Live commentary would have absolutely been cool.  That said, it was all hands on deck the whole week. Unfortunately if we were not averaging about 2 balls per minute the test would not have been completed and that was our first priority.

 

Moving forward though we plan to do some more LIVE testing stuff at the test facility and we will make sure to include some more commentary.

I for one would be very interested in that!

I may have missed a post on this somewhere, but if they didn't take the opportunity to also test the Titleist Blind Test Balls as part of this comprehensive Ball Test - MGS missed a great opportunity.

MGS headquarters tests are primarily focused on golf products any consumer can buy at retail today.  The blind test balls don’t fall into that category.

Why would they test a test ball? Titleist is going to use the feedback from this as well as anyone else they sent the balls too and more than likely their tour staff and then tweak it where necessary before it goes into production if it goes into protection.

is soft slow? that is the question......:)

What is soft?  How do balls at the same compression compare.  If you like soft is there a better soft?

Fair comments both, and I don't disagree.  I was just saying that a calibration of the test balls against the array of competitor (and their own) balls would be interesting as well useful for the tweaks.  I'm sure Titleist has done their own similar testing and know exactly how these test balls perform in these categories and against competitor balls, but alas, we don't get to see that testing.  More data is good data as far as I'm concerned - especially when it is independent 3rd party testing. 

I guess I'll wait for the 2023 Ball Test results to see how the new Titleist offerings stack up against Pinnacle range balls, and reclaimed lake balls ;).

I am sure Titleist does not need MGS to do robot testing on their balls and Titleist has tested the "blind balls" 100x over.  as far as MGS goes, why test a ball that is not even out yet and may not ever reach the consumer market?

Because MGS partnered with Titleist to help test the balls before they reach the consumer market.  That's all.

Testing a non production ball provides zero value while adding some additional time to the test as well as analysis. 
 

Just speculation but of the number of golfers who will read the ball study there’s probably a small percentage that are aware 1) that titleist has a ball currently in white box testing 2) that mgs has a forum testing in progress for that same ball. So the juice isn’t worth the squeeze

I would volunteer my time to be a "play by play" or a "color" guy for the next test.....we could take questions from the fans and present live preliminary data during the broadcast.   If you do it, im in......

I like the fact they are trying “Refurbished” Pro Vs. I know they are garbage, but I would like to see how bad they really are. 

i just bought the new Pro Vs and will compare them to some prior version new Pro Vs and my regular gamer the Srixon Z-Star. Will be interested to see if I can tell the difference and whether it impacts my scores. 

I should note that I love the Srixon Z-Star. It’s a great ball.
 

 

Me too. I switched from ProVs. I played a tournament this weekend and the guy I was paired with was playing Pro V1 vs. my Z-Star. I was right next to him, or just past every time.
