Pro V1 Golf Ball, Best of the Field, Best in the Field!

Apr 11, 2007 (Updated Nov 5, 2007)
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Tremendous feel and accuracy. Very durable. Just check out how many Pro's use it.

Cons:They are not cheap. At over $3 per ball you hate to lose one.

The Bottom Line: Trusted and played by a high percentage of the PGA this golf ball is the best on the market.


My Pro V1 experience:
Using the Titliest Pro V1 and Pro V1X has helped improve my game, cutting my handicap about 15 strokes to a 5. Of course the ball didn't do it on it's own, that would be ridiculous! But it does give me confidence and reliability which are two huge things in becoming a better golfer.
It truly is the best ball on the market. I have gotten a little more distance using other balls that are harder, but as far as control and accuracy this ball is unsurpassed. I like using a ball that virtually all of the pro's are using and I gain confidence by using a ball that gives me the same results every time.
I love the new A.I.M. sidemark, Alignment Integrated Marking, it is an arrow on each side of the Pro V1 marking, where most golfers draw a line anyhow, this line helps line up putts.
I play a lot of golf on an executive course where I live. It kills the time, helps my short game, and I pay for it in my Home Owners Association anyway so it's almost free. By playing this short course, every hole is a par 3, longest about 220 yards, shortest 95 yards, I have had a chance to try many different golf balls. The Pro V1 out performed every other ball in feel, softness and control. I have gotten a tremendous amount of spin and have reached the point where I can actually control just how much I want it to spin. Thats having confidence in a golf ball. If you find another ball that can even compare to this one in softness and feel let me know.

Comparison to the Pro V-1X:
I get more distance off the tee with the Pro V1X than the Pro V1. The Pro V1 is softer and under less compression. The easiest way to tell them appart other than reading the fine print is, the Pro V1 has a black number, the 1X has a red number.

Durability:
The new Pro V1 seems to be a much more durable golf ball than the old Pro V1's, however, it still retains its softness and feel. One problem with older Pro V1's is that they were so soft they cut easily from a bad shot, cart path, rock, sand, or even just a hard iron shot. If you got more than one round out of a ball then it was surprising.
The New Pro V1 is much tougher and durable making it 2 and even 3 rounds before getting worn out or worn soft. The cover seems to be made of better rubber.
Its hard to say whether or not I am getting more distance out of the new Pro V1 compared to the older or even last years model. Titliest seems to think so, I am hitting the ball a little bit further but I am also getting stronger and developing a better swing. I guess the only way to find out would be to test a bucket of new ones and a bucket of the old ones. Let me know how that turns out.

Price:
What I have paid for a dozen of the new Pro V1's has been between $40 and $45. They are not cheap but they are worth it. You might not think so when you hit a 3 dollar ball into a water hazard but when your game improves you will see their value. At the larger sporting goods chain stores I can usually find them for $40, at pro shops before a round expect to pay about $13 for a sleeve, which translates to about $52 per dozen. The manufacturers suggested retail price is $58 per dozen, but the consumer should never have to pay this.
