Currently using Vice Pro neon red and just purchased a bunch of orange S3.  Has anyone tried both the S3 and Vivid XT? Appreciate any insight along with the swing speed of the reviewer.  I just got back from a golf trip where a buddy played the matte color Volvik and I am a big fan of the look and various colors.  Thought maybe the Vivid XT would be a good choice.

Just got a dozen Volvik S3, have not hit them yet.  Comparing against Callaway Chrome Soft.  S3 is clickier off of the putter.

I hit a Volvik (matte finish) Vivid that I found, felt good - not as soft as Chrome, seemed to do most things well.  I am not a fan of colored balls though...the matte finish is pretty unique.  I just find it distracting to look at when over the ball.

Will post my thoughts of S3 vs Chrome after a few rounds.  About 95 Driver SS, ~7 handicap, smooth swinger vs hitter.

The S3 and the prior gen Pro V1 are very comparable.  Blindfolded, I wouldn't be able to tell the difference.  This should be close to a Vice Pro.

The XT is unlike anything else out there.  Cover is hard, inside is hard.  It's a rock that can go really far if you swing fast.

Vivid XT is straighter, and has a higher ball flight. You'll wanna be swinging over 100 mph.
