Which Ball?

I have a slow swing speed since I'm young. I hear the e6's are good for slow swing speeds.I get free prov1's. Is it worth buying e6's or should I stick with prov1's?

If you get ProV1s for free, it takes the cost per ball out of the equation, so stick with them (or at least stick with something)

Pro V1s could be hurting you since you have a slow swing though.  You may find that you get more distance with a ball that is more low spin.  You might want to try a ball like the Bridgestone E7 or really any ball in the $20 a dozen range.

In the uk there are pro v1 & pro v1x One of them is softer for a slower swing speed, but I forgetwhich one, as I only play Bridgestone.

We have both here as well. Check out the bottom of this web page for differences: http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/family/index.jsp?categoryId=18812356&camp;=PPC:8LeNfBzr:2327131126%7Cb:+titleist%20+pro%20+v1&mkwid;=8LeNfBzr&002=2391128&004=1094025048&005=20267202557&006=2327131126&009=b&011=titleist%20pro%20v1x%20vs%20pro%20v1

Free is good!  Do you get all Titleist balls for free, or just the ProV1's?  If it's all Titleist balls, you might also try some of their other offerings.....maybe the DT Solo as a first option.

Failing that, the ProV1's may not be right for your game.  If you find something you like better, maybe a lower spin ball that gives you some extra distance, I'll bet you can find some barter opportunities. I'd be happy to buy, and swap you a dozen of just about any ball you like, in exchange for a dozen ProV1's.......and I'd be surprised if you couldn't find a bunch of others willing to do the same locally!

I second the vote for DT Solos. I like them because the don't spin too much but still stick the greens pretty well.
