So I've played the last three rounds with the new V's (finally lost my old ones) and I am impressed. They do last longer, but for me, they're straighter without losing spin/workability. I don't know how the mad scientists did it, but well done. I hit a couple shots with my old V's next to the new ones today and they were better off the tee and with long irons, plus they spun just as good as my old V's around the greens. I'm not a fan of the aim marker, but I'll settle for superior performance any day. Keep up the good work.
