    Compression was an issue back in the wound ball days. Every ball compresses and every player hits different shots at different speeds, everything from a full out driver to a half-wedge pitch shot. You really need to look at what characteristics you need in a ball and choose based on that. AVX is a soft feeling ball but also a very low spin ball that has a lower overall trajectory. If you struggle with hitting it high enough or keeping shots on the green, you might be better off with a ball like ProV1x. You will find golfers playing every model ball with significantly different swing speeds. Get a sleeve and try them out and see if they perform the way you want them to, based on your own game. Good luck and enjoy.

    While other brands attach compression numbers to swing speeds, Titleist reminds us that every ball has to perform at any club speed - the doesn’t care if the driver whacks it at 123 mph or a wedge at 72 mph.

    AVX is the lowest compression - softest feel urethane ball from Titleist. But my swing speed tops out at 85 mph and the X gives me the potential to score on approach shots with a steeper descent angle. For me, I lose distance with the AVX and not getting enough launch. That’s why Titleist offers 7 lines.

    It is true that higher swing speeds need a certain amount of compression. Too low will over compress and distort flight. Players with speeds under 90 mph driver speeds won’t be limited against the softest, lowest compression balls.
