    I think that this ball is an absolute piece of crap compared to the 06 model. Into the wind it is probably the worst premium ball out there for me. Just balloons straight into the sky, can't really hit a low, boring shot with it into a strong breeze. I also shred it a lot more with my wedges, which really doesn't make any sense from what it's supposed to do. I liked the seemed model better.

    I feel the same. The last few X's and the V1* were great into the wind but the nex X spins far too much for me (especialy irons).

    I have had to try other balls and the best for me have been the HX tour and the B333.

    Yo



    I know that this is an X forum, but I played the new ProV1 yesterday and loved it. This new model is definitely longer than the last, and has great feel. I kind of always hated the X, just because I can't spin it, and not that I do much throwing past the whole type thing, but I want it to stop when I need it to. The regular ProV1 sits on a dime when needed and kicks forward when needed. Please forgive me for this comment, but 7/8s of the people who play the X would benifit more from the 1.



    The only thing I was worried about was the trajectory, in the past it would balloon, this one is beautiful, and thats coming from a high-ball hitter.

    I like the "new X" alright I guess.I like it more than the Pro v1 anyway.To me,IMHO,I think the Callaway HX Black ball is the best ball ever made.Thats just me though.If it's wet or the greens are soft I play the HX black.If they are dry/crusty and fast,I play the Black HX56. Taylor Made also has some very good golf balls out also.I found one on the course one day {dont remember the color though} and was real pleased with it.I must say I was very impressed.If Im buying 'em and plopping down $45 a doz, then Im reaching for the Callaway blacks every time.Without hesitation.For "poops and giggles" I do wanna try the Top Flite "Gamer".Im curious.

    Just got fitted to the PROV1X. I don't have a very fast swing speed ... 95 mph. However, we tested out the PROV and the PROV 1X and, as expected, the PROV 1X had less spin... around 2,900 RPMs when hit with a 9.5 degree driver at 95 mph. We saw about a 500-700 RPM increase, sometimes, 1,000 RPM (probably my swing) between the PROV and the PROV 1X. Which would lend itself to a higher, not ballooned, ball flight. However, when the PROV1X hit the ground IT WENT!!! At 2600RPMs the thing took off when it hit the ground. Very kewl!



    If you havent had a chance to spend some time with a launch monitor you should. The ball facts alone and the difference between the various balls is quite amazing. I would say if you are in the 16-11 handicap ... taking the time to fit a ball well definitely give you that boost of confidence to get your handicap lower.

    ProV1x is my gamer now. Tried all the top balls (including the new bridgestone RX) but the "x" is the best. Only swing 94mph with driver. Every time I use this ball I score well. Time and time again I will be using another premium ball and switch back to the "x" and my game improves and I score well.

    The drives are straight & irons shots are pinseekersl. Also feel with putter is fantastic. I done **** around throwing money away on other balls, I will stick with the "x". I haven't tried the prov1 yet and that may be suited to my slower ss.

    I play a full round with the Prov1x's and it's still like new.

    I do enjoy these. The don't spin too much for me- most of the time. Great off the driver, better off irons. Throwing darts with full wedges, but they do come back on me, often when I didn't want them to, but I'm sure that's just me leaning into it. Great ball. Too bad about the price, though.

    seriously? why are you considering these... they are sick. i have been spinning them too much, only downside is a little shorter off the tee, but any soft ball is like that. I much rather have the touch and control.

    nearly 70% gave 5 stars but most post are negative or neutral...someone is afraid to rate what they say!



    I gave it a 2 but I am a big fan of the technology in the Callaway and Bridgestone golf balls. Pro V1's have had little change except for what they had to change from the lawsuit.

    The new Pro V1x's are awesome, all the performance that I have come to expect from Pro V's but they are so much more durable. I played 9 holes with the same Pro V1x last night and the ball looks like new, only like 1 or 2 scuffs.

    They are advertising it as getting 2-3 more yards and it probably does.

    I had a Dicks scorecard rebate dert.that was about to expire.They werent allowing on Titleist or Cally so I picked up a box of Slazenger Black Max {I believe!! Their Eruathane anwho} and they were el perfecto!! Great spin around the green and with the lower mid to wedges,as good of dsiatnce as the prov1 x or Cally tour-i.I havent seen them for sale @ anywhere but Dicks.Maybe they own the name rights to Slazenger now as they sell a lot of "Sliazimoto" balls and apparel.They did say "Made in Japan" on the box so I dont know who makes them.A great golf ball at any price IMO. The Prov1-x and Cally HX-Tour I had been my two previous ball choices.The new "X" feels harder and {to me} dosent generate the spin ;ast years model was.To me, the Pro V balls have "worsened" with each "new,improved" ball.The old proV-Star was a horrible ball.Good call on crapcanning that one.BUT,For the money {and score} you really owe it to yourself to give these "black box" Slazenger a test drive.

    After running out of the old Pro V1 balls I finally had to try the new 2009 Pro V1s and found them to be a harder/heavier feel and not as good for chipping and putting. I felt the new ball is harder to compress and doesn't come off the Driver as well as the old Pro Vs. Its a sad day as I don't find the new version is as good as last years version. It was mentioned to me that I should try the TM Black ball, the Callaway iX and possible the Bridgestone 330s so I asking anyone out there what they think is like the 2008 ProV?

    Have you tried the Top Flite Gamers?

    I just finished playing a round with a guy that has switched from ProV1s to Top Flite Gamers. He swears by them. Have you stuck with the ProV1s?



    I usually play with Callaway HX Hots or NXTs but if the performance is the same I might try the Gamers.

    I agree. I never really played Titleist balls often to begin with, but the older ones felt like they had more spin to them, and the older ones seems to be more properly made according to my playing style. That's just my opinion though.

    I made the mistake of buying a dozen of these before actually playing a sleeve. I liked the previous generation alright, but there's just something not quite right about these. Decent feel and decent distance, but the cover just doesn't sit right with me for some reason. I've cut a couple of these and if I try to hit a big short iron, it's definitely going to be the ball's last hole because the cover gets tore up pretty bad.



    Simply not as impressive as I'd hoped.

    They play very well through a round if you don't hit trees, cart paths, etc, if you do, they get a mark, or soft chew, instead of a hard scuff like a hard ball. If it's price that bothers you, play 1 year old reconditioned, like new, 25 bucks a dozen approximately. That's what I am playing, and love the feel and spin on greens. I admit, I don't like 46 bucks a dozen, and won't pay that.

    yep, prov1x is the best ever.

    when i hit it, it just feels different from any other balls out there.

    just like most people here, i have tried them all and nothing compares to prov1x.

    now, only if they can lower the price by 50% or so =)

    Without question the best ball I have ever found and played. But in my case the old adage of "it isn't the arrow but the archer" is true and so I just don't spend $45/dozen for golf balls. I either buy on line used Pro V balls or play what if find or if in the mood to buy new I buy mid tier balls.

    I have not been golfing for very long, but I was at a local golf shop talking to one of the repair guys and I gold him I was struggling with distance. I was previously using cheap ram golf balls and to be honest I can see why now they are so cheap. The guy suggested to me to try Titleist Pro V1X's than he told me the price. I was hesitant because paying 13.95 for a pack of golf balls vs 50 is a substantial difference. What I did was I went back home and did some research, I ran across http://www.squidoo.com/titleist-golf-balls2 and I was very intrigued about how when they were first released on tour they led the guy to a win. I was very impressed so the next day I went down back to the shop and bought a dozen. The next day at the tee, I first used one of my old ram balls and got about 230-250 and I was like o.k. so I next try'd the Pro V1X golf balls and OMG, I hit the ball almost 270 yards and I was sold on the idea once again. Ever since than I have never stopped using the Pro V1 Golf ball.

    Pro v1x is without doubt a top shelf ball, but like many I cant swallow their price. If golf balls were free I would use these or xv, but as I have to pay I only use xv.

    I played with both the 2012 balls and the 2013 balls today and could not tell the difference distance wise but the the 2013 seemed to offer a bit more spin on those 50 yard pitches.
