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?
