Test Ball

I have PRO V1 in my profile.  Two years ago I got TEST balls with a black number.  I assume that was the latest generation PRO V1.  This year I received TESTballs with a dark red number on them.  I assume this is the new NXT Tour.  Anyone else get the same?

 
Mine have black numbers, like the current NXT Tour S...interesting.

I got the same thing, 3 balls in white sleeve, no words. Ball says "test" with red #2. Played with it today and its longer than my previous ball. Could be the placebo effect, but it was 10-15 yds longer off of driver and fairway woods.

Been holding on to the sleeve I got a week ago. Been saving them for a tourney I'm in this weekend. Plan on using them just to get in the competitions head. Word is already out that I'm bringing a secret weapon. 

Cover look and feel and appears to be like the Fusablend cover on the NXT line.  Also the dimple size is like the current NXT line. So far (1/2 round) performance appears to be similar to this line as well.  If the numbers color is consistent then mine would be the NXT tour.  If this is so, I can tell some differences from the current line.  Fun to guess and have the opportunity to part of R&D side.  Just want to be able to give them good feedback regarding feel, distance, trajectory and spin into and around the green.   

..........prepping for my 8:50 tee time at Orchard Valley & will test these balls - back shortly! 

I received the "test balls"  in the mail.  I'm getting too old to use the ProV 1 balls--no clubhead speed.  I first dropped to the NXT versions then found that the Velocity works well for me.  I could tell no difference in the "test ball" and the Velocity.  I do love and have always prefered the trademark "TITLEIST" on my golf balls

test balls 'black" arrived today.Out Monday for a test 

drive.

I just received mine today. I was totally surprised. I had NXT Tour S optic yellow and received the sleeve of optic yellow ones. I was ready to put the clubs away for the season since Central Ohio has gone from Summer to Winter. Now, I think I'll be out to try them tomorrow.

Got my balls last monday, played them today in Minnesota. I usually play the NXT Tour and found these to actually roll much further on the ground with my drives than the NXT's or Pro-V's I've played in the past. My were black "1" and the word "test" on the side.  I liked them but as with happens in MN this time of the year, lost them in the leaves.

I was able to use these test balls this week. They feel great and are easy to play. They really sound and hit great. I was able to gain at lease 15 more yards . Please send me more.

Being fairly new to team Titleist, I have yet to participate in any test/demos. Can't wait to try but love reading people's feedback on here. Hopefully this week it gets out of the 40s and I can get out and play a few rounds. 

seeing how the pro Vs new ones come out 2013 and they clubs every 2 years i say the balls to so i think the red number might be the new nxt tour but they may never been out

Played 9 holes today with the red number ball.  50 degrees slight wind.  Ball had great distance with high ball flight, and straight.  Very nice around greens, even chipped one in from 20 yards off the green.  Nice soft feel off the putter.  Assuming this is the new NXT Tour, I'll be playing it when it comes out.

...Ditto.  Driver/woods/hybrids were all as long or longer than NXT Tour and Pro V1X.  On a par 5 with a dog leg I drove through the fairway.  A first.  Looked to be mostly on the roll out, but stopped around the green.  Pared both par 5s with second shots that kept going and going.(only had time to play 2 balls for  9 holes).  If the red number test ball comes to market, I'd be happy to buy it.  I've now moved on from the old NXT.

used one yesterday played 18 in 48 degree weather they were fantastic. great spin on the greens,and long ,and stright wish i knew what they were i,d buy a couple dozen for next year (only because my sons don,t buy balls or tees)(dad has them)
