Test Balls

Billy W

I tested a sleeve of Titletist balls in September-October of 2013 and absolutely loved them!! There was supposed to be a follow-up email with a link to give my impression but it never came.  I can say that these are the best Titleists that I have ever played and if I ever find out what they were I will be purchasing them as soon as they hit the stores.  Does anyone know what these test balls were and when I can start looking for them?

    Billy, I had the same experience. I received the sleeve of balls and never got the email survey. However, I loved the golf balls. Hit them straight and long. eagled a par five on my home course that I struggle to birdie every season. I would love to know what ball they sent me. Today they announced four new versions of existing Titleist balls. Hard to tell from the descriptions which one I got but I am leaning toward the new Velocity. Would be great if they disclosed to the Test ball recipients what we tested!

    I also played the test balls I received and I loved the ball. Long with great control and feel! How do we find out if the ball is being marketed!

    Same for me.  I received a sleeve in the fall of 2012.  Great balls but never knew where to send my feedback to.

    I tested in 2013 also and loved them. They reacted like ProV's on short shots but maybe more durable. I did the survey but don't know which ball they were suppose to replace. NXT's are new for 2014, maybe it's one of them. Please Titleist let me know what ball I tested. Thanks Randy.

    I can tell you all from past testing experience that Titleist will not reveal what line of ball you tested. They may or may not have been the balls recently released. They might even be a ball that will never be released. Only Titleist knows for sure.

    I am just glad we all have a chance to be part of the process. Now if I can just get Scotty to send some "test" putters ;)

    I see what you mean. The test balls might have been altered before launching their new products. I just have to enjoy them.

    I had two sleeves of 'test' balls that I tried out today.  Very similar in feel and length that I achieve with ProV1s but I was achieving more backspin than I have ever managed before on my approach shots and can only assume the balls were part of the improvement.

    The general feel was very nice although rather unforgiving if mishit.

    I will be comparing them once again to the ProV1s but if I am able to get the backspin I was today, I would happily go out and buy a box!

    this was the second time I got test balls, answered a number of questions, the first time but not the second, I am guessing they were 2013 pro v1s

    I too love the golf ball and was hopping to give my feedback, so lets all ask titleist  to put up a website the next to they want us to test there new golf balls.

    Longest & straightest ball than everything else, soft on short game, rolled true on putting.  Will be playing them instead of the yellow Solos I got last year = disappointed with didn't maintain velocity and lost distance.

    Per Above, is this super long ball available?

    All I've ever played is "T". There is no substitute. 

    i just wish the X had more spin or the  V was a little harder. Love the spin of the V but the solidness of the X. 

    we'll get there. Someone will figure it out. Until the, just let it fly.

    I also received a sleeve of balls and loved them, hit them straighter and could stop on greens better. Also would love to know what I was hitting.
