Ok I am very confused by all of the talk about these 2 new balls. I want to go try them but not sure which one yet. I hear that the S is softer, spinnier with better feel but shorter. Then I hear the non S is longer with less spin.Then I look at the Titleist website and it shows on the ball comparisons that the S spins less off of the driver, spins less off of the wedge and spins less around the green. So it is a softer ball with less spin? It seems to be an easy choice for the non S, longer off of the tee and spins better on wedges and around the green. I would appreciate any comments from people who tried them side by side or Titleist reps that know more about these two side by side.Thanks

I play with the ProV1. I tried the new NXT S. It's longer off the tee, it backs up on the green, and it's soft off the putter. Now, I have to choose between the two.

Scott, do you feel the NXT S is in the same category as the ProV1 and ProV1x??  I would think there would be major differences...

Just curious...

Guys I just played a round with the new NXT S, shot a 76 and had drives at 331, 340, and 343, ball is amazing. Played the entire round with one ball and it is still in good condition. Finally great ball for under $45 per dozen. Gotta try them... Dean

Jeff I tried the NXT Tour S a week ago and then just this weekend the NXT Tour. I didnt notice any difference in distance but did notice the Tour was harder feeling on putting. It boils down to what you want distance or feel and what your handicap is. I play off 10 and I will be getting the Tour S as I like the feel off the face of my irons and get more response through when putting. On a side note the Tour does not float!!! However neither did the old Cally that followed it in the same pond!

How does the NXT Tour S compare spin wise to the ProV1x? I am thinking of playing it but I'm not sure.

I believe that the NXT-S spins less across the board. I'm one full club longer with the NXT-S than I am with the ProV1x. The ProV1x holds the greens better for me than the NXT-S does though. I don't have the approach shot that backs up after it hits the green but if I did, I'd probably prefer the NXT-S. Also, the NXT-S is hotter off the putter face with a noticably softer feel than the ProV1x. My first 36 holes of the year were with an NXT-S and it held up very well. It has a lot going for it and I think it's certainly worth a try.

I was asked to participate in a study of 2 new balls some time ago and I presume they were prototypes for the new NXT balls. I say this in part because I have helped Titleist w/ ball testing and club testing for a few years now. Anyway, the balls I tested felt very similar to the old model NXT balls. I submitted my results and waited to see what they came up w/. I agree w/ you that the new NXT balls are no real imprvement over the old balls. In fact, in several ways, they are worse. I played the old NXT balls exclusively for a number of years. They always felt solid w/ both irons and drivers/woods. Spin was very good. Chipping was superb, as was putting in terms of feel and feedback. The new balls fail me in all of these regards. I've reported this to Titleist and told them I'm looking for a new ball. Maybe DT Solo or other balls are worth a try. I have a feeling you and I are not alone in our opinions.

I was sent the nxt tour and the new nxt tour s for a survey which I would like to respond to but can't find.

I certainly appreciate the low ball flight off the driver.  It comes in handy and is effective in the windy conditions I normally play in.  I prefer the NXT Tour over the S, but only by a slight margin.  Around the greens was where I found the difference.  The "Tour" ball responded better to off-center contact and seemed to roll out better on chips and longer putts.  The "S" ball was less forgiving on marginal contact.  I do appreciate the NXT performance with less spin then the VI.  The NXT performance complements my game better.

Has anyone noticed how much more durable the NXT Tour-S is compared to the ProV's are?

I also was sent the two NXT balls and asked to give an opinion.  I really like the NXT Tour S in the high optic yellow.  It goes as far as some of the distance balls I was previously playing.  Pro V1 has better stopping power on the greens, but all and all I really like the lower ball flight off the driver with the NXT S.

Mike....I too am trying to complete an evaluation on the new NXT's, but the link provided goes to this discussion page, not any kind of survey. Is there a survey or are you looking for narrative evaluation?

Bubba is that you? What's Bubba Watson doing on this site? 

I hit the ProV1s about an average of 420 yards.

HI, I`M A DISABLIED VETERN (WHO FRACTURED MY BACK  T-8 AND T-12 ALSO FRACTURED MY PELVIS) I  RECIEVED THE NEW TITLEIST NXT AND THE NXT S.   I PLAYED BOTH BALLS ON A ROUND TODAY.  NINE WITH THE NXT AND NINE WITH THE NXT S,  THE NXT S WAS THE BEST BALL FOR SOMEONE WHO PLAYS WITH A DISABILITY.  MY SWING SPEED IS AROUND 74 TO 85 MPH. I PLAY WITH A  TAYLOR MADE /R11 AND PING RAPTURE BLACK DOT.    I LOVE THE FEEL OF THE NEW  NXT S, AND THE YELLOW IS NOT BAD !! BUT WOULD LIKE TO TRY  SOME WHITE ONES.  THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME TEST YOUR NEW NXT`S.   (NOTE: I HAVE TO US CAPS AS I CAN NOT SEE REAL WELL)!!    I HAVE PLAYED TITLEIS FOR MOST OF MY GOLFING LIFE.  I PLAYED THE PRO V1 .  THEN AFTER I WAS RETIRED FROM THE US ARMY AFTER 24YRS 8 MO 2 DAY.. MY DOCTOR AT THE VA SAID "YOU NEED TO PLAY WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY" FOR EXERCISE. ..GOLF.. I USE MY ARMS AS I CAN NOT TURN WELL .   SO THANK YOU FOR THE  NEW S BALL I WILL TRY TO FIND SOME AND PLAY (IN WHITE)  SOME MORE.

I DID HAVE A HOLE-IN-ONE BACK IN 2005 AT THE  FORT RILEY CC..PLAYING WITHA TITLEIST PV 1.

I am deciding whether to get the nxt tour or nxt tour - s.  i like the sound of more spin and better feel on the nxt tour s. but i dont want to lose too much distance on my drives by going with a softer ball.  does anyone notice if the distance is just a yard or two or a noticeable difference?

CrazyGolfNut


I too am very confused on which one would work the best.  I think the Tour might be the best but I need to buy a sleeve of each to find out.  Don't know if they will be able to replace the Chrome that I now play but I am willing to give it a try.

   I'm a super senior that once played to a 5 .. however time has it's way and I'm suddenly a 15 and struggling!!  For my swing and needs .. ie; Maximum distance with a ball that is also easy to draw or fade ... my choice is the NXT .... Thank you very much for the chance to test them .. Bud Clark
