    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.

    Good info Simon, I have a dozen to try. I dream of the day I can firstly hit a knock down shot and secondly get 2 hops and some check :)

    Still have a couple of boxes of Pro V1's to get through but once I do, will definitely give these a try. My home course is Carnoustie, so often windy. Closed at the moment for obvious reasons so playing elsewhere for the next few weeks!

    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

    I know I don't really have the swing to game these balls but I just need to scratch that itch!

    Thanks for feedback Simon.
