Oncore vs vice golf balls

Would you guys consider doing a showdown much like you did with the Kirkland ball when it first came out?

That's Tony and Adams area. It would be interesting to see. I plan on doing some more on course testing with them against a couple of the main tour balls.

Pulled the trigger and bought some Vice Tour. $15/dozen, can not argue that price for brand new balls. I'll let you know how I like them!

I am a fan of the Oncore Elixr but here in NZ they are the same price as the Taylormade TP5 that I am using. Also I like to support our club pro by buying from him.

I have heard nothing but great things in regards to the Oncore, the only thing that would distract me is the logo. I love their alignment, but that logo is so large

It's not bad once you get used to it.

 

And as a bonus last night we played with some very deep/thick rough from a week's worth of rain. It made identifying the ball when it was settled down in it, a bit easier. [emoji41]

 

All that aside earlier this week, I played it along side the new Chrome Soft and it out performed it off the tee, from 100 yards and with longer irons.

 

Still can't believe how good this ball is.

I played the new chrome soft a couple weeks ago at a course I have familiarity with to help me gsuge it's performance off the tee and with iron shots. Greens were recently punched so it wasn't something I looked at.

 

I was shorter off the tee with chrome soft compared to oncore and Prov1. I was about 1/2 club shorter on irons. It was a good ball but I would play the elixir over it every day

Just played the Vice Tour today and I'm in love. Felt better than NXT Tour, e6, or Chromesoft in my opinion. This will def be my new gamer going forward.

Thats awesome. I'll admit I was skeptical of these direct to consumer balls until this year. Oncore ELIXR has changed that view 180 degrees. I've converted at least two other players at our club.

 

As for the Vice I've heard nothing but great things about it as well.

Greetings, All.

This is my 1rst post to My Golf Spy.

I am a 17 hdcp.

In my humble opinion, the OnCore Elixir outperforms the Titleist Pro V1, the Titleist AVX, the Vice Pro, the Snell (I forget which 1- played 3 rounds w/ balls gifted me by a friend), & the Kirkland ball.

No, I do not work for OnCore.

Skeptical, at 1rst.

Only tried the OnCore because I saw a post on line.

My 1rst impression: “Holy crap! Is this ball legal?!!!!?”

Hot off the club face (Callaway XR driver).

Smoked off the irons (Mizuno MP 18s- Yeah, I know. Someone carrying my hdcp doesn't deserve to be playing these clubs- but I cannot hit game imprvmt clubs-> waaaayyy too big- It's a mental thing).

Exquisite off my wedges (Titleist Vokey & 60°, 56°, 52°), w/ bite (That's odd. That never happens!).

Buttery soft of the putter face (Scotty Cameron “old school” Newport, gun metal finish).

Overall, love it.

However, like any golfer, open to anything better- especially if it is less costly!

Until then, even though I have the other balls still in my bag (along with my Bridgestone e-7 balls- very consistent in the wind, remind me of the old Wilson ball), it now is my “Go To” ball when it really counts (Tournaments, etc.).

My apologies.

Please forgive me for such a long post

The Vice Tour is a great ball.

Don't get me wrong.

Just like the the OnCore Elixir a hair better.

IMHO, you can't go wrong w/ either ball.

The Vice Tour ball sounds awesome off the club face.

However, I have found that, while both seek the middle of the fairway, the OnCore ball was slightly longer (by about 3- 5 yds/ 2.7- 4.6 meters)- basically, a draw, as far as distance is concerned.

Feel- a hair better for the OnCore ball.

Bottom line,...

For the price, I like them both.

Also, played the Titleist AVX balls while in Scotland, 2 months ago.

NICE ball, for the price!

I haven't tried Vice yet, but I have been playing the OnCore Caliber lately and it is also a great ball. Definitely getting more distance than usual and my putting has been amazing, considering how much I struggle with it normally.

I've been playing Pearl Golf balls last few weeks, even smaller company then Vice, and I love them!

Yesterday I even shot my first eagle ever! I'm not saying I wouldn't have shot it with other brand balls, but it does increase my enthusiasm..:)

I did a review, but would love to see an official one !

I do not believe the Vice, Snell, Pearl, Oncore and Cut differ a lot in quality and performance, I think it's all about what brand suits you best.
To me it was the price aspect and the looks that pulled me to Pearl instead of Vice or Cut..

Someone posted a link to a Today's Golfer review of Pearl balls, and I'm intrigued.  I love what all of these brands are doing to the ball market.

Playing the Vice Pro plus. It’s pretty nice, but not the best spin. But I’m playing like crap right now, so my opinion isn’t that good.
