Am I far off here???? Keep up the good work down and keep saving that minimum wage.....maybe one day you can afford non-clone clubs and maybe even some ProVs!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You sound like the most pessimistic, hate-life person, I've ever heard from.

It's not because we need it... it's because we can
So your saying you drive a ferrari, have lebrons sneakers, and drink expensive wine? Hah, well you did say we.

Re: ProV1's - Enough Already

I like ProV1's I like finding them to,I dont buy them because 50 a pop is way to far out of my price range but I do play Bridgestone B330 because I like the softer feel off the putter and wedge's, but hey if people dont mind loseing 50 dollars a month in golf ball's I dont mind finding them.

So why pay double the price? I know some people have money to piss away, but it just doesn't make any sense to me. Especially if you're a 14 handicap slicer... go play a frigging low spin ball that'll reduce that slice and cost less than half the price. Maybe I'm overreacting, but it just drives me nuts seeing so many people extol the greatness of a ball that probably isn't all that suited to thier game or one that they can't tell the difference between it and any other ball in the first place.

just had to get that off my chest... sorry
I honestly don't understand why you even care....Play your game, and let other people play their's. If someone wants to have a $234234234 set of golf clubs and be a 20+ handicapper who cares!

On another note I think ball selection is huge. People need to realize the type of swing that they produce determines selection. I play (Or I should say I just bought) the Bridgestone 330's. Then again my driver SS is 120-125.

Re: ProV1's - Enough Already

Hehe, personally I play the big bucket o' recycled balls, but I'm all for people playing more Pro V's. It makes them feel good and I can pick up some fancier balls when they lose 'em on the course.

I think I explained myself if you actually take the time to READ my posts... or were you being lazy and not reading through the entire thread.

Why did you resurrect a thread that has been pretty much all played out? Furthermore, why did you do such without providing any real additional insight or questions?

Also, I'm pretty sure I made it clear that there was no rational basis for my feelings, and I was just opening up a topic for discussion.

Re: ProV1's - Enough Already

IMO this thread has run it's course, honestly what are we discussing here? Serves no purpose....

Re: ProV1's - Enough Already

See, I hate the feel of hard balls, and I love to play shots with loads of spin. Thats why I play the pro v1's

Re: ProV1's - Enough Already

I am playing a very tough, tight course today. I will take my 26.3 hanidcap out there and see how I do. I will start with ONE Pro V1 ball. How many holes do you think I will finish with it? 0? 1? 6? After I lose it I will switch back to my Wilson ZIP, which, by the way, feel a little short on distance.

Re: ProV1's - Enough Already

I play to around a 4 and i for one just dont like the feel of the pro v. I played balata ht from maxfli until you couldnt find them anymore and am now trying the callaway ht hotbite. Anybody here try them yet and what do you think about them.

Dude, if I've ever played balata I honestly don't remember, the hot bite is not a bad ball but if you want to play a good ball try the bridgestone B330, B330RX,or the B330 S also if your looking exclusivly ay Callaway look no further than the Tour ix a great ball.

Re: ProV1's - Enough Already

Any opinions on playing rounds with ProV1 x-outs?? I overheard a guy at a local golf store saying he plays them but I always figured they were just good practice balls!!??

Honestly I don't think you would notice a difference,I'm sure there close enough in quality to pretty much be the same.

Re: ProV1's - Enough Already

I don't use them. No ball is worth $4.00.

Re: ProV1's - Enough Already

Played in a New Years tournament and broke out the last of my Pro V stash even though I generally use NXT Tour balls in the winter. I remembered why I like the Pro V's above all else with the first shot; It's the way they feel on the club face. The fact that they are great on and around the green doesn't hurt either.
