Pro V1 Left Dash Alternatives


Recommended Posts

Was wondering if anyone has found a ball that is similar or comparable to the left dash. I love it off the tee and with my irons but it is a little too hard chipping and putting with a clicky sound. Also they can be hard to find so was wondering if anyone has something comparable. I have heard the tp5x is close but recently those balls have had issues with their core and are now under quality checks. Also if anyone has a way to test golf balls other then buying a ton of them and spending a bunch of money to try one golf ball that insight would be fantastic.

Try the Maxfli Tour or Tour X. If you like them, you can sign up for Dick's SMS alerts and get $20 off your first $100+ order. Despite them saying the 48 pack are on sale, just present the promo code at the register and it worked for me. 48 balls were only $98.

I would have to agree. I didn't think the new Chrome Tour would pull me away from my gamers (OnCore and the Pro V1 families). That's not to say that I won't buy some left - (or Pro V1 -) or other Pro V1s, but I really liked the Chrome Tour and Tour X during my MGS testing opportunity. I haven't tried the Maxfli Tour X's yet. I have tested the Bridgestone MindSet RX and they are good balls, but not as good as the Chrome Tour/X or Pro V1/X/-. 

I could play golf every day and learn something new each time.

I've found the Vice Pro Plus to be reasonably close to the left dash performance wise. Have you given that a try?

I have not played a -ProV1 but aren't they supposed to be the less spinny model?  If so the Maxfli Tour X spun too much off the driver and woods for me so not sure that would be the right comparrison.  Maybe the Maxfli Tour is worth a look for you.

I’m really starting to like the Bridgestone BRX. It flies straight off the tee and can spin nicely into greens. I haven’t noticed any large distance loss or gain.

I started playing  - Pro V1 about a year ago while playing off 13.7 since then i’v got down to 9.7 and I put a lot of it down to the extra distance off the tee with the left dash. ⛳⛳⛳

Relax and play golf ⛳⛳⛳

1.) OnCore Vero X2

For those who have suggested the Maxfli Tour, that ball is absolutely nothing like the Left Dash. The Maxfli Tour X is much closer, but it is slightly higher spinning than the Left Dash.

My absolute favorite ball on the market Maxfli tour x!  I doubt you would be disappointed especially for the price of the 48 pack

I have a cobra rad speed driver, cobra fly z 3 and 5 wood, taylormade m1 irons (5-PW), Top Flite Gamer wedges (52,56,60), and odyssey white ice putter. When I’m playing to keep score I typically play the Maxfli Tour X. When just getting a round in with friends or scrambling I play whatever I might find on the course or might find at the bottom of my bag.

I tried the Chrome Tour X earlier in the year and was blown away by it. Definitely softer feel than Left Dash, but for me the minor tradeoff in distance is worth it around the greens.

I didn’t even think about the OnCore Vero X2. Good call!

If you're looking for a ball "fitting" tool - Ping's Ballnamic is a good one. If you've got sim data I would imagine it is even better. 5 fittings per purchase; be careful because they aren't the clearest on what constitutes a single "fitting" and those rack up quickly, though. Ballnamic is where I found the Chrome Tour rec.

I suppose my first question is "in what way?" I could switch back and forth pretty easily between Left Dash and Chrome Soft X LS last season, but the new Chrome Tour is definitively this year's gamer. Much, much softer, but they took a ton of spin off it in the long game. The Tour BX is another 'bomber' ball for me, but I can't control the spin on anything less than ~7i and it just rips. The Vero X2 is probably the closest 'comparison' ball I've played, but check my review for more of the head-to-head description (linked below).

The 2019 TP5x is probably the closest I've played, but good luck finding them now that they're 2 models old. Allegedly the new Wilson Staff Model X was built to be a direct Left Dash competitor, but if its spin profile is anything like the prior-gen Staff Model, then there's no way it's apples-to-apples. IMO, basically everything else in the 'X' space is going to be quite a bit spinnier than Left Dash, which will cost you some distance.

If you're wanting to get comparable performance (flight, spin) you may need to look at the sub-Tour-level urethane offerings like Srixon Q-Star Tour, Taylormade Tour Response, the new Chrome Soft, etc. The feel will be so, so different, but I think you'll find the launch monitor data to be reasonably comparable unless you're also a super high swing speed.

I swing at about 105-110 and am using the srixon soft feel - dimples compress a little - but what I find is that it doesn’t really rip back too much which is great !

I've never played the left dash, but it appears to be designed as a low spin, high compression ball.  An inexpensive distance ball such as the Bridgestone e9 might give you what you want.

14 of the following:

Ping G430 Max 10.5 degree

Callaway 2023 Big Bertha 3 wood set to 17 degrees

Cobra F9 Speedback 7/8 wood set at 23.5 degrees

Mizuno 923 JPX HM HL 6-GW

Hogan sand wedge 56 degree bent to 53

Maltby M Series+ 54 degree

The closest ball I've found to the Left Dash is the Srixon Z-Star XV. Slightly softer IMO, but low spin and great distance.
