Why do you play the Pro V1 or Pro V1x?

Hey Team Titleist, 

Some of us were recently talking about why we play the Pro V1 or Pro V1x. I play the Pro V1x because I am a high spin player and the Pro V1x gives me less spin into the greens, resulting in more control. 

We want to know which ball each of you play and why! 

Hopefully all of you will get to tee it up this weekend with your favorite ball.

Talk soon,

Bubba


Bubba, most often I will play the 1x, but if I don't have those handy I will play the 1.
I am an equal opportunity ProV player.

Great post, Bubba.

I'm a PRO V1 for the look and feel.

I'm old school.  Back in the day, Black on Black Titleist 100 was the best ball used by the pros.

It was the holy grail of golf balls.

Black on Black PROV1 for me.  (But I'll never turn down any Titleist ball!)

You can never have enough new Titleist golf balls.

Thanks again!

Hi Bubba

I play the ProV1

It feels softer when hitting an Iron plus I don't have the speed to lift the X model to get the proper ball flight. Also, the ProV1 doesn't scuff as much as the X.

Too much driver spin with the Pro V1 so I always use the X now. 

Prov 1x here. Play it for the reliability . Always reacts the same. No surprises ..

I've used A Pro V1 since they were launched (pardon the pun ) I play Links golf in NE Scotland so a low draw is my natural swing path. I need a higher spin rate for better control. I also think the Pro V1 rolls off my (scotty) putter better. I've used Titleist for close to 30 years since the first Tour Balata 100 to my personal favourite the Tour Prestige. Having experimented with various balls over the years I have always , without fail , returned to titleist.

Haven't really tried the Pro-V1 as the ball fitting on line suggested the 1x as my primary.  I'm in position more often to hit GIRs than I ever have been with balls designed to boom at my driver speed.  It's partly with distance after the carry that is helping get in position.  I could try other balls, but I'm happy with the results now.  Along with some shaft adjustments, I'm consistently gaining 10-20 yards over last year when I would still sneak in some of my older non-Titleist stock..

I recently switched from the Pro V1 to the 1x because I went through a titleist ball fitting and realized I, too, am a high spin player. Since making the switch I've picked up a few yards distance without losing the short game spin I got with the Pro V1. If you haven't gone through a ball fitting, I highly recommend it. You learn a lot about what the golf ball is doing when you hit it and using track man is pretty cool too.

I have been playing PRO V's for the last 4 years and I am VERY satisfied.  I lean toward the PRO V1x because it helps give me optimal launch while still giving me great feel around the green. Also, when the greens around here are soft it seems to spin a little less (which is nice since a couple par 3 here you can back up into the water).  Other balls have simular distance, but at a loss of short game feel.  The older Pro V's were awesome for feel and very good distance, yet the cover was easily roughed up with my 2009 version Vokey's.  The newProV  versions seem to be more durable and still have good feel and spin.

I got a sleeve prototype balls with a Black Circle and a sleeve with a Black Square on them this winter and have been testing them.  Seem a little harder sound of the club face, yet the characteristics around green is still very good.  It was windy when I tried them out and I noticed a very piercing ball flight and very good distance.  Didn't notice much difference between the two though.

Thanks,

I prefer the Pro V1, yes it provides a little more spin, but I find that helps me focus more on my drive so I can avoid my slice (tho I was told it was called a power fade this weekend).  I won't turn down a Pro V1x tho, I find it works about as well around the green for me, but now that I am actually hitting my approach onto the green, I definitely prefer the Pro V1.

Hey Bubba,

    I play the ProV1x for the extra distance it give me off the tee, aswell as the wonderful control around the greens. Gotta love those balls!

I play the Pro V1 because I found it to be the most consistent ball around and on the green. It's hard enough to gauge each course's greens speed, so I need a ball that putts consistently to adapt to each course. My Pro V1 ball flight and my distance is superior to any other ball I've tried. That's why I play "Titleist" Joe T, Birdie Boy.

How would the spin change off the driver for a player with the D2 vs. D3 models? any difference with these balls?? Just curious...

Hi Chris, 

Thanks for the question.

The 913D2 and D3 heads differ slightly with regards to spin. The D2 produces a slightly higher spin rate Vs. the D3 due to its shallower head. 

Hope this helps.
