I have played the Vice Pro+. Its a good ball. Might have a hair less wedge spin than the ProV1 but its near identical

Oncore elixir. It's a top level ball and if I switch balls that would be the direction I go

I'm playing Vice Pro Plus right now. I was loyal to the ProV1x but $4 a ball isn't happening.

 

The consumer direct model works because this product can hold its own. All the boxes check off for me...

Affordable

Durable

Great feel

Consistent ball flight

 

As mentioned above, I agree with the spin around the greens. It's good, not the best.

 

They're worth a try, I am very pleased.

I've been going back and forth on idea of getting some Vice balls but I still lose enough that I find it hard to pay full price. I typically get some Mint condition used balls offline

If you are looking for other balls, I would also recommend getting a Snell MTB trial pack of Black and Red. Reviews on them are just rolling in and I have been very happy with the Reds.

I'm not opposed to any other brands besides the two I mentioned. I'm just looking for a ball that performs well in all aspects. I just don't want to pay $50 for a dozen balls. I refuse!

I've been enjoying playing Vice balls. My home course has a ton of water and it's just not worth losing $3-4 balls. I also love the Vice style/design. I use their gloves, towel, and umbrella as well. Always great customer service and shipping. Great customization options too if you are into that sort of thing.

I am a huge fan of the OnCore Elixr. Incredibly soft feel, very good spin, and holds its line really well in the wind. It checks all the boxes for me.

I just got a box of vice pro+ and played my first round with them on Saturday. So far I am hitting them pretty well and they seem as advertised.  As mentioned above they seem close if not equal to prov1 balls, and hopefully my opinion doesn't change after playing with them more with them.  After reading what you guys have said I think my next batch will be OnCore and/or snell and see how those feel. 

 

It seems that most guys are over paying $50 a dozen for golf balls, so I am glad there are some quality options out there for us.

Indeed Max is on to something there for you with the Snell MTB line. They are direct-to-consumer just like Vice & Encore, and they have many great, high-end qualities to them. At a mere $31.99 and free ship, it's a no-brainer to try the Snell MTB test pack...

I am currently writing up my final official eval on the Reds, and will be playing the Blacks this weekend for the first time for an unofficial review. When I received the Blacks, they also came with a very nice "thank-you" note from Snell with a live ink signature from the owner himself-very class and these have been amazing to play with.

I played all 18 yesterday with the OnCore Elixr. It flat-out performed! Great distance, great spin and feel around the greens, and very good in the wind. I hit one bad tee shot where I thought I had sliced it. It never sliced and ended-up just off the fairway. Maybe there really is something to the interior weighting they talk about. It's a very straight ball!

It does seem hard to hit a bad shot with it. Last week i hit shots on 3 straight holes that i thought were going to be lost deep. I found and was able to play all three.

 

Love the feel and performance around the green as well.
