Distance and trajectory are similar and the Hex Black is better in the wind but that whole spin thing is the deciding factor for me.

That's interesting as my resuts are just the opposite. Hex the longest followed by Penta5 and then ProV1. Of these three I find the Penta5 has the most balanced overall performance.

I did just by two dozen old Tour i (S)'s from Fariway Golf because they had them on sale for $19 and I thought I would play them this winter, but I will go back to the ProV in the spring.
I used to have a launch Monitor in my basement and tested quite a few balls. Back then, the Tour i(Z) was almost identical in distance to the ProV1x and the i(S) was identical to the ProV for me, with the V1x and i(Z) about 4 yards longer than the softer versions.

+1, i play the prov1x and the more and more i play the hex black, the more i like it...does everything the prov1x does if not better...only thing is i prefer the prov1x feel off the putter

I think the Penta TP5 are a quality ball also. I was playing the pro v1 for a while and then had some nike tours. I found the Nike tours high spin. The Penta TP5 is the best all round value ball going atm. Pretty close performance to the pro v but a fraction of the price. I don't mind so much when my jaws wedges eat them.
