So last night I got to play 9 holes with the new AVX ball. I switched from Pro VX to Pro V after their trajectory changes last year as the lower I can hit it the better as my swing speed is high and generate a lot of spin.
So 3 times I hit my T-MB 2 iron ober 300 yds off the tee along with a 5 iron going 250 down our 4th hole. So distance is impressive although ground conditions are hard I would say they are longer off the tee.
As for the short game, the spin generated on knock down shots was 2 hops and stop so I was impressed by that along with the check I could generate chipping around the green.
Putting, the ball felt a little harder than the Pro V but quickly got the pace of them (also been out of the country for 2 weeks and the conditions have changed massively).
So overall I would say I’m impressed with this ball and will game it again Friday in a knockout before deciding whether to use it in my club championship on Sunday. I will update thread after the weekend with further thoughts.

Hi Simon. Thanks for sharing. What's finish like on the AVX? That is, I've always like the non-glare finish on the Pro V1 compared to the shiny finish on many other golf balls. Cheers, /Morten
