Have been waiting for this one.  I just put the ball in play about a month ago and have absolutely loved it.  One of the quickest equipment change/selctions I have ever had.

I was playing Bridgestone BXS.  But I do from time to time throw a ProV down just for comparison, but all of my baseline results are from BXS.  For sake of V vs. left dash,  ProV is a noticeably softer and does provide me a touch more spin.  But that's about all I can do for you there.

What is the difference between the left dash and the regular Pro V1x?

Left dash is a slightly firmer feeling ball and generally spins less on full swing shots throughout the bag.

You got it.  I am not surprised.  B-RX is a low spin ball, especially the previous generation. ProV definitely doesn't fit that description.

Stroker, if I'm remembering properly you have a high swing speed, correct?  

 

What is it that you like about the ball?  I play the regular Pro VIx - what would the differences be between the two?

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Another great report from Tony and another ball that I'm simply not that surprised about. I'd certainly love try left dash, but I don't think it would be a good fit for me at the moment. Definitely looking for a touch more spin on all clubs for the time being.

So, this ball intrigues me a great deal. The review is glowing, and I've thought about switching. However I wonder if playing with a low spin ball in my setup would actually be detrimental. 

Off the tee I'm using G410 LST and trackman numbers pegged me about 2200 spin w/ swing speed of 112-117mph using a Wilson range ball. I normally play a Z-Star, so would switching tank my spin #'s too low? Is there such a thing as too low? I realize green side the left- might provide less control, but beyond that it gets a bit confusing.

I really don't understand enough about the subject to speak intelligently about it, so any insights would be greatly appreciated!

Definitely such a thing as too low! If the ball doesn't get enough spin, it'll just fall out of the sky. You'll strike a good one and it looks like the ball is coming back down before it even got to its peak height, which is costing you carry yards. Visually, I like my shots to look like they're just hanging on/drifting for a split second before they fall back down to earth. (I generally have the opposite problem where they balloon and just float out there forever.) Greenside, I think you'd actually be surprised, since greenside spin is mostly determined by the cover and not the core. TL;DR - a ball that's low-spin off the driver may still have enough greenside spin for your game if it has a thin urethane cover.

Have you ever tried the Z Star XV? I love the XV and find the regular Z Star nearly unplayable for being too spinny. I do wonder if, before shelling out $50 for a ball you may hate, you might grab a sleeve of the AVXs and the regular ProV1x and see what you think. If the AVX is slightly lower-spinning than left dash and the regular V1x is slightly higher spinning and a touch softer than left dash, you might be able to triangulate if it's worth placing an order. (And just as an aside, it's really hard to make a judgment about your game using range balls.)

I've been playing this ball for a year, and it's really the perfect fit for me. I'm not really price sensitive, I'm performance sensitive. I wanted a lower spin ball, especially off the irons - with the ProV1, I had iron shots backing up 15-20 feet on greens. The Left Dash stops just about exactly where it lands for me, even on relatively firm greens.

I get plenty of short game spin/control, and it flies high enough for me off the driver, and plenty long. I also find it very consistent from ball to ball, box to box - typical of my experience with Titleist.

I've switched to this ball as a result of the study Tony did and I have no plans to switch back. I had bounced around playing ProV1s, ProV1xs, BXs and BXSs - I have a high swing speed (109-115) and am generally a high spin player so I know I need to be in a firmer ball, but value control on my short irons and wedges. So it's been a balancing act of trying to find the right fit for me game.

The -ProV1x is the perfect fit for my game. With the spinny/high launch balls I would spin back 9 Irons and less up to 20 feet or more (pending green undulations obviously). With low launch/low spin balls I'd have trouble controlling distance and getting balls to react how I'd like them to.

With the higher launch of the Left Dash I don't need as much spin to control my approaches into the green. Instead of spinning everything back I've gotten to more of a one hop & stop or one hop & spin back a few feet which is ideal (for me anyway). Anyway - really thrilled to be able to put this ball into play and I don't see any changes coming on that front. To that end - anyone want a fresh box of Bridgetone BXS (non-Tiger) balls?! 🤣
