As stated above, they do seem to lack the innovation and design like a Snell has for a cheaper price. Overall ball is decent but I would go with Snell for me. If I want the cheap I go with Cut for the overal value. To me Vice would be a 3rd if the group. Your results may vary.


    Vice has yellow and red offerings Snell and Cut do not have. That being said as you mentioned , you must 5 dozen to get down to $27 and you can get previous model Srixons for $30 or less so hard to justify the Vice unless it simply outperforms for your game.

    That is somewhat true as Vice has more color offerings. Snell does have a yellow offering for their MTB Red and rumored to be coming out in the black this year.

    I like vice more for their hats. especially the one offs they run periodically through out the year.

    Decent but very very easy to scuff and cut.

    Just got my annual batch of custom balls the other day. I usually order 4-5 dozen with a custom logo on the side.



    This year, they removed the option to put a logo on the Neon colors, which are what I prefer playing. So I only got 2 dozen white balls with a design on them. When those run out, hopefully they will have the option for custom Neon as well. If not, might order some blank Neons.

    I've tried Snell and Cut, and haven't liked either.



    The Vice Pro feels like a ProV to me. And even when I don't buy 5 dozen, and get a custom logo, they still come out to be cheaper than ProV's.
  • I normally play the TP5 or Bridgestone B330. I was having trouble seeing white and yellow balls in the dead winter grass. Vice was the only high level ball I could find in a red/pink and I was very surprised with the play. LOVED them and could spot them very easily. Can get mint used on ebay for $1 ball shipped.

    Odd, but I don't want to play a ball some guy named after himself. Maybe if the Snell ball was called Antonio Guiseppe Bardinelli at least that would be good for alignment. Vice I like, Cut maybe as well I'll have to play them to check. In all of this, I like Frank. Wilson Pro Duo may be the best and I believe in Frank. He didn't call it Frank Soft and I like that and that puts him ahead as far as naming is concerned vs Snell. So I'm going to test some Vice and some Cut but I think the Duo Pro (aka Frank Soft) is going to win. Another thought...if I personalize a Snell ball, how personal is that? Some guy already put his name on it.

    Well I guess you can never play a Scotty Cameron Putter then?

    I haven't tried them outdoors yet, but i have noticed that inside, the projection screen scuffs them up a LOT more than some other balls I've been using (including a Snell).



    Other than that, they seem like a good ball, especially for the price.

    There are many reasons for their “fragility” but, environment is only half the battle. Your equipment, AoA, and swing in general can cause even the best golf balls to show wear and scuff

    Certainly very true. But I was only referring to comparisons of how different balls handle the exact same environment, same equipment, and same swing.

    I strongly recommend these balls for the price and performance. I play the Vice Tours and really enjoy how they perform. My buddy plays the pro and he couldn’t be happier with them. Thinking about trying these pro soft this year. But couldn’t find anything negative about these balls or the company

    I received my Pro Soft Lime for the GolfWrx testing, and received my 6 dozen for price of 5 Vice Pro lime today.

    Forecast for Sunday is decent for golf, so will be doing some on-course testing Sunday.

    Looking forward to comparing with my usual gamer, 2018 Chrome Soft. It's still too cold to play CS-X, which I use when TX summer arrives.

    I do. He has passed though but still. Hardest thing was not playing the Hogan balls.

    Yes he is. Dean doesn't need to contribute to GolfWRX but, he does so monetarily, if I'm not mistaken, and, he addresses his brand in the smartest of ways. There are reps from almost every company on this website. That is quite obvious. But, the big wig, top level guys don't put their 2 cents on here. Dean does. And it's appreciated. He supports questions, addresses his brand, advertises his product and gives a lot of insight to the industry.

    Saw an Instagram post from Vice that claims they are updating the website to allow mix/match orders while getting the bulk price.



    About time.

    Been playing the Vice Pro+ since Christmas (got a few dozen as a present) and its been surprisingly comparable to a 1x which has been the go to for years. The price point is attractive and so far with limited action I'm not disappointed. Good feel around the greens and checks well on a variety of shots. Also feels great off the putter. Hope this helps and best wishes.

    I currently play the Pro Plus. So far, it performs similarly to the ProV1 X. Durable. Free customization when I ordered them so I got my business logo on them.

    Of course, just weeks after getting my latest batch. So silly they wouldn't allow this in the past. I usually go in with a buddy and he prefers the white while I like the Orange Pro's. Had to order 5 boxes of all white this go around.
  • jkim27jkim27 Members Posts: 38 ✭✭
    I played the Pro for a while trying to see what all the hype is about. I will say that the Vice balls are probably the best bang for your buck in terms of feel, distance and durability (they last forever). BUT - no way do they compare to ProV. ProV is absolutely softer, better greenside spin and distance.
  • GSDriverGSDriver Members Posts: 597 ✭✭
    I find the Vice balls better than pro V1s, so guess it depends on perceptions. I don't usually play Pro V1, but when I find nice ones I keep them and hit now and then.

    Love the Vice Pro's. First ordered back in 2015 and continue to play them as my main ball. Last year I switched it up and played the Vice Pro Soft. Still a great ball, but I prefer the Vice Pro's over the Softs. Got my order for this year a month ago.
