OK I watched all 3 parts, pffff maybe I could better have been practicing ...... it's more like this senior vice president of R&D is the senior president of Marketing..... Any golfer should play the Pro V1 or Pro V1x to be rewarded when they shoot their best shots ....... it is also about the outcome every hacker gets when they do their online fitting....... of course he is right to a certain degree.
Same with the talk of swingspeed .... so at any swingspeed the premium balls are best, but is a Pro V1 best for a average hacker, hitting too much side spin with a 5 iron trying to hit a ball close at a par 3 ..... yep only when they play their best shot ,,,,,, however if not .....it is probably the next $5 slicing into the lake ..... no problem...... you can have many in your ball pocket, they don't cost much (he said).
Who the F#CK is interested in the shellife of a golfball ...... OK nice to now there is no problem with 3 - 5 years old new boxes, but it was very interesting to know how the life of a golfball would be shortened lying somewhere in a waterhazard for half a year, sure they researched that, but no comments !
When the question on shell life came (so there must be a LOT of questions at the forum about shell life (SURE) ), I was hoping the answer would involve durability, but they avoid the 10.000 plus questions on durability that for certain must be at the Titleist-team Forum, or are that the questions that are not improved and never show up at the Titleist-team Forum ?
I have been playing the DT Solo quite a lot, and it certaintly is their best performing low cost ball, that actually spins more than most midpriced balls and it is maybe only 5 yds shorter than a Pro V1x at best.
So conclusion might be, that if you can expect to shoot many of your best shots to play the Pro V1 or Pro V1x, but if you are not at that level ...... why not go for the DT Solo ?
