Pro v1 substitute?

the RX series on bstones are low compression tour balls aimed at slower swing speeds
prov1 = b330s
prov1x = b330

B330S = Pro V1
That's how they line up with each other. B330 is the firmer ball like V1x, 330S softer like V1.
There's a wealth of info here on both balls, just fire up the old searcharoo. I'd suggest taking a look at the Wilson FG Tour ball as well. "Cosmetic blemish" balls can be had for < $20/dozen and most will tell you they play very similar to Pro V1

The E series balls are more specialised than the NXT offerings. e5 is a two-piece urethane covered ball designed to be a 'spinny' distance ball. e6 is a three-piece surelyn covered ball designed to have a high launch and reduce side-spin. e7 is a two-piece maximum distance ball. I haven't tried the e7 but the other two definitely behave as advertised.
The NXT Tour and Tour S are marketed as the usual 'long off the tee and stops on a dime, alternative to the ProV which by the way everyone should be using anyway'. They are very similar balls to each other with the S being the lower compression ball. So at Titleist S means 'soft' and x means 'spin' I guess. Neither of the NXT balls spin much in my experience and definitely not as much as the e5.
The NXT balls are OK but neither perform anywhere near as well as the outstanding e6 for me.
