Titleist Pro V1X Vs. Titleist Velocity Golf Balls Comparison Overview
Golf is a game that demands constant scrutiny. You have to finely tune what clubs you you have in your bag, what shafts are on the clubs, what grips they have and you would be doing yourself a disservice if you weren’t also scrutinizing the golf balls you’re using.
It can be really tough to pick out all the small differences between golf balls so to give you some help we have put together the following comparison article.
Titleist Pro V1X Golf Ball Overview
The Titleist Pro V1X came out as a companion ball to the wildly popular Pro V1 ball which is played by many prominent tour pros.
The Titleist Pro V1X balls have a low flight trajectory and produce a little less spin off the tee than the previous Pro V1’s.
This makes them great to use on drives if you have a pretty good swing speed. They are also slightly on the firm side even though they have a urethane cover.
We were getting good distance with these balls. Off the tee we were averaging close to 200 yards.
Off the deck we were getting 170 yards on average with a 4 iron. Spin rates stayed pretty low off the deck and the flight stayed low too.
It should be noted that the Titleist Pro V1X balls have high compression ratings so they would be best for players with fast swing speeds.
Titleist Velocity Golf Ball Overview
The Titleist Velocity balls aren’t tour grade balls like the Titleist Pro V1X; but if you are looking for help with distance they would make a great choice.
The LSX core of these balls really makes them fly. The core does an exceptional job of preserving all energy from your swing.
Overall, the Velocity balls played longer than the Titleist Pro V1X’s by an average of nearly 12 yards.
That was the distance difference from the tee. Off the deck, the gap gets a little narrower.
We tested the Velocity balls with the same 4 iron we used with the Titleist Pro V1X’s and we were getting about 7 yards more out of the Velocity balls.
These balls have a slightly softer feel than the Titleist Pro V1X’s but spin rates are about the same.
The Velocity balls are the ones you’re going to want to use off the tee while the Titleist Pro V1X’s give you better greenside accuracy.
