FootJoy is well known for its innovation in footwear designs & comfort. Years of experience, latest technology and the vision to give the best comfort & style is the reason for success of FootJoy.

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.

FootJoy has used  laser plus last in Pro SL Model and it has a little more contouring in the sole than their standard Laser last.reviewsoleswing

Fortjoy’s technical team has worked hard to add the feature of removable insole & the insoles are very comfortable in terms of cushioning.

FootJoy team aimed at comfort and stability while designing the shoes. To achieve this FootJoy has added Dual Durometer design in the sole.

FTF form is used in the shoes which is 10% lighter than the traditional EVA form and the comfort is provided by the upper blue version. FTF also adds stability to the shoes.

To provide lateral support to the shoe, the white layer is designed into a shape that slightly extends beyond the edges. The colored TPU traction unit contains mini spikes that makes Pro SL different from other spikeless shoes.reviewsolestance

The other thing which makes it different from other models is, that it provides amazing comfort and can be used on all the surfaces, especially the firm courses whereas other spikeless shoes are not that comfortable in grass as much. It maintains the grip on the ground but doesn’t create mess because of damped grass.

At last, I want to tell you that if you are looking for a shoe with amazing comfort, style, stability, comfortable on firm courses, water proofing and the trust of FootJoy, then FootJoy Pro SL is an amazing option for you.

When you will try it you will automatically feel all the above mentioned features. You will feel the spikeless comfort, grip & versatility.

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!
