Up until now my main interaction with golf balls was simply trying to hit one. Now I'm starting to be able to feel the difference between balls. I'm a fairly high handicap golfer who has been playing for 2 years. I went to all Titleist clubs last year and am completely happy with them.
My quandary- In addition to the ProV1 and ProV1X Titleist has released a new DT Trusoft, Velocity, TourSoft and AVX.
Other than buying multiple sleeves of each and doing a massive cross-comparison - how do I figure out which works best for me? I am hoping that a ball fitting event happens near me and I can get a spot in it.
Any other thoughts?
Abby L- the chart of ProV1 vs ProV1X and AVX was great. Is there such a beast for all balls?

I just participated in a Titleist ball fitting in Virginia. I am a low handicap, low speed, low spin, low trajectory golfer. My problem is getting the ball to stop on the green. After hitting a couple of balls on Trackman, the Titleist reps said that I was a good case for the ProV1 X, because it spins more and goes higher than the ProV1. They said I needed more spin to keep the ball in the air and get it to stop on the green. According to Trackman, I was hitting the ball much higher with more spin.
In addition, I hit some 50 yard wedge shots with my current 56 SM5 M grind. I was complaining that the ball rolled too far. On Trackman with a ProV1X, the spin rate with my current wedge was 3000 rpm, which is very low. I should be getting 6000 rpm, twice as much. They said that the grooves were worn out.
They had me try the same club (M grind 56) but new. Guess what the spin rate was? 6000 rpm. Just as they said.

Thanks - good advice. I basically did what you recommended. My pecking order turned out to be TourSoft followed by AVX, followed by ProV1.
I'm sticking with the Tour Soft for this season and see how it plays out.
Thanks for the thoughts.
