TT ... still having trouble with discolouration of my Pro V1x's - beyond a first few holes/first round the stains from grass, sand etc persist - especially around the 'crests' of the concave markings when abraided by short iron play. The ball peforms well but is getting increasingly harder to spot! Can you help? Incidentally NO is the answer to each of the following - are abrasions are caused by hitting trees, flags etc; has there been improvement in colouration with new series; is it not noticed by other players looking for my ball ...there is not a contrast to other brands etc. Sorry, more durable paint?
i havent had any problems with discoloration but I have been experiencing some durability issues. For example, after one hole (no i didnt hit any trees or cart paths or things like that) the cover of the golf ball was peeling. I dont have very sharp grooves so i dont think that is the problem. I didnt have any problems like this with the previous pro v1x ,model so i would love to know why this happens to this particular generation of pro v1x. thanks and sorry i couldnt be much help, just wanted to share my experience.
I used the new Titleist Velocity Performance is great and a awesome putting ball
Only problem it shows wear real quickly scuff marks just from irons without hitting trees or gravel the paint comes off small patches of yellow where the paint to gone. May not effect play but hard to look at so I change balls 3 times in 1 round
Wish it just lost color instead of the paint chipping away leaving bare spots.
No discolouration issues for me as well... just grass stains that can be wiped off. As for durability, the 2011 version gets scraped off easily, especially with well struck wedges. Which I didn't encounter as much with the 2010 version.
I know there were changes from the 2010 to the 2011 version... I am not sure with the 2011 to the 2012 version?
Bert ...you have nailed it except for the color ...I am amazed that millions of balls later TT would not have rectified this ...trying other brands since April ...will keep the world posted ...cheers
