Yesterday afternoon, Landgon and I was having an intriguing conversation about golf balls. Since I am an avid golfer, he asked me what ball do I use when I play a round of golf. I use the Titleist Pro V1 golf ball. I use that ball because I got it for a Christmas gift. I normally would not play with that ball since they are so expensive. About 40 or 50 dollars a dozen. Crazy huh? I really shouldn't use this ball because its for players who have higher skill levels in golf. On that note, Here is some of the article that gives the specs of the golf ball I use.
March 14, 2003 - What do you say when the best gets better?
In this case, you say, "Titleist."
High-handicappers (**THAT'S ME**) can enjoy the Pro V1s, but ultimately, a weekend hacker will hit them into the woods or water just as easily as an X-Out - but pay far more. No, the Pro V1s are geared to the serious - and seriously good - golfer who wants the best ball for his or her swing.
New Pro V1 Characteristics
The New Pro V1 features a large core that is soft and fast, with a urethane elastomer cover that enhances speed and spin and features 392 dimples. Its performance is longer than the original Pro V1, and the distance is more consistent from tee-to-green - but maintains what Titleist calls (and has trademarked) "Drop-and-Stop" performance into greens.
The New Pro V1 is designed for golfers with a wide range of launch conditions.
Pro V1x Characteristics
The Pro V1x is really meant for the best of the best. It's a version of the Pro V1 optimized for the highest swing speeds and high lift launch conditions. Or, as Titleist puts it, "The Pro V1x is the distance and performance solution for Pro V1 players who require less spin into the green, as well as for golfers currently playing competitive high-performance golf balls with low spin and firmer feel.
The Pro V1x has a high-compression dual core in a speed-enhancing and spin-controlling ionomer casing and a soft, thin Urethane Elastomer cover. It has 332 dimples (60 fewer than the Pro V1), designed to aid a more penetrating ball flight. The Pro V1x spins less on all shots than the Pro V1, but should still provide plenty of feel around greens.
While the New Pro V1 is longer than the old Pro V1, it's the Pro V1x that has really turned heads with its distance. Els and Mickelson, in particular, have been blasting away and crediting their prodigious length to the Pro V1x.
But you simply can't go wrong with either ball - as long as you're willing to spend to the money.
