Which Golf Balls am I testing?

I received a sleave of Titleist golf balls this past week and asked to take a survay for Prototype2, it had a putting line that said TEST, and a Red number. 

I am hoping they release these golf balls, because my test results were very favorable.  They were long, consistent in the wind, and had a soft feel off chip shots and the putter. 

Would love to know what I was hitting, so I can keep an eye out for them.

Red #s are ProV1x balls.    ProV1's are black #

I got the same balls and completed the survey.. played Sunday with the usual guys and one (who played pro and has been my 4 ball partner this past year) commented that he'd never seen me drive the ball as well... at 60 it's always nice to find a yard or two off the tee and still be in the short stuff... the balls are black and have test where they might say prov1 on an aiming line.. the ball seems more durable as well... like the larger dimple pattern and would switch from my current prov1 to what I would guess is the the new prov1 tomorrow based on 3 rounds in ideal conditions here near Monterey, CA..

yes I did my testing and I think they out did themselves. Love the sound of the driver and it was very consistent into the wind and believe me it was windy. My shipping my goodness that baby sat. Mid irons good and held the green well. 

I Tested the new ball Vs a PROV 1 and like the old one better so I think we were testing a couple of new balls

Like Dan G., I'm also wondering which ball I received.  I received the black number and it may be just because I'm swinging well right now but this is the best ball I've ever played.  Appears to have less spin with more penetrating flight off the driver, and feels really good off the irons.  And spin is excellent around the greens. I'm going to be very disappointed when my sleeve of three balls is gone.  Like Deno, I'm assuming the black number ball is the ProV1 and the red number ball is the ProV1x, but I would really like a confirmation from Titleist.   

I've read the replies in other posts from Mike DePaolo that says these are just test balls that are part of the ongoing R&D process.  So I guess that's the only answer we'll get.  One thing for sure, I'll be buying the new ProV1 as soon as it hits the shelves in February. I'm hoping I'll get balls just like the ones I received for this test.  

I received the same and had the same results but can not find the survey site. Have you had any luck finding?

I had the red balls - felt they were very similar to an X, but a little lower trajectory (which I really liked) but MUCH more durable than the current X.  All in all it's hard to really tell distance without perfect conditions, and a perfectly repetitive swing, but they felt as good if not better than the current X.  

My biggest beef with the X is how easy it is to scuff with a short iron.  I have lots of retired X's that are now my practice balls due to a 52 degree wedge shot and subsequent big scuff on the cover...

I tested the black prototype1 balls today. Felt great driving the ball and I outhit with all clubs the  ZstarXV that I normally play. I was diappointed in the spin and the feel putting. But the drives were awesome. Not sure if it was a pro v1 or not. Usually I cut the cover on pro V1s with my wedges and this ball survived 9 holes with a few minor scuffs. It will be interesting to hear from Titleist what ball it was

I entered the string you listed into explorer and I got the survey page. How does the survery know that I'm giving my feedback and that I've tested the balls sent me????

Maybe they don't care.

If they don't know how will they know to send me the next testing item?

 

I got the black number 1 ball, also.  I liked this ball off the tee, but I was definitely disappointed in the spin with my wedges.  I went online to do the survey, and it did not prompt me for login info.

I too got the Red number and the Prototype 2 balls.  Not sure if they are the Pro V1 or V1x but seems like a hybrid between them to me.  About a bit longer than the Pro V1x with about the same side spin, but a heck of a lot softer around the greens and a bit more pin than the Pro V1.  I cannot wait to get these in my bag.

The test balls that I tested all have black letters and numbers.  From 150 yards in from the green had better control with the test ball. Around the green, chipping, pitching and putting was better with the test ball. I feel that my game was better by several strokes.

I feel that the test ball was not any better off the tee.  

I feel that the test ball out performed  other balls the I played.  I would use these balls when they are on the market.

how did you recieve these balls? i would like to try them on the course but dont know where to get them
