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.

 

Look:

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. 

 

Driver:

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. 

 

Irons:

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.

 

Short Game:

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.

 

Closing:

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.
