IMHO keeping the same name is not a bright idea - too confusing. I'd choose V2.

..... Titleist are very good balls, but there are many good balls out there ...... what's the other choices...?

they would obviously have to discontinue the older version if they make a new ball and keep the old name...for their own good, if they want more money make it a different name and make the old balls as well...get new customers buying their balls if they lessen the price.

Huh?

They're not going to make the Pro V1x less expensive and charge more for the Pro V2x (or whatever they call it, whatever "it" is).

Clearly this is a step forward, but we've already had a few versions of the Pro V1 and one less of the Pro V1x.

If they are going to create a new ball the Tour V1x seems most fitting IMO.

Pro V2 would be my vote...its logical and keeps the same brand name feel.

Re: New Pro V Balls from Titleist?

Interesting question. Do you give something a brand new name, or keep the old one? Not many golf companies go for the latter. Callaway's Big Bertha irons are one example (2002, 2004, 2006 versions are different, but same basic name), Cleveland's Launcher 460 is another (2004, 2006 versions).

As someone else pointed out, Titleist is already on the second generation of the Pro V1 and the only outward visual difference is a different sidestamp and the some copy on the packaging saying they're new and improved. Callaway's doing the same thing this year with the "Improved" HX Tour and HX Tour 56.

I say stay with Pro V1 and V1x. It's a bit more like automotive nomenclature. A Toyota Camry is a Camry no matter what changes come, you just differentiate them by model year. I don't think anyone is going to not buy the next-generation version of the best-selling ball in golf because of the name. I'd play a 2007 Titleist Pro V1x regardless.

Besides, there are too many bad product names out there already. Let's not create any new ones.

I got this survey too. I hope they name it the Tour V1 and Tour V1x, I like the ring.

I like it simple, V and X

Re: New Pro V Balls from Titleist?

Similar to Everardo, I like the V and the X. It is what most players refer to them anyway. I actually put in the comments field that they should consider calling them the 'Tour V' and the 'Tour X'.

Re: New Pro V Balls from Titleist?

I thought that was a joke for a sec. ProV7??? WTF? That's totally stupid.

"ProV" has almost become a standard golf term. "Bob, did you find your Nike in there?" bob: "Nope but I found a ProV!!!"

I'm always saying, "well it was a good round but I lost two ProV's today"....

I'd go with "ProV" and "ProX"
