My Golf Spy Ball Lab Report-ProV 1


Recommended Posts

I switched from TP5X to Titleist Pro V1X mainly due to the ball test last year. Nothing has knocked it out of my bag. Knowing that the consistency of construction is there is worth it to me to have made the switch for that one reason.

I really look forward to Snell.... They seem to be the “premium” ball in the DTC group. Really curious about them...

Add in @TR1PTIK analogy to electrical circuits and that's what I'm looking for.

I don't need or want to pay 48 dollars (plus tax) for 12 golf balls.

We all know that there are "tiers" of balls - 
'tour level' 40+
'average' 30-40
'decent' 0-30

It's a shame that the first 2 blog posts were both tour level balls. Sure hope that the next few are for the average/decent range.
I'm okay if the core of my 3 piece ball is off center by 2 percent and it causes my shot to go offline 5 yards...I mean my swing is bad enough to cause that already. 😆

When I start shooting super low scores and have balls that last 2-3 rounds then maybe I can see the ROI for the tour level balls, but if I'm losing them at a semi-regular rate then there is no positive ROI.... even if I happen to save 1.29876 strokes and shoot a 78 instead of 79.

For me I feel the biggest difference in spin around the green.  I can't tell you the amount of times I see my brother hit a shot that by all accounts looks and sounds like it should one-hop and stop or at least check up and release and it just bounds across the green.

I get what you mean though.  I hate paying $4 a ball.  I usually get my pro V1x's in April/May when they do the buy three get one free deal.  works out to $36 a dozen, and they typically lasts me 2 seasons (along with some found balls or an extra dozen in the second year).

Been playing the X for the past year but just bought some Snell MTB-X. I'm now preferring the Snell. On the green, it's like they have disc brakes.

The more I see of that driver... the more I want to just buy one... must resist until I can get fitted.

Believe me, the ball goes like a scalded dog.  I've tried MG Tour C4s, Srixon Q Star Tours, Z Stars, and the Quantix F18, they all go and go and go.  Oh and I mustn't forget the humble Srixon Range Boulder.

Who else would like to see the Maxfli Tour or Tour X tested in the first 10 grouping?  I just sent Tony a message requesting one of these be included.

Yeah, the first 10(really the next 8 after chrome soft /pro v1) should be something like :

Bridgestone (bx/BXS) 

Srixon z-star

Snell MTB-X 

Vice Pro

Maxfli Tour 

Taylormade TP5

Current K-sig

Mizuno tour

I am curious if there will be anything that tops the ProV1, and super interested in how the V1x, -V1x and AVX do.  
 

Just bought a fresh box Of V1’s today.  Used some DSG points and saved a few bucks. 
 

It is just a good ball.  Hard to stray from it, and every time I do... I come back to it later.

I would be interested in the Maxfli Tour/TourX review sooner than later. Good ball for me, would not have believed it had a friend not given me a couple to try. Very interested in comparing Maxfli results to others I game (ProV1, Snell MTB-X, Chromesoft). I just appreciate these Ball Report testing results. Absolutely love the format/content. Think nearly everyone serious about golf ball tech can benefit from these reports.
