a hook or slice keep the ball somewhat in play instead of going OB and taking a penalty right off the bat. Hard to go low if you can't even get to the green. I'm torn a bit right now about it. While I was testing the E6 soft/distance, I noticed less sidespin on driver shots and those less than well strucked shots still stayed somewhat inbound. Switched to my gamer (B330-RX's) and lost a ball a few holes later due to a hooked drive. I'll have to test further to see if there is some merit to this.
