Hi Guys, I have seen some stuff on here about how the Titleist Prestige (Japan only???) is the same thing as the AVX. Is that actually a true statement? Is the AVX the same exact ball just branded differently?

    I don’t think so. The prestige I played were three piece surlyn. Unless they’re different versions of that ball.

    Very similar if not the same ball. Same specs as the AVX. Same dimple type/design. 3 piece urethane that was available in yellow same as the AVX. The Titleist Japan website does not list the AVX ball. Hmm. The internal cores of the AVX/Prestige are different colors that however doesn't mean they aren't the same. Give them both a try and compare them for yourself. Especially since the Prestige can be had for $20/dozen.

    There have been mutiple versions of the Prestige. The current version has the exact urethane cover as the AVX.

    Yes, I believe the newer version(s) of the Prestige are basically identical. Look closely at the description, as the new Prestige (and the version available right before the AVX release) should have the same cover, construction and dimple pattern. FWIW, I bought some Prestige that were pretty inexpensive that play identical to AVX, save for an interesting “pearl” type finish and big Titleist logo.

    Thanks guys, did end up ordering a dozen of the pearl from Morton golf. Figured for that price it would make sense to give them a try! May get a sleeve or two of the AVX as well and compare side by side as I haven’t played the AVX yet. Will report back with some results when I have them.

    Lets us know what you think after you use them. When I was in MB i saw them in like clear egg crates at the PGASS there. That logo just looks fishy to me. Kinda like the pearl paint.

    If these are comparable to AVX that price is an absolute steal.
