Which Ball?

10 posts in this topic

I have a slow swing speed since I'm young. I hear the e6's are good for slow swing speeds.I get free prov1's. Is it worth buying e6's or should I stick with prov1's?

If you get ProV1s for free, it takes the cost per ball out of the equation, so stick with them (or at least stick with something)

Pro V1s could be hurting you since you have a slow swing though.  You may find that you get more distance with a ball that is more low spin.  You might want to try a ball like the Bridgestone E7 or really any ball in the $20 a dozen range.

The ProV1s should be good. My son also uses them.

In the uk there are pro v1 & pro v1x One of them is softer for a slower swing speed, but I forgetwhich one, as I only play Bridgestone.

We have both here as well. Check out the bottom of this web page for differences: http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/family/index.jsp?categoryId=18812356&camp;=PPC:8LeNfBzr:2327131126%7Cb:+titleist%20+pro%20+v1&mkwid;=8LeNfBzr&002=2391128&004=1094025048&005=20267202557&006=2327131126&009=b&011=titleist%20pro%20v1x%20vs%20pro%20v1

Free is good!  Do you get all Titleist balls for free, or just the ProV1's?  If it's all Titleist balls, you might also try some of their other offerings.....maybe the DT Solo as a first option.

Failing that, the ProV1's may not be right for your game.  If you find something you like better, maybe a lower spin ball that gives you some extra distance, I'll bet you can find some barter opportunities. I'd be happy to buy, and swap you a dozen of just about any ball you like, in exchange for a dozen ProV1's.......and I'd be surprised if you couldn't find a bunch of others willing to do the same locally!

I second the vote for DT Solos. I like them because the don't spin too much but still stick the greens pretty well.

Plus one on this--you will have no problem bartering when your currency is ProV1's!

    • My Swing (Hardspoon)
      Good practice session today.  I reviewed the grip thread one more time before I went out, and made that a point of emphasis before every shot. My focus was to continue to groove the in-to-out path I've been working on, but to start to really work on proper clubface angle.  My tendency right now (when I take the "correct" grip) is to leave the face open at impact, leading to straight pushes and push-fades. It's not easy, but I did have some success, starting with slow-motion swings and working up to (what felt like) 80-90%.  I focused on using the move that @iacas explained in Erie (hand rotation, not a "wrist-flip") to get the face squared up.  I was able to hit some nice push-draws and straight draws with both the irons and driver...not consistently, but it was encouraging. I also bought a tripod adapter for my iPhone so I can try some 240fps recordings of my swing this weekend.

      It matters. Please read the last paragraph of my original post (the one that explains why I'm tracking a bogus HI). I'm using an online Handicap tracker. My HI is not legitimate on a couple levels. I don't belong to a club and I play the vast majority of my rounds by myself. That's why I don't show a HI in my profile. It's only important that I play by the rules because I want an honest assessment of my progress. I may never play in a tournament, but if I do, I'd like to be bit more familiar with how these things are done. Just because I suck at golf doesn't mean I can try to learn the rules.
    • Hitting behind the ball and making deep divots...
      I took a look at your my swing thread - looks like you've gotten some good advice there and made some solid improvements.  FWIW - I posted this thread here called "What is the Secret of the Golf Swing" . .and I said that, for me, it was realizing how not to aim at the ball.  This "realization" helped me fix a lot of the things I see in your swing.  I'd been told lots and lots of times - don't hit at the ball, swing through to the target . but it didn't make sense to me . .until one day it suddenly did.  Anyway - while I suffered from this misconception - I had a variety of bad shots.  On my good days I could hit it pretty good.  On my bad days anything could happen . .I could slice it, hit it fat, pull hook it, top it, skull it, etc.  Anyway - it's not as easy as just "don't hit at the ball" . .or, as I think of it.  .don't aim "the energy of your swing at the back of the ball".   Speaking just for myself, it took a lot of practice and lessons to get to where I could "suddenly have this realization".  But . .in the meantime - you are hitting it fat (or whatever) because you're making a lot of corrections for some fundamentals that are off.  And, for sure, fatigue would have a lot to do with it.  The more fatigued you are, the less likely you'll be to make this corrections successfully .  If you get lessons or sign up for evolvr or just keep posting in the myswing thread - you can get the (slow) way forward - it's by focusing on one thing and then the next and then the next and yada yada.  I couldn't say what your "next thing" to work on is, though.     
    • "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge May 2016
      Practicing different speeds of backswing almost making a drill of it.  Super slow checking positions, then slow, then kind of slow and swing  . I think I had one day of my reply to topic not posting bc sometimes my phone is crappy but was able to do the next morning and had two entries that day.  Its up to the powers that be if I completed the challenge.
