I am a huge fan of the ProV1 ball. But after reading all of the marketing/specs on the ProV1x it seems as though that is the superior ball.
Since Titleist is having a "buy 3 personalized boxes of prov1(x) get 1 box free" special I have been researching what benefits each provide extensively. The amount of information on this site and other golf sites is remarkable, however a good amount of it is conflicting.
From what I gathered, it seemed as though ProV1 was the ball for someone who wants more spin and a softer feel. The ProV1x was for the player who wants slightly less spin and possibly more distance.
The confusion came into play when I started researching the different shots for each ball.
- Numerous people said that the ProV1x was longer than the ProV1.
- Some people said that the ProV1x has greater short game spin with lower long game spin. Meaning, that inside of a 7 iron, the ball will spin more, especially on half wedge shots with the ProV1x.
Are these true statements?
If so, they lead me to the question, if the ProV1x goes further, has less spin on shots where the typical golfer wants less spin (driver, 3w) and more spin where the typical golfer would want more spin (half wedge shots/irons), then why would anyone choose the V1 over the V1x?
I have played my best rounds with the ProV1, but it seems as though the "science" and marketing are pointing to the ProV1x being the better ball.
