  1. I'm guessing it's going to be cold and wet this winter in the UK.

    What ball do you like to game through the winter?

    Do you carry on with the same or do you go softer with more distance?

    You don't need stopping power when it's wet so a high spinning ball isn't needed.

    The TruFeel ball seems to be a great ball for the winter it goes further and feels great off every club for me.

    What you gaming?

    Personal preference. Some people prefer to use the same ball year round, while others prefer to swap out to something different. There is no wrong answer.

    Last year, Rick V. posted this great post about golf balls and cold weather. It's a good read.

  5. I play year around in all conditions. I wont play my normal ProV1 below 55-60 degrees as I feel I dont get all the ball has to offer. I go with a softer ball as it will still have feel to it.
    Living in a wet area Im not playing a $4 golf ball only to lose them to plugging or lawn grass when wet and soggy.

    A ProV1 seems to get better the hotter it gets.

    AVX performs better for me than any ball I've ever played in winter. I use Pro Vs and AVX all year, but tend to play AVX more in the winter. Better distance. Cuts through the wind. Lower ball flight. Runs out further.
  7. I like to play the pro v1x year round. My mindset is to eliminate as many variables as possible and playing the same ball throughout the year helps in that.
  8. Tested these side by side today. The lower flight of the avx was brilliant in the awful UK weather.

    With the wet greens it was impossible to compare spin as both balls stopped dead.

    The toursoft is a long ball and on the hole edged the avx on distance for me. This could be because of the softer compression and maybe suited my swing speed better not sure.

  9. I personally like to keep my ball the same and stick with the Pro v1 so I can have consistent practice and flight. It also helps to use the same ball so I don’t have to adjust to a different going into the summer.

    Velocity in the winter particularly is its soft, otherwise I’ll carry on using Pro V1X

    If I get a morning when it's 50's to 60's, i'll go with the TruFeel.

    I play the ProV1 year round in all conditions and temperatures. Make adjustments to yardages and trajectory based on the various conditions.

    Prov1. Year round, in all conditions. Based on personal preference, proven performance and Titleist recommendation.

    I still have some Titleist DT TruSoft balls that I’m using this winter. When those run out, I’ll go to the new TruFeel balls.
    In the summer, I play Pro V1x.
