PostSubject: brand new pro v1 2013 model at lower prices   Fri Jun 07, 2013 6:05 pm

Hi Guys, would like to share on how i purchase my golf balls, so that if anyone uses these balls can get them this way at a cheaper rate.

I bought 8 boxes of pro V1 2013 at 359 USD from a US site , and shipped it to a US address using hopshopgo. from there, i shipped it over to singapore for a shipping fee of 48.34 USD

I spent a total of 407 USD buying8 boxes of pro V1, which is S$513 at a conversion rate of 1.26, which brings the price to S$64 per box.

It is pretty cheap in comparison to the prices here, and the whole process took about 1.5 weeks to complete.





so for those who do not like used pro v1s like me and find that the price is a tad expensive in singapore, you can get cheaper rates like this and save in the long term.

the greens of 2013 have been improved due to technology.

based on past experiences...

i lost balls more than get birdies per round....

thus older balls give better returns...

If you delve into the nitty gritty of pga tour players, you will be surprise that some of them are still using older models of ProV1s.

Changing a ball is a very big step for tour players and some are reluctant to change.

FYI, I still prefer the 09 V1x though I tried the 2013 ones. It's just that I have been using them for a few years now and am reluctant to switch even when I have the new ones at home.

its 'all in the mind' if u dun hit it consistently thats for sure.

There is a difference in ball flight and trajectory if u are used to a certain ball for a period of time.
