I played the past 3 versions and liked them all. I recently snagged 2 dozen each of the 2013, 2015 and 2017 balls.

What is everyone's take on which version is best?

Team Titleist

915 D2 10.5*
915F 13.5* & 16.5*
716 AP1 - 4-W
Vokey SM6 52* & 56*
Scotty Cameron Newport 2.5

I have played very many rounds with the 2013, quite a few rounds with 2017 and only a handful of rounds with the 2015 (I still had plenty of 2013 on hand when the 2015's came out). If I'm honest, I just can't see any real differences among them for my game.

Possibly the 2017 has a tiny fraction more spin than the 2013 around the greens but that's most likely a change in my technique over the last couple years and not a ball thing.
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 don't have any actual data to back this up but I think the 17 version is longer off the driver.

Best is a totally subjective word. If you consider more spin to be  "better" than unless you're a robot, your strike pattern will have more to do with spin than the ball will. If you're talking feel, then I would say maybe '17 is a hair softer/more muted than '15, but to say that's better, is up to you.

3.2013

I wouldn't kick the '17 out of bed for eating crackers, but I got along better with the '15.

1. 2017
2. 2013
3. 2015

Is how I would rank them. I like the 17' PRO V for the lower ball flight, it works well for me as I hit the ball high normally.
