First Look 2018: Pro V1 & Pro V1x balls Review

First Look 2018: Pro V1 & Pro V1x balls Review

Total there are 8 different models of Titleist Pro V1/V1x from 1999 to 2014, and every model had a special feature which made them a hit from other competitive balls available.

In this blog, I will cover the latest hits of 2017-2018, the pro v1 and pro v1x. I will guide you about the special features these balls have from other available balls and what are the things which make Pro V1 & Pro V1x two separate models.

Titleist 2017-2018 Pro V1 is a 3 piece solid-core ball currently sporting 352 dimples pattern whereas the Pro V1x has four layers with 328 dimples.

This was about the features of the balls, now let’s talk about how these features make V1 & V1x different models.

The Pro v1: The pro v1 provides a softer feel on the club face because of its in-built technology of 3 layers & more dimples ( 352 ). Because of these technical features the ball generates low long game spin, less iron spin and high short game spin which gives it consistently mid-level fight as compared to pro v1x.

The Pro v1x: The four layers of construction and less number of layers than v1 makes it less soft than pro v1 and similar long game spin, more iron spin, higher short game spin, higher flight compared to v1.

Should I play with pro v1 or pro v1x?

Titliest Pro V1 Pro V1x Golf Balls Let’s understand out of the two which ball is perfect for you. The engineering of pro v1x provides it consistent flight with more distance more iron spin and higher short game spin.

On the other hand one more point is there which should be considered by all the golfers is that a golf ball must perform for all the shots during the round. Since the only dynamic force which controls the ball is the external force supplied by the club. Thus different shots require different swing speed in order to execute them properly because the swing speed required for driver is different for that is required for putting shot.

The best option you have to check out which ball is perfect for you is to test out them on the couse yourself. Once you have gone through both the models then you will clearly get which model is working perfectly for you & making your game better.

As a golfer, we know that a perfect golf  shot depends on  number of factors from the ball’s dimples to club head’s design. Thus similarly every swing is different & a single solution can’t fix everything. A golf ball that is exclusively engineered for low flight & less spin which is perfect for your fellow golfer might not be a good choice for you.

reviewcomparetongueThe DryJoys, one of the casual shoe from FootJoy was equipped with spikeless versatility with amazing golfing performance. The shoe received more appreciation from Tour players & amateurs than the expectations of FootJoy.

The most important thing is, FootJoy has worked really hard to improve the stability of Pro/SL to support the ankle & rear of the foot.

This stability comes from the innovations in leather material in upper and the X Shaped leather straps beside ankles on each side of the shoe.

The tongue area of Pro SL is a wider U shape than its predecessors but they are as comfortable as DryJoys when the broad laces are tied up.

There is one unique set of laces with the shoes and are designed to match with the base colors of all the four styles.

FIRST LOOK REVIEW: 2018 Titleist AVX Golf Balls

The Golf Balls manufacturers are really working hard in getting the balls softer & softer in their updated models. Such an advancement has been introduced AVX Golf Balls by Titleist.

Titleist, after having done a lot of research in the market through its distributors, through customer interviews and feedbacks collected directly from the users, has worked on a new design to deliver a greater distance by reducing the ball’s spin & released Titleist AVX Ball.

AVX name was given by the internal product development team which eventually became the name of the upcoming product & is an abbreviation of ‘Alernative to Pro V1 or Pro V1x’.

Titliest’s Research & Development team has launched the product with an edge shift in design & technology by improving the formulation with the same ingredients. The ball is still a three piece ball & using the similar urethane cover to Pro V1 called GRN41.

The shift in dimple design with 352 dimples uses a caternary design instead of the traditional spherical one as in the previous models. In simple language, its latest design results in a lower flight because of its sharper sides and flatter center section.

Titleist has also taken care of the visibility of this premium ball by launching it in Yellow colour.

AVX also has a characteristic of low spin due to its design, thus achieving more distance. In general, less spin is good for distance but bad for control on landing.

Titleist also claim that in their upgraded model AVX, the urethane cover enhances the experience of short game with a tour performance to give golfer the control which otherwise might be lost with a ball having low spin.

To test all these characterstics, we tested them on the range with Trackman to see the differences between the AVX and Pro V1 and also whether the AVX will suit the game.

We started off with wedge test where we hit all the three balls with a 50 yard target. All the three balls, the pro v1, pro v1x & the avx were almost identical for spin & carry. There was a difference of 200rpm, but that is not even noticeable for tour players.

The differences become more noticeable with 7-Iron. According to the trackman numbers, the AVX spun 1300 rpm less than a Pro V1 and 1700 rpm less than a Pro V1x which are significant numbers.

As a result the AVX was 7-12 Yards distant with a lower ball speed, which may be was due to variations in strike, so if the ball speed was the same, then it could cover more distance.

The lower landing angle is reduced to 3° because of low spin which won’t let the ball stop quickly unless it is already hit higher than the average.

Now, let’s talk about the performance with the driver. With Driver, AVX resulted in 250-300 rpm less with lower flight which enhanced the distance.

These were the results we got for our team with our equipment, that may not be applicable for everyone.

The review is written to clarify the difference between AVX and Pro V1 as both have a similar price and, as the name suggests it is an alternative for those who hit the ball high & produce too much spin.

Thus, added advancements in AVX has made it better than its predecessors. The balls are equipped with experience of Pro V1 & Pro V1x with piercing low ball flight. These all are my views regarding the AVX, what do you think about them, let us know in comments!

The looks of the shoe are fairly conservative with the options of an all white, all black or white with navy.

The company has taken care of stability & comfort by using the technology “Advanced Responsive Cushioning” midsole abbreviated as ARC which creates a reasonably rigid sole unit.

The duratrex molded TPU outsole provides amazing grip to the shoe & also increases the comfort.FJ18Mens_ARCSL_59705_SOLE

These shoes are similar to their predecessors such as Pro S/L in terms of comfort & style. FootJoy says that all the previous experience they have had in shoes segment has lead them to their latest model, The ARC SL. In their previous model, The Pro S/L, customers experienced that the grips of the shoe would last at most, only a single season. But with this updated technology, it is expected that ARC SL grips will last a much longer time.

On the course, the experience of walking in these shoes is quite comfortable & the grip perfectly suits this type of sole. It was comfortable even on a damp, soft parkland & it hardly picked up any grass.

The upper leather is designed to give it a one year waterproof guarantee & it does the job quite well. It kept the elements away from the shoe & enhanced the comfort during the walk.

The upper leather feels very plush. To add the feature of waterproofness, FootJoy has provided a membrane lining inside the leather, rather the leather itself being treated to make it waterproof as their other models. Hence, there is a dual barrier, making sure that water stays out of the shoe.

This model can be compared with their premium model DNA helix collar because the combination of padding with high heels provides the same comfort & style in both the models

Apart from its amazing technical specifications, FootJoy has tried their best to maximize the comfort in a waterproof shoe at a great price point.

The FootJoy team has really worked hard to balance the comfort, style & quality at a lower price point without too many sacrifices.
