I have a complete Titleist bag, including the bag itself. (see signature)
I paid $499 plus for a new TS3 driver yesterday.
I then decided to buy the new TS3 fairway wood along with the driver ($299 plus tax) while I was there.
Iíve played Titleist balls since my first round with my Dad in 1968 as a kid.
And Titleist doesnít send me a couple of sleeves of new balls to try?

-The Proto 2019 feels soft but has a bit more ProV1x click to it than the 2017(forth layer?).
-Half wedge shots and chipping with wedges spun more than the previous 2017 ProV1.
Overall very positive so far from my side. Will probably try it out on the course in the weekend.

....but I might if I got a nice pack of socks with a sleeve.. ; )
I'm with you. A tour pro might pick up the differences but 99% of the people on this page can't. I'll stick to my $20 a dozen urethane balls and shoot a handful over par and laugh at the Titleist whores chunking $4 balls into the drink. To each their own though!
As a higher handicap player, I totally understand this thinking ... I did the same. If you're losing a lot off the tee or miss hit fairway shots and losing balls it's costly.
As I had explained to me, us hackers could use a lower spinning ball to help keep our errant shots in play.
Even though the premium balls are 'more spin' it's due to construction and is for wedges and Greenside control... Somehow, they seem to spin less off the tee and longer irons for me, so those horrid sliced are now more baby fades or light draws (getting lessons, fitted clubs and improving my swing has helped too).
But, big thing i found was 'when' I'm in a position to shoot into a green (becoming more frequent as GIR) the premium balls just stick, where the cheaper balls would roll through... That alone saved shots during a round.
Then, as I've worked on Greenside saves, especially chipping it close, the extra spin and "grab" has helped get it closer more often rather than having to use a chip n long run / roll I can now chip it up closer using more flight time to take out the nuances of the green.
So, even as a higher handicap player, you might be surprised at how a premium ball can help you score better. Yes, you will need to change your approach to certain shots, but, it is much more fun scoring better!
