Pro v1x or NXT tour?

ProV1 for me. I have always played this ball. I have such great control and I can spin it very well. I get good distance as well. Some day when I finish my 4 dz ProV 1's I'll try the ProV1X's!! But for now it's ProV1 !!!

Have always played top of line Titleist except for a year or so when another brand had their HT balata... but am approaching 50 and am watching these kids just bomb away. It's unreal. I hit it about 270 off the tee with ProV1x on a very solid drive assuming no wind and flat landing area.

YESTERDAY tried NXT!

For me the distance off of the tee is definitely measurable and straighter than Pro V1x or Pro V1. I freaked out on 9th. Usually have about 140-165 on a decent drive but had 95!

I think that unless you are playing very hard greens you could be better off with the NXT. I am playing softer greens and these balls drop, stop and spin back. If you are playing brick greens no ball is going to help you... may as well have shorter clubs into greens and learn how to play where you don't short side yourself all the time and need to flop it.

I am now going to try the Velocity. Don't care. 4 handicap and the ego is out the door on this one. I am betting that the Velocity will perform even longer and straighter than NXT and stop as well.

Ask your pro to arrange for the Titleist Tour Van to come to your course to do a 'proper' ball fitting.  We recently had the team come up to Atkinson CC in NH, and the 15 - 20 minutes spent hitting balls with the launch monitor provided all the details and information, and the interpretation and feedback provided by the Titleist Staff was awesome.

 

 

I was in a quandary about NXT/V1/V1x until I read this post.  I've played NXT on a few holes and gained measurable yards and Seamus is right about soft/hard greens.  I too am going to put my 6 handicap ego out the door and use NXTs.

How do you know if the Pro v1x or the Pro v1 is the better ball for me?

I love both versions of the Pro V1.  But in my experience as a 15 to 18 handicapper, the Pro V1x is easier to manage off the tee and approach shots.  I prefer the Pro V1 for putting and chipping, but my long game is not quite there yet for the Pro V1 (too much backspin from that distance for me).  I view the Pro V1x as the "game improvement" or "more user friendly" version of the two.  I look forward to "graduating" to the Pro V1 during 2014.  If not, I will gladly stay with the Pro V1x indefinitely.

Couldn't agree with you more - as another higher handicap (and older/slower) player.  I'm hoping to augment my short game with more spin around the greens, so maybe I can definitively decide between NXT Tour and the 1X.  I haven't tried Velocity or DT Solo, but NXT Tour/ProvV1X have definitely played better than the Brand X's I've ended up donating to First Tee.  Because of the amber, I've tried the NXT-Tour-S, but it tends to wander more, for long hits, like a Pro V, for me.  The other deciding factor would be if NXT Tour or ProV1x came in amber.  I can't track white balls on cloudy days and spend too much time looking for them if I don't have another player with me to spot.

Happy New Years, Don!  My favorite yellow Titleist ball is the DT Solo.  Its cover has a decent and predictable amount of grip on the green.  In MY experience, I saw no noticable greenside spin difference between the DT Solo and the NXT Tour S.  In MY experience, the DT Solo flies a little farther than the NXT Tour S off the tee and with the full shot irons.  I think the DT Solo is Titleist's best yellow ball.  There are many people who think, dollar for dollar, the DT Solo is Titleist's best ball.  BTW, the DT Solo has a darker shade of yellow than the NXT Tour S.

I live in Ohio just got back from wild dunes resort in South Carolina and I tried the Pro v1x balls and thought they were very great golf ball. They gave me great control off the tee and around the greens. Most of all for my game a little more distance. Great ball....

Dan V1 -

DT Solo is something I hadn't tried since the previous version.  I had a stash of the former NXT - now exhausted.  I've been happy with the NXT and ProV1x, on sunny days.  With updates coming with the PGA show in a couple of weeks and the ground condititons here approaching permafrost, I'll have to see what to do for cloudy days in 3 months.  If the choices are still just the Tour-S and DT Solo, I'll try a sleeve of the DT Solo. 

Thanks for the suggestion.

For me personally I prefer the NXT. I think they are both top of the line golf balls but for my game the NXT just feels better

Hey Tyson!

Even though the NXT Tour S is touted as the softer NXT, I prefer the feel of the NXT Tour off my mid irons.  Of the two, the non-S feels "meatier."  For me, the redeeming quality of the S is the yellow option.  In my case, I go with the DT Solo in yellow!  Of the white balls, I have played the Pro V1x against the NXT Tour head-to-head numerous times and my Pro V1x scores at the end of the round average about FOUR shots BETTER.  It doesn't matter if it's a 96 or an 87.  Both are straight off the tee and equally far.  HOWEVER, the Pro V1x behaves better around the dance floor!  Consequently, my bag consists of the WHITE Pro V1x and the YELLOW DT Solo.

As others have said on slow, soft greens the NXT Tour would be fine. I hit a 5 iron today into a soft green with the ball stopping next to the divot. In the summer that wouldn't happen.
I have played both and prefer the proV1 line. Had been playing the 1X, but when the 2013 line came out found the 1X was "harder" and switched to the 2013 ProV1. Love the way it feels and acts around the green. As for the spin off driver, I can live with it, to get the best ball for me around the green. Never have been a bomber so have always relied on short game! Either way, you're using the best balls in golf! Good Luck! Now if the weather would just give a man a break!!!!

nothing but the "X" for me can't believe how far it travels and rolls. try it you will be amazeed
