Review 1

I don't lack for distance, but for some reason, I've always preferred lower-compression balls that feel soft off the irons. This summer, though, on a whim, I picked up a sleeve of the new Pro V1x. In the past, the only time I played the x model was when I found one in the woods, and to me, they felt like rocks -- so much so, in fact, that it got to the point that I'd give them away if I found them.

Well, forget all that. My swing has undergone some recent changes, and I'm compressing the ball better now, but I also think this ball has undergone some changes, because I absolutely bomb this thing. It's a solid 20 yds longer than anything else I can put on a tee, and it's a club longer off my irons, as well. Off the putter and wedges, though, it still has that great Pro V1 feel, and it stops the way it should on the short chips and pitches.

Is it worth $45 a dozen? Probably not. But the damn thing is head and shoulders better than any other ball I've tried right now, and I've tried a lot. If you're a decent ball striker and hit your driver an honest 250+ yds, I'd recommend that you give this ball a try. Stepping up to your drive on a long par 5, checking your yardages, and realizing, "Hey, I can get home in two from here" -- well, it doesn't take long to get used to that at all.

Just played 18 with this ball and I love it!! Great distance off the tee and nice spin around the greens. You DO NOT need to have a swing speed of 100+ to play this ball. I have consistent speed of 90-95mph and knocking it 260yds or more. This is a great ball to have in your bag but its a little pricey. I found a website that sells them for $23 with 5A rating which is like finding a ball in the woods that was hit only once. I am hooked.


Review 3

I just played in my first tourney and my father gave me a box of the Pro V1x to play with cause I usually play with whatever is on sale. This one day has changed my mind about balls forever. I don't know if it was the tourney that made me focus more or it was the ball. It was probably a little of both but I have decided to play with good balls from now on. I have a Cobra driver, Cobra 3w with a X-100 steel shafts, Ping i10s and Cleveland CG12s. I know, people always tell me that I could be much longer with a graphite shaft but I like the control that steel offers. I tend to swing out of my ass on drives and this ball takes off! I don't know what my swing speed is but my usual drive is carry 280, (toss up 50/50 to hit a fairway though, gulp). I lose about 10 yards compared to a full on distance ball but the feel on the par 3s and around the greens make up for it.

I have never played my irons so well especially on the par 3s. Direction of the ball is great. It is responsive enough to control a fade or draw into the wind and hold the line. I find that the balls like the Callaway HX tour56 are too soft for me as off hits will spin to never-never land.

I played with 1 sleeve for all 18 and I found that the balls did not scuff too bad. Definately better wear than the HX Tour 56. 1 sleeve was enough for me as this ball is fricking expensive! Remember, I play with whatever is on sale or people give me but I think this has changed. Perhaps this is the price of a little self-esteem. I am looking forward to trying the Pro V1.
