Titleist ball testing again?

Recommended Posts

Anyone get the email asking to participate in another round of ball testing for Titleist today?  Just did this last fall and they are usually a two year cycle.  Anyone know about a change in that format this go-round?

 

I actually think this version of the ProV1 and ProV1x are a significant improvement over the prior generation.  I'd be surprised to see them changing them already, but stranger things have happened I suppose...

Got the email and signed up. Since you have done this before, how does it work? Do you write a review kind of like on MGS?

I signed up as well when I saw the email, but I found it strange too. When was the release of the latest ProVs 6-8 months ago? The R&D process to improve the ProVs has to be at least 18 months right?

Me too, I wonder if they are up to something.  I have heard of some comments from people who have switched away from the V1 and V1X.  Or maybe they are thinking of a mid-range urethane ball that could compete with Srixon, Snell and Vice?

It doesn't have to be for the ProV1 - it could be an NXT Tour Prototype since they alternate release cycles

Most likely the NXT series, as they alternate release years from the ProV.   

 

As for how it works, they send you a sleeve of unmarked balls, so you aren't 100% what model it is, and ask you for feedback on all sorts of characteristics.

You get a box of balls with "Test" on the stripe that usually indicates the model and you are supposed to play them for a couple weeks.  About two weeks later you get a survey link to complete and that's it.  Pretty simple really, but fun to be a part of the R&D process in a small way.

Good thing it's a box because I don't know if I could keep just a sleeve in play for a few weeks!

Guess I should have been more specific - by box I meant a sleeve.  They come in an unmarked white box.

At the TeamTitleist Invitational last year they gave each of us two sleeves, I suppose one for each round.  Ever seen 70 grown men get excited about a plain white box at the same time...ha pretty cool.
