All bets are off, went back to the Pro V1x this week and shot 69 today. Chipped in on the 1st hole from the 2nd cut off the green. I don't think I could have spun any ball better than the shot I made, 2 skips and the ball went from about 10 yards off the green. I only took 27 putts for the round. Until it gets wet in the fall, I am back to the Pro V.
I grabbed a sleeve of optic yellow DTs for a round in hazy afternoon weather, on a course that has a tendency to be windy. I did not see much distance advantage off my driver compared to the Pro V1x. And maybe it was the hard green, but I hit a par 3 green dead in the middle using a 7 iron and it looked like it bounced up quite a bit and rolled right off the back of the front-to-back sloped green, well into the rough.
Chipping green-side was fine, as I have a tendency these days to not play a lot of backspin on those shots. My last shot of the day was 25 yard up and down to save par, so I was happy.
As much as I like the squishy feel of the ball, I need something that generates more spin on mid range approach shots.
I tend to swap out my 1Xs in the late fall and early spring for the same reason (wet conditions on fairways & greens). I usually go with the SOLO because I get good carry off my woods and irons and they spin back very little on soft greens. They also putt well on the softer greens. Once the ground starts to dry out I switch back because the SOLOs bounce like a super ball off of hard greens.
As long as it's a Titleist no matter which model it is still the #1 ball in golf
