New Titleist balls

5 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell which of their NXT Tour model balls compare to the Pro V1 and Pro V1X? I love playing the Pro V1s, yet am not a pro and have a very high handicap. Yeah, love them for my short game. But depending on which courses I play on, I often lose a bunch during a round. Therefore at $48, I would rather pay $10+ less for their balls.

I think you hit the nail on the head though. My advice, buy a sleeve of NXT Tour S but also maybe a couple other brands, grab you putter and putt them. There is so much emphasis in the ball market on distance that we tend to forget how much of the game is 50 yards in. These days the balls are so adaptable for each swing, it's not like the old days of something was either a spin ball or a distance ball. At the least, narrow your choices down given short game feel and then maybe look at long-game attributes.

Yes, I agree. I also like the Bridgestone E6, but now the E5 since my drives no longer have a severe spin. Yet I do like the Titleist. Only thing about them is you can not contact them via Email. And it's a pain to call their parent company. Because I also have a question on their California putters. BUT, this is why we have this great TST forum with their great members.

Titleist has a section on their website that you can ask questions like this.  The NXT Tour S has a soft feel around the green.  Check it out.

They also have a golf ball fitting tool that will suggest alternate ball types.
