Has anyone played the new Pro V1x and compared it distance wise and spin wise to last year's version? Let us know.

I dont like the new cover, I have a set of tour spec irons and they tend to leave groove marks across the new cover, tried the new Nike Platinum and liked it more. No groove marks, further distance, nice spin and great feel when putting.

Hmmmmmm.....I thought he new cover was supposed to be harder, therefore less spin and such. This sounds like it may be softer and sheer more.

To me, the new x didn't have the "snap" off of the face that last year's did... Also with short irons/wedge shots, the trajectory is like the ball goes up and out great, then just stops and falls straight outta the sky... I'd say on the short irons it's 5 yards shorter...

Yes, I have played the New Pro V1x.   It spins less and is about 5-8 yards longer with the driver, but only a little longer with the irons.  It has a great soft feel that Prov's are famous for as well as responsiveness around the greens.  If you thought that the old pro V1x almost had TOO LITTLE spin for you then back down to the pro V1.

The old pro V spins too much and flies too high and after playing the new X today....I'm not impressed. It spins less than before and feels much harsher to me. It may be a few yards longer than the old X but that's neither here nor there as it was plenty long before. The feel is gone and that's the bad part.

Oh well, mayber time to try the Nike Platinum or the HX Tours or the new Brigestones.

My impressions of the '05 ProV1 have been, having gotten some back in November last year, is that they play similarly to the '04 ProV1x - from a feel and distance point of view. And I thought they were harder than last year's ProV1.

AND my sentiments of the '05 ProV1x's were that they were terrible - too hard (cover-wise) and harsh feeling - and with a lower ball flight. Or in a way, that they were similar to the Nike One Black's (rocks with swooshes).  And I was told by my sources at Titleist that they made the new X to compete head-to-head with the Black - plain and simple. ;)

:busted_cop:


(but just did run across a brand new dozen of the second-generation ProV1* - that somehow got hid away in the closet)

I have just bought a sleeve of the new ProV1x's.  Normally I play the HX Tour and Nike Black because of the excessive spin of the ProV1 and the X.  I have however spent the past few weeks playing the Nike Platinum.  The balls performance is pretty decent but it lacks feel and sound off the club.

Maybe you need to swing the driver at 130mph to fully appreciate the Platinum but with my speed of 121, I did not like it at all.  I much prefer the Nike Black HX Tour.  If the new ProV1x is similar in playing character to these two I am sure I will enjoy it.

The new ProV1x is a rock.  I do not like it at all.  When I play a ProV1, I will use either the last ProV1x model or the new ProV1 because it is the same thing as the old X

I didnt care for this ball. It seemed very hard and was poor around the greens. I loved the old proVx, that was my ball. Since the new one has came out I have had to switch to the Platnium.

Wow.  I can't believe all the bad feedback about this ball.  I swayed from the Prov1 line and tried a bunch of others.  Eventually I came back to the new ProV1x.  I love it.  Great distance off the driver, good trajectory and feel off the irons, plenty of spin with the wedges, and I love putting with it.  

5 out of 5.

I am too cheap or poor to play these balls all the time ( i would rather play a cheaper ball and just replace it more often )
What i did find with this ball was similar to others.  The cover marked up easily (maybe i just noticed more because of price per unit)
The one thing i did enjoy it was the feel it produced where it counts... on the green with the putter. It reminded me of the old titleist balata cover balls of about a decade ago. Nice soft feel...
just a litte too pricey for me   :drinks:

I'm with you swingblade.  I have still got a couple of boxes of 04ProV1x's left and am dreading the day they run out.  I play in a lot of amateur tourneys and will have to find a replacement ball for next season.  The 05ProV1x just felt too firm, I never got the feeling of fully compressing the ball on full shots.  It 05 curves less and has a 'Pinnacle' feel off the putter.
I am trying the BlackMax, B330 and B330s.

They definately are a harder cover.  I switched to the ProV1,  Bridgestone, and the Hogan Tour Deep.  The Hogan does not spin as much but the distance is about the same as the Titleist.

I switched to the Srixon Z-UR/Z-URS and feel they perform similarly to the ProV1x. I still like the ProV1x, but they are pricy.

to be honest, I don't see any real difference between 1 and X. It's only tour pros or through extenive testing that you might notice a small difference. Not enough however, to get you spinning it back with the V1 if you get nuthin' on the X. Beautiful ball though.

i like the pro-v1 better than the x because the 1 is really great at the short game. it takes a one hop stop. also i heard that the x is for people that have high swing speeds. i swing about a 99 to103, and i heard that's not fast enough, so i cant compress the ball as much. so i use the 1 for more compression. i just hate the amount of SPIN the ball gets off the full to knock down wedges. very very hard to control.

i was not impressed w/ the 07prov1x either.  seems that the cover shears more, and distance is same or less.  feel around green seems same or slightly less.  I still prefer the previous prov1x.  I am also experimenting with the new Nike Platinum.

I personally never played the old V1X, right now playing the 07 V1X and I love it.  Before I had played the HX TOUR and I find that the 07 V1X is longer and feels better.  My vote for the new 07 V1X is two thumbs up! :(

i don't like the new prov1x either. it seems that the first few times you hit it with the driver its longer than the old x, but it wears out too quick and just feels horrible even after one or two holes. the nike balls are catching up to titleist in my opinion and bridgestone is doing well.

Not true.......two threads were merged and somehow the original dates got absorbed and reflect '05 post dates. However, this thread is meant to discuss the '07 ProV1x's.

Thx, Cardo

I tried a sleeve.It is drop and stop and hot and long with the driver.Feels great during putting.
Played prov1's and one black prviously.
Any good deals on Prov1x's?
Does bulk buying save you any money?

For me,I never cared for the pro v1.Maybe it's pschyological?? Im not a scratch golfer like most of you guys around here either though.I play to about a 10 {I miss too many greens} and I play and love the Callaway HX tour ball.The 56 is better around the greens but I just have NEVER played well with a prov1.I hit and love their driver's {I play a 905 8.5} and wedges but I think it more of the ball not liking me than me not liking the ball.
I do love this site though!! Im new here and love it!!Been looking for a site like this one fer a long time!!
