Pros: Great performing ball
Cons: Look for me personally and price.
I recently tested the Volvik Vista iS orange color golf ball. This is a great performing golf ball if you are into golf balls with alternative color schemes.
This ball almost glows in the grass. I think it is pretty easy to find, especially for someone like me who plays early in the mornings, often alone. It does seem to help. I am not sure if the orange color really helps you track the ball in the air that much better. Maybe a bit better.
For me this ball performed great off the driver. I thought I might have some distraction issues with the color but it was just fine. It feels very nice, performs well in the wind and is pretty long.
Similar to the White Color S3 I like the way that this ball feels off the irons. It feels explosive and seems to hold greens just fine for me. I again wondered if the color was going to be distracting but it was not. I had not issues with it. This ball is up there with any other off the irons.
I thought this ball was similar to the White Color S3 I tried in this department. It is a bit hard or “clicky” sounding around the greens. I am used to a softer version high end ball and really like that soft feel around the greens. If you are used to a slightly harder feeling ball like a ProV1x I think you would really like how this feels on greenside shots.
This is a very good ball overall. I just don’t really like the look of it personally. I could possibly get used to it and I am sure it would be just fine, but it would take some time. It definitely caters to a niche market. I don’t know if I could get used to the color. The price is also a bit high on these but comparable to other high end balls. I just wonder if they are not pricing themselves out of some new customers.
