I got these in the mail today.  Anybody got any ideas as to what they might be?  New ProV's or maybe a totally new line?

Awesome and congrats! Hope to find some in my mail box soon!

Interesting - I think in the past, the prototype balls for testing were sent out in late-fall. Since the new ProV1 balls will come out in 2015, this could be this round of test balls...

Guys and gals, it has been said many, many times. these are proto type balls. They could be similar to any one of the current production balls, or they could be something one of the crazy engineers has come up with. That is why they call them proto type balls.

I also found the prototype balls in the mailbox yesterday.....Stopped by the practice area at a local course today and rolled a few putts.  I used all three of my gamers,  Circa 62 #6,  TEI3 Newport 2 and a Made for tour Newport 2.  rolled both balls against a NXT tour and found them to be very similar.  Hope to make it out to the course again in the next few days and play a round and get a better feel for them




Great! Hope I get some.


Prototypes are anything at all that Titleist wants them to be.  I truly liked the last round of test balls I received--and they turned out to be the 2013 Pro V1 and Pro V1x'es.  Got my fingers crossed to receive this year's prototypes, as well so I can give them a good workout.

Kaleb G

got mine today. I think they feel similar to the pro v1x.



Chris R

How would I be able to get these balls to test them.  I love Titleist golf ball

Cory B

I got some today. I will be putting them to the test this week. Can't wait to see how they compare to the current retail offerings. 

Feedback to follow.

Daniel H

Darn! I must have missed out this time around


Received mine yesterday, plan to hit the course for some testing tomorrow. 


Interesting picture for test balls. I hope to get mine, especially if it is the new ProV.


I also received two sleeves of prototype balls today, 3 x dots and 3 x diamonds. I managed to walk 6 holes after work today playing both balls on each hole.

I'll play and practice some more with them before commenting fully, but I can tell you this.....I'm very excited!!

Alex M

Hope I get mine soon!!!

Nicholas B

I wondered that myself. It's so wet here I couldn't tell that much. The square was a long one though.

Jerry R

Got mine today, can't wait to try them out this weekend.


Got mine today. With dot and square or diamond according to how you see it. Will start testing today. 

Carl T

Got mine and played both balls alternating holes yesterday. Today I will chip and pitch exclusively on our practice area with both balls. My gut so far is that they are both similar. One thing I noticed is that when I made a good swing with my driver these balls go as far or further than the proV1x that I like to play. Also they seem to go straighter with very little fade or draw with the exception of a couple of hooks yesterday ( bad swings). After one round I would say it is a tie between the square and the circle. With my 3 wood and 17 degree hybrid off the fairway they rocket out low and straight which is a little different than the higher trajectory I am used to seeing although the distance is the same or a little further. More testing to come.

Todd T

Patience all...... I was told I'm getting them and they haven't arrived yet; and I'm 30 minutes from Titleist!


I haven't seen them yet but look forward to everyone's thoughts. This is one of the coolest things Titleist does for it's players. (Even the "non staff" players like us :) 

I'm hoping they're in the mailbox when i get home!


looking for a few sleeves!

Love testing any and all Titleist products!

Marcus F

I hope i recieve the 2014 titleist prototype golf balls.

I have religiously been a long time Pro V1X player, but have never once been sent any Titleist golf balls to test. I was at the Heritage last week and the Titleist rep down there told me the PGA pros had the new Pro V1 prototypes on the range and were testing them.  Pretty cool that we the regular golfers are receiving prototypes to test a week later.

I just wish Titleist would send this 5 handicapper who plays 60 rounds a year some balls to test sometime.

Brandon A

Looks pretty cool. Hope they are the new Pro V line

I also got mine today. I will play on Sunday, and will play the squares on the front and he circles on the back 9. Just by doing the fingernail test, both seem to be soft covers, but the square ball seems a little bit softer. I will hit all shots from all distances, since I am knocking off a years worth of rust, and my ball flies everywhere right now. I will post some feedback on Monday. So far, they seem to roll very nice on my putting green out back, no difference between them and the prov1x's I usually play.

Kevin M

I've never been included but still live in hope. Weather finally improving in north east England so come one Titleist I'm ready and more than willing.

Todd T

Thanks TT, putting them in play tomorrow at La Costa!

Matthew P

nice.. hope to get some soon.. 


WOW!!!! Test balls are already out!!! I hope I'm lucky enough to test some out.

Dan H

Would love to test something along the lines of the ProV or ProV1's. 


Messed around with them today...will not tell which shape I preferred to not skew results.

Ball A on the first hole...hit a wedge into the green and it released about 8 feet.  Odd...not my usual with my v1x.  This ball also putted with a heavier feel.

Ball B I used the majority of the round...no lie, it felt longer than my normal ball by about a 1/2 an iron...hit some bombs with the driver.  Softer feel off the putter than my normal v1x.

i hope they are not the same ball and I got found out how mental i am...they definitely felt different.

I was fortunate enough to receive the two different sleeves of prototype balls a couple of days ago. We have our Member-Member tournament this weekend, which means I obviously can't put them in play for it, but can't wait to try them out! Thank you Titleist...Consistently making the best products on the market!!

Ayman Z

Played them today.. Great feel and distance from the square balls, surprised that a softer ball is longer than the harder one.

Cannot wait to see what it would be.

James P

i received mine today in the mail. but mine has an arrow line with "test" in the center. mine had no dots or diamonds. wonder if mine are different.. gotta try them out next weekend.

Don F

I think its cool that they just have circles and squares on them. Mine appeared to be black ProV1's

James L

I got mine about three months ago.  I think they were the new PRO V1X. Any case, they are fantastic.  The ball is little longer than the PRO V1X that I play.  However, it spin little less with the Short Irons, which I love.  If you hit the ball high, they seem to drop and stop.  If you hit it little lower, it takes a hop then stop in place.  I loved it.  I am waiting for the Titleist to officially release them so I can buy them for next season. 


Congrats on the opportunity to test out the prototype golf ball. The dimple suggests Pro V1 and V1x. Definitely post your feedback and thoughts! I can wait for new balls to hit the market!

Colby R

I tested those out too. I believe they are the Pro V1. They spin more around the green but not off the tee.  They seemed to be longer with my irons.  Put the ball in play for the first time with some friends and shot 69 with it.  Can't wait to put it in the bag
