So had a Titleist ball fitting this past Friday at my club here in Texas (Lantana Golf Club in DFW area). Went in there thinking I had the answer to what I'd like (ProV1) but after looking after some TrackMan data the AVX was spinning less and traveling farther so I took a few samples and tried it. Shot 73 with it but noticed I didn't like the feel and "click" sound it made off of the putter. Seemed hard to control distance with it. After noticing that I switched back to ProV1 and immediately felt better.
Anyone else's experience with the AVX and clunkiness off the putter? BTW the fitting guys were awesome!! Thx Luke for your kind words and recommendations!!

I bought a sleeve of the AVX to try based on comments in these forums and the opinion of the fellow at the sporting goods store who said it’s his ball of choice now. I trust the guy, but should have known my game well enough to know that it’s not the ball for me. I have enough trouble getting the ball in the air and the AVX just exasperated the problem. I will say that it actually seemed less “clicky” and extremely soft off the putter for me. In fact it was so soft off the face it made me consider the pro V1x. So I bought a sleeve of those to try. I played the V1x in cold weather this weekend and shot my lowest score ever. However, due to the cold weather, I’m still undecided. But switching from the Pro V1 to the AVX was not an improvement for me simply based on my ball flight. The V1 to V1x debate is still to be settled. I will say I think I like the firmer feel of the V1x off the putter face, but will have to see how it performs off the longer clubs once I play in some warmer (over 55 degrees) weather. I can say without a doubt though, the Pro V1 is hard to beat.
Good luck with your journey and hit ‘em straight.

With all due respect, I would like to recommend that when submitting an article that you look over the articles that have already been submitted and add to those articles regarding the same subject. There is a lot of interesting information regarding the AVX ball comparing it to the Prov1, Prov1x and other Titleist balls already posted under Golf Balls.
All you have to do is scroll thru the history and you will find the topic as close back as March and April. It is awesome to share information but let's make a community effort to keep the topics continuing and not redundant. I feel most will agree. =)
