Test Ball

I received a sleeve of yellow titleist and I don't have a ball in my profile that I know of. No numbers on the ball, just yellow, says titleist and test.

I also received a sleeve and I hope they come out. I was very impressed and would use them for sure. I checked against Prov.dt and nxt and dimple pattern was different.

I really liked what I saw/felt! Had a very nice jump to to it, and seemed to have low spin but nice control around green.

I have been using staff duo for the lower spin and still good pop but this felt as good on the green, seemed to stop better but was very low spin off the tee.

I have always fought a slice, and usually don't get a lot of spin from irons.  I did some drills around the green trying to get spin, as well as my regular chipping and putting. 

It's tough to judge because you never know how consistent your shots/swings are but:

It stopped quicker greenside. It rolled very smooth and seemed to jump off the putter..it took me awhile to adjust

I played 18 holes with 2 balls on each hole and it was usually longer and straighter. I walked off my approaches from landing mark to ball and it stopped on longer approaches about 2 yards sooner (maybe a touch more), and on shorter ones about 2 to 3 feet. Again I usually don't get a lot of spin on approaches. 

I had actually moved away from Titleist balls just play lower spin balls. I like the e6 and duo, but this is a ball I would certainly look at and probably play. I was really pleased with it.

Plan on at least another practice session and round with it before I have to review it. 

I received a sleeve of test balls last week. I have NXT in my profile.-- I've played two rounds with them. My distance was improved so much that my playing partners are accusing me of using an illegal ball! The test balls are black number 1, and the dimple pattern looks like the Velocity ball.  Whatever they are I want to order some more. Fairly soft feel , good ball flight and action.  How do I find out what they are and where I can get more.

Received some as well.  Played 9 on Saturday with one and compared to my ProV1x it was good off the tee but awfully hard around the greens.  Prefer the softer Prov1x chipping and putting. 

That said I had some shots 150 yds and in that stopped within 3 feet of where they first hit the green.  Wonder if it's a ProV1x with a harder outer for durability they are testing?  hmmmm I'd gladly sacrifice some durability to have a softer ball to putt with!!

well after testing driving chipping/pitching  and putting in 30s degree day and doing bounce test i tested in 70s driving chipping/ pitching and putting the red number ball added 15 to 20 yards after bounce and roll also nice spin on greens when pitching from 80 to 150 yards out...... so now ready start playing

made my first hole in one today it was 1 of the test ball i played 9 with 1 ball and 9 with pro v1x the red number ball did seem feel softer and go longer

i shot 82 today all time best

front 9 test ball back 9 pro v1x 1 hole in one front 9 that test ball is done it never be used again its got home on fire place mantel

Hey Clayton, congratulations on your Ace and your lowest round ever. Great to hear !

I received a sleeve last week. After playing three holes my reaction was " Is this ball legal?". I want to know if and when it will be available. I've playng bstone E6s and cally Hex Chromes . I believe the Titleist test balls I received outperforms the socks off of both.

I recently received a sleeve. I haven't compared dimples, but the balls are white with the word "test" in the alignment marking. Notification was to expect an email with a survey link in two weeks, but I won't have been able to play in that time frame (Minnesota resident), so I hope I can respond after next week's trip to Florida.

A few years ago I got two sleeves with no markings other than a hollow blue circle on one, and a solid blue circle on the other. The difference I could tell is that the hollow blue circle balls were softer. Or so my easily misled mind told me. Oh, and the solid circle balls went 0.25% farther. It was like a miracle.

I just got some with the red number as well. Living in Ohio, was lucky enough to have a few days warm enough. They respond a lot like NXT Tour or Velocity with a little different feel. I really like them.

I received a sleeve on Sat. 10/26 - Black # with Test stamped on one side.  I don't remember what ball I had listed in my profile but, since this Spring I've been using the  2013 version of the bstone E-6 & E-5 balls. 

So far I've done a putting & chipping test, using the E-5, E-6 & the 'Test' ball and have played one round. The 'Test' ball felt as soft as the E-6 off of the putter & wedges but had more spin when chipping. Overall feel was better then the E-5 ball. On the course I liked the overall performance of the 'Test' ball, over the E-5 but thought the E-6 was very similar.

On the day I received the sleeve of test balls, I had ordered 2 dozen of the NXT Tour S balls. I just received those in the mail the other day. So, I need to do further testing, comparing the "Test" ball to the NXT Tour S ball, 

Thanks to Team Titleist for including me in their Beta testing. 

I got mine last week, I can tell mine are not ProV's, look more like NXT's.  I play'd with them yesterday, pretty consistant ball flight, and seemed to climb a bit higer than my usual ball, and certainly sat quickly and softly too...overall, I'd buy the darn'd things if I knew what they were...drives were about average, nothing more or less, most of the difference I saw was in the mid irons and wedges...60 degree had them up and down with slightly better performance than I'm used to, but then I may have just had a good day, so I'll try them again on Sunday...Players like me (low to mid 90's) can't really judge a ball on one round...

I got my sleeve in the mail the other day and immediately took them out to the course...LOVED THEM.  The feel was so much better and from 100 yards and in - WOW, much better control around the greens and much softer feel.  I have Velocity in my profile but I dont think the test balls I got are anything close to velocity but I love them and would switch in a heartbeat!

I recently had to update my profile with a new email address and was hoping I could also get the email request for feedback resent to me. 

Thanks so much for the opportunity to test!
