Of course, there’s always a small group of golfers clamoring to play what the pros have in the bag. With “Left Dash,” they’ll now have the opportunity to try the Tour offering and see if it’s right for their game. Whether the average mid-handicapper can actually tell a difference remains to be seen. The main difference between the two is that Pro V1x Left Dash is made for a higher launch with a low spin, while Pro V1x is for a high spin. Both are made for a good distance, but the spinning rate is different. Whereas the standard Pro V1 was made for mid-launch and mid-spin.

My gauge measurements tell me that the new Pro V1x is one of the most consistent balls in the database. Almost invariably, when we do find significant issues inspecting our cutaways, they correlate with things we see in our gauge measurements (out of round balls, and wide compression ranges within the ball itself being the most common). The Pro V1 line features Titleist’s most premium and high-performing golf balls. Of the two main models, the Pro V1 and the Pro V1x, and the lesser-known tour ball, the Pro V1x Left dash. The Left Dash model is designed to feel firmer and spin less on full-swing shots than the other 2 balls in the family. In this section, we detail the consistency of the Titleist Pro V1x Left Dash. It’s a measure of how similar the balls in our sample were to one another, relative to all of the models we’ve tested to date.The new design offered alternative performance to benefit some golfers, enough that it made sense to make Left Dash availablefor sale, rather than just players on tour. So, in the fall of 2019, limited quantities of Pro V1x Left Dash hit the shelves in golf shops. And, sure, in situations like these it’s reasonable to defer to the manufacturer’s assessment but given how Left Dash’s performance characteristics align with what golfers want ( more distance throughout the bag with enough spin for most around the green), I’d suggest the company is somewhat stubbornly missing the plot. In July 2023, Neil became just the 9th editor in Golf Monthly's 112-year history. Originally working with the best coaches in the UK to produce instruction content, he has also presented many Golf Monthly videos looking at all areas of the game from Tour player interviews to the rules of golf. Pro V1x was made for an increased spin on air. High spin often becomes an obstacle to gaining height. Titleist’s PGA Tour seeding of its new 2023 Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls began at the 2022 Shriners Children’s Open in Las Vegas (although several pros actually started using them the event prior, at the 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship).

The combination of a soft cover, firm inner casing layer, and progressively soft inner cores allowed Titleist to decrease spin in the long game and increase distance on full shots, while maintaining the short game spin that Titleist golf ball users have grown accustomed to in recent years. 2023 Titleist Pro V1 vs. Pro V1x Titleist classifies the Pro V1x as high-launch and high-spin. Keep in mind, this is relative to the rest of Titleist’s premium “Tour” offerings so while greenside spin should be ample, the Pro V1x isn’t likely to be one of the spinniest balls on the market off the driver and irons. Before Left Dash hit the market, the standard “X” was the longest ball in the Titleist lineup and should still more than hold its own off the tee. Titleist Pro V1x – Compression It’s exceedingly rare that Titleist lets a ball slip through that doesn’t adhere to USGA rules. With that in mind, it’s not the least bit surprising that 100 percent of the sample was both weight and size conforming. There are golfers out there who do spin it too much with their scoring clubs and who do hit it too high, so it's a great option. We speak to hundreds of golfers daily and softness is a massive preference." Tom says: "If you're a golfer that needs a bit more height, Pro V1x will give you that. It's a higher-flying golf ball through dimple pattern. It spins more than Pro V1 when you're playing irons and wedges - your scoring clubs - and it feels firmer than Pro V1." AVX

Pro V1x Left Dash isn’t as popular as Pro V1x, instead having nearly similar specs. Only 5% use the Left Dash model of Pro V1. Price True Price is how we quantify the quality of a golf ball. It's a projection of what you'd have to spend to ensure you get 12 good balls. For more on that, and how it compares to the Tour Soft, make sure to watch the accompanying video at the top of this article. Long irons: A+ amazing. Nice compressed feel, nice high ballflight, perfect spin into greens. I struggle getting my long irons in the air. These are amazing.

Tom says: "Velocity is a preference ball in terms of feel. There are loads of different colour options when it comes to Velocity, but for me, the USP with Velocity is a higher ball flight. Last but not least, this is the softest ball in the range in terms of compression. Many golfers will be familiar with TruFeel but who exactly is it aimed at? Overall, this is clearly a great performing all-around golf ball. It performs exceptionally well across all categories. Personally, it felt too hard for me around the greens, but Titleist do produce some other great options in the Pro V1 and Pro V1x, so if, despite its really solid testing scores, it still isn’t quite right, you can still get the same performance out of a different Titleist. Bryson is swinging it up to 148mph clubhead speed during training. It takes a very very firm ball to not turn into a marshmallow when it’s compressed at 135+mph. I’d be curious to see if Bridgestone doesn’t release a “Bryson Ball” kinda like how the XS is the “tiger ball” If you're like most golfers, you'd probably love a few more yards off the tee. The problem is, you don't want to sacrifice. You don't want to give up the high level of performance in other phases of your game that you've come to expect from Pro V1, Pro V1xand AVX.In the deep recesses of the golf equipment forums, there have always been rumblings about the different versions of the Titleist Pro V1. Whether they were alternate models designed for certain players or old versions clung to by loyalists, they were a subject of fascination. In the fall of 2019, Titleist brought this topic to the mainstream by releasing the Pro V1x Left Dash. A previously Tour-only ball was now available to the public, but is it a good choice for regular golfers? Titleist R&D originally suspected that Left Dash would suit a small segment of aggressive, fast-swinging players who impart high spin on all shots tee-to-green, but they discovered something different in early prototype testing.Many players saw gains in ball speed and driver distance. In the iron game, because of its steep angle of descent, players were still able to hold greens effectively with mid and long-iron approach shots. R&D had anticipated the firmer feel and lower spin of Left Dash may not be preferred bygolfers, but a large percentage ofthe players who tested the ball commented that Left Dash still felt responsive and it provided very manageable spin and control in the short game.

Mid iron/scoring irons: B more clunky feeling, the ball is much harder than ProV1, so it doesn’t feel like the ball compresses with these clubs. Ball dances on the green just like you’d expect, however. I felt like I might’ve been losing a few yards in mid irons. Not a problem if it’s predictable/dependable. That's not bashing Titleist however. They make it clear that the left dash is (really) only made for pros, and maybe a small percentage of amateurs. I certainly don't have a 120 swing speed, and don't have that much spin on my launch anyway, so balls like this don't mean much to me. To make it easier for the audience to understand which one is the right one, we will provide a comparison table below. If you read carefully, you will discover the key differences between Pro V1x and Pro V1x Left Dash. Features Outside of this elite group, however, the ball doesn’t have a massive following, which is why Titleist has been content to keep it on Tour. With the release of low launch/spin AVX last year, Titleist now has a ball for every conceivable elite player profile.The Titleist 2023 Pro V1x golf ball, on the other hand, has 348 dimples, a red number, and it has a 4-layer construction (urethane cover, casing layer, dual core). The Pro V1x will offer slightly more spin in the long game and a higher flight, with a firmer feel than the Pro V1. We already discussed that the Pro V1x left dash is made for a lower spin. Because of aerodynamics, lower spins help to get higher heights.
