I have, they are worlds apart. The avx is a distance driven ball that does not spin all that well in my Opinion, the black is a very good all around ball. It does everything well. It won’t be the longest, or highest spinning but i think is one of the best that does everything good. It launches slightly high, that why I prefer the red of the two new mtb balls. Has good green side and wedge spin and is long enough you will not miss the very few yard you are giving up. The only really fault for me is that I feel it struggles in the wind a bit. The avx plays just fine in the wind, it is a longer than average tour’ish ball. It is good on full shots and off the driver. Wedges and green side lack.

BALL; various, ask me that day.

thanks so much for your review...very helpful...so it looks as though the MTB black will stay in the bag...i will play the avx's i have to try, but the price is high as usual for titleist...should be no brainer :)

jeez, make me go look for it? very interesting. there are a few balls on there that show really high spin that are generally not considered high spin. also, the cut blue did very well in this test. highest spin number.

So you're seeing a lower flight from Red vs. the new Black? Driver specifically or across the board.

Apology in advance if I'm trying to pin you down too much given you said "slightly" ;-)

Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

Yes, i saw lower flight out of the reds. i like the red better than the black for a number of reasons.
