    2013 Titleist Pro V1 & Pro V1x

    Its that time of the year. Every 2 years Titleist launches their new Pro V1 and Pro V1x at the Las Vegas tour event going back to the year 2000. The new ball will be officially launched as their 2013 line and I am sure that there will start being reviews rather soon as Titleist sends out their test boxes.

    Once again we are looking at the Pro V1 being a 3 piece ball and the Pro V1x being a 4 piece ball.

    I have been an avid pro V1x user since the 2008 line. For me I get the best distance off the tee and the right amount of spin on the greens. While I like other golf balls as well these I always come back to. So I am excited to see what the new line brings to the table.

    Seriously. Tappin'.

    JB, any ideas on what they did in the newer versions of these balls apart from the standard "more spin around the green, more distance off of the tee" marketing?

    They are not releasing any info as of yet ary, to just about anybody. We got some standard information, which in a roundabout way says exactly what you just said. More should be coming soon as we get into November. I expect the marketing to be geared to most used on tour again.

    I may have a 3 ball sleeve of these on my counter right now. I was going to play one tomorrow and see how they work. I really like the prov1x but I just can't justify the price.

    I've heard great things about this new line on the golf channel. I'll be curious if any of them are an improvement over the previous years. Interesting they use a two year cycle.

    What was this years Prov1? A two piece ball? In the past, I have played the Prov1x. But for some reason, this year I noticed myself playing the Prov1 more and more. Seemed like I got a lot more distance off of the tee and had more control around the greens. Hopefully they make them more durable than this years model(s). But in all reality, what more can you ask for out of these balls?

    3 piece.

    These balls will really have to go some to get a chance from me. The price is unjustifiable compared with similar performing balls (for my game) and I can buy a ball which simply outperforms them (again, for my game), for about 2 thirds of the price.

    I thought the current version was their best yet, they improved the durability which for me has always been the biggest complaint I had with the balls. I'm sure they'll sell a ba-jillion dozen of these new ones as well. It just blows my mind how many golf balls they sell. It seems that every 3rd ball I find is a new Pro V1 too....goes to show you something I think. I don't mind, I give them to my dad when I find them, he loves it.
