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.
Hey guys, I know there is a thread about Vice Pro and Pro+ balls, but Vice now has a new ball, the Pro Soft. These balls come with a "matte" finish, not a glossy finish, and also are available in colors. They are supposed to be designed for slower swing speeds, and since I'm 63 and have lost some speed and flexibility, thought I'd order some. So...I thought I'd ask if anyone else has tried them. My first impression was this balls looks weird (because the finish is flat, no shine), but after a few swings that didn't bother me. What struck me was this ball is like soft butter off my putter, but felt very firm off my driver. It seemed to have really good spin...a 7 iron from ~148 yards out stopped about six inches from its pitch mark, and a 6i from ~160 to an elevated green ended up about four feet from where it hit. Wedges checked up very nicely on short pitches, when sometimes I get roll out with my regular ball. The ball feels really good off my irons, and like I said above, it feels firm off my driver but like soft butter off my putter, and I've never played a ball that felt like that before. Am I crazy, or can a ball feel that different with different clubs? Overall, I think like this ball better than what I was playing (Wilson Duo Spin). Has anyone here played these?
