I have been trying to order these things for 2 months now, and they're always out of stock!  I have plenty of '15 ProV1x still, but dammit!  I want this ball in Lime!
I'm just kind of bitching here, nothing really to say.  Please, Vice... get some some Pro Plus Lime in stock.  K thx.

I swear I saw a few days ago a message that they would be in stock on Aug 1.  Now it looks like all neon stock is out across the board.  Yes, fleabay is the other option, however Pro Plus neons are getting harder to find.

It's honestly getting ridiculous. I don't understand how they could have supply problems this bad. I've wanted to try the pro plus in both neon and red, but haven't had a single opportunity to order them.

What could possibly be holding up production on these? Has someone else moved in and bought out the factory they were getting their balls made at? It seemed like these colors were new, yet they've been out of stock ever since I've seen them on the site.

Guys, don't best them up too bad.  From what I can tell, the demand is higher than we think for high vis urethane balls.  If you're complaining then you know they perform well.  I know a buddy of mine and I each ordered 10 dozen for a tournament we put on (they were very well received) and I can imagine that others place big orders like that knowing the supply is lower than the demand.  Just order at least 5 dz next time you get the chance and hang on to them!  Hakuna Matata!!!  :)

So I ordered a dozen off here two days ago, and have yet to receive a shipping confirmation. Specifically the Pro Plus Limes.

If they ship I'll update, but I have a bad feeling about that lol.

Were they sold by Amazon or a third party Marketplace seller?

Mine were from Amazon through Prime. Pro Soft Lime.  You gotta watch though. Sometimes it says will ship in like 2 months.  When I ordered it said in stock. I had them a day later.

Right now my Amazon app says In stock.

It does seem odd to me they have been out of stock for so long.  At least twice, I have tweeted them with expected ship dates ( in stock dates for them) that were missed.

Alright, so I got confirmation that one dozen Pro Plus Lime have shipped. It says that it is vice shipping them, so I think they are selling what stock they have left on Amazon only.

This amazon only stock is selling for 3 dollars more than what they have listed as the most expensive dozen on their site. Maybe they're trying to pocket a little extra money from Amazon? Seems a little odd to me...

I got a box of the pro soft lime from amazon a couple days ago. Had someone with Prime order for me because when an item qualifies for free shipping they just hold orders to make delivery take longer. Eager to test them out tomorrow. As for the pro plus, says there's like 3 left in stock.

I was curious about this as well. I noticed that they say matte finish. is that new? I have some of the pro+ reds and would not say they are a "matte" finish. its a good ball. I was wondering about the the pro softs as I want a little more green side spin. I am not too concerned with a little loss in distance. the pro + is perfect everywhere else. just want a little more green side spin.

I like the texture of the lime and also would like some of the Pro+ in white only if the cover texture is the same.

Gotcha.  Confused by someone else's post perhaps... my fault.

Not sure about that either though, I guess... they don't feel more tacky than a Srixon XV, Cally CSX, TP5, TP5X.  Maybe I'm just not that tuned into the feeling.  Still a very solid ball for the price though.

The Pro Soft Lime's are not a soft ball at all imo. I play Chrome Soft or CSx normally but gave the Vice a try for the most part based on looks and they are still a urethane performance ball. Definitely different feeling and sounding balls but perform about the same.

I agree. Though, I don't know what it is about those CS / CSX's but, I very very rarely have to clean them off of mud.

The Vice Pro Soft definitely tend to get dirtier. Maybe it's the finish on the cover.
