    I tried the AVX today and loved most things about it. The low trajectory is great and it really straightened out my shot shapes. I love the amount of spin I get into the greens on full shots, ProV always seemed to spin back a little too much. The problem I had was I don’t seem to get the green side wedge spin that I get with ProV. most of my chips were running out more than I’m used to. The AVX seemed to completely ignore the wind and it was very enjoyable. Only other small thing was ball felt a little clickier off the putter. So the question is about any suggestions you guys might have for a ball that acts like AVX on full shots but works like a ProV on chips and putts.

  2. Trey,
    Unless you want to go "Off-Piste" and look at non-Titleist stuff, you may find you're searching for a unicorn!
    We are, as they say, where we are. Which characteristics are most important to you at this point? The choice is yours...
    Straight, low flight with a click or higher flight, potentially less straight but with a sweet putting sound.
    If it's the former, you seem destined for time on the practice ground for some chipping/pitching drills!
    The other way out of your dilemma would seem to be a professional, Titleist, ball fitting - details available on this site.

    Thanks JT. Since my original post I have played my last few rounds with AVX and new ProV, both are really good. I put some time in on the chipping green and am more comfortable with the AVX than I was. My local course greens also happened to be running much faster than normal that first day I played the AVX so as greens have slowed I am getting the results I am looking for. I love the low flight on the AVX and how it cuts through the wind and think I have found my new ball.

    Try a sleeve of Tour Soft balls........I found the same issues with the AVX as most of us did when we compared it to the Prov1.....we can't have everything.....I am staying with the Prov1 and sacrifice that extra five yards......low spin and height equals distance....

    Hey Trey
    I love the AVX as well, found the ball characteristics fit my slower swing style with positive results on distance and feel.

    I also found the putts were hot with a putter with an insert-specifically a non-metal insert.

    A metal insert like a Scotty Cameron should help resolve that issue. What putter did you use with your putts?
