Personally I don't see all the hype behind them. Especially for the price. To me lethals or chrome + react the same for cheaper.

But that being said I gave dad a new pro v1x that I had to use last round and hit played the best he has in the past 3 or 4 years.

Why search Google when I can hear the opinions of golfers here?

I find they are the best ball around the green.  There are many threads in this section about them, which is why @Shorty was recommending a search.  They have been discussed many times.

 

 ProV1 or Prov1X? 

 

 ProV1's - Enough Already 

 

 What is the real difference between Titleist Prov1 and Prov1x Balls 

 

 I might be sold on the Pro-V1 

 

 Prov1 vrs. Prov1x - What's the difference?

Thanks guys...I live next to two golf courses so I find and play a lot of stray balls. Turns out I have a couple of these Pro V1s in my bag! I do notice the Titlelist and Callaway balls I play usually result in better shots.

I refuse to pay $47 for a dozen balls. I have always played with cheaper balls. I have never been able to stop a ball on the green. Recently found a few ProV1's and played them, have been able to drop and stop shots into the green, short chips check up nicely. I was never able to do this with any other ball. So now I find deals on ProV's, I play "practice" balls, can tell no difference. Also play he "Black spot" balls if anyone has heard of these, and they are great. Also now I hit cheaper balls off the tee and play the ProV into the green, yes I know this is not officially legal. But I don't play in tournaments and I don't lose very many ProV's this way.

Love pro v1s, can't afford them. If you can find older 3 piece tour balls at the store they can be great deals. I 'm playing Taylormade TP Black LDPs right now. $20/dozen and i get a good penetrating ball flight and good greenside control with them. Would rather play the slightly softer pro v1x but for now the TP blacks are working for my game.

The Prov1x for my swing has the most stopping power on the green compared to any other ball I have ever played - too much for my 18 HCP and the fact that I am usually short.  I have also driven it very long with a good swing.  It is no doubt an excellent ball for better players, and for some it may be worth the $4/ball.  I find the 2nd tier urethene cover (U/3, Gamer Tour, e5) balls more suited to my game, but if I had a pro's swing I would probably being playing the Prov1 or Prov1x.

 

I don't buy Titleist's Prov1 marketing campaign, but there is no better (some may be as good) ball for skilled players.

I made a conscious decision to not ever play ProV1s  for fear of loving them, then being stuck playing $4 balls. However, I played in a charity tournament yesterday and hit my ball into a tree. It apparently never came down but I did find a ProV1x while looking. I grabbed the ProV1x and dropped to replay my shot from the original spot (since my first ball was lost) and played it throughout the rest of that hole. When I got to the green ,I had a chip of about 5 yards to the green, with the pin being another 10 yards from the edge of the green. Generally I will land the ball somewhere midway between the edge of the green and the hole and it'll run out a bit and end up pretty close. Not with the Prov1x. That thing landed and stopped, not moving an inch. Holy crap, never stopped a chip like that before. I put it in my bag and did not use it again for the rest of the round. I can't be falling in love with $4 balls. ;-)
