Haha. I'm telling you, dollar for dollar, there isn't a better ball. I am really excited about the test though. Gotta get rested so it can get a fair shake. Night all.

 

Well... what happened?

Ok, this is the last of my ball reviews, unless/until I try out the Bridgestone B330RX (I'm waiting, Sactown). Today's round was played with one of my last new sleeves of ProV1X's that I've been doling out as judiciously as possible. Here I go:

 

Long Game

With the driver, the ProV1X is, for me, the second longest ball that I've tested (second only to, you guessed it, the Gamer). On average hits, it stays right with the pack around 240-250, but on a nice flush hit it seems to go farther than the others. I also found that the ProV1X was the second straightest, again, right behind the Gamer. I only hit 1 ball crooked today, and that was a very poor swing. I pushed a couple, but no real curve.

Off the irons, the ball performed as expected. Appropriate distances, good spin, no problems

 

Short Game

This is where the ball truly shines. Nothing spins as much as a ProV1 for me, at least nothing that I've tried. On half wedges, the ball checks up nicely and rolls to a stop. On full wedges, it stops and might spin back a bit depending on the green conditions. One shot that I know none of these other balls could replicate: I hit a full lob wedge on a really low (relative to a lob wedge), boring trajectory, right on the flag and in the air I was begging for it to stop. It landed, skipped forward, and stopped. Perfection.

Off the putter, no ball feels better to me. I've tried at least 8 different balls in a feel test with a variety of my Byron putters and nothing else is close.

Overall

If I had unlimited funds, I would have a big stash of Gamers and ProV1X's and I would pick the ball of the day based on what I needed. Long course? Gamer. Need lots of spin around the greens? ProV1X. As it is, with my very limited funds, I'll probably just play the Gamer. I will say that, for me, there is something special about looking down and seeing that classic script logo. I know that's nothing but brand-washing, but it is what it is.

Golf Galaxy had them on sale for $18 a box. I even took one out of the sleeve to look at it. But, in the end, I just couldn't do it. Guess I'm a ball snob.

I love using this ball.... when I find them on the course haha! They play well when I find them, which is very often!
