    I am willing to bet a month wages that all those drooling over this article could NOT tell the difference between a first generation Pro-V1 and this new prototype.

    Titleist is “not ready to pass out any information on the ball” yet? Typical.
    I used to use ProV’s all the time until they has durability issues a couple years ago. Switched over to the Bridgestone B330S and haven’t looked back. As long or longer than the ProV1x, as soft and has as much spin around the greens as the ProV1, and more durable than both of them.

    Pro V1 x+ is a tour prototype. Rocco Mediate played one for awhile. It is a Prov1X cover and dimple pattern with the soft ProV1 core! I’d love to get my hands on some of those…and I am not a Titleist guy!

    At least most of you were chosen a second time to test the new Titleist ball. I had tested the last two versions but, obviously, my opinions were no good as I was not chosen for this round.

    One of the tour players gave my kids the prototype while he was using it on the range at the BMW Championship in Denver. The ball looked just like a Pro V1X, but said Pro V1X+ on it.

    I game the V1s only if I find those. And today I was lucky twice. The Tour S is probably as good as the V1 for any non scratch player and you get but more for your money. If money wasn’t an issue and I was playing more often I would only play the V1s.

    How about an improvement on price.

    Wonder if they are going to go into the 5 layer ball world like Taylor and Callaway. Typical Titleist is to have everyone else do it then they come out with the best version after the fact. Just like when they were last to get into the multilayer tour ball world.

    Leave it to Titleist to keep on researching and improving their product. No wonder they are the number one ball in golf.

    Be interesting to see what they are trying to improve on. I’ve used the Prov1x model for over 6 years and love the ball.

    I guess any improvement would be welcome even if it is only minor.

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best 3/4 woods off the tee

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the best 3/4 woods to use off the tee. WRXer ‘5hort5tuff’ is on the hunt for an “easy to hit fairway off the tee”, and is looking for suggestions from releases from the last five years. Our members discuss.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • TigerinTheWoods: “Sim Max has been amazing for me off tee and deck.”
  • Dpavs: “Rogue FW off the tee works for me.”
  • cw1209: “TM Sim and Cobra Big Tour. Don’t overlook less loft for a fairway wood mostly dedicated to shots off the tee.”
  • ZacR88: “My new Ping G400 3 wood with Hzrdus Black shaft is absolutely without a doubt, the best 3 wood I have ever used.”
  • Tampajoe3: “Callaway Epic Flash has my vote. It’s an important weapon in my bag. I did, however, have to add some lead tape to bump up the swing weight a little.”

What irons do you play? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the irons that they currently play. WRXer ‘Vater’ asks members which brand they have in the bag and why, and you can see the results so far after 189 survey participants.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Vater: “I use Titleist 718 AP1s because they cost less new than some used clubs, haha. In all seriousness, I love the quality overall, and specifically, I was looking for a set with a good GW – and most of all, I wanted to play a 4 iron again, and the 4 and 5 irons in the 718 AP1s are beastly.”
  • aadadams: “I use Taylormade Speedblades for about the last 6 years, they still work great for my game, and I don’t see a change in the near future.”
  • Celebros: “Cobra Forged Tour.”
  • jholz: “I am Cleveland, but towards the latter end of the glory days – CG7 Tours. About as good a club as money can buy. Wish I could find some CG7 Tour Concepts!”
  • gripandrip: “Srixon 745’s. Most likely may be looking to the ZX7 as a possible replacement. Love my Srixon irons.”
