Give Vice a 3rd Chance?


Recommended Posts

i've tried the yellow vice balls and it was like playing with a bouncy ball. didn't like the feel of the cover and was harsh feel with my putter and wedges and irons. i might give them another try but too afraid i'll regret purchasing em.

I've played the Vice Pro and Pro+ and have fallen in love with how good they feel.  I also haven't seen any abnormal ball wear compared against Titleist ProV1s or the Bridgestone TOUR B330s I've rotated in.

I didn't notice much difference than pro v1/x both vice and the pro v1s lose their luster vs Taylormade tps or Srixon zvs, but they performed just as good.

I wanted to come back and give an update. Vice is sending me some replacement balls in hopes it was a small batch defect. I tried the Vice Pro Soft... They are amazing! I was hesitant to use them at first because their ball recommender told me to go with the Pro Plus. After other reviews I read on the Pro Soft I wanted to try them. The ball was amazing off the tee box, and incredible with any iron or wedge. The ball was the most consistent ball with distances I have played in a while, and the only time it trickled off the green was when the pin was on the back edge of the green and the ball did what I wanted, I just hit a low one-check runner a little too far and it made it to the fringe. The ball was completely blemish free the entire round, not even a scratch. I'm definitely a Pro Soft fan now and I hope they make the Pro and Pro Plus with the same cover. Cheers, and happy pin seeking!

I will preface this by saying that these are my first pick. For the price, these are the best value ball on the market.

 

I was very disappointed in the cover durability in the Pro Plus. The distance was great and I really like the feel and spin off all clubs.

 

At the end of the day it hasn't been enough to make me switch and I will continue to game these.

As a Vic3 Pro Soft tester, I experienced very little club damage, if any, to the ball. R3member, the Vice Pro Soft has a different cover and D3an Snell said recently that color pigments cause the balls to react differently.

 

If you are not a 95 - 100+ mph swinger, then the Pro Soft will be your ball.

I never thought the pigments could directly affect the performance. I wonder if it has something to do with the cover compound during compression.

 

I have always wonder why there never was a large selection of color choices. I just thought there was no market for them therefore the manufacturers never made them.

I'll bet it's something along the lines of mixing paint. The base is white and that's the standard coating. Then when you add color, the dye thickens up the paint which leaves a thicker coat that almost acts like one extra layer of the ball.

 

I could be way off but that's the impression I get. The dimples never seem to be as deep on colored balls.

Dean Snell said that the pigment for color changes the compound and makes it difficult to ensure the same quality as the white.

Had my first chance to play the Vice Pro yesterday. Thought the durability was good, even though I had heard some disparaging remarks. LOVED this ball around the greens and from 100yds ish in. Tons of spin! Didn't think I loved it off the tee (Driver) until I smoked a couple over 260 over the last few holes. Need more rounds with these, but initially, I'm a big fan!

Ah sounds like it's adding an extra variable to the equation.
