    Curious to know how many have gone through a true ball fitting. leaving out your personal bias for pro v1 or pro v1x of any other ball.

    what were the results?

    did you change balls according to the results?

    what surprised you about the ball?

    what surprised you about the process?

    I worked with all 3 urethane balls with my fitter. For me, the higher launch of the X didn't help me, the V ans AVX gave me the same spin numbers on full gap wedge. The AVX was longer on 7 Iron and driver by about 3-5 yards. At the TT-Invitational at Blackwolf Run I had the same spin numbers for the V and AVX, and both were better than the prototype ball they had us hitting 85 yards (my full 48 degree gap wedge distance). With the current AVX and 2019 V, I'm using the AVX. In addition to being LH, there is also a small subset that gets the same spin numbers on full shot wedges with V/AVX that I fit into.

    This year I want to check spin numbers on partial swings. This may tilt the small edge back to the V.
  3. I have been fitted with the Titleist AVX this ball is by far the best ball I have ever played. The way the AVX travels through the wind is remarkable and the drop and stop technology is second to none.
  4. I plan on trying the AVX. Thanks for the info.

    Yes, did a detailed ball fitting during the Team Titleist Short Game Experience last year at Pinehurst. I already was pretty sure I should have been playing the ProV1x instead of the ProV1 but I liked the softer feel of the ProV1. Sure enough, the test data from TrackMan showed I was loosing a lot of distance on full shots and needed the extra spin on short shots. I committed to making the change and over time, get used to the firmer feel of the ProV1x. Glad I did.

    Dale, just curious, what is your swing speed? You have me second guessing now (smile), I recently switched from the VX to the V for the same reason as you (love the soft feel).
  10. Did you gain distance and if so how much and do you have the same controls?
  11. I’m looking for workability and ‘stickiness’ around greens...any suggestions?

    I went to a fitting last year and used my old set of clubs and they recommended I change from Prov1 to Prov1x. Did not make the change because I know I was getting a new set of irons that would give me more distance and spin with my Prov1.

    If you are looking for more workability and “stickiness” around the greens, I would think the ProV1x is the way to go.
  15. Ball Question
    I've been on the fence with the VX vs the V in regard to softness. I tend to have to club down so I don't over hit the club I should be using. I know my ball choice has some influence on distance, what would you recommend?
