    If they’re pricing these at the same level of Pro V1 and V1x then Titleist just doesn’t get it. I know I don’t sit into their shareholder meeting and get first hand looks at their books but it seems that all these companies are offering an equal or better ball for fraction of the cost of their top end balls and that’s what’s stealing their share of the pie. If they want to stop losing their hold of the market they better start playing the game.

    I just picked up some Srixon Q Star Tours, and unless these are the same price, I won't buy them.

    When someone started a thread about this a few weeks ago, I was intrigued. If the price is anything over $35, I am no longer interested. I won't pay $48/doz for a ball unless it gets me 290+ off the tee and feels soft off the irons and putter

    They are trying to make a "go straight" version of the ProV1. Soft and good around the greens, but built for length and I bet it has a much higher MOI than the V1.



    It will probably be a much better ball for 95% of us than the ProV1, but given the identical price, and availability of other similar balls (E5 for example) I wonder if it will stick at all.



    I won't buy it simply because it costs more than the Chrome Soft, and I don't see how it could possibly do any more.

    No... that isn't urethane. This may be extremely similar, but with a higher price and a urethane cover.

    The AVX won't be as expensive as the ProV1 once they are released nationwide in February. Shhhh... Don't tell anyone that you heard it from me.
  • cane700cane700 Posts: 2,008 ✭✭
    Lots of similar balls in this category at much lower price points. So I certainly hope they price this accordingly. I'm a Titleist guy and I'm willing to pay more for absurd levels of greenside spin with the prov1x. I wont pay extra for a Titleist version of the Project A.

    Correct, but it is similar enough in concept to make me think of it. I am not sure how well this will fair. It does not really interest me that much.

    Titleist will keep losing ground little by little on golf balls till they lower there price on prov1 prov1x. This makes no sense why the same price as prov1's? If I'm spending $45 on a dozen balls I'm not trying something new.

    I'm pretty sure it will sale once you hit the AVX. It's the best ball I have ever hit. It is very straight and very long. I work for Titleist. I got my hands a couple balls to test.
  • Corey H.Corey H. Members Posts: 12
    @ Cane700 this ball is way better then a Project A. Great spin and check around the greens. Soft feel off the tee and irons.

    How do you get marketshare back when you're offering another ball at your highest price? Desperation doesn't look good on you, Titleist




    Arrogance. Just shows you how out of touch they are. Titlesit is getting SMOKED in clubs sales and are down AGAIN in balls sales last quarter.

    I don't know, I don't see anything about golf getting into cheaper. Equipment is getting more expensive, rounds are more expensive... this is not going to change that. They introduce it at that price because they know that a good percentage will buy based on the claim of more distance and more spin. Blah blah blah.

    I wasn't going for the claims of more distance and more spin but once you mention "blah blah blah", I'm sold!

  • ArtMBgolfArtMBgolf Members Posts: 366 ✭✭
    It's possible that the writer is comparing the List price of AVX with the street price of the Pro V1.

    If that is correct, then AVX could have a street price of $39.99.



    It makes no sense to cost the same as Pro V1. If they think that will sell, they may as well name it the Pro V1 Soft or Pro V1 AVX.



    It's nice to see the yellow version. A yellow Pro V1 would likely outsell AVX.

    The Velocity is their distance niche ball. Not sure what group Titleist is going after with this.At that price, probably going to end up being in the discount group by 2018.

    They say it will be priced the same as the ProV line. If they were $30 a dozen I'd give it a go. For now my Snell MTB at around $26 a dozen (buy 5 get 1 free) are doing the job just fine!

    Besides the yellow ball, I guess I don't understand the need for this if it is the same price as the Pro V1.
