Vice Golf Balls - Anyone Tried them?

If you buy a VICE golf ball that is meant to be equivalent to the direct competition they are designed to compete against, Vice Pro versus Pro V1, then you are getting a ball that is equivalent. There are no significant differences. I wouldn't say one out performs the other.

That was my experience. I wouldn't say the Vice Pro outperforms the Pro V1, but it behaved exactly as I expected the Pro V1 would, only with more flare ;-)

At nearly half the price, I know what ball I'm buying.

Other than the deep discount for buying 5 boxes, it sounds like the price is about the same as the Snell My Tour Ball. Has anybody compared them?

The Snell MTB is more comparable with the Pro V1x IMO, so that's the Vice Pro Plus which I have not played.

Both are good golf balls and can hang with the big boys. You can't go wrong with either. I was actually going to restock my balls with Snell MTBs until I heard about these, and besides being slightly more expensive than the Vice Pros (you also need to buy 6 dozen MTB as opposed to 5 dozen Vice Pros for the discount), they only come in white.

Everything I read said they are fairly comparable, so I really did choose the Vice Pros because they come in pink.

Just had a look, not available in the UK, and even if they were they would cost twice as much

They are, you might need to change the location to UK.

a dozen Pro balls works out at £29 I believe. The more you buy the cheaper they get. I got 5 dozen for £107.

Got my Father's Day present early because I'm going to play tomorrow morning: 5 dozen Pro Flamingos. They are very pink. And sparkly!20160617_182942.jpg

I doubt if anyone wants to pick up my golf ball on the course now. B-)

Any reason why you went with pink?

Style! B-)

I also wanted a ball nobody would pick up on the course, accidentally or on purpose. Turns out they are easy to spot on the course, too.

Except for all the elderly ladies :-P

You could use that ball for putt putt and I don't think they would even realize that it's not a cheap ball  :whistle:

Funny you mention this, I lost my tee shot on one of the holes I played and sometime later, the woman playing behind me asks, "is this your ball?" and proceeds to give me the ball I lost.

It'd be great for the soft feel on the putter, yes. But when I hole out on 18 I want my ball back :-D

I am playing the 3-piece Pro Neon balls. 

These fly farther than my usual 2-piece "soft" ball choices. I don't think they spin/stick as much as the ChromeSoft or ProV. 

If you order 5 dozen, then the price per dozen drops to 24.95. Compared to other tour ball options, it's a good deal. However, I question durability after landing on a rocky cart path the other day and discovering a little chunk of ball missing. Like peeling a hard-boiled egg - a little shell and a little meat. Never seen that before.

It's a cool product. Targets a younger market niche. And, when's the last time you bought something from Munich?

 

I had the exact same thing happen with a white colored Pro. I too have never seen a ball do that.

I bought 2 five dozen packs.   Both Vice Pro, half in white and half in pink.   I really like them.  I give the edge to the Snell ball for feel and short game.  But these are good balls, no doubt.  

They stop nice on the greens.   I like to use the pink balls when playing with other people.  Nothing like driving a par 4 with a pink balls, or hitting a par 5 in 2.   It's the same ball as the regular Pro ball.  

I also feel like the durability is a little bit of an issue.  I've hit a couple of sand shots and feel it dinged the ball a bit.   But they do live up to the slogan of a tour quality ball.   I'd play it in my club championship.

I just got some of the Vice Pro+  golf balls yesterday, played 18 holes with them.    When I hit the ball in the center of the face of the Driver, it really takes off.  I did hit the Snell and Vice from the same location on a couple of holes with 8 irons and didn't notice much difference on distance traveled.  

So far the biggest difference I noticed was in chipping and putting, the Vice balls seemed to check up a little quicker and they have a different sound when putting.  It felt like I needed to hit the Vice just a hair harder to go the same distance, although that could be because the Snell makes a louder sound off the putter face.

I'll be playing them all weekend and see how it goes.  But at first blush, seems like a good ball.

The only gripe is that they come from Germany, so took a while to get to US.

You testing the waters before you start cross dressing?? Ha ha. Takes some 'balls' IMO to flaunt THAT shade of pink on the first tee :dance:.

Bubba W outta switch too.. he can match his balls to his shaft (all kinds of pun intended..ha ha)  :banana:

All balls with a urethane cover can peel off. Used to happen I played Pro V1s too.

Don't worry, I usually carry about a dozen of them in my bag.

*Most people don't say anything after I outdrive them 30 yards on the 1st hole ;-)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*That's not entirely true. They usually say, "Good thing your ball is pink, it will be easier to find in the woods." :banana:

Not the balls I was taking about ;-). I love me a pre-pubescent maturity level joke every now and then.. :-D

    • Good and sad tales, kind of understand that. So I left Oahu that had high concerns of controlling it to an Island that had yet to get 1 case.  All was well until Wednesday 4 popped positive, Thursday 38 and today Friday 60 something. I was tested and none in my circle including an 85 year old woman has had any issues.  So the governor/mayor answer is a lockdown. How do you lockdown an island where the population is but a postage stamp on the entire island? No worries, I plan on golfing next week. I got to log a few more birdies on the 2020 birdie challenge. Aloha, iSank
    • What's the minimum camera quality will you guys consider watching? The rear camera for my phone is 2MP and the front camera is 0.3 MP. I only have one camera and a tripod, so I can't record the side and behind at the same time. Is that OK?
    • Day 50 - Hitting more balls indoors, just trying to get used to swinging indoors. 
    • We used lugloc and used it Hawaii to Scotland, Hawaii to Sydney, to Auckland and Hawaii to Pinehurst to Alabama to Hawaii, and a few west coast trips. I think when we landed in Edinburgh it took a 1/2 hr to confirm but was able to confirm at JFK, and heathrow. I have lost clubs before on a mainland trip and love seeing that the clubs and luggage are with me.    Aloha, iSank
    • Day 124.   I spent ten minutes after work hitting 7-iron shots, off a mat, into a net, real balls, indoors.
