    Hi Gary,

    Here are some details I provided in another post. Thanks for helping us test. 

    Thanks for all of the posts, questions and comments - they are greatly appreciated. Because there are some repeat questions, I figured I would try to answer everything in this update. So here we go...

    1) I can't find the survey links.

    If your prototype golf balls had black numbers, please use the following link:

    If your prototype golf balls had red numbers, please use the following link:

    Please do not take the survey until after you've had a chance to test the golf balls.  

    2) The survey didn't ask me for my email address and didn't require me to log in.

    There was a misprint in some of the instructions that accompanied the test golf balls that indicated you would need your username and password. This is not the case. The survey should be accessible without any log in requirements.

    3) What golf ball am I testing?

    The golf balls that were sent out as part of the product test panel were part of our ongoing golf ball R&D process and were just test golf balls.  As you can imagine, we are constantly developing prototype golf balls and through the evaluation process we review the feedback we receive to continue along the R&D path. 

    4) How do I get selected? Or why wasn't I selected this time around?

    We make every effort to include as many Team Titleist members as possible in these opportunities, but as you can imagine, we unfortunately are not able to include everyone in every test panel.  

    As for the selection process, all Team Titleist members are considered when we have opportunities like this but the final selection will vary depending on the test panel.  

    Also, the more you participate and the more engaged you are with Team Titleist, from posting in the discussions and adding blog comments to completing your profile, the better your chances are at potentially opening the doors to these Team Titleist opportunities.

    I hope this helps clear things up for everyone. Thanks again!

    Hi Craig,

    Did you try clicking on one of the links I posted above? I just tried both links and was able to reach the survey without any issues. Please keep in mind, you only need to click on the link that corresponds with the test golf balls you received. Keep me posted.

     Hi Mike, thanks for clarifying again.  I am again excited to have participated in the testing and hoping to see if results will be published.  I can only imagine the TEST balls are the new 2013 ProV's.  Can't wait until the release as well as the testing groups findings.


    Thanks agian,

    No problem with test results. Great ball! When will it come onto the market?

    I would like to know exactly which ball I tested.  I assume it was the Pro V1x, but you never know.  I shot a nice little 71 with the test ball on Saturday.  I tested two of the test balls a few weeks ago and took the survey.  They seemed pretty good compared to the current Pro V1x.  However, I had one left in my bag and used it for the full 18 on Saturday.  The ball performed great.  I hit 13 of 13 fairways and 15 of 18 greens.  I had 33 putts, but my speed and lag putting was awesome.

    I need to make sure I was using the new Pro V1x.  :)

    Here in CT it's cold and windy.  So testing had some problems to insure test results were useful.  It seems to ball I tested appeared slightly harder then my Pro/V1 or even a Pro/V1x.  Distance was at least the same or slightly longer.  Spin was good - putting ran excellent.

    Winter has started early - buy in my opinion the ball is really good.

    If this really is the new 2013 ProV then you have converted me. I started with ProV 's a few years ago changed to B'stone and  now after playing the prototype I am back to Titleist ProV. Longer, straighter drives and wedges that stop on a dime. I can right at the flag-stick. I would call this new ProV the Titleist ProV Pro-Am.  A ball for amatuer players with professional characteristics.

    Here in Northwest Ohio we had a fabulous weekend, temps running mid 60's with slight breeze, perfect conditions to test the new Prototype2 balls. I played both Sat and Sun and tested vs my ProV1. I'm a 14 handicap so not a great player but I do some things right.

    First thing I noticed was the wonderful muted sound off the driver. I then hit a new '09 Pro V1 to compare and this ball sounded harsher, I prefer the sound at impact of the Prototype2 ball. Also drive was straight and 5-10 yards longer with test ball.

    With the  short irons,  I hit an 8 iron from 130 yards out and ball hits green and spins side ways to the right. Ditto with the 7 iron. Never had that happen with Pro V1 as it just drops and stops. So not sure if this was me or the ball

    Greens had been plugged and had sand all over the surface. Test ball would not check with the wedges. I then hit some wedge shots with the Pro V1 and this one somewhat least it stopped rolling quicker.

    Over all, I really liked the Prototype2 ball as this was straighter off the driver (less spin) for me as I struggle somewhat with a fade. On the greens.... If I can get it to check just a little bit more (better greens might help) I would be very interested in purchasing a box for better test next spring.

    Last but not least.......THANK YOU Titleist for giving me the chance to participate in this test/surveyof this new ball.

    Love the new prototype ball.  I was playing last Saturday with my dad and his friends and using the new ball had my second career hole in one.  179 yards with a 5 iron.  Posted a 75 for the day...and of course lost money to the old guys!

    Keep up the good work!

    I tested some balls for Titleist a couple of years ago and left detailed feedback.  I wasn't chosen this time around.

    My friend was, however, and I did get to play the new prototype ball.  I liked it very much!

    Plenty of distance,  enough spin to stop irons but somehow side-spin from hooks/slices didn't seems to be very punitive. 

    Great putting feel and roll.  Hope this ball gets put into production!

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for the opportunity to provide feedback with some of Titleist new R&D ideas. Keep up the good work!
