If its being tested as a possible competitor to the Chrome Soft. Wouldn’t you expect the price to be comparable?
Not really. Titleist is the price leader in every ball segment.
Perhaps true, but the price difference alone will make me keep playing Chrome Soft.
Now this really borders on the unelievable,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, unless
you lose 3 or 4 balls per round.
But are you seriously asking anyone to believe that for 67 CENTS per round you'd use a lesser ball (for your game) ?!?!?!
On a side note, I just purchased Maxfli U6 Tour soft for 2 for $35....as per reviews....this ball might be a steal.
Then again, maybe this answers my question.........
On a side note, unusual for me but today I played as a single mid-day at a local course. Being I just want to practice and try different balls, I used an AVX along with a Chrome Soft (my go to for the last 10 months or so) and a ProV1x (my old ball).
Very windy today and on 1 hole, playing directly into an almost 3 club wind, I hit the CS first. Pushed it a bit and although I caught it in the middle of the face, it was a high floater that I expected to go nowhere. Teed up the V1x and smoked a mid-trajectory bullet little draw right down the pipe. Teed up the AVX and pretty much duplicated the V1x shot.
Rode out to find the 2 Titleists literally 7 yards apart, less than 3 in distance. The CS was just in the right rough and when I went over to it it was almost 10 yards PAST the 2 Titleists.
Other than that, the 3 balls showed very little difference to me, either distance-wise or dispersion-wise. The V1x definitely feels firmer than the other 2. I'd say the CS & AVX "felt" pretty similar. Haven't done enough chipping and putting with the balls to figure out any real differences though.
