The 2013 Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls 
By DanielBush on Feb 28, 2013 06:54 AM
Titleist’s newest Pro V1 golf balls promise more distance, softer feel and more durability in a tour proven ball that already has won seven professional golf tournaments around the world.

Let’s look at the evolution of these balls. The first Pro V1 appeared at retail in early 2001. In every odd year since - 2003, '05, '07, '09, '11 and now '13 - new versions of the Pro V1 and Pro V1x have been unveiled.

The 2013 Pro V1 promises softer feel than previous versions. According to Titleist, the new ball is the softest Pro V1 ever produced. If the Pro V1 is softer, the Pro V1x is longer. There are many more refinements to these balls, but golfers in general will be talking about the softness of the Pro V1 and the length of the Pro V1x.

Titleist says each model goes farther than its predecessor. One reason is that both produce less spin and fly lower, which enhances rollout and provides longer total distance. In comparing the Callaway FT-iQ Driver, the Pro V1x has always flown marginally higher than the Pro V1.

The compression of the Limited Edition Napa Putter is down about six points, from the mid-90s to the high-80s. The Pro V1x remains close to 100. The aerodynamics and dimple patterns are the same as the 2011 versions. “It still has 352 dimples and five different dimple sizes,” said Bill Morgan, senior vice president of golf ball research and development.

Morgan was referring to the Pro V1. The two balls always have had different dimple patterns, with the Pro V1x at 328 dimples.
