Fun unexpected mail from Titleist (new Pro V1 Test Balls, NXT, etc.)

Apparently my dreams have come true and I got picked to do some Titleist R&D! Anyone else get a sleeve of balls?

That's pretty nice. Is this something that you signed up for?

I did just recently. I don't know if it was from an email or at the website though.

I have one from 3-4 years ago. It's a cool feeling. Just had to write a review of the test balls. I kept one for my wall rack

If it were me they'd already be hooked into the woods by now. Thanks Titleist!

I used them in safe holes tonight. They play like prov's, not sure which ones yet. Have pretty good distance and reasonable feel. I will have to see how it goes.

awesome! always good to get stuff like that in the mail!

 

on a side note: (not trying to detract from your good fortune)

 

I always wanted to be a tester, been a Pro V1x snob since I can remember... then one day a friend and I blacked out 5 balls. He wrote down which balls were what and I proceeded to hit drivers, 6 irons, wedges, and flops with each of them. 

 

I got 2 right out of those shots and they were with the full wedges. 

 

Moral of my story..... I am not good enough to be a snob about my golf balls.

 

Now I play whatever is given to me through work.

I got some to test a couple of years ago.  I couldn't tell a damn bit of difference between the test ball and my normal ball.

Wonder what it is. The arrow markers are what they use on the Velocity. Maybe a new replacement for the Velocity coming soon? Honestly I can't really tell them apart either so whatever it is I won't be buying it recently started playing whatever HVC's I can find for $9.99 and been shooting the best scores in two years with those so I am sticking with the cheapies.

Light gray arrows are used on the Pro V1, Pro V1x and NXT, also.  Or at least the "like new" balls I occasionally find have similar markings.

When you sign up, they ask you what ball you currently play. The ball I received struck me as the same as the ProV's that I play. I'm guessing that they match the new to the old, in order to see if there are real world improvements.....but who knows.

I got mine yesterday.  I did this last year as well.

So far they play similarly to a prov. They be a little firmer feeling. I think they sort of look like prov1x's.

Do you mean they physically look different or that's how they play?

I wonder if Canadians can do this as well. I'd like to give it a go.

I received mine in the mail yesterday - have a 4:15 tee time today to test/lose them

I think my full report to Titleist will include how they react to shanks, skulls, trees, and sand.

 

 

note: I will be keeping 1 just to display

I got "the letter" last year.

How they physically look. The play is similar to both but I have not decided yet which one is the closest.
