Anyone who is a regular golfer knows about Titleist's famous Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls. Many people swear by the effectiveness of these balls compared to other average golf balls, but the question that everyone always comes back to is: "Are they worth the extra money?" In this blog post, I will review the differences myself and compare them to some of my shots with other average and more affordable golf balls.
These balls are advertised to be the best on the market, each ball having a different area of focus.
The Pro V1 is advertised to be the softer of the two gold balls. This means that compared to the Pro V1x, the Pro V1 will have less iron spin. Another feature of this ball is a lower ball flight. For players who already hit the ball high, this ball might help them control that height and gain a little bit of distance.
The Pro V1x has a harder feel than the Pro V1, giving the golfer more iron spin and a much harder feel. The trajectory of this ball of the club is supposed to be higher, which can be a huge help to golfers who struggle to hit the ball high.
My Honest Review
I've been hitting both of these balls for many years, and I can honestly say that the advertised differences are present. However, although the differences are noticeable, they are not as big as most people may think. The only MAJOR difference that I have noticed between these golf balls compared to cheaper ones is the spin. Both the Pro V1 and the Pro V1x provide excellent spin for your iron shots. Most people who golf are aware of how much spin can affect your shot, especially when hitting into a green or trying to maximize your distance off the tee.
I would agree that the Pro V1s and the Pro V1xs are among the superior golf balls on the market. However, I do believe that only the Pro V1 is suited for beginners because it is a much more forgiving golf ball than the X. If you are a more advanced or experienced player, I would recommend either ball that compliments your game the best. Both of these balls are great options, which is why they are so highly regarded in the golf world.
