AVX Ball

Dennis G

Tried the new AVX optic yellow yesterday. I was surprised by the additional distance. It was chilly here in southern California, 50 degrees when we teed off at 6:30am. The ball was on average about 10 yards further than the NXT Tour S and TP5 that I normally switch back and forth with. The feel off the driver was softer than the Pro V and NXT Tour S, but not as soft as the TP5. The feel off the irons was so soft and smooth, it was as soft as the TP5. The spin off the irons was perfect, not too much but enough to just stop the ball on the green when it hit. Off the driver the roll out was impressive compared to the NXT Tour S and TP5.

While I was impressed by the ball, the price seems a little high. It was priced $2 higher than the Pro V's. I hope the price comes down to a little higher than NXT Tour S. I would pay $39/$40 for them but I can't justify the $48 per dozen.

I really liked the ball and if price is no object it felt really good and performed, but like I mentioned I can't justify $4 per ball.

    I'm reading about the new AVX ball that is just being tested. I would love to try it out here in upstate N.Y. this fall. I have played the Pro v1 and x for many years. I've tried other balls but have found none that I like as much.

    What do you know about this ball in terms of positioning to the current line? Thanks

    Anyone get to try these out? I'd love to hear some feedback!

    Anyone else pumped to try the new AVX golf ball?

    I don't know much of this new ball that titleist is experimenting with but I was wondering if it would be available online? I like the idea of the ball and would love to try some out myself. But I don't live in the three states that they are going to be offering them in. It's another ball I'd love to see on the market! And if anyone can make a ball that performs like they're hoping then it is for sure titleist!

    From what i read online and not sure how true it is, it's only going to be available in 3 states; California, Arizona and Florida. Sounds like a pilot test to see how it goes and the pricing will be close or similar to the ProVs.

    I'm curious as well. Wondering if this will the be color ProV that everyone wanted....

    From what I read these balls sound interesting. I could see a lot of people playing this ball that currently play a prov1 or other soft ball.

    I've learned that this ball is only going to be sold to people in California, Arizona and Florida...I'm guessing it's just a prototype ball for now. Be great to test a sleeve here in a Chicago but I understand why anyone would stay the hell away from the state of Illinois

    If this is what it takes to get a urethane cover ball in amber from Titleist, I'm in. I've never had confidence in NXT-Tour-S, and DT Solo just doesn't hold greens for me. The work on the street is if it only cannibalizes Pro-V, it may not last. I would think that the soccer ball brand is already cannibalizing the market, so might as well keep some of the soft urethane market in house at a similar price point. One way or another I need an amber ball on cloudy days I'm playing as a single. Will have to wait to see if it hits the upper mid-west before I worry about it.

    The AVX ball is a softer premium distance ball priced like the Pro V1's.
    Hitting the retail markets in California, Arizona and Florida this October.
    From what I understand the AVX is a test market ball.

    Cheers,

    Sounds interesting and I'm very curious about it since reading last night, nevertheless, I can't wait for its availability to try.

    GolfSpy sent out an email yesterday with info on the prototype AVX.

    This will definitely be an interesting development in the golf ball market. It sounds like this ball will be competing more with other manufacturers like TM and Cally. I also gather that this will be a ball for those that want a softer feel - compression ball with a urethane cover for better spin and control. I'm not sure though that it will be a good option if it is priced the same as the PRO V/X series.

    Like some of the comments above, I will be switching to the high optic yellow golf ball due to my vision needs. I play the Pro V1 currently and would love to have an even softer ball option. I will try the new DT TruSoft, however, the AVX may be just what I am looking for.
