Mickey, hope that you can help so I can switch to a cheaper ball.....
All i'm saying is that if you'rer a highish handicapper with major directional issues then you probably need to fix the swing more than you need an expensive high-spinning ball cos the latter ain't going to make your directional issues go away.
What if I have no major directional issues? Am I good to use Pro V1? Btw, will using other ball help in the direction issue?
But if you like the feel of a more expensive high-spin ball and think these give you more confidence or enjoyment - even if misplaced - then go right ahead if cost is not a concern. In fact, you should probably stick to any brand of ball that gives you more confidence around the course, whether its cos of perceived distance, feel or trajectory advantages or simply just cos you like the way its name sounds.
What do you mean by "misplaced"
I posted what I did because I feel that sometimes as consumers we need to remind each other not to get so caught up in the technical bits that we forget that it doesn't need to be as complicated as it sounds or looks.
If this is the case, why don't everyone use range ball to play in the course? I think Range ball have the least technology and one will confirm not to catch up in the technical bits
A more technical pov is that if you're a slow swinger with an already too-high launch angle, then yes, the high-spinning ball will likely not be that great for you. Even if you could do with a higher launch angle, the more expensive high-spin ball may not offer you that much advantage over a lower spin ball cos your slower swing speed may not enable you to eke out the best from it as to make a measurable difference.
What about a slow swinger who can't generate enough spin? Will the Pro V1 help? In your opinion, will the Pro V1 have more advantage over the a lower spin ball in approach shot and short game?
Trust that helps.
It will help if you can suggest some other ball that can match Pro V1 performance around the green and feel on green. Note I am not talking about distance here

For those who have directional issues, avoid ProV1 because the ball will definitely not help.

Let ProV1s be for those who can keep their ball in play (mostly to play branded balls) and especially for those who can hit the ball well.

The rest may be better off buying cheaper balls until they can keep most of their balls in play. Till then, better to just pick up 'lost' pro v1 that magically flew from the other fairway. cheers

Finally, someone is making sense here.

I have nothing against Pro V1. I play Pro V1 mostly. But when I come to treacherous holes or tight fairways sandwiched between thick tropical jungles, I still switch to experienced balls, could still be used Pro V1.

Of course, anyone can use Pro V1 if they don't mind losing them. It's their money and who am I to say how they want to spend their wealth.

But to claim that Pro V1 will improve your handicap regardless of your skill levels is stretching the truth a little. It will help mid to low handicappers, but I am not sure about beginners who top/skull/slice or hook every other shots, as we all have gone through that stage.

Thanks, JC.

Titleist folks, what's the difference between "best" and "excellent" for durability?
