  1. Hello everyone,

    I just joined Team Titleist. I have been playing golf for three years now. I currently am only carrying Vokey Wedges in bag and plan to switch to a completely new set of Titleist clubs when I graduate college. My question today is about the new AVX balls: Will they help me off the tee? I am a pretty solid iron and wedge player, but my tee balls have been killing me the past year. I have been playing the Pro V1 for the past two years and just wanted to see what you guys think of the new AVX balls?

    Thank you for your time,

    A.J. its tough to say, not knowing what you are struggling with off the tee. The AVX has a bit if a lower flight off the driver so if you are wanting more height off your drives, this may not be for you. Get a sleeve of 3 balls and give them a try.

    Not trying to be sarcastic but you should go take a lesson if your "tee balls have been killing you."
    Just my opinion but if you're a good iron and wedge player it sounds like you have a flaw in your swing on the tee. Good Luck in golf and your career after college.
  4. Depends on what you mean by help. I am a 2hcp and have always played the prov1 or the prov1x. At my course if you spin the ball too much you have some challenges on some greens. I seem to spin the proV too much but like the feel on the diver and putter. I switched to the X to reduce a little spin but hate the feel on my putter. I just tried the AVX today and it is absolutely perfect. I can still spin it enough to hold greens and the soft feel/sound on my putter is great. It seems to have a great piercing ball flight and sounds wonderful off the driver. I think my new ball has been found.

    They have a lower ball flight than a Pro V1, so if that is something you are looking for than they will. One of the best way to find out is to buy a sleeve and play a couple of rounds alternating between the two balls, or I would try to find a Titleist Ball fitting and see what will help you best. It could be a Trusoft, AVX, Prov1x.
    Good luck A.J.P
  6. I'm a believer in the AVX - softer feel, more distance, and less side spin with a driver in my experience. Buy a sleeve (or 3 dozen like me) and try them side by side to see how they work for you.
  7. I've gamed the AVX for a few thoughts
    1. Noticeably lower ball flight with the driver.
    2. At least a half club longer with irons.
    3. Great feel (softer) with irons, wedges and putter.
    4. Does not spin as much around the greens as a PV1/PV1X.
    5. Great wind ball.
