    Didn’t appear that the shafts were pured/spined either which surely at this price should be standard.

      Did I miss the ‘altering of the lie angle’ for each club when cutting lengths? Surely they are not using the same angle for each iron?

      The mojo is all in the clubhead and the shaft is only an appendage for the grip…. and by charging $400 per club you know it’s gotta be better, gooder, superior to anything else on the market. Doncha know .. 😮

    missed half of it out

    the ferrule that centred the shaft so they can use tapered shafts is interesting

      It’s a compromise solution that inserts a ferule which changes the ultimate feel of impact from the clubhead to the shaft to the hands. It’s a chintzy solution to keep costs down.

    This is just club assembly, just like all the other club assembly videos. Show me how the heads are made, the forging process, the bolt assembly…

Titleist AVX golf balls passed the test, are now available across the United States

Published

on

Titleist’s AVX golf balls first came to retail as an experiment in three markets — Arizona, California and Florida — from October 2017 to January 2018. AVX (which stands for “Alternative to the V and X”) are three-piece golf balls made with urethane covers, and they’re made with a softer feel for more distance than the Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls.

After proving their worth to consumers, Titleist’s AVX golf balls are now available across the U.S. as of April 23, and they will sell for 47.99 per dozen (the same as Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls) in both white and optic yellow.

According to Michael Mahoney, the Vice President of Golf Ball Marketing for Titleist, the AVX is a member of the Pro V1 family. Here’s a basic understanding of the lineup:

  • AVX: Softest, lowest trajectory, lowest spinning, less greenside spin and longest
  • Pro V1x: Firmer than the Pro V1, highest spinning and highest trajectory
  • Pro V1: Sits between the V1x and the AVX in terms of feel, spin and trajectory, and will appeal to most golfers

Different from the Pro V1 or Pro V1x, the AVX golf balls have a new GRN41 thermoset cast urethane cover to help the golf balls achieve the softer feel. Also, they have high speed, low compression cores, a new high-flex casing layer, and a new dimple design/pattern.

For in-depth tech info on the new AVX golf balls, how they performed in the test markets, and who should play the AVX golf balls, listen to our podcast below with Michael Mahoney, or click here to listen on iTunes.
