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?

Titleist 917D2
Titleist 917F2
Titleist 818H1
Titleist 718 AP1
Custom Newport Select 2.5
Titleist AVX

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.

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.
