Vice Golf Balls - Anyone Tried them?


Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried the Vice line of golf balls?  They look very intriguing to me, I just wanted to see if anyone on here has tried them or even use them regularly.  I currently switch around golf balls pretty often depending on what people give me as gifts and also what I just impulsively buy at Golfsmith.  I've bounced from the Taylormade Burner, to ProV1s, to ProV1xs, to NXTs, and Nike RZNs lately.  I really want to try and settle on a consistent ball to hopefully get more consistent results out of my game.

Just did some comparisons with Vice pro + , prov1x, chrome soft x, tp5x, snell. All were tested on my launch monitor by my Stepson using wedge to target of 147hrs. All balls delivered spin over 8000 t

Style!  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.

Merged this into an 8-page topic for you, @cooke119.

Never heard of the "Vice Ball" until now. 

Myself, I am a big fan of Bridgestone, and/or Volvik golf balls. These are my first choice, as they deliver what I want.

@SavvySwede I believe plays these balls.  The 4 piece Vice Pro Plus, for me, might be worth a try.

Do they call them Vice because it is a downright crime to hit them? Or maybe, because they are stealing your money when the sell them to you?

I've seen adds in the golf mags for them.

Based on what I have read, $15 a dozen for a "tour" ball doesnt seem like them stealing your money.

 

Can you believe people actually pay for noodle golf balls? Same thing. If its crap Ill go back to the ProV and Chrome Soft. If its decent it makes for a good casual round ball.

Just trying to make a joke. Vice (like Miami Vice) seems like a funny name for a golf ball.

They are German made balls and from what I see have received some favorable reviews

My buddy gave me a sleeve of their "shooter pro" version which is a 3 piece ball made for mid to high swing speed players. My driver swing speed is 112 so I think I qualify for this ball. 

First impression is they are gimmicky and a bit busy with logos and whatnot. They feel like a premium ball off the putter face...so we shall see how they perform on Sunday from tee to green.image.jpeg

Going by the website I think the only difference between the Vice Pro and the Pro Shooter is the graphics. Well, that and it's ability to double as a basketball in a pinch.

So after one round, I think the Vice Shooter Pro is a great golf ball. I can back up a pitching wedge a few feet, it checks on low chips, it goes as far if not further than a Prov1X. For $15 a dozen (when ordering 5+ dozen) I think its a hell of a steal for a good golf ball.

I actually think it is more durable than the ProV as well. The cover wasn't cut from my wedges and I played with the same ball all round. Only scuff mark was from hitting a cart path. I will more than likely switch to this golf ball once I run out of my ProV1X I got during the Titleist Loyalty program this year. Overall I was pretty impressed.

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?

Thanks for the review.  I reckon I will order a dozen (or maybe their "sampler" pack) to try them out.

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-)

Been playing these balls since around January this year. 

 

Amazing ball.

 

I initially went with the 'Tour' version to see what the fuss was about and it was the best surlyn ball i've ever played. I then upgraded to the 'Pro' model and again, amazing ball. Will never use another ball.

 

Check out the golf labs testing on these balls as they outperform Pro V1.

Finally was able to play some this weekend, as my girlfriend got me a dozen of the Tour and Pro models.

 

Long story short, made a double eagle (first one in my life) from 235 out (3 iron).  It was a pretty incredible experience.  Not that the ball completely made it happen, but lets just say there are now good vibes in my head when it comes to Vice golf balls.
