I have. It felt more like a better E6 than a worse B330.
Basically felt like a really good distance ball with some spin defeating qualities.

I see the TP5x mentioned here. It comes to mind for what you're talking about. It is a very good ball.

I don't think it's low spinning at all. At least not compared to a srixon xv or B330.

I've not tried the MTB but this would be the first time I've ever heard of it being mentioned as lower spin than similar Tour balls. Most people in the Snell thread seem to find it spins plenty.
Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

I've messed about a little with that AVX ball from Titleist and it seems to be lower spin than ProV, across the board. But they may or may not ever make that a real product so it's not something you'd want to switch to.

TP5X easily... great overall ball

Next in line would be Chrome soft X, imo.

Agree with this- AVX spins much less than the PROV/X. Less spin of any premium ball I have played. Nice one hop and stop performance

What do you all think is the best low-spinning "Premium" ball on the market today?  I historically have played the v1x, but with all these prov1 changes this year, I am interested in maybe changing my ball for this season.  My home course has firm greens, as we changed to new MiniVerde Bermuda 5 years ago, and I have no problem with greenside spin using the older v1x's. However, I would like a lower spinning ball for irons and my woods.  What is out there?

a few days ago, Kevin Na said on his instagram that the 2013 Prov1X is the lowest spinning ball available. check it out. I have 1dz left but i save them for when i go play really nice courses. they pop up on ebay from time to time...

16 v1X is lower spin off driver than the new version too.... in my opinion they ruined a good driver ball with this version of the v1x
