Only tried Pro-V1 once which is "donated" by a fren...

The spin really so much that even when it dived into the water, it got a bounce off the water surface and get on the green on a PAR3!!! Smile

But i still cannot afford to use one cos I my shots are hazards finder!!! Razz

Actually I tried ProV and Nike before.....but my opinoin must be taken with a pinch of salt....coz my std is no where like you lah......

ProV is softer than Nike.....the latter is macam like a rock......the way the ball react, more feedback with ProV .......but for my slow swing speed...if kena sweet spot, the Nike went further....vis a viz ProV...at least to me....but any off centre hit, ProV...a little tad better.

I doubt the Nike Vapors would be considered premium balls but I'm liking them quite a bit. Decent distance and decent control, to me anyway Smile

I have used quite a bit of Nike Ones, Pro Vs and V1X the past couple of months. Here because its less strict, I tend to play 2 or 3 balls per hole when we are stuck behind a slow flight or just for practice when its deserted.

The only advantage in performance that the Nike Ones have over the Titleists are that the outer covers are slightly more durable.

Spin - U can't beat Titleist. The Nike's spin is good but not as predictable on full wedge shots.

Distance - The Pro V1X wins here. The V1 is good penetrating into the wind but avg ard 5-10yds less for me into a headwind. The Nike just flat out balloons for me.

Putting Feel - Pro V1s win here. Nike Ones feel slightly firmer. V1X is very very close to V1 but I'll put it in between both.

Chipping - Again, Pro V1. Nike doesn't do too bad for these short shots but its slightly firmer in feel. V1X feels soft but roll and spin quite similar to Nike Ones.

Price - Nike Ones are a good USD$7 per dozen cheaper. 2nd hand balls are not as readily available here so alot more people buy 1st hand and this is sometimes a deciding factor.

I haven't put the Bridgestones B330-S against these balls objectively when playing. I have used them before and find them decent but the distance is not really much different nor does it spin anymore. Feel-wise its a tad softer than Nike Ones.

When you are out there and the course is deserted, try all those you have in mind and see if you have a preference of 1 over the other. I am always trying to find a good and cheaper alternative to the V1x with other balls but the performance always lures me back to it.

When I get a box of Pentas soon, I will let u know if its better.
