    I am willing to bet a month wages that all those drooling over this article could NOT tell the difference between a first generation Pro-V1 and this new prototype.

    Titleist is “not ready to pass out any information on the ball” yet? Typical.
    I used to use ProV’s all the time until they has durability issues a couple years ago. Switched over to the Bridgestone B330S and haven’t looked back. As long or longer than the ProV1x, as soft and has as much spin around the greens as the ProV1, and more durable than both of them.

    Pro V1 x+ is a tour prototype. Rocco Mediate played one for awhile. It is a Prov1X cover and dimple pattern with the soft ProV1 core! I’d love to get my hands on some of those…and I am not a Titleist guy!

    At least most of you were chosen a second time to test the new Titleist ball. I had tested the last two versions but, obviously, my opinions were no good as I was not chosen for this round.

    One of the tour players gave my kids the prototype while he was using it on the range at the BMW Championship in Denver. The ball looked just like a Pro V1X, but said Pro V1X+ on it.

    I game the V1s only if I find those. And today I was lucky twice. The Tour S is probably as good as the V1 for any non scratch player and you get but more for your money. If money wasn’t an issue and I was playing more often I would only play the V1s.

    How about an improvement on price.

    Wonder if they are going to go into the 5 layer ball world like Taylor and Callaway. Typical Titleist is to have everyone else do it then they come out with the best version after the fact. Just like when they were last to get into the multilayer tour ball world.

    Leave it to Titleist to keep on researching and improving their product. No wonder they are the number one ball in golf.

    Be interesting to see what they are trying to improve on. I’ve used the Prov1x model for over 6 years and love the ball.

    I guess any improvement would be welcome even if it is only minor.

Cutting down driver vs Choking down – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been responding to an interesting question posed by WRXer ‘Vater’. ‘Vater’ asks:

“What’s the difference between just placing your hands an inch lower on the grip vs getting an inch cut off the butt of the shaft?”

And our members have been discussing the two different options and sharing their takes in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • TourSpoon: “Even when you get to your playing length, there are times when you may want to grip down for even more control. If you grip down every time just to get to your playing length, you lose that option.”
  • ecfritts: “I’m 5’7″, but I like most of my clubs -1/2″, even my driver. Doesn’t seem like much but it just feels so much better…to me. If I’m not mistaken Rickie Fowler plays his clubs 1/2″ short.”
  • animalgolfs: “If your desire is bombs away- cut it down. If your desire is accuracies- choke down.”
  • chippa13: “I have cut 1.5 off my driver, and I also choke down almost to the shaft. After many experiments with lead tape amount and placement, I am finally hitting driver well (the few times I actually try to use it) after years of being Steve Sax with it.”

What irons are left-handers playing? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our lefty members have been dishing on the irons currently in their bag. WRXer ‘1221’ is in the market for a new set and wants to see what other left-handers have been finding success with, and our members have been sharing their clubs in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • dclccoritti: “Titleist…all blades. Love the look of the new TM P7-CB’s.”
  • LeftyMatt24: “I’m in T100s bent weak. They are an awesome middle ground between blades and players. Titleist offers their full line in left and right-handed. The new SEL from Mizuno is a good option. Can’t go wrong with Srixon z785 either.”
  • The_Champ: “Ping Blueprint.”
  • Llefty: “Srixon 585 3-PW and Bridgestone JGR Tour B HF2 5-AW.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about playing both hybrids and driving irons

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing playing with both hybrids and driving irons. WRXer ‘achappy’ kicks off the thread and is interested in the prospect of playing both, and has reached out to fellow members for their thoughts behind the strategy.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Pepperturbo: “A few years back I tested hybrids, but never put one in the bag, never like the look. I have carried only Driver & 3/4 wd, and either a 1 or 2 iron since taking up the game and currently enjoy 718 T-MB 17′ 2 iron. It could be called a driving iron, but it’s just a 2 iron to me as it’s part of a set; U500 is a driving iron. My buddy, however, has 2 hybrids, 5wd and 3wd and most of the time hits them decently. He does not get along with long irons or a driving iron.”
  • LUXOR54: “I have a P790UDI and then go to a 21° hybrid. Like you said, driving iron is great for off the tee or low punch runners out of the crap. Hybrid is good for getting it up in the air and landing soft. For me, hybrids always go sky high, at least for me a driving iron is more versatile off the tee. High? Low? Stinger? You got it.”
  • MPAndreassi: “This is a great topic and something I talked myself into doing this evening. I’m going to be playing an HMB 3 (19*) and a CLK 4 (22*). The HMB I use for a ton of tee shots, punch outs, etc. and the CLK will replace my 4 iron. Into par 5s, from the rough.”
  • JackpotJohnny: “This is super interesting. I do it a little different I guess. I have an 18deg hybrid I will use occasionally off the tee and 2nd shots into par 5s. Then I have a graphite shafted 21deg DI that I primarily use as a rescue if I need to get out of trouble on par 5s where I know I can’t get there. And also sometimes off the tee.”
