Durability of the Pro V1 and Pro V1x

I am 14 years old. I am a good player who hits lots of fairways and greens. I have heard that the pro v1x does not have very good durability and can last a maximum of nine holes. It is said that the pro v1 is more durable, but the x suits my game better because I am a high ball hitter with plenty of distance. (Average Drive 265-270 yrds.) What do you have to say about the durability of the pro v1x?

Hi Christian when i have the Pro V1x that they lasted me at lease 3 rounds of  normal use. they are a great ball and well worth the invesment.

Hope this helps

Hi Christian,
Thank you for your feedback.  Of course, with a ball as soft as the Pro V1 & Pro V1x, it will be subject to scuffing from time to time especially when hit with multiple wedge shots.  While we're comfortable with the durability, we're always looking to improve...and you may just see this improvement in the next generation of Pro V1 & Pro V1x! ;) Stay tuned!

Thank you once again for your feedback!

Christian it's all about compromise, you get feel and control with the irons, or durabilty and more fairways.  The fact that your a long hitter just means you will hit more full wedge shots which will cut and scuff any of the better balls due to the aggressive grooves and the decending angle of the swing.  Shorter players hit more hybrids and long irons, then chip and pitch to the pin.  That type of player will get bored with a ball long before it needs to be changed out.  I am also a long hitter, but started golfing in the 1970's, the ProV1 and ProV1x are light years ahead of any of the balls we used to play. 

If you want to understand expspensive, find an old Titleist Balata and try to get more than a few good holes out of it.  In the 80's they were $50.00 a dozen, I could hit my 3 iron 260, and a good drive would cause them to oval, or you caught them thin and put a big smile in them, sometimes so deep you could see the inner windings. 

Including my PW, I carry 4 wedges, on my course in an average round those wedges are going to come into play at least 12 times, my putter is the only club I use more than that.  I play the ProV1 for feel, control, and ability to score.  I get 9 to 18 holes out of the ball in a competitive round, then it goes into the bag as a daily play until my son liberates it and eventually gives it a fitting watery burial, or feeds it to the dog.

Decide what your needs are and Pick the ProV that fits, there is really no other ball that is nead as good, and I can still chase my drives out there 300 +

Have fun.

I've never really had a durability issue with the Prov1x golf ball. They usually last me 3-4 rounds depending on how often my wedges are used. The durability has greatly improved with the new Prov1 line up. Not sure if you've had a chance to try the line but let me tell you that you won't be disappointed.

Cheers Shawn
