    Yep. Grass is always greener. I’m guilty myself but I believe the benefits of being consistent and really becoming confident and comfortable with one ball far outway any yardage or spin you may pick up or drop by constantly switching to others, chasing the unicorn.

    I know an anecdote of one isolated incident is meaningless. But this weekend I hit about a 30-yard pitch shot over a bunker with my SW and it came off the club perfectly. But honest to goodness, the instant I looked up and saw the ball I had a vivid image of it landed in the fringe a couple feet short of the green, taking a soft hop and coming up 10 feet short of the hole. I meant to hit it a couple yards farther so it would roll out a bit rather than being killed in the fringe.

    Sure enough, it landed inches short of the green, took that soft hop and I ended up with about a 12-footer for par. That sort of thing happens all the time when I'm playing Pro V1x. It's just from hundreds and hundreds of rounds played with the same ball model.

    The OP says this is low launch / low spin, but according to what I've read it's higher launch & lower spin vs. the V1x. I think this may have been mentioned earlier.
    Agree with previous comments - sounds like something very similar to the TP5x. I've been playing the TP5x for close to a year now, and it's the best fit for me that I've found. Looking forward to trying these out!

    I think Titleist copying another OEMs product that's gaining traction is most likely motivator, so this wouldnt surprise me. They've been doing it for years....prov1 was a reaction to tigers epic won at pebble 2000 open with a solid core Nike ball (supposedly a bridegstone)

    Not supposedly it was and that’s confirmed in several recent articles

    I’m pretty sure titleist had the Prov1 ready or close to it before tigers win. They launched it in October of that year. Was the release early due to the win maybe but it’s not like they developed it in less than 4 months.

    The left dash isn’t new either

    Is it that much different than the AVX? I have loved the results I've had with that ball.

    This makes me think the AVX was a precursor to this ball.

    I've no idea how well the AVX is selling, maybe Titleist believes that the similar spec ball can sell better under the PROV1 flagship, rather than be branded as an all together different ball.

    The AVX is designed for a lower trajectory, the left dash is designed for a higher ball flight

    No yellow, no custom numbers. This is a very niche product.

    The AVX wasn't made for tour pros, but amateurs that want a distance ball that looks like ProV1. I played AVX for a month, it was too soft and not nearly as good around the greens as ProV so went back to the ProV.

    After initially being a fan of AVX (mostly due to the 10 yards or so of extra rollout on my tee shots) it eventually become impossible to deny the fact that "spins less" will occasionally mean not holding a firm green.

    I reconfirmed that this weekend by playing the last two holes of a round with an AVX dredged up from the bottom of my golf bag after I lost my Pro V1x. There's one green that pitches away from the fairway and is very difficult to hold for those of us with limited clubhead speed. Fortunately, on the right side of the green there's a mound that will provide a backstop if you are hitting your approach from the left side of the fairway. I took care of the first half of the strategy with a tee shot that just barely stayed inside left edge of the fairway.

    My shot with the AVX was a cleanly struck 8-iron that landed right at the base of the backstop. With Pro V1x that ball runs 3-4 feet up the side of the mound, then peels off and circles around onto the back of the green. With the AVX it climbed about 10 feet, rumbled on over the top of the mound and settled in the fringe 40 feet from the hole. Ended up missing a 3-1/2 foot par putt.

    Low spin giveth and low spin taketh away. I'm firmly back in the "give me all the spin I can get on irons and wedges" camp, myself.

    Sounds like the Titleist version of the TP5x.

    That's the straight interview with the TItleist marketing guy. Thanks for the link.

    Much more straight-talk than the highly "paraphrased" version on The Forum Which Shall Not Be Named.

    P.S. The last thing I need is less spin but there's that little demon on my shoulder saying, "It will be October 1 before you know it...."

    I am excited to try it out. Especially in the Texas winds, we have down here.

    Yes sir, me too! My perfect ball would be a really low launching, low spinning variant of the PRO V1X (since I prefer harder balls, that go farther with driver), but this is much better for me than the regular Pro V1X, we will see. Texas wind is no joke (San Antonio, here)

    Geez, I had talked myself out of even trying them for curiosity sake. But when you tell me there's a LIMITED SUPPLY? Oh my goodness, now I've got to have some.

    I am pathetic.
