For me ... The Pro v1x
I use both. I play the ProV1x during the summer months when the greens are harder, then switch to the NXT Tour S during the colder and wetter months. I find i get nearly the same ball performance year round that way.
I actually love the NXT tour ball off the driver and irons. Straight and long... My only problem is around the greens when chipping. There are times when I need to hit a shot that checks and the NXT tour doesn't do that. When greens are wet and soft I'd throw a NXT TOUR on the tee all day, but when they firm up you have to play the PRO V1x or even the 1.
I coach golf and fit my better players with Pro V1 and Pro V1x. My mid Golfers that shoot in the 90's I bought the NXT-Tour-S. What I found out about the NXT's is they are good when hitting a full shot into the green. When it comes to bump and run or finesse shots around the green they seem too light and don't stop. Ended up trading them out for more Pro-V1x
can't beat the Pro V1
Depends. The NXT is as close to a pro ball as you will find. It is that good. Close enough in spin performance that many people can't differentiate the difference. If you cannot, save the extra $20 and go with the NXT. Did I say it was REALLY good???
I have been playing Pro v1x since i start playing Titleist golf balls, and i think Pro v1x is better than NXT tour.
I have been playing the NXT Tour for the past four years and love it. I have found it to be straighter off the tee and longer than any other Titleist ball that I've tried. On mid to long iron shots into the green I've found little to no difference between the NXT Tour and the Pro V1x for my swing (I hit a 7 iron about 150 yards). On short irons and wedges, the Pro V1x stops faster on the green, but all in all, I've found the NXT Tour to be a great ball for me.
Both are terrific but Pro V1X for me , especially after testing the new ones a few months ago.
The distance and performance around the greens, to me. is what put's it over the top.
In my opinion they are worth the price difference from the NXT.
ProV1x is the best. If you're concerned about price, they're on sale in most places right now at 39.99/doz. Titleist also usually has a special round the end of the year where you can buy 3 get 1 free. So you're getting them at about $<40/ doz at that rate. Stock up!
The ProV1x is going to spin more, obviously. Keep in mind that doesn't just affect your short game. Errant shots can be affected by this too. If you slice the ball, it's going to be a worse slice because you are playing a ball that spins a lot. and obviously same goes for hooking. Pay attention to your miss hits, not just how it reacts when you chip it.

I also switch during the colder months to the NXT tour ball. Living in NC, I play all year long, so when it's less than ideal I like to use what I would consider a softer ball, and have found the results to be positive.
