Don’t carry a formal cap but shot scope says I’m 7.3 strokes worse than a 0 cap. 
 

I hit the ball about 215-245 off the tee so 90mph ish swing speed. 
 

I use a ProV1x cause I’m a low spin, low launching guy and this ball seems to fly higher for me and spin more.

Along with 10-15 caps.
 

I’ll never understand how a guy who hits the ball 280+ off the tee shoots anything worse than 4 or 5 over.

Not to prove a point with facts or anything, but, the handicaps of all 6 are between +2 and 2.

112 SS, 4.8hct, TP5X Yellow 

 

Played white ProV1X for 10+ years prior but switched to the yellow ball last season and really like how much easier they are to pickup. The ProV1X yellow covers feel much harder/clickier than their white counterparts so I switched the the TP5X and haven't looked back

you've never seen me putt!

 

SS around 112 on course, fluctuate between a 5 and 8 depending on how much I'm working, love the Snell MTB-X, left dash ProV1, and trying out the Vice Pro plus, so far so good on that one.

Swingspeed is 115-120 , 5 handicap and playing the 2021 version of the TP5X. I have been toying with the TP5X to get some more spin around the greens however it just doesn't mesh well with my driver so I typically stick to the TP5X despite a little trade off around the greens. If I can hit fairways it makes it harder for me to get GIR and take advantage of my putting which is a strength of mine. Don't notice much of a difference feel wise when putting with either.

Interesting topic, I've been hoeing hard on balls this year.

 

my index is down to 0.4 (my lowest ever, mainly due to wisdom/course management that I have gained in my middle years)

 

Anyway I'm 44 SS with driver is 115-118 with a substantial upward angle of attack (play my G425 max at 7.5* and still struggle with spin, my miss in towards the heel but I've been getting it close to center lately)

 

My ball of choice is the Srixon Z-Star XV or ProV1x, due to the feel ( I love the sound of the firmer ball on the club).  I have experimented this year with the reg Z-star, reg ProV1, left dash V1x, AVX and Z-star XV. That being said I liked the left dash but the durability is crap, my shots blow completely through the cover on a normal 8 iron shot, so I more use the V1x (super durable) or XV (not durable but the scuffs are minimal and don't affect play).

 

Performance wise especially with more than a 20 KM wind, the AVX is the ball that performs best for me. I hate the feel of it but it performs, so I now use it.
