I'm not a single ball type of guy so I tend to move around quite a bit. I go from TP5, to PV1, BXS, Tour Soft, Tour Response. I recently tried an 2020 AVX and really liked the performance especially my short game. I'm not one who skilled enough to suck a ball back a few feet, but the AVX does a very good job of one hop and stop with very little run-off. Plus it's soft enough which is my preferred feel.

I tried the previous version of the AVX and for a higher spin player it worked very well for the driver and irons. I found around the greens it truly lacked the control needed to hit the shots that I wanted. Switch to this year and I did try the new AVX and it was significantly improved over the original version around the greens. If they were slightly better priced I could play them.

After reading the posts and threads a month ago, I decided to try the AVX ball again. Predominately use ProV1x & ProV1's (played a couple of rounds with TP5x and like that ball.  I had first tried the AVX ball back in October, used it once on 10-4-2019, first time on a Par 3, first swing and got a hole in one.  Had not played AVX again! Why ruin a good thing!  True story.  But read many of the posts in this thread and for last 3 weeks have been playing AVX and like the ball.  Like the ball flight and ball might go a bit further than ProV1x. Like jayjay in post above, notice the ball jumps a bit more off SW & LW when chipping around the greens. It seems to come off hotter when chipping vs a ProV1x. I like the 80 compression feel of the AVX.

I won't purchase Titleist products on pure principle(long story) but I had a buddy that bought a couple of dozen of the AVX in 2018.   One of the rounds we played I noticed him over many more greens or a good bit past pin high than he was normally.  Finally he was frustrated and on our 16th hole where I had hit a good 8 iron (I play Srixon Zstar or XV depending upon firmness of the greens) he threw a AVX down to me and asked me to take a swing.   Of course I thinned the crap out of it, so he threw down another and I hit it as close as I can to the exact swing I had put on the first swing I made with the Srixon.

It came off the club higher, but then planed out more quickly.  It carried about 7 yards past my Srixon and didn't stop nearly as well.  On the 17th he asked me to hit one again, this time with a 7 iron( I am a high spin, somewhat medium-low trajectory player) and that 7 iron flew about 8 yards past my Srixon and rolled out 15 feet when it landed.

He said that his issue was the ball carried too far and since he is not a high spin player even his PW and GW were releasing, and with the low spin he noticed an even bigger problem hitting iron shots from the rough.  He took the last dozen he had back for a refund and went back to the Srixon.

I did not chip with them, but on the couple of strikes with the irons the ball felt not hard or soft, but they are not built for me.   YMMV
