Looking for some advice.. Always have played the Pro V1X up until I decided to use the TP5X last year. Now that the new year rolled around, I'm looking around for a potential new ball. Love the firm and clicky sound, but the TP5X just couldn't seem to generate that much spin form 30 yards and in. Thinking of trying the V1X again or the CSX. Any suggestions?

I like the MTB Black, Tour B XS, ProV1, and Ksig currently. TP5X launched too high and didn't have enough greenside spin for me.
What's in my bag:

Cobra Fly-Z+ 3W w/ Aldila Tour Blue 75X  42.75"

Each "tour" ball you will have difference characteristics. What I have found is, PV1 checks up better around the greens, TP5X is longest, CSX is somewhere in between. Just finished testing the Snell red and black and was underwhelmed despite all the love on this site. I have settled on the 2018 PV1, which is now the low spin low flight version of the PV family. I just ran out of the Costco ball, but I enjoyed it while I had it.

I have about 4 different ones here to tryout and compare this year, once the dang snow is gone!  Ugh!   They are the CS Truvis (my current ball of choice), K-Sig's (3 and 4 piece ones) and the 2018 CS.  I haven't hit any except my usual ball yet!
