Pro V 1x Weirdness - Page 2

post #19 of 30

Re: Pro V 1x Weirdness

Sounds to me like a swing issue, not a ball issue. Take a look at your swing. V1x's are a great ball, and I've never lost distance by switching balls. Unless I'm in my back yard hitting foamy balls.

I know distance isn't everything but I don't backspin the ball (other than a couple by accident) and the Callaway is $20 a doz cheaper so I won't be going back to the Titleist anytime soon. I had to go 1 iron longer with the Pro V1's and I lost distance off the tee for sure.
The HX Hot's are longer than the Prov1x's at least by my experience as well.

But, not by 15 yards. Maybe 5-7 yards with my driver, and about 5 yards with the irons...but nothing to play like 2-3 clubs shorter though.

Re: Pro V 1x Weirdness

i think it may be a swing issue that im going to have to work out. i may try the TP black/reds, from what i remember the reds spin more, correct?

as for the callaway hot plus, those things FLY...but then they dont stop either. which is why i like the pro v 1x. i just need to figure out whats going on with my swing...

Re: Pro V 1x Weirdness

The other day I was hitting all of my approach shots significantly short. I'm convinced it was because all the fairways were so wet that I was just taking much more of a divot than usual... thus absorbing some of my swing energy.

No matter what ball he is using, he's NOT going to gain/lose 15 yards from golf ball to golf ball. I won't add 15 yards by playing a Bridgestone e6. I've played them many times. 5 yards I could HONESTLY see.

But you really think he's losing 15 yards from a golf ball with iron shots?

A. He's mishitting the ball all of a sudden
B. Into some heavy wind or other play condition

It's that simple - If you know a ball that will go 15 yards further than the Prov1X let me know, I'd love to switch to it bro.
I got the pro v and pro v1x thing down...Yes I do think you can lose 15 yards roughly one club from a ball. Think about every time you've hit an iron and said how did that come up short. Probably because your mishits and any other little variable shows more when you're hitting a pro v1x than it would with other types of balls. Comparing yourself to him is apples and oranges. You have no idea what kind of iron player he is compared to you. Also give me almost any 2 piece ball pinnacle, top flite, and some callaways I wil hit them roughly one club further than a pro v1x. My point is BRO that just because it doesn't happen to you doesn't mean it can't happen to anyone else.

the x goes lower because of less spin. more backspin will loft the ball higher.

That's wrong if you're talking about launch angle. Pro V1x launches higher and has less spin. Pro V1 launches lower and has more spin.

For peak height, it depends on too many things to say even generally which ball gets the highest peak flight.

more backspin results in ballooning effect...i am not talking about anything else..comparing two balls. not swing arc's...

launch angle has nothing to do with the ball either...

Waterlogged balls are quite obvious that they are such.

Launch has everything to do with the ball. The Pro V1x dimple pattern causes it to launch higher initially

Bump...

 

ProV1x is an awesome ball...I think it's funny that no one has asked the OP what type of clubs he uses, type of swing, playing conditions, etc...With a slow swing speed and a super GI set of irons could someone theoretically lose 15 yards with a different ball - any ball, let alone a Prov1x?  What if someone swings super fast and spins the s*** out of the ProV1x into the wind and it goes nowhere?

 

Not much information on OP's equipment, playing experience, conditions, swing, etc...need more information to diagnose.  I'm a huge fan of ProV1x

 

BUMP
