No one has played both balls and wants to share their thoughts?

It's pretty much negligible. This chart shows ProV1 spins more than say TP5 (barely), but then the recent Rick Shiels GCquad closed data set shows the TP5 spins more (for him). Same thing with Chromesoft... spun more for him than ProV, but it's splitting hairs really.

I also wouldn't let data bog you down. A few hundred RPM of spin isn't going to be hugely noticeable on course.

I don't see the value in a 50yrd spin test.  Most amateur golfers lack the needed ball striking skills to add or subtract ball spin at that yardage.
For me Pro V1x spins more than Pro V1 and Pro V1 spins more than Chromesoft.   IMO - the amount of ball spin depends on the person's skills.

I dunno.  I gamed Chrome Soft for years, tried various ProV1s along the way.  I have never had a ball check up so well and consistently than the Snell MTB Reds on 8-iron and lower.  The charts don't really illustrate that.
