Recommend a ball that plays between the AVX and ProV1...


Recommended Posts

I really wish there was an AVX-x, maybe I am alone, maybe I am not. I am a high speed (115-118ss driver), mid-high spin player with mid-trajectory for reference.

 

1) I find the AVX goes a little lower than I would like off longer clubs; the ProV1 trajectory here is perfect.

2) I find I dramatically overspin the ProV1 almost all the way thru the bag, especially with driver and mid-irons. The AVX is consistently 10-20 yards longer off the tee, and my gapping thru the bag is perfect with the AVX without any issues holding greens even in the longer irons. The ProV1 just overspins and doesn't carry (for me) with the mid-irons, and I get no rollout on my drives. I also pull full wedges back too much. For these reasons I just never score as well with the ProV1.

3) I prefer the ProV1 from 50 yards in, and most definitely from 20 yards in. The AVX is good and I can for sure stop it, but as we all know, the ProV1 is like throwing darts.

4) Feel is great on either. I think I prefer the softer AVX, but I've played firm and soft balls without any issues.

 

so...

 

Anyone recommend a ball that would be like an AVX-x? Is it out there somewhere?

Vice Pro is a thought. The MTB was, quite literally, a ProV1 with lower price tag.

 

Anyone have experience with the BRX and BRXS?

 

How’s spin on those tee to green?

I played this ball a fair amount; very nice, but lacking the urethane cover and by way of memory I will say the AVX spins a lot more inside of 50yards.

The TP5x (2017) isn't any better than the 2019 ProV1 for me (played them side by side this weekend with the AVX)

 

I hear they cut some spin off the TP5x in both driver and long/mid irons this year. May be worth a try.

 

How about the TourBx? Is it lower spin on driver/long game than the TP5x/ProV1?

A premium ball that doesn’t play like a premium ball at all. I do not get the allure.

I think you misunderstood the thread.

 

I want a high end ball that spins MORE than the AVX, but just a bit more. Not the big jump I see going to the ProV1.

 

The AVX spin would be ideal, but I don’t need it to be as low as it is; I also would love a tad more launch. Looking for a ball between the AVX and the ProV1...

For me the ProV1 spins like 500 more off the driver, 600-700 more off the mid irons, and 250-400 more around the green.

 

Biggest is on a spinny miss

With driver, the ProV1 will add spin a lot faster if that makes sense.

 

I’d love a ball that is right in the middle of the AVX and ProV1

Sounds like you need a TP5x or maybe Srixon XV. I tested both on GCQ and found out of most tour balls they seemed to spin the least off irons specifically.

Yeah. The TP5x (2017) just wasn’t the ticket off the driver. It was OK, but nothing special. It was like maybe a yard or two longer than the ProV1, which was much better I’m the short game.

 

I’ve tried that ball several times and just never gotten good results. Maybe the ‘19 version is better?

 

Srixon XV is a thought. I wonder how the TourBX falls in the mix. I had found one once and liked it, but never got to trial it against any other ball.

My experience is low to high spin off driver/irons:

AVX, TP5x barely lower than ProV1 = TP5

 

Low to high spin in short game:

AVX, TP5x, TP5 = ProV1

 

Trajectory low to high

AVX, ProV1, TP5, TP5x MUCH HIGHER

 

Very curious where the XV and Tour Bx fall in there.

That's because almost all balls will spin roughly the same off driver. The only differences are between the most spinny of spinny balls, and the lowest of low. You won't see much diff going from ProV to TP to Chrome Soft to XV, etc. Strike will over rule for the most part, unless you're a robot. The only times I ever saw noticeable differences were between something like ProV and a Snell GetSum, which was basically impossible to spin off any club. Cool if you can hit the ball straight, but I hit draws and I could never get my ball to move back toward the fairway. Liability if you ask me.

 

I'd try the XV for a little while if you aren't into TP5X. Just keep in mind during on course testing there are A LOT of variables and a very low sample size. I'd also just in my humble opinion, I'd fit your ball starting from the green and working your way out, with driver being the last and also least important club to factor in.

I’m a fairly straight hitter. The higher spin has zero to do with accuracy, but more to do with my total on the driver because I get only the carry out a ProV1 and similar with even the slightest miss from center. I’ve seen upwards of 15-20 extra yards out of the AVX by dropping my driver spin from 2600 to 2100 or so. Combine the fact that I’m a very high spin iron player and you can see where this is heading. The AVX lets me pull a PW/9 iron vs a 7iron. I have absolutely no issue stopping th AVX on the greens either. Even with 5/6 iron I stop it within 10’ or less. I can pull the AVX back with wedges.

 

At the same time, I’m about a 10HCP and have a decent short game. I know it’s a tall order; I want it all: low spin long game and high spin short game.

 

I just want something that maximizes my game. The AVX gives me the best overall scores I’ve seen, but I sacrifice when I’m short sided and lack that ability to stop it dead.

 

I know the perfect ball may not exist; just want to trade off with something between AVX and the other urethane offerings. I’ll gladly give up 5-10 on my drives for better greenside control, but a 2 club difference is a bit much.

You're not going to gain 20 or even 10 yards in distance from 500rpm of spin, all else equal. For whatever reason the shots that are 10 or 20 yards longer are either struck better, down wind, you swung a little faster or so on.

 

In summary from your OP and this last comment it sounds like from your POV -

1) AVX is longer off the tee and makes shooting lower scores more likely because you'll have a 9i vs 7i to green

2) You don't have any issues stopping the AVX, even with longer irons despite the lower-ish flight

3) AVX feels soft and you like that

 

Sounds like your only issue so to speak, is shots 20 yards and in. How many shots per round are you really taking from 20 yards and in? Spin on a ball on a little bump and run off the green is the same across most balls so that's not a factor really. Sounds like to me you're searching for perfection on a problem that doesn't really exist. Maybe 1 shot a round you need to hit a shot from 20 or 30 yards with a LW that you need to 2 hop stop? At 10HC should you really even be making those plays?

 

Again... Just my objective opinion here. Sounds like you're already playing pretty well.

Appreciate the response. Obviously this is based on my experience on the course, and not all things are equal. I have been playing during the week so I have had 40 or so opportunities to hit the AVX, ProV1, and TP5x side-by-side in consecutive swings. NO, not every shot with the AVX has been 20 yards further, but I would say I am averaging at least 10 yards more with the AVX than the other two. Have I had times where they are neck and neck? Of course. But the difference has been very significant and I am trying to compare only well struck shots to well struck shots, and misses to misses. Considering the sample size (8 or so rounds hitting both/all 3 balls off each tee), I don't see how it could be that I somehow consistently swing faster or strike the AVX better than the other two.

 

These have been on-course experiences to this point, I included the numbers based on the very limited time I hit both balls on a GCQuad driver fitting. I will admit I do not know the actual numbers; the differences could be much more significant.

 

Yes, the only issue I have with the AVX is 20 yards in, and no, switching to a ProV1 would not improve my scores, the AVX has been consistently the best for my scores. How many shots per round in this range? Maybe 5-6... I'm sure it varies from round to round.

 

I'm just seeing what other people's take is on the ball vs. other offerings. I do feel like I give up a bit of scoring from 50yards in with the AVX, yet it certainly improves my scores overall. Just looking for a compromise; I really enjoy the ProV1 in the short game and I get up and down with it better, that said, the AVX overall requires me to get up an down less often.

When you say ProV1 are you referring to the 2019 version? Reason I ask is if you look at the attached spin comparison done by tgw.com, the new ProV1 may be exactly the in between you're looking for. Impressively low driver spin numbers and should still have great performance around the green:

‘19 V1 still spins up in driver and mid irons for me.

 

Maybe I’m not the same type of player as the guy who did that test.

 

On a different note, shot 80 on par 72 today with the AVX. It did everything it needed to again, but I still would love a tad more green side spin.

 

Tried the BX on Friday. Shot 78 on a par 70. Great off all clubs, but still liked the AVX feel better... going to have to try them head to head again.

The Bridgestone BRX may find that spot where it feels more like the AVX but with more spin into the green. Before a neck injury I played the B330 (now BX). Over time I moved to the Srixon Z-Star, then the equivalent of the Q-Star. Ultimately, I settled on the BRX. Solid firm feel, not mushy but not too clicky/hard, low spin with good carry, yet really responsive into the green. Just a thought.

It matters not what others call you, but what you answer to.

I'm very similar to this guy in club head speed (112-115) & ball speed (160s). I use a Prov1 exclusively and they spin like crazy, on hard firm greens you need *to be able to spin it more, not necessarily do it all the time. That's why if you are going to play a spinney ball you have to learn how to hit a lower 3/4 shot clubbed up with less spin that will release if it's a back pin placement. If I'm 145 from the pin and placement is in the back, I'm not going to full swing a pw (142) because I spin it back probably a good 10 ft. I choke up and 3/4 a smooth 9 in with less pin one hop stop.

 

But when I do need to spin it back or have those sub 40 yd pitch shots or chips I want to pick with high spin the Prov1 has the ability to do that. I can't make an AVX spin more, I can make a Prov1 spin less. The downside is ProV1 is about 10 yards shorter on drives during summer. During spring/cold times its more like 20-25 yds. Which is why I will play a Tour Soft during spring and fall, most greens are mushier and not as fast anyways so spin can go down.

 

a club difference 7 on down is not a big difference which is what the distance off drivers between these balls are. The ability to spin more and consistently is way more important than 10-20 yds off driver.
