Stray Away from Pro V1?

Because Titliest pays the most people to play their ball?

Fair enough.

 

But they are the "standard" that other brands use to gauge against. And I'm not going to sugar coat it... I have a hard time using anything but the Pro V1/V1x models. They are the most consistent ball.

 

This Bridgestone B330S is very good. I could probably kick the Titleist out of the bag permanently. It will be carrying my team this weekend most likely.

 

I tried the Tour Preffered/X, Cally Chrome Soft/X...

 

I can't get those balls to do what the V1 does for me.

 

I was really looking to replace the $50 a box balls with something cheaper but I don't know if I can do it.

I tried to switch from the PROV. Actually like the TP5 series quite a bit but after testing the Bridgestone E6 series that included the new PROV1s am back in the titleist camp.

I think they put cocaine in them or some other addictive substance.

I'll have to try the Wilson fg tours. Personally I love titliest. I play the trusoft almost exclusively. I did stay away and try the bridgestone e6 soft but just want the same for me

"Obviously my iron play is incredible, and when I get going I can get hot, but this course just fits my eye. The shaping of the holes, and just a couple of the doglegs, I'm able to shape shots."

If you're gonna try the FG Tour than I'd recommend also trying the Duo-Urethane if you haven't already.

 

I liked the FG Tour but love the Duo-U because it's straighter off the tee yet similar characteristics otherwise, other than feel; Duo-U feels considerably softer.

Played my entire round today with a V1x... gosh dang it! Going back to it. I've came to the conclusion that there is no replacement.... for me at least.

Nice thing about playing the Snells is that they really haven't caught on around my area.  So I don't have to worry about marking my ball or wondering about whether the Snell I found in the rough is the one I hit.  Plus they are really good...

TP5x is a game changer, durability for one round only tho.

That's the only disadvantage.

It will be the only ball I use of a long time.

High with less spin... perfect

Funny. I played a TP5x for one round so far and it still looks brand new. And that is after hitting a tree and a few bunker shots.

If you says that Titleist is the number 1 OEM when it comes to paying touring pros to use their balls

I know they get paid, but that's around 3/4 of the field.

 

Since I first started playing it has been "Titleist", everyone played Titleist at the course I grew up at, and it was by no means a rich mans course. It was always a good day to find one out on the course.

 

I'm not saying other brands are bad by any means. But when you send out your brand with a sleeve of Titleist.. you are already saying that Pro V1's are the standard by saying try these against ours.

 

I really like Bridgestone's, but after yesterday's round with a ProV1x I'm back at them.

Not only does Titleist pay a ton of guys to use their balls, but they also give their balls away to other players http://www.titleist.com/company/sponsorship-donations

 

And yes, Titleist has been the #1 ball (sales and tour usage) in golf for a long time, so of course other brands are going to use Titleist as the baseline when trying to convince consumers to buy their ball instead

And I'm not dismissing the prov1. It's a fantastic ball. But to say that performance is the main reason it's the #1 ball in golf is simply not true.

 

Kudos to the Titleist marketing group for getting them to that reputation, but as we've are seeing, times already changing and Titleist is losing ball marketshare to callaway, TMaG and Bridgestone.

 

Titleist is still #1, but the gap is closing because consumers are much more informed now and tour usage isn't as big a selling point as it used to be. TaylorMade is experiencing the same issues with their metal woods
