Pros: Great in every aspect.
Cons: Soft cover might scuff a bit more on "box" groove clubs but nothing noticable.
Recently playing a striving 9-hole (soon to be 18) course that was tough and had a wicker basket full of "2010" prov1 balls. $3 each or 4 for $10. I usually don't get froggy but I was confident in my game and stopped losing more than 1 ball a round. I fell in love cause the feel was solid yet soft and controllable and incredibly more spin. But that's half the story, it sucks having to pay sooo much for a ball that will do everything you want and not lose any distance or control. I searched online for a ball equal to it and yet didn't break the bank, and to match my fg tour irons, i decided on the fg tour urethane ball for 26 bucks on ebay. when i played these i was more amazed at the cover. Softer than the prov1. There was one thing that worried me was i hit a 6 iron (notice: legal grooves on a soft steel iron) and it scuffed. I wasn't sure why cause i didnt hit cart path or hit out of the sand. But it never happened again. Soft cover is great and considering i dont often full swing an actual wedge (sand or lob) with illegal box grooves which might tear up the ball, its relatively tough and possibly just as tough as the prov1. I hit longer off the tee and more consistent.
Biggest thing is its a 50 compression tour ball. Which less compression usually is used for improved distance/ decreased side spin balls like the bridgestone e6 or even more so, the pinnacle gold distance. Next to eachother, it seems as if the fg has larger dimples that are all the same size and shape, unlike the prov1 which has smaller dimples and slightly larger dimples which were all smaller than the fg's. I could only assume the prov1 dimples are more for increased control through the air. i feel as if the fg is a great ball not only for the price but for the design. 50 compression improved distance and control, soft feel for improved stability around and on the greens, and dimples that i can only assume a bad swing on a fg the same as a prov1 will be less severely hooked or sliced. overall great ball. just hard to find for cheap considering im a college guy just starting to play. 35 bucks locally and 26 bucks online. only downside is the wait. so for now...i'll wait. =)
or keep playing mid level control balls like top-flite gamer v2 or bridgestone e5.
