Actually it might be a Chrome Soft with the triple track.

Supposed to be a great ball. My local store is telling me they are flying off the shelf. AVX had the same reception initially. Now the ProV1 and X current generation are selling fast too. The bridgestone balls always seem to have high stock when I am at the store as well so I am guessing they aren't particularly popular.

The weirdest thing is, the Chromesoft Truvis when initially launched were nowhere to be found. They still sell fast. But, my current shop can't seem to keep more than 10 of each model or color on the shelves at a time. Other balls and brands have at least 20 dozen stacked high.
What a time to be alive

Surprised someone like Phil would want all the alignment lines.  Yeah his versa has the contrasting colors, but just a simple, single alignment line.

Triple Track Technology increases the ability to line the ball up correctly. It's science.

He’s had the three lines on his ball for some time, since last season IIRC. It surprised me when I first saw it, wondering if Phil marked his balls that way or if it was a Callaway thing.

So, for those of you who use these alignment lines while putting, does it screw up your alignment when chipping?  Now you are looking at lines that are crossways with your line.  If they work when aligned on the green, shouldn't they screw up your vision and alignment when they are crooked?

Are do you just ignore them?

I'm a fan of a the most clean look possible. maybe from years of balls having one logo and little else.
prefer if possible to align it with the logo facing away or down. it seems to be more quieting to the eye.
putter has an alignment mark. look at the hole and decide a line that the ball has to follow.

at times we'll stumble across a lost ball so marked up it looks like a subway car in New York City. baffling.

currently playing:
Steelhead III - D
Warbirds, 3+, 4
Hogan BH-5, 3-PW
Wilson DynaPowered SW
Ping Anser
it works

when I need a change, there are 12 bags full to choose from .
