WHAT GOLF BALL DO YOU PLAY?

The Pro V1 is a superior golf ball. I am 74 with a 8 handicap at Oakcreek C.C., in Sedona Az. I have tried other balls and there is no comparison. Also play AP,s

Hey, Nate! I used to play the old NXT and then played the new ProV1. The new ProV's are outstanding! They fly off the driver and are great around the greens. But, recently, I have been playing the new Titleist Velocity and have found them to be even better for my game than the ProV's and are less expensive! Again, great ball trajectory and distance with excellent control on short shots. I'm hooked! It would be worth your while to give them a try...you won't be disappointed.
I play most Pro V1x. Every now and again, I use the Pro V1 if I have some in the bag. I have both of them in the bag and it really depends on what I have the feeling for that day.

I have a bone to pick with Titleist     Sometimes I think companies  Over Think  about changes

I loved the NXT golf ball   for me it was the best   solid performing ball made    bar  none

I was on the testing team  in Texas   and liked the new models tested   but the NXT Tour  or NXT S   isn't the old NXT

In my opinion  should have  left the NXT as it was       Titleist didn't change the ProV   shouldn't have changed the NXT

Just 1 player's  thoughts....

Hi Bert,

Thanks for the post and feedback. We always appreciate hearing the thoughts of our Team Titleist members. As you can imagine, one of our primary goals is to continuously improve all of our products to ensure we are always delivering the very best performing equipment.  

Our R&D team has really done amazing job with the entire family of new Titleist golf balls. By introducing some new aerodynamics packages and preference options within NXT Tour and NXT Tour S, along with the all new Velocity, we are confident that there is a ball that will deliver the performance and preference options that fit your game and ultimately help you shoot lower scores.

One quick clarification on your comment around the Pro V1, the current generation does feature some new enhancements. Here are some details from our Golf Ball R&D team:

With the new Pro V1 we’re incorporating two new features in 2011. The first enhancement we’ve made is to the core technology. It’s an innovative, new ZG process core technology that allows us to produce the most uniform core we’ve ever made. This process also enables us to take our already high quality standards to the next level when it comes to core-to-core uniformity. The new Pro V1 also has an increase in spin compared to the prior generation. We’ve also changed the dimple design to a spherically tiled 352 tetrahedral dimple design which results in a penetrating and more consistent flight.

Thanks again for the input and feel free to shoot me a PM if you have any questions or want to chat more about golf ball selection.

Cheers!

I'm a luck golfer! Last week Titleist sent me 4  NXT Golf Balls to try out. Also included in the box from Titleist was a survey form to complete. Team Titleist, unfortunately, someone in your marketing department put an invalid link to the survey in the box. It will be hard to get feedback since the survey link does not work. Now, the NXT Tour ball-its the ball for me. I've been experimenting during the "off season" with a lot of other brands. One brand in particular that I will not mention, stayed in my bag for 3 months. It was a two piece ball that was marketed as a "distance ball" by the maker. I'm going back to the NXT Tour-(went back yesterday)..It is clearly the ball for me. I dont have enough club head speed to take advantage of the benefits of the ProV1 for distance, so the NXT gets my vote in all three categories-Distance, Feel and Cost. It works for me.

NOT VERY TECHNICAL BUT HERE GOES. I'M 74 WITH A 12 HDCP. I HAVE A SWING SPEED OF ABOUT 80.ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPT I SHOULD BE HITTING THE SOLO.I'VE TRIED ALL OF THE TITLEIST BALLS AND ALWAYS RETURN TO THE SAME PLACE.I USED PROV1X IN WARM WEATGER AND PROV1 IN COOL WEATHER.MY REASON IS THAT'S WHAT FEELS BEST WHEN I PLAY. THE VELOCITY FLYS VERY WELL BUT IN THE SHORT GAME IT JUST DOESN'T FEEL RIGHT.

I'll try the new Velocity  this weekend    Hope it plays as well as the NXT    time  and  strokes    will tell

I just tried the new NXT Tour and the Tour S, and I found the Tour S to be the ball that feels the best to my game.  Long off the tee and good around the green,  The NXT Tour felt a little hard and I didn't have the length I did with the Tour S.  I also had a chance to try the New Velocity and I was surprised as I was outdriving my regular partner (same age as me, 75) and my son who is twenty plus years younger than I with 15 lower handicap.  It will be the Velocity or the Tour S for me depending on the weather.

 

 

 I play the prov1X I like the way the ball preforms and I used to play the NXT tour but I found they didn't hold up as well as the Prov1x

I'm with Dennis on this.  I play NXT Tours because I don't feel I can utilize all the capabilities of a tour ball.  It is a cost benefit thing with me.   I'm not shy about picking up year old technology at close out prices either.  I stumbled upon a great deal on another brand at Dick's at the end of last year and stocked up.

It is somewhat ironic because I've played Titleist, almost exclusively,  for over 30 years.  Back then the gap in performance between brands was substantial. I paid for Titleist at that time even though it took more of my "milk" money to do so.  Nowadays, when price isn't as big a factor to me,  that performance variance has narrowed to a point where there are 4-5 manufactures of  excellent products.  It makes it fun to have choices.  Lots of choices.

I like the tier of balls just below the ProV1 and ProV1x - the NXT Tour and Tour S balls are a great compromise for me of performance, cost and - truth be told - ego.  The feel of the ProV's is great, I just hate occasionally losing one.

I play a Q Star. What is the best golf ball for someone like a Corey Pavin who wants to "work the ball"?

Hi, I'm a moderate swing speed player who was playing srixon trispeed. I've just tried the NXT Tour S.

This is a seriously good ball that  is long off the tee and spins well round the green with a lovely soft feel off my putter.

Definitely now my No 1  ball of choice most days..

Occasionally I play the Callaway Hex Chrome as I've found it the best ball for me in very windy conditions.

Well... Here is my take what I use.

I play the ProV 1X. I live in the Seattle and as you all know... It rains allot here. ;-) We are also at sea level. The X does tend to carry further the the PV1. Being we have softer green and almost all are Poa, the ball holds well with almost all shots. As are TT brothers, lets say down south or the south west have dryer and harder surfaces, they may have issues with the X releasing a bit more. When I travel to those areas, I do tend to play the PV1 more.

  That being said... I think the ball you choose should be based somewhat on your angle of attack through the ball. Spin or less spin can be controlled in part, by your angle. As a scratch golfer and taller, my angle is steeper by mechanics then lets say, someone who has a shallower  swing plane. Just my opinion of course.

But, I can tell you this. I'll play any ball in the world..... As long as it has Titleist stamped on.
