But it looks like a soccer ball. Surely the robot can process that?

Does the robot have a foot wedge?

I don't know if many of you follow Tony (@GolfSpyT) on twitter but he's been blowing it up with the golf ball test. Needless to say, this test is going to really help in golf ball selection and prove

The same for every ball hit I imagine.

The ball don’t care how stiff the tip is does it? 🤭

Don't worry, if I had Twitter I'd block you for your sane  and calm responses. Twitter is no place for that kind of collaboration.

@Kor.A.Door - I agree 100% that if someone is playing a ball that didn't perform well in the test, but they're comfortable with it, then they shouldn't switch it up just because of the MGS Ball Test. And I also agree that had any of the other major manufacturers been in Callaway's spot, they would've responded similarly. And to be honest, I'm guilty of not giving golf balls enough time before moving on, but no more! The Pro V1x are my ride or die from here on out!

Having more time to digest the results of the test and see some of the reactions around the interwebz, I have a greater appreciation for what MGS achieved here. MGS should be proud of the test as it covered a lot of ground, and despite some of the criticism, I haven't read a thing suggesting they're saying the test is the 'end all, be all' or anything of the sort. Ultimately, I think what the test represents is an EXCELLENT starting point for anyone looking for a reason to try a different ball. Is it an advertisement for Snell? Nope. Any company would've gotten an influx in traffic and possibly orders if they occupied the top spot. Alternatively, it's also not indictment on golf balls that didn't perform that well. I believe this because a lot of amateurs are going to play what they're comfortable with anyway especially if they believe a certain ball 'does everything they need it to'. 

I think the most important thing achieved by this test is it encourages you to take a deeper look when selecting a golf ball. Because as most of you know, we're blitzed by advertising suggesting something that may not be true (soft is FAST! 😜). For those of us who want to perform our best on the course, being able to dig a little deeper and perhaps try a ball you normally wouldn't can make a difference! 

I guess you liked the V1x on the maiden voyage?

Yeah a little. It's not a problem for me except on bunker shots, but I've noticed some shaving on greenside bunker shots. 

Edit: still totally playable though.

Yes still playable but a noticeable difference from previous versions. And yes they are still playable, I have only had one that I had to take out of play during round and it was from a fairway bunker.

hmmm, well that's not good, seems from the responses that it may be a problem. Most expensive ball and they scuffing problems.

It is not a problem yet, as the balls are still playable. Just something I noticed in the 2 model years.

From what I gathered MGS rated the Vice Pro as being only "Good" because of the inconsistencies in compression ratings from ball to ball. It's also possible they may have had a couple wild card balls that were low quality and flew considerably offline, but the dispersion data makes that seem unlikely. I could also see how the Vice Pro might be less durable than other balls, but not considerably so in my own experience. I just switched back to the Vice Pro after giving the Snell MTB-Black a go last season. Both are great balls, but there is a feel difference to me which is why I went back. It also didn't hurt that I got a great deal on 5 doz. for $25/ea + 1 free dozen last month on a special they were having.

Ive gone through the std devs and I really can't see anything bad, maybe it cuts up a bit more than the others as you mentioned

That's hilarious.  Of course I know 2014 was on the heels of the OGD!  So one couldn't blame you for your enthusiasm.
