I've been a PV1x user for years, I'm a 2 handicap, former college player and play a couple times a month. I haven't tried the '13 models. I'm rethinking my ball choice for the first time in probably 15 years. With the x I feel like ball flight, distance and control are great, and I have no problem spinning the ball with full shots. My issue is after changing to the new CC groves on my wedges is I don't feel like I'm getting enough spin around the greens chipping, pitching and bunker shots.
Basically I'd like more green side spin, without having to worry about spinning the ball too much with my short irons, or sacrificing distance and the ball flight characteristics of the PV1x. In the past I've felt the PV1 has spun too much with my short irons. I don't want to rip full wedges back 20 feet etc. on soft greens.
With the new 2013 models the fitting charts are confusing saying the x spins more around the greens than the pv1... Is that correct? Would the conventional logic still be correct in that the PV1 spins more on chip shots? But how much other performance - distance, traj, wind play do you sacrifice with the PV1 in the search for a little more green side control?
