Tech Talk: The Pro V1 features a core formulation process designed to improve resiliency, and the Pro V1x uses a dual core (soft inner, firm outer). Both balls make use of a urethane elastomer cover with dimples arranged in spherically tiled patterns for consistent surface coverage. The Pro V1x pattern encourages a higher and later peak trajectory; the Pro V1 pattern is for a more penetrating trajectory into the wind.

Verdict: Truly exceptional in all areas. Guidance? Pro V1x is for low spin on tee shots; Pro V1 is for softer feel in the short game.

    I have tried The Titliest ProV1 and yes it’s a nice ball but I like the Volvik Vista IV and Volvik Crystal 3 Piece a tad bit better for my game. I believe the Crystal 3 piece may be the best ball on the market today for everyone who isn’t a professional.

    I love the Titleist ProV1x golf balls. I’ve used these for over 5 years now and won’t be changing any time soon. They have the best feel amongst the top balls and are priced to match.

    I’ve tested a couple of other different brands but always come back to Titleist.

    I agree, 5 stars all round!

    sorry to go off topic but i think the titleist velocity is on par with these to golf balls, the distance is amazing and with a feel around the greens, sort of like a NXT mixed with a PROV1

    I was told by a a titleist club fitter that if your ball seems to fall out the sky with driver and fairway woods then the pro v1 is for you rather then the pro v1x. I get to much spin from around 120 and in so i used the pro v1x what gave me a little less rpm but it made my distance of the tee suffer. Now i have changed to a pro v1 my distance has got greater even tho i am using a softer ball. i have also switched to confoming grooves what help a bit but i have worked on taking less spin off the ball and now i have the perfect balncebetween distance and spin. Titleist pro v1 #6
