Pro V1's worth

I've never played the Pro v1 but ive heard alot about it. The only thing that discourages me from buying it I dont know why i have to pay $48 for a dozen golf balls.  It just doesn't feel right to shank $4 into the trees.  I want to buy a titalist ball but dont want to sacrifice ability for price.   What makes the Pro V1 better than the NXT tour other than $20.  By the way im a 10 Handicap and play for my high school, Can drive my discout ball 310 in the fairway, and hit 5/9 greens on average.
