Pros: More greenside spin than the 2009 model
Cons: Durability has improved, but still is a problem
Reviewing a ball must be done with great care, not only based on 1 round ....
So I was wondering to keep playing the 2009 model of the Pro V1x (of which I could buy 8 dz. at a well reduced price) or to switch to the new model.
I bought a dz. of the new 2011 Pro V1x and went to the practice area and dropped 6 of the new balls near the chipping area and went on playing chips, pitches and putts to check feel, spin and sound.
To me the 2011 model has a bit more greenside spin than the 2009 model and I like the less "clicky" sound while putting ....... so in this area it feels as if the 2011 model comes a little closer to the 2009 Pro V1, which I really appreciate !
First time out on the course I had a few drives that were really longer than ever before, but it might just have been the day, because at later days I didn't have similar results, ball flight is a little higher of the tee, so maybe yes the ball is longer than the 2009 model, but it can't be much.
Durability of the 2009 model was really an issue ..... yellow spots after hitting a few strokes ...... cuts, damages, etc. ..... easy ..... more than 9 holes with one ball was a miracle, still I liked the 2009 Pro V1x ..... the new model does it better, but is still damaged quite fast.
In all after playing the new model several weeks (about 10 rounds), I can say I like the performance and feel of the new model ...... the feel sure has improved and I like the putter sound better aswell.
Durability has improved, but still is a problem !
