The golf ball fitting process made sense and I know what I am doing wrong. However, I am really confused about the different golf balls. I was playing the 2012 Pro V1 prior to the fitter recommending me for the NXT Tour S and Pro V1x. I have read everything on the website and I don't understand why the NXT Tour S was the primary ball he recommended when the Pro V1 and Pro V1x offer the "best performance." I thought all the other golf ball models were for preference only. He said I hit my driver like a tour player but I was "scooping" with my wedges (using gravity to stop the ball instead of spin). I really need to work on my short game haha. He also mentioned that the Pro V1x launches a degree higher in the air.
Unfortunately, the golf club fitting was a waste of time. This fitter (not the same as the golf ball fitting) was not ready at my appointment time, was not very knowledgeable, didn't even watch me, and was packing up to go the entire time. It was a very disappointing experience.
If anybody has information on the science behind each of the golf balls and the purpose of playing a specific model, please post. I don't want this thread to turn into people posting what ball they play. Thanks
Thank you for the ball fitting! I do understand what you have posted. I typically do not have an issue with hitting the fairway. As a result, I have been playing Pro V1s in order to have more spin (than the Pro V1x) to stop the ball on greens. Do you think the Pro V1x launching higher will still be more beneficial than Pro V1s if I am hitting fairways? I think the only reason I am confused is that I am trying to think of why somebody would play Pro V1 if Pro V1x is more forgiving with miss-hits yet still has stopping power. If NXT Tour S has even lower spin than Pro V1x, does that mean Velocity has the lowest spin (helping miss-hits the most) of all six current models?
I have been working on my short game and I like the Pro V1x better than the NXT Tour S. I appreciate all your help!
After testing the Pro V1x around the green and hearing your thoughts, you have convinced me to give it a try.
Just out of curiosity, what conditions would happen for you to recommend the Pro V1 for a player?
You'd be surprised on how well the V1x stops on the dime for the lower spinning ball. Even on my half wedge shots, once it hits the green it would stop within 2 bounces.
