Golf ball R&D

Titleist Fan 216

My name is Mary W.  I live in central Texas.  It was cloudy and even rained on us during our round.  I compared the new prototype ball to a Lady ball by another manufacturer today.  I have been playing the Lady ball for about a year with pretty good results.  The prototype went at least 15 yards further off the tee.  My long irons and my hybrid all went further and straighter.  I seemed to be able to control the ball better.  It had a very soft feel off the wedges and definitely checked up quicker on the greens.  It came off the putter soft.   I cut 11 strokes off my score today.  WOW!! I love, love, love this golf ball.

Thank you so very much for including me in the test.  Can't wait to see this golfball on the market.

Hey Mary my name Tim L. and I  have just finish playing 9 holes and I would have to agree with you. This ball is awesome....the only problem I have is still too much sidespin for me off the driver, off the irons, wedges, hybrid, and putter just awesome...even though I hit the prototype ball  7-10 yards further than my current ball (pro v1)...maybe the new pro v1x might be my new ball with less side spin and the softness of the  new pro v1  :D

I played with the black numbered prototype and had a great round.Recorded 3 more birdies and had no double bogeys with this ball. What a great round. the ball has an amazing feel and gave me some added confidence. Can't wait to buy them.

Thanks Titleist your guys Rock.

Hey MIke

 

Have all the test balls been sent out? I have a coupe guys I play with my partner who has complete Titleist Clubs and bag and plays the Pro V as well as I do.  He just got test balls and loves them I was hoping I just had not got mine yet.

Thanks

Hi Michael,

Thanks for the post. The final wave should start hitting mailboxes next week. I can't confirm any names on the list but we try to include as many Team Titleist members as possible in opportunities like this. Thanks again.

Hi Barry,

Thanks for the heads up. I just tried both of the links again and they seem to be working on my end. Do you mind giving these another go and letting us know if you have any luck? Thanks.

I found how to give you a response. I sent it in and really enjoyed playing with the balls you sent me. I feel I shot a better game because it caused me to consentrait more. Send me another sleeve and I may shoot below par. Joe D.

Hmmm... how'd you get them?  It would be nice to be selected to be a part of an R&D.  I am on my 17th year of playing and never been part of one.  I honestly think I can make a good evaluation.

Hi Carlo Angelo,

The good news is that all Team Titleist members are considered for any potential upcoming product test panel opportunities. Just make sure to complete your profile and keep it up-to-date.

Keep in mind, each product test panel varies in size and we do our best to include as many members as possible in the different opportunities but the selection criteria can also vary from panel to panel.

I'm not sure what is on the horizon right now but hopefully we'll have some more opportunities in the near future.

Talk to you soon,

Mike

Mike, I was part of the recent R7D test of the new prototype ball. I went to the website as mentioned, but there was no place to login. I completed the Q&A and submitted it, however, I don't want Titleist to think that I never replied there for taking me off of you list for not responding.......  Walt

Hi Walt,

Thanks for the note and thanks for taking the time to test the prototype golf balls and fill out the survey, we really appreciate it. Regarding the log-in, that is actually a typo in the letter. As you found out, you are not required to log-in to the site for the survey. Our apologies for any confusion and thanks again!

I received a sleve of #1 Titleist golf balls from R&D. I went to the survey site and it said the survey site wasn't valid. If it is. The balls I played with were not good. Too much over spin on the draw or fade. I played a ProV1x as a comparison and there was no comparison. The balls felt like a rock when putting and the distance wasn't as long as my comparison ball. I hop this helps. I would really like to see the old blata ball come back. They didn't last as long but the control and spin was great. Bob Brock

I received a sleeve of golf balls to evaluate. I tried using the website Http://survey.titleist.com/s3/TitleistPrototype1 does not come up

Hi MIke, I completed my survery for the Pro V prototype test balls on Wed 10/16, but I dont think I had to log any of my TT information while doing so.  Just wanted to ensure Titleist recevied my completed survey results and didnt want tem / you to think I did NOT respond. 

I would be more than happy to re-complete if needed.

 

Thanks

Hi Brian,

No need to take the survey again. The survey did not require a username or password, there is a misprint on the instructions. Thanks.

I feel honored to have been in 2 ball test s in Houston  WindRose  and Kingwood

I did feel that the promo test balls played well  in both trials   and since I'm a senior  I have different out look on the balls

1st  how they play  distance, carry and putt     Velocity is a great ball   and is priced correctly  

I'm thankful for the chance that I had   and  to had a say so  in how the Velocity performed.
