  1. BELIEVE me when I tell you, Since I started playing when I was 12 ( I am now 49 ) I have just about tried them all in 1 form or another, Me personally kept coming back to the Pro V1 and Pro V1X series. Because they flat out perform for me . With other's you will find Bridgestone , Nike ,Srixon, and countless others and for the people that play them they are the perfect ball. My suggestion is settle on a ball then buy some grade A bals from a website and practice ONLY with the brand you have chosen. Each brand reacts differently to each person, I am currently playing to a 9 and will be a 1 or 2 this same time next year, Only reason i'm not there now is 4 knee operations on the same knee in 5 years including 2 total replacements and an infection that put me in the hospital for 9 day's ( Yes I am playing the sympathy card and will take all I can get ). I settled on the Pro V1 series because for me I can rely on 2 things 1) Consistent distance and 2) Work ability around the greens, IMHO if you can decide on a ball that does those 2 things for you.....You have found your ball.
  2. I play both, The X for wet or damp greens and the V1 for normal green conditions. Truth be told I am only getting about 3 or 4 yard's more with the X. I think it's probably related more to your swing than to the ball you are using,
  3. Thanks, Your Avatar is touching
  4. Well I am retired due to a job related injury, I had 2 surgeries to my knee and 1 year of rehab, Afterwards I was informed by the Dr. that after reviewing my job description he could not in good concious release me to return to my job. However I am capable of working so I am currently practicing to pass my PGA PATs, My former job was fixing underground water lines and I was there 15 years. It was a Government job so i get a nice pension but I want to return to the workforce.
  5. Thank you sir for the warm welcome
  6. Hi, They call me The Game, And yes its a play on HHH from the WWE, I am recovering from my second major Knee surgery in 9 months. Back in Sept of 2013 i had my second Total knee replacement on my right knee, In July of this year it became infected and I was in the Hospital for 9 days. I have surpassed where the Dr and therapist thought i would be, I said I will do whatever it takes to get back on the course. Today I hit 50 balls and was surprised by the results...I have a long way to go but I hope to be back near a 2 or 3 handicap by next summer, I look forward to learning and sharing stories with you guys. I come from Virginia and cant wait to get started...God Bless all
