Titleist Velocity vs. NXT Tour (and tour S) - Page 3

ive noticed the exact same thing. i played prov1's and v1x's early this past season and had specific clubs for certain holes... after switching to the velocity mid year im EASILY a club longer with the velocity's .. an 8 iron for me with the prov1 is about a 150-155yard club... after going to the velocity's i could hit the same 8 iron 165-170. i didnt notice much of a drop off in spin around the greens either. ive managed to save $20 a dozen by switching from the prov1's to the velocitys and increase my yardage... got a box of the double digit velocitys for christmas today actually. cant wait to pick up my new irons (Titleist MB712's) and get 2013 started!!!

My swing speed is 95.. and i just want to keep it on the fairway. Fighting a slight slice. I do not like my Gamer V2s.. feel heavy and too soft.
Come on pros.. help an oblivious member out.


I am not a pro. My handicap higher than yours, but I have tried numerous balls for my handicap level and keep returning to Titleist DT Solos. They are forgiving and act really nice around the green for my skill level. My putter really likes the ball.

I started out liking the NXT tour S ball when I first used them but then....I had a weird problem of too much distance with irons.  That seems and feels odd to say but it was messing up my gapping big time and I was just never sure what club to use.  I went back to the Srixon Z star and am comfortable again( however Srixons Q star felt like a pretty good ball for half the price).

i love the velocitys, but only play the balls I find, unfortunatley no velocitys for me, only pro v1s and nxt tours.

Decided to play the Velocity this weekend and I was impressed. A good performer all over the course. Wouldn't have tried it but Walmart was out of the NXT Tour S. I've read all kinds of bad things about the Velocity but it did all the things it wasn't supposed to for me. I had my best chipping and putting days of the season. I'm sure it's all in my head, sometimes I need a sugar pill.

Velocity went very long for me.  It bounced around green but for my playing level, it's ok.   B/c I don't hit long, the extra yards Velocity gives me is good.   But I won't use it where greens are hard and fast.

 

Nxt Tour has good distance, trajectory, and right amount of spin for me.  I will use it on any course.  Next Tour S is a softer version of Nxt Tour.  Other than that, I didn't notice much difference.

Totally agree!  I have played the Bridgestone E6 (very good but bit harder than so/lo) , B330RX (arguably the Rolls Royce of balls for slower swing speeds but alas, with a Rolls Royce price tag!) Wilson Staff Duo and Fifty Elite (both okay, imo) but NOTHING has the overall tee to green performance of the humble Titleist DT So/Lo!!!  Great ball at a great price point for most amateurs-especially those with slower swing speeds which, of course is most amateurs. LOL

Pro V1 practice balls. Exact same as regular Pro V's for the price of the NXT.
