Titleist has developed a new method of making the golf ball cover called Thermoset.
While most golf balls are made by melting urethane around the ball, Thermoset urethane is created by adding liquid materials to the mold and allowing them to chemically react.
This creates a softer cover for better feel around the greens without sacrificing distance off the tee.
That said, the Pro V1 is a little softer off the putter than the Pro V1x. Both versions help pitch shots by generating exceptional spin for superb accuracy and control from around the green.
While both balls offer excellent distance and performance off the tee, Titleist recommends you experiment with both and make your decision based on the right green-side performance for your game.
The Titleist DT TruSoft golf ball is a very low compression ball - DT TruSoft’s compression numbers fall in the mid 50s - and is designed to reduce spin on long shots and give you more spin on short shots.
But Titleist engineers designed the TruSoft with feel as their primary objective.
In fact, the TruSoft is the softest feeling ball in Titleist's line around the green and is quite similar to the NXT Tour S off wedges and putters.
DT TruSoft features include:
Titleist's Velocity golf balls are designed to yield maximum distance for a wide range of golfers.
As a mid-market golf ball looking to balance distance with tour-style touch, the Velocity has a firmer feel yet good softness around the greens.
Velocity will give you plenty of feedback on the club face to help make consistent shots more easily.
Titleist's Velocity offers golfers with mid- to- slow swing speeds a good combination of value and performance.
The Titleist NXT Tour golf ball is a 3-piece ball that features a large dual-core center with a very soft inner sphere and Titleist's Fusablend® cover.
This combination allowed Titleist to engineer the NXT Tour to fly a little lower with less spin.
Golfers with swing speeds in the 80 to 90 mph range should get good distance off the tee and good performance around the greens because of the softer core.
The NXT Tour is a good alternative to the Pro V1 for golfers in the 7 to 20 plus handicap range.
