Choose whatever scenario you wish as cause for a world suddenly void of the vaunted ProV1 and ProV1x balls - your preferred ball.  Now, forced to choose a replacement, which ball would you put into play?  Wouldn't it be fun to hear what the touring pro players would choose... were it based purely on performance.

Snell MTB-X. All the way 

On a funny side note.   Yesterday I played in a scramble that was raising funds for a local Head Pro and his fight with cancer. I pulled up to the Bag Drop and as I was getting out I heard a voic

I just switched to left dash X  a few months ago and was playing Bridgestone BXS before.  BXS is a great ball but I think I would move to BX.  It is supposed to be lower spinning than BXS, I don't need the spin and I like a firmer golf ball.  Plus who wouldn't want a touch of ball speed from the firmer golf ball.

Bridgestone tour B XS. 

As a junior golfer many moons ago I always found myself sticking with the Pro V1 and V1x, at times I was using the Callaway HEX. When I got back into the game a little over a year ago and was paying for my own golf balls, I tried the BXS due to the great price and reviews I read at the time. I compared it to the new Pro V1 line and ended up playing the Tour B XS ball all year and couldn't be happier.

Seeing what the Pro's would choose is very interesting, and in this scenario with no Pro V there may not be Snell. I bet it would be Taylormade or Srixon for the pros, and I would say for me it would probably be Srixon.

Snell MTB Black or X would probably be my 1st choice. 

If I had to go with a major manufacturer I would probably have to narrow it down from the Taylormade, Bridgestone and Srixon balls

Seed 001 - which is one of the ball I play anyway. Tis the closet ball I have found to a Pro V and is 2/3 the price.

I would guess the non Taylormade sponsored Pros would go Bridgestone.

The Bridgestone Tour BXS.  If you haven't tried it, don't unless you're willing to switch to it from whatever you game!

I have heard some say it's too spinny for them, but all in all it's a great ball...I kicked my Pro V1 habit for good with them.

I think the 'what would the pros play' is an interesting question considering how many choose to play Titleist off-contract, but the other wrinkle to that story would be, "how many of them played Titleist growing up because that's what was given to them?" In both high school and college, we were given Titleists for tournaments. (Professional 90s in high school, ProV1 in college, for those wondering exactly how old I am) - if all of your junior and collegiate success is built around the prestige of a single brand and you don't have any contract offers to play something different, why not stick with what you know for your game?

Personally, as soon as I lost my Titleists from the tournament, I was back to playing whatever I could afford or find. Even today where the phrase "disposable income" isn't a pipe dream, the only way I'm playing a Titleist is if I find it.

I’ve played nothing but Snell MTB’s for about 4 years. I buy myself a dozen Pro V1’s on sale every year or so, but I’d never buy them regularly. Pro V1’s don’t perform better than Snell MTB’s IME, they’re reportedly a little more consistent (manufacturing quality control) - but my game can’t pick up that benefit...

After decades of steady Titleist use...from the 70's Pro Traj 90's & 100's to the present day ProV's, and various experiments with others through the years, I am now a Snell convert.  I just got 5 dozen to last us through 2021.
